  1. I dont know what your history is with Giroux or what you have against him. To be honest, I'm not totally against triaging him or ANY other player on the team. I'm curious though, do you think Giroux is the best player on the team? If not, who is? If he's the best player on the team, why would you target him first?
  2. I'm not saying he's out of place either. I wanted to send him back to get some winning under his belt and also get a team in front of him that can play for him. I dont know if constant losing and lifeless play are the best thing for a 20 year old to be backing.
  3. This JJ and Jonesy thing is awesome. JJ is annoyingly upbeat sometimes and you wonder if that's him or if he's just being a "company man". It's good to hear some honesty from him. I agree with sending Hart back to LHV. I'm the first guy to want the young kids up to play for the flyers. I feel like they should be able to play for the big team if they are as good as we think they are. This is different though. I think Hart has played pretty well but the team has given up in front of him. I wouldn't mind riding Macenna for the rest of the games....all 40 of them. I'm done watching...with the exception of the "sit down at 1pm on a Saturday and relax with a beer" game. It's been time to blow it up, and it's more obvious now than ever. Giroux might be my favorite player ever, but he cant make this team better now. If they could get something for him, I wouldn't be upset if he's gone. That's only if they send the trash out with him though. 93 would be my first choice.
  4. I'm not saying that Rinaldo adds any value to the preds, but I think it's funny how an elite team in the league will give him playing time, yet the entire flyer fanbase thought hextall was a God for getting rid of him. I guess the fans know better though.
  5. Maybe this has already been covered, but what can I expect to see from Gordon? What is his style of coaching? To be honest, I still dont know Hak's style was. It was like there was no style. He just told the guys to play hockey while he slept with his eyes open.
  6. I listened to all of 0 seconds of the press conference on 97.5. They had great coverage. Apparently Nick Foles is better than Carson Wentz. That confused me though because those guys dont even play for the flyers. I thought maybe...just maybe they weren't airing the press conference of a head coach firing in a major sport, but that wouldn't be the case. 97.5 is the radio station of the flyers, and their mid day host/station management is a hockey guy. So for those who didnt hear it, Nick Foles is better than Carson Wentz and someone brought up a mafia movie quote. Brian Westbrook will explain more at 4. Maybe Jason Stark will take some time from HOT STOVE talk to answer questions about Quenville. He feels intimidated when talking hockey because Tyrone and Natalie know so much about hockey, he couldn't possibly add anything else.
  7. We are the champions my friends....and we'll keep on fighting to the end. I also have blur song 2 in my head.
  8. I've never seen a goalie issue like this in my life.
  9. Dont get me wrong, I do believe this will happen, and it will probably happen pretty soon. I just dont know how the team is screwing this up in any way. I'm just going to sit back and wait for my phone to blow up.
  10. I'm not trying to be a prick here, but I think I may be missing something. Isn't all this just rumor right now? Did the flyers officially announce something that I didnt see? If that's not the case, did they screw up anything? I feel like everyone expects it to happen, rumors are started, nothing has happened yet, and now people think the flyers have done a bad job with the announcement of a decision that they haven't made yet. Maybe I'm wrong?
  11. There are many players with cups that aren't better than Giroux. I'm sure Clarke was better in his day and there has to be a separate category for goalie. I dont know if you're kidding about trading Giroux or not, but I mentioned it 3 years ago when I realized what Hextall was doing. If he was unwilling to go for it, and he was going to sign guys like umberger, lehtera, and weise, why keep Giroux around and why extend voracek for $8.5M per year. I think Hextall had good intentions, but by not going all in on a tank, he didnt make this team any better than what it was before he got here. Sure, they stocked their system with some unknown talent, none of which I would consider to be superstars in the making, and they have some cap freedom, which doesn't do much good if you're not willing to use it, but he wasted the opportunity to really use a superstar that he already had. He could have traded Giroux and voracek and maybe landed some top 3 talent that could become superstars at the same time provorov, koneckny, frost, and Hart start to become good players. Now, they have to hope that Giroux will still be a major contributor in the next three years or so. Maybe they'll squeeze a cup out of him before he goes on the decline.
  12. It looks like a lot of people have him in the top 5 of all time. I came around on Hextalls plan toward the end. I knew that we had to build through the draft. A major flaw to his plan was that he wasnt "going for it" when he had the 2nd or 3rd best player in flyers history. By the time his plan came together fully, Giroux would probably be on the decline, without a Giroux in the system to fill his spot. This team will be a team of a bunch of good players in a few years but they wont have a superstar to take them to the next level. They have one now and are wasting him.
  13. When talking about "the best", it comes down to feel. Like you said, he is so important to this team and he's the only reason they ever have a chance.
  14. Goalie is obviously a different category.
