For much of the summer, the sky has almost literally been falling for the Philadelphia Flyers when it comes to their defense.

They’ve lost defensemen to free agency and injury this summer, left with a collection of blue liners that have many fearing for the success of Ilya Bryzgalov and the rest of this team next season.

While the blue line may not be as bad overall as many of us think, it’s certainly not one that is going to allow everyone to rest easy. Still, it’s easy to forget there are still some solid aspects in this group, the most underrated of which is Nicklas Grossmann.
