  1. I'm only sure it was NOT during the Bester/Wregget years...LOL!
  2. I dont know how early they caught this...but I can make a somewhat educated guess and say if he was not a pro hockey player and subjected to extensive testing...probably would not have found it this early...how many young men in their 20's get tested for something like this? I'm betting not many...so thank the good Lord he IS a pro hockey player...huh? .
  3. They need to rip it the **** down. Start a ECHL goalie until a star #1 franchise center is within their draft sights. Reminds me of the 90's Leafs...just bad enough to barely miss the playoffs but never get to draft the elite players because they are just respectable enough to be middle of the pack draft position wise. This sick cycle can continue for decades until someone has the jam to really...really tank and outright suck.
  4. I get how bad the whole Akim Aliu situation was...but this thing sure seems like it is getting out of hand. Just waiting for the first "I was benched because of my religious belief that snails are divine creatures that leave a trail of godly goo wherever they go!" Every single word or look a coach gives will now be poured over to assure it did not offend or belittle...wtf.
  5. Can he Boldy go where no prospect has gone before? Guess not...unless the snack counter at Boston College games count...lol.
  6. Yeah...if there is ANY spot to NOT do a quicky nepotism hire...it is head of scouting...lol.
  7. Very smart for the up and coming Flyers to insert maximum skill into the line up. Especially the top 9 forwards. There is some growing pains with giving top minutes and pp time to pure rooks...but Frost and Farabee ARE the future...so let's get this prerequisite learning curve outta the way and let these fine talents figure out the league. Nice to be winning while this is happening...a big plus.
  8. Agreed. This is a classic trap game for Philly. In recent history, I would bet on the Flyers against a top 5 team before taking a risk on a team like the Sens. YES...straight up maddening the Flyers lose more than their fair share of these "easy" sub .500 games. Perhaps we can throttle the Sens with a 7-2 thrashing. It would go a long way in my journey to believe this team is "for real".
  9. Thanks! I read up on every single teams prospects from multiple information sources...but still really nice to read an individual knowledgeable fans perspective. Thanks for taking the time. I dont know the history of the Wild scouts...but I would assume Guerin brought in most of his own guys. I have a good feeling about Guerin...but until he proves himself there is obviously a big question mark...with the prerequisite 3-4 yrs to fully implement the regime change.
  10. Kidding, of course. Very nice to see the Wild prospects being discussed at such length. Amazing they have such an electric prospect such as Kaprizov....after years of meh and bland picks. I was high on Greenway a few yrs back ....and still way to early to write him off...but not the dominant power forward I thought he was.
  11. Ummm...I believe this thread can be merged with shortest book ever....thx.
  12. I just shed real tears....of joy. I have a few nicknames for him, terms of endearment for the years of mediocrity he brought to our lives. 1) Mr. Waiver Wire 2) Verstink
  13. How to be civil on message boards.. By the "Leetch thread" on philly.com
  14. The painstaking art of poise under pressure.... By Luke Schenn
  15. How to mentally out think opponents and anticipate plays By Jacob Vorachek
  16. How to maintain your balance at crucial times... By Jalen Mills
  17. Take the shortest path to the puck and arrive in ill humor... By JVR
  18. How to pick the top corner with your team facing elimination By good ol' frosty tips himself...F you and your cups douche!!
  19. I would bathe in a bucket of warm piss to ship them both out of town. It is official...Voradud is the 19/20 season whipping boy!!
  20. Was talking the NAHANA draft...not the NHL...5th round..really our 10th after assigned keepers.
  21. I know Hirch and Patrick were the unquestioned #1 and #2 that year..but part of me wonders if the Flyers strayed from BPA because of sky high expectations of a young Ghost...Sanhiem, Provy..Morin etc...the shine has lifted on some...but did the Flyers ignore Makar because they thought they were set on D? Patrick had injury concerns and still went forward...??
  22. If draft previews are being purchased, I have a recommendation. It's the Hockey News Top 100 21 and under. They attempt to rank them...including undrafted 17 year olds. Fun stuff and some off Flyer prospect placement. I thought Frost should have been ranked higher.
  23. Only missed by 14....lol. I'll say it right here...Makar gets 78 pts this season...breaking the record by 2 pts...best 5th round pick...maybe ever?
  24. I thought Jack Hughes was gonna kill it in Jersey...so I went Jack in the 4th round and Makar in the 5th in NAHANA. Was gonna reverse that but thought Jack might be gone...tough start for him but think he will get better as the year goes. It gets used to much these days...but time to start mentioning the G word in regards to Cale....as in generational.
  25. OK....some crazy stuff going on in Ave's land! The all time record for a rookie defensemen is 76 by the great Larry Murphy. Even Ray Bourque had under 70...he had 4th best with 65 rookie pts. Makar is on pace for 93. Staggering. The scary part is he is doing this with Rantanen and Landeskog both out with serious injuries. Cales hockey sense is outrageous for a rookie...howitzer of a shot...wicked moves, agile and smart. He reminds me of Bourque as a rookie. He has 100 pt potential...as silly as that sounds in this day and age.
