Someone had to go down. And if Homer adds another D, Bourdon will be joining him.

OriginJM 02-17-2012 10:52 PM

Great job on your first NHL goal!

Have fun with the Phantoms.

Beef Invictus 02-17-2012 10:52 PM

There is no Erik Gustafsson.

Lilja can sit in the press box without fear of losing his mediocrity. Gustaffson should continue to play.

Hockeypete49 02-17-2012 11:14 PM

I was once down on the kid. But his play has changed my mind. He has a future here. His time will come as long as he keeps on improving his game. Maybe by the time Kimmo retires he will be ready to make the jump.

turkinaa 02-17-2012 11:31 PM

I'm guessing with Mez and Gross he was the best option to have sent down rather than be a healthy scratch. Whoever keeps saying the staff prefer/has more faith in MAB I think has been pretty much proven.

SolidSnakeUS 02-17-2012 11:59 PM

Boooo. But thanks for a lot Gus.

Mosetter27 02-18-2012 12:13 AM

UGHH!H!!! are you serious one of the guys I was ecstatic to meet at the carnival!!!! first harry now gus lemme guess Rinaldo is getting sent down after the pens game!

GoneFullHextall 02-18-2012 12:44 AM

going to the game on Sunday. Pretty shocked by this news. Lavi does like Bourdon.

Alchemy 02-18-2012 06:00 AM

He is physically outmatched at the NHL level.

mirimon 02-18-2012 11:08 AM

It's better he's with the Phantoms than in the press box. I hope we give him a few games down the stretch though. Keep him up to speed with the NHL game, and give Bourdon a rest once in a while.

Damaged Goods 02-18-2012 11:12 AM

Yep. Knew it was coming with Bourdon getting 20:00 of ice time last game. Glad he got his first NHL goal before he was sent down. Hopefully he gets his game back on track, perhaps they'll call him up for the playoffs.

JDinkalage Morgoone 02-18-2012 11:12 AM

It's not like we traded him, folks. He'll be back up in due time.

Gustafsson only turned 23. Kimo really didn't establish himself in the league until he was 26. Gustafsson has lots of time to get his overall game in shape. People also need to realize that physically, he's 15 pounds less than Kimo. The weight will come in due time and when it does, he'll be a more effective defenseman.

I still think he's the second coming of Kimo. Kimo was terrible defensively his first few seasons in the league. However, once Kimo added the 15 pounds and once he learned the nuances of the game, he really began to excel. There's no reason why Gustafsson can't either. It's clear that he has the skill the play. Once he gets the weight added to his frame, he'll be able to handle the game physically.

GKJ 02-18-2012 12:04 PM

The Flyers are doing what the other 29 NHL teams do, and that's use their farm system for its intended use.

so because he may be going along the same career bath as Timonen, he's the next Timonen?

Who the hell has ever said or even keeps saying he is the next Timonen?

I apologize on his behalf. Gustafsson at best is Carle, at worst is Randy Jones.

That said, it's only one person who said it.
