Wow Syvret and OKT both under 9 minutes. I wonder what will happen if someone else will get hurt, and Stevens will have no choice but to expose them to top-4 minutes.

I had commented earlier that Syvret hardly sees the ice and was ripped by someone. Theres been a few games where the 3rd pair has seen more like 12-13 minutes, but in the beginning of the season there is zero reason for your 3rd pair to be getting less than 10 minutes a night on the ice. Stevens is running our top 4 into the ground a month into the season

Great post! I think that although Carter and Briere are both skilled , they look awful together two completely different styles. The top line of Richards missed there assignments a couple of times and Syvret is just not a capable d-man. He took a bad penalty, he failed to clear the zone on several occasions and easily flusters and throws the puck in the middle of the ice regularly. On the plus our PP was awesome to watch we threw the puck around and got a lot of point pressure. Coburn, yes Coburn looked good from the shooting position.

Carle-Pronger
Parent-Timonen
Coburn-OKT
Syvret

This actually looks solid. Coburn has his moments, but right now he's kinda dangerous up there. And for all we know Coburn-OKT could work great together, but they must play 10-15 minutes a game.

No, we can't trade Parent

I see it as Stevens getting Holmgren back for taking Jones away from him

Hopefully Holmgrem gets Stevens back by firing him.

Snider says no, Stevens is like a son to him.

But the players can take care of things, and he'll exit much like the way Hitch did

There's no reason the 3rd pairing shouldn't get at least 10 minutes. ESPECIALLY against a one line team like Washington. Even if Ovie's line get's 30 minutes, split that among our top 2 pairings, and they are only at 15 minutes each.

On the road, against an opponent like Washington, is the type of game where the third pairing would normally get less than 10 minutes. Every defensive zone faceoff would require the Flyers to send out either the first or second pairing so the Caps can't start with Ovechkin on the ice with Syvret and OKT in an attacking scenario. Doing this inevitably reduces the third pairing minutes.

Disagree completely on Carter with Briere - and JVR. Briere's playmaking and ability to sneak into spots complements Carter's speed and JVR's vision perfectly. JVR made about 6 world class passes last night, in addition to being a natural in front of the net on screens. The kid's all right, leave him with Jeff and Danny.

Svyret's time is up if/when Randy J. clears waivers. And when Parent's back, Tolly sits too. We can't keep playing Pronger 30 minutes... so if we can't trust the 3rd pairing to play 12-14 minutes on the road they have to go.

Actually, I kind of hope that they'll reunite Carter/Briere/Hartnell and then put the two "kids" with Richards.

JVR and Giroux had obvious chemistry, and the same goes with Giroux and Richards. I think that could be interesting

Well that was a frustrating game. We can never seem to score down low when the goaltender is scrambling. Just put the puck in the damn net! *loses mind*

Our defense played well atleast. Capitals were lucky that they hung on in the 3rd.

5-4-1

Either way works for me. It's early in the year, we have a lot of new guys. Keep mixing them up until we have it right. JVR and Giroux are going to have to be in the top lines for now, with Gags gone.

I regret not bringing my "Caps Fans -- Est. 2007" sign to the game last night. What a bunch of bandwagon-hopping fanboys. They also have a massive inferiority complex when it comes to matching up with Flyers fans. It's pretty pathetic, but in a highly amusing way. Speaking of pathetic, the Flyers managed to outplay the Caps for a better part of the game, but a few crucial breakdowns (Ovechkin left open 10 feet from the goal... really?!?!) and that filthy wrister from Semin in the 3rd did us in. I don't have much confidence in this team when they play the cream of the crop, and that's a major concern.

To be fair, Pronger did play a whole PK last night.

The pairings were:

Pronger-Timonen
Coburn-Pronger.

He's a man-beast. But he's going to be dead by Christmas.

I finally got to see JVR up close last night for the first time since catching his first college game (BU vs UNH at BU, Nov. '07). The kid just oozes talent and it's obvious he's going to be a force once he gets comfortable at the NHL level; he made a lot of heady plays and was heavily involved in game action on pretty much all of his shifts. JVR has size (which he's finally using), impeccable hands, and innate play-making ability. It's going to be fun watching him and Giroux develop into world-class players that can complement (and maybe even surpass) Richards and Carter up front.

Side note: A bunch of Flyers players' dad were at the game last night (easy to spot when there are older men wearing OKT and Powe jerseys), sitting a few rows in front of me. I was wearing my Giroux jersey and managed to meet his father on the concourse. You could tell how happy he was that someone was wearing his son's jersey -- he was just teeming with pride. He seemed awe-struck by the entire experience -- like he was living in a dream world. We had a friendly exchange and I made sure to tell him how lucky the Flyers were to have Claude. A really genuinely nice guy.

I agree.

We are only at the end of October. There is no need to burn out Pronger this early. He is going to be dead, by April.

A touching story...


Laperriere carries Dad's spirit years after cancer battle
Quote:
Philadelphia Flyers right wing Ian Laperriere saw his teammates gather with their fathers for a group photo following a recent game and felt his heart ache.

The Flyers conducted their annual Father-Son road trip to Washington this week, and although more than six years have passed since his father lost his valiant battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 55, Laperriere still feels his loss.

"It was hard when he passed and it's still hard today," the 35-year-old Laperriere said. "I still wish he could be here."

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and with the NHL's "Hockey Fights Cancer" campaign under way, Laperriere often reminds his teammates how fortunate they are to have their fathers.

"I tell the young guys, 'Enjoy, I wish I could do that with my dad now.' When you're young you don't think you're ever going to lose your dad. So I tell them to enjoy him because you never now what can happen."

A former football and hockey player, Michel Laperriere was 52 and enjoying dinner with Ian and his wife, Magali, when Ian first noticed his father's skin was discolored.

"I remember it like it was yesterday," Laperriere said. "We were in my house having dinner and I turned around and said, 'Dad, your skin's yellow.' My Mom said, 'I told you, Michel.'"

Michel Laperriere met with a specialist two days later and was told he might have cancer of the pancreas.

"That shocked everybody, but as a doctor you just can't sugar-coat it," Laperriere said. "Unfortunately, the doctor was right. It was one of those moments you don't wish on anybody, but it's part of life, I guess. You always think that happens to other families and you don't want to think it can happen to you."

I think many people have stories like that. Cancer is no fun to deal with. Watching friends, and family members suffer with that disease is no fun.
