This team had terrible defensive play from the forwards lately and people want to trade our best defensive forward in Couturier. He also has top potential if he can improve on his skating. I don't understand that.

The forwards were more of a problem than the d-men on this team last season. You can't just expect the D's to be the only ones playing defense. Look at Boston, that team plays a TEAM game and everyone is responsible for their own position. Most of the Flyer forwards only seem to want to think offense all the time when in fact they need to learn to play more sound positional defense. I don't remember the forwards being that bad on defense when Pronger was in the game, but that is because you would actually see him out there yelling at the forwards at times to get back and play D.
