  1. In regards to where Patrick goes when he's able to play is pretty straight forward. 28 Claude Giroux - 14 Sean Couturier - 93 Jakub Voracek25 James van Riemsdyk- 13 Kevin Hayes - 49 Joel Farabee 23 Oskar Lindblom - 19 Nolan Patrick - 11 Travis Konecny (60+ Goal line}12 Michael Raffl - 24 Mikhail Vorobyev - 21 Scott Laughton 44 Chris Stewart
  2. I wonder what Seravalli has to comment on the game tonight and Hayes contract value.
  3. I believe it was Bill Clement that mentioned Kevin Hayes game reminding him of Kieth Primeau.. I thought I saw his shadow out there as well.. Feel the Shake! Highway To The Dangerzone....
  4. Where I'm looking at it, is through which tool is better for our team. I would of loved to of won on Duchene because of his scoring. But in regards to what our team could use more of is another Coots type player. Hayes is a big body and almost uses it as a shadow of Jagr in how he is able to hold on to the puck. I think Hayes is playing better offensively in the O and B. He seems to be the better part for our team than Duchene would of been. Would Duchene have been in AV's doghouse by now? I don't know. But Hayes is playing the right way and has the tools to seem to be an effective Playoff player in a deep run 7 game series. I know it's premature but Playoff Primeau's shadow seems to be on the ice when I see Hayes skating up and down. I don't recall what it was a goal, a chip in, and assist but Hayes was gassed and he was able to expend a bit more energy to complete his play in one of the previous games where he came back on the bench and I was impressed by his perseverance in going the extra mile. I think he scored a goal or created a goal scoring opportunity. Duchene might end up scoring more goals or points than Hayes. But if someone asked me to trade Coots for a higher goal/point scorer, I would pass because Coots is able to do more things than just wrack up the points. Again Duchene would of been a nice pickup for sure. But I think Hayes is what this team needed and because of the high cost to entry to get him, this thread started out as he was way over payed and not worth it. He seems to be using his smarts and physical abilities now. Five years from now, he should still be able to use his smarts even though his physical abilities might not be as high. He can also play wing to complicate things less going forward.
  5. The Eye test doesn't justify those numbers. He has been a positive factor in each game. Have you seen him play? "Right market value". is what it is. Look at Duchene. Hayes is more valuable that's for sure and cheaper. The market is this right and will be right alot higher in the next 7 years. The league needs to remove the cap ceiling and let teams be allowed to buy who they want. Bankrupt the cap ceiling to remove it from the league.
  6. Maybe we could find out what other teams want for him, and see if what they are offering is what we would take back if we had Stecher and come up with a trade to Vancouver to get them do a 3 way trade. But right now we have a Team that needs to play the system and not think the system. So we do have a full plate right now.
  7. I will say this about Hayes, in watching him play, he is looking like he is living up to his contract. He is falling into Couturier level of knowing how to hold on and maintain control of the puck, he was able to score a nice behind the net wrap around goal and is able to 9 out of 10 times skate with the puck out of the defensive zone and if trapped, he seems to be able to put it out of harms way. His determination defensively is reminiscent of Coots skill level as well. I would trust him with the puck on his stick in the same company as Claude and Sean. Lindblom is getting there as well. Hayes also can be another face off option as well. He is more versatile then Duchene. He has a LeClaire'ish way of putting his backside to the puck to protect it as he's going into the high danger zones. Kenny Loggins would be proud.
  8. It's interesting that the writers that watch the AHL a few years come away with believing over the body of work of two years, they come away with N.AK being the more consistent proven player during the season than spurts of preseason mojo that seems to enthrall the coaching staff of the Flyers, after making that comment saying it was the best they've seen N.AK play in that one game. When he has had better games in the AHL. I would of rather have N.AK play in Pitlicks spot, but they payed for his plane ticket so there's that.
  9. [Hidden Content] The winger will be sticking around after all. Yesterday we got the latest round of roster cuts, and a shocker among them was Nicolas Aube-Kubel. NAK had performed well so far this preseason, and many expected well enough to earn himself a roster spot. That didn’t happen, but he has cleared waivers according to Charlie O’Connor of The Athletic. 64 people are talking about this We were also informed yesterday that there would be a good bit of roster activity in the opening portion of the season — so while Aube-Kubel finds himself in the AHL right now — I wouldn’t be too surprised to see him with the Flyers before November. [Hidden Content] When the Flyers submit their roster, don't fall in love with it. Right now, "It's just about getting ready for Prague," Chuck Fletcher said. "We could even carry 20 or 21, we'll just have to see how the cap situation and how the math works out," the Flyers' general manager said on a conference call Tuesday. "I anticipate an awful lot of roster changes the first six weeks of the year. Our goal right now is to get a roster to play Chicago in Prague. When we get back, I'm sure there will be things we need to do as we move forward. "There's not going to be any final roster, final cuts. There's going to be an ebb and flow of players between Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley for the early part of the season, depending on who we're playing, the health of our team, whether we need right shots or left shots, or wingers or centeremen." Though I was initially bothered he got cut from roster. I understand the coaching staff want to know what they have in these remaining young players. Sending N.AK down now raised his chances of not getting claimed due to other teams having to cut down their own rosters and trying to extend looks at some of their own players. They can't spend extra time keeping a claimed prospect for another 30 days when they're trying to field their own final team. The coaching staff must of learned from loosing Martel, when they sent him down at the last minute for teams to pick up a player, after their squad was set.. At least he's getting some media praise for his work in the preseason.
  10. N.AK looked solid, especially as one of the few who actually took it to the islanders at 3 on 3. He did nice passes and looked like a player that can make a difference on the ice if he can have 2 other players on his line that can keep up. Kase as well. Morin looked solid in yesterdays game as well.
  11. Unfortunately Allison's recovery wasn't as smooth as the others who had that procedure done to them. One thing though if he had signed, he could of had the Flyers Training staff and doctors work on his recovery and/or secondary surgery to make sure he is well taken care of. Since he's not signed, he has to go about it without the Flyers getting officially involved.
  12. I understand the need for Fletcher to get two veteran Dmen to start out this year. Too much youth on D and the way the team D was being played and allowing so many shots/goals against, starting the year with Morin and Myers/Haag/Sanheim was just too young as a team to run with from an upper management point of view to roll the dice this year. I am fully unhappily on board, but unhappy in how we got here. but if we are going to turn this around, we have to start with Known Good Pieces, not necessarily high Good, but "Good on Paper", Good players in the sense of running a defensive team system with pieces that are experienced enough to be able to go out there and do the job. Braun and Niskanen have resume to do just that and show the young guns how it's done night in, night out. I just hope Morin gets time in on the rotation.
