Milbury is one of the few analysts that always speaks his mind. He doesn't ******** around. For that reason I like him, but he annoys me with his bias (which is why he should be with a specific team and not on national television).

Betts was pretty overrated on the PK last year.

At times he was caught out of position.

His mind is biased toward the Bruins which makes everyone outside of New England sick of him. I don't care if he speaks his mind, just chill with that bias ******** on a national broadcast.

From an outsiders perspective. You guys are looking pretty solid tonight. PP has been pretty crisp too. Expecting a good season from the Flyers.

It's not as if Powe and Betts never created any chances, it's just that Powe was usually the guy getting them due to his speed. Unfortunately, he isn't exactly born to be a goal scorer.

Also, I worry more about making sure the other team doesn't score while on the pk. That might be the defender and coach in me, but still.

While our pk units has done a tremendous job so far this game, there's also to remember that it's the first game of the season. Couturier and Read probably have quite a rush of adrenalin to use this game. Let's wait and see how things go for a couple of games before we decide to call for Selke nominations. That's really all I wanted, make sure that the new kids were actually up for the job before we decided to waive Betts, not go at it the other way around. Of course, this reasoning only matters if they didn't believe that Betts was done in irreparably (is that a word?) by injuries.

You'd think the way he ran the Islanders, his reputation in hockey wouldn't be the highest though...

Clearly we are lacking defensively.... I mean a stretch of 1 shot in 15 mins from Boston shows we gave up too much

He was the forward that saw most pk time in the entire league last season. I don't think he did a stellar job, I think he looked pretty tired towards the end of the season, but either he did a at least a pretty decent job, or Lavy was a pretty dreadful coach who kept putting him out there.

Christ, I was never really that high on Betts, but the way he's talked about by some of you it's as if he was the worst 4th line center in the league last year.
