Twofold Question.

  1. Training camp is rapidly approaching, so I think now might be a good time to get our thoughts out there as to who will win what team awards at the conclusion of the season. This way, we can all act surprised when Hatcher wins the Ashbee a second time.
  2. Who are your top five favorite Flyers going into next season? This list can include anyone the Flyers have recently acquired, anyone that was on the roster previously, or even the prospects. I only ask this question because I want to know which one of you have Briere listed.

-----------------------------------

Barry Ashbee Trophy - Kimmo Timonen
Bobby Clarke Trophy - Simon Gagne
Yanick Dupre Memorial - Mike Knuble
Pelle Lindbergh Memorial - Braydon Coburn
Toyota Cup - Simon Gagne
Gene Hart Award - Sami Kapanen

1. Jason Smith
2. Lasse Kukkonen*
3. Mike Richards
4. Sami Kapanen
5. Scottie Upshall

*The way he played last year, I don't think I've ever seen a Flyer defenseman play that well in his own end.

Barry Ashbee Trophy - Kimmo Timonen
Bobby Clarke Trophy - Simon Gagne
Yanick Dupre Memorial - Mike Knuble/Scott Upshall
Pelle Lindbergh Memorial - Braydon Coburn
Toyota Cup - Simon Gagne
Gene Hart Award - Mike Richards

1. Simon Gagne - I just always liked him, I think he's ready to lead this team
2. Mike Knuble - A real Blue collar, "bring your lunch pail to work" type of guy, a true Flyer
3. Scott Upshall - (see #2 above, built in the same mold), I really like his work ethic
4. Braylon Coburn - I think he's a future #1 dman in the making and am anxious to see his progression
5. Kimmo Timonen - he's going to be a rock on the back line for us, he will most likely have the greatest impact on our success/failure out of all the new faces we've brought in (with the possible exception of Biron.

HM - Marty Biron

I chose those 5 (6) because I'm not only anxious to see them play again but I don't think they will at any point in the next season make me say "Oh GOD D***IT, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" I think all of them will put forth their best effort every night and every shift and if crap happens while they're on the ice, oh well, I'll take the good they bring every other shift over sitting them for any minor screwups they might have (arrent passes, stripped pucks, etc.). Guys like Carter and Lupul will leave me cheering one minute and cursing another in part because they have so much potential to really impact/control the game but they'll miss the net or not compete 100% every shift. They'll make me both excited and frustrated in the same game.

Once again, thanks rayearth.

Barry Ashbee Trophy - Timonen
Bobby Clarke Trophy - Briere or Gags
Yanick Dupre Memorial - Knuble or Biron (Buffalo fans are still talking about what a great guy Marty is)
Pelle Lindbergh Memorial -I would hope for Richards or Carter, but I'm going to go with Upshall or Coburn
Toyota Cup - Briere or Gags
Gene Hart Award - Richards or Kapanen

Sorry, it was too hard for me to choose just one in each category. Just like it'll be nearly impossible for me to pick just five favorites, 'cuz even when they $uck, I still love 'em all (well, maybe not Peppermint Fatty, but you get what I am saying):


1. Mike Richards.
2. Marty Biron---anyone who trash-talks the chosen one on national TV has to get a big nod from me.
3. Mike Knuble--all heart
4. Scottie Upshall
5. Daniel Briere--probably shouldn't pick someone who hasn't played a game for us yet, but I really think he and Simon are going to be one of the best top lines in the NHL. FLYERSPEED

Barry Ashbee Trophy -Timonen
Bobby Clarke Trophy -Gagne
Yanick Dupre Memorial - Kapenen
Pelle Lindbergh Memorial -Jeff Carter
Toyota Cup -Gagne
Gene Hart Award - Kapenen

1. Upshall-he is so fun to watch
2. Biron-funniest guy in the NHL
3. Gagne-Gagne
4. Eager-crowd pleaser crazy mo fo
5. Kukkonen- a really good potential top Defensice dman

I too need to see players like briere, Lupul, Smith, Timonen play.

I really hope my prediction comes true with Carter and the Lindberg trophy although id rather have him have a avg year, sign a long term deal and then break out next year when we have more of a shot anyway but i fear that he is running out of time.
