Hi from Philly I wonder the same thing! The kid pissed me off almost every game last year! Every time he stepped on the ice I knew he would make mistakes. But the Flyers now have D depth. I noticed that he is now allowed to go deeper into the offencive zone this year. Maybe that wasn't the game plan last year. I like his long strides and the way he carries the puck. But I am not sold on him yet as a Flyers fan.
