Gagné-Brière-Carter
Hartnell-Giroux-JVR

That's my top two lines and Richard is the third center cause is not able too control the puck like Brière and Giroux. Brière did that in Buffalo and did'nt have tallented shooter like Gagné and Carter at this time.

When the coachig staff will anderstand that wacht out!!!!!!

Again sorry for my bad English! And go Flyer!!!!
In theory I agree with you, but every time I've actually seen him play right wing it's been horrible.

This team needs to learn how to score under Laviolette's system, and to play it with intensity and speed. It's an aggressive, risky system, so they're not going to do that trying to play mistake free hockey. It's going to require an awful lot of monumental screw ups along the way before their judgment improves.
Worst team in the league? Carolina says hello. They only have 9 wins (6 few than us) and 24 points (8 few than us). I think it's fair to say they are the worst. But don't feel to bad we are number 2.

I think we're gaining on them though. It appears to be a goal of this team to get Anaheim as high a lottery pick as possible. They're doin' a bang up job so far.

What's the over/under on a Hartnell 2 minute stick infraction?

That's the worst part. When the season's over we won't even be able to draft a reward for all this crappy play.

At what point did you realize this season was a wash? For me it was that game in San Jose where Heatley and Thornton were allowed to do whatever they wanted offensively. Pronger tripping over his own feet didn't help the cause.

The one guy I feel bad for in this debacle is Emery. The guy was given a chance to come in and be a number 1 goalie again and up until his injury he was playing well. I'm sure the thought of "I came back to the league for this?" has his crossed his mind more than once. If I were him I'd come back from the injury,try to finish the season strong,and then look for the best option outside of Philadelphia.

I'm still holding out hope they can turn it around because, really, what else can you hope for at this point?

We don't have a 1st round pick for this year or next, so the best we can do is hope our GM doesn't make mistake trades, and that we eventually turn it around. There's no other choice, really.

Happy Holidays to you too, and everyone! Lets do this tonight, Flyers! Didn't we light up Smith last time?? I'll go look.

Why not try these lines...switch it up.

I'm with you. Not that I ever really want the Flyers to lose, but with out that first round pick there is no reason at all to want them to continue to fail as it can in no way be good.

To be honest, at this point, I would definitely say to try to score some goals, but more importantly, look like you are working your ***** off doing so. Please try your damnedest to win guys. If you do that but still lose, then we know there is life and hope.

I seriously am going to have to muster up some motivation just to watch this. Their games aren't even fun to watch anymore. If they at least were competitive I'd have no problem watching even if they were losing, aka the 10-game losing streak 2 years ago. This, this is just different.

But, my 9PM Scoring Rule is in full effect tonight.

I say we let Backlund get the start and see what he brings. Can't be any worse than Leighton.

I'm loving all these paper bag avatars.

I wouldn't dare put a bag over Jason Smiths head.

He'd come after me while I'm sleeping...
