Flyers Round Robin Schedule (Game Threads) - August 2020

@OccamsRazor

Gotta give Moose some work 

 

He beat the Caps twice this year, since the games are so far apart you don't HAVE to give him some work but i understand giving him a game.

 

Practice can only do so much to shake off some rust and i would be ok with Elliott getting the nod vs the Caps and saving Hart for the Bolts.

 

Flyers have fared well vs the Caps (Elliott stopped 25 of 27 shots last time they played) not so much vs the Bolts.

 

I just want to keep this winning streak going if you can even call it a streak yet.

You Canucks are so superstitious. 

 

I will take the blame if they fail.

 

I will shoulder the burden for you.

 

Normally I would be like Trump and deny it happened but you i will make an exception...

I guess we'll see Elliott vs Caps thursday and go back to Hart vs the Bolts.
 
 
 

Was there some indication this would happen?

 

I was kinda hoping Hart would be the guy through the playoffs

AV said he would get them both in.

 

So I'm guessing he goes Elliott vs Washington and Hart again vs Bolts.

 

But I haven't seen anything official yet.

Trying to be a team innit. I'm ok with it, being a team. You never know if you'll need Moose. You might have a better chance with him when it happens if he's felt that he's part of a team.

Im all for team. However, teams with a legit number one arent very worried about hurting the feelings of the backup. This is the playoffs.  The best guys need to be out there every night. Elliott is a veteran, im pretty sure he knows that. If his play is going to be affected by whether or not he perceives he is part of the team, then I am less enthused for the teams chance of success

I don't mind seeing Elliott get a chance to loosen up the scar tissue. Hoping for a LONG short season here where his play might actually be needed occasionally. Or as Squirrely Dan would say "allegedly"...….

See i just don't agree with this....no matter what if he has to come in say in the first round next week or something the dude is going to be still cold....no matter that is what backup goaltenders do...come in cold thinking anything less is not being honest.

 

 

Hey i get letting him play but let's lie to yourself on why we are doing so. If he plays next week he will be completely cold...just because he played last thursday doesn't prevent that from happening a week later.

On the one hand, this round robin theoretically is not as pressing as a playoff series. Therefore, tinkering with line ups, giving guys a chance to play etc. , is reasonable (I guess). The worst you can do is 4th, which is where you started off

 

I just don't buy this logic. I think the intensity should be maxed out at all times. Don't take it easy or allow for lax attitude. We all know how playoff hockey goes, and settling for a spot, as opposed to taking control of your destiny, can bite you in the ass. The team that just beat up on Boston should be the team until you are forced to make a change.

I agree and in this case i would only go with adding Farabee in Raffl's place due to injury that is all.

 

Yes this technically isn't the playoff yet but i would be striving for the top seed.

Looks like Farabee Line 3, JVR rotating with Bunnaman on Line 4.

While I think JVR needs to pick up his play a bit, he is a complimentary player. He's never been one to carry the puck and start the offense himself. Sticking him with Grant and then expecting him to do... something is a bit counterintuitive. I think, for example, you'd see more offense out of JVR with Frost in, but they don't seem inclined to give him a go. He'd be better served if you could get him on a line with Jake in the absence of a puck carrying center.

 

Giroux - Couturier - NAK

Farabee - Hayes - Konecny

JVR - Laughton - Voracek

Bunnaman - Grant - Pitlick

 

I don't think NAK is a first-liner, but with two top-tier forwards, he wouldn't have to be. This makes the third line more dangerous, as well, with Laughton and Voracek. Farabee did about as well as Laughton with Hayes-Konecny from a metric standpoint, though the actual GF/GA numbers were better with Laughton.

So if they beat the Caps they have secured no less than the 2nd seed I think.

Correct, if they win in regulation. It also ensures that they can't meet Tampa until the ECF, as they will be 1/2 in some order.

In regards to Elliot starting, I think AV wants him to psychologically and tactically of been exposed a game as a backup to have him, back up to speed in a "real" game(no preseason games available), as AV has the luxury of doing, as he might bring in Friedman and others in one of the remaining games so that, they at least "played" a real game before throwing them out to the wolves per se...psychologically and physically.

 

It's like trying out your spare tire before the long road trip, you know the thing can hold air and be drive-able if it comes to it.

What the hell is Bunnaman doing in the line up?

 

Did we time warp back to the preseason?

this is not the time to be Playing mad scientist with the line up. They should stay and hungry and desperate

 

Maybe AV is trying to knock the coaching rust off. I think he's being stupid

      I’m as a big a Flyers fan as they come but I’m generally pretty pessimistic about the team based on their track record for breaking my heart with either running into a buzzsaw (Oilers, Pens, Hawks, or Wings) or making breathtakingly bad screw ups and allowing soft goals at the worst possible times.   There is something VERY different about this team and I have confidence in them that I literally never had in them before in the 36 years I have followed the Flyers.  If we don’t win it th

      Just finished the game thanks to an excellent stream   As I said all along, starting Elliott was a stroke of genius. He has the Caps number. Plus it keeps him fresh and ready, without any rust. You never know when you might need him   My faith in Laughton and NAK has paid off. As I have been saying for months now, they are valuable assets and will be a major factor for this team. I love those guys   I got nothing else, this is probably my best post ever

      Nothing like watching hockey in the Dog days of August down south...     ...waking up at 6 am and it's 80 degrees and with 77% humidity...getting ready for game day.

      Nice win by a Flyers.   Flyers are now no lower than #2 seed.  If they beat TB they get #1 seed, lose and they are #2.   Hayes played a great game....

      Unbelievable. Probably one of his best as a pro to be honest. I've not seen a player buy time like that in awhile. Very impressive.   More importantly, that line is buzzing and a real handful for three opposition.    TB will be a real test. They are playing very stingy and can be dangerous.

      Only thing I was NOT surprised by.   Hi Everyone! Good to be back!! GO FLYERS! Unreal Round Robin!   Hart is the REAL DEAL. Verdict is in. I'll never doubt this kid again. And our depth is suddenly REALLY impressive.   So cool.   (Hope you all are healthy and safe during these unprecedented times....hang in there fellow humans!)
