    I don't really know what to make of all these trades except I'm hardly convinced the franchise has improved their situation. Anyone see the Sabres' Athletic writer absolutely shredding of Ristolainen? That has the potential of being an all-time worst trade for the franchise.

    And getting rid of Ghost - at least when Bobby Clarke got rid of Brad McCrimmon for nothing he didn't trade away draft picks too. This seems like a 70s Eagles situation when Dick Vermeil started and they had no 1st 2nd or 3rd round picks for 3 years or something. Somehow he still got them to a Super Bowl, as the favorite! So maybe it will all work out.  :i_dunno:

    It wasn't working despite the talent, as it was...so I can see making changes.  Some of them are head scratchers...and I did read that Athletic article.  Not pretty!
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    Ristolainen is an interesting case.  He can come out and look like an absolute beast and stud... but then become a giant liability for a long stretch.

    The Sabres did depend on him to do too much.  They plugged him in for a lot of minutes, and the depended on him to provide like 95% of their physical play.  Its really hard to make evaluations of Sabres players with how bad its been, and how many years of completely meaningless games Ristolainen has endured there.  With that said, has like 8 years of meaningless games made Ristolainen into a challenge to motivate?  

    He also is a UFA after this season.  So if its one year, then he peaces out, the trade looks pretty bad too.  I think its tough to sign now because I dont think you really know what youre getting until you see him play for a real team.  If he starts looking like a stud, he might be more likely to want to hit the open market.

    Crazy story coming out about Flyers.  Vigneault, Fletcher and training staff could be in some serious trouble.  Not good

    Accused of giving Nolan Patrick and possibly other players non prescribed medications.  If proven true someone is going to take a big fall.     It probably happens in most pro teams locker rooms but not a good look

    Robin Lehrer has balls, finally someone is speaking up.  Why are people surprised the Flyers are involved.  The Lindros family was none too happy with the Flyers medical team.
  • MayDay10MayDay10 Posts: 11,026
    Is it even the same medical team as 20-25 years ago?

    I think its pretty clear he is having some sort of public manic episode and needs help before he goes off the rails too far.  He is the Ritchie Incognito of the NHL.

    wow, yeah that's pretty crazy.  Season starts in a week. Just hoping the Flyers do better than they did last year and Carter Hart rebounds from a not so good year.
