He's the perfect 3rd liner, that can also kill penalties and is always at the top of the league in hits. He'll be an RFA this summer and was making $1.4m
I think this case is being overstated. Beyond Simmonds and the Schenns, the Flyers have a number of physical players: Hartnell, Rinaldo, Talbot, Rosehill (when dressed), Grossmann, the good Coburn, and McGinn (if he cracks the roster). Neither Giroux nor Voracek shy away from physical play, Read doesn't stand out either way, and Couturier will get stronger as he fills out.
