Not ambitious enough. Top three.
I believe, since McKenna was picked up on waivers, he may not be demoted to AHL for some period of time/ number of games
Our GM decided to pick him up off waivers when he could have played Lyon. Either way, it was a piss poor job
he wanted someone that woulden't move too fast and injure himself maybe.
Yeah, the idea that it is ONLY coaching is laughable. I am glad no one is saying this and no one did say that about Hak either.
Still often times seen strawman though.
What was the explanation for Gostisbehere getting penalized after the goal reversal?
Appeared to commit the infraction after the offsides.
Don’t know what people expected from JVR. He is exactly what anyone should have known he would be.
Which is a fine complimentary piece used in a scoring role. He. Hasn’t been used properly at all, no clue what our org is doing with him.
I don’t understand the intention behind that clause. Seems pretty stupid
I don't even know what needs to happen to this team for them to wake up.
<10 minutes left in the game and they realize, oh ****, we're down by 3, let's draw up some ****ing plays and score goals. So they score 2, but there's 6 seconds left on the clock by the time they do that.
Why aren't we drawing up plays when we go down by 1? Where is the creativity when you need it?
I’d like to see better situations approach at 5v5. Gostisbehere and/or Sanheim should be on the ice for the majority of OZ draws. I like the idea of swapping out a defenseman for a forward as well. If the group fails to maintain possession in the OZ off the draw, the floater forward would hop off for a defenseman.
Not sure what to say about continuous 5v5 play other than, “Gordon ain’t it”.
Shouldve never gave the SLUG his deal in the 1st place.
He wasnt gonna get any faster or play any harder than before and before they were trash level
I'm gonna keep beating this drum but, slap JVR on PP1 and then at 5v5 give him Frosty as his Center and he will produce what we expect from him.
We are all masochist. Maybe we're nihilist too. I wouldn't blame anyone here for hitting a small mammal with their car if it were caught in the middle of the road, children/people excepted.
The game was false hope in the 1st period. The 2nd period is what I expected to see. Surprisingly, they got some gumption and responded well with a decent third. I didn't expect the comeback to come through, but I was upset they gave up the empty netter. Also, I find it amusing that people are ragging on Voracek, he scores. People rag on Simmer, he scores. People question Giroux, he scores. Maybe all of our negativity does have a positive effect. Yeah, totally that's it.
The Ghost penalty on Wilson makes no sense, NHL/refs- do better. Had Wilson not been skating into the zone, and Ghost impeded him from touching up to pursue the puck again, yeah, penalty. But by gosh, that penalty was just dumb. Kudos to Gordon for making the challenge call, because reasons.
I'm happy that Gordon plays Lindblom on the PK, but the timing issues are still there. The Lindblom-NP-V line being used as a 4th line surprised me some. I want them to be used more, so they need to be better.
I enjoy these threads for the quips and snark. We are all most likely decent'ish people, with a lot of bile and hate in our hearts and souls. Flyers, help us heal, inflict no more injuries, entertainment will garner our empathy.
See everyone Thursday night/Friday! Game #44 here we come!
perhaps, GM made a decision to let just one team tailspin rather than both.
I just wanted to let everyone on here know that if I hear about anyone hitting small mammals with their cars, I will deliver a beating.
Tell the Flyers to be better. I'm not gonna run over a skunk, and there isn't much wildlife in the streets of Center City Philadelphia. There's hate in my heart, and the pain I feel deserves to be felt by everything. But fear not, reptiles, amphibians, and birds are also fair game.
Large mammals only get a pass due to the damage they might inflict upon being struck by the vehicle. Had I a semi, or H1, large mammals would also be valid causalities.
We have to break the record for number of goalies played in a year. We tied it last night! Since the season is over, this is what I look forward to - breaking the record for goalie futility in a season! We only need one more goalie! I'm hoping to swing a trade for Talbot to get that contract off of their hands.
It was a good challenge. Should of been blown dead right away
Even the Washington announcers agreed.
When those paragons of objectivity agree that it was stupid, you know it was really stupid.
You are joking, right? I just have to ask...I'm 99% sure you are, but want to clarify. To me, by FAR most over rated player in league. Just watch. No one is weaker on puck then him. Horrible passer. Bad decisions. Poor skater. Have to admit, he gets points, but I think that is more of a factor of playing with Giroux and and everything that entails then anything else. If he wasn't in a good situation, hed be a 40 point a year guy...absolutely top end.
Boxscore, I thought you coped well with the bad trade criticism. Why make a second account?
