    Can we win a game tonight boys? well...I'll catch the highlights after the Phillies Game :D

    I may flip to it during commercials

    Their schedule is brutal to start the season

    Although with some effort they could have won 3 of those games

    Phils haven't started and it's already 4-4 in the Wac. Fun to watch, but can we win a track meet?
  • pretextpretext Posts: 1,284
    Well, right now the Flyers have 3 points and the Phils have 3 runs. Oy.

    Early in the season, but the highest scoring NHL game yet. Now to go about scoring without getting outscored...

    Thanks, man. Just for that, I'm sending bad vibes out to Saku Koivu so he pulls a Legace, and trips on a carpet during the pre-game puckdrop. :)

    Two in a row! They seem to be coming together as a team. The top three lines all were rolling. I only wanted to crosscheck Eminger in the face once or twice this afternoon. Biron isn't fighting it so much either.
    One thing I've liked all season is their willingness to keep playing the game. They don't give up after a goal the way they did two years ago.

    Now, time to move on to the Phils for a few days!

    3 in a row !

    Is the ship righted or is this just temporary ??

    Its going to take time with the new D-Man...they're young and new to the Flyers system

    They're doing the right things now. Forwards are backchecking. D are clearing the crease so the goalies don't have to fight to get every puck. I was really impressed with how they got their sticks in lanes last night. Forcing turnovers. Both goaltenders seem to have some confidence. Not taking as many penalties. Still taking the body. And still scoring.
    I have hope.

    I think the asking Price (haha) for Halak might be a bit more than what you guys will want to give up, but you never know I guess.
    I'm unfamiliar with Pavelec.

    Got him from Boston. He's usually decent enough.

    Meh. Just don't like 'em. I mean they're second in the league in goals scored, they just need to get some consistent play from the defense and goal.

    Give him some time, it's still early in the season and it's his first Flyers' season.

    Ondrej Pavelec is a Thrashers prospect. Came over to play junior hockey in the Q rather than stay in Europe. (C'mon Rygar, you don't know every player in the Q? What kind of Nova Scotian are you?)
    Highly regarded, but stuck behind Lehtonen. He was not happy after not making the team this camp. I think he's a better idea than Halak because we have a history of fleecing the Thrash in deals, and we have NO goalie prospects in the pipeline.

    I like Metro. He's versatile. That line's been on fire since Briere went down.
