Or for a goon who decides not to goon.

I'm sure Shelley is aware of the fact that he hasn't fought yet this season and that he needs to play solid hockey in order to stay with the Flyers. The problem isn't his awareness, however. It's his skill level. The guy isn't a good hockey player. The coaching staff and management must know more about Shelley's presence in the locker room than we do. I think Shelley seems like a really good guy and a hard working player who provides solid leadership. It's also not too bad having him on the roster during the season because unlike a younger guy, his development isn't stunted by sitting in the press box.

This, to me, is the most telling part of this story:
Quote:
A lot of the teams weve played, there hasnt been a guy on the other side or a situation. Im just being patient.
If the other team doesn't ice a goon, then Shelley is nullified, and the Flyers have a dead roster spot and dead cap space.

He got his ass kicked in pre-season big time. Players are just going to avoid him; he plays 6-7 shifts a game. When we are on PK or playing from behind he does not play at all. Rarely, can he catch someone with a body check.

I am afraid Dubinsky is right but I'd love Shelley to KO Dubie before he retires.

Shelley is worthless. hes been here for almost a year and a half and all he has done is steal money. I expect that to continue. yet the almighty Holmgren fails to realize that.

If Shelly is scratched, he fights bums in the alleys of Philadelphia for the amusement of Snider and Holmgren.

I say he earns his keep.

You have angered superstar by posting this article. He's going to score a hattrick in the next game he plays. BOOK IT.

Jody Shelley vs. Kimbo Slice streetfight during intermission.

Forget the mites on ice crap, Shelley vs. Kimbo, no rules, 2nd intermission of the next game Shelley is scratched for.

I'd rather Shelley jump someone and get suspended or something than watch him do nothing.

When Shelley first signed I thought he would at least still be one of the best fighters in the league, but he hasn't even been good at that, even when there is an opponent to fight. It's pretty pathetic to watch him go out there and just be a giant $3 million punching bag/traffic cone.

Shelley reminds me on a OLD boxer fighting well past his prime, but still trying to live the dream..

he does seem to take ALOT of rabbit punchs to the head while he waits to land a big bomb.

i feel bad for him but at the same time if its time to go , its time to go..

I just don't understand why he hasn't been waived... we just plain do not need him.

Is it too early to discuss extending his contract?

Homer knows more than all of us and all fans in the league....

Shelley is the real coach and the best locker room presence in the whole world. Only because of him we will win the SC! So stop talking ******** about Homer, Shelley or his Contract. His Contract is the biggest steal in american sport history!!

If anyone want to criticise me i will call shelley himself! So try it




Homer is god!! Never forget it....
