In fairness they are missing their 1C, 2C, top pair D, top six winger...

 

 

 

Well in fairness, Buffalo is essentially missing most of that as well...they just traded them for future assets. Brilliant! :yes:

In fairness they are missing their 1C, 2C, top pair D, top six winger...   But the contrast with Buffalo is striking as you watch a young team actually playing the game of hockey effectively and in position to tie(!) The Flyers in the standings...   It's two teams going in different directions, and the Flyers aren't going the right way.

Yeah, this gang needs to play from the opening face off. They seem to keep their warmups for the first period.  That said, I wonder if they have the talent to compete.  The giveaways and high scoring chances are probably a function of many things...training among them.  But the poor power play and high scoring chances to opponents tell me the mess is deeper.     Howie

and at this rate that 2nd rounder we gave them in that Risto deal will end up being a solid pick too.

True, with the obvious caveat that Buffalo planned to be in this position.

 

And they're the ones moving in the better direction.

Meltzer on Mondee: The Flyers have placed Wade Allison on IR.

Allison not on the bench to start the 3rd period……..

didnt even make it to Sundee

Allison has got to be the most injury prone player I have ever seen. It’s been constant injuries for three years . It’s too bad since he has size and a great shot, he would have been a great asset on the PP.  Giroux is having a great year his value is very high, we better trade him immediately, I wouldn’t wait until the deadline, with our luck he will suffer a season ending injury before we can trade him.

They're being brought back way too fast.  This (dis)organization is a clown show from top to bottom.

that's a legit excuse for losing. It means nothing to players who should be working hard and smart but instead keep making the same stupid mistakes. The terrible passing, the ridiculous flips to center at the slightest bit of pressure on the puck (caused by even more ridiculous gaps btw the fwds and the D) ...the dumb shot selection the puck-staring on D, letting guys waltz into your zone etc etc etc etc etc

 

edit: btw I'm not disputing your point - of course any team losing their top centers, all 4 of them in the Flyers case will struggle to win games. But it shouldn't look like this.

Saw this **** show in person. My son’s favorite player is Giroux so I guess it’s fitting we got to see him score twice it what was likely his last visit to Buffalo wearing the Orange & Black.

 They are a great example of how NOT to build a professional hockey team.  Really have been for decades....

ouch 😂

I like JSQ.  But that's unfair. They're bringing people back too soon, and it's bulls**t.  They are almost criminally destroying kids.  Even Hayes had his prognosis reduced.   

 

Probably somewhere along the lines of what Lehner was talking about, but it wasn't just AV.

 

What we're watching is utter bulls**t.

That's the sad reality.  Buffalo is in a traditional rebuilding mode, and they are going about it the right way.  They have a future goalie stud in Luukkonen (that kid will be a star in this league), and a good, solid group of young players, like Tuch, Thompson, Cozens, Krebs, Jack Quinn, Asplund, Jokiharju, and Dahlin.  Some of them will be phenomenal players. Give this team 2-3 years and time to develop, and with a good coach and patience, the Sabres *can* be scary good.  

 

The Flyers' current state is sad and depressing, because there is no direction.  I wouldn't mind for them to suck for several years if there was a plan.  But there isn't one.  Its a disaster.  Demolish it, get rid of rubble, grade the site, and start building from scratch.  There won't be a better opportunity for than than now. 

They've been sucking for several years....at least ten, and rebuilding for several years.  I've been waiting at least a decade for the rebuild to end. Every season it's the same.  Wait a couple more seasons. That's all it'll take. Then. Oh, we just need a couple of more seasons. I'm now over 50 and wondering if I'll ever see the end of it. I feel too much like Charlie Brown falling for Lucy's line of crap that she'll really hold the football this time. Really. She will. Well I ain't buying it with this team anymore. What's the plan, Phil!?
