Marty's is a recap but it's good to hear he is helping a young team like the Canes.

I'm always root for Flyer grads to do well. Except for Forsberg. And when they play TOO well (Prospal) it kind of makes you curse Clarke for trading them in the first place.
The article mentioned Staal scored as well. Anyone know if he's going to start in the big leagues this year? And who else of this year's picks are going straight to the NHL based on camps?

Murray was a nice player, but guys like him are a dime a dozen.

Murray was a nice player, but guys like him are a dime a dozen.I have to agree.
Claude Lapointe is a much better player than Marty.
Marty is Manderville with some offensive abillity.
Good to see him doing well though. I always really liked the guy. He worked harder or as hard as everyone else on the team, and really get everything out of himself.

I think Marty got a raw deal in Philly. His numbers are quite good considering his ice time and who his line mates were. I used to say he was he most underrated player on the Flyers. I think his problem is that he never had a well defined role. He didn't play great defense, he was too small to play an effective physical game (like Lapointe). What he has is good agility, creativity and hockey sense. His style is more suited to a top six forward, only he simply wasn't good enough to warrant kicking anyone we already have off the top two lines. So he was stuck getting less than 10 minutes a night with guys like Fedoruk and Sacco, and could never really show what he was capable of.
