  1. What I was alluding to was that Hayes turned out to be a center that we NEEDED, in regards to depth that we didn't know would be so crucial to having, not having Patrick now as to comparing picking up these two players for our stretch run in case someone goes down with a temporary injury and these two players we picked up won't be spooked, come going deeper, into the playoff games and rounds.
  2. I wonder if this is the line up: Claude Giroux - Sean Couturier - Jakub Voracek James van Riemsdyk - Kevin Hayes - Travis Konecny Scott Laughton - Derek Grant - Tyler Pitlick Michael Raffl - Nate Thompson - Nicolas Aube-Kubel Ivan Provorov - Matt Niskanen Travis Sanheim - Philippe Myers Robert Hagg - Justin Braun Shayne Gostisbehere
  3. These guys I hear are great depth insurance players who are vets. Now if there are any injuries we can bring up Bunny and Joel up and Frost as oppose to having really no one to bring up if injuries happen in a seven game series. Look how Hayes turned out as Nolan Patrick has not even been in one game all year. Had Fletch not made that move, where would we be at. In regards to face-offs, in the playoffs that could be the difference of advancing or loosing a winnable series. These players I hear play tough playoff hockey. The GM is giving the coach tools and setting him up for success, not for completly changing the dynamic of the team. They put Farabee and Bunny to get more ice time and improve their confidence/game in the AHL knowing they can bring them up in case of injuries and give the vets on the top six more depth to assist in rolling four lines with known quantities. These are stealth solid moves that have a higher upside to succeed in a playoff environment.
  4. Salaheddine Hoblos @Sal_Hoblos · 45m Replying to @NHLFlyers Many Flyers fans seem to underestimate Thompson. Great veteran, great faceoff and PK guy, gets you the important goals, blocks shots... He does all the small details that some teams are missing. Trust me, you won't regret that one.
  5. Philadelphia Flyers @NHLFlyers Nate Thompson on joining Philly: “I want to come in and lead by example. They have a great core and great leadership there already…I’m just excited to be a part of it and I’m excited to be a Flyer now.”
  6. [Hidden Content] The Flyers are trading for all of the depth forwards! By Ryan Gilbert@RGilbertSOP Feb 24, 2020, 11:56am EST Share this story Share this on Facebook (opens in new window) Share this on Twitter (opens in new window) SHAREAll sharing options Photo by David Kirouac/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Chuck Fletcher is making some moves on the morning of trade deadline day. The Philadelphia Flyers made another trade for a depth forward on Monday morning. The Flyers reportedly acquired center Derek Grant from the Anaheim Ducks for a fourth-round pick and AHLer Kyle Criscuolo. Grant, like Nate Thompson, is a bottom-six center that gives the Flyers more options moving forward. RELATED Flyers trade 5th round pick to Montreal for Nate Thompson Grant has 14 goals (three shorthanded) and six assists for 20 points in 49 games this season. The 29-year-old center is also solid in the faceoff dot, winning 51.4% of his draws this season and 52.5% in his career. Grant has primarily been used in a defensive for the Ducks with just 21% of his shifts starting in the offensive zone. He is a great penalty killer. Not only does he have those three shorthanded goals, his shot attempts against per 60 minutes of 77.76 is the sixth best in the league among forwards with 100+ penalty killing minutes. The Flyers already have the second- and third-best in that category in Sean Couturier (24.25 CA/60) and Kevin Hayes (74.47 CA/60). Grant will assumably slot in on the fourth line for the Flyers. He and Thompson will likely compete with the other players in the bottom six, giving the Flyers two more options to rotate into the lineup. Grant carries a $700,000 cap hit and is an unrestricted free agent after this season.
  7. [Hidden Content] Flyers trade 5th round pick to Montreal for Nate Thompson 8 The 35-year-old comes with a $1.0 million cap hit. By Drew Meyer@DrewMeyerHockey Feb 24, 2020, 11:03am EST Share this story Share this on Facebook (opens in new window) Share this on Twitter (opens in new window) SHAREAll sharing options Photo by Jana Chytilova/Freestyle Photography/Getty Images With just around four hours left for NHL general managers to make trades, it turns out that Chuck Fletcher has pulled the strings yet again and acquired center Nate Thompson from the Montreal Canadiens: 575 people are talking about this Thompson, 35, is regarded as a great penalty killer, is good from the face-off dot (55.0% of face-offs won), and will likely slot in at the 4C spot as the Flyers look to make a playoff run. He has 14 points (four goals, ten assists) in 63 games played, with a 48.66% Corsi-for percentage at 5-on-5, which isn’t amazing but is better than both Tyler Pitlick and Connor Bunnaman’s 5-on-5 CF%. Thompson’s contract is only for the 2019-20 season, so this is almost certainly a rental move for the club. The pick is for 2021, so this is a very no-risk move for the Flyers to make.
  8. Ryan Hartman was maybe that next guy but he wanted more money and don't know if he would of stayed for more than two years.
  9. I understand where you'r coming from, but I think Vignault and the coaching staff would of channeled him to see the light. I just don't see anyone putting the hits like him, maybe Pitlick but when we get Patrick back they're going to go after him, I do see that N.AK wants to stir things up if he gets pushed to it, but he's being more reactionary, which is fine, but Rinaldo was like a hammer head shark just swimming around....waiting for the hit to materialize. I am pretty sure he would give our team that lost dimension we don't really have that I see. Or at least they don't really display more than I can see it.
  10. N.AK is a pretty bad ass if he takes it to another level, if things get out of hand, but I think he's keeping it cool for now and not bringing too much drama to himself. Hoping he turns out to be like Tocchet. Provorov has some strike skills also, he trains in the offseason on striking skills. But that's why I wanted Rinaldo on our team. He kept it real for the opposition. Wasn't it him and (Hartnell?) that sandwiched that Tampa defensive player that took liberty on one of our players a few years back.....That's what I'm talkin' about. We lost Simmonds and traded out Gudas. We just have N.AK and Provocop and maybe Nisky.
  11. I think Sanheim slipped on a mitt on the ice, when he was sliding back on his skates. Ya it looked bad, but I can give him a pass on that. The last thing we need is another Carbomb fight to turn this game around.......................................................sssssssssssssshhhhhhhh!!!!!!
  12. That was one of the most entertaining un-entertaining game of the season so far. Can I get a bounce baby bounce
  13. Not only PP1 but try him out on a line with Coots and G in a few offensive shifts, I know, I know might sound extreme but that way Jake could be put on the Hayes or Laughton line, here and there. One completely frustrating thing I see at almost every game is this: N.AK is waiting for an outlet pass and is heading by the red line and you can see there is an opportunity for him to break out and cause a scoring chance. He reminds me of TK when he does that, but NO ONE, almost absolutely NO ONE passes him the breakout pass and then he circles back to look for another opportunity, It really can make one salty. Pass him the freakin' puck already, give him an offensive freakin' breakaway chance.... When Enemy of the Philadelphia State Mike Milbury gushes over N.AK on National TV and National Broadcasters like saying his name, you know you have a solid player. Change his Jersey number already to 47.
  14. Sorry to hear Howie how you had to hear the announcers from FL. Here's a link to hear it from the Philadelphia point of view: [Hidden Content] You can have the option to select the link with no pop ups.
