Game 6: Stars at Flyers; 10/19/19 @ 7

Recommended Posts

Greetings:

 

We are mild favorites against a very weak Dallas team that's giving up 1.5 goals more on average than it's scoring.

You'd hope the Flyers are happy to be home and have licked their wounds from the Western trek.  On the other hand, Dallas is due for a bounce.  Maybe the Flyers open fast and score first to avoid reversion to last year's MO. 

 

Connor Bunnaman is heading to Lehigh.  Whether that leads to Nolan's reappearance or another call up remains to be seen.

Under a best case, we rock these folks.  But I don't have much faith in the O and B these days.  If we do lose 9-1, the board will banish you for casting an evil spell.

Well they have loaned the Bunnyman back to LV so that means either Patrick is ready or they plan on calling up a center maybe to get Raffl out the center spot.

 

Raffl is solid on the wing not so much at center.

 

So maybe we see Rubtsov or Vorobyev get a callup.

Does not sound like there is a callup coming for tomorrow. Stewart will play, per AV. Hart starts in goal.

Today was a positive step for Nolan Patrick, per Vigneault. He put in his longest skating session (about 30 mins) so far.

I fear this Patrick thing.  I hope this isn't Forsberg II. Don't misunderstand me--I wish him well.  But I wonder if a visiting locker room soap will concuss him? OK...maybe a poorly fit jockstrap?

Yeah I'm afraid this isn't going to turn out well for the 2nd overall pick who fell into their laps.

 

Just the Flyers luck...

Boy...the bottom six seems a tad strange.  JVR will start hitting the net but the other five....yikes.

At this point I think I've seen enough of Pitlick to know that I'd rather one of our young guys skate in his place.

He's an NHLer but I don't think he's more skilled than any of our top 6 prospects in LHV. I would like to see  Rubstov or Vorobyev level skill on the 3rd line & push Pitlick down the line-up where his energy will be of more value. That makes Stewart the odd man out until one of those guys needs a break, or we need some extra size and "heaviness".

I am hoping Vorobyev can figure out the compete level necessary  to stick in the bigs,  I like his skill, vision and size alot.

Here is a take on the bottom six.  It isn't pretty:

Agreed, this is fixing nothing with the bottom six.  If Voracek wasn't getting it done with Pitlick and Laughton, how the hell is JVR? 

Stewart needs to be gone.  This is worse than Lehtera or Weise to me because Fletcher has openly talked about just liking the guy as a person.

 

They have to make moves that will put Laughton and Pitlick on the 4th with Raffl where they belong.  If Echo or Twarks can outplay Pitlick, then so be it.  He'll be a good 13th or 14th.  

 

I also feel like it's time to get a night or two or Morin over Braun and NO, not just for the McDavid goal--for all of you defending him for not realizing who he was defending against. He had a really bad trip.  If there was no one waiting in the wings, then that's one thing but Morin's there and Myers is looming.  Braun and Hagg should both be on short leashes. 

 

Cap issues, roster size and waiver exemption of course make it interesting.

They're straight up not playing their best options in the bottom 6.

I can see them sitting Hagg for Morin but not Braun.

 

I would be fine giving Robert the night off and letting Sam bang some bodies.

This game makes me nervous. Dallas has already lost 4 straight.

 

Flyers please don't be that team to help the Stars out of their turmoil.

 

Please don't be the team that you have shown in the past. Please. Time to turn the page.

 

And it starts with putting away the teams you're suppose to beat. Show me or us that you have changed.

 

Don't tell me. SHOW ME!

@brelic

 

So Mike Hoffman is on the block since the word is he won't resign in Florida.

 

So would you trade Jake for him?

 

Or what about JVR for him asking for a friend.

 

I am asking you because if I remember right you suggested this past offseason....I think it was you and I said no.

 

But i have changed my stance now.

 

So i wonder would Florida take one of those two because they are under contract for a few years and have no NTC or no NMC.

Interesting. 
 

I’d be tempted to ask about Hoffman, and a swap would depend on a few things. What’s going the other way? And how much for how long does Hoffman want? He’s 29, so not really interested in giving him a 7 year deal. If he wants 5 or less, I’d swap Voracek for him. 
 

If we actually want to start changing the core, this is one way to do it.

 

I’d keep JVR.

Yeah, I’d be surprised if we see him before US Thanksgiving. Probably not before Christmas. 
 

Patrick hasn’t played a hockey game in almost 7 months. His practices are short, slow, and without contact. There’s a long way for him to go still.

Yes I guess it would depend on what went with it or came back.

 

But I would honestly expect something back with him unless he signed a new contract before the trade.

 

The great thing about Hoffman is he can play all 3 forward positions.

 

I honestly wouldn't mind trading JVR for him first.

 

28 Claude Giroux - 14 Sean Couturier - 11 Travis Konecny
 

68 Mike Hoffman - 13 Kevin Hayes - 93 Jakub Voracek
 

49 Joel Farabee - 24 Misha Vorobyev - 23 Oskar Lindbom

 

12 Michael Raffl - 21 Scott Laughton - 18 Tyler Pitlick

 

This wouldn't be a bad line up.

I think the Flyers are pretty ticked after the last game.  

 

Should hopefully be healthier too.

      What they need is REAL checking and quit all this goddamn weakass stick checking sh it... see Oskar's weak ass stick check on the Perry goal if you don't know what i mean. Get back to Flyer hockey and that doesn't mean fighting.   It means being physical and finishing checks taking the body and fighting for pucks.   Please see the Blues vs Bruins Stanley Cup series.   The Blues were banging bodies and out physical played the Bruins and that is saying something becau

      Easy for a goalie with no "book" on him to come in and look strong. Andrew Hammond comes to mind top of head...   Teams have identified weaknesses and it's now on the goalie and coach to adapt to them.   But the addition of two vets to shore up the blue line and defensively responsible Hayes at 2C was supposed to mitigate that.   If you give up 15 shots in a game you're not supposed to see 3 goals against, sophomore slump or no sophomore slump...

      Another slow start, and you want us to calm down. This is what has killed this team's playoff chances every time they have struggled or failed to make them in recent history. Playing "catch-up" (again) isn't the way to go about the season.
