I love your avvy, great band.

But anyway, for me:

-I legitimately thought Leighton was a good goalie
-I thought Carle would do fine without Pronger

I still like the guy and hope he can get to the level I thought he was capable of.
I do have to admit to this one too. I thought that Carcillo was going to be a better scorer and point producer than Upshall. I was never a fan of Upshall because I couldn't stand that he couldn't stand on his own 2 skates but I have to admit that Upshall is better than Carcillo. I'd still rather have Downie over either of them, but that's another sore subject for me.

You weren't alone on this one. I love Parent's game but his back is not likely to ever allow him to become the player it looked as though he could be.

I'd say you were right enough about that.


As for me, I mangled this math problem once on a test.

I'll go with Zherdev. I thought once we signed him, he could have brought some of the offense we were losing with Gagne. I know I mostly stat stared, but I thought he could have produced 60+ points on this team. His laziness and overall poor attitude was still around and proved me to be a wrong believer.

Meh, maybe in the regular season but his +/- was atrocious in the playoffs. I'm sure some of it had to do with Laviolette brilliantly pairing him with Syvret at some points, but I was overall unimpressed with him. I do still like him, though.

Take away his last two games of the 07-08 season, and 8 goals in 55 games is less impressive. Your expectations were based on what happened in garbage time, which made disappointment the only possible outcome.

This. I didn't buy a Parent jersey, but I thought he was going to be a legit shutdown dman.

Not really Parent's fault. His back wouldn't hold up, which was the biggest concern when we traded for him. In the end I'm just glad we got something for him.

Was his back a real hazard at the time? For whatever reason, I didn't realize that we had traded for damaged goods (when the trade went down).

I think he missed like half of the season when we traded for him...?

I was wrong about Mez.... He played excellent, and I am very happy we picked him up.

I was wrong about thinking we would roll through Boston after the way the Flyers ended the series against the Sabres....... Really wrong.

I was wrong thinking that Cartsiephan would someday not turn every thread into a Carter hate fest.

Coburn's lacking a bit of hockey smarts, but I think that a big part of the reason for why his point totals has dropped so significantly since the 07-08 season is that he's much more focused on defense first now. He rarely pinches anymore and he usually goes for the safe play on the blue line. When he enters one of his beast modes (it usually only lasts a handful of games unfortunately) he plays with so much more confidence and takes more shots and follows up on plays in the offensive zone.

Also, count me in as one of those who thought we had found a greeat shutdown dman in Parent. I still think we should have kept him around for a little longer to see if he or Bartulis could have filled that #6 spot though.

The problem is Coburn isn't given the same opportunity to contribute offensively as he was when he first got here. When he had 36 and 28 points he was getting pp time, and now even when Pronger was out he didn't get any pp time. That being said I think his defensive game has continued to develop and he always seems to play well in the playoffs.

-Thought Nikolai Zherdev would score 50-60 points in the regular season.
-JVR would amount to nothing more than a decent 2nd liner with a 50-60 point ceiling.

I was fine with letting Recchi go because I thought he would be retiring shortly anyways.

I never thought we would trade Rod Brind' Amour
I thought we were going to win the Cup after game 4 against NJ in 2000
I thought 2004 was our year after game 6
I thought for sure we would sign a legit goalie LAST offseason
I was wrong about the Meszaros trade.

As I've said before, there's a difference between disliking the player and disliking the deal.

I liked Meszaros but I had my reservations about the deal.

There's a potential "wrong" for me, I didn't like Meszaros enough haha.

All aspects of the deal considered, I was more upset with taking on a cap hit of 4 mill for a 3rd pairing D-man..... Holmgren couldnt afford Gagne, but spends 4 mill/yr on a 3rd pairing D-man? (that was more my though process when the deal was made)

In Feb I declared that the East Playoffs should be cancelled because the Flyers were heads and shoulders above the competition.
