Looking forward to a solid effort here. Ill be the first one to give Props if Marty puts together a solid effort.

Now if I can just get ol' tea cup to stop referring to a stationary d-man as a "Hatcher"! How about a Marsh....or a Wilson

Very nice GDT!

Avalanche blue is darker than that, though

The Avs are exactly as advertised: pretty strong up front, with three lines that can put pucks in the net, average-to-weak on the blueline and weak in net. The Flyers' forwards should be able to jump all over Colorado's defence and goaltender, but the same could be said about the Avs' forwards.

This one could be a sloppy game; hopefully Biron comes to play tonight.

If you guys were in a pool where goals were worth 2, assists worth 1 point, who would you start... Lupul or Knuble?

I agree with your assessment, the Avalanche will score some goals this year, I think their scoring might be a bit underrated since Sakic and Smyth and Stastny missed large chunks of last season...but I don't like their defense and their goalie tandem might be worse than the Kings and that says a lot.

I think this game is going to be high scoring (around 7 goals). I'm fading Raycroft for the big payday. I hope you guys stick it to them and win this. Should be a good one!

I see we're on pace to finish 27 points ahead of Colorado. This game won't even be close.

Line changes tonight per the Flyers site

Quote:
The most notable change was shifting Joffrey Lupul to the center position, with Steve Downie and Scott Hartnell as his wingers. Glen Metropolit skated between Riley Cote and Arron Asham Thursday morning.

"It's something I was thinking about the other day," explained Stevens. "He stands out, to me, that when he gets the puck in the middle of the ice he skates really well almost like [Jeff] Carter. He's good in the open ice."

"I like the idea. You get the puck a little more, which I'm looking forward to," said Lupul, who admittedly has not played center since juniors. "I understand the position. I'll going contunue to work on my faceoffs and my positioning, and I don't think it will take to long to get the hang of it."
Biron is starting

we need a center who can win more draws, not loose more

But I like the general idea

I got one more Steel Reserve left that I'll be cracking open for this game. The ol' 211 will bring us luck, just you watch. No lab tomorrow so, booyaa. If we need more luck I'll drink more. Don't try and stop me, I'm taking it for the team. We WILL win this.

Thing is, even though Knuble sucks, Carter is scoring. The third line needs the most help because Metro's done nothing for those two guys.
