I would have liked to see more of Sestito too. That hit just wasn't necessary at all..

Sestito will probably get around 5 games.

Knowing Avery I'm sure he wasn't politically correct with his agitating remarks.....nonetheless two wrongs don't make a right

Being rational about a few AHL games isn't being a hater.

They've "disappeared" because Read has shown he can keep it up on a higher level. It's not like there was a blind, anti-Read agenda.

Well, Read and Simmonds have both impressed me a hell of a lot this preseason.

Dont go to BSH where they still think Nodl should play on the 3rd line and Read back in the AHL.

Schenn may not be a lock to make the team he really hasn't stood out to me in any of his preseason gms........

I don't think I ever said it quite like that, but I've probably said something along the lines of: "Let's not pencil in Read just yet, he did after all only play a few games in the AHL last year. Let's see what he can do against the big boys before handing him a top nine spot."

If I haven't said it here, I'm sure I thought it at least. Can't see where that is so wrong. It's like when people want to get rid of Nödl and Betts and hand their places to other guys. I wouldn't mind if some other players comes in and outplays our regulars, but until they do... I'm not going to count on it.

Read has really impressed so far though. All over the ice and in all situations. I had no idea he was so good defensively.

There have been a ton of Read doubters on here, glad I pumped him up because he looks awesome, and is going to be a great all around player.

Come on that is probably thrown around 100 times a game. You're overreacting a little bit.

Poor Wayne.

Now the Gay Cartel is going to move in for their pound of flesh.

He's GLAAD's official spokesman for the next 3 months.

I don't think it is okay for people to use that word, but sadly I do believe it is something that is said on a NHL rink all of the time. So it is right to single out Simmonds because what he said happened to be picked up? I don't know. Though I do think a message needs to be sent that these kind of slurs are unacceptable. It's a sticky situation.

BTW Avery called Laraque a monkey before so it's hard for me to feel that he is justified in his outrage.

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said he's expecting a call or e-mail from NHL regarding Sestito's hit on Deveaux.

Tortorella, asked about the nature of the game and the way the Flyers played, says "Shanny should have a field day."

It looks like Lavi has him penciled in on the third line with Schenn and Simmonds.

Likely a third line kind of guy, with skill to fill in a top 6 position. Will see pk time and possibly powerplay time.

Great all around player
