    BTW here's a game where Voracek was a monster with basically no help from his center.

    Yep, you can tell the boys are really over-thinking things and gripping the sticks way too tight.

    Both of Vrana's goals tonight came on plays that started when we had puck possession in the offensive zone. Poor communication, lack of confidence, and consistently being behind the play instead of anticipating where it's going are all things that have been regular fare on the Flyers for too long. They try, but there isn't much team cohesiveness, and when mistakes are made, they usually end up in our goal.

    When we get a legitimate NHL head coach, and first rate assistants who are chosen by the head coach, not the GM, things should start turning around.

    It will probably take some time, though. Training camp, a full pre-season and about 20 games into the Fall of 2019 should tell us where we are. Hopefully, we'll get some draft luck this Summer. And, hopefully, Fletch will use that big Harvard graduated brain of his to make some moves that will help long-term.

    They also might want to hire the best available sports psychologist to work with the guys. They could use it.

    Probably at himself for not signing Hextall's last offer at an extension.

    No reason to hold onto players like Voracek and Simmonds and just hope everything turns around next season because they have new coaching. Sell Sell Sell and go with another rebuild! Plenty of young talent and a good prospect pipeline to operate with. The Flyers rebuild didn't workout this time, nothing wrong with trying again.

    As frustrating as it is to watch voracek, it’s extremely painful to watch jvr. Every shift he stands completely upright and doesn’t move his legs whatsoever in the defensive zone. When he is in the offensive zone, it’s like he has cement feet. It’s pathetic. I’m so tired of this team.

    There's no point to watch the rest of the season. Just go do something productive with your life and occasionally check around trade deadlines for some hopefully good news.

    The trip through Canada at the end of Hakstol’s reign was pretty bleeping bad.

    That said, the notion that this team’s issue is coaching is laughable.

    Being a Flyers broadcaster is one of the toughest jobs in sports.

    JVR looked bad with Varone and Weise, that’s shocking.

    I think JoJo pointed out astutely that everyone wants a pure goal scorer yet no one is happy with JVR and certainly not Simmonds. Simmonds is still on pace for 25+ goals. The Venn diagram covering the people complaining about all of the above is pretty big.

    JVR has shown he can be an efficient scorer and even positive possession player with any reasonable linemates. REASONABLE

    I think I speak for everyone here if our pick isn’t top 2 after this disaster of a season we’re going to need a legit therapist hired for the Flyers forum so everyone doesn’t drink themselves to death.

    I'm sorry but was it necessary to play McKenna here? Is Fletcher thinking McKenna is an upgrade to say Lyon? Because Lyon is way better, McKenna should be on the Phantoms.

    Where's the fanboy love for JVR now? Guy is a terrible addition to this team. Our division is not the right one for his style of play. Getting a high scoring forward from the Laffs isn't too different from getting the best defenseman on the Islanders...ahem AMac.
