Grossmann sucks. I want him gone.
Not sure he totally sucks...kind of agree with Meltzer that he does a lot of things in the trenches that only his teammates can appreciate although I doubt they appreciate the panic clears that get picked off and turn into GA's....I sure don't!

In comparison to other NHL defensemen, I really don't think he's good. He makes turnovers left and right and it just seems like whenever he makes a turnover it goes in the net. Sure he might work hard, but I don't see it paying off.

Whenever he's on the ice, he just looks like a chicken with his head cut off.

This is awesome, and I ****ing knew it that Gus would be the one to get benched, just ****ing pathetic.

Get Berube the **** away from this team and force Holmer to step down already, this fascination with big slow D men is killing this team.

Bench Gross miles before Gus should even be considered, its sad that Gus and Luke is our most consistent pair.

I am not saying he deserves to get benched or anything, but to say he was the only good defender is simply false. He was terrible along with everyone else.

We treat our young puck moving D so well.

Normally I'd be absolutely furious, but the pounding the Flyers got last night already has me thinking everything is a joke anyway.

It's gonna be really neat when Hagg tries to make his way here, gets jerked around endlessly, goes elsewhere, and turns into a legit Dman.

Hello sort-of-Seidenberg. At least on the legit D going somewhere else part.

That tried and true Flyers D developmental path. Hasn't failed in 40+ years, except for the fact that is has for nearly everyone but Watson and Therien.

Therien doubles as a greatly entertaining radio broadcaster. So that's like two successful picks really.

Gus not playing tomorrow is moronic. I get that they're showcasing Mez, but why not sit Grossmann then? Or even Coburn? Shocker, I know.

I highly doubt we are playing Mez because we're showcasing him

Grossmann sucks when forced into a top pairing role. He's a solid #4, maybe a #3 when he is not nursing his ailing knees or shoulders.

You know your roster sucks big time when your top pairing consists of Coburn and Grossmann
I don't get why this team has one of the youngest forward corps but play a defense consisting of mediocre oldies who play inconsistent hockey at best. This mix sucks!

No he just plain sucks. He's been horrible for two months and he wasn't on the first pairing during that time. He is only good at blocking shots because he's huge, he is literally useless at everything else, which is a problem when we need everything he is terrible at.

for the billionth time they are not showcasing Meszaros. Everyone knows what he is. there is nothing to showcase.
i feel like I am banging my ******* head against a wall saying Gus needs to play. The whole defensive unit got abused against SJ and who pays the price? Gus.
color me ****ing shocked.
Berubes personel decisions continue to be questionable at best.
