  1. Since we are headed for another year without playoffs and the paper is starting to publish our "Tragic Number" I thought it would be fun to start a thread where we can write funny epitaphs for the Flyers and also the other teams as they miss the playoffs or are eliminated from the playoffs. (This thread would be in the spirit of the Shortest Books and We Welcome You threads...) I will start us off... Here lies the 2014-2015 Philadelphia Flyers: They dropped points in the shooutout and lost to bad teams, they looked lost on most nights due to Chief's lack of schemes or how about this one Here lies the 2014-2015 Philadelphia Flyers: They beat good teams at home but sucked on the road Vinny (and Umby) stole money while Chief coached like a chode (for brains)
  2. The latest incarnation of the "We welcome you" thread, We welcome you... Also Harry Houdini, we welcome you... (I put that because that was the example Bak used when creating this thread on the original board...it is a kind of homage)
  3. People who liked me at the old forum By Buffalo Rick, with a foreword by Vader and Tucker How to moderate a message board By JMT And for old times sake my all time favorite... My hardest checks By Jeff Carter
  4. Please enjoy this blast from the past! I was only a Flyers fan for 1 month+ when this was shot as I became a fan in November of 1984. Many of my old faves are in this video and sadly we have to say R.I.P. to more of the people in this video than we would like. Finally about my man Dave Poulin, what was up with that sweatshirt?? Merry Christmas Flyers Fans to you and your families and Happy new year...just think of it this way, we are 1 year closer to our next Stanley Cup. Sincerely Poulin20
  5. Anyone remember this classic headline after the final Ottawa massacre on May 5th 2003, starring Roman Cechmanek (or Roamin as the Daily news used to call him) and the gang who couldn't shoot straight?
  6. Thanks to Boston blowing a point to the Canes last night the Flyer magic number now = Braydon Coburn, Kevin Haller, or even Kerry Huffman Catch my drift? Feel free to join in especially as the number hopefully decreases!
  7. I cant believe that 31 Years ago today I attended my first game. I was in 3rd grade and was 8 years old. It was a Sunday night game vs Edmonton. Oilers were still undefeated at this point in the season and the Flyers were the youngest team in the league. I had never been to or seen hockey at any level in my life and had no idea what to expect or if I would like it or not. Truthfully at that time I didn't even care for watching sports. What I saw that night literally changed me forever. At 8 years old It was the most exciting event I had ever witnessed in my life. The play was fast and inspired and the crowd was loud and raucous beyond belief. I didnt know it at the time but it had the atmosphere of a playoff game. If it had been another game or another season I may have never taken interest in the Flyers or hockey but because of this single chance snapshot in time the Flyers have gotten hundreds of games attended out of me and thousands of dollars. That is pretty good bang for their buck, a single game that led to at least 31 years of loyal fandom. Here is the box score followed by the summary of the game that started it all for me... [Hidden Content] November 11, 1984 --The Flyers out-scored the Oilers 4-2 in the third period of a 7-5 home win which ended Edmonton's record-setting unbeaten streak to start an NHL season at 15 games (12-0-3). Philly held a 22-10 shots advantage in the third period and 46-26 in the game. The Flyers scored three times in a span of 2:53 late in the third period and four goals in the final 6:20 to seal the win. Lindsay Carson made it 4-4 with 6:20 left, Mark Howe gave Philly a 5-4 lead with 3:58 to play and Ilkka Sinisalo scored 31 seconds later. Brian Propp (2-1-3) and Dave Poulin (1-2-3) led the offense and Pelle Lindbergh made 21 saves. The Oilers were led by Wayne Gretzky (2-2-4), Jari Kurri (2-0-2) and Andy Moog (39 saves). Kurri's second goal made it 6-5 with 27 seconds to play.
  8. Who Do you think won this Fight? Wild fight!!! I`m Super Excited for the Oilers Season coming up. I have a few question for you guys. Who do you think will get the most: Goals, Points, Assists? Will Nillson Be backup goalie or will scrivens? What will talbots SV% be? And last but not least, how many Points will Mcdavid, Yakupov and Hall get? Let me know your answers, would love to hear your thoughts.
  9. So I got an e-mail today with the title "Surprise! Your Season Ticket Holder Gift Revealed" when I open the e-mail it says: The Flyers Trade Zac Rinaldo to Boston The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired a third-round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft from the Boston Bruins in exchange for © Zac Rinaldo. Click here for more information. [Hidden Content],c3b2d4b,c3df884 I was like wow that is the gift???? I mean I was getting tired of Zac as much as the next guy but they could have given us a little bit something better and more tangible than that. (If it had read VLC and McDud I actually would have been satisfied!) Then I remembered that my personal e-mail (which is still from an ISP that I signed up with in 1998 for Dial-up) is getting a bit antiquated and sometimes doesn't always behave properly when e-mails are sent with lots of HTML codes and graphics. I checked the same message on my phone and found out that they are giving us a triple set of bobble heads seen below Not a bad gift, not great either. (Last years portable phone charger battery thing with Flyers logos all over it has proven to be very useful and was actually one of the best.) Anyway since it is slow around here I thought you would find this episode somewhat amusing! How long till camp now?? In Hex / Hacks we trust LETS GO FLYERS!
  10. I see a ton of anger on the board right now about the team. Do you care to raise these points to the people themselves in charge of this mess? If so then I urge you to attend the STH townhall meeting in my place as I have to be out of town that day. If you and a guest would like to go please PM me and I will arrange for you to get the tickets. Usually they are print at home so I can just e-mail them to you. Let me know as space is limited...first one who PMs me and can definitely take them can have them.
  11. Enjoy this heart warming moment (if you are a Flyers fan anyway) in the hockey pro shop after my son Ben's skating lesson today. Even my mom got into the act as Ben wanted her to see what he was doing! [Hidden Content]
  12. April Fools! At least I didnt do a fake injury or firing as I have done in the past to really piss some of you off!
  13. I thought you guys would find this a bit funny so I thought I would share with you.... Many times during intermission and before the game Adamflyers and I like to stand on the concourse and talk (usually complain) about the Flyers and people watch. At the last game vs the Devils were were doing both while standing near a portable "Dippin Dots" stand that was unmanned with all of its lights turned off. Prior to the game we were saw a couple go up to the stand and decide to stand behind it and use it as a table to eat their pre-game meal of pizza and soda. My brother and I were saying how it would be funny if we went for a few beers got a little ripped and then went up to them and tried to order Dippin Dots from them. Before we had a chance to do such a thing a pair of girls with dyed hair who looked like they were late for their MENSA meeting came up and did just that. The couple tried to explain that they were just eating there and using the stand as a table...the girls didnt believe them at 1st and thought they were just kidding. It took some explaining that they were not kidding and that they were just fans who were eating there. My brother and I were on the floor laughing as we thought who would think these people were working there when they were not wearing a food service uniform and were eating food while behind the stand? It got better though because during the 2nd intermission a father an son where behind the stand both drinking beers back there and were approached by 6 different groups of people ordering Dippin Dots some even with their money out and everything. The father and the son really had to do alot of explaining to convince each of these people that they were not workers there! They knew we were watching and listening in would come and laugh with us every time it happened. In fact by the 2nd half of the intermision is was more like a game to see how many people would come up. I am sure the humor of the whole thing loses its luster when being retold by me on a message board but man when we were there it was so funny. It was like watching the old candid camera episodes except that the setup for the joke was neither elaborate nor purposeful. I will tell you one thing, it was certainly more entertaining than the game itself!
  14. Bryz gives up 5 goals on 24 shots and takes the loss. 79% save percentage seems about right for Bryz. Enjoy OKC Bryz, you may be there a while.....
  15. Up 4-1 with 10 minutes left in the 3rd of game 7 in their first playoff appearance in how many years, and they find a way to f-ing lose the game??? That was absolutely pathetic and I actually felt a very small tinge of sympathy for them. But I got over it. The Laffs continue!
  16. Maybe the most idiotic, classless sign I've ever seen...Also, the coward who sucker punched the Leaf fan, needs his a** kicked too!
  17. After seeing pictures of the victims of yesterday's bombing, especially of the 8 year old boy that was killed, I have so much anger and hatred in my heart that in my opinion if we ever catch who is responsible for this alive, torture with the highest level of excruciating pain for the longest possible duration until death seems the only appropriate punishment. Today, I wish our country believed in and practiced those techniques. "Tomorrow" I may not feel that way, but that is how I feel today. (Thanks for letting me vent some of my anger.)
  18. I posted this in the Bruins forum but I was really impressed with the showing at the Bruins Sabres game last night. If anyone missed it they missed a great game and great crowd. I wanted to first wish my condolences to all Bruins fans and their families impacted by the cowardly bombings at the Boston Marathon. Last night was a fantastic testament to a city, its residents, and hockey fans alike. The fans singing the National Anthem was fantastic and something I will remember for a long time. The crowd recognizing the first responders, those who participated in the marathon and the ovations were incredible. Finally, props to both the Sabres and Bruins. They showed why hockey and hockey fans are the greatest in all sports. The two teams saluted the crowd in unison at Center Ice then proceeded to try and kill each other for 60 minutes plus overtime before a shootout ended the game. Last night showed how truly great a city Boston is and the great fans in Boston. I will remember that for a long time. I taped the game for my 11 year old son to watch as an example of the great sport of hockey, the strength and perseverance of its fans. Last night Boston showed the world they are Boston Strong!
  19. So after 15 plus year Daily News Live ended yesterday? now it is has become Philly Sports Talk starting Monday, anyone know why?
  20. Not what you do to try to get pregnant but trying to get an extra attacker to try to tie a game in the last minute or two. Since I can remember, the "smart" move to do when you're down a goal or two with a minute or two to play, was to pull the goalie in favor of an extra player to help score a goal. I just accepted that all coaches and experts knew what they were doing and never thought twice about it. After thinking hard about it, I don't believe any coach in his right mind should remove his last line of defense to give him a minimal advantage on offense. Let's look at the pros and cons. Pros: 1. You have one more skater than the other team. 2. There is no 2...that's it. Cons: 1. You leave the goal wide open for an easy shot from any angle. 2. You add more congestion and confusion to the offensive zone making it more difficult to make a play. 3. Your defense still has to be "defensive" to prevent the opposing team from getting a good chance to shoot. 4. The opposing team doesn't have to think too hard about scoring after they hit the redline...they can just fire at the net. Really, how often do you score a goal when you pull the goalie? How many times are you scored on when you pull the goalie? How many goals are scored during 5 on 5 gameplay compared to how many goals are scored by a team having 6 skaters to 5 skaters? I'd be willing to bet the amount of goals scored against is 10 times (or more) more than the goals scored for during a 6 on 5. I'd also bet that more goals are scored on 5 on 5 than are scored 6 on 5. So why pull the goalie?!?!?! This is my proposal. Keep the goalie in net. Send out 4 forwards and one offensive, PP QB type defenseman to run the point. Put one big, strong forward in front of the goalie, place another big, strong forward to the side of the goalie, put one skill forward at each circle and your defenseman at the point. The only focus should be offense offense offense. The only defense you play is strictly to get the puck back to go on offense. The defensman pinches every chance he gets and the forwards do not rotate back unless to chase down a player going the other way. If a player does break down the ice, he's still forced to take it all the way and make a good move to score because YOU HAVE A GOALIE IN THE NET! If the opposing team scores, at least you did everything you could. On a healthy flyers team, I would put simmonds in front of the goalie, hartnell to the side of the goalie, briere and giroux at the top of the circles, and timonen at the point.
  21. So here in NM we have vast knowledge on many topics, including, but not limitied to, successfully driving drunk while being a prominent public official, beating up your wife and girlfriend (at the same time), how to live turn mud into adequate dwellings, pushing elderly persons down escalators, and of course sodomizing ugly armored mamals. What we don't have a lot of knowledge about is ice hockey. So here is my dilemma. I am now, have been, and will forever be, a marginal hockey player. We refer to it as Beginner/intermediate at the local barn. In my quest for hockey knowledge I have learned that skates should be a size, size and a half, smaller than your shoe size. I was plodding around on a pair of CCM 91/2 halfs, looking like a cross between a drunk scott hartnell and riley cote after his nightly beating. The guy at the pro-shop (i use that term lightly) suggested I try a size 9. So we found a pair of CCM u+4 and tried those on. They fit but I didn't buy. Intead I went online and found a pair of CCM u+02 and bought those. to get to the point, I had them sharpened and went on this ice. As I have already mentioned, I am not the most gracefeul of skaters but I do okay. Normally stopping is not a huge deal for me. However, in these new skates, when I try to stop the blades chops across the ice. Have any of you experienced this and what exactly might be casuing it (other than me sucking)?
  22. So I built a new computer about 6 months ago, it was working fine. The fan on the CPU was really loud and I wanted to upgrade my graphics card as the other was from my old computer. I installed the new fan and the new card, and am no longer getting any video input to my monitor. I have determined it's not a power issue but my new card's fan will not even turn on. I kept it on for about 10 minutes and then turned it off. The card did get warmer so something is going on there. I put the old card back in to see if it was DoA and the old card will no longer work either. I've been working on possible solutions for about 4 hours now and am fed up with the damn thing. Any ideas out there?
  23. [Hidden Content] would rather have the fyers get him then knuble
  24. Hey fellas, just wanted to drop in, say hello and CAN WE GET SOME HOCKEY PLEASE?? I've been here less since starting a new position at work, but just wanted to say we'll have a new Flyers fan entering the world 12/26, having my first child, a boy. I was contemplating the name "Giroux", but the wife has voted a strict no.
  25. [Hidden Content] Sidney Crosby was at the Justin Bieber concert in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. Again (in case you missed it), Sidney Crosby was at the Justin Bieber concert in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. Some of the NHL players have been keeping up on their skills overseas. Some have been seeing concussion doctors in Atlanta (ugh). And last night, Sidney Crosby was at the Justin Bieber concert in PittsburghRead more: [Hidden Content] Watch sports videos you won't find anywhere else Priceless.....absolutely priceless!
