Great game tonight. Bryz needs to step it up though.

Let's hope that Giroux, Brière and Jagr will continue playing like this. They were pretty awesome tonight. Matt Read should lock up a roster spot with his play as well, unless they're really, really worried that he will fizzle out over the season. Even so, we've got our hands on a really nice player here.

Sestito hit and Avery sucker punch. Sestito gets at least 5, right? Probably more.

I wasn't terribly impressed by Lundqvist or Bryzgalov in that game.

Read was impressive, and shows oh-so-much potential. I remain unconvinced that he can keep it up for 82 games, but this guy looks like he should be a good player for us once he learns what the grind is like.

Voracek...meh.

Simmonds...woo!!

Jagr/Giroux is going to be a great pair

Walker...go away

Rinaldo...undecided.

Sestito...idiot

Timonen...looks to be back to his old self

If Read can become a Darren Helm like player I'll be very very happy.

Wow, MSG just closed up shop with an old picture of the Philly skyline - no Comcast Center.

If Shelley got 10, Sestito will probably get 10 or more. You can see him speed up just for that hit.

It is to bad Walker is making to much money. The guy played a very solid game. Gus is just to small for me. I would like to see him in the AHL for a little more seasoning.

Solid game. Sounds like Read is gonna make the team (at least according to Clement and Jonesy). Third line with Schenn and Simmonds?

FORWARDS
James Van Riemsdyk ($1.654m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jaromir Jagr ($3.300m)
Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Daniel Briere ($6.500m) / Jakub Voracek ($2.250m)
Matt Read ($0.900m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m)
Andreas Nodl ($0.845m) / Blair Betts ($0.700m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m)
/ / Jody Shelley ($1.100m)

DEFENSEMEN
Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Chris Pronger ($4.921m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Matt Carle ($3.437m)
Braydon Coburn ($3.200m) / Andreas Lilja ($0.737m)
Oskars Bartulis ($0.600m)

GOALTENDERS
Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.666m) / Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

CARRY-OVER BONUS PENALTY: $1,402,500

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,858,095; BONUSES: $3,815,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $441,905

I'd be cool with that. I'd rather have someone else besides Shelley as the 13th forward, but I'll wait until he is officially waived before I take him out of any lineups I kick around.

Definitely. Now that we saw Jagr and Read play the point with Kimmo, JVR won't be awkwardly placed there.

Yeah it's a shame. Definitely gonna get the suspension. A few years ago that's the type of hit/aggressiveness that coaches were looking for from guys trying to make the team. Now he probably won't make it because of that.

Most likely. That was just a dumb play. He deserves whatever he gets. Shame, I would have like to see more of him.

xD. It's a little hard to understand Jagr. But that is even more hilarious.

So, is it too early to compare Read to Richards?

Video: Wayne Simmonds Caught Using Slur
http://nhlhotstove.com/video-wayne-s...ht-using-slur/

Quote:
Less than a week after Wayne Simmonds experienced a terribly offensive action, he took the liberty of using one of his own. During tonight’s exhibition game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers the right wing was caught on tape saying a derogatory term against someone he deemed unlike himself.

While Sean Avery may or may not be what Simmonds is referring to, the action was made and it was irresponsible. If Ryan Lambert of Puck Daddy (via Twitter) can read between the lines, so can viewers, fans in attendance and now the entire hockey world. See for yourself if you can:

Sestito's hit is dirtier, but I think Shelley got a few extra games as a repeat offender. I don't know if Sestito's been in trouble with the law before, so to speak.

Still, such an idiotic and completely unnecessary play. Maybe Rinaldo will end up on the roster due to a bunch of other people having suspensions, wouldn't that be something? Two more games to play before that though, what was the longest period he had between suspensions last year anyway?

The whole burn out argument is pretty specious.....everybody hits a wall of sorts during the season. I'd love to see the team cut him on the reasoning "he is going to burn out..eventually."

Very disappointed in tom Sestito was really pulling for him to make the team and take Shelley out now with that stupid hit from behind he may have lost his change to make the team.........

So where are all the "Read only played a few AHL games and you idiots are already penciling him in for no reason" haters. They were plentyful a month ago and seem to have disappeared.
