Somebody has to go, you aren't relying on kids at all, right now Gervais and somebody like Mesz will be scratched, you have a guy making 4Mil sitting watching the game. Massive waste of resources.
in all honesty a healthy mez plays 5on5 over streit hes going to bring a lot to the power play but I think expectations on him are pretty overblown. the sad thing is that mez has had a hard time staying healthy so the time hes spending off the ice will be on ltir and not in the pressbox. in addition timo has been a warrior for us but its not as if the effects of his age have been absent and sitting for a spell here and there wont surprise me. this isn't the traditional d setup more of 2a 2b with no one being exceptionally superior to the others. the advantage the flyers have now is depth but after gervais the dropoff is noticeable. that lack of salary comes with a lack of experience and development that can hurt you in the playoffs
