  1. Think they are both PO-type players. This team needed some grit on the lower lines. I feel like Bunnaman/Frost etc. would not be able to handle PO hockey.
  2. Probably not a major issue for the regular season, but would prefer Thompson to Bunnaman in the POs. Sounds like he should be back by then. Didn't see the game, but by most accounts it seems Rask was the difference maker. Really interested to see how they respond against TB. Also, just as this team is generating more fan interest than it has had in the recent past and the building is starting to come alive, fans are being told by the Philly government to avoid going to games due to COVID-19. I know there are much more serious concerns about the virus, but it's a shame for the Flyers and fanbase. Full disclosure: I have tickets for the 29th against the Pens and was planning on taking my son to his first of the season (had conflicts for each of our two previous games). Looks like this will be the third game we miss this year. Might be the first time in my life that I haven't attended a regular season game in Philly (we did see them in NJ this year).
  3. Agree. Myers, and the defense as configured with Myers in (and with Ghost out of) the lineup, seems to have been playing very well. Nothing against Ghost, but I don't think he's been missed much -- defensively, at least. It's also a tough spot for Ghost to be thrown into a game. AV will have his work cut out for him to limit Ghost's exposure to the Bergeron line and to limit his d-zone starts.
  4. Yeah, wish I was around more to post, especially this last half. Hoping to be around more, especially for the POs.
  5. Been a while since last posting. Work and life have been very busy for a while. Watching games (or parts of) when I can. All in all, really have enjoyed this season and am looking forward to tonight's game and the TB game. I won't be able to watch live tonight (work), but expect this to have a PO-like atmosphere especially with a shot at first place on the line. Plus, I think the Flyers actually match-up pretty well against Boston. Really like the confidence and resilience this team has at the moment.
  6. They kind of do, but no one is among the top 40. I think Konecny is barely in the top 50 and Giroux is barely in the top 100 in terms of points. Couturier and Voracek are a little higher than Giroux. I am concerned that Giroux and Voracek don’t seem to be producing as they have in years past. Honestly, I feel like Giroux has been a bit MIA this year. He seems to have regressed. Same with Voracek. The hope was that those guys would remain at or above the same level in recent years past and for the younger guys and Hayes to rise up. Instead, Konecny and Lindblom rose, but the vets have slid in terms of production. Bit unfortunate.
  7. Been very busy with work for the past few months and haven't been posting much. But from the games I've seen, particularly recently, this team has been a lot of fun to watch. It's nice to root for the team rather than sitting there shaking my head with a sense of dread that things are about to fall apart. Also, very nice to see them reel off four wins in a row after three losses. They don't seem to get mired in the losses. They've played fairly consistent hockey. They haven't lost more than 3 games in a row and have had a 5 game win streak and two 4 game win streaks. Coaching and goaltending go a long way. Have to say, all of Fletcher's moves this offseason have paid off. Even Elliott.
  8. Lol. Sounds like it's up Neuvirth's alley as well.
  9. Really sucks for Morin. Kid should move on to another role in hockey. I bet the Flyers will find something for him.
  10. Kind of noticed that as well, at least in the last couple. Part of it may have to do with his linemates and/or role. Still think Hayes is contributing in other ways. have zero problem with him to daye. Less concerned about Voracek than Ghost. Ghost hasn't responded to anything the past couple of years. And Voracek has largely been the same player over that time as well. We will see. Not so sure about that either. A few teams have demonstrated recently (Carolina, NYI) that success can be achieved by executing a system well and playing as a team. When a player freelances or breaks the system, stuff starts to fall apart. Besides, you'd think one place he'd excel "by being Ghost" is on the PP. But yet he's not been good there either. I wouldn't change my system or gameplan drastically to support Ghost.
  11. Might work for some! The coach/player relationship has changed dramatically. Players have so much power nowadays and are told how great they are that they can probably demand naps and pudding cups and get them.
  12. This is my concern as well. Or maybe they lose confidence when coaches criticize or try to change their games. Or maybe they just don't want to listen.
  13. Next game I watch, I'm going to try to track it. It was very noticeable in the Devils game. Felt guys from both teams were getting tossed regularly, but Hayes was the most frequent offender.
  14. Tend to agree, but different people respond better to different tactics. And some people don't respond at all, regardless of the tactic. I'm not criticizing the staff, as I think this team generally needs the "whip" until it earns the staff's trust. So, at this point, I tend to agree that those that don't respond are probably better off parting ways. Besides, this group has had a variety of coaches and styles over the years and they haven't done much under any of them.
