  1. Past hour
  2. @Samifan Glad to see you back and hope that things continue to improve for you! Was wondering what happened to you. Of course watching these Flyers can't be helpful in making you feel better. and yes, I too, still hate Jake! Take care and I'll keep you in my prayers!
  3. Thanks! Battle health issues definitely puts things in perspective. I turned last night off after they went down 3-1. Trying to no longer “sweat the small stuff” lol hope they will right the ship but not confident it will happen. I just don’t want them ruining Hart or running Provorov into the ground playing him 30 minute a night
  4. why am I both proud, and offended? well, I would be offended if I had any feelings
  5. Both ...you need a Xanax to watch the Flyers because of the acute anxiety they will give you and your basic assessment is pretty much on point. Problem is, and this too has been beaten to death like a dead horse, that this team never went into a true rebuild. Hexy tried to stay competitive and still do a rebuild. However with hind sight pretty much being 20/20, this plan is not coming to fruition. In the end they should have just let some of these higher priced veterans go. I could be wrong, but its the way I currently see ......
  6. Sorry to hear about your health issues I hope you feel better and get over it. Now to think of it watching these bums might not be good for your heath/heart find something else to watch like I have when they go south during the game. It is way less stressful hey they can suck but I don't have to watch it. And please for the love of God take care of Hart and Ivan and the kids.
  7. It is what I just typed somewhere around here I can't remember which thread it was. But the jest of the post was yes please fix the team before the fans blame everything on Hart like Wentz and want him traded too. Surround him with bums and expect him to carry them to the Championship. Philly fans are the worse...
  8. Today
  9. Wait ...not wrong about the Flyers, or needing the Xanax?
  10. why do I feel like this is Carson Wentz part deaux? Is it a Philly thing?
  11. You are not wrong......this has been the MO of the Flyers for years and has been beaten to death.
  12. Agreed. I really don't like how we incubate some players too long (Kahk), while others languish in the minors (Menell), or get pigeon-hole'd on lower lines (EEK), while the old pre-retirees get all the minutes and opportunities (Bonino, other Centers, previously Klyde). I would just like to see some ingenuity in terms of our player management. We just seem to wait forever to made a bold decision. At least they have not left Kaprisov to marinate on lower lines than he belongs. I want Rossi up as soon as he is healthy too - no time like the present.
  13. I knew it was coming it is why I canceled my subscription to NHLtv and saved the $90. Now I have still watched the game from the free game links I have found and posted here but now I don't feel so guilty like last night turning it off after it was 4-1. And until the organization is hit in the wallet they will continue to roll out this garbage team. I knew that what we saw this past playoff run was really what this was and not the hot run they had at the end of the season. Now they have a crap team they have to figure out. They have g
  14. I'm expecting Fiala to have a great game today. Would it not be fine to have the both of them, Kaprizov and Fiala to bring their best sides to the same game? Now that would be entertainment!
  15. I'm not so sure. The first thing I am concerned with is damaging Hart they have to figure something out first before I want to put him back in. Not worried about Elliott he is a 34 year old vet he can handle it. Hart is too important at a young 22 years old get the team playing better first priority. Then you can go back to Hart. No sense putting all the pressure that comes with the position which is the most outside of playing QB in the NFL. Take care of your future. Fix the the flawed team.
  16. the X factor in al this is coaching. AV is good at what he does. He might be able to make adjustments to get the most out of the club
  17. It starts with finding a taker for JVR or Jake. It almost has to, even at that salary.
  18. The problem is you can only play Elliott a few games in a row. He isn't a starter, and at 35, I am afraid of overextending him . I mean...can he play four out of the next five games as the starter? Hart HAS to be the guy. Personally, I would have signed a younger backup, even though Elliott has been good when called upon.
  19. It's so bad the only way out right now I fear is ride it out till the end of the season and go from there. I mean honestly I don't know how they are going to fix this. They have some good pieces. Then will have to go through a rough retool year next year I think they will have to go cheap in the bottom 6 with some kids to be able to start fixing it. The blue line you have a decent 4 maybe to build around with Ivan, Myers, Sanheim and maybe I still can't tell yet with Friedman. But Gus, Hagg and Braun have to go they are just terrible
  20. We have a goalie in Hart. We have young players like Provorov, Konecny, Lindblom, Laughton, Hagg and Sanheim. We have a bunch of veterans, Giroux, Voracejk and Van Reimsdyk, who are overpaid, and weighing down the team, quite honestly. Our veterans are being given a leadership role that they are not embracing. Management seems to be in a holding pattern, probably aided by the fact that there are no fans in the stands. I'm not sure that they know what to do, but this current roster cannot and WILL not cut it. They s*rewed themselves with handing out ridiculous NMCs to players like Giroux and Vo
  21. I hope we are all over reacting, but it seems like they over estimated this team. I get the injury problems are a factor, but a team with depth can overcome that I think OR is right, Fletch is not in jeopardy of losing his job. He will be forced to face the reality that the team isnt good enough. Best of luck to him trying to dig out of this dumpster
  22. They had a great goalie like we do, that the organization is allowing to get killed. The Kings didn't do that to Quick.
  23. https://thesportsdaily.com/?p=1180550 Minnesota Wild (4-1-0) 8pts 2nd in Honda West 3.00 Goals For Per Game (15th in the NHL) 2.00 Goals Against Per Game (3rd in the NHL) 4.4% Power Play (30th in the NHL) 93.8% Penalty Kill (2nd in the NHL) Top 5 Scorers: 1. #14 Joel Eriksson Ek ~ 3G 2A = 5pts 2. #97 Kirill Kaprizov ~ 1G 4A = 5pts 3. #18 Jordan Greenway ~ 1G 4A = 5pts 4. #24 Matt Dumba ~ 2G 1A = 3pts 5. #20 Ryan Suter ~ 0G 3A = 3pts Top 3 PIM's: 1. #18 Jordan Greenway ~ 8 PIM's 2. #22 Kevin Fiala ~ 6 P
  24. Yes they did. Let's not do the same. I would have pick up some salary on the table even. It is time to break up the band. If not now then when? And what else does it take I mean do they have to just actually hit rock bottom before they will? If so it may never happen they can still barely get by with some wins here and there but they have to want more than barely getting by. Not sure they want more. Status quo.
  25. Their top 4 was TREMENDOUS. Doughty, Martinez, Muzzin and Voynov. We don't have that. They also had guys like Kopitar, Brown, Toffoli, Stoll, Richards, Nolan and King that were never afraid to throw a hard check..on offense. They played a hard, heavy game. We don't have that, either.
  26. Giroux (the current holder of most overpaid player in the NHL) will be the most games played as captain in Flyer history. If team history stays consistent he will be bought out today. Kind of explains the past decade in Flyerland. The kings of mediocre. The GMs, the players, the scouts, the coaches, all complicit. If they want to piss away millions of dollars I would be happy to accept a buck or two.
