  1. Greetings: I just read my profile and noticed its been 10 years since joining the board. I am not sure if it was Radoran or FC who led me over, but I recall a group who defected at about the same time. We have a good gig--civil and intelligent, with some humor and street wisdom. Thanks to our leaders, HF, pilldoc, and Tropical, and all the Supporting Members. Let's hope for another decade in good health...maybe one with a Stanley Cup along the way. Peace, Howie

  3. ha, i dunno, man, coming back here and seeing LITERALLY the same exact post topics and conversations, just with all new names in the organization, PTSD is a real thing. and don't mention giroux as the common thread, because he was a faint source of hope many years into the "we have our awesome moments, but really, don't take us seriously, they are just moments" era of the flyers. don't want to be a stranger, but touching the hot stove that hasn't been turned off for like 20 years.... that said, it's pretty awesome to see so many of you still around. you are dedicated

  4. And thanks to all those who sacrifice all and keep us safe so we can enjoy what so many don't get to enjoy. Even as insignificant as hockey may seem in all this mad world we all can come here to escape sometime and share one common bond. Happy holidays And the loved ones we miss during these times that made it so special.

  6. Neither did Laviolette's - who has only won a Cup and subsequently taken another team to the Final. Nor did Berube's - who has subsequently won a Cup with another franchise And now AV's doesn't work, either - a coach who has been to two Cup finals with two other franchises Now, stay with me here, I'm speculating that it just maybe, perhaps, might not be "the coach".

  7. Well the Flyers are 8-8. Perfectly mediocre...the farm is the AHLs worst...Fletch's work is done. It took awhile, but they've finally got Couturier and Farabee to play terrible hockey. If Hart isn't stealing games this popgun offence isn't going to beat any decent team. 2 goals or less in 10 games. Scored more than 3 once since the first 3 games. And of the oldest 13 players on the team, ol' Fletch brought in 10 of them in his short tenure. So at least the future is bright. Gostisbehere leads his team in points. Fletcher traded assets just to get rid of

  8. When you read and hear about the poison of so many web-based outlets, this exception is very special. It is worth celebrating. I've said it before and say it again, this is an extended family. I really hope we stay happy, healthy, and engaged for years to come.

  9. The last two years of this deal will be ... I just can't do this. Excellent signing.

  10. I didn't see this all put together in one spot and I needed to see it broken out so....this is what happened in the past week or so. Going into the 2021-2022 season the Flyers top priorities were: Top-pair defensemen for Provorov to play with (and mentor the kids). Ellis A shoot-first top 6 winger. Atkinson (I think we need another but not sure it can/will happen) To get tougher to play against. Ristolainen (and Atkinson & maybe a little of Ellis honestly) A backup goalie capable of playing 20-30 games. Of the 4 trades, the

  11. Missed the presser and didn't read much of the thread, but am I correct in assuming that the parade is cancelled?

  14. Teams have a habit of making their best player Captain. Lindros and G were never Captain material. Just because someone is your best player it does not mean he is a leader. All it does is place extra pressure on a guy who is already in the spotlight and expected to do great things. It's a bad move.

  15. See. I called this last week. Hope everyone is happy now. Problem solved. I feel so much better. Everything is going to be ok.

  16. No, it doesn't. It needs an actual rebuild and a change in fundamental hockey phillyosophy. One would think a decade of the worst on ice results in franchise history would get that message across.

  17. If Fletcher trades Giroux he may as well hand in his resignation. He's gone all in with his idiotic long term signing of Hayes, trading of picks/players for soon to be signed too long Ristolainen, more picks/players for signed for too long Ellis. He brought in old man Yandle (he of ZERO points in his last 17 games) to replace the guy he gave away along with draft picks Shayne Gostisbehere (who LEADS his team in scoring). He brought in old man Brassard. And old man Braun. And old man Atkinson. And older man Thompson. Who all looked like great pickups...for 5 games. Sadly the season is 82 games

  18. He has a pedigree, so there's hope. It's entirely mental at this point. That game was huge for his confidence. But it can be shattered in an instance so his next start is crucial. Hopefully Ellis gets back soon, because we are spending too much time in our end, which is unsustainable.

  19. Ah...It's all coming back to me now! Now I remember what it feels like to watch a hockey game and be entertained and pleased with the effort and outcome!! Been a while... 1) I LOVE watching Giroux shoot the puck this much.....(Vora-who?) 2) Martin Jones CAN play the position. Can he do it consistently? And can our D start making life a bit easier on him/Hart. Hart WILL have a bounce back year. Maybe not a Vezna year but he'll give us what we need in the pipes (god i hope) 3) We are winning these games DESPITE missing Ellis, Hayes, etc. 4) Brassar

  20. They got him to forego free agency and take lower than he probably is worth on the open market (again). That costs something, and that something in this case is term. If he has radically declined at 37/38, the buyout option doesn't look terribly onerous, either.
