I have zero faith in anyone in the decision making chain in this organization.
I could see nothing of consequence happening or everything happening, I don't feel like this group is going to get whatever they do right. So one or two moves and a coaching change is 3 chances to miss. I almost like their chances throwing things at the wall better than I do the couple of shrewd moves. My impression of the front office is Kramer and Newman making sausage.

As for the kids, I don't think we'll see Frost or Farabee start with the Flyers. Gut feeling is that they're going to get the Giroux treatment via the AHL. Let them dominate down there.
Right. But right now he'd be on your third line. Maybe he becomes Voracek in 2-3 years, and that would be great.

on Ghost today. I really think (like you) he got messed up by coaching but his raw talents are still there. I believe Yeo has the dmen this year and I wonder if he will be able to coach out that bad stuff Ghost picked up. He has the speed, hands and brains to be where he was a just 2 seasons ago. Add to that they he runs to PP#1 and without hi
