Please.

I love Ross as well. Hes got 3rd liner, maybe more on him. The best part is, hes playing his role great right now.

Think about, Cote played on the 4th line too

Powe is awesome, his tag team Crosby check today was priceless. My girlfriend's boss knows Powe and his family and I apparently am going to get a chance to meet him after the playoffs when he comes home. Hopefully he brings a big shiny cup with him.

He managed to hold on to a spot in the lineup all year (through injuries etc,) and earn a spot on the 3rd line in the playoffs. Dude has brought it all year.

60 Games
6 Goals.
5 Assists.
11 Points
35 PIMs.

Not bad numbers for playing 4th line minutes. And played a bit on the PK. Guys good. I love him playing on the 3rd line with Giroux. They play great together.

i think i might be the only one that doesnt like powe and giroux together. With briere on the other wing, that line is too small. I feel like anyone playing with giroux will have good chemistry. Powe has filled the role upshall had. Powe is a fourth line center who will play pk minutes. Even though hes twenty three, he doesnt have the high ceiling like other prospects.

I hope grioux stays at center. I feel like if he moves to the wing he wont have the puck enough. I think giroux and gagne will have good chemistry.

i definitely see a little of upshall in powe. he has untapped offensive skill and he seems to develop chemistry easily (upshall, carcillo, briere, giroux have all looked good with him). he's a perfect player for the bottom-6.

Yea I agree with that, he may be a little faster and be a little stronger on the puck though.

I loved Darrol Powe since the first time i saw him at rookie camp a few years back. It was obvious that he had some potential and was clearly one who stood out.

The Flyers have a gem in this guy. He's no all star but these are the types of guys you need to find to win. I see the exact same thing in Kalinski as well. It's a shame that injury was so serious for him this season

Powe has really impressed me, especially in the playoffs. He's really made a name for himself on the team. Hope we get to keep him.

i like Powe on the wing, of the 3rd line

Simon Gagne-Mike Richards-Scott Hartnell
UFA-Jeff Carter-Claude Giroux
Powe-UFA-Arron Asham
Riley Cote-UFA-Dan Carcillo

Kimmo Timonen-Ryan Parent
Braydon Coburn-UFA
Luca Sbisa-Andrew Alberts
UFA

this would be my dreamline-up, minus Danny Briere and Joffrey Lupul up front, (atleast Lupul gone) and Jones & Carle on the blueline (Jones moreso). Have a true shut down line, with someone potentially like Pahlsson, Malhotra or Marchant centering it (they're all good on face-off and can kill penalties). Ross could probably center the 4th line, or maybe even Matsumoto if he's responsible enough defensively, or we could just sign a UFA (Scott Nichol or Vernon Fiddler maybe?). There's some decent top 4 d-men (potentially) available as well to play along side Coburn, like Beauchemin, Montador, Skoula, Komisarek (the more I see him, the more I dont like him though), Zanon....and of course Bouwmeester

When they were on the same line upshall outplayed him, imo. He's being hyped up way too much here. Powe reminds me of Tyler Kennedy. Same style of play. He throws his weight around, but he takes more punishment than he gives. He would be best suited as a fourth line center and on the pk.

His play makes what happened with Uppy & Metro a lot easier to swallow.

I think he has established himself as a very important part of our team now and going forward. It's not because he's a great producer or anything but more that he's the perfect utility guys. He's our new RJ Umberger. He's a player who will probably spend most of his time on the 4th line but when we have injuries or someone not playing up to THEIR potential, Powe is a player we can plug into any position on the 2nd and 3rd lines. He doesn't have the touch to play on the PP but he definitely has the hustle to play on the PK.

He has grown on me so much. Down at school, I've only watched maybe a quarter of the games (whatever streams available / versus) but now that I'm watching him consistently he stands out a lot. He has speed and grit, and throws his body. He's a fantastic role player. I would love to see a line of Gagne-Giroux-Powe, and then put Richie and Briere together.

I think there's a pretty decent chance he becomes the regular 3rd line center next year. He's definitely got a bit of Upshall in him but he's better defensively and plays all three forward positions.

the guy busted his ass all season and stepped it up in the playoffs that's why he was out there in pk situations and got a good amount of ice time... the guy earned his spot unlike some of the other guys on this team during the playoffs

Powe is the perfect fourth liner on a winning team. He'll go out and work hard, stay even up, and chip in the odd goal here and there. Combine all that with being a good penalty killer and you've got an excelent role player.

He had a great shift last night when he first took the puck into the O-zone and then hustled back and took it again.
Showed amazing speed during that shift.

He's definitely one of my favorite Flyers. I wouldn't mind having him around for the next few years. Very gritty.

Regular 3rd line center? Won't that be Giroux or at least Briere?

I do expect him to be getting top 9 minutes though. Even if Lupul is back (I hope not) and Knuble re-signs on the cheap (doubtful), I think Powe earned a spot on our 3rd line over Carcillo or anyone else.

I'd rather them pare down the offense to two really great lines, a solid 3rd line, and a standard 4th and use the cap space to fix the defense and goaltending.

Two scoring lines with a traditional third and fourth line means two lines made up of Carter, Richards, Gagne, Hartnell, Briere, and Giroux. They'd be selling themselves short if they went that way, even though letting an aging Knuble walk, and trading Lupul, for cap reasons mostly, makes sense regardless of which way the Flyers go lines-wise. The depth they have at forward easily makes three scoring lines possible.

Gagne with Richards and whoever works, bring Knuble back if possible. Nobody here should blame him if he goes after one last big paycheck though. Otherwise, Kalinski, Ross, Powe, Nodl, and even Asham are possibilities. They have plenty of options.

Carter with Hartnell and someone fast that can skate with Carter works.

That leaves Giroux and Briere. If they can get a center that's great on faceoffs with some size, this would probably be the Flyers best line. Giroux might be the best forward on the Flyers this time next year.

There's three lines with likely two 30 goal scorers on each one. Stacking the lines would solve none of their problems and unnecessarily weaken a strength.

I'm not arguing this because I really like Giroux, but the Flyers do have an 80 point Selke finalist, and a guy who scored 46 goals, not to mention Gagne, who really bounced back well after last year.
