    Ok RJ, you've gone too far. I can look the other way when you're swooning over wackjob Rudy Guiliani. I'll ignore that you can't see THE LEADER of your country tearing it in half. But when you start accusing fine board members of listening to Bieber, I gotta put my foot down. Consider this a time out.

    It does look rather controlled and with a purpose. The other thing I would say is that every one of the Flyer picks, as far as I can tell, are character guys. Every one of them. Character guys who have put the work in and are rewarded with contracts is about as good a way forward as I can imagine.

    Listened to the interview Jason Myrtetus did with him on Flyers Daily. The kid sounds like a quality young man. Knew he had a place to improve and worked on it over the COVID summer to get better. At one point he was saying he can't wait to show everyone how much his skating has improved. Pretty funny that he's a big Ovechkin fan and "doesn't know much about Philadelphia, honestly"... I think with a 23rd pick and a system full of playmakers he was a decent selection. His character in just 10 minutes of listening to him comes through, he wants to be great, and knows if he works he can be. I think this might wind up being a great pick.

    The NHL Postpones the 2021 NHL Winter Classic and why it may not be such a bad deal for Wild Fans With how messed up 2020 has been this was no real surprise of an announcement by the league, but when you think about it more it might not be so bad at all for the Minnesota Wild and any fan that is planning on forking over the $$$ to attend. Check it out!

    I say keep Gostisbehere. That surgery he had on his hip takes about a year to get back to normal and then Yeo completely mishandled him. Don't forget he also required another knee surgery (way to go Flyers medical staff!!!!). Pair up Gostisbehere and Provorov again and let them run roughshod over everyone. I'm sure though we'll hear "ARGH SIIIIIIIIZE!!!!!!" is needed on the first pair........

    Absolutely. E.g., Myers - undrafted. I said this in another thread, or maybe here I dunno, but I like that the Flyers drafted character guys. If the draft is a crapshoot, why not take guys with work ethic and character, it improves the odds that they become pros doesn't it?

    yesterday, some practical joker in one of those box trucks with the full-size video panels on the sides thought it would be funny to park right in front of my window and play a commercial for that stuff on a loop for several hours. was it you?

    The back-to-back signings of Wisdom and Foerster to ELCs is telling us a lot. Fletcher really is serious about building from within. I am glad he is staying away from Silly Season. Gus Bus is reasonable and short-term. Building for the long-term counts and we don't need any more JVR-style contracts.

    Are you saying Santa forgets? Santa never forgets. He may forgive, but he never forgets.

    Meh. I don't mind Fletch bargain hunting for good value propositions. He's made two errors so far: re-signing Braun and letting Pitlick go. And both of those I can live with given rationale at play. Disagree? Fight me!

    I think that there is a TON of truth to this point. Anyone that is not looking ahead to the expansion draft, will get burned (kind of like the Wild did with Tuch). It is better to have untouchable new draftees that aren't eligible, than a player like Kunin (whom likely would be, and then lost). Had we not had so many NMCs tied to old dead wood, we might have been able to take a different track. But, as it is - there was no choice. I would still like to see those holding the NMCs and providing little near/long term value moved. Looking right at you Parise, Suter, Zucc.

    One other aspect that someone at the Athletic comment section brought up: Guerin could've just acquired Bonino, Johansson and Bjugstad so he could flip them for assets the next deadline. It's an interesting thought for sure.

    also probably thought Kunin would be picked by Seattle in the ED so why not trade him now and get something for him and not get backed into a corner like we did with Vegas.

    Feels good to have a hometown champion once again..... Not since 2002 Bucs in the NFL and 2004 Lightning have I been able to say that MY team was the absolute best in its sport. This whole Covid stop and re-start DID put a damper on the whole excitement level, I will say. And I even went on to say that no matter WHO wins (Bolts included), that winner should have an asterisk next to their name. Do I still feel that way? To a degree.... but in this case, I will unashamedly let my bias take over and just say that the Lightning were one of the favorites if not THE favorite to win pre-Covid, and well, they just did it. Early on in the start of the playoffs, once I got over myself and just enjoyed the hockey for what it was, the whole stop and restart thing just sorta melted into the background and I let the action on the ice, no matter what team it was, take center stage. Glad I did that. Hockey, to me, is STILL one of the most entertaining spectator team sports out there and I can say my Tampa Bay Lightning are the very best at that sport I love to watch so much! Stamkos and Hedman...man, what a journey together. They were the start of this new core we have now....back when the Bolts were still picking up the pieces from the previous Cup winner that had turned into a collection of players that just were hoping to be NHL viable. Stamkos came in with high expectations, but he had guys like LeCavalier and Marty St. Louis to help mentor him. Hedman came in, barely able to shave, certainly not old enough to drink, as a second overall pick, started a bit slowly (at one point, some people even labeled him a bust!), but he persevered, worked on his craft and became the Norris winning, Conn Smythe winning, Stanley Cup champ he is today. And those two guys are still "young veterans"....a chance to do this very thing once or twice more perhaps, because the other players on the team are so good and the ownership and management (and previous management, ode to Stevie Y) did and does such a good job in continuing to find and develop players for the big club. I like the feel of the Bolts being champs.... but, I will admit, I still have this nagging thing about the whole Covid restart....and would like the Lighting to pull a Chicago, Detroit, or Pittsburgh, and get a couple more Cups with this core to put ANY and all doubts to rest. But for now, the Lightning are the best in the league. Hopefully, soon, they will get a chance to defend that Cup against hungry competitors.

    I don't know how this list can't include Nail Yakupov, who is not only one of the biggest busts of the last 10 years, but of all-time. He's a talented player who is obstinate and steadfastly refuses to change his game for anybody. Jesus himself could put a whistle in his mouth and tell Yakupov what to do, and his response would be "Meh".

    Wild Sign Defenseman Ian McCoshen and other Wild news, Emrick and Hartman tributes too The Iowa Wild roster is pretty much set now minus one more signing. McCoshen probably won't provide a lot of offense but they probably don't care either. Enjoy and discuss.

    As I said, I'm sure you will all jump in on the exceptions. Since 2000, approx 4500 players have been drafted. The number of impact players chosen outside the top 10 is less than 3 percent. All I'm saying is the odds are stacked against winning a cup by drafting 15th or higher. Nobody wants this any more than I do. I'm 60 yrs young, was playing competitive hockey when they won back to back. IMHO, this approach will make for a competitive regular season team, not so much come playoff time, just like what we just saw.

    I know, right? No skill there. None whatsoever. Can't skate, or pass or shoot or take pucks off his skate onto his stick to score, or see the ice and go to open areas for scoring chances. Certainly nothing like that. Might as well have 68 year old Brad Marsh out there playing D with a scotch in one hand and his dick in the other.

    I actually think he's trying to keep the pay roll low so he can resign some guys identified to be core players. Couturier, Sanhiem, Patrick, Myers at least will be needing new deals. I don't think they're going to be cheap. So not blowing 6aav on Shattenkirk or some **** is wise imo. There are a lot of young guys who are cheap pushing for these bottom 6 roles. I think the big need would be to fill the Niskanen void, that's going to be difficult, but I think if we see anything it will be for a top 4 rhd. Even though Shatty fills that role. I don't like him, so whatever the deal would be I would not be "oh yay" over. I don't mind that the Flyers aren't all drunk sailor in Bangkok right now.

    [Hidden Content] Well it was SIXTEEN #%@&ing years and about 1,000 NHL games ago that the Flyers traded Justin Williams to the Canes for 34 games of Danny Markov. Good times. Now one of the clutchest and classiest players to ever lace them up is packing it in. Enjoy your retirement sir. Well Done!

    I liked Kunin, but the two second round picks sound pretty nice. We're getting faster in a couple of years if the picks work as intended.

    Well if Niskanen was going to show up this season and play like he did in the playoffs....good riddance. Of course we could say that about a lot of players. As for "Johnny Hockey" (what a dumb nickname for)...the 58th leading scorer last season can bring his whopping THREE playoff points in the last 5 seasons and fit right in with most of this crew. I'm all for getting out of one or two of JVR and Voraceks contracts. But Gaudreau to me just looks like a lateral move. #%&!ing Braun! Whats next...re-up Nate Thompson?
  44. 2 points
    Not a fan of this, too much going to Calgary . Jake and Ghost should be plenty. Maybe an 3rd? but definitely don't think Johnny Hockey is worth 3 players.

    Not sure any player is really the "answer" but Friedman is a very good solid prospect who can get the puck up the ice he was leaned on heavily in the AHL for that. Nothing flashy just smart simple plays with the puck on his stick. And he has a nice fiesty streak in him too with a nice offensive flare too. He will carve out a spot in the lineup next year. In fact I like what he brings to the lineup more than Hagg. I am crossing my fingers that Morin can play well in the AHL enough to maybe get a look next spring if need be.

    Howdy: I have to agree this was the safe move and under budget constraints, may reflect necessity or a desire to spend cap on where the brains trust think it matters. From that vantage, every million saved might mean space for a forward we need to juice up scoring and/or a Braun replacement or RFA gig. The "embedded risk" is injury to either Elliot or Hart. The contract Lyon received (1-year + a $50K pay cut) doesn't inspire confidence in him as a sound #3. But, I can live with this deal. The organization and Hart like the Moose.

    whatever, man. usually I don't feel much of anything, I was happy for Rod Brindamore when he won. But for the most part, I am ambivalent. I hated seeing Justin Williams and Patrick Sharp be very good to great elsewhere. Those guys would have been great to have around. So those two winning cups pissed me off only because, everyone that watched the Flyers knew they would be players yet Hitch stapled their asses to the bench and then they were dealt for nothing and no one. The Schenn's eh, they were serviceable here, Coburn was never the same after his face got broken ...good for them I guess.

    To train live, go and make a trip in Switzerland: he's our head coach in Lausanne now and the season is about to begin. (No need -- yet -- to quarantine when flying there: Canada it still listed as a "safe" country)
