It’s gotten so bad, even I’m going to post.     I read this thread with a lot of interest and agree with the assessment that the team is clearly worse than it was when Fletcher took over.  To the Wild fans that warned us, what can I say other than that he’s the old boy network running, imagination-less, plausible Buddhist solution proffering organization wrecker he was in MN. I cannot imagine him not being fired at the end of the season.  He’s only still here because this mess is of such

I will never understand the hate this guy got. He was a solid 2 way player who averaged 30 goals a season for the Flyers. He scored more goals in one season than any other Flyer over the last 15 years. He was taken 11th overall, not 1st. You'd probably have to go all the way to 2nd overall (Eric Staal) to get a better player taken before him. And you can probably count on one finger the amount of better players taken 11th overall (Iginla)   Now if you want to knock him for his frosted

We all know if Philly drafted Bedard he'd get decapitated on a Greyhound bus by a mentally unstable guy less than a year into his NHL career.

Or he'd simply be Nolan Patrick 2.0.

Steve Coates was all but calling out Yandle last night.  He stopped himself short of saying he out-right sucked and has.   As much as I want to blame the players - and they aren't faultless - but it's on Yeo and Chuck as pointed out countless times.  

 

Do you think it's possible that when Chuck signed Yandle there was a "gentlemen's handshake" that he must remain in the lineup until he breaks the record regardless of his play?   That seems like the only reason that he is still on the ice.   I mean, he's worse than AMac ever was.

Ha.  That's true but they aren't going to get high enough to get a player that will make a difference in the next 2-3 years.   Prospects are a nice distraction though.

It’s so bad, I’d almost rather watch Squid Games on a continous loop, than this Comcast Crap.  I won’t be committed to this team again, until Comcast either cleans house of Scott, Holmgren and others.. or sells the team to competent ownership that has a clue and desire to be truly competitive.

She can come to my house anytime.   Al would have to wait for an invite.

I guess nothing had to be said because Yandle was brought in to help the PP, basically guaranteed him a roster spot. But I wonder how long Yeo plays him after he breaks the record. What is it 4 more games? Something like that.

 

edit: man you are so right he is like...unbelievably bad. Last night 2 turnovers with Jones pulled, 2 on the same shift. He may not be the Flyers biggest problem but he's certainly one of them.

The only thing that sucks the most is they are about to finish very low in the standing maybe for the next two years and don't have a 2nd round pick in either draft coming up this year or next.

 

So yeah that should get the natives and little angry....that in my mind is what sucks they are terrible and another team is going to reap the benefits on two of those picks ah the travesty of it all.

 

And i applaud all the the fans who actually get in front of the TV to watch this slop...carry on.

Possible? It's the only reason there could possibly be. Well that and the team is run by morons.

 

Apologies to all the good morons.

Well at least Hayes isn't the worst player in the NHL according to Corsi...though he probably makes the same as everyone else on this list put together. 

Only 4 more years...I'm sure he'll be #1 before then.

Hayes leads the league in exD/60 (Expected Donuts Per 60 Minutes).

 

But let's wait a couple more years before deciding whether it was a good or bad contract.

They call that the Kessel Award.

Thats all there is to look forward to. Dreaming of a rebuild. BITFU.

I accidentally took my game thread down for last night and didn't realize it until this morning.  Nobody put one up in its place.  That's an interesting comment on where we stand with the organization.

 

BTW, I was driving home from work when we were up 3-2.  My first thought turning on Sirius was that we'd find a way to lose. Sure enough, two minutes after turning on the radio...it's tied.  I knew we would lose once it went to the SO.  

 

Coates is a bit bombastic but knows his stuff.  He was calling out the defensive lineups late in the game, saying that he would double shift the top pairing. He was pissed our 2nd and 3rd were out against the Isles' top line.
