We need players like bobby Ryan and a Jordan eberle type player who can control the play with the puck. Voracek needs to start using his body again, when he does that and protects the puck, he is elite. His back isn't fully healthy though so I will give him a pass for a little longer.

That's my take atleast. If we had one more player like a eberle or Ryan they could really set this offense up. Elite puck skills is what this team needs. Giroux and voracek and the only two who have that ability to consistently do it. Vinny is a little beyond his prime.
Ugh...this dude's name won't die. It's almost like Godwin's law...as far as bringing his name up.

Anyway, don't necessarily disagree with anything you are saying and have said it myself (we need more skill) but Bobby Ryan won't be coming here anytime soon..only when he is beyond his prime like Vinny..then we will sign him to a multiyear deal and expect him to be like Bobby of old. Seems to be the Flyers trend..hopefully Hexy changes that when he is in there.
