Gratton was called back up today, Nodl sent down.

I assume they're going to dress 7 defensemen once Jones is back up next week. But until then it looks like we'll have the Dan line version 2.0 with Gratton/Powe/Cote this weekend. They'll be fun to watch. . . for the 3 minutes they're on the ice.

Nice. I think Gratton played good while he was up for Cote, and I'm glad he's getting another shot. Plus I'm excited as all hell to see him and Cote on the same line. Be afraid, be very afraid.

I'm cool with that. Asham earned the extra ice time lately and Nodl needs to find his scoring touch.

I'm concerned about facing Washington's backup tomorrow, though.

I'll be more concerned if they're facing the Flyers' backup.

For all extensive purposes I don't think we will see Nodl anytime soon, barring injury of course. They gave him a shot and he did okay but didn't do what they had brought him up to do...bury pucks.

He worries me a bit too. We all know how we do against backups.

Haha...I had to read that twice.

Fyi, it's "for all intents and purposes" I believe........ no offense.

Biron update...
Quote:

http://philadelphia.comcastsportsnet...59&feedID=695&

Marty Biron is still battling a flu bug. A number of players commented they were surprised it’s lingering this long. “I’ve known Marty a long time and I’ve never seen him this ill,” said Danny Briere. “He hardly ever gets sick. But he tells me he’s too weak.” Stevens said Biron showed up at practice and was sent home. … Stevens said given how well Antero Niittymaki feels getting all this unexpected work, he might play both ends of this weekend’s back-to-back games against the Caps and New Jersey. Backup Scott Munroe remains was sent to the Phantoms to play in their game Friday night but likely will be recalled for the Flyers’ game Saturday against Washington. … Briere (groin injury) skated again Thursday by himself and reported no problems.

Give one of the afternoon games to Munroe. To play back to back afternoon games is a lot to ask of your goalie in such a stretch, let alone the back up. Tell Marty to stay home until Christmas.

A couple of days ago I saw a headline that read "Map shows where people most likely to die." I was looking for the place of perpetual living but couldn't locate it.

Oh back at ya.

That's one person's opinion.

It's always one of the biggest issues. What hand? We lost, there is no hand.

From Philly.com:
Quote:
The Old City Line - Philly residents Carter, Hartnell and Lupul - scored six of the Flyers' seven goals and had 12 points.
Nickname or not?
