A Study In Mediocrity.

This is a typical Flyers' move, similar to Fletcher, smells of Holmgren and Clarke going with the familiar.

This is a guy who works with veterans, not a guy who develops kids. Does this foretell an offseason strategy of becoming more of a veteran team to compete right away?

Very seriously happy to be wrong about AV.

I think a very underrated aspect to AV's hiring was the staff he was given with so much experience.

Not only has AV and his staff done his usual with veterans but he's also shown he's been able solve one of his shortcomings by really bringing along the kids. Konecny, Laughton, Farabee, Provorov, Sanheim, Myers, Hägg including Lindblom before he got sick have all been crucial to this turnaround.

I'm duly impressed with the discipline and poise they play with.
