RALEIGH, N.C. - There are no immediate plans for James van Riemsdyk's return, but when he does come back, coach Peter Laviolette wants the young Flyers winger to take his benching personally.

"When James gets back in there, you hope it burns him a little bit to be out of the lineup and he comes back with revitalized energy, like Z [Nik Zherdev] did, and makes it a point to show he shouldn't have come out of the lineup - and shouldn't come out anymore," Laviolette said this week in a conference call with reporters.

Getting back in the lineup, however, won't be so simple. Andreas Nodl's strong play could keep the 21-year-old van Riemsdyk sidelined for a while. He has been a healthy scratch the last two games.

"There are tough decisions to be made," said Laviolette, whose Flyers play his former team, the Carolina Hurricanes, on Thursday. "You're trying to win hockey games every night. James got caught in a numbers game. He's got to continue to practice hard, and when he gets that opportunity and gets get back in there . . . you want to make it a point to let everyone know that [a benching] is not going to happen again."

Wow. Amazing GTD I admit I don't frequent your board, but is such an elaborate historical record between Flyers vs opponents standard for your GDTs?

Thanks. Yes, something similar is done for every game.

Quote:
RALEIGH -- Jeff Skinner awoke Wednesday morning to find himself standing alone atop the NHL's list of leading rookie scorers, with 15 points in his first 15 NHL games.

The youngest player in the league was even tied for 14th in scoring in the entire league, sharing that position with established stars like Pavel Datsyuk, Joe Thornton, Henrik Zetterberg, Patrick Kane, Martin St. Louis and Dany Heatley. Oh, and Carolina Hurricanes teammate Eric Staal.

Still, the stats don't really capture exactly what has made the 18-year-old such an instant success with the Hurricanes.

"When it's time to shine, he's not afraid to try things, and he's not afraid to fail," Hurricanes forward Tuomo Ruutu said. "He sees it as an opportunity. That's how I see him. You can see it in his body language. He enjoys playing hockey. I like it. It's fun to watch that kind of player."

But it's those stats that will drive the inevitable Calder Trophy speculation, and while Skinner may not have been on anyone's watch list to start the year - teammate Jamie McBain made a few, based on his strong showing at the end of last season, and could still end up in contention - Skinner is sure to make all of them now.

He has almost twice as many points as the No. 2 rookie on the list, and so far he's well clear of the hot shots drafted ahead of him in June, Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall (picked first overall) and Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin (picked second).

His most serious competition at this point may be a pair of older defensemen who starred in the playoffs last season: 20-year-old John Carlson of the Washington Capitals and 21-year-old P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens.

I just read Lavi's comments about JvR and tried to imagine how Ron Wilson would have handled the same situation. He would have been sarcastic, demeaning and arrogant, and would have destroyed JvR's confidence. Just another reason to be thankful that I ditched the Leafs in 1974!

It kills me that he's not in Kitchener this year, but he's clearly shown he belongs where he is.

2 points tonight opens up a 7-point difference over the Rangers and Penguins. Keep stockpiling those points early!!

Ugh. And let me guess - Shelley is dressing.

I'd love to know how anyone justifies this.

Nice. It's freakin' impressive, to say the least.

Here's to a good game tonight, I'll be there. Try and shut down Skinner, but please pretty please don't injure or break our new draft suprise-gift kid. We aren't even close to being done having fun watching him play.

Some of us aren't surprised in the least by the kid (we saw it from his first OHL game). You guys just needed to see for yourselves!

And yes, we are very much spoiled/treated by MSE every game. It's a lot of work. We all appreciate it but it's nice to see other fans' reactions to it.

Do the flyers even have bandwagoner fans? Don't most bandwagoner fans usually pick teams that win? Thats part of the reason why I believe philly has the best sports fans, because we may have the least amount of bandwagon fans.
