Hakstol experiment over

also don't understand the "sky is falling" stuff going on regarding a team a year ahead of schedule where the plan is clearly working but a still not fully-cooked team has drawn the two-time defending champ still chugging on all cylanders. 

 

Heartless is not a word I'd use here. 

 

It would be a more apt description for NJ and CBJ who, in essence, may have thrown a game because they didn’t have the balls to face the Pens.

 

Maybe not heartless, but gutless.

Speaking of experiment watching Nikita Zadorov play is a great reason why i do not want to give up on Sam Morin at his young age.

 

He is a difference maker for the Avs with his size and long reach.

 

Sabre's could use him on their blueline.

weird.  why didn't that embed.  odd

anyway here is the quote from Hakstol. 

 

"  I don't think it says anything inside our dressing room.  I think we expected it.  It was pretty tough for us to walk out of the rink the other night.  That wasn't us.  In terms of what it says outside our dressing room, I don't know if our guys really care.  I said it coming in, nobody's really giving us a serious chance to win this series.  I don't know if anyone still will.  But I know this: we just got it down to a five-game series and we introduced ourselves into this series tonight."

Bad goaltending on that 5th Penguin goal.

>>Bad goaltending on that 5th Penguin goal.

 

That's only a part of the problem.... I'd say the small part.    G has been invisible .... the Pens are diving at every chance they can and getting the calls.  Some obvious calls that weren't made against the Pens... all that will get a team down if they are not mentally tough and this team isn't.   I think that's a big reflection on the coach.... all these calls are made against us and not against the Pens and he just stands there like a statue.

The Penguins lost 10-1 to Chicago just this October. It didn't make them heartless. It didn't even make them a lesser team than Chicago. It meant they had a horrible night. 

 

No NHL team wants a 7-0 or 10-1 game against. These are men with adult egos.  They had a bad game. In the Flyers case, they may have had a circumstance they legitimately weren't ready for and were out of the game before they could even possibly stabilize. Every mistake was in their net. 

 

That's not heartless. It's a bad game. This is a team that most didn't legitimately expect to make the playoffs. No one on a national level had them even as a wild card. They finished third (keep in mind some of these "experts" had Dallas winning the Cup and many had Montreal finishing second in the Atlantic, so with a grain!).  

 

This heartless team is actually a year ahead of schedule and with utterly crap goaltending.  Management probably didn't expect playoff goaltending to even be relevant this year. 

 

This heartless team overcame an ugly 10 game skid to be within three points of having a better record than all but Washington in the Metropolitan division. And finished third. Heartless team, this bunch. 

 

The heartless captain moved from the position he's played since his rookie year without bitching and went on to have his best season. Heartless is that guy. 

 

Simmonds played the majority of the season hurt without bitching and stuck on the third line. Heartless. 

 

I don't know. I don't think I understand the meaning of heartless being applied to this team. 

 

I also don't understand the "sky is falling" stuff going on regarding a team a year ahead of schedule where the plan is clearly working but a still not fully-cooked team has drawn the two-time defending champ still chugging on all cylanders.

great post rux!!

Hakstol clearly doesn't understand matchups, nor in-game adjustments. I know I half seriously talk about bringing in Keenan, but Darryl Sutter is still unemployed also.

Don't forget Blysma! LOL!

Awesome. More valuable playoff humiliation. All part of the master plan. Everybody gets a ribbon. we all played nice with others. No homework. no name calling. No hitting. We even had a nice nap. And a nice healthy snack I'm sure. Whoever thinks making the playoffs benefits this team going forward is an idiot.

Well look at it this way the Flyers aren't the first team to be eliminated from the playoffs, that title belongs to the two time Stanley Cup champions, Los Angeles Kings who scored a grand total of 3 goals in their series and got eliminated by an expansion team who beat them 4 straight, talk about playoff humiliation! Ask the majority of Flyers fans if they thought the Flyers would make the playoffs this year the answer would be no. They drew the defending Stanley Cup champs, our arch-rivals, the Pens who we have owned since we both came into the league in 1967 but haven't since they drafted Sydney Crosby. Let's keep things in perspective, if we had Marc Andre Fleury type goaltending  (I can't believe I typed that about an ex-Pen) instead of Elliot-type goaltending then the rest of the Flyers would have played with more confidence and the series would have been different, but the Flyers didn't so **** happens. Despite what you think, down the road this experience will be beneficial to the young Flyers.

I think any experience can't hurt that's for sure.... Unless of course you don't know how to shake things off and move on and learn from the experience (the good and the bad)

      Hak should have pulled Elliott after it was 3-0.   3 goals on 10 shots is all you need to see.   Wake the team up.   Maybe Hak was the one sleep.

      How exactly then did it hurt them?    Would we have seen first round pick Nolan Patrick as the starting center if not for these playoffs? We may have thought that our goaltending, for the most part, was seemingly adequate throughout the season, but the playoffs displayed how really horrible it is. Playing against a mature team like the Penguins shows the inexperience of the majority of the Flyers roster,  how our defense is too small and not strong enough.  It shows how weak our 3rd and 4th lines really are. These last few games have shown the lack of creativity and poor execution of the PP.   Yeah, playing against the Stanley Cup Champs is painful to watch but it also makes really clear what must change moving forward.

      I'm not sure what people thought Hakstol was supposed to skate last night.   Our bottom 6 is weak and we lost our first line center.    An already bad matchup became worse.   I would not have had Jake on the top line.   I would have had TK so there was someone who would shoot.    But it wouldn't really have changed much because...   NONE OF THEM CAN PLAY GOAL.     This is David against Goliath.   I'm going to repeat what I said earlier:   It's a team a year ahead of schedule with no goalie.   What's more to the point is that it's a team that made it a year ahead of schedule at least in part because a couple other teams came back to them (NYR, Florida, Detroit, Montreal, Ottawa).      Of course the playoffs are valuable.   In several ways.   For the players, they get a taste of what it takes and a realization they're not there yet.    It'll take all in.      For the coach, hopefully he'll learn how NOT to do it.    For management, you need a damn goalie.   You need a complete team.    The latter I think they know.  You just cannot do that all at once.  It's coming.   And they have to really strongly consider whether they have the right coach.      I think he gets next year yet.   But if they go into the playoffs next year and see similar results (of things Hak can control.  Goalie isn't really fair when he has his choice between chicken dung, pig slime, and horseshit) then they let him go.   But if they don't make the playoffs this year we push all these things back.  NEXT year he and the team would have gotten the "first year" mulligan and the following year to proof it.      So, of course there's benefit.     And I really don't know what the hell all the bridge jumpers were expecting.   We have a team finally waking from a coma and you're all hand-wringing and jumping ship because the patient can't run a marathon before going through some therapy.   If you're leaving just as there's good things coming, that's fine.  That's your prerogative (it's also my prerogative to think you're an idiot).   But find another team and stay away then.    Maybe Vancouver.   Try Vancouver.   You can have a pissy party and burn a bus.

      So, this Mensa member watches last game and says to himself, "Patrick needs to be demoted and Sanheim needs to sit."    Brelic, there are no words.   The very last things that needed to be changed and that's where this dipshit goes.  It's unbelievable.
