Flyers are an offensive team that likes to spring transition attacks, use defensemen to help establish the attack. Holmgren's moves? Loses Carle, adds Schenn and Grossmann, two players that are poor in transition, not very mobile in terms of north-south game.
Compare: Penguins direction is known from the top on down. There are weaknesses in our organization, but everyone is largely on the same page. Look at outside the box additions: undrafted free agents are muckers: Sill, Payerl. Acquisitions are cycle capable: Tangradi, Glass, Adams, etc. Mistakes are corrected: Michalek AND Martin. In Philadelphia, mistakes are multiplied, then holes are glossed over. Lost Pronger and Carle, added Gervais and Foster, as an example.
