Thread: Best defenseman on the Flyers

  1. #1

    Best defenseman on the Flyers

    Wears number 53.

    Best passer, skater, power play. Has dramatically improved his defense, and his hitting. Shows passion and desire to win.

    Poor Ivan. Another poor game.

    Now that Ghost plays next to him it obvious who is the better defenseman.

    Hard to compare since they are quite different. But I agree that Ghost has earned more trust when protecting a lead late and that Provorov is probably a little overrated by the fanbase. Still like him a lot, though; they ask a lot of him for a very young defenseman and he should keep improving.

    A little overrated by the fanbase is an understatement. Reading this board you would think that Provorov will win the Norris trophy this year. He can do no wrong. No mistakes or giveaways are ever discussed.

    He is an average defenseman on a team with very little defensive talent. Just because he was picked in the first round does mean that he is future superstar.

    I think he's a good 21-year-old defenseman in his second season who the team asks too much of. He'd probably be best off as a #2 right now, and he's nowhere near Norris caliber. But they don't have many options, and he's going to have his ups and downs, especially as much as he's on the ice (and against top competition). I still like him a lot.

    This is the kind of thing that will never ever let anyone take you seriously.
