Edit: did some stat checking and we DO have the top PP (at 27.9%).
We currently rank 3rd in 5 on 5 goals for/against ratio at 1.41.

Statistically, these first 15 games of the season have been awesome. Good job guys.

I always loved Pronger, when I heard we got him at the draft, I was literally jumping up and down.

Another thing I liked to see is the shots on goal differential improvement. We are second in the league in shots for per game, and 12th in shots against. I think we were in the bottom of both categories the previous two seasons.

I watched the TSN highlights.

I hate Pierre McGuire. "Maybe he'd help the Phillies win a World Series." Maybe you can shut the **** up. ****ing ugly piece of ****. You're bald! Oh, you're from Englewood Wood NJ. You ****in' Mets or Yanks fan. Suck Philadelphia's dick off, you ****. It's not even like anyone listens to his 2 cents he always throws into the mix.

I'd love to see someone hit him with a stick when he's "inside the glass." Get the **** out of here you con.

I hope you read this thread. Read this! I'll spit on you if I ever see you around here.

I don't get the Pierre Maguire hate, for the most part he knows what he's talking about and he is a big fan of our team (especially Cannon) and even has Emery has his hockey pool goaltender. He complimented us all night. I have no problem with him, but to each their own I guess.

Most important stat of the night: Flyers fans consumed 10,050 soft pretzels during $1 pretzel night.

Most people's problem with him is that he just doesn't know when to shut up. Other than that, he's usually right.

Not a Pierre fan myself, nothing to do with his hockey knowledge, more the fact he's creepy. The man does know his stuff, and he's a huge Richards fan which is cool.

I remember watching the TSN draft pool and laughed when he made that trade. Wasn't Ovechkin in the deal, I don't quite remember.

Right. I wasn't surprised to see Carter with 17 points and not like +12 or something. I was a wee bit surprised to see him at an even 0, particularly given JVR's +7. None of the stats in isolation is that weird for that line, but when you look at them all together they do seem a little odd.

I stuck to Crab Fries and beer, I am not a fan of pretzels.

$1 dog night was well over 20,000

I guess pretzels just are not as popular.

Ya I remember him giving up something significant, but don't recall who. It was a package deal

No sir. I remember you saying you were bald. Are you fully bald? Or do you have some hair still, like he does?

I have nothing against bald people. My good friend is bald. He looks better bald than with hair. No homo.

Not sure what fully bald means to be honest. I assume you mean on the top of my head, as in the 'horseshoe'. If so, then yes...I am fully bald. However, if I get lazy and don't shave my head for a while...I can grow a few whiskers up there.

It should be noted that grass doesn't grow on a busy street.

You know, just to state the obvious, if Irish was bald we couldn't prove he was a ginger.

You could, but I don't think anybody in their right mind would be willing to give it a try.
