Rightly or wrongly there have been many questions raised about Philadelphia's two big off-season signings, that of forward Dale Weise and defenseman Radko Gudas.

On Thursday the Flyers poured some gasoline onto that fire and gave their critics new ammunition when the decision was made to make Radko Gudas a healthy scratch for their upcoming match up against the Vancouver Canucks.

That match up is schedule for Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, and the decision has reportedly come from head coach Dave Hakstol who believes that Gudas has shown a lack of consistency as of late.
