Their a bad ES strength team. Coaching, system, transition, etc. They lack a true #1 d-man and their 2 puck-moving d-men (Streit and Timonen) aren't that good anymore. Their forwards aren't very good defensively either. I know Philly fans love to talk about good defensively Couturier is (calling him elite, which I disagree with), but the fact that he was as a rookie their best defensive forward says a lot to me. And Giroux isn't a top 5 center/forward/player like some try to make him seem.
They look terrible. But it's only the beginning of the season, so who knows.
