As part of the far larger and longer trend of the Flyers not even being able to develop a D prospect who could beat out Gill, it's also concerning. Gus is the first guy in ages to break through, and apparently he's all we've got.
Thank you.

Basically they should have kept the little powder they had dry bc this inanimate object will be a non factor just like Shelley and the other locker room good guys. Again how did Shelley and Cote help us in the win column or with the locker room discord or the inconsistency this team has shown season after season?
And thank you.
