Mike Knuble. I think the jury’s still out. He’s old – 37. But he stands in front of the net – and that’s something lacking on this stellarly talented team.
He’s going to play on the top line? Sorry, but Flyer’s top line is – er – not the same as playing with Ovie and Nicky. Then again, maybe that toughness is what we need — it’s *definitely* what we need.
Can he hold up? 37 is ancient in the NHL.
Of course, I was (and am) sad to see Sergei go. Federov, though was 39 going on Hall of Fame-still has those flashes of brilliance when you need them (remember game 7 against the Rangers in the first round of the playoffs?).
What I know? Brooks Laich is ready to center the second line.
