  1. I really don't see the need to "get rid of" Nolan Patrick. He makes under a million a year. I'm not sure what his value is on the trade market but it can't be high. And for whatever pick/prospect you're going to get for him, I highly doubt they will have the upside that he holds. Health is clearly his issue. Yes he played very apprehensive, and I know all the guys wanting to run him out of town would be going balls to the wall if they were recovering from the conditions he is and playing pro hockey . Meanwhile you've got guys making almost 10X what he is, signed for way longer, h

  2. Dear all, As part of my season ticket holder benefits the Flyers invited me to a 10 year reunion of a handful of the 2010 players on a Zoom type system where we could see and hear all the players but they could not hear or see us (see screenshot at end of recap). It was hosted by Steve Coates and radio announcer Tim Saunders. In attendance were JVR, Scott Hartnell, Claude Giroux, Simon Gagne, Danny Briere, Ian laperriere, Kimmo Timonen, and Brian Boucher. The event lasted an hour and they discussed some of the behind the scenes stuff from the 2010 playoff run. Firstl

  3. End the embarrassment. $5.6M hit next season. $1.33M the year after that. Give the Kraken a 2nd to take Voracek. Retain salary. Do some ****ing thing. End this era of medocrity, failure, and embarrassment. And fire Holmgren. I don't want to see him in the background of a highlight video. Give Bob Clarke a gold watch and a retirement home in Flin Flon. End it. Now.

  4. I'm not a fan of AV but this season is not on him. This was a team that quit. The leaders should be ashamed of themselves.

  5. This is honestly what has enraged me and pushed me off the deep end. Only thing that reminds me of it is when the team quit on Barber against Ottawa back in 2002. This season has just been so disappointing and disheartening.

  6. Been away. Should be posting again on a more or less regular basis again. Look, I am not here to rip on the Leafs or to pile on, there has been enough of that going on, no laugh track with this, my intent is to take a clinical look at the Leafs moves for the 2021 season and how they didnt work out. The Covid shortened season saw the Leafs knocked out in the play in round by the CBJ in a stunner, Dubas retained the core and made a ton of tweaks SUBTRACTIONS Barrie went to the Oilers where he was used properly and found his game and was dynamic.

  7. Yes, actually, they can. Look, I'm not on the "he'll some day be JVR" wagon but I also don't think that one season of -30 coming off serious injury and playing on a team that had the motivation level of a tranquilized sloth is necessarily demonstrative of his total game. It's low risk more than anything. Who's he "blocking"? Give me a viable alternative - something beyond a noun a verb and "-30" - and I'm willing to listen.

  8. this is where I am. To me it makes little sense to trade the guy now when he's worthless, it doesn't help the team, & represents a huge asset lost. The #2 overall pick should yield something in return. Right now what would a fair return be? Nothing, and that's being charitable. So offer a little more $ "we have faith in you" and see what a regular-ish offseason and camp and season do for his game. Try not to create a situation where the kid is resentful toward the team. His salary isn't/won't be an issue when it comes to actually improving the team. The le

  11. I’d agree with the 2 games if Friedman went straight into the boards. But he didn’t. He went in at about a 45 degree angle. It wasn’t head first and no injury. IMHO, it was worth a fine but no way in hell is that a 2 game suspension worthy hit.

  14. Just a fantastic hockey series to watch. Either one of these teams could compete for a championship, too bad they met in the quarterfinals. I don't know if I can say these moves or this or that player "lost" the series. The games I watched were won, not frittered or choked away. There is a great core in Colorado, that if can be kept together could be a Blackhawks/Pens/Bruins/Kings type cap era dynasty. To think everyone was thinking sweep after the Avs blew the Knights out of the rink in game 1 and then took that counter punch in game two. Just wow.

  15. I just wonder what the "right price" would be in this situation. What do you get for a "disappointing" overall #2 pick? Flyers gave up Prospal, Fat Balloon, and a 2 to get 68 games, 12 goals, and 19 assists of Alexander Daigle and then flipped him for 13 games and an assist from Andrei Kovalenko on the way to completing the process of turning Prospal and the pick that became Briere into Adam Burt. Is there a GM out there that's going to give a mid-six roster forward and a 2nd for him? Is that enough? In the end, the Flyers have all the cards. If he doesn't

  16. My first reaction also was: good hit. But it's no longer the case. That ship has sailed. It's almost certainly charging. And if it is charging, it's a penalty, which means it is an infraction that resulted in an injury. That's always been an issue in hockey. But more importantly, the charging is irrelevant. Because at some point in his path, even near the end of his path (which, let's be honest was probably 100 feet or more) Sheifele has occasion to see his target. And he's certainly not looking at the puck as he makes no effort whatsoever to get his stick on the puck t

  17. Well I came here to post this good news, but a Flames fan beat me to the punch. Anyway, maybe we should let the Flyers pick first and take the guy they pass on? LOL. The big defenseman was mentioned by one member here as a logical pick. But there is a forward that is supposed to be a good option also. If Risto stays, I take the forward, let the Kracken have the big defenseman. Maybe another Tyler Myers?

  18. Why are you singling me out? I don't dislike him. I just hate his contract. And his lazy ass attitude. And his puck hogging. He has a nice smile though.

  20. No camp, no practice time, and apparently guys who couldn't find any way to get off the couch and onto a rink. In Canada. No, really. I think the first two factors are real. I think the third shows a clear lack of discipline and desire. Other guys got time. Some guy in EDMONTON just put up 100+ points in a little more than half a season. Goalies took it on the chin this year, especially early on. Hart doesn't have the veteran experience of say a Saaros nor the defense of Nashville in front of him. Give him and the d a camp and if he's still in the doldrums T

  21. Alright Pissy McPissypants, I get your point. It's a good one, and I agree in big picture. But give us 10 minutes to be excited about a kid, would'ya? Mine isn't because of the 3 games, though it was brief confirmation of what I saw in WCJ and college. It's because of WCJ & college I know, it's college. It's not the Bumbfk Bears in the WHL or something. But he really stood out in the WCJ tourney. And in Michigan. So give us 10 minutes. On the other hand, I do think what you're saying is valid particularly as it relates to the Provy comparisons. Be

  22. Al Hill scored 2 goals and 3 assists in his first ever NHL game for the Flyers. Ghost looked like he was going to be one of the games top offensive dmen. The first guy is who? and the second guy might be gone. Provorov, along with every other player not named Farabee had the season from hell this year. York has talent, no doubt. But lets let the guy play some games.

  23. https://www.inquirer.com/flyers/flyers-dave-scott-snider-changes-fletcher-20210503.html “I feel for our fans. I mean, it’s a sad situation,” he said in an interview Monday. “I’m angry. I’m frustrated. Everyone keeps saying they’re disappointed, and it’s beyond disappointment where we’re sitting today.” “But I’m not discouraged, and I’m determined,” he added. Sounds to me like one more, corporate...end of season, and off-season, cop-out. He talks about their closer than their record shows. Closer to what, Dave? Mediocrity?

  26. I'll never not enjoy a win against the Pens. So folks can wet blanket that result all they want it will not effect my ability to tell the rando Pens fan at the Sheetz they can **** right off all the way to the goddamned sun and die. The Pens clearly didn't have "it" tonight, and for that I say good. Will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow night. The team looked loose and looked to be having fun playing hockey. Plays like the Farabee move to the goal and finding the shooter in space have been missing since the COVID break. It was as if the

  27. I respectfully disagree. If charging is call (and it was), how can future players in a puck race defend against a player trying to score on a wraparound? Watch it in real speed and throw out the freeze frames and slo-mo's. If Scheifele is there 3/10's of a second earlier, he prevents the goal. He's travelling at about 30 km/hr in a straight line to stop the goal (either by playing the body or the puck) and realizes with less than half a second before impact that he's too late. The only thing he can do at this point is brace for impact. I don't blame Evans for trying

  28. Just curious have you ever had a serious injury? What about a condition that when you go to bed on Wednesday feeling fine and wake up on Thursday with a splitting headache made worse by the sight daylight; Then never really know when it will happen again or what really causes it ? Just a smidgen of empathy would not kill anyone. This statement is not directed solely at you. This isn't about coddling an entitled brat, it's about letting a person try to rebound from a serious medical condition, they did a solid with Morin, what's the harm in doing a solid to the #2 overal

  29. I think there are several Flyers that looked great, then average who will rebound once the trash is taken out. Provorov and Konecny I'm pretty confident. Myers/Sanheim/Lindblom/Patrick/ may not become great but are better than they've shown this year.
