As a matter of fact, it is.

It's depressing that the highlight of our week will be if Leighton clears re-entry waivers.

If they tank in the first round and heck even get ousted in the 2nd...I say we try and restock and get some of the picks back we gave out like skittles b/c this team and it's core has some mental issues....I mean how many times is the coach going to have to take the fall because they just don't FEEL LIKE playing 60 minutes...this is just unacceptable.

If the Flyers thought Ottawa put up a good fight, I can't imagine what they think they'll be in for on Friday.

You forgot the two weeks before he got here, which you keep ignoring every time you bring this up.

The issue with moving Timonen is that you're not going to find anyone else better than him unless it's part of the same trade.

predict the post-game remarks:

lavi: "well, that wasn't the game we wanted to play (durrrrrrrrr)"
richie: "yeah we just didn't get the bounces but we're confident"
zherdev: "what...don't look at me, i actually showed up this time..."

I keep thinking some of these loses will change their work ethic but its proven otherwise.

I kind of want Buffalo in the first round; and I think the only way we get them is if we finish second (Rangers will most likely end up 8th; and the Capitals can go destroy themselves trying to beat the Rags). The problem I have with the Flyers is their lack of effort:

No Heart
No Passion
No Work Ethic
No Fight

I mean those are stuff that define Flyer hockey; and they just seem like a lost disinterested team out there.

Call me a slow learner but the last 6 weeks of sleep deprivation clearly have not been worth it. Flyers have played how I feel.

Now to watch us screw the pooch in the last two games and commend the Pens on never quitting even when Crosby & Malkin went down in their effort to claim the division.

Not sure why this team seems to wanna play TB. They've owned us all year, and you know Gags will come up big.

I can only hope Pronger and Briere can rescue this sinking boat.

Hurts to say it, but it's the truth.

My hopes for the season are rapidly eroding.

You forgot to add the "but did you see my 2 goals, I did good didn't I?"

Only his 4th and 5th PP goals of the year. A clue to our PP woes I feel.

There's your major issue. Last year with Pronger brought in and Laperriere in the line-up they were guys who held the others accountable. They'd smack people inside the room. Both of them are out, and what you have is essentially the same team that laid down in 2009. They're not hearing Timonen do it, and I guess O'Donnell doesn't do it either (although I see him with the mic's right now). As of right now, it seems last year was a mirage. There's plenty of examples of teams that got blown up not long after a Finals appearance.


It's also still entirely possible that the wear and tear from last season has finally caught up to them. The best defenseman on the team over the last 2 months is the one guy who didn't play a single playoff game last year. Our best forward over the same time wasn't a big factor last post-season.
