    I think the refs have an impossible job. They make judgement calls and can be wrong.

    I just wish refs would be allowed to get together, overturn a call, and not have everybody get all bent out of shape about it.

    If the refs set the tone early and keep it consistent throughout the game, then I can live with bad calls. I don’t think game 5 was badly reffed but they did have bad calls.

    That being said, I prefer the more civilized Hockey where if someone beats you with a move, they get to get something out of it more than getting hauled down.

    Might want to google the definition of the word “demoted.”

    Unfortunately nost of those guys will be back next year. Hakstol included. Losing this series won’t change that.

    He plays center in the offensive zone and Coots plays center in the defensive zone. In the neutral zone it is kind of half and half. They play off each other really but if he wasn't playing center in the offensive zone that goal he scored last night wouldn't have happened.

    I think Hak will be gone. Maybe I'm being naive but the team has been routinely embarrassed by him. Manning will be gone and I feel like Filppula will be too. I didn't realize Weise had such a stupid amount of time left on his contract and Lehtera has another year on it but he's such dead weight. MacDonald makes way too much but if there's a way to have him as a 6th defenseman he's okay. I just hate how shitty our cap is with players that are mostly detrimental to the team.

    I'm sorry but what do you mean when you say the refs call what they think happened rather than what actually happened?

    The refs can't review every single play. Their job is to call what happened, and the only way to do that is to call what they think happened.

    Perhaps you're saying they are just plain wrong too often. If so I may agree, but I'll also say they are the best there is and I highly doubt anyone else could do any better.

    And no, I'm not a ref.

    I expect Sid to blow out the Flyers at home. But good for Philly for winning 2 games so far, the Pens have the better team by far. But props to them for extending the series.

    It is a very, very, very, very, very bizarre feeling to be a Flyers fan going into a game 6 against the Pens and have literally this little emotional investment in it. My expectations are even lower than they were 2 years ago against Washington.

    Flip and Manning should be gone, both are UFA. I honestly hope that Hexy doesn't think Manning is a good depth guy. We have too many young guys who can take his spot and are 20 times better. Lehtera could be gone if Hexy buys him out.

    Definitely not. This series is nothing like 2012. That was pure hatred and felt amazing to win.

    I think the goalie switch was a no brainer even for our boy Hak. Flyers played hard but I can't see them winning another 2 games. At this point take it all the way to 7 games. Can't wait for tomorrow!

    Is Malkin in danger of missing this one?

    Unlikely. Hornqvist will probably be back in, too.

    Thanks. That’s what I thought. I was hoping we’d get one more without Hornqvist.

    I’ll be at this one. As long as we don’t get embarrassed this is officially a win for the Flyers this year. It’s hard to exclude why has been the most frustrating season I have seen in decades with Hak, but finishing third in the division and taking this series to 6 is good with me, even if it’s not that simple given the devils and jackets tanking as well as the blowouts this series.
