    Laughton and VandeVelde are still here. My goodness if VandeVelde makes this team it's bad, real bad. You can see why the Flyers were pursuing Cleary.

    Anyway, it takes us one step closer to our opening night line up.

    So....

    Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
    Schenn-Vinny-Simmonds
    Laughton-Couturier-Read
    Talbot-Hall-Rinaldo

    Something like that?

    Neither are NHL players.
    not really shocked about Raffl. Send him down to the ADK and give him top line minures and get used to the NA game.

    Lauridsen is a defenseman who had a truly terrible game last night. But he's not in competition with Vandevelde for a fourth line spot.

    That would be my guess, except Laughton hasn't played a second of wing from what I remember reading. To play him out there on game 1 of the season could end up not being good.

    This seems more likely to me.

    Talbot-Couturier-Read
    Hall-Laughton-Rinaldo

    I think if the Flyers had any intention of sending Laughton back down to junior they would of done so already.
    I think he is here to stay

    I agree. With Hall taking faceoffs hopefully.

    Article says the team has 25 active members, I don't understand what happened to Cousins, Holmstrom and McGinn? Aren't they still with the team after last night? Or are we just assuming they're headed down with Raffl and Lauridsen? It's a shame cause I think Cousins should have gotten an extended look, he's been better then Raffl for sure.

    If only Gill would be released or whatever they have to do with guys on PTO's.

    Do you guys still think they shouldn't have re-signed Gagne?

    Holmstrom cleared waivers and is with the Phantoms. I believe McGinn was sent down (I could be wrong). Not too sure about Cousins...

    Yes, There's a reason no other team has signed him.

    Not surprised on Raffl, he's looked like Pyorala 2.0.

    I think they're going to keep Talbot with Couturier and Read.

    Cousins, Holmstrom and McGinn were all sent down to the Phantoms last week. Yes, they played in the exhibition game last night against the Devils but they're on the Phantoms roster at this point.

    I thought you need 24 hours to clear waivers? All three played last night at 7.

    Yes. Its perfectly fine to have an already signed average winger to play 3W than sign another player to play 3W

    Ok, I was aware they were sent down/assigned to ADK I just didn't know they could continue to play in exhibition games. Thanks

    Yes because I'm basing it off what he is now not what he was.

    What's the reason? I'm not trying to stir things up, I just think Gagne would've been a better option than what's available. I still maintain my stance that he was pretty good last year.

    His offensive game has deteriorated to the point where he can no longer be a top 6 winger, he looked out of place when asked to do that for the Flyers last season. Specifically to the Flyers he isn't a fit because they seem to want someone on that 3rd line LW who can win puck battles and be effective along the boards, that's never been Gagnes game.

    Then what player should be the third line winger? Laughton? McGinn? Raffl? None of these guys have really shown much.

    So does VandeVelde need to be reassigned to the Phantoms or is it just automatic since he is on a AHL only deal? Given his game last night, I can't imagine they want or need to give him another look.

    EDIT: The article said 25, so I guess he is still with the Flyers.
