Real excited if this the style/tempo we are going to bring this year. We will wear down teams with a hard forecheck and have the skill to bury turnovers. Our defense should smuggle other teams and we have one of the top duos in net in all of the NHL. If we have solid special teams, this team will have some success. I saw a lineup earlier that intrigued me and I like it even more now after seeing Matt Read. Forget where I saw it so I will just post it myself.
Preseason or not, that's the way to start of a season. Bob eanred that shut out, he looked great and never got caught out of position too much. He also didn't go butterfly way too early like he did at times last year. JVR, step it up buddy.
really good job boys, you should be proud of some of the young players that were shown. I was very much impressed with Bob and Simmonds. I am still curious on what you are going to do with this guy, hes special for sure.
Great game BOB !........Gotta love this kids progress ! He made it look easy and in control !Like Read a lot, Simmonds is gonna be a big part of our clubs success !I liked him at LA and was happy when i heard he was coming to Philly.Courts showed good hockey sense in my opinion, knows what to do with the puck,,,,,
I liked what I saw from Zol. You can't teach speed, and he has plenty of it. If he works on developing his fore check, and taking care of his own end, I can see him being a fourth line guy for us a few years down the road. Like a harder to pronounce Powe
