It's kind of ridiculous that the Flyers have so many back to backs when the scheduled isn't condensed as much as it was just cut in half. If you look at the schedules, most teams still play pretty much every other night. Why are the Flyers playing nearly half the season in a back to back scenario? Perfect example: They played Tuesday, had two days off for tonight, to play again tomorrow night after travel. They've also gotten boned on having to play a couple times already without 24 hours in between starts.
Not even that. Western Conference fans are saying no team in the East has any right to complain about travel. I don't think anybody read his post, much less thought about it critically.
I get so tired of hearing about that crap. It's not like these guys are flying on a FedEx plane from Vancouver to Anaheim. Whatever, the main boards are known for ignoring any rational thought. They would rater out-troll each other for twenty pages until the thread is inevitably closed.
I thought the Simmonds / Erskine thread was hilarious. I lost count of the variations on "Erskine needs to be suspended ... and I HATE the Flyers!"
I like the other thread on why we're so horrible personally. It starts out bashing the flyers, then to bashing giroux, then to complaining why giroux made the cover on NHl 13, to complaining about the flyers tanking to get seth jones, and then back to bashing giroux. It's pretty good for a nice laugh if you have time to read through all of it.
Anyone see Elias calling Sid a little ***** after drawing a penalty and to get up as he was on the ice. Was awesome !!!
The main boards (obviously) had a thread on the ridiculous dive of Crosby's. I commented how silly he looked sitting on his rear with his feet straight out in front of him, looking like a 3-year-old starting a tantrum.
Eric Lindros was once given a game misconduct in Chicago for slashing Chris Chelios. Bad call. Colin Campbell made the decision to rescind the penalty, otherwise Lindros would have been suspended a game.
I'm not sure I like having all my big guns out there with less than a minute left and 5 on 3 PP. I know anything can happen with a 2 goal lead but I rather have my 2nd unit out there instead of risking an injury to Crosby, Malkin, or Neal. Just my opinion though.
