Sestito looks a head taller than Komisarek.

Nice play there Couturier - Carle - Testwuide with the finish.

I know it's preseason against half the Leafs but our young players look really good. Schenn, Read, Testwuide, Sestito, Rinaldo, Simmonds all look really good.

I've seen enough of Betts, Shelley, Nodl. Some of these young guys like Read, Sestito, Rinaldo, etc. deserve a chance. Betts and Shelley just cannot skate well enough for this league anymore.

Simmonds is looking quite good this game, excited to have him around. Schenn is looking good during faceoffs too.

Because this is the same announcer who last night demanded Mika Zibanejad change his name to Smith.

So far

Read- Awesome, couldn't do much more
Simmonds - same as above
Rinaldo - Looks so fast out there it's scary
Gustafsson - Looks very composed and calm out there

I do like how Gus is playing. Watch how he makes his passes. They are smart easy passes and right on the tape. Plus he made some great defending plays.

Also yea, Bob hasnt been getting much love. He has had a REALLY solid game.

I agree with you, although i hate thinking about him leaving Philly, he is a quality guy, hard worker etc...Can't help but pull for him to do well whether he stays or goes.

I would love to see JVR and Simmonds on a line together. Two huge fast wingers with Roo would be exciting.

I am going to hate the Bryzgalov signing pretty soon, Bob's already there imo.

I think you under estimate how much of a veteran presence they bring to this team. Sesisto I could see rotating with Shelley, but Betts is one of our better pkers and is a great fourth line center

I am very happy most writers/analysts etc. have the Flyers somewhere from 5-8 this season. Expectations are reasonable and we haven't even seen our new goalie yet. I don't like losing Richards but with all the other youth, size and speed this team has now - I am very optimistic. And no - that is not based on this game (entirely)

I could have used Brind'Amour, too, but Holmgren was more appropriate for obvious reasons. Holmgren might have won the Conn Smythe in 1980 if that season ended differently.

Let's just enjoy that we don't have a question mark(s) in net any longer. I doubt we'll be hating Bryz....and Bob still has some seasoning to do.

No way Bob's at Bryzgalovs level....

He will be a solid backup which will be nice to have.
