    ....with the upcoming week off, would a loss to the Pens that sends them to 1-7 prompt them to make some type of move (players, GM, managment)? Knowing the reactive nature of this franchise, I know it may not be logical, but I can see something drastic happening with the extended time off.

    If they had any motivation to avoid a) being traded or b) having a full week of bag skates, they didn't show it tonight.

    The lack of playmaking is evident. Akeson needs to be recalled. They can let Simmonds sit in the pressbox for a game to wake him up.

    Partly logical, partly symbolic. More importantly, it would be meant as a shock to the system, intended to filter down to other positions. When you shake things up, people get shook.

    Or at least you hope they do.

    The only move that could be made is remove the general manager. The big but here is the team is what it is right now so what would be the point? I don't think you gain a positive it's not like he's running the team on a day to day basis like a head coach does.

    Raffl has looked better than Simmonds, Hartnell, Talbot, any of the 4th liners, and about on par with Voracek.

    He could use more AHL seasoning, but there's players who are bringing much less than him at the moment.

    You can't have this many vets and still lose in this way. I'm down for a complete youth movement and tanking 2 years

    :handclap: agreed as horrible as it sounds but it could make this team that much better and maybe take us to the next step and i say we trade some players for picks as well

    Sadly the "bridge" signings with Lecavalier and Streit will have minimal impact....it's like the Bridge to nowhere in Alaska...

    If they can't up to play the Pens and get a win on home ice then we are in serious trouble. But we will beat the Pens. The more disorganized we look against other teams the better we play against the Pens. It seems. Hopefully. Please.

    Quite honestly the best thing for the Flyers organization could be to be embarrassed by the Pittsburgh Penguins on home ice Thursday night. If that happens much needed changes will be made.

    You may be right but the last thing I or anyone deserves to see this season is to lose badly to the Pens at home. That would be worse then any 2 losses combined this season.

    I'm half waiting for the fans to do something in total Philly character and really dig into this team. That being said if we lose to the Pens on Thursday there will be blood in the water. IF they only beat one team the rest of the way you can pencil me in for it being Pitt.
    That being said I don't know if you can really do much in that next week aside from concede defeat. Either hope the week turns it around or what trade for Yakupov as was a rather brief and early rumor in the day? Trade the only veterans on the blue line we have?

    Even if this team were playing normally you shouldn't expect to dominate or play the Pens well every game. So with the way we're playing and with the way the Pens are playing...yeah. Stark contrast there.

    Actually, the Pens are missing Neal and Letang and are still doing well.
