Philadelphia Flyers Travis Konecny: Clutch Goal Scorer - Last Word on Hockey
Glad Hakstol moved him to the 3rd line in the Playoffs
He wanted to make the 1st line into more of a muck and grind line with Raffl. For real! Hakstol said something like that to the media.
Yep. He specifically said he wanted it to be "more of a grind line."
Sorry, he's still 2-3 years away.
2-3 years and significant body mass additions away. Takes time to get HEAVY.
That's Ronnie's boy !!!! We are blessed to have a HC and special Teams coaches that are elite and have full support of GM !!
This is confusing. 2-3 years away from what?
"Heavier" was the word.
It's a meme among some of us. That the Flyers are constantly 2-3 years away from being 2-3 years away. Brought by the words of Hakstol saying he wasn't sure if TK was ready yet for more responsibility, and kind of enforced by Hextall first saying the "retooling" wasn't going to take 5 years, and then pivoting to saying, he's only really 2 years into this gig since there was a lot of work to be done in the first several years.
Someone making a sarcastic comment about being 2-3 years away is an unrest fan with the current pace of the Flyers being a competitive team. (Although the Flyers made the playoffs in 2 of the last 4 years, most would not say they were competitive in those series, disregarding both went 6 games.)
It’s making fun of Deadhead. He kept saying earlier in the year Konecny was 2-3 years away from being a top six player.
I was attempting to be more diplomatic about it. Not calling out individual posters or the sort.
He actually used both "heavy" and "grind line."
He's such a charismatic public speaker, isn't he?
Oh haha! Okay. The patience thing is hard because I really can’t remember the Flyers doing the slow and steady approach before Hextall. It was always mortgage the future to win now.
Yeah, a way that makes you want to smack him upside his empty head.
So, does Konecny start on the right side of Giroux - Couturier this fall or does Haktard keep him on the left side on a line with a free agent center and a lame duck Simmonds (contract status-wise)
He could be a poster in the Miscellaneous NHL talk thread right away, heh
Flip a coin. It's Hakstol. He could be sent to the minors and I wouldn't be shocked
****ing love Konecny, so glad he is a Philadelphia Flyer.
Brah he had no choice B
