Timonen trails Coburn and the traded Meszaros at production at even strength.

Streit is the only legitimate offensive threat the Flyers have from the blueline at even strength. It's been a problem since Pronger went down and Timonen regressed and it's not surprising that the Flyers have struggled at even strength since then.

Even strength points by the defense in 2013/14:

Streit: 25
Coburn: 16
Meszaros: 16
Timonen: 13
Grossmann: 13
Schenn: 11
Gus: 8
MacDonald: 3

I deride your truth handling abilities
