That's what I love about this board. The Flyers lose a few games to bad teams and it is their true colors coming out and they are clearly not that good. Next week they'll beat a few good teams badly and everyone will be saying OMG this team is so good THIS IS THE YEAR! Then they'll drop two in a row and everyone will say ugh these guys are bums who don't care and will never win a Cup. Then they'll win and they are great.
You gotta look at the big picture here. A small sampling of games is not indicative of the overall performance or future performance. It is just a stretch of games. If they play ****** for the remainder of the season, then you have to worry. But a stretch of 10 games (or even more) where you aren't playing well but still managing to win games is not panic time.
