It looks like the Flyers will lose again tonight, and things aren't looking promising for them the playoffs. Of all the Eastern teams, I still think the Flyers would be the Pens toughest opponent come playoff time, and assuming they don't make the playoffs, I like the Pens chances much more of making it through the East. Boston would be very tough, but with a healthy Sid and Geno, I think the Chara factor is neutralized. Of course, both teams will probably look different after the trade deadline, and I'm hoping Shero is able to land a tough d-man, and possibly a Kulemin-type winger for the second line. Bennett has exceeded expectations, but having a rookie in a top-six role on a team with legitimate Stanley Cup aspirations is dicey. I think that line could benefit from a grinding, defensive presence, and Kulemin would fit the bill.
