I think Chris Vandevelde is a good 4th liner/PK guy but I am not sure why they are not flipping Vandevelde and Leier. Leier has appeared to have more offensive upside and speed than Vandevelde in his small sampling. If you put him on the same line as Jake and Belly you would increase the overall speed dramatically.

 

 

Well with the injury bug that is currently following them it might happen anyway.................

The curious case of Evgeny Medvedev. Where is he? Is he not adjusting well to North America? Is there family issues? (I know his family stayed in Russia) Does he hate Philadelphia? Does he hate cheese wiz, soft pretzels, the Mummers, wooder ice?

I think he's at Bryz's place in Haddonfield doing bong hits and talking about bears

 

Med: What's on your mind, Bryz?

Bryz: Well, Evgeni. Have you ever thought much about the universe?

he has been much better, but it was not hard to improve upon how poorly he was playing...gone appears to be the" turnstile to the goal "technique that he was using a for a couple of weeks.  

 

having familiarity with his partner is showing ,  I like that he stood up for himself when Chris Neil was giving him the business, Neil is the last of a dying breed and Manning hung in there pretty well.

Howdy:

 

This is another test case of the big problem--are we discovering the need to rebuild our forwards was more pressing than the D?  I suspect Hakstol can juggle lines from now until Emily Ratajowski is dumb enough to get a breast reduction but five-on-five scoring for this team was bad last year and really awful this stanza.  We are approaching 25-30 "cases."  That approaches n for bell curve.  If we ain't producing now....it's unlikely to happen with this bunch.  I see a fire sale at trade deadline.

Tavares scores 91 goals and adds a helper. Isles 92-1

So, you're saying the Isles are only going to score on every 2nd shot on goal they get?

Exactly, I'm not saying our goalies are completely useless. On the contrary. Anyway, yeah, should be a close one.

My theory on Medvedev is that the Flyers are pissed at him because they think he faked/exaggerated his injury

Or that he didn't tell them about it. I remember seeing something where Hextall said he was "looking into" why Medvedev had been listed as a healthy scratch, when it turned out he was injured.

I personally feel that the Flyers would be better going forward.  Their standings aren't truly representative of what they are capable of.  When they announced the series of hall-of-fame event, I had a sinking feeling they won't play better until all this hoopla is done.  Just a gut feeling.  Go Flyers.

Halak is not a very good goalie. You get good shots on him, and you'll beat him.

 

Just like that

Did Giroux and Ghost not get the tanking email...they are f**king it up!

We're going to have to get FC to go down and take out some knee caps!!!!

Nevermind FC there is the Flyers we know. I didn't see what caused the turnover the other way but is there another team worse in the NHL with a minute to go in a period or the game? Flyer have to lead the NHL when it comes to giving up a goal with under 2 minutes to go....jeeeze!!!

      For every Detroit, there are ten Chicagos. Most teams have to suck for a while before they become contenders. The Flyers have been putting off that suckage by way of ill-advised trades and bandaid solutions for too long. It's time to take it like a champ.

      I'd say that was very captain-like. Teammates remember that.
