The Canes' speed presents our team with problems. I hope Mr. Talbot isn't too rusty.

Yeah long gone are the days of walking all over this team.

 

Very strange how the shoe is on the other foot the last few years.

 

Sad how a few of the teams that the Flyers use to walk all over like the Panthers, Bolts and Canes always hand the Flyer's their asses now.

 

How do they get back to their winning ways?? Will they ever??

Dear Occ:

 

You are right...I remember going to Panthers' games against the Flyers and gloating over big wins.  Now we get humbled.

 

I keep talking about the DNA.  Has this team been designed for winning in the "New NHL?"  I think not.  And I am really concerned that our prospects aren't what they've been cracked up to be.  

 

Best,

H

So for the Flyers to make the playoffs:

 

 

1. If the Flyers win out and get ten points in their final five games, they get in if two of the following three things happen:

- Columbus collects no more than one point in their final five games

- Montreal collects no more than one point in their final four games

- Carolina collects no points in their final five games

 

 

 

Easy peasy lemon squeezy........

Man I sure hope Oskar gets the dam turnovers out of his system I see his lineup mate Jake must have rubbed off on him.

 

He had more turnovers last game it seemed than all season.

 

Canes will make you pay if they play like that again.

 

So is it good Mrazek or bad Mrazek in goal for them?

 

I hope the latter.

Laughton would have had a clear had Ivan not stopped his stick thinking it was a Canes stick on the first goal....

 

 

...then wow Jake said f**k playing defense comes into the D zone but all he wanted to do was go the other way and peels out before anyone has the puck, then let's the Flyers get outnumbered down low between the dots...

 

 

...and a goal that's alot Jake you piece of sh it...

 

...to bad noone will call the star winger out.

 

I guess he gets a pass because he said the team choked. What the f**k ever his part of the problem. What are the kids supposed to think when they see his sorry ass not wanting to do the small things to ensure they win.

 

Can't wait till he is out of Philly I don't care how may points he scores.

Amazing; he had a 3.3 GAA for us.  In Carolina he has been excellent.  Strange.

The Player Of The Game - Petr Mrazek. Hands down.

Agreed!

 

Talbot wasn't bad.  Our D's quick lapse with 2 goals in a half minute was typical of the season.  Carolina has rebuilt a lot faster than the O and B.  Mrazek....glad for him.  Goalies come to Philly and go to pot.  This guy leaves and looks like Jacques Plante.

Yeah, Talbot wasn't bad but I thought he really should saved that 3rd goal. At first glance it didn't look all that difficult.

I guess Jake didn't want to get suspended again so he has to get obliterated...

Hey Howie!

 

I know it feels like it sometimes, but not sure I agree in this case. They’ve missed the post season 9 straight years. 

 

I will say, however, that their team looks a lot more cohesive than ours. It was not a fun game to watch!

Bre:  Jeepers, that is a long run to go without playoffs.  We are now going seven without a playoff series win.   They had a Cup in 2006.  Our last one was '75....

 

Agreed--they have speed and coherence.  Per earlier post, this game was lost in a 30 second stretch.  We lost one last week in 1:30.  It is "bothersome."  I seem to recall that our rebuild would start with a mobile, tough defense.  OK.  Well, I think we are 25th in the league.  That isn't bothersome, it's downright painful.  I suspect coaching to play 60 mins matters and can be done.  Underlying talent is different. 

 

The Hurricanes and Islanders being ahead of us in the standings is a lot of food for thought.

If nothing else, Morin was -1 with 15 minutes of play.  It didn't look like he embarrassed himself.  Heck, he is only getting paid $700K a year. We may look back and say that was one of Hextall's better moves.

A quick observation:  The number of posts for this game, and the last few for that matter, are fewer than usual.  I think people are politely checking out.  I get it.  This has to be one of the most disappointing seasons in Flyers history.  And I am having a tough time watching games.  That is sad!

Only seems fitting that the Flyers were officially eliminated by Petr Mrazek.

Morin was Homer’s pick. His last draft before being fired.

      I get the theory, but the practice has been something of a "something else" variety.   Voracek is not a consistent 80+-point player. We know this because he's done it twice in his career (not counting the 48-game season). He's far more often a 60+-point player (which is, again, where he is this year). Even taking his career PPG over the course of a season gets him to 68. And his best goal scoring year (23) was six years ago.   His PPG Y2Y as a Flyer: .62 .95 .7

      I like Panarin fine, but more from a "fantasy" point of view than "on the ice" point of view. I'm leery of giving 25-30 goal scoring, 75-80 point 28-year-olds seven/eight year, $10M contracts. Just smacks of paying for past production and, as you note, the "decline" years into the mid-30s.   Also, not sure Panarin is the "want to win" guy we've been talking about around here. I think he is more of your "lifestyle" choice guy and could very easily see him going the Pavel Bure route, end

      Teh Fanatic was speculating on coaching replacements: Quenneville (by a mile) Boudreau (once canned in Minny) Vignault Gordon   I'm all in on Quenneville, but might settle for either of the other two over Gordon.     Maybe for a Danny Markov type? What? Too Soon?     I'd actually be happy with them both starting their pro careers in Allentown. Unless they really blow the doors off, and not in a "Nolan Patrick" or "Mikhail Vorobyev" typ

      Shades of Justin Williams and Brayden Schenn to me.  He produces, but does not "play the right way" (whatever that means).  He should be in line for a nice payday given his stats, but his on ice play suggests he is not good in other areas (which I don't think is a question).  Not being arbitration eligible definitely helps, but I just really wonder if they see him as part of the team for the longer haul.  Would be a shame to see him go.  Love his feistiness.

      One thing I'll always rue is picking Smith over Timonen for captain backinnaday. I thought it was a terrible move then and it hasn't aged well, either.     And that's another one - not reloading the "Jagr year" team and going after Parise/Suter.   Just think for a moment about "winning" that one and where the team would be now.   Six more seasons of Parise and Suter...   My issues with this organization are neatly arranged into volumes.

      Sometimes the best moves are the moves you don't make.   Also, too, that it's often possible to "win the trades" and lose the war.
