  1. Ahhh...my memory failed me. Kinda why you could hear a pin drop, huh?
  2. Word is his KHL team is offering him large money to stay in Russia. NHL has a strict entry level contract so dont know how they would get around that...bonus? But cap on that also..no?
  3. First of all...Leaky Leighton never moved on that shot and it was no heat seaking missile! Was not obstructed from what I remember...any decent goalie gets something on that shot to deflect it!! Scary to think but if Leighton wins that game and game 7 back in Philly...he probably signs s 8 year deal...lol Second...my Uncle Dan (RIP) met Stickle in a bar and bought a round for him...Hab fan so was not pissed BUT he did say my nephew ....who is a Flyers fan says "you suck donkey balls"!! So I got an indirect shot in. ..LOL! .
  4. The problems on D are fixable, but it will take a historic bit of creativity to get the job done. Among other pressing issues is the need for defensive depth...ie making sure there is ample depth to survive inevitable injuries in a long playoff run.
  5. In my little world, the Leafs are the Flyers main rival. I rejoice with every Leaf loss. Still up in the air, but I have a sneaking suspicion the Leafs let the wrong guy go and Hunter was the best choice available. Should be interesting to see what Dubas can do... cause he needs a legit back up goalie and with their top 4 d men able to leave...he must go all in.
  6. It's called lack of professionalism. You are paid millions of dollars to perform a function...do it no matter which team/conundrum is placed before you. Beyond that...and more important is self pride and being the Alpha Male.. not letting anyone dictate the play to you...take what is yours...like a Lion in the wild. Not enough Alpha males on this team.
  7. Good chance Binns shuts them out...as soon as the Blues pp gets a few chances...the floodgates will open.
  8. There is no way Elliott beats Binnington in St.Louis! Flyers just dismal on the road...and against the best defensive team in the league. Only reason to leave JVR on the pp is to hope he goes on a hot streak and improve trading value?
  9. Best way to resolve the JVR situation is to give up a 3rd or 4th round pick to entice someone to take the cap hit. Sounds gross, but that is the easiest way out. Either that or a trade for a middling prospect that has little hope of cracking the NHL. That does not really give a lot of incentive to take on a guy or his cap hit, with no heart and no real love for the game. I would think a team like Arizona would be looking for a top 6 winger...its clear a mid 30's Kessel is only going to regress from this point on.
  10. Hopefully this is nothing serious, or the Flyers season theme song is slip sliding away...as in potential playoff spot. Even a first round series gets all these kids some valuable playoff experience. It's a different game in the playoffs and you need experience dealing with decreased space and increased intensity.
  11. Gonna be some real heat on the next battle of Alberta. Probably wont happen...but craving some good old fashioned retribution violence....and call up the goon reinforcements...blood plz!!!
  12. Never witnessed the first fight between them...but not surprised. Tkachuk is a turtling little weasel. If he pulled this crap in the original 6...he would have been pounded into retirement. If you wanna throw dirty hits, at least answer the bell for it.
  13. This game will be NAK's break out. I see a blow out Flyers win...7-1 and NAK getting a natural hattie right out of the gate...in total 3 goals and 2 assists for NAK. His linemate Hayes has a 4 point night.
  14. Kass wont let this go. He fought many guys more than once in his Spitfire career. Stubborn SOB if there ever was one. Lifetime feud coming...gonna be fun to watch unfold. Cant wait to see Kass rag doll him again!
  15. The usually reliable tandem of Rask and Halak has turned in a few stinkers of late. All par for the course in a long season. Plus some key defensive injuries have not helped. They will come around. A real positive is the secondary scoring has been somewhat respectable...a good sign for them.
  16. Very cool. That was a thing of beauty. He obviously practised that kind of shot...got some nice air under that sucker!!!
  17. I believe there will be at least one, maybe two buy outs in the next CBA. Why? Because it makes sense for both sides. The teams get badly needed do overs...thus freeing up cap space to sign other players....and the NHLPA has members players paid up front. Many of these players would have been riding buses in the AHL later in their careers so the teams can save the 1 mill in cap space.
  18. The Ghost injury sucks. He could have been part of a key deadline deal. Now, he might not be healthy to facilitate such a deal. Hard to know his true value anyway.
  19. A few things could be at work here. The kid has a clause in his contract that he can return to Russia if he is not in the NHL. Maybe he forced their hand? I think Georgiev is in play here. A young gun like Kapanen comes back the other way. If that is the case, you at least wanna see the kid at the NHL level before giving up your other young goalie.
  20. Marco Rossi turned 18 last September. This is the young Austrians 2nd year in the OHL. He plays for the Ottawa 67's. As a 16/17 year old last year he played 53 games. 29 Goals, 36 Assists, 65 pts in 53 games?!? As a 17 year old in one of the best leagues on the planet?? Oh, and he was +51. This year he has GONE OFF!! He is leading the entire OHL in scoring...something that is rare for a draft eligible player. In 29 games this year he has 26 goals, 42 assists and a staggering 69 pts! He is scoring at an incredible 2.38 points per game. That is 4th best all time right now. The top 3?? 1) Eric Lindros 2.61 2) Connor McDavid 2.55 3) Patrick Kane 2.50 THAT is some impressive company! A lot of mocks have him #8-#13ish. He is smallish at 5'9 and 180...if he was 6'2 he goes top 3...but the fact he might not go top 10 speaks volumes for the top end talent this year. Just thought the forum needed a Marco Rossi thread. We should be talking about him.
  21. Was not really commenting on the play of USA..just noticed some of the regular posters that discuss the tourney have been missing from the start. I liked USA chances with that veteran defense..just did not work out.
  22. Not supposed to win...coming off 2 stinkers.. So...Flyrers 4 Knights 3 in OT...Vorachek with the winner.
  23. Seems like they had defensive depth but not 4 lines like usual. Think every d man was returning except York, which explains the lack of playing time. I would expect him to be pp qb #1 next year.
  24. I noticed that...not to many USA posters this year...
