Defense dman-not much but i think he has just about a zero chance of getting a contract

What I read about him is that he is a physical stay-at-home defenseman but his offensive game is or was lacking/needs improvement. He also suffered a concussion early last season (IIRC). His hero is Chris Pronger.

Some players to watch:

Quote:
No. 14: F Sean Couturier -- For similar reasons as we explained for Schenn, Couturier is probably going to be one of the best players on the ice today. But we're including him on the list because he's much more of a question mark than Schenn is at this point. He's younger, a little more raw and he's likely not going to be on the Flyers roster this year. So let's see what you've got, kid.

No. 61: F Tomas Hyka -- Honestly, all of the guys that aren't under contract with the team but are playing in this game (they're listed in gray on the roster) are probably worth watching. After all, there's a reason the team wants to see them in a game format, right? But Hyka is the most intriguing of that bunch, if you ask me. He was selected 8th in the 2011 CHL Import Draft and will play for Gatineau this upcoming season, and the folks up there are extremely excited about him. He played on a line with Couturier during much of camp this week.

No. 78: D Blake Kessel -- Was he worth signing to a contract, pushing the team back to the 50-contract limit? I mean, if the Flyers were so impressed with him in the last few days of rookie camp to the point where they gave him an entry-level deal, let's see what he's got in game action.

No. 51: F Brendan Ranford -- Remember last year, when Ranford lit up the WHL in the first half of the year and made everybody freak out because we thought we might have drafted like the Red Wings for once? Yeah, well in the second half of the season, he completely fell off the map. Now he's in camp and playing in today's rookie game. The up-and-down nature of last season was probably caused by a ridiculous hot stretch to start the year and nothing more, but it's enough to make me keep an eye on him in today's game.
Seems like Hyka will be playing on a line with Couturier. This is his best chance of making the team, playing on a line with him. I would make a bet McGinn plays with Schenn (did at prospect camp and put up 3 points during the scrimmage).

McGinn-Schenn-xxx
Hyka-Couturier-xxx
xxx-Akeson/Cousins-xxx
Mathers-xxx-Elynuik

On defense supposedly Kessel has been playing with the Dane.

Lauridsen-Kessel


That is all I know.

Specific things to watch for:

Noebels vs. McGinn using the body.

The skill of Ranford vs. Akeson.

Whether or not Hyka can impress enough to get in favor with the organization.

Is the Great Dane all hype? (Can his skating keep up with quicker forwards?)

Did Blake Kessel deserve a contract? (Compare with Hostetter.)

Is Couturier NHL ready?

Keep an eye on Cousins and Suellentrop.

Might be a dumb question here but does anyone know if the jerseys they're using for this game will have names on the back or just their rookie camp numbers? I can't remember what the situation was last year.

Would save me learning which numbers to watch for.

Was watching NYR tourney on NHL network this week. Jerseys all had "reebok" wordmark on back instead of vector logo. #flyersrookiegame

That didn't answer his question at all

Truth of the matter: one early roster released had two #62s, Grist and Eddy. That is why I left Eddy's number blank on the OP.

True. It doesn't mean I didn't appreciate the information though!

I've come up with a solution so it's not as desperate (I'd still like to know if anyone's aware of the answer though), I've gone dual screen and now I'll have the roster open on one screen and the game on the other.

I don't know if this helps but it is from JVR's rookie game against the Caps:

The Flyers website is supposed to stream it. Hopefully it works. I might be making things up, but I don't think I've had a lot of success with their broadcasts. It always seems to be broken.

EDIT: You guys are quick. And it appears to be working. Awesome!

It works for me in Sweden, so I'd guess there are no restrictions.
