Well 1st off, Lavy didnt coach all of 09-10 so you dont put it ALL under Lavy, especially since Stevens ****ed the team up for the 1st half of the season.

2nd thing is, points are fluky. You dont base performance off of how many points your team has.

Sigh... I guess ill post some stats.


305 Top 5 Total Points


348 Top 5 Total Points


278 Top 5 Total Points


329 Top 5 Total Points

And this is JUST top 5. Look at the rest of the roster. In 09/10, the #9 on the team in points was Giroux with 27. In the 10/11 roster, #9 on the team in points was Timonen with 37. See what Im saying? Once you spread the talent out, with more offensive weapons, you arent going to get more points.

Does that makes sense?
I think what he was getting at, was that your best players have to be your best players, and the two we've handed the keys to the franchise were not down the stretch, perhaps?

I simply want to see production for the $$$'s given out - Briere earns his come spring every year, Giroux turns it up, we found JVR turn it up this year, just conveniently inconvenient that Carter is injury prone once games get tougher and Richards has also shown that he can't stay healthy either the past few seasons...

I think they need to hit the weight room and bulk up personally. This team has gotten knocked around physically by teams this year, which shouldn't be the M-O of a Flyers team... Lappy called out Richie last year for being as built as his 8 yr old son for pete's sake.
