Here's your uncomfortable hockey reminder of the week: When the NHL returns and the Philadelphia Flyers take the ice, they're going to have a pretty weak defense.

With Matt Carle gone, the Flyers are going to lean on guys like Braydon Coburn, Nicklas Grossmann and Kimmo Timonen to play even more minutes than they have in the past. They have to fill the hole left by Carle, their ice-time leader amongst defensemen a year ago, and unless Luke Schenn suddenly turns into a legitimate top-four defensemen, filling those minutes will come by committee.

Even at age 37, Kimmo Timonen is the Flyers best defenseman and he'll certainly big a huge part of filling the hole left by Carle. But it's no shock that he's injury-riddled at this stage of his career, and his time on ice has steadily declined over the last several years. Will he be up to the task?


All the rest is right here
