Line shuffling doesn't do a whole lot other than players having to adjust with different linemates again...this all starts with the Flyers defense.
They have been impatient with the puck..but that is a result of fast teams pressuring the D men. This is a personnel problem more than anything. Berube can mask it by getting the forwards to support the D men a little better but turnover prone D men like Schenn, Grossmann, Mesz and even Streit don't help when they act like the puck is a grenade on their sticks. Even the forwards are doing it in our D zone...players like Vinny etc. They can tighten it up and be more patient with the puck but only to a certain point since the players causing the turnovers are not as fleet of foot.
