Imagine how dark it would be if DL never pulled the trigger on the Carter trade.
I'd love for him to hit 50 next year, hopefully with a solid top 6 LW to balance out the line
Wasn't Carter at 24g at the 41 game mark? I think he was and that would put him right there for 50 if we had played a full season. I want to see him make 50 too, the guys is just so good. I can't see us winning the cup without having picked him up.
Balances out our top 6 by providing a truly dangerous scoring threat whenever he touches the puck.
Getting Richards and Carter were terrific choices by DL. The flip side of that (and since i despise Ed Snider, it makes it all the more enjoyable) is that the last 4 bad moves by the FLyers Richards, Carter, JVR and Bob. All 4 look to be in the playoffs and the FLyers are playing golf again.
DL unilike Big Ed, is smart enough to know about patience. Other than Gagne, no Flyer in the last dozen years or more has lasted longer than 6 years with the team.
I'm more suprised that Kopitar has zero PP goals. He has to lead the NHL in PP TOI without a goal.

Yes they are. He has 16 PP assists. Which means he has assisted on half of our PP goals. Would be nice for him to score but with what are PP% is and where it is ranked. Him scoring on it would just be a bonus at this point.
Since Regehr has come on board, Doughty has five goals and eight points in nine games.
He has and is playing allot better for certain (not that he was bad before only that he now has an SAH to be paired with it has given him the chance to play his style of game) but I can see some of what Frolov6 is saying. RR has lost a step in his skating. He seems to be adapting his game to meet his lack of footspeed/skating ability but it isn't as good as it used to be.
Happy to have him no doubt but do I want him back next season? That is a question that I am still asking myself. Sometimes I do and sometimes I wonder if he will continue to slow down.
Either way I am very happy we have him for the playoffs this season and think that it may be an issue of time with the club before he puts it all together and gets back to being the stud that he has been throughout his career for the most part.
Greener sure has just stepped in and looked great so far though and that is a really good thing to see.
