Bundy and others on the post-gamer were extremely critical of his play...almost amazed me from the Comcast crew. Their bottom line was simple--he needs to figure out the daily style that will build his career. You nailed it. Something has really snapped over the last two years...or the league is learning how to play him. Regardless; it ain't pretty and the coaching staff needs to intervene quickly.
Exactly....as much as I have grown to semi-appreciate the orange the Phillie Phanatic he is part of what turns me off because I go to see the team, not to "be entertained". I only entertainment I want while there is to watch the Flyers whoop everyone else's butts. The Flyers mistakenly believe (in my case) that the product on the ice is just one part of the experience for me, however in reality it is the only thing...all the other stuff is a nice to have but I certainly don't need it and woul
I am thinking Ghost might be a scratch after last night.
He wasn't just bad he was add an adjective-ly bad.
I believe his reliance on his ability to make finesse plays really hurt him last night, some nights you need to make the simple strong play because you don't have "it", he never changed his game to accept the reality that everyone was fighting the puck.
Now would not be the time to stop sending messages via ice time.
Right, so maybe the "elite" talent thing is overblown.
I'd gladly put Couturier up against ROR any day, and between G and V, we have the Tarasenko factor.
They also had Binnington. We have Hart who could be that.
Maybe my frustration is more over enjoyment factor lol. I haven't enjoyed watching the Flyers in YEARS.
