  2. After an entire post about the liability of the medical community you end with this Yes, "Richards" had the problem. Called "the next Bobby Clarke" even before being drafted by the Flyers. Thrust into the captain's role too early. Given essentially a lifetime contract. Team expected him to play injured an entire season. To foster his recovery he was given pain medication he was likely already dependent on to play through - this still being of the "pills like candy" era that Lehner recently referenced. And all of this under the "watchful eye" of Clarke and H

  3. They're in Year Ten with one playoff round win to show for it. They're about to miss the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time since 92-93/93-94. The problem with talent on this roster goes back much further than 2014 and isn't at all limited to Hextall's drafting. The Phantoms missed every playoff from 2009-2016, then lost in the first round twice, and have missed the playoffs 2018-2022. What is it about that franchise that you think solely indicts Hextall for it's failure? That's five years of missing the playoffs before He

  4. Nothing against you Wild fans...but I just have to vent against your franchise for firing Chuck Fletcher, enabling the inept that is upper Flyer management to hire him on as GM. That is all.

  5. Yandle is perfect. Along with JVR and Hayes he is helping them move up the draft board, and for way less money than the other 2. Keep up the really bad work. BITFU.

  7. At the end of the 2009 season, he had surgery on both shoulders, having played the whole season with both injured. I'll speculate he was on some painkillers at this time and was given painkillers following surgery. He starts the 09-10 season with five goals in three games, ultimately finishing with 31 goals, 62 points, and a ride to the Cup Final in which he was a point per game player. Comes back in 10-11 with another 60+ point season, 7 points in 11 games, lost in the second round. Where exactly is the "red flag" for him that there's "a problem"? There are

  8. Age 35 - thank you Nate (played 360 games in the NHL over 11 seasons (2009-19, 2021)) recording 49 points with Wild and Blues. Nate was a gritty average player - and I remember many times him being called in last second to fill in for someone injured. https://www.markerzone.com/news/index.php?no=78727&s=8

  9. Look you hate the guy, we all get it. He got fired so your argument is vindicated, for now. As far as coaches go, this team was the same before AV, and they are the same now. Firing him hasn't changed a thing. Maybe if you step back away from your singular focus of AV, you might notice the Flyers have lost 8 of 10, and the last 7 in a row. They've had five head coaches in the last decade, all with the same result. A hockey club with no real compete level, a bunch of overpaid underacheivers, a hole in goal, and a porous defense. If you want to lay that on one coach, that's fine by

  10. Quite a show, the game that is (well, the anomalies too...). 1 - 2 punch now with Kap's line magnificent and Boldy-Fiala working almost as well at their best moments. It's looking really good again. That Boldy seems to be a player!

  13. Habs are a complete dumpster fire. They've got open auditions in every position, including goal, so I would think Pitlick can look at this as an opportunity to work himself in as an NHL regular. Horrible team, but opportunity aplenty for a guy like him.

  14. I'm in the camp that firmly believes AV, was not the problem. Firing him did nothing. But it's done. So now what? First, I initially thought having 3 HC on the staff was a good thing. Looking back now, I dont think so. I get the impression the Flyers went into it with the idea that if AV failed, they have 2 possible replacements already under contract. How can a coach operate looking over his shoulder? This seems exactly like something the Flyers would do. Either AV toes the line, or he gets the are. Once again, let's protect our babies (players) at all cost

  17. I was proposing to place Hartman with Kaprizov and Zuccarello multiple times at the beginning of this season. The best chemistry trio I have ever seen for the Wild. Maybe Evason read my messages? . Agree, probably Kaprizov brought them both back to the highest level when practicing together.

  18. If there was a 'Contract of the Year' award for a veteran player, I would say that Hartman's HAS to be at the very top. Goals, +/-, Grit plays are just off the charts for his measly contract. WTH were the Wild thinking playing him on the 4th line for a handful of shifts a few years ago? At least they figured it out. Is that BG or DE that did so? Of course, it doesn't hurt anyone to play with Kap - brought Zucc back from the dead too, being stuck formerly with the Country Club . L O V E Boldy's play so far, as well

  23. As a healthcare worker and practicing pharmacist for over 30+, we, the healthcare community have only ourselves to blame for the Opoid Crisis that now inhabits our communities. During the 1990's, pain scores were considered the 5th vital sign. Hospital scores were based on patient satisfaction scores which in turn dealt with the amount of pain one was on during a hospital stay. At the time I was a community pharmacist for Rite Aid / Eckard / and Walgreen's and during those years the amount of indiscriminate use of narcotic medications prescribed was out of control. It was not u

  24. And once again, that's a development problem with Sanheim. Rather than embrace what he does well and enhance it, they decided to ignore that side of his game and focus on the defensive play. The easiest thing they could have done was let him loose and let him skate with the puck and do all sorts of things, but that was completely coached out of him. I just think of what a coach could do with him. I mean, worst case scenario, you turn him into a Jay Bouwmeester type who can skate like the wind, be smart defensively, but never turn into a scorer. My concern is Provorov and just how much his

  26. Honestly.....looking back at everyone's posts and POV and even analyzing my own thoughts and opinions, I think it a combination of all three in varying amounts. You have a FO who still believes it is the 1980's and loves the good ol' boys club. You have coaches who may or may not be right for this team and are just to thick headed to adjust to the new NHL Finally you have players who some are underachieving and just plain old are not held accountable to their actions on the ice. In reality a perfect storm for suckage. Everyone makes valid points regardless if

  27. That happened in Colorado - North Star fan reaction with Kaprizov's name on his back side of the shirt. We were able to make 40 shots vs their 38 during that game. Last season we had much less shots vs their shots. Kahkonen still was the best player for this game by stopping 35 shots out of 38 into his net, and providing us with a valuable point.

  30. I'm waiting for him to join Kap and Zucc on the PP with Spurg and Brodin. The other thing is someone needs to tell him he does not always have to pass to Fiala, he should shoot more. Right now I like his game more than Fiala's.

  31. Hard Work Not Quite Enough in 4-3 Shootout Loss to Colorado Here is @MNSOTA's post-gamer. As I promised from the preview, lots of extras. Pretty good effort all around by the Wild. We had some chances we didn't capitalize on, but the effort was there. We played like a team that felt it could play with Colorado. That hasn't always been the case. You have to love the confidence this team plays when it pulls its goaltender. It knows they can score; and believing makes a difference whether you're going to be successful in those situations or not.

  32. Kap with 32 points in last 19. 2nd Best in NHL. How's that $9MM really look now on the board? There are 20+ players making more than that per year, and we have him during his peak years at the amount (which will only increase for Top Scorers during that time). B A R G A I N

  35. I'm in the same camp with you ..... this team simply was not good enough for a myriad of reason. Astute observation ..... Maybe having all that experience behind the bench "Should" have helped with the on ice play. Maybe constantly looking over your shoulder was not the way to go. I dunno. It is clear to me that coaching was not issue. I know some will disagree with this assessment. I have often said that the players on this team, especially the veterans, have never been held accountable for their play on the ice .... Hard to argue against th

  36. I was joking- this team has turned into a dumpster fire being pulled by a clown car. I do think there isn't really any motivation for the comcast people to act urgently about the team; because I don't think really rich people feel shame anymore. I don't think Dave Scott cares whether the team is championship level or .500 I also don't think he owns any of the downward spiral the team finds itself in. It is someone else's fault and Comcast's checks still clear. If you were Dave Scott you'd be beside yourself. I don't think Dave Scott shares your va

  41. He is indeed, with this little added extra: I don't know for sure that Fletcher heard Hayes say he wouldn't play for the Flyers unless they overpaid him. Before the $50mil offer that is. I can't swear Fletcher knew but JHC everyone else seemed to know. And that (for me) makes Fletcher the worst GM in Flyers' history. They all made some incredibly stupid moves based on exactly what Rad describes. But none AFAIK hired a player who flat out said, "pay me more than I'm worth or I won't sign."

  42. I would also put Coots on the block, we are definitely going to suck for another 5 years and there is no point in keeping a 29year old player with a big contract . Hayes, JVR and Ellis are not tradable, so you have to sell the best asset we have, which is Coots. By trading and not re-signing G and trading Coots we , gain multiple assets and free up over 15 million. There has to be a few up and coming teams that would want Coots. There are many teams that need a legit #2 center. If we can trade Atkinson , I would do that too. He has been our best player, but with his age and contract , he shou
