Either it's time to blow the D up... or the Chief has lost the room

Recommended Posts

Zach is also the reason they're shorthanded so much which is really the reason they lose typically.

The D sucks so strip Guroux of the captaincy? Especially hen the outlet works best when he goes back an gets it?

Early in the season I was on board for stripping G, but he has accepted and embraced the role and turned his and the team's season around. Ultimately lets face it: He ain't the defense's problem.

Matt Carle was a terrible defenseman his first year here. That changed. He "got it". Pronger was a big reason why.

My question is how does anyone propose we get a better D corp? Had a chance this summer but missed the opportunity signing VLC and Streit.

No huge names, but solid guys were out there. Who do you propose we "get" instead and how?

Ok guys, I'm a fairly patient person ( you kinda have to be to be a Philly fan ) but this has gone on way too long. The only time we win is when our O makes up for the D.... if they don't it's no contest.

In any case, I'm willing to blow up the rest of the season and start building a new D. There's been way too many turnovers and zero puck control. Does our D even care who they pass the puck to these days.

Maybe it's time to pull the C and give it to someone else. I think Zac is the only flyer these days that seems to give 100 percent 100 percent of the time. Too bad he lacks the talent of some of our guys who seem to skate around in circles and just watch the game go by them.

I don't know what the answer is but something needs to be done and I'm willing to give up this season to start the process now.

Ok, I think I feel better now... maybe I'll even feel better after I get a drink <g>.

I just posted this on the other thread to jammer, but I'll repeat it here.  They'll make a trade just to give the appearance of trying.   The last thing they want is to look like there's no hope and they certainly don't want to be honest about "it may take a couple years."  It's about ticket and merchandise sales.  Nothing boosts both more than bringing in some big name whether he fits or doesn't.  The Facebook and HFBoards crowd will keep hitting the feeder bar and eat it up.

I am willing to support your motion!

This team is biding its time until the kids (the D-men they drafted last year, plus Ghost) are ready.

 

In a couple years our D will look much different, Lord willing.

 

 

they are at least 3 years away IMO andy...   it iwll be interesting for sure.

      I dont get it... I understand the frustration but when is it good enough to just realize the Team in not good enough?   The defense is barely a NHL quality defense and they are simply terrible.   Terrible...   If this group is already tuning out the Coach they should all be sent packing.   I do not think it is the Coach, I do not think it is the Captain but I do think they simply are not a good Team.  That is on the GM... he is the one that created the revolving door of players.

      it's funny but i was thinking that this team has some of the dumbest group of d-men i have seen in a long time. really! schenn, coburn, mez have such low hockey IQ's that if the wonderlic test existed in hockey, they would put up frank gore - like numbers.

      I said it last night in game chat.  This team is mediocre at best.  Any other Division and this team is not even sniffing the playoffs.  Yes they currently have the 2nd WC spot but they have 5 other teams with a point or two from them.  In the Western Conference they would be 5 points OUT of the WC spot.  This team should have been playing its younger d-men from the start to see what we have.  However, this team continually teases us.  Suckage...win a few games...suckage ..win a few games ..REPE

      Remember How Good Last Year We Played When All Of Over Priced Dmen Went Down? We Were Mostly Playing With Call UPS. Funny Isn't It?

      @pilldoc   Even with the Morin/Hagg/Ghost prospects I still think the Flyers have to find themselves a true #1. And the way teams covet them now, they may well have to deplete themselves at the forward position or draft and develop their own.

      @ruxpin   I've been saying since 2007 that I'd be quite happy with letting the team develop through youth without going after the big FA signing every year. A few years of sucking and reaping the benefits through the draft.    This team could very well have Stamkos/Doughty/Pietrangelo instead of the Briere buyout and Tavares/Duchene/OEL instead of the Pronger caphit. Of course that would take patience though. And people will say look at Edmonton. For one they've had the misfortune of getting sim
