Jeez...thanks a lot. I had successfully burned that commercial out of my memory until now....

Part time scout means you get to go Flyers home games for free. Thats about it.

He deserves to be allowed in the building, but not free seats!

Doesn't really seem like a good fit as a TV analyst.

Or Versus . I'd say a scout job might be better. He knows talent when he sees it, coaching is a different story though.

Just curious as I'm too lazy to look it up, but how long was he coach of the Phantoms before getting the Flyers job? Maybe a few more years in the AHL would help him hone his craft a little more and he could actually turn into a good NHL coach. (GASP! I just said that didn't I? )

He knows how to coach young talent? Yes, I saw that. lol

Clarke gave him Pitkanen, Richards, Sharp, Umberger, Carter, Sim (good AHL scorer), Eager, Nitty, Jones, Meyer among others and Stevens won Calder. With out PPG Carter and Richards in that AHL playoffs he would win NOTHING! So stop with that BS. He is a below avearage coach and this organization was/will always taking care their "own". Which I think sometimes it is part of a problem. I mean if we hired some real scouts we may actually see good results.

I actually was going to AHL games back then.. Were you?

Same in the NHL, Homer spent 20 or over million a year and a bunch of 1st round picks and Stevens became a head coach of the year or whatever it was.. Please....

That being said, I'd prefer him taking the scouting job. Maybe it'll segway into a player development job.

Every AHL team was stacked that year with guys like Staal, Spezza etc all there for the lockout, so its not like he was the only with talent.

I wouldn't mind him coaching the AHL again

Ha because no other team had stars in the team because of the lockout?

I've never been to an AHL game either. I think that has to do with me living thousends of miles away, and being under the age of 16

Please.. Spezza who had an excellent regular season sucked in playoffs, do not remember Staal at this point. I guess Carter and Richards were not a huge boost in that run. You know better.. It was coaching lol.

Kaktus, I too was going to AHL games back then (was a Phantoms STH) and I thought that Stevens was a horrible coach. The highlight was a game where the Phantoms were down a goal late in the 3rd period, around the 1:30 mark the puck is deep in the opponents' end and Neil Little is banging his stick as hard as he can on the ice trying to get Stevens attention to pull him for the extra attacker. Stevens was not even watching the play on the ice and 20 seconds later finally noticed Litts, but it still took him a few extra seconds to realize where the puck was and to finally pull him for a 6th skater.

As for Stevens going to tv, I'm yawning just at the idea of him providing any kind of analysis.

No, of course not!

The Phantoms weren't even the best team in the regular season that year. The addition of Carter and Richards put them over the top, as did stellar goaltending from Niittymaki.

I will not go as far as calling him horrible but below average is what he is/was. This is when I've noticed that he could not adjust during the games. He needed time to analyze god knows what for, I always thought that he had ADD. Honestly god.

Clarke really did his best with that championship team. Most kids on that team were studs. I mean lets face it most of them made it to NHL.

You have to have a talent to recognize talent or you have to be a good judge of character at least. Otherwise you will **** up and draft Klotz or trade for Dimitrakos. You know what I mean?

This. This is 100% gods honest truth.


This is why I was always arguing with Jester for 3 years about Nitty. That playoff run and Olympics. Nitty had skill to be in NHL.

Ok, I'll give you below average.

Now that you mention ADD, does not not describe the scenario I laid out perfectly?

Theres actually a decent amount of players from the teams that live around here, if you still live in Turnersville, most that I know of live/lived in the same neighborhood. My buddy's dad lived across the street from Lito Sheppard for a while in that neighborhood.

He's a nice guy and the team has to pay him anyway, right? So let the guy get back in hockey. I still think, for all his faults, he'd be a great assistant to a hardass coach.

If he's on TV doing analysis won't he be expected to make jokes every once in a while? Or at least engage in some light banter. I'm actually looking forward to seeing how that works out. The guy has the wit of a hemorrhoid.

I agree with this. His monotone voice is like nails on a chalkboard. He's a nice guy, but I can't see why anyone would give him an analyst position.
