Shelley was mostly fail in that regard last game. I know he got jumped on and Avery won't go anywhere near him but *** Briere did more to prove a point. And OD has more big hits.
He's definitely good to have on the ice during certain games but I would like to see him just destroy a few more people than he has.
He needs to go after Avery next time the Rags are in. Avery is scum, and Shelley needs to show him, whether he wants to dance or not!
In Shelley's defence, when you read the article about b1tch boy Avery on the other thread, Shelley was literally livid, but restrained himself so as not to get an unnecessary penalty, which was exactly what those scummy Rags wanted.
Good restraint, show Avery next time when we are well en route to a 5-0 creaming!
Sorry everybody..I realize this is sort of beating a dead horse but after this comment by Panaccio I had to bump this up to remind him why!
Age next season: turns 36
Cap hit: $1.1 million
For some reason, fans didn’t like him, yet Shelley gave the Flyers’ skill performers freedom to operate this season without fear of being roughed up on the ice. Shelley will drop the gloves with anyone. He’s the protection Briere and Giroux need. http://www.csnphilly.com/05/15/11/Fi...156&feedID=704
Shelley does very little if anything at all positive for this team. The belief that he keeps players like Orr from "running" other Flyers drives me crazy. Orr could take cheap shots at players all game and not have anything to do with Shelley if he wanted. Even if Orr does decide to fight Shelley why exactly does that mean Orr won't continue to take cheap shots?
