    When it comes to the most disappointing teams this season, Flyers are very much a contender for that title. They have fallen off so hard compared to last year.

    Borderline-playoff-team drafts 1st overall. Yeah happens all the time.

    You guys literally care more about their TOI than how they’re actually playing.

    Miller gets the win in a 6-2 victory in his last game in Anaheim.

    And it's not like they've been terrible either.

    For all the criticism the Rangers had about not finding elite talent the Flames have and were never able to gave sustained post season success.

    Yeah I always think of Iginla when I see the Flames. Even though they made the SCF in 2004 he was so far ahead of his teammates in terms of talent it was incredible. Flames management really gave him very little top talent to work with.

    I wouldn't take him either but he I still think those 13-14 and 14-15 teams overachieved, good teams but not as good as their results. We haven't overachieved in any season under Quinn. But I guess the bottom of his performances have been worse. The Flyers are a mess.

    13-14 team deserved to be where they were. They were way better than the regular season results at least (where they had the most crap-tastic luck I've seen a team have.) The 14-15 team wasn't as good, but they finished their chances and got ridiculous goaltending from both Hank and Talbot.

    How do those teams look with slightly above average goaltending though? Those teams also had a decent amount of Torts influence to them too, especially the one that went to the finals. I'll give him and the group credit for fighting back from 3-1 series deficits in back to back years though. Theres a level of focus and mental toughness that is required to do that once, let alone in consecutive years. Does anyone think that a team under Quinn would do other than go out quietly in game 5 under the same circumstances?

    Stars are stumbling. Still hoping for a Round 1 matchup with Carolina.

    The 13-14 team was good and they played a great team game (though I wouldn't say Torts-like, much better at possession), but they really only had one skater that was better than just above average (McDonagh). Fox, Panarin, and Zibanejad would be the three best players on that team not counting Hank and Buchnevich and Strome are likely pacing more points than anyone on that team (though I'm not sure if that's the case after the two game embarrassment against the Isles). That team was much better than this one just showing how they probably outperformed their talent. They were the best possession team since I've started watching (00-01) and that's more coaching. That wasn't really typical AV coaching, but it wasn't Torts coaching either. So I'm not sure what that's about.

    I think Carolina is going to be my band wagon team. Last year didn't care about the playoffs after the Rangers got swept. Carolina was just more prepared than us. But really want to enjoy some more hockey this season before next season starts.

    they’re tough. Would love to see them vs Dallas. That’s a heavy weight matchup right out of the gate. It’s a rare matchup due to Covid.

    I just don't want to see Tampa in the finals again, especially after all that LTIR BS they are pulling.

    Islanders blew a 2-0 lead (I thought it was impossible to score on them once they've already scored) and lost to a Sabres team that started a f***ing janitor in net. Even interim coaches are better than DQ.

    I'd be f***ing embarrassed to have that scumbag on my team as I was embarrassed to have Hollweg on the team when he became a hit from behind machine. I know Wilson is a better hockey player than Hollweg but that shouldn't reason to lose all of your integrity.

    Ooo, I remember Ryan "Boarding Major" Hollweg :help:

    Edit: Anyone remember the intro to NYRangerscast?
    "He cost us the game, he cost us the series, he cost us the season!"

    If the NHL can mandate that Avery attend anger management therapy for making a (very) poor taste pre-game comment, they can do the same for Wilson coming within about 2 inches of committing manslaughter twice in less than 60 seconds.
