This team is so soft in the defensive end. Nobody knows where their teammates are in the zone. They aren't very well structured at all. PL has gotten exposed. Parise out muscling Grossmann on a puck will tell you how ****ing soft the Flyers are.
GET ****ING NASTY. Separate guys from the ****ing puck.
Its funny how bad we are all the sudden this round. Boone can play defense or cover anyone. Both goals were preventable. I can see why the rags, Florida, Washington and the devils games were all close. All play the same system. Looks like we need to change our mindset and personnel. I think we played one great game and that was the closeout game. I mean what can we do in the off season?
These guys need to step it up. It is pretty rare to talk about a team that had a two goal lead and say they are lucky to end the period tied. Hell they would have been lucky to end the period down 3-2. Aside from the power play time and Giroux's shorty, that was a terrible period.
Bryz had a few monumental saves there, the glove on the ice-level wraparound early, Parise's won footrace, and Kovalchuk on the PP at the end...no chance on the two goals...
JvR and Carle killed the Flyers that period, stupid lazy nonchalant gaffes, no jam, rather kilos of peanut butter in their groins impeding their skating.
Jagr's face is on a milk carton.
They ought to try Schenn on the top line with Giroux and Simmonds and up Gus' minutes
Gus is the last one that should get more minutes. He gets ***** on the forecheck. JVR playing soft again. START ****ING HITTING. FIGHT FOR ROOM ON THE ICE.
Block a ****ing shot. Sacrifice your body.
This team just doesn't have those role players like Lappy needed for the next rounds. Sure this is a sexy roster but a bunch of finesse players. Where are the gritty hard working guys? That bang bodys on the forecheck and skate hard every shift. Jagr is slow and is completely useless out there right now. Sure he is a big body but has he used it?
Schenn needs to start blasting guys in the corner. This team is uber soft. They cannot win board battles. 5 on 5 they are getting dominated.
