    Something I think we can all agree on here, is that the development of Couturier is one of the most if not the most important factor for the Flyers this season.

    And development is a two way...

    I am guessing they havent figured out that there really isnt anyone better to play over Couts on the 2nd PP either.

    We will have to just agree to disagree until one of us is proven right.

    So basically, you shouldnt promote someone who is great at their job, because, well, he is really good at his job.

    Yeah, sure, that makes sense :sigh:

    For crying out loud.

    You're not taking him out of his "area", you're widening his area instead of pigeon-holing a TWENTY ONE YEAR OLD KID.

    How do you not see the lunacy in that? He's 21 years...

    There's no way the Flyers can justify not having Couturier on the 2nd PP unit full time (don't start, Cubs lol).

    Couturier needs to play on the 2nd PP unit next year. He has to. And the same goes...

    Hextall is trying to do what you should do, which is build your team on skill, speed, and possession.

    The scheme has nothing to do with the geographical location of the team, that all depends on the coach.

    Good point.

    Almost feel like there should be a group between 2 and 3. Thats where I would put Bernier, Mason, Bishop, Schneider. Guys that need another year to prove which group they belong in.

    Schneider, Bishop, and Bernier should be in Tier 2; Crawford and Hiller should be in Tier 3. Just my opinion.

    Schneider had a 1.97 GAA and .921 SV% last year, so I'm sure that had a good amount to...
