Clarke is an idiot nice job to condone classless cheap shots lets just see what happens when downie decides to fight somebody that is looking at him or not facing the other way. (I guess downies class even gets shared with his own 16 year old teamates) hes just begging for a world class a**beating and iam sure he will get it.

hey pbn check this out

clarke loved the downie punch (http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=226849&hubname=)

its about time somebody in the organization stood up and said good for you guys, keep playing that way, i cant wait for off the record today now.

video will be up on the tsn site after 6pm eastern

Bah.... That's just Clarkie being Clarkie. Sometimes I wish he would just stay quite. Clarke has always been the type of guy who when he says something, he makes it seem like he is a God and you should bow in front of him. Clarke is no longer the GM of this team and should remain OUT of the public eye. There is something called "public relations" for spin control. Clarkie is the anti-public relations.
As far as Downie, he's a big boy and can take care of himself. I've yet to see him back down from anyone. I don't think I will ever see him duck and hide the way Tie Domi used to. Should be fun watching Downie and Avery take to the ice Thursday night. 2 train wrecks headed straight at each other. MMMMmmm... Good ole East coast hockey at it's finest.

Chad, great news bro. 4 of the 5 injured starters will be ready to go tonight (Thursday) at the Rangers. Jason Smith, Sami Kapanen, Scottie Upshall and SIMON GAGNE!!!!!!!!! Lupol will remain pretty much bed ridden for the next 2 weeks. I imagine he will not play for the next 3 weeks at the earliest.
Also, Nitty will make his 3rd start in a row. here's the link:

A couple nice comments about Downie at the bottom of the article amid all the hoopla.

Where is the OUTRAGE by all Hockey fans who spew their venom towards the Flyers. This is pretty comparable to what Downie did. The only difference is the Carolina player suffered a broken orbital bone and has been out since this incident. This happened December 26th and yet, I never saw it on TSN or here. Like i said all along, a little consistency would be nice.

The difference here is I won't run around singling out "cheap shots". It's not my thing. If it was, I would be sure to look at teams that don't sport the Orange and Black too. I'm not TSN.
There are planty of repeat offenders out there. No team has had more then 2 questionable incidents this season other then the Flyers? Gimme a break.

Are you gonna compare Avery's #'s to Downie's #'s now? The guy has played 5 games. I wouldn't expect you to know of Downie's abilities as you probably have never watched him. How could you? Afterall, he played for the Phantoms and there is no way you could have seen him. I have. He is very good with and without the puck. He knows where to go when he doesn't have the puck. He always seems to be in the right spot at the right time. That's not luck, it's awareness. Coule that awareness and his ability to finish, you get a quality offensive young player. If he continues to be paired with Mike Richards, he can only get better.

Bronx..... You just don't see the point. Fine, Downie's "rabbit punch" was dirty. I agree.

Ok great now awswer this what point from this comment don't i get?


I have a question pertaining to Don Cherry since you defend his comments. How can he say "it was one of the dirtiest things he's ever seen" when he loved Tie Domi. Remember what Domi did to Ulf about 10 years ago? The total sucker punch while his gloves were on and Ulf wasn't looking? That was (save for McSorely on Brashear), the dirtiest thing I've seen. Also, how can Don Cherry say "Kids, NEVER EVER EVER EVER do that" (What downie did) and then at the end of his thought say "There are certain guys in the league you can do that to but not Blake"? What the hell is that? Talk about talking out of both sides of your mouth!
Now, you defended Cherry on "EVERYTHING". How can you defend what I just addressed?


I agree what downie did wasn't nearly as bad and this is what i don't like about the ego (don cherry) he run his hole with reckless abandon. I know i said i agreed with every thing he said i guess i didn't pay close enough attention to cherry being cherry (my bad)

Also, stop taking chit so personal. I have no idea how you turned my quote into meaning "I know more about hockey".

I didn't say you knew more than me i said you are (no bigger hockey fan) that's kinda based on the general consensus i get from every flyer fan i have discussed this seasons rash of suspensions. Iam sorry i grinds my gears when folks are so narrow minded about these hits when you said downies rabbit punch was cheap (that was the first) admission i have gotten from a flyer fan (the first) you understand my position now?


Colin Campbell has a hard on for the Flyers because, whether you know it or not,

Sorry i don't agree

Colin coached the Rangers for a few years. The Flyers/Rangers have one of the best rivalries in all of sports. Campbell hated the Flyers then and he carried that with him to his new Position

I just don't see colin using an old rivalry as a motive for suspensions (they have all been earned) IMO sorry but that's my opinion.

(No, not bent over Bettman's desk, his other NHL position)).
I have no idea how much Hockey you know or don't know. I really don't care.

Sure ya do or we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Now, to the point that I have been trying to make and I still haven't gotten an answer to from you. How was the hit on Colburn not a penalty when 2 Flyers had similar hits this season and gotten suspended for? That's all I want to know. Can you give me an answer?

How the hell can i give you an answer i tried finding the colburn hit because to tell you truth i don't remember it so i can't help you out there. But based on your angle your feeling picked on by the league and all i can say is (get out from under the microscope) your players put you there (that's a fact) if flyers keep up the hits (your going to get attention from the league) simple. Is very easy to play a smash mouth style hockey (flyer hockey) you just have some youngster taking the style just a bit to far (just do it clean) thus far your team hasen't weather you believe it or not.


If this were the Av's, would you share my same point of view?

No (that's my opinion) it's not clean hockey i didn't agree with claude lemeuix hit on draper if that tells you anything

Flyers fans just want consistency. that's all. Most are okay with the suspensions. Like I said all along, I welcome them. That said, it's total BS that what's called for one team is not called for the entire league. Think about it.

You would have to sit down with colin to get these answers and go through each play to get the type of answer you want (i can't help you) it's your opinion colin isn't consistant with punishments and iam guessing the flyer sites you visit are all crying bloody murder and you have pretty much joined the crowd.

Peace

Bronx, I posted the clip of the hit on post number 231 here. Don't bother going back. I will copy and paste it here:

Oh alright, I'll post it. Interestingly enough, it's nowhere to be found on youtube. A fellow Flyer Fan fowarded this to me. The hit, which TSN skated right by, is 28 seconds into the video. The don't even show Coburn's eyebrow exploding. They just show him on the bench getting looked at. Again, the it is 28 sefconds into the main video. The first 15 seconds is of the Canadian Jr's.
I guess since Coburn didn't ACT like he was killed, he didn't get the penalty call. BS

Good OT loss for the Flyers yesterday against Boston. Sounds wierd but the Flyers trailed 3-1 with 7 minutes to play. Good thing we got a point.

I wish Stevens would scratch/trade/cut Vandermeer. He's a turnover machine and gets lost gazing at the puck in the offensive zone and forgets to check the opposing forward. The result is giving up a chitload of oddman rushes or flat out clean breakaways. He did it again in OT yesterday and we lost on that play.
Dump Vandermeer and start dressing Lassi Kukenen.

01-13-2008, 02:45 PM
i think kuks is still hurt. but yeah i kinda agree, id rather have eager back, altho he did lose a fight to 50 year old gary roberts.

anyhow

did you see the laffs game last night ? more importantly did you see sundin shove the linesman ?

granted its not an illegal hit on a player, but im pretty sure there is a rule about keeping your hands off the refs.

Flyers use 3-on-1 breakaway to savagely beat opposing defenseman

The Philadelphia Flyers took the opportunity of a 3-on-1 break last night not to try to notch a goal and even the score against the Maple Leafs, but instead savagely beat overmatched Toronto defenseman Ian White.
“Yeah, we probably could have scored easily,” said Flyers center Mike Richards. “But we try to look at the bigger picture. Ian is an important player for Toronto. We’ll have to play them again this season. But if we beat the sh-t out of him and put him in a coma, he can’t hurt us down the road. It’s pretty simple, really.”
White took several good shots from the three attacking Flyers – including a slash to the face, a skate blade kick to the neck and several knife puncture wounds – before his teammates were able to catch up to the play and rescue him.
“Typically pussy behavior by the Maple Leafs, rescuing White,” said Flyers right wing Steve Downie, who went at White with a battle axe in the melee. “What, the guy can’t fight his own battles? If you can’t handle a beating, then don’t get on the ice against the Flyers.”

Lupul update:

Lupul: Injury was "Scary" Kevin Kurz philadelphiaflyers.com Jan 14, 2008, 1:54 PM EST
Lupul Flyers winger still not cleared for physical activity

(Voorhees, NJ) – Flyers right wing Joffrey Lupul remembers exactly what happened on the play in which he got hurt.

“I just could not get up. I remember thinking to myself ‘try and get up,’ but I couldn’t,” he said on Monday morning. “I kind of lost the feeling in my arms and my legs. It was scary a little bit, especially later that night and the next day when I still didn’t really have the feeling in my hands.

“It was kind of a burning sensation, kind of a pins-and-needles type thing in my hands and through my arms. That was definitely the scariest part about it.”

Lupul was hit by teammate Derian Hatcher, who was trying to make contact with the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Alexander Steen during a game at the Air Canada Centre on January 5. Hatcher grazed by Steen but ended up on top of Lupul and landing on the 6’1’’, 205-pound forward’s head, giving him a spinal cord contusion and mild concussion.

Joffrey Lupul is helped up onto his skates by trainer Jim McCrossin and defenseman Braydon Coburn after getting hit during a game in Toronto on January 5. (Getty Images)

Upon returning to Philadelphia later that night, Lupul was admitted to the University of Pennsylvania hospital and ordered to refrain from physical activity of any kind for two weeks. He is scheduled to see Dr. William Welch, a neurosurgeon at the hospital, again on Wednesday.

“It’s tough for me to really make a good assessment right now seeing as how I have not really done much for the past nine or 10 days,” said Lupul. “I’ve been doing a lot of relaxing and everything feels good. I’ll know more when I am allowed to test myself, exercise and train.”

Paul Holmgren is anxious to see Lupul get back on the ice, but he and the team staff will be very careful due to the severity of the injury.

“We will continue to monitor Joffrey as we go along,” said Holmgren. “Hopefully he can start to maybe do some light exercises later in the week if everything goes okay with his doctor’s appointment on Wednesday [he'll] get back on the road to recovery.”

Lupul, acquired along with Jason Smith via trade last summer from Edmonton, was playing some of his best hockey of the season when he suffered the injury. In the 11 games prior to when he got hurt, Lupul had 10 goals and eight assists for 18 points. He recorded hat tricks on two separate occasions, and is still third on the Flyers in scoring with 35 points.

Fortunately for the Flyers, players like Scott Hartnell and Steve Downie have helped to fill the void left by Lupul. Hartnell has eight points in the last four games (5g, 3a), while the rookie Downie has five points in the last five games (2g, 3a).

“It’s great to see the guys on such a roll right now especially some of the young guys chipping in like Downie,” said Lupul of the Flyers, who are 7-1-1 in their last nine games. “It’s been great to watch, and I am really happy for those guys.”

FLYERS NOTES
The Flyers had a complete day off on Monday and will resume practice on Tuesday at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone. … Hartnell was named as the NHL’s third Star of the Week on Monday.

I see a guy trying to go to his bench and he wasn't happy, has sundin ever done this before? does he has a history of this? and as for the (pushing and shoving?) how can it be both? and what exactly was sundin trying to escape? are you going to nit pick every play this year? if the league did this too every player in the league every player would be suspended at one time of the other.

Philadelphia 5, Florida 3

Preview - Box Score - Recap - Highlights

January 16, 2008

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A great start did wonders for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Daniel Briere scored twice and Kimmo Timonen had a goal and two assists for the Flyers, who had a four-goal opening period and held off the Florida Panthers 5-3 on Wednesday night.

"It's a good feeling to come out in the first period and really take it to them," Briere said after the Flyers jumped out to a 4-1 lead. "It's good for our confidence."

Simon Gagne and Scott Hartnell also scored for the Flyers, who have won two straight, and five of their last six, and denied Panthers coach Jacques Martin his 500th win.

Flyers coach John Stevens said "there is no question" that the quick start helped the Flyers.

"We created all kinds of scoring opportunities and the power play got going," Stevens said. "It (power plays) really seemed to give us energy and momentum and got the crowd behind us."

Two of the first three goals -- by Gagne and Briere -- came with the man advantage for the Flyers, who came in with the NHL's best power play at home (25-for-95, 26.3 percent). For the game, they were 2-for-7.

Martin, looking to become the 10th coach in NHL history to win 500 games, won No. 499 on Jan. 10 at Atlanta, but Florida has lost three straight since. Jay Bouwmeester, Rostislav Olesz, and Stephen Weiss had goals for the Panthers, who have dropped five of six.

Martin said penalties were the big difference.

"We were playing well early and they were not getting much," Martin said. "We had momentum and lost it because we lost 10 minutes of the game in penalties."

Philadelphia backup Antero Niittymaki, who hasn't lost in regulation in his last six starts (5-0-1), made 28 saves. His only loss during that span came against Boston, 4-3, in overtime last Saturday.

Timonen put the Flyers ahead at 2:46 of the first period, shoveling a shot from the left side over the shoulder of Tomas Vokoun, who started in goal for the 42nd time in Florida's 47 games.

Bouwmeester, left alone in front of the crease, tied it on a wrister at 9:10.

After Gagne made it 2-1 with a rebound on a power play at 12:14, the Flyers scored twice within a span of 1:21 to take a 4-1 lead.

Briere, who also had an empty-net goal, put a shot through a screen on another power play at 16:38. Hartnell scored at 17:59 when his shot from the right board deflected off a Florida defenseman and into the net.

The Panthers pulled to within 4-3 in the second period. Olesz scored unassisted on a backhander after Philadelphia's Derian Hatcher lost the puck deep in the Flyers' zone at 13:01. Weiss scored while falling in front of the net after taking a pass from Olli Jokinen at 18:28.

"We started off pretty good, but then we sat back in the second period," Timonen said. "We have to learn to keep it going and make the game 6-1 instead of 4-3. You need to bring your 'A' game every night if you want to make the playoffs."

Jokinen said teams must keep mistakes to a minimum when they play the Flyers.

"We gave up way too many odd-man rushes," Jokinen said. "Some of the penalties we'd like to have back, but overall it was a fair game, with some good clean hits."

Notes

Martin, the only person in the NHL serving as both coach and general manager, joined Florida as head coach in May, 2004 and has compiled a 92-90-29 regular season record with them. ... The Panthers are 9-4 in their last 13 road games. ... Philadelphia RW Mike Knuble played in his 700th NHL game. ... Philadelphia D Rory Fitzpatrick was placed on injured reserve with a sports hernia. ... Gagne has scored points in five straight games since returning after missing 26 games with a concussion.

Briere Should be Cindy's replacement. He was fourth in voting but didn't make it.

As far as Downie vs the Sens..... I have a link where Paddock says he wished all his players played exactly like Downie. Interestin. He's bad for the league according to some here and that jit-bag on TSN.

yeah i agree about brierre, altho personally i still think hes almost as big a puss and cry baby as cindy.

and yeah i saw that article, its on the O&B messageboard, heres the quote

"He plays the game the way we want our players to play the game. He will be a presence in the game, I can just about guarantee it."

did you see what they had on hockeybuzz about downie ?

Have you noticed that-

•Steve Downie can play? John Stevens uses him in the last 2 minutes of Flyers one-goal-lead games which really has Downie-haters in straight-jackets. Guess when he represented Canada at the World Juniors, it wasn’t a fluke. Duh!!


its nice to see people are finally starting to realize this kid deserves to be in the league and isnt the useless goon that they played him out to be, altho i will still refer to him as Attila the hun just cuz it has a nice ring to it.

phillybroncosnut
01-19-2008, 06:32 PM
What's the O&B board? Any addresses for good hockey boards? The only Flyer board I am on is the Flyers website board.

I knew Downie had talent. I've said it all along here. It's funny how people view him as a goon. He hasn't been in a fight since his suspension expired. Itg's not because he doesn't want to either. At the Boston game, I watched him trying to get Chara to drop the gloves. Chara didn't comply.
I am going to tomorrow nights game. Should be fun to see if Neil challanges him.

Can you make it down to Philly at all? I have 11 games left that I have tix to. If you can make it down, I'll treat you.

Hartnell with another Hat on the road. He has 4 points. Downie with a goal and Richie just scored on a 2 on 1. Flyers trailed 3-1 after 1 but hold a 5-3 lead with just over 5 minutes left in regulation.
I'd say the Hartnell, Richie, Downie line is going good!

Flyers win. They are now tied for the lead in the division. They have 2 games in hand on the Pens ans the Devils. Amazing when you think that they haven't been full strength for the entire season. Once Lup's gets back, this team will be a force.

A complete and utter ass kicking by the Flyers. I thought McGratton was a tough guy. Well he got completely embarrassed by Riley Cote. Cote absolutely destroyed him.
The Sens never had a chance as the Flyers opened up a 4-0 lead early in the 2nd and went on to win 6-1. Flyers continue to roll and are now tied with the Pens and Devils for the East lead. The Flyer play the Devils on Tuesday and the Pens on Thursday this week. The Flyers also have a game in hand on both teams.

That 3rd goal was BS. First off, like you said, it was a blatant interference. 2nd, Staal knocked the net off before the puck went in. During live play it was impossible to see whether the net was off first becase I was at the game. However, they showed the reply 20 times on the big screen, slowing it down frame by frame and the net came off right before the puck crossed the line.
I still have no idea how it was not a goaltender interference.

As far as Briere.... he was stupid and deserved a penalty. There is no reason for him to skate through the crease in that situation. Stay out of the crease and you can't get a penalty there.

All in all it was a great night at the Big House! Fun times harassing Pen fans. Tied for first going into the all star break with a game in hand on everyone in the division.

i disagree on the briere thing, and frame by frame if stall wasnt in the net it was a goal, the net is allowd to be up it just cant have moved off the pegs, and you can clearly see the net is still on the pegs till after the puck, but like i said how that isnt a penalty is beyond me.

So pens blog loses the bet and the winner gets to post on the losers site...

Link (http://thepensblog.blogspot.com/1984/04/in-which-flyers-flyers-fan-invades.html)

So the Pensblog and The 700 Level made a little mayor's wager on the outcome of the Flyers-Pens game last night, wherein the winning city's representative gets to post whatever suits their fancy on the other's site. Naturally, Philly won, and we are here to enjoy our spoils.

While trying to decide how to shape this post, several ideas came to mind. I could do a game thread, complete with hard returns after single sentences, cartoon characters doing adult things, and PhotoShops of Michel Therrian wearing a Borat singlet. Or perhaps I could be inflammatory, titling the post, "Another Chapter in the Annals of Pittsburgh's Inferiority Complex," and discussing the big brother city/little brother city relationship that defines our political and sporting rivalries (ie, you think there's a big rivalry; we don't pay attention to you). However, although they'd be fun and surely provide some oxygen for the comment flame, neither of those things would accurately convey how I feel about the Penguins. To be honest, I've always kind of liked PA's other hockey franchise.

How could anyone, at any time, find fault with Mario Lemieux? I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a black Jagr away jersey, with "Pittsburgh" diagonally down the front and an "A" on the chest (they need to go back to that design, by the way). When I was a wee hockey fan, I collected jerseys as soon as I could afford them, and this was my second favorite (Roy white Canadiens was first). I didn't love the Pens or anything, but it was hard not to be amazed by the play of a young Euro star like Jaromir Jagr. Years later, I wouldn't be caught dead in anything but Phila gear, but times were different when I was 11 years old and skating on a hose-frozen backyard snowfall.

When I heard the Penguins might lose their franchise, I thought it would be a devastating crime against hockey, and definitely the city of Pittsburgh. I nervously tracked the news, which was increasingly ominous for a while. And as much as it may surprise you, when I watched as Super Mario & Co. rebuilt that franchise with unprecedented good draft positions and perfect selections, I was happy. I can't lie; there are quite a few teams for which I have bus-accident hatred… The Penguins just aren't one of them. Not being from New York, New Jersey, or DC helps. We think of you kinda like we think of Baltimore, which is to say, we don't think about you very much at all.

But I am glad to see this rivalry heat up. Since both franchises entered the league in 1967, the Flyers have owned the Pens, winning 50 more games over that time frame. This year, Philly has won the first 4 games. How could I not welcome some new venom, and hopefully, bragging rights? Perhaps with time, rather than Lemieux's iconicism, the Darius Kasparitises of the world will become my new old Pens memories (both his being an absolute scumbag, and also the fact that he's in the frame when Keith Primeau hits "The Shot.")

Clip
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHGMqXQEfw4)
I can feel my dislike for the boys in Black and Vegas Gold growing daily though, and it does so not because of the Georges Laraque's of the world… my vitriol is aimed almost entirely at Sidney Crosby.

Crosby is undoubtedly a player of amazing talent and scary potential. He will be a thorn in the side of the Flyers and their fans for the next 10 years (at least). However, the same can be said for Evgeni Malkin, and to a lesser extent, Jordan Staal and perhaps Colby Armstrong. I'd love to see any of those latter guys skate in Orange and Black (as well as Laraque). Who wouldn't? I love to watch them play right now, even against my Flyers. But I don't want Crosby. He'd have no place in Philly with his dives, complaints, and expectations of kid-glove treatments. I understand it's crazy not to want an MVP-caliber player on your team, and Paul Holmgren likely wouldn't appreciate me saying so, but I hope to Kate Smith I never see Sid Crosby on the Flyers. He embodies the only kind of player I truly dislike. I like the agitators, the Euro burners, the fourth-line plodding Canadians, the brawlers who have so little talent they might as well where a cape and wrestling tights, even when they're on the other team; but I can't stand an immensely talented player who constantly takes dives, talks trash, but won't fight.

I'll take Mike Richards as my team's captain over Sid Crosby any day of the week. It takes more than scoring. It takes a man to be a leader on the ice, and so far, I don't see Crosby as that kind of guy. Go ahead and throw his stats at me. I know 'em. I don't care. I just don't like him.

That said, when I was having a beer in a hotel bar earlier this week and saw Crosby go down in a heap, with the words "high ankle sprain" at the bottom of the replay, I was pretty disappointed. I knew this great game was right around the corner, and the rivalry is more fun when Sid's on the ice, particularly in Philly. I also freely admit that Sid is great for hockey, a struggling sport that I love. His shootout goal in the Winter Classic helped get hockey some of the attention it deserves, and his absence at the All-Star festivities is unfortunate for the game.

The Flyboys take over the East division lead. They are 1 pt ahead of Pitts and 2 pts ahead of the Devils. They still have a game in hand on both teams.
What an ugly game with the Kings. Was it post allstar game rust or playing down to the competition? I think both. Doesnt matter though as they get the win and 2 points. On deck... The LAST PLACE Rangers.

How shocking Chad.... The great Colin Campbell decides that Laraques hit on Downey did not deserve a a suspension. Nah, Colin doesn't have a hard on for the Flyers. Right! Does that dickless moron flip a coin to decide suspensions? Whatever. I guess knuckle dragger will have to pay on the ice. Thats the 2nd dirty play he has pulled on the Flyers this season. The first being Laraques pathetic attempt to cut Birons leg out.
I wanted to puke watching Stevens and Holmgren have to "watch their words" when asked to give their opinion of Campbells decision to not suspend Laraque. What a joke.

Anyway.... GO FLYERS!

I was at the game so I am not 100% sure because I didn't hear the announcers. From what I saw, he kept going after the ref with his body and lips. Everytime they tried to put him in the box, he circled around to yap some more. Usually you see the ref put his hands on his hips, the same way an NFL ref signals offside, but I never saw him make that signal to call the misconduct. Who knows. I don't know if he got the misconduct before he kept yapping or if his yapping got him the misconduct.

im a little concerned after this weekends performances, coburn goes down, gagne left the game today with what is being called a mild concussion, upshall is out a week to 10 days, and nobody is stepping up, briere is being the little bitch that i thought he would be, he gets pushed off the puck far to easily, today was a perfect example, cindy goes down, mcfluerry goes down and malkin takes the team on his back, 4 points ? come on, whos carrying the flyers ? our 3 line scoring depth has dried up, everybody is cold at once. and everything is so close that a few bad weeks and your out of the playoffs looking in. That being said, currently sitting in 6th place in the east would get us either the capitals or the hurricanes, which would be about the best possible matchup, and easiest way into the second round.

While Briere deserves some blame, he is far from a bust. He is 2nd on the Flyers in points. His plus/minus is putrid though. It's easy to target the highest paid player, but, this weekend was just 2 games in a 82 game season. The Flyers are so streaky. They just came off of a 12 out of 15 streak and have now fallen back to earth. It happens, especially with a young team who is once again caught with injury issues.

Sometimes I find myself saying "Where is Briere" when we need a big goal, so sometimes, I see what you are saying. However, Danny is 3rd on the team in goals (20) and 2nd on the team in assists (32). It's tough to be "invisible all year" when you take that into account.
I miss the days when we had Lindros. You knew when we were down by a goal late, he would take over and give us that late goal. If not, he would create enough space for Renberg or leclair to score. Primeau was the same. We don't have that. Hell, gagne isn't that guy either. The best player to fall back on is Mike Richards.
I love Scottie Upshall but I think he is on his way out. Somehow, he is in Stevens' doghouse (as is Lasse). i don't know why either player is in the doghouse. I think both could be great players. I know Upshall takes some dumb penalties but Stevens' needs to understand that Scottie is young and aggressive. Upshall will learn as time goes on. i just think it won't be in Philly. He was a healthy scratch a couple times this season and got moved down to the 3rd or 4th line a few times as well.
We'll see what happens when he's healthy though. It will be tough to get value for him while he's hurt if the Flyers plan on moving him at the deadline.

Never heard of this injury..

he Philadelphia Flyers will be without Braydon Coburn for up to two weeks after tests revealed the defenseman suffered a torn artery in his left buttock in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

"We'll probably know more in a few days," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Holmgren said he'd never heard of such an injury.

According to the newspaper, Coburn wasn't sure how he injured himself in the Flyers' 2-0 loss to the Rangers. Lasse Kukkonen replaced Coburn in the lineup for Sunday's 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

"You don't want to see anyone go down, especially like that, a guy rushed to the hospital," Kukkonen said, according to the Inquirer. "I heard he is OK. I talked to him last night, and he is feeling better."

Coburn, who turns 23 on Feb. 27, has four goals and 20 assists in 54 games this season.

There are a few positives right now though. Ryan Parent has looked awesome in his 2 games and Lasse Kukkonen has been great as well. I really think Kuk's is a top 4 defenseman on this team. I'm not sure why Stevens doesn't see the same.
Also, if the Flyers can just hang on and get in the second season, they have as good a chance as anyone in the east. I don't care who the 8 seed in the east is. Everyone of these teams has a chance.
Hell, it's better then losing 6 games in a row headed into the playoffs. Get the ugly's out of the way now.

(http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/flyers/20080217_On_the_NHL__A_vote_in_favor_of_change.htm l)On Briere. Everyone who thinks Danny Briere has been a waste of money needs to take a deep breath.

Of the top three free-agent centers available last summer - Briere, Chris Drury and Scott Gomez - only Gomez has found the right partners on the ice and is on the "plus" side, barely. It took a while for Gomez to achieve that with the Rangers. Both Briere and Drury have not found chemistry, and it's affecting their offensive numbers. Both are minus players.

Of the players who have earned millions of dollars, Briere is the least-defensive-minded center the Flyers have ever had, but the team knew that and accepted it based on his projected offensive numbers.

If Simon Gagne is healthy, this probably is a nonissue. Losing Gagne for much of the season has hurt Briere considerably. Briere should get a one-year pass.

Lupol is in a cast with a high ankle sprain. Downie has an "upper body injury".

BTW Bronx, according to the Flyers website, the Flyers have 213 man games lost this season. With Gagne, and Lupol out indefinately, and the uncertainty of Downie's injury, that number will climb quickly. This blows.

Totally agree about the Begin hit. Whatever though. I guess we can add Tolpeko to the injury list as well. Why won't they call up Ruzicka? I gotta check out his contract. Tolpeka, and Greentree. Ruzicka is by far the best scorer on the Phantoms.
We are now out of the playoffs but I am not surprised. Why Stevens hasn't come under fire I have no clue. The guy's system blows. You can't play a "zone" D at even strength anymore. There's a reason we are grossly outshot every game.
I always thought it was a bad idea to have a passive coach with no experience coaching a bunch of inexperienced players. I'm rambling but I'm grasping here.

Oh yeah, and when did Guy Carbaneau become the Bill Lambeer of the NHL? Does that guy cry like that after every penalty called on his team?

Meh, the Habs aren't going anywhere anyway. So, they bust ur balls now, you bust their balls later. You'll get the last laugh. Besides, judging by this post, their fans are really dumb......

"I am glad Boullion made the Flyers pay for that hit to the head...I am almost 100% sure that will be reviewed by Colin Campbell and whoever laid that hit on Kostitsyn...I think it was Upshall? will be suspended...that was a ridiculous shot and the NHL is trying to get rid of that garbage. On a side note...LOVE how begin set the tone and gave whoever that was some frequent flyer miles!!! GO GO"

By BRUCE GARRIOCH, Sun Media


NAPLES, FLA. - Tomas Kaberle could be on the move.

Two league executives told the Sun talks to send the Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman to the Philadelphia Flyers have intensified in the last 24 hours.

The belief is Kaberle may have been asked to waive his no movement clause and if he agrees a deal could be completed.

Toronto Maple Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher was asked today if he had requested that any of his five players with no movement clauses waive them? He said he hadn't, but admitted there was nothing stopping him from doing that.

"They have no trade clauses so they control their own destiny," said Fletcher.


Fletcher and Flyers GM Paul Holmgren were seen meeting briefly earlier today. They are in Georgia along with the other NHL GMs for their annual mid-season meetings.

in more important news, forsberg wont be coming back, thank god, now the team can get on with things.

not sure how i feel about kaberle, depends on what he costs.

also claude giroux is supposed to be an emergency call up for the game in ottawa, just 1 day after taking over the scoring lead in the Q. i hope its true id love to see what he can do.

phillybroncosnut
02-18-2008, 07:31 PM
I am excited about Giroux. However, I wish the Flyers would give Ruzicka a look. I think he is more then ready for the NHL.
Kaberle is an interesting name. We've been hearing he is coming to Philly since the Lindros soap opera. I would take him. He's a puck moving defenseman and lord knows, we need another one of those. Every team is looking for one though so I hope there isn't a bidding war for Kaberle. If there is, I don't want to overpay for him. Toronto isn't gonna want a veteren for him so it will have to be a young player or pick. A pick won't take some of the cap hit we will take on. I worry what we may have to give up. Carter is too much to give up, as is Umberger. Maybe Ryan Parent? I hope not. I wouldn't do it.
I got it. I just came up with the player and you won't like it..... Scottie Upshall. His contract is up soon and I don't think he will be resigned anyway.

Would you do Kaberle for Upshall? I think I know you will say no. I would do it though. We have enough young talented wingers. You can never have enough skilled defenseman.

chadta
02-18-2008, 07:54 PM
i would but i dont think upshall gets the deal done, if i was toronto i wouldnt do that deal. maybe upshall and a third.

i really think they had upshall with briere to try and showcase him to trade him, but i realy dont think hes enough to get a puck moving d man with a resonable price tag.

plus we would still have to clear cap room, so we gotta get hatcher off the books, and probally knuble or kapanen just to fit kabrele under.

dont see it happening, less we trade knuble for a pick then trade upshall and that pick to toronto.

I don't know. Upshall is a pretty good chip. I would throw in the 3rd rounder if thats what they held out for.

Kap's if a fan favorite yet has zero trade value. if you can't get anything for him, they should just keep him to keep the natives happy. Knuble is another story. I look at it this way.... the old saying is sell high buy low. Well, Knuble is a major reason why we were the #1 PP for virtually the entire year (now #2). Mike has 15 PP goals. That should make him very attractive to other teams. We all know he is useless on 5 on 5 because he has no stick handling ability and is slower then my grandmom on skates. When he is able to camp out in front on the PP, he is a beast.
I think you can find any big stiff to fill that role. Hell, throw Hatcher down there on the PP (jk, sort of). I think if we can find a trade partner for knuible, make the deal. i'm not even looking for much in return. Just getting his salary off the books is enough for me.

I for one thought Modry looked good. he is was more mobile then Hatcher and can actually move the puck up ice. The Flyers also finally called Stefan Ruzicka up. He looked good in his first game collecting an assist. Giroux looks great.
Richards, briere, Carter and Umberger should be ashamed of themselves. I understand that the massive amounts of injuries have really hurt but all of them HAVE to step it up and not one of them has.
Thank god Vandermeer is gone. I have been pleading for this since his second game back with the Flyers.

We've just picked up an extra $5.2 million of cap money with Gagne being done for the year. with that said, I think the Flyers should be sellers an d not buyers at the deadline. Kapanen, Knuble, and at this point I'd consider trading Jason Smith. I think we are set at D going into next season. Timonen, Coburn, Randy Jones, Parent, Kukkenon, and Andre Picard. We could get a boatload for Jason Smith.

This could go either way. I don't see the Flyers throwing in the towel. The Flyers always have tried to do everything and anything to put a winner on the ice. I would'nt be surprised to see the Flyers go after a Marian Hossa with all that new found cap money, but, I would rather see the Flyers sell though.

I kinda disagree. Kapanen still has speed and plays with more energy then alot of players in this league. I don't expect to get much at all but I can see how some playoff teams could covet him.
Jason Smith is extremely physical and let's not forget he was a Captain in Edmonton as well as with the Flyers. That leadership and experience is as important come playoff time as someone who put's the puck in the net. I think we could get a 2nd rounder or high prospect for him.
Knuble, like I said before, is useless at even strength. With that said, he is either first or second in the entire NHL in PP goals (16). We all know that special teams make or break teams in the playoffs. I think Knuble could get us more then he should command.

It all depends on how many teams get involved. If only 1 team wants Knuble, it will be hard to extract more then that team is originally offering. If more then 1 team wants any of the above players, we can use them against each other and milk them like a cow.

With the news about Richie, I am on the fence on what direction I want this team to go the rest of the way. If Richie is out 3 weeks, Gagne out for the year, Lupol out at least 2 more weeks, Downie out who knows how long, it might be time to "hope" we finish in the bottom 5 for draft position. Even if we turn it around and sneak into the playoffs, we have little hope with all these injuries.

I heard rumbles at the game last night that the Flyers were going after Hossa, Tangay, and Dan Boyle. I doubt any of those names will be coming to Philly after Richie's injury. Although, if we could get Boyle, I would do it. He is a #1 D-man in this league. Carter and a pick.

Chad, the good news is, giving up the tying goal with 3 seconds left and Richie being out 3 weeks is officially "rock bottom". Can't get any worse from here.

If the Flyers players believe that a trade or two will cure all their problems, they're probably misguided.

And that comes from their general manager.

Paul Holmgren doesn't deny he still has his “lines in the water” ahead of Tuesday's NHL trade deadline.

But he's already told the players that it's going to take more than the acquisition of a star player or two to turn things around and presumably get back in the playoff chase.

“We talked about that with the leadership group,” Holmgren said about a meeting he had with the veterans the other day. “The fact of the matter is, we may do nothing. They have to understand that, so stop looking around. Maybe you should look in the mirror.”

Granted, the Flyers are beat up right now, with three key players — Simon Gagne, Joffrey Lupul and Derian Hatcher — sidelined long term.

But if the players still standing think a Mats Sundin, Marian Hossa or Olli Jokinen is going to come here and save the day, they're mistaken.

Holmgren is the first to acknowledge that.

“We need to dig in deeper,” he said. “I'm not sure one player is going to make that big of a difference until the guys here start digging in, if in fact we get that one guy.”

As for the actual possibility of a significant trade, Holmgren continues to emphasize that he's not going to mortgage the team's future. Even if the weekend began with the Flyers mired in a nine-game winless streak.

“The competitive side of all of us (general managers) comes out when we get into a situation like this,” Holmgren said. “The team is struggling and you want to do something to jumpstart it maybe now.

“I think the idea is maybe we have to take a step back and be careful not to jeopardize what we believe to be a pretty good young team.”

Who knows? That just might be a smokescreen. Holmgren might be on the verge of a couple blockbuster deals. But again, he insists on the record he can't let mounting losses or injuries affect his thought process.

“As bad as we all want to win, we don't want to do anything that is going to hurt us next year or the year after that.”

Of course, at every trade deadline, a team's young players become targets. Holmgren said he wouldn't be foreign to dealing a young player ... as long as he gets a young player back.

“I don't know if we would be opposed with young for young,” he said. “Maybe a different position. Let's just say, a guy who's 34 in the last year of his contract, that's something we would probably steer away from.”

Jeff Carter's name has popped up in a number of trade rumors. Holmgren said he's not looking to trade Carter but didn't come out and say what would happen if he got an offer he couldn't refuse.

In other words, untouchable status isn't certain.

“We've had conversations with Jeff, there's no way we're looking to trade him,” Holmgren said. “He's part of our future. His play has been on track for a young guy, I think. And it continues to get better. There are stretches where there can be improvement but there's also stretches where he's taken bigger strides than we would have expected.”

Holmgren sees this two-week nosedive as more of a collective thing, not just a player or two.

“I think our team over the course of the season has relied on playing the game a certain way,” Holmgren said. “In my opinion we don't do enough little things well all the time to win on a more consistent basis. I think that's why we're in this slump. Far too many times we don't put the puck on the net. We don't chip it in deep and chase it. We try to make fancy plays inside the blue line. Sometimes the better play is to just get the puck out and up.

“The teams that are up in the standings do little things really well. We need to start doing that. I told the veteran guys that.”

Gotta love Homer! He gets it. he is a Flyer through and through. If I had a direct line to Homer I would tell him.... DON"T BUY. Unless of course he gets young for young (ie Carter for Boyle).
We have to remember, most of the key guys on this team are either in their first year or only have 1 year under their belt (Carter, Richards, Umberger, Coburn, Randy Jones, Downie, Parent, Kuk's, Cote, upshall, Tolpeko, Ruzicka). Let's also not forget, this team has turned over their entire lineup from last season. This entire team, for the most part, is playing together for the first time. Add to that all the injuries the ENTIRE SEASON, and this team has had little to no time to gel. I'm not making excuses, just telling facts. We all know how important it is for each line to gain chemistry. The fact of the matter is, with the injuries, the lines have changed so much since day 1 that they couldn't possible retain any chemistry together.
That said, this has been a disappointing streak. As a season ticket holder, I never once expected us to make a Cup run this season. I was hoping for a playoff birth but after last season and all the change, that was a 50/50 proposition. 10 games ago, I would have called you an idiot if you said we wouldn't make the playoffs. That's where the disappointment lies. However, if you told me we would lose Downie, Gagne, and Lupul for the season, and Braydon Coburn and Hatcher, and Scottie upshall would miss a bulk of games together, I probably wouldn't have called you an idiot for saying we'd miss the playoffs.

Back to the point..... Homer, sell whatever you can. This team is poised for the future. Don't f.uck it up by trying to appease this fanbase by making a foolish deal. No need to push the panic button for 2007 when this team is set up for a 10 year run.

So is Carter. Thats the reason Carter has been the subject of trade rumors all year. Going into the season, Richards, Carter and Umberger were all free at the end of the season. They have Richie locked in but there is fear that they can't keep Umberger AND Carter. If you have to choose who to keep, I'd keep Umberger over Carter.

phillybroncosnut
02-24-2008, 08:47 PM
I;m not so sure TB would do it. Part of the reason they will have trouble keeping Boyle is because they have so much tied up in Vinny, Richards and ST Louis. I think thats 80% of their cap # locked up in 3 guys. I doubt they will take Carter who will be looking to cash in this off season. They look like they will lose Prospal as well. I wish the Flyers kept Vaclav (vinny). I can't remember what we got in return for him. I think it was a deadline deal gone wrong.
If we go after Boyle, I am sure it will be for a Picard, or Parent and a pick or just straight up pick(s).

the cup win was the cause of the big contracts that are now criplling the team, richards signed his in 06, st louis signed his after the cup win in 05, not the result of the big contracts.

Still though, i don't think your team has an real identity yet. I think a few people need to leave IMO. Philly always has a strong and deep team, but each year there is always "something" missing. One year(more than not ;) ), it might be goaltending (seriously, how does Philly "break" so many goalies?), or maybe the D isn't just up to snuff, etc. I think if you move briere for hossa, one good thing would be, you could dump the contract that way. Hossa has 1yr left (this year) - so you could look at it as a sort of buy out. That would be a positive.

As good as Hossa is, i would not want the Pens to go for him. With contract renewals for Staal & Malkin, and who knows what's going to happen with Fluery (i'm assuming a renewal as well), the pens are going to go in the direction of having a solid core, and adding role players.

The Flyers have some really good core talent. I think Hossa just isn't what identity your team wants to go in. Granted you have briere, but that's the types of things I mean when i opened with the "identity" of your team.

It's why i'm excited about things with the Pens. I mean crosby is what, 20yrs old. He's only going to mature. That's why i don't care about the "whiner" label. I figure right now he's pissy, but hell i was a prick when i was 20... so how can i fault that, ya know.

I like richards on your team - and i think Umberger is a good player too.

I also think the front office moves for your team were way over due. As a pens fan, i wished bobby clarke would GM forever (ala carl peterson). But really, to win a cup you need clarke totally out of your team's affairs. That's an outsider telling you this, not out of anything other than i think he ****s it up.

I think gagne should be kicked to the curb too. I think he's over the hill. I also wished Primeau would have played for another team, i could have liked him then. ;)

I gotta admit, I have a soft spot for Danny after Saturday. I waited after the game with my so for autographs. Danny was the last one out and my son and I were the only one's left waiting. Danny took the time to joke around with my son. He also had a 5 minute conversation with me. I told him to keep his chin up and don't let the boo's get to him. he said something that shocked me. He said he doesn't blame the fans for booing. Danny said he needed to do alot more to help the team win. He also said that if he was a normal working guy who had to shell out $200 a game, he would boo to.
Danny was a humble, down to earth guy. Soft spoken, yet determined to get the job done. From here on out, he is now one of my favorite players. The whole story sounds corney, I know, but it is what it is.

I'm interested in finding out what you think is the deal we "need" to make
Is it a specific player or position? I like the Prospal deal. He should be immediately plugged in on the Briere line. Vinny has incredible vision and should be able to feed Danny. We will see how quickly the can gel. I think we need Defense but, defense is more of a system then a player. You can't just add the top defenseman in the league and all of a sudden become a defensive force. If the Flyers are seriously trying to win this year, adding one guy to the blue line won't make or break em.
I was kind of all around that deal huh? I was talking about Prospal and then said the Flyers would give up Picard and a pick for Boyle. I was So close.

up 2-1 after 2. They are playing sound team hockey the last 2 games. They are also limiting their turnovers. Jeff Carter and RJ have really stepped up their play as well. Carter has looked like the Keith Primeau we saw a few years ago in the playoffs. We need that right now.

Anybody watchin the rangers game? penalty festival thus far.

Great game today. Very entertaining. Both starting Goalies looked like chit. I think Biron just locked up the #1 the rest of the way. Thank god there is no shootout in the playoffs (if we make it). Biron might be the worst G ever in the shootout.
Carter is playing out of his mind. Another multi-point game today. It was very important getting a point today. I'll take a 3 point New York weekend. Big game coming Tuesday against Buffalo. Lets keep the offense going (and tighten up that D).

It should be interesting to see what Stevens does with the PP when Richie gets back. Braydon Coburn, who took over the point since Richie has been out scored a PP goal the last 2 games. Good problem to have.

2 things, 1st shoot outs still suck

2nd you should still not get a point for losing a game.

3rd we got out coached today, both goalies let in 3 questionable goals in the first period, one was smart enough to pull his, the other waited until the 4th goal was scored, also why the heck was boulerice playing not downie ? if they wanted boulerice in so bad they should have sat kappy, who brings nothing to the table, dotn get me wrong he still tries, but hes got hands of stone and the vision of stevie wonder, sounds just liek boulerice except he takes stupid penalties too.

I was wondering why Jesse was in and Steve was out. My speculation was, and this is merely a guess, Downie may have had a setback with his concussion. It was only the first or second game back from his concussion and he dropped the gloves. He took a couple of wicked shots to the head during a very good "punch in the face" contest. Again, it's a guess but I have no idea why you would play Jesse in favor of Downie.
I agree about shootouts. I would go 4 on 4 for 5 minutes, then 3 on 3 for 10 minutes. Someone will score within those 15 minutes and it would be as entertaining as the shootout and you would still keep the "team" eliment.

One last thing, Carter is still playing incredible hockey. We needed someone to step up and he sure as hell has.

More worrysome news.....

After the game last night, I was doing the normal waiting after the game for autographs with my son. Danny Briere pulled up and said hi to everyone and said he would sign for everybody but his shoulder was "killing me". After the cheap shot he took last night, I can imagine why. I'm not sure if that's the norm now after the injury in NY a week a go or if he re-aggravated it because of the cheap shot. With Richie, Gag's and Lupul out, we can't afford Danny to go down again.
Hopefully the shoulder feels better on Tuesday.

2 years away bro (if we get a legit Goalie at some point). They are very much like watching the Broncos this year. So much youth, so much upside talent, yet, they don't know how to finish wins. It's all good. I'm not sure if I even want them to make the playoffs at this point. I so want Stevens gone it's not even funny. If we make the playoffs, he will not get fired. If we collapse, he might. I want them to make the second season but I can't stomach the idea of another year with John focking Stevens.

A win today and we get the Caps in the first round. A loss we play Malkin and the Pens.

I really don't care who we play. Everything is a bonus from here on out. Making the playoffs after having the worst record 1 season ago is a hell of a turn around for this young team. Whether it's a 4 game sweep defeat or a 7 game series, this will be a learning experience for the young guns (Richards, Carter, Umberger, Upshall, Coburn, etc).

Disagree. Timonen, just like today, shut AO down in game 1. Kuk's had a bad turnover and AO made him pay. Gotta tip your hat to AO on that play. Other then that one play, Timonen has been in AO's sweater the first 2 games.

Call it homerism but I think we are the better team in this series. The only player that scares me right now with the puck (other then AO) is Green. Besides that, the Caps aren't much. It blows right now cause we should be up 2-0 coming home. Hopefully at some point we can look back at blowing that 4-2 3rd period lead as a good thing for us. Right now though, in a 1-1 series it is annoying thinking about it.

Okay.... In hockey mode now. Phillies won the championship. Broncos season is OVER. Time to focus on the Flyboys. The bad news is I am picking up where last season was. I had a hidious record in 25 regular season last season (8-14-3) and this year I am 0-2-1. Relax, I was 5-0 in the playoffs last season.
The D looks bad and the goalies have been just as bad. The 18 year old Sbisa has looked awesome and we need that (now and the future). Missing Randy Jones and ryan Parent has hurt the blue line. We have no cohesion on the back line and it has basically been guys trying to get used to each other with the loss of Jones and Parent. 4-4-3 is not a great start and I'm not thrilled with it but with our schedule out of the gate (ridiculously hard) and the injuries to Parent, Jones and Briere, 4-4-3 isn't the end of the world.
We should be fine for the stretch run and in position to get a middle to top seed in the playoffs.

Flyers acquired defenseman Matt Carle and the San Jose Sharks’ third round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Steve Eminger, Steve Downie and Tampa Bay’s fourth round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Don't know much about Carle but the front office loves his upside. I guess it's always good to get a promising young defenseman. The Flyers have had a good track record with trading for young promising defenseman (Braydon Coburn, Ryan Perant, and Randy Jones).

Hey Chad, and Hog.... The boys are freaking rolling now. Down 5-1 in the 3rd to the Canes and come storming back to win the game the other night and today, we destroy those bords that can't fly 5-2. Wait till Briere and Jones and Parent get back!!!

Speaking of Jones.... There have been rumors in both the paper and TV here.... Jones and Lupol for Jay Beumiester. I'd be shocked if thats all it took to get him. I'd do it in a heartbeat.

GO FLYERS!!!!

yup, hottest team in the league since the overtime loss to the flightless birds a month ago. only 1 regulation loss in the last 16, 2 points behind the rags for the division lead with 3 games at hand.

i think the family and i are gonna go to the december 27th game in columbus, were going down to myrtel beach for the week after christmas so its kinda on the way, and you can get a 4 pack of tickets for 100 bucks.

Yo Chad.... Any fallout in Canada about Richards not making the all star game? The Habs fans screwed alot of players. The Flyers had 4 guys that are absolute all stars..... Carter, Gagne, Timonen, and Richie.

I'm under the impression that Richie is a pretty big fan favorite up north. Any of the hockey talk stations up there pissed he didn't make it?

naw dood not a word, there has been talk about how fans voting is a joke in general just cuz of what the friggin frog fans did, but no player specific mentoned.

honestly i wish carter would skip it, they deserve a break, with all the injurys id rather them take time off then go play that stupid floater game.

the only good alstar game was lindros' first one ,when he threw the hit, i think thats the last hit ive seen in an alstar game.

Yeah... Got scary for a minute there in the 3rd. Briere's absence has been extended. he played 2 games with the Phantoms and passed with flying colors. The Flyers decided to let him play a 3rd game down there (basically to bide time to figure out what moves to make to fit room under the cap for Danny) and after the 3rd game he felt some discomfort in his groin. He is due to have exploratory surgery either today or tomorrow to see the ectent of the problem. I don't think that's such a bad thing. Let Danny get well for the playoff run. the 3rd line with all the kids (Giroux, Powe, and Upshall) is playing unreal.

Let's go FLYERS and ph uck all the frog fans who kept Richie, gagne and Timmonen out of the all star game.

The guy knew what he was getting into. He wanted payback for what Wesgarth did in the previous game back in November. I don't suspect Klotz will be gooning it up anytime soon, if at all.

It's about freakin' time...I've been hard on Marty's play this season, but the guy is taking it up a notch and playing solid when it counts.

Marty proved last season he can be a money goalie. I just hope it wasnt a fluke.
We have the offense, no doubt. Not 1 team is deeper then the Flyers offensively. I like our D as well, although there are times when I wonder what a couple of them are doing.
The question, as always with the Flyers come playoff time, will be goaltending. last year Biron stood on his freaking head. We just lost to a better Pitts team. We were also very very green.
This whole thing hinges on Marty. If he plays like he did last year, I'll be sitting at a Cup finals game this season.:thumbsup:

Currently sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia Flyers have had a relatively quiet, but successful season.

(Have any Flyers been suspended at all this season? Somewhere inside the NHL offices in New York, Gary Bettman is patting himself on the back after his talking-to of the team after last season's suspension party on Broad Street.)

Keep in mind that looking at the standings today, it might seem as if the Flyers are battling for that fourth spot at first glance; but they also have a couple of games in hand over the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, and Carolina Hurricanes, the teams chasing them.

With the way that goaltender Martin Biron has been playing of late (6-3 in his last nine starts, despite last night's loss to the Florida Panthers) and a now-finally healthy Daniel (sorry, Danny) Briere back in the lineup, that's enough to have the New Jersey Devils at least be looking over their shoulders a bit, should they slip up in the final nine games of the season.

Are the Flyers the best dark-horse contender in the Eastern Conference?

The return of Briere has now made an already deep Flyers lineup deeper and comes at the perfect time of the season as he told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun:

"That's been my focus, especially since the last surgery in January, my focus has been on the stretch drive and the playoffs," said Briere, who is in the second season of an eight-year deal. "The best part of the season is still ahead of me."

[...]

"We have three very dangerous scoring lines that can hurt you at any given time," Briere said. "With my comeback and the emergence of [rookie] Claude Giroux, it makes us a little more complete."

More complete, and with added firepower to the NHL's seventh highest scoring team.

With their deep lineup, the key cog in the Flyers playoff run will again be goaltender Biron. After years of playing the backup role in Buffalo, Biron is finally emerging as a solid No. 1 and experiencing the playoffs for the first time last season, he's again a contender for this year's annual "hot playoff goalie."

After dispatching the Washington Capitals in a first-round, seven-game series and then upsetting the number one seed Montreal Canadiens, Biron's gas tank ran out as Philadelphia was blown away by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final. With a year's playoff experience and an improved defense corps, including a healthy Kimmo Timonen, who's to say that the Flyers can't make a run again? This time though, not so surprisingly.

The 31-year old Biron will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, so you know he wants a raise from his current $3.5 million/year deal.

With the Flyers signing 27-year old Swedish goaltender Johan Backlund yesterday, it's Biron's crease to earn in the long-term -- if his play down the stretch can show the Philadelphia brass he's worthy of the investment.

I dont think trading Briere is the answer. Besides, he doesn't have the value that would bring in a Top tier Goalie. Besides, there are decent Goalies becoming FA's this upcoming season.

I hate saying this, but I am leaning towards believing we are one and done as well. The Pens are a TERRIBLE matchup for us. And, not having hoe ice will be a major factor in this series. The Pens and Devils were the 2 worst matchups for us. I'm not entirely doom and gloom but I hate it right now.

I don;t get it..you'll have to forgive me, I don;t get the gloom and doom. I don;t understand the 'it's over' crap that's festering all over the internet right now..

45-28-9, 99 points, 25-13-3 home, 20-15-6 away, 264 GF, 239 GA
44-27-11, 99 points, 24-13-4 home, 20-14-7 away, 264 GF, 238 GA

So someone tell me what makes the Pens so unbeatable? What makes them so worrisome?

Is it the win streak? Caps last year were the only team to go into the playoffs with more then 3 wins in a row...how'd they do?

The last 10 games they went 7-2-1 ohh so scary, right?

Beat the Kings, Flames, Rangers, Devils, Lightning, Islanders and Canadiens
OT loss to the Canes
and a loss to the Panthers and oh yeah Flyers.

3 game win streak? Lightning, Islanders, Habs forgive for not being impressed.

Is it MAF?

MAF: 62 games, 35-18-7, 2.67 GAA, .912 SV%, 4 SO, 1850 Shots
Marty: 55 games, 29-19-5, 2.76 GAA, .915 SV%, 2 SO, 1718 Shots

You'll have to forgive me for not getting on the blame Marty band wagon. For as up or down as the guy has been he sure hangs in with all the names people like to throw around by the numbers...

It sure as hell can;t be an issue with scoring - the Flyers are as deep as the Pens when it comes to putting pucks in the net..

Is it defense? Really would anyone trade the Flyers blueline for the Pens?!

In the immortal words of Charles De Mar
"Buck up little camper, we'll beat that slope together."



i did not write this post, it was written by rev bully of the o and b board, but it hits the nail on the head, both teams are so equal its gonna come down to who wants it more.
