There is a lot of flu going around the NHL. I would not be surprised if the team is getting a bug. It is the time of year for it.

I do not think losing is necessarily a bad thing. LA and Vancouver are good teams, maybe it is time for this team to take a reality check and realize they are not as good as they think they are at this point.

I think that no one should be using excuses for poor TEAM performances. Unless hangovers are consider the flu?

The Flyers are as good as they think they are. Theirs a reason they have been atop the standings for the majority of the year.

If Z is hurt or Sick, and Shelley Suspended I doubt we have time to bring anyone to LA from PHI. Gustaffson can be 7th D if Kimmo can go, otherwise we will probably go 1 man short or dress Boucher as a Forward......

I read elsewhere that Timonen is going to play. I think it was Tim Panaccio who twittered it.

If the Flyers are going to continue a Dec/Jan slump and the team wants to get Leighton back in better done on the West Coast swing. Although it would suck for me tonight in a suite full of Kings fans.

So, if Gus gets dressed as a 7th dman, what is the over under on his forward minutes? He would sure make a better one than Sbisa.

Well, it's official. Leighton starts:

Which means Flyers are going 0-2 on their western road trip.

Why does everyone hate Leighton so much? He helped take us to the cup last year and played well during the playoffs.

I think everyone just remembers that last goal.

i suspect NONE, cuz you'll still hate on him and find reason to say it was the team that did teh work not him..

personaly im beyond giving a **** what anyone here thinks about leighton, im just glad to hear he might finaly be in rotation (shame it is a game after their stop in Van, as i REALLY wanted to see him in net)

GO Flyers...
Strong showing?.....STRONG SHOWING???

The man single handedly blew our chances at the Cup in the Finals.

He deserves no credit. It was the defense who got him that far.

Leighton doesnt deserve any praise until he proves he is healthy, and an NHL goalie. Our D protected him well with his rebounds. See how he does with no Pronger and a hobbled Timonen. Leighton is big so he is a First Save Goalie. His positioning is bad, and so is his lateral movement

Exactly. So let him (dis)prove it then, and be done with the speculation.

Ok Flyers, listen up.....
I have a bad day on the Job, people die.
You have a bad day on the job, Lavi destroys another coke machine and it's "Oh well, we'll do better next time!"
You screw up, and it's the penalty box for you.
I screw up(God forbid) my clients go home in a box.
I do my job well, how about you guys????
