It's do or die time for Holmgren, flawed Flyers

Per Al " one day we will get Weber" Morganti...

Pretty obvious the Flyers have had a flawed roster since last season...glad somebody from our genius press corps has picked up on it....

The loss to Boston was ugly in every area: effort, cohesion, discipline, and flat out talent. However, it was also nearly as ugly a few nights earlier at home against a Carolina team with not nearly the skill as the Bruins, and so too at Columbus, a team poised to take the Flyersí spot in the playoffs.

Flyers coach Craig Berube has pulled all the usual tricks out of the coaching bag, but he canít pull a rabbit out of a hat. Berube has changed goalies, benched players, moved lines, called unexpected practices, and sent out the storm troopers when he had to try to change momentum.

None of it worked.

The only logical conclusion is that this is not a roster from which you can expect long-term success. General manager Paul Holmgren made some sweet moves with an eye to the future with solid young players such as Brayden Schenn, Jake Voracek and Wayne Simmonds, but the collection of players appears to be unmanageable in terms of chemistry.
