  1. Legit point but I wonder how long it took for Hak to start making his stamp on the team. Meaning, implementing his style over the course of time thus slowly chipping away at what makes Ghost....Ghost.

  3. I read this article on Ghost today. I really think (like you) he got messed up by coaching but his raw talents are still there. I believe Yeo has the dmen this year and I wonder if he will be able to coach out that bad stuff Ghost picked up. He has the speed, hands and brains to be where he was a just 2 seasons ago. Add to that they he runs to PP#1 and without him, it's maybe Sanheim...not sure who else. I'd like to see if Ghost, and even Provorov can return to their glory with some proper (non-Hack) coaching. And if they do, their value will grow to never being higher----- next year
  4. I think that new guy is Morin about 30 games into the season. Hagg is serviceable until then IMO. I don't agree with them wanting to bring in a Dman. I think it's a knee-jerk reaction to this year's performance. A new coaching staff and a new strategy (hell, just a decent one..) along with players being held accountable in all three zones could really be enough to make the current defense look much better without a trade.
  5. You aren't alone. I'm with you. I actually wouldn't touch the defense and leave it as is.
  6. That's an option too, especially if they're hell bent on Panarin or Skinner. Then, you're set except for center. It's not horrible. That's an interesting thought outside the box and does put the wingers in the right spot IMO (dropping down one). We'd have to land one of Panarin or Skinner and a decent sized center with skill like Hayes. (Panarin/Skinner) - Couturier - Giroux JVR - (Hayes) - Voracek Lindblom - Patrick - Konecny Raffl - Laughton - Hartman I actually like that lineup very much. That 1st line should be scoring at will. Giroux finally gets a winger worthy of his abilities. Couturier just parks in front of the net and is the first one back-checking allowing the other two to focus more on offense. The 2nd line is okay. I'm not a huge fan but if they can mesh, they are a big body fore-checking type of line that would be tough to play against assuming Alleinnn Vviggnaueltt will hold JVR and Jake accountable defensively. The 3rd line of Konecny/Patrick/Lindblom all end up where they belong at this point in their careers and can do some real damage against other team's 3rd line. This would be the line that I could see as your second line in the near future. Especially as Frost/Farabee and a few others are going to start challenging for spots. Hopefully they can trade or lose one of JVR or Jake to Seattle. The 4th line is pretty decent. Good mix of speed/size/physical and has the ability to score. That could be some team's 3rd (or even 2nd) line if they are playing well.
  7. If I were running the show, I'd buy Briere a big house and pay his kids to move back in with him. Then put Farabee and Frost in the home also. It was was the perfect recipe for Giroux maybe it would work for those two.
  8. I was too. It's a shame they couldn't have been patient. Even one more year....I think next year they start to really click. Then the following year is when this team will start to becoming a contender. I hope Fletch just adds a piece or two without doing something dumb this summer. (Panarin or Stone, sign Talbot and maybe a tweak or two).
  9. It's strange. First time in a long time that the strength of the Phantoms is at forward instead of defense.
  10. Was browsing and one mock had the Flyers taking Alex Newhook. (link) [Hidden Content] He is the type of player the Flyers need. Kid likes the puck on his stick, shoot first kinda kid. 5'11" 190lbs. A little small but you know who else is 5'11" 190lbs, likes the puck on his stick and likes to shoot?
  11. Smart move by him. Lots of talent coming in this year and next. Best for him to stay another year (or maybe two).
  12. Not looking good which sucks because some of those kids need that experience.
  13. Definitely needs some time in the AHL. Will be interesting to see what he does over the summer and if he can challenge for a spot next year.
  14. If he can't be sent down AND they were in the hunt for the playoffs, I can understand wanting to keep the roster as is. However, after last night they have a 0.7% chance of making the playoffs. Even if they won out, they still don't control their own destiny. So, the question remains: Can Morin be sent down without waivers? Would be nice if there was...I don't know....a beat writer for the Flyers that could do a little research and figure out what the options are. Whatever option allows him some games, it would be in his and the team's best interest to get him playing. Even if that means rotating out Amac or playing a 7th.
  15. While I agree, is Q a better coach? Yes. If they can get Q then you say thanks to Gordon and hire Q regardless of what happens.
