For whatever reason this team has always had issues solving the Devils.

I fear the Flyers will allow more goals than they can score in this one...

Hiesenberg 03-10-2014 07:36 AM

Well Craig, your defense has given up like 4 or 5 goals in every game except for 1, since the break. Time for a shakeup, because its clear this defense isn't getting it done.

Grossmann probably just needs more ice time.

SolidSnakeUS 03-10-2014 10:05 AM

How bout we don't suck? Sound good? Yeah...

MiamiScreamingEagles 03-10-2014 10:08 AM

Downie is practicing (recovered from flu) and Emery is at practice though apparently listed as doubtful for tomorrow.

TheKingPin 03-10-2014 10:22 AM

Got to take Grossmann out for Gus. Have to

FlyersFan61290 03-10-2014 10:24 AM

He's a fun fact for you guys. For every 20 min of ES play by Grossmann the opposing team scores 1.006 goals. He averages 19 a night, obviously there's some pk time in there as well.

So with him on the roster, its almost a guaranteed fact that the Flyers will not get a shutout.

:laugh:

Well he only gets ~16:30 of ES min per game so not quite that bad. And the Flyers do have 4 on the season so there's that.

Lol that's so terrible.

Striiker 03-10-2014 11:52 AM

I'm gonna go ahead and call that Grossmann leads the team in icetime tomorrow. And Gus will be forced to clean his car.

dats81 03-10-2014 12:53 PM

Can we stop the whole Gus for Grossmann discussion for now?

The only chance for Gustafsson to ever hit the ice again this season is a major injury to any of their PMD. Berube will never play him instead of Grossmann or Schenn. It just ain't happening... never ever...now way.

im not so sure. i can easily see the flyers showcasing mez for the deadline and being ok with him in as he was pretty productive. I can also see how gus sits now that macdonald is here. But there is a chance that he goes in for grossmann. It is a lower chance than him going in for mez but is still a chance imo. If the schenn grossmann pair gets much light they are going to be horrible, hopefully opening a window.

Games against the Devils are the games I least look forward to. :pout:

Berube doesn't seem like a very flexible coach.

I wish he would adapt more to how his players are playing and try new things. Instead it's just always play the match ups, keep the same lineup and split the ice time the same (especially on the PP, tired of seeing the 2nd unit kill more than a minute on important PPs).

Some new lines when players like Hartnell, Vinny, Grossmann and Downie are struggling wouldn't be a bad idea, it can confuse other teams and you might find chemistry you wouldn't have otherwise found. It would be cool to get a look at Schenn or Vinny with Giroux since Hartnell's apparently forgotten how to shoot. Or hell, even just doubleshift Giroux once in awhile when we're down in the third.

The regular season is the time to experiment, but we've kept the same lines (with very minor adjustments) for most of the season so not really expecting anything to change down the stretch.

Scott Fartsmell 03-10-2014 04:54 PM

I agree, changing the lines up a bit could be a good thing. I would like to see some shuffling of the defensive pairings to be honest.
