  1. I guess this comes under the "time will tell" gig! I wish our D youngins had grown faster or in case of Meyers, better.
  2. The press on Risto is uniformly bad. I hope he gets his bleep together.
  3. I worked tonight and settled for highlights. It looked like the Risto-Sanhem pairing was pretty inept. I hope they can work ot out.
  4. One way of looking at this is the following. If the guy shows sustained incompetence early on, I suspect possible waiver. They can't afford to run Hart into the ground. Fletcher and Flahr aren't idiots. If save percentage is below .900 and GAA is considerably worse than Hart, they will save on cap and see if a farmhand is an upgrade on Lyon. That is one dude's opinion.
  5. Greetings: The Bruins are favorites for this match: https://www.covers.com/nhl/bruins-vs-flyers-picks-predictions-october-20-2021 Boston plays well in Philly, going 4-1 in the last 5. This could be a battle of defenses. It looks like Swayman versus Jones. If that is the case, we get a read on our D and whether we have a "new-and-improved" Jones.
  6. Well, the O and B had some Wheaties. Will they carry through to period 2?
  7. Greetings: Yes, this could be a trying time for the team. Truth be told, I wish we had another top-tier center to pair with Farabee. Then, I'd put our Selke winner on #2 and have a much more competitive team. Our D is a mess, but winning also means puck possession and time in the attack zone. We win faceoffs...OK, then what? It is depressing.
  8. Greetings: We are installed as the favorite in Hakstol's homecoming: https://betting.bookieblasters.com/free-picks/nhl-picks/kraken-at-flyers-101821-nhl-betting-odds-and-picks/ Here is the lineup: Carter Hart will start in net Monday night. The Flyers will have a morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center. Here's how the Flyers looked Sunday at practice: Forwards Claude Giroux-Sean Couturier-Travis Konecny Joel Farabee-Derick Brassard-Cam Atkinson Oskar Lindblom-Scott Laughton-James van Riemsdyk Max Willman
  9. This didn't leave me with the warm and fuzzies. Agreed with others that falling asleep after the first was bad. Hart's awareness of surroundings was awful. I think Morganti or Jones commented on that. I also wonder if opponents are targeting high glove? Last point: I think we will see York sooner than later. Let him grow on a third line pairing. I have doubts about the D Corp, with or without Risto. They cant play Ellis and Provo 28 mins plus each game, which they did tonight. They will wear out.
  10. I thought this was supposed to be a new beginning. So far, 20-21 Redux!
  11. I think they took Xanax between periods. What a mess.
  12. That may be better than Robert Esche....shoot, maybe he could suit up if our tandem has problems.
  13. Sorry, strictly unintentional. BTW, this season is critical for AV and CF. I would say non-playoff ends their tenures. The same may hold for a first round exit.
  14. Fordyce and Hall think York will be a regular by mid-season due to need and Braun's aging. Hayes' return will bring more shuffling. I suspect the squad on Black Friday will have different faces.
