You really think Snider is going to let the team get blown up ? ****ing doubt it. Odds are he has a gun to homers head to trade our first and our prospects for some project player or on the brink of retirement.

Meh, there really isn't many people to sell on this team. Most of the dead weight has no trade value (Fedo, Knuble, Foster). The only player we could sell without ****ing the future would be Briere, outside that, everyone is too young and it's way too early to give up on. One player I really want to trade for though, is Bernier. I know Bryz needs a break and is being played way too much, but he has still given up a lot of softies and his contract is really terrifying to eat the next decade.

If this team is bad enough(which they are looking like they are) they will sell players. Just not players who are part of the core. Coots, Schenn, Schenn, Giroux, Voracek, Simmonds, Hartnell are here to stay.

Just make the dead weight avaiable (talbot, feds, knuble, briere), and take whatever we can get for them. then bring some young guys up

When you run he numbers, we are getting close to being out without a wicked run. And nothing about this team or Lavy's decisions leads me to believe that's possible. Knuble dressing let alone out with minute to play tells me he has lost it.

When Knuble played those few games over Mcginn is when I knew Lavy had to go. Im not saying McGinn is a great player, but he came in and did his job. He wasn't a liability defensively and actually produced some offense

McGinn's a nifty little grinder. Knuble has fallen and he can't get up.

Yeah keeping Knuble in the lineup at this point is inexcusable.

There really isn't anyone to sell outside of Briere if things get really bad. Giroux, Schenns, Couturier, Voracek, Simmonds, Hartnell, Read, Grossman, and Coburn are all key pieces moving forward. Guys like Knuble, Fedotenko, Gervais, and Talbot all have very little value in a trade and/or are on one year deals. Gus, McGinn, Rinaldo, and Mez will all return much less in a trade than they are worth or could be worth going forward. All that leaves is Kimmo and Briere, and they're not going to move Kimmo after giving him that extension.

What's all the talbot hate? He's not a goal scorer and his defense has been solid. We can't expect him to score 19 goals a season. That was an anomaly. And his line mates on most nights aren't very good players. He's had Knuble, Fedotenko, and Rinaldo all on different occasions. He is an important piece on this team.

The team isn't bad. It's inconsistent, and has had injuries. We've got a very young team so I see no reason to go on a sell plan. Briere would get us nothing in return (Gagne type trade) and the rest of the pieces mentioned don't net us much either. Play a wait and see game. If things keep going the way they are look at firing Lavy (even if it would be the wrong move) and let someone try audition for the job.

Tied for 8th, but with 3 more games played. There's several teams below the flyers who are in better shape % wise. Just looking at the raw points # doesn't tell the full story.

Yeah, without a solid win streak this team won't secure a berth. There's too many team with games in hand...if any of them go on a run and we don't, that's it.

whats worse is this team is completely stuck in the mud making no ground.

we keep hearing the same ******** after every loss, "we need 60mins, blah blah blah"...

from the very beginning of the season till now the team is making no progress or even signs of making progress towards a consistent team, which is what wins cups.

the only thing this team is building towards is front row seats at the local pub for viewing the first round of the PO's.

i thought Testwuide was playing for McGinn. Knuble was already in the lineup with McGinn. They called up Testwuide and he played over McGinn.

2 steps forward one step back. one step forward, one step back.
Just think if they didnt rally back against Winnipeg. Tonight might have been it for Lavy.

Why, because he's been given such a polished perfect set of tools and it would be unforgivable if their performance was mediocre?
