People are nutty calling Schenn not ready for the NHL.


Schenn alone will improve our stats in faceoffs as well.

no, i saw Jagr in the middle, atleast the powerplay in the 3rd period, don't remember what happened in the 2nd. Jagr's line came on with 1:00 left and he was dead center between the 4 defenders. He was in the center like the second goal from the rangers game:



normally he would play on the right boards, he said that is why he didn't want to go to penguins. Just curious to see him in the middle. I guess they are going to try to get the puck down low and try to get jagr open like that 2nd goal above, it just looked so easy.

Color me unimpressed with Jagr and JVR. I dont think Jagr is gonna be a good even strentgth player, and might bring down Giroux. Maybe JVR is still hampered by that groin. I thought Timonen and Pronger were pretty bad, although Timonen had the save of the night.

Good luck saturday mates, may the better team win
Jagr and JVR were actually some of the best skaters on the ice. Jagr created opportunities every time he was out there and the chemistry with Giroux ES and PP was awesome and should only get better. JVR was after the puck and will benefit from having those guys on his line for sure, didn't see any issues at all. Pronger wasn't his usual self, but it's his second game action since surgery.

Timonen had an excellent game. He didn't make the right first move on the Bruins' only goal, but other than that he was a monster, especially on PK. Blocked shots, closed every lane, cleared the zone. Don't know if you were looking for him to skate around and create offense on his own or something, he did the job of a #1 d-man for tonight.

Pronger was not good but Timonen apart from one incident was strong IMO. JVR yeah played kind of avg and reverted to his perimeter play but he's playing injured apparently.

The announcers commented that, with Giroux and Jagr on the ice, they can both play any of those PP spots, and will probably switch around to play off each other.

Timonen to me was the best defender and one of the best Flyers tonight. Easily one of the biggest unsung heros.

JVR, I agree, but to me it is because of his linemates. I'm not a fan of JVR with Giroux or Jagr at all. He almost looks like the third wheel with them out there and he is unable to do what he does that makes him effective.

Id drop JVR with Briere and Voracek and bump Simmonds to the top line

Nice point. We do still lack a faceoff specialist....maybe Schenn will help out eventually...

Jeez, give it some time to develop. JVR will get a ton of open ice with those two out there, and he may thrive.

well that will be awesome, because jagr can absolutely destroy on the right side but it became predictable. Everyone knew when you played against the rangers power play that Jagr was the only threat launching jagrbombs from the right point. thanks for the reply.

On that note I think you guys are well off this year. I think you guys are being underrated significantly, Bryz is the perfect fit (I realize its early but I just mean that getting a solid goalie is the key ingredient)

Good luck, always had a soft spot for the Flyers (Leclair is my all time favorite player)

Why not just keep Read up there? That line was hot during the preseason and already have a feel for one another.

I know I know, one game. But can we agree that when JVR is involved in the play and his confidence is high, he plays at his best level? Im not saying he wouldn't have success with those guys, but with Giroux and JVR as his linemates basically putting on a clinic out there, he seems lost and is unable to play his game.

I just think he would have greater success on the Briere line

I agree about Bryzgalov, I think he is going to be a great Flyer and have a great year.

You can watch videos of the goals here, on the right side click on the video link:
http://www.nhl.com/ice/recap.htm?id=...navid=sb:recap

wow it's almost midnight and there is no mention of Jagr scoring 1600 on their website.. pretty sad, they don't even mention his return to the league. It's not even in the game recap.

Quote:
But a slashing penalty to Nathan Horton with 1:17 left in the first period allowed the Flyers to generate momentum and then grab the lead before the intermission. Claude Giroux buried the tying goal on Philadelphia’s first power play of the game after a pass by Jaromir Jagr and a one-man break-in into the Bruins’ zone with 50 seconds remaining in the first period

"Jags made a pretty good pass to me and I was able to go around, I think it was Chara, I'm not even sure,” Giroux said between periods. “I just tried to take the puck to the net and I was able to slip it in there."

Interesting quote from Laviolette on why he used Couturier at certain points: “Why not? He’s our best defensive player.”

Giroux on Bryzgalov: “He made a couple of saves where guys looked at each other on the bench and said, ‘Wow, that was amazing,’”

Timonen looked great tonight. And this doesnt include his mishap on the goal and his one great save. Overall he just looked like the old Timonen. Definitely our best defender. That being said, one dude that needs to get back into game speed is Pronger. Had a rough game.

Maybe its just me, but Giroux looks better than last season, and he was good last season. He easily went through the defense so many times.

To me this says a lot about the importance of a true number one and how situational saves can give a team confidence. Last year and especially in the playoffs it was so obvious the constant soft goals deflated the team..they had to go the extra mile to beat Buffalo and then they hit Boston and just folded because of the goalie carousel...

I love the kid, but

That's some impressive praise.

I liked seeing him not afraid to bump with Chara tonight (although it was nothing cataclysmic).
