yep a guy who can do more then just throw em. A guy that wont tolerate that kind of garbage. I want Erskine to have to answer for what he did. Should of handled it the other night. A Shawn Thornton type player.

Derek Mathers is probably the guy they call up from the minors when they need to next year. Or they sign someone in the offseason.

It's kind of weird really having no tough guy on the Flyers.

i know some people will always love the goons, but the time has passed on having guys that can just fight. There are some left around Scott, Westgarth on other teams. Most teams have realized you need some skill with that toughness.
If you want to call a guy like that up for certian situations then fine i could live with it. I dont want guys like that taking up every day roster space.
Dont get me wrong, I love fighting, and there will be a need for it. I just rather have skill with the toughness.

No tough guys?

What do you call Rinaldo? I'm pretty sure hes our "tough guy" behind Sestio and Shelley. Theres a ton of dudes in the Phantoms that can throw em too.

Donald Brashear wouldn't have put up with that.

I like Zac. He'll fight anybody, but he usually loses more than he wins them.

I want a guy that teams fear and know not to mess around when he's in the lineup. We currently do not have anyone like that.

I'm only 22, but I guess I would have to say Brashear was the best enforcer for the Flyers during my time watching them.

Yep, my opinion too, guy could play as well, his forechecking was relentless at times and he had a handy shot.

Everyone took notice when dave brown was on the ice. No one was safe. Also Hextall was quite an enforcer as well, and psychotic which played to his advantage.

The biggest story here is that ANYONE on this board would actually believe a preliminary diagnosis from the quack training/medical staff of this team. How many times in the past have they completely screwed up on concussion diagnoses? They must scan the graduating medical school classes of local universities, and hire only the bottom 2% for their staff. Have they EVER gotten a diagnosis correct?? Unreal.

If he had ever improved his skating to even average NHL-level, he could have made it off the 4th line. He had good hands. Only scored 6 or 7 goals a year, but they were often beauts.

The thing with Dave Brown was that he prevented alot of that stuff. Just knowing you had to answer to Brown put the fear into guys.

The caps color guy a while back said in the 80's he put a good hit on mark howe, and when got near the flyers bench after a whistle he heard Dave Brown say "you will not hit mark howe again" and he looked and saw Dave's serious face and said "yes sir, I won't"

I agree 100% but I'm also only 22.

I honestly can't remember a fight where you can say he clearly lost during his time here. His fight with Domi (around the time Domi and the fan in penalty box incident) and the brawl with Ottawa are things that come to mind when I think about his time here.

Some of the announcers were talking during a Boston playoff series, I forget which. One asked something like "what is it like being in the same building as Bobby Clarke?" The other replied "I bleed instantly."

Damn, that's bad news. I was a bit cautious as to whether he's really as good as last year suggested, but after watching him play these first few games, he really does bring a lot to the table. I think he's already sorely missed.

Monday's (Feb. 4) practice started at 11 a.m.; Simmonds was not among the participants.

Lines for Monday:
(source: Randy Miller)
15-28-48
24-14-9
32-10-93
26-25-36

Also, the team will issue another update on Simmonds' status at some point today.

Guess they had enough of Talbot in top 9. Seriously I shold stop hating on him, but offensively he is creating nothing.

Sestito will create space I guess, but I guess they want him to be the "Knuble" on that line. Atleast Lavy is not doing the "Dan Carcillo" by putting Rinaldo on the top lines.

Voracek has been such a dissapointment this year. I really hope last game was a stepping stone to him finding his game

Fedotenko and Talbot played more than B. Schenn and Voracek, and Rinaldo played more than Sestito, so maybe that is the third line, not fourth.

Talbot is a great role player, but we can't expect 18 goals from him every year.
