A couple of days ago, different newspaper, also has him as a center. I've seen him listed as both a LW and C.

Any news when Ben Holmstrom will be back?

He's the captain and leader of the team if I remember correctly.

He probably won't be back this season. He had ACL surgery.

Mark Alt is having a rough year this year. In terms of raw skill, there's lots to like about what he brings to the table. However, he's going to need someone to really help him bring it all together. The work ethic is there and at the very least, he should be a very competent bottom pairing guy. But, if someone can help him put it all together, he could be a real solid number 3 - 4 guy.

Who can help him put it together? Murray in the AHL?

That entire 1st line started their respective seasons in Trenton. Glad to see them regarded highly by an NHL mind in Murray, despite the team's overall struggles.

He's sitting at 88 points on the year. He's tied his career high in points.

OHL updates it stats pretty quick. 88 is the correct number.

If we have Laughton a look why didn't we give cousins one.... I think he will be one heck of a player, and his style of play is almost like he was born to be a flyers

I believe he'll play next year on the Phantoms top-6 along with Taylor Leier to get used to the pros.

He should see plenty of PP-time as well as 5-on-5 minutes.

If we don't buy Briere out, I think he will replace him on the wing in 2014/2015.

Leier isn't eligible for the AHL next year. It's either NHL or back to the WHL due to the transfer agreement with the CHL. We would also have to sign him to a contract. He currently does not have one with the Flyers.

I think his off the ice incident may have been a reason.

Philadelphia Inquirer article from February 14:

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...he_better.html

Quote:
NICK COUSINS laughed.

Surely, the Flyers' third-round pick in 2011 thought his new coach was joking when Sheldon Keefe challenged him in December to lead the OHL in scoring this season.

It was Keefe's first day on the job as coach of the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, brought in to replace Mike Stapleton midway through the season. His first objective was to meet with Cousins, a player he inherited with plenty of potential but a poor reputation.

"He was a guy I'd heard a lot about, from a lot of different people," Keefe said. "Frankly, not a lot of it was positive."

Cousins, 19, earned a rap as one of the OHL's troublemakers the wrong way: a talented but mouthy diva with a soiled off-ice history who wasn't interested in dropping the gloves to settle scores.

"I was the first one to meet with him here," Cousins said. "He challenged me to change. I looked at the stats, and I was 20 points back of the league leaders. I told him, 'We'll see.' I guess I've even surprised myself."

When Flyers director of development Ian Laperriere met with Cousins last week in their usual spot - a Boston Pizza restaurant in the small town on the Ontario border with Michigan's Upper Peninsula - Cousins was atop the OHL scoring chart with 84 points in 54 games. He now remains on top with an added 88 points in 55 games.
