That is also an issue, but not nearly as pressing as no two-way defenders. They at least have Couturier, Read, and Talbot to clean up the mess every now and then. But because of what he does, Couturier just might be the most overrated Flyer by their fanbase, they think his defensive skill is on par with Jere Lehtinen it seems.



I definitely agree on giving up Carle being a dumb idea. He WAS their transition game, forget that he was a part of it, he was it. Meszaros is absolutely awful now. I watched the Canes game and the some parts of the game against Montreal, I'd argue he was probably the worst Flyer on the ice from what I saw.
Yeah, I left in the disclaimer for Meszaros as I haven't watched him this year and his stats have been beyond brutal so far.

Holmgren is basically running the team as the average HF poster would; constantly trading everyone, signing free agents, and mistaking grit and toughness for defensive prowess.
