  1. Well, this one has been painful to watch. The Flyers are missing Couturier in the worst possible way.
  2. Agreed. He is an unquestioned team's MVP. Well, he and Hart. The Flyers cannot afford to risk his health. I feel like with their depth, they can weather the storm for 2 weeks.
  3. I looked it up and that's the question that I found unanswered... Just about every source of info on this injury mentions that the recovery is 2-3 months. Yet the Flyers are putting his absence as a minimum of 2 weeks. I don't know... Either they just don't want to spread panic just yet, or they clearly know something we don't.
  4. https://www.tsn.ca/philadelphia-flyers-sean-couturier-out-a-minimum-of-two-weeks-with-costochondral-seperation-1.1578339#:~:text=Philadelphia Flyers centre Sean Couturier,separation%2C the team announced Saturday.&text=Couturier was injured in the,period and did not return. Costochondral rib separation. I guess it could be worse. The whispers were that late last night, the Flyers were afraid he would be gone for the rest of the season. Obviously, it's a big blow, but given the Flyers' depth, I think it's manageable. Also an opportunity for Frost to show what he can do playi
  5. I always liked his game. And he would fit well centering the second line. I mean I would, but it would require some salaries manipulation not to burden the cap too much.
  6. I wouldn't write off the Bruins just yet. Their first line may be the ONLY line they have, but it's a damn good one. And Rask is still one of the better goalies in the game. I do like the way the Flyers look this year, though. Deep, disciplined, committed and... most importantly, finally, FINALLY.... having a premiere netminder. We'll see.
  7. Rad mentioned this date was just a place holder for now. The actual draft day & time in NAHANA wasn't picked yet.... as far as I know. We may need to ping Rad for the final time as we are getting close to the NHL season.
  8. Sorokin is an intriguing option. Being 25 yo, he is not green and not entirely untested as he brings almost 9 years of playing in the KHL. His last 5 years he played for CSKA Moscow - a pretty solid club, albeit no match for NHL. I can see him competing with Varlamov and if not winning the #1 job, at least stealing a lion share of starts from him.
  9. To lose to *this* team, at home, would be bad.... REAL bad.
  10. If Raffl's statement reflects the true mindset of the team as a whole (I hope it doesn't), this is DESPICABLE and PATHETIC. Boy.... what a wonderful set-up, isn't it? Why can't *I* only take certain clients of mine seriously and do a crappy job for the rest of my clients!? Effort - or the lack thereof - should not even factor into the equation. And shame on the coach if he sees this and doesn't address it. You are professional athletes. The money you get paid is what 90% of the general population can only dream about getting. And you are telling me that you *deliberately* lie down on the
  11. Finally!!! Wow. Never thought they would escape St, Louis with a win.
  12. Well... at least they've earned a point - on the road, against the NHL best team, playing a back-up netminder.
  13. Our top scorers are just not getting it done. Pure and simple. Giroux is being a shadow of himself this year...
  14. Infuriating... Just infuriating with this team. Had an opportunity to put this game away. Instead, it is tied and the Blues are storming.
