I'm gonna go against the grain and hope that Downie gets beat down, and we score a goal that results from him screwing up.

"The crest on the front of the jersey..." yada yada yada.

GO FLYERS!!!

With their new owners apparently coming into the locker room drawing up power plays before their first game in Europe, you never really do know.

probably the most logical statement that'll go for one side or the other in the downie argument.

they have zero defense and weak goaltending, as well as zero team identity.

Seems like Tocchet wants to find what he has with depth at some forward slots but the D isn't a strong suit, either.

Mike Smith's 4th best save percentage equates to weak goaltending?

Man, what do you think of Marty?

Edit: He also has a GAA of 2.33, yet he's only won 5 of 17 decisions.

WRONG!

Goaltender - Mike Smith - 2.33 GAA / .932 SA%

As far as the Defense, they are right in the middle. 15th in GA and 16th in GAA.

The problem is they are 29th in goals.

they're 29th in goals because they can't move the puck. that lies in the defense. it's the same problem we've been dealing with the past few seasons (although it looks like that's finally on the up and up).

as for smith...my bad. i don't follow the lightening too closely. i stand corrected.

MSE, phenomenal once again and I, too, love the song choice.

I really, really, really want to see a win tonight. Reading through that GDT reminds me of how much I hate Tampa.

I think you Flyer fans are gonna get a good look at Stamkos's potential tonight. He has really played great the last couple games with increased ice time.

Oh my God, I love these jerseys!

And it sucks so much to see Downie in that jersey.

Been there. Seen it. He's amazing, but he can be contained. But I don't know how the Flyers are going to handle Vinny and Stamkos.
