Maatta, a rookie, has been better and much more consistent than any Flyers d-man this year...
MAF is a mixed bag, but his ceiling is obviously much higher than Mason's.
I think it's close, but you guys do seem to have better depth at forward. I think the 3rd and especially the 4th line of the Flyers is better than that of the Pens. I do agree we have more potential at the blue line but that advantage gets negated because our coach would rather play the likes of Deryk Engelland than our young guns. Also, I think Brooks Orpik has been worse than any Flyer dman this season. All he does is turn the puck over. Really love that Olli Maatta tho. I think him & Matt Niskanen have been our top 2 dmen all season.
