Some of the latest comments by the Flyers..Pronger seems the most annoyed
"What do you want us to do if they're not going to forcecheck?" Pronger asked rhetorically in a conference call from Naples, Fla., where the Flyers started a two-day bonding trip. ". . . If they want to just stand there, why would I want to skate into it? It's asinine to think so.
Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said "the onus to me comes to the person without the puck to get it back."
Laviolette didn't think the Flyers lost because of the trap, but because "we went to the penalty box too much and had costly turnovers."
Laviolette conceded that trying to penetrate into the Tampa Bay zone "was like throwing a pass into the end zone with 10 defenders on the goal line."
"At the end of the day, we're in the entertainment business, so the league will have to decide if they like it," said center Danny Briere, adding that the fans "lose" when forced to watch that type of game.
