i love this place... went from "sweet we're back in it!" to "season's over, this team is garbage, our expensive new goalie sucks" in about two minutes.
well, this is philly, where the folks aren't known for holding back their thoughts, and our expensive new goalie hasn't been playing up to expectaions, nor contract..... what else are we supposed to say?
They need more practice and consistency and to shake up the lines. Everyone was lost tonight. This team needs to get its crap together by the first 20 games of the season. Also the young guys will probably run out of steam quicker as well so if theres even more of a dropoff it will be worrisome.
It's a long season, a lot of new faces, the mental lapses will hopefully become less frequent. They need JVR to start coming to the games though, this dude he's been sending to the rink wearing his jersey looks lost.
Hartnell to nashville for prospect and picks...
Waive noodle shelley and walker........
bring up rinaldo Z and Gus from the farm..
Just got off the bat phone with homer being done as i type this post..
Bryz has been a little disappointing and Hartnell doesn't really serve a purpose anymore, but the most disappointing player, bar-none, is JVR. We all wanted and almost expected him to breakout. He has not to say the least. At least if Jagr disappoints us we can say it's because he's 39.
Tonight wasn't as bad as it was made out to be. Elliott impressed and there was one odd miscommunication breakdown that led to a goal. Take that goal away and it's a 3-2 game which isn't too bad.
