Obviously it's cause they had such a huge lead but Gus had right over 20 minutes of ice time. Only player with more was Coburn w/22

Gus was really moving the puck well today.

Regardless of it being the Islanders, they would have beaten anybody today with that level of tenacity. Hope they keep it up.

Considering that the Isles just beat the Devils and Rangers and Tavares has 11 goals and 9 assists I'd have to disagree with you. They played a bad game and the Flyers played an excellent game.

They just need a new owner that is dedicated to spending money on the team.

While the Islanders were indeed bad, especially on defense, the Flyers also had a really good game. Flyers D was very effective...it's nice when Coburn shows up to play.

So the first line, lol

Not to take away from read but I think bryzgalov should've been 3rd star. He made some real tough save especially in the 1st period

What really amazed me was the Isles failure to scout our PP. Every team has had success playing aggressively on the PK but for some reason the Isles decided it would be a good idea to do the exact opposite of that. Makes me wonder how some of these people have jobs.

Apparently, the staff was questioned post-game regarding McGinn. From Sam C.:

Quote:
McGinn is healthy, Homer says.
And Randy Miller:

Quote:
McGinn not injured
And John Boruk:

Quote:
Tye McGinn was a healthy scratch today. No injury, no illness.

I like McGinn, but if we were smart, keep the line-up as is.

Eh they had the 4th (or 5th) best pk in the league. Its not like our pp is really unique. I bet they used the setup they are good with and thought it would work.

It was also the best the PP has looked all year. Everyone touched the puck, and they were quick with moving or shooting it.

I actually want them to miss the playoffs this year so that it forces Homer's hand a little more to tweak this team. Sure, I like the talent and a lot of the players individually, but I never really fell in love with this team as a whole.

I just feel like it's a very odd mix...young and inexperienced up front with a lot of grinders and playmakers...sluggish and lumbering on the backend with no offense. Add in the fact that our top dman is very old...I just don't like this mix of players and think we'll get inconsistent results for a very long time with it.

great team effort

giroux was right, his speech to the team was what these guys needed. the isles are not that bad. kinda sad with the ownership they have. fallen on hard times, from what was once a strong dynasty. but we have our own problems, trying to bring dynasty mode back to the philadelphia flyers.

If we want the cup this year..what do you guys think about trading simmonds for iginla (I think they would be happier to be traded for one another for obvious reasons)..and then flip voracek + for Chara.

I think that makes us a solid team

The important moment in the game was killing an early 5-on-3 after Giroux scored in the opening minute. Max Talbot, among others, performed well. Then the offense kicked it in gear.

Iginla gets paid. And with it looking like Bryz isn't going anywhere and Simmonds on a long term deal at a nice price, I don't see it happening.

Also if that comment was an allusion to their race (which is not inherently offensive, they're both black and that's unusual in hockey, just a fact), I don't follow your logic. I don't think either one of them would care what race the guy they just got traded for was.

Thanks. Let's hope we'll kick the penguins' butts on Wed
