  1. Danny Briere and Giroux where very good in the 2010 playoffs. Danny B's performance was the best i have ever witnessed in the playoffs for the Flyers.

  2. No. For two reasons the goals Hart let in last game were very hard to stop a few impossible. Two because Elliott is where he needs to be doing what he needs to be doing giving Hart some rest and playing well when he gets the chance and remember we don't want to break him. He's 35 and should be played as such. Hart is the man. Period.

  3. I predict they will take this game. Its part of the cycle. Just at the point where we all see the stake hovering over their heart, they pull a rabbitt out of their ass and give us all false hope Its kinda like when Bugs Bunny finally beat that frggin turtle, only to get arrested by an over zealous po-po (prolly a distant coachx ancestor)

  7. Even if there is the question of is Foligno a keeper in the long run, who cares. As long as he is on ice, he's the leader. That's a fact. Putting the C on anyone else is just wool on our eyes.

  9. We(fans) were talking entire off season along about that - C for Foligno, who is a real WARRIOR in any parts of the club. He was the best candidate from the entire team.

  10. The chemistry on the Fiala/Green/EEK line is just off. I think Fiala just looks discombobulated. He throws passes to nowhere and no one. He takes inexplicable shots, and stick handles his guys off-sides. I like him as a player, but he needs to ADAPT to his line-mates capabilities, as opposed to neutralize them with his play. Kap is exactly the opposite of Fiala. He might try too hard to involve his line mates (needs to shoot more)

  11. We somehow managed to stay in the game despite Goldies' jump at the start of the game. There was that huge flurry around Fleury at the end where we should have scored. Now I'm afraid the Goldies will have quite a lot of jump at the start of the second. Difficult game. Hang on boys! Mayhew looking fast, perhaps it's the Goldies' speed that reveals who can skate with them.

  14. It isn't about just hat tricks that was just one example I am talking about like Pasta did the other night and came out and dominated and carried his team. When was the last time Giroux did that and just elevated everyone around him? Exactly. Awesome talk I'm ready for the next excuse and please with the other team gets paid too ****. The Flyer have a choice to show up as well.

  15. I'm not sure why people are so concerned about Hart. He's 22 years old. Typically goalies take a few years to figure the NHL out. Most guys don't get sniff of the NHL till there 23-24. I'm not sure in last nights game which goal he was suppose to stop. Maybe the first goal but he made a good move. It's not just Hart. They had a crazy stat on sports talk radio the other day of the top 15 goalies in the NHL this season how many weren't the starters for their teams. I did take a look at NHL.com and its quite interesting.

  16. The last time Giroux even had a hat trick was April 2018. The only hat trick Jake has ever had was February 2013. Giroux's last hat trick vs a top opponent was vs Pittsburgh in 2012. Let that sink in a minute. Coots is the only star on this team who show up nightly from the forwards.

  17. It because the Flyer best players vs the better teams don't show up. It always has to be a group effort. When is the last time they have had a Giroux or a Jake or a Hayes has had a Pastrnak like game vs one of those top teams? It's been so long I can't even remember one. So when you face a top team and their players show up and then the Flyer stars shrink well that to me tells me it isn't on the coach. It's on the guys living the life and cashing the checks. But when does it change? When Giroux and Jake are just memories.

  18. I do not see AV as the problem. He is an activist and sincerely committed to holding people accountable. This is a strange season and COVID may be presenting operational "noise" that gets in the way of player development. That said, it impacts all teams. Last year's performance against MTL + NYI coupled with our Bruins experience this year--and PIT last night, tells me we have a tough time against top-tier forward talent. These quick scores that leave our goalies exposed to high chance shots are troublesome. I am also a bit worried about Hart. He ma

  20. No need to worry he will be fine. His numbers so far are very close to the best goalie in the NHL at the same age: Andrei Vasilevskiy. And at 21 Hart had slightly better numbers than him actually. Hart won 24 games at that age and Andrei only 11. So there is still hope....I hope they get lucky and he does end up as good as Andrei. #fingerscrossed

  21. I like that he's a competitor and holds himself to a really high standard. Every interview I've seen with that kid, he's so even keeled. Even after he's busted equipment in anger he's kind of calm and analytical about it. I don't think it jacks him up even in the short term. Like OR says I think he needs to work through the adversity and make the adjustments to his game. Looks to me like the league has scouted him pretty well and shooters have an idea where they want to put the puck against him. He'll have to adjust, I think based on everything I've seen s

  23. Have a nice day all. Fishing would not be too bad. It was not a bad game. The Goodies are good and this time the hot goalie excuse was not totally an excuse. Fleury did play really well. We still might have lost without a hot goalie playing against us.

  26. You are perhaps right. Unfortunately, we do not have many of those players for doing that job. Maybe Gordeev will fit that role?

  28. For $hits and giggles, I checked to see if my/your eyes were correct: VEGAS: 21 of 23 over 6 feet (many over 6'2") 13 over 200lbs and 8 slightly under. Yep, big team. They skate well too. WILD: 13 of 25 over 6 feet, and 6 of 25 over 200lbs - OUR EYES DON'T Lie Lou Ferrigno, once again proving he should have one of the A's

  29. Our worthless A on defense rings it right around the boards to the defenseman, whom passes to center to almost make it 2-0. Sit this chump down. This $hit happens almost every game. He has no hockey IQ at the moment (if he ever did), it might have fallen off more than his 'skill.'

  31. I absolutely hated the pick then and I still hate the pick and there are several reasons why I hate the pick. First, I hated the fact that O'Brien stuck to playing in a high school league that he absolutely dominated in. There was no challenge for him and he should have moved to the next level (USHL). I do remember that he played a handful of games at the USHL level and then when things got tough, he split back to the comforts of the Massachusetts High School Hockey League because it was 'easy'. Then, he goes to college, runs into injury and discipline issues and then he splits bec

  32. With this defense needing a boost i just for the life of me can't figure out why this kid didn't get a chance to play defense for a few games... ...why can't kid's work on their game you know during a game??? God forbid he proves useful...

  33. I agree with you in the way you frame it, but I think I view the team with rosier glasses. I actually think we're simply stabilizing the defense away from being a threat. But I'm really not in favor of blowing huge holes in the roster to do it. Certainly not Sanheim. And, really, not someone like Patrick or even Laughton or some of the others. I don't really like even talking about Frost in an Ekholm deal. Like you, when we wade into trading such names, I want looking term. And in the case of either Ekholm or Savard, I don't want either one to resign. I like Savard

  34. It's not an excuse it's the truth. The other teams have good players. Even the bad teams. Giroux's game has changed, he's not the player he was as a young guy. The last time Giroux elevated the team around him was probably 2018 when he carried the team the whole season and was a Hart finalist, and a few times in the years before that. It is in the past but it's kind of the recent past. He's not worthless, he wins draws is a good two way player. I can't help the team offered him a good contract and he signed it. Pastarnak is a top player and

  35. This was a hat trick that secured a playoff spot vs the Rangers. it was pretty awesome, I don't think the Rangers sucked...did they? maybe, it was against the King though. So i'll take exception to the he hasn't done anything since 2012 bit. Also I would like to point out there are guys that play in the leauge their whole careers and don't even have 1 hat trick. So, just because our guys seem to give them up weekly doesn't make them a thing that happens for everyone. It's rare. okay good talk.

  36. It's all good. That's the way I took it. What's amazing is that we're this far into the season and I was still asking the question. LOL

  37. So I was asked to ask you all this question. With how the schedule is (lots of 2-game series and even back-to-back games) and not being able to watch the games like normal, we're not writing a post-game after every game. It's also more of a summary of the 2 games. Do you prefer that style or do you want the original post-game after every game? Let us know.
