They'd have to have their legs unknotted after each period if put against shiffty, smaller forwards.
Trading Coburn at this point is a no go. He's been too good to give up for anything reasonable.
Simmonds is too important going forward.
Buff is not what we need.
I disagree. Grossmann isn't the plodding slowpoke some think he is. I've seen him win races for pucks and to get back after pinching more often than he loses. As for Schenn, the Flyers have played two left handers together quite often, so I don't see why they couldn't play two right handers if need be..third option, a good defensive D man is easier to find in free agency or in trade than a mobile/offensive D man.
