Re: Meltzer's tweet about 12 forwards, I wonder why they sent back Goulbourne?

 

12 fowards + 6 defensemen + 2 goalies (Pickard / Elliott) = 20

 

AMac healthy scratch = 21

 

Lyon was sent back. Neuvirth, Raffl, JVR, and Knight on IR.

 

So there are two empty roster spots. 

 

Makes no sense. 

 

And last game, after both Lindblom and Konecny (or was it someone else??) missed time during the game, NAK still only managed 5 minutes of TOI. He had zero shifts in the 2nd period. ZERO.

 

I get that you want to bring a rookie along slowly - but 5, 8, 5, 4 for TOI through 4 games is crazy low, especially when you have injuries up front that cause disruption of your forward group. 

 

BRING ON COACH Q!!!

Greetings:

 

Here is a take on the game;

Hidden Content

    Give reaction or reply to this topic to see the hidden content.

 

Winning the first game of the home-and-home improves odds, but ability to win back-to-back is questionable.  Part of me hopes we build on success.  Another says we do the Keystone Cops thing at WFC and Pickard shows why he's been a journeyman.  I hope Folin is ready to kick some butt.  He may be our new enforcer.

Folin's first couple of games were pretty rough but he is definitely showing a marked improvement. I really like his skate right in and not let the opponent harass his forwards mentality.

Ok, in response to myself, this might be a reason to keep open roster spots...

Also, where is JVR going to slot in when he does return?

 

Not really a fan of breaking up the Lindblom/Patrick/Voracek line, and he won't be replacing G up top.

 

So 3rd line with Weal and Simmer? It could be fine, but does feel like a waste of his talent - or, not a waste, but it seems to be a position that won't maximize his output. Maybe the PP1 time makes up for it.

Maybe so they don't have to make a move when Neuvy is ready.....they will just carry 3 goalies till he is hurt again in a few days.

 

Otherwise not sure what is going on.

 

Leaving a space open so they can make a trade and have that spot open for them.

 

Example as soon as Neuvy is ready trade him for someone 10th round prospect draft in 2009 just to get rid Neuvy.

 

Other wise as i said i have no clue.

 

On the game. It is the first of a 5 game homestand this is a good chance to climb in the standing if they can get a good wining streak going.

 

It hasn't been good for them to start the year at home. It needs to change tonight.

 

They're 2-4-0 with a minus-12 goal differential. They've scored the league's second-fewest home goals per game at 2.33, while allowing the third most at 4.33.

 

Despite the Flyers going 1 for 3 on the power play Monday, Arizona still owns the NHL's top-ranked penalty kill at 90.2 percent. It has surrendered just one man-advantage goal over six road games.

 

Keep an eye on Nolan Patrick and Oskar Lindblom as the youngsters come home with plenty of momentum. Both Patrick (two goals, four assists) and Lindblom (two goals, four assists) put up six points on the four-game road trip. Hey Jake feel free to jump in and do more than turn the damn puck over or kill a cycle!!!

 

Since Oct. 30, Patrick's plus-7 rating is tied for second best in the NHL, behind only the Lightning's Yanni Gourde at plus-8.

 


Go Flyers!!!!!!

Damn Folin I know you are replacing Mcdud but bro you don't have to screen the goalie like he would you have to clear the porch or get the f**k out the way so Pickard can see the damn puck.

 

Terrible.

 

Wasn't much Pickard could do on that one.

 

Would you like the goalie to fight through it sure but he tried he just happened to peek the wrong way and squeak through small opening.

 

C'mon guys let's get these two points and let the home crowd see a good game.

Well there goes the weak goal by Pickard.

 

This goaltending is the death knell for this.

 

Fix the PP and fix PK but till get a guy who can eliminate the Mr. Softee goals they will continue to given away games and points.

 

It has to be so deflating to see that for the team on nightly basis.

I'll go watch YouTube or Netflix for the rest of the night.

 

Later.

 

Sorry @Poulin20 they are crapping the bed for you. You're a better than me no way would invest the time and money to go to see that bullsh it.

It is tough to watch. Very tough.  

 

Why the heck didn't Hak call a time out at some point?  I agree that one of the goals was oft but I would put more blame on Ghost than Pickard.

It's why I couldn't do it no more.

 

It's sad when you are at work and would try and find something else to do even work(I know right) than actually watch this team struggle and struggle.

 

It is time to pull the plug on Hak.

 

Go get Q maybe he can help.

 

This team need to be rebooted.

Well, this was a character win.  Weise's tying goal was beautiful.  I agree with JJ he is having his best season as a Flyer.

      A lot of positives from last night.    - Lindblom and Patrick continue to show real chemistry, and are dangerous every time they're out there. Nice to see Lindblom extend his points streak to 5 games.   - Voracek is an 'event' player. Something always happens when he's on the ice because he has the puck a lot. Sometimes they're good things, sometimes they're bad things - but the good FAR outweighs the bad.    - Laughton was a beast! Tied for 2nd on the team in goals with 6. He had 10 all of last year. Of course, his current 27% SH is not sustainable, but he's found a new level to his game. Smart, tenacious player.   I don't want to talk about the PP and PK because we all know how terrible both are.   But, I will mention Provorov. When he's off, man, he is *off*. He made several terrible plays last night - and the worrying thing is that they aren't plays under pressure. They're just terrible decisions. I don't know what to make of it. Maybe, just maybe, this is the learning curve to him being able to make those in the future - the kind of plays that separate you from run of the mill defensemen.    Work out the bugs now, and when Provorov 2.4b comes out, he will be able to pass cross ice, hyperskate over to the other side, and receive his own pass.

      He’s a journeyman AHL goaltender.  Not much more to figure out.  He will make some great, desperate saves then let in goals that a true NHL goalie would save.  He’s as bipolar as this team.

      I think this would be a good thing and hopefully the kid doesn't get his feelings hurt but this is two fold.   Too help cut down on his heavy minutes he has logged and to give Sanheim and chance to maybe jump start some offense in his game along with giving the PP a boost skill wise i think Travis offense is a tad higher than Ivan's.   But keeping Ivan fresh will go along way towards the end of the season results maybe.   Ivan is playing 26 minutes a night. Cutting his PP time down will get him down to closer to where Ghost is averaging a little over 21 minutes a night and boost Travis from his 16 minutes a night.   If it doesn't work then you could go back to Ivan.   Got to love the way Folin has come around and has played pretty well with Ghost.   Only one assist this season but leads the blueline at +7. He has come a long ways from his rough start.   I have to say i love seeing him gets minutes over turnover prone Mcdud.
