The Flyers, after blowout losses, have historically always returned to tough, brutal hockey the next game. For better or worse, that is who we are, that's our identity.

I expect a low scoring, tight checking and ultimately nasty game tonight and yes, we have the right personnel penciled in.
Any three guys that can play a quality hockey game (such as an actual fourth liner in Hall) or don't tend to do extremely stupid penalty related things.

That identity of "let's play relatively useless players because they're tough and we play a tough game" sure as **** isn't working out either now is it? Now or in the recent past. That kind of mentality is the same thing some people hate and think holds the organization back.

Having two or even three players that just aren't NHL caliber is never having "the right personnel penciled in". Especially when you have guys like Gustafsson who have been benched for no apparent reason.
