Sure.  Also, I don't think I'm going to win the lottery with Homer and his gang around.  Which is to say, dislike them all you want, the NHL is now built so you can't really do much other than move chairs around.   Let's play this game:  you are in charge.  Any reasonable value for value trade you propose will be accepted by the other GM.  What would you do?  What could you possibly do that would have more than a 50-50 chance of working out even ok, much less create a season-on-season

Hey, man, thank you.  I REALLY miss Flyers hockey.  I REALLY miss feeling like there was some kind of math behind it all, that a clever plan could accomplish things.  I miss caring about this game minute to minute and day to day.  It was an engrossing thing, endless what-if's.  What-if's that could conceivably happen.   I miss caring.   But you all are awesome.  I've been interacting with a lot of you for what, 20+ years now?  I mean, holy crap.  I'm really glad this site sti

This is exactly where I am.  Minus a daughter.  There's just no pay off.  The NHL decided to establish parity.  Not realizing the only way to do that is to make outcomes random.  No one has an advantage, no one can maintain primacy for more than a year or two, everything churns and muddles. That was the goal.  But people can only put their emotional involvement into random for so long until they are empty and have to walk away.   The Flyers will get their turn.  At some point, the rand

Still too many fans there....STOP GOING FANS!!!!!!! I want to see it completely empty.

 

It all they have left to try to change their plans to fix this...all you have left to SHOW them.

A few weeks ago, flyers scored a goal, and the camera focused in on the guy with the painted face. He was screaming like it was game 7 and they just tied it up. I'm sorry, but I wanted to punch him in the face. He might get paid to show his enthusiasm, but if you're not upset about what's going on, and one goal in a meaningless game during a meaningless season gets you that excited, you're not a fan.

I wish it would be completely empty also, but I think (hope) they got the message already.

Looks like they scratched Mayhew - perhaps some accountability for not getting out for the power play *checks notes* 10 games ago?

 

Hayes says he wants to come back "for the city."

 

"The city" doesn't even know who he is and cares less.

A goal left to achieve:

 

9th seed is still on the table.

 

That will make a nice banner for the rafters...

They'll probably get 9th place, too, but only because it would serve them better to go the other direction.

Why saddle Gaudreau with Hayes?

 

(They're not getting Gaudreau (e3))

 

Because i know they are going after him especially after JVR was a failure.

 

And them boys BU guys if Hayes CAN'T bring it now after being given time to get over his brother with his pay check then he never will.

 

And he can follow JVR out the door next...yes i have had maybe a sip...or three.

There is no way they could be shocked right???

 

 

I mean i already know they aren't very bright but damn...

I mean seriously.  As depressing as the flyers are, that's 1000x depressing.

 

And deserved.

 

I mean, they're getting paid huge money and there's no evidence they care.  Why should people care enough to pay through the teeth to watch?

You think it’s bad now, wait until after the trade deadline when it’s a team with all kids and a few remaining vets.

Well at the start of this season I bought tickets for 5 games in Philly and the two in Buffalo. Those were at full price 🤬

 

I have one trip down there left in April and then one trip to see them in Buffalo. If I tried to sell them now, I’d lose my shirt.  So I guess I’m stuck paying premium price to watch the phantoms play the Ducks and Sabres. 
 

On a positive note I’m gonna get a chia pet of a player that doesn’t even play for the Flyers at the Ducks game so I have that going for me.
