I believe the Flyers come out way better than the last game, G said it was embarrissing how they came out in game 1, so with that being said I have faith they will come out and play way better, also I would like to see them play a lot more physical, hitting everything and putting way more pressure on their Dmen, so the forecheck will get motoring
Maxpac's question reminds me of the CBC pre-game show for Game 1. Ron MacLean was handed the line-up cards and says something like 'The Devils are starting Parise, Elias and Zubrus, with Brodeur in net, of course. What the hell? The Flyers are starting Talbot, Couturier and Wellwood? What is Laviolette thinking?'
For a pompous hockey know-it-all, you'd think he would have watched a period or two of the Flyers before round 2.
I deride your truth handling abilities
Same status as yesterday's practice - the limping w/ice pack. he is playing tho. Not sure why our reporters share such details - definite fodder for other team. i.e. he may have trouble skating back, etc
I'm always amazed at how much offensive depth you guys have... But what's the deal with having Eric Wellwood on the 4th line over guys like Sesisto, Shelley or at the very least, Rinaldo?
have you watched Wellwood play at all? he's got speed, decent offensive skill, defensive awareness and can kill penalties
Shelley is terrible...I won't go into detail
Sestito is currently injured, but could eventually find is way into the line-up if he recovers in time and we're still playing
Rinaldo has a target on his back and gets called for everything
