Pronger - Meszaros pairing needs to happen

Not that Carle has been bad or anything but Meszaros has clearly been better. Hasn't his play at least earned him some more ice time? It's not like too many minutes is going to expose him - he has played a lot in the past in Ottawa and Tampa.

Also - why not give him some PP time? I hear he has a big shot but we don't see it. Seriously though - what 4 defensemen are more skilled? Pronger, Timonen, Carle (maybe), Coburn? I don't think so.

I wonder how many games it will take the coaches to see this - 20??

with the way Lavi has been line juggling it could happen.

he seems to be trying out every possible config to see what works or happens..

He has been on the pp. He plays second unit.

Timonen-Pronger
Carle-Meszaros

are the units.

I don't think they would do well together.

Not enough speed on that unit.

You'd have to go Timonen-Meszaros and Pronger-Coburn.

Carle is slow and he and Pronger do fine.

Carle-O'Donnel would be a bigger problem

Though I have always wanted to see Coburn and Pronger together

i'd like to give coburn-carle another try. they have both developed a lot since they were last together. the other units could be pronger-meszaros and timonen-o'donnel

I think it makes a lot of sense. I am waiting for it to happen.

I also think this is Carle's last season with the Flyers. He will be traded.

I said this from the day they acquired him. I think they'd be able to be a good shut down pair and put some points up too.

true, but it's fun to speculate and brain storm.

****, let's try carter at D. he's big, fast, and has a great shot. ( on the suggestion, not his skill set)

I think Pronger needs to get healthy before we make any changes here.

Only in Philadelphia can we come off the best game of the current season and IMMEDIATELY ask to switch up lines

The irony.

No thanks, Carle is fine with Pronger and Meszaros has done nothing special to make anyone believe he can play the role Carle does with those minutes.

I thought Meszaros was faster, but that's what will keep Carle on that pairing.


Plus Carle needs the help, Meszaros really doesn't. However, if that wasn't an issue, I think it would be a good pair.
