Ottawa player (I need to find out who) missed the most ridiculously enormous open net from about 6" outside the blue paint, and HIT THE FAR POST. My 8-year-old daughter could have potted that one 10 out of 10 times.

What about the open net miss by Craig Smith?

I still have truckloads of unopened 1998 o-pee-chee (topps!) promo packs... don't even have a proper pack, just see through! Only thing is, after opening 4 or 5 when I first got them, I realised there were only like 10 different players (with them being promos and all!) May open one when I go back to england in June to get that smell! (though they may just smell stale now after 14 years unopened!)

That was one of those plays where it was more difficult to fail than to score.

It takes a certain skill to miss a net as wide open as that! Haha. Glad the boys won. Big one! #allsmiles #nonightmares #savingit

Good sign the kid doesn't beat himself up over it. Sure helps they got a W I'm sure.

You can tell it's been a while for Bryan Allen, when he can't even execute a proper celebration

Today i learned the greatness of Roger Nielson's coaching strategies


Neilson was well known for closely reading the rule book looking for loopholes. During one particular game in the OHL his team was up one goal, but was down two men in a five on three situation for the last minute of the game. Realizing that more penalties could not be served under the existing rules, Neilson put too many men on the ice every ten seconds. The referees stopped the play and a faceoff was held relieving pressure on the defence.

That is actually really, really smart thinking.

Here's two more.. Such an awesome guy

Neilson also discovered that if he put a defenceman in net instead of a goalie during a penalty shot, the defenceman could rush the attacker and cut down the latter's angle of shot, greatly reducing the chances of a goal. Today the rule states that a team must use a goalie in net for a penalty shot.


One game during a time-out, Neilson told his goaltender, ...when we pull you, just leave your goal stick lying in the crease. When the other team gained possession, they sent the puck the length of the ice toward the open net, only to deflect wide when it hit the goal stick lying in the crease. The rule was changed the next season so that a goal would be awarded in such a situation.

Smart, but at the same time...wouldn't that lead to a never-ending 5 on 3? (barring PP goals). Perhaps I'm missing something.

The two you posted later are indeed brilliant though.

If you are winning and for the rest of the 3rd (2 mins or less left) and you are down 5 on 3, it constantly gives the defense time to take a breath at the time of a penalty. Basically breaks the tempo of the PP and in other words, another way to clear the zone. Is it legal to do that today?

The main boards never fail to amaze how stupid people are..

On the Nystrom hit somebody says it's dirty because Nystrom had no intention to play the puck

Columbus receives Los Angeles' 2012 1st round pick (lottery protected in 2012. If the Kings miss the playoffs, Columbus decides if they want to use the pick 2012 or 2013 ) and Jack Johnson for Jeff Carter.


I did not know you could add that condition in there

For the draft experts.. Who in this year's draft is the most feasible big and physical defenseman the flyers could possibly get?

Koekkoek looks like the biggest that ive seen but havent watched much junior hockey to know if he is a player that doesnt use his size

Also if Flyersfan9018 sees this :

My boy Frk is apparently out of the first round in most projections

Seems to have issues with weight and competitiveness

But but but... he doesnt have vowels in his last name!!!!

Now that the trade deadline has passed it's gets a little boring around here

I want to see if we sign any undrafted NCAA prospects. It would be nice to get that kid Dekeyser. I also don't really want to get involved in the Bryz discussion, it is crazy in there . That seems like the main attraction now on the board and i'm gonna guess it will be like that until the end of the season

I try to stay out of the bryz discussions


and ill repost something i just posted on the flyers ******..


Say we finish with the 25th pick in the draft..
Would you rather stay where you are and draft the best player available or trade some assets away to move up and draft a defenseman like Murray or Reinhardt?
