And I thought no response was better than the broken record.

Briere and Giroux down the middle seems to work for the Flyers. There isn't enough talent in the world to fill a team full of 5'10 and unders...but some of them can't be overlooked.

I'm glad our team looks into a mix of both.

Very rough start (booed at home opener along with Kuba) picked it up a lot for a bit but he's been a bit quieter lately, still doing well but in a quiet way since Karlsson's taking the dynamic spotlight.

Before he got hurt was playing at an All-Star level. Slow coming back but still making a lot of good little plays and is more involved in the play. He is playing like the guy I saw in Pittsburgh, warts and all. He ain't perfect, but he is playing like Sergei Gonchar from Pittsburgh, except would like him to put a few of those shots in the net.

Brennan is already on Gonchar because he hasn't scored in awhile.

He really does hate Russians.

Gonchar settles Cowen down. Probably our most consistent defencemen defensively, and isn't that a weird thing to say. Kuba is up there too, obviously.

I guess it's fair to say that if Gonchar and Kuba weren't doing their thang, then Karlsson wouldn't have been Karlsson like. The two veterans allow for Karlsson to unleash the beast on a nightly basis.

Gonchar has been alright in a quiet fashion, as he is top-5 in defencemen scoring despite missing a chunk of games.

So much of our offense, particularly the 3rd line, relies on punching the puck out to the points for shots from the blueline.

Kuba, Karlsson, Cowen and Gonchar make that possible.

You saw how easily Philly manhandled our PP in the last game because we didn't adapt and try to run the PP from the sideboards or in the corner. They just kept 3 guys high the whole time.

That's a really good point, and when you don't adjust you're setting yourself up for lots of potential turnovers and short handed chances, which is exactly what happened. Thankfully Kuba and Andy in particular, made some excellent plays to avoid a dreaded shorty
