    Shutdown Seanie!!!!

    It's AMAZING how much better he looks playing the position he is suited for.

    The dude is a plus 3 on the season. A pretty amazing stat considering this team's record at ES this year.

    And was happy to see Schenn score the game winner.

    Those two along with Konecny were the last three forwards to go off the ice at practice yesterday morning.
    Coincidence?

    He played great...used his size and strength to setup the provorov and Schenn goals.

    Couturier now has more even strength points than Giroux in 16 fewer games.

    Had to double check. But yeah. Giroux has a lot more points this year than couturier's career high of 39.

    All this proves to me is that Couturier was fucking gliding for the last few years and was too comfortable. For the first time in his career; he was called out for not producing instead of getting praised for being a pseudo-shutdown forward. The Filpulla trade not only has him getting better matchups but woke him up and told him that .389 PPG is unacceptable. Now lets hope that this run doesn't make Hextall believe that he is a #2 center again and that Couturier doesn't get complacent anymore. BTW- all those excuses about bad wingers & defensive starts proved to be fucking bullshit. Amazing how a little competition makes someone play harder. He still cant finish so if someone says he is a top 6 forward on this board. I am going reach through the computer and choke you out.

    I don't think it's competition or anything like that. When you're playing as a 2nd line center you're generally playing against other 2nd lines and 3/4 dmen... playing on the 3rd line you play against worse players and 5/6 dmen thus you tend to fare better. Playing better and contributing begets confidence.

    It's all about putting him in the spot that he's better suited for. Take filpula out of the lineup and move him to 2nd line center and magically you'll see the old Sean.

    He is going to the net and is now keeping his feet moving. His effort is different. I agree that having him slotted him right is a part of it and posted that his #'s will increase when Filpulla was added. But his effort has changed; he was demoted and he responded. Its that simple. Hextall basically told the world that #14 was not producing. If he did not take that personally then he doesn't have balls. The kid responded.... that's a good thing for the Flyers.

    Brayden Schenn is tied with Simmonds in points even though he has played 3 less games. I guess he's a better player. TILTP logic
