There has to be SOME reason this team is not playing as a team?
If the problems with this team were simple and obvious enough that a fan on the outside of the organization could confidently diagnose them, then they would most likely be fixed by now.

There's probably a lot of smaller things going on.

- Tuning out John Stevens.
- Adjusting to the new coach.
- The addition of some strong personalities to a locker room who's culture appeared to be more laid back.
- Playing with an injured goalie for too long.

All probably decent guesses. And who knows, maybe they're banging each others' wives.

Isn't that good for team chemistry, the whole being eskimo brothers thing?

It's good to know that, along with the Canadians, the Swedes have mastered the art of the strongly worded letter.

Actually Devils and Rangers mods I'll give credit to. I remember the Devils board, people were discussing Brodeur, forget the exact topic, and I said I thought that after Brodeur retired, the "system" would have to drastically change, because he's their star player, finding another star goalie like him is practically a one in a million draw, and since they've based themselves around him being in net, there would have to be changes.

A good amount of Devils fans were completely irate, cursing me off the board, but the mods came through and said "You know, he actually has a really good point." and backed me up. Rangers mods have been nice to me too on their boards, especially considering that I live in Devils/Rangers territory and I can (slightly) relate to the teams.

If they don't show up to play tonight, that's very telling, considering how many of their butts are on the line

I want to see 100% effort even if we lose 5:1

I want to see Coburn on 3rd paring and Parent playing with Timonen

I want to see Carcillo back with Betts and Lappy taking a few shifts against Malkin and Crosby lines.

I want to see Pronger playing tough against Malkin.

I want to see Carter and Richards playing like they care.

I do not want to see penalties from Coburn, Briere or Hartnell.

We are 4 points our of 8th playoffs spot with at least 3-4 games in hand..

People who tell other people to "stay classy" should be exterminated. Just my opinion.

The first point, especially. I'd gladly take a 5-1 loss if it meant they played well and actually tried.

Well I'll be there tonight. I feel slightly better about this game, but maybe it's the Christmas spirit haha. I hope they at least show up, or else I'm coming after them with a pitchfork and fire. And I'm still contemplating it, but I'm seriously thinking about wearing the snuggie to the game. Jumbotron here I come!

And as far as that seventyone troll, I can't say enough good things about him. I mean in my almost two years on this board, the Flyers and their fans are THE only team I've ever seen him talk bad about, in just about every thread he's posted in. Cut the guy a break. At least we don't have to hear him **** on any other team.

Oh, and about the Pens troll. If I posted on the Pens board legitimately, not trolled, I would have been banned from HF already, solely because I'm a Flyers fan.
Procrastination from finals studying + heaps of coffee = late night banter with idiot Penguin trolls. Also, some idiot statements made by myself caused by the delirium of no sleep.

Agreed. Just show me some effort. That's not too much to ask, is it?
