Please excuse me for the lack of structure but i had a few thoughts tonight and i want to see what other fellow flyers fans thought.
First, I love Couturier as it seems everyone else does too. Last year it seemed that the flyers were torn between keeping him in the show or moving him down to, i believe, the AHL (age wouldnt allow JRs, correct me if im wrong). as the 8th overall selection he obviously did a wonderful job in the NHL playing his role perfectly. From what i read leading up to the draft he was very talented offensively as well. Would it make sense to move him to the AHL for awhile to develop his skills offensively because we seem to be pretty set down the middle (Briere, G, Schenn, Talbot)? I bring this up because i read an article that Luke Schenn was brought to the NHL too early and was the epitome of how not to raise a prospect.
Also wanted to hear overall feelings on Jagr. I loved him throughout the season working with G and how it was nearly impossible to move him off the puck. he looked slow vs NJ so do people think he could last another season and is there a way so "save" him for the playoffs if he re-signs.
