Everyone lauds the Flyers ability to draft and develop forwards. They have gotten a lot of credit for Giroux becoming the dominant force he is, Voracek's step forward, Simmonds, Read, etc.

Knowing that... if the Flyers decide (which I actually doubt) to bring in Vinny LeCavelier as a 2C, doesn't that indicate that the people most in the know (Holmgren, Lavi, the assistant coaches) have deemed that Couturier simply is not ready to handle the 2C job at this stage? I would also indicate that they agree with the supposition that most have made that Schenn can appropriately be placed on a wing for at least the short term.

My feelings are that:
1. I am not so confident that Couturier is ready to be the 2C. He has the ability to be a elite 2C like Bergeron, but has more than a few things to work on to get there and I'm not about to put even more pressure on a rushed prospect.

2. I like Vinny, but have no interest in a bidding war for his services. That probably eliminates us already.

3. I'm also not confident that Schenn is ready to move to a wing. I hope he is as it balances our team more, but he clearly demonstrated last season that he plays better in the middle.
