Well at least I can tell that cocky Devils fan at work that the Flyers are better than his stupid team.

I've seen a bit of Zadorev and I vote yes.

Imagine a Schenn / Zadorev pairing. Many opponents may gain upper body injuries.

This isn't a shot at you at all. I just don't get why it works that way.

The Flyers are the first Philly team to have a winning record in 2013.

No, you'd split them up and pair them with puck moving D men

I sorta agree, but the that's the way the league sees it so I will do the same.

We accumulated more than 50% of the points is what we should be saying.

Winning 23 games out of 48 is not a winning record.

Getting 49 points out of a possible 96 is 51% and that is a winning percentage.

Depends on which method is preferred.

12th draft pick..... 1.1% chance of winning 1st overall. Hopefully Snider pressures Bettman into giving us the first pick since he lost Ed soo much money in the lockout and not making the playoffs this year (82 games, we would have made it with enough time for our injured blue line to heal).

The sad truth is we have had a better month than a couple teams actually making the playoffs.

I just hope Homer doesn't do anything stupid and trade Couturier or any other major piece to climb up the draft to 5th or 8th place. While as a fan I am happy they fought hard this last month, it just makes this season even more sickening that they bumped themselves out of a top 5 and even now a top 10 pick.

Really? You don't think we'd take Zad at 12 if still available? You gotta jump all over that if he's still there.

Anderson gets serious consideration too; he's a big part of why Ottawa is in the playoffs as well, especially with their injuries.

Anderson missed half of the season, so that's doubtful.

You lost, scoring only 1 goal against a glorified AHL-defended team eliminated from the playoffs, with a Columbus cast-off in nets and who had every reason to lose tonight, while you had important playoff positioning to compete for.

Mason trade cost more than a 3rd rounder ... about 5 picks worse in the draft.

Obviously it's only the fans who care about the draft because the GM, Coach, and players on the ice don't give a ****.
How difficult can it be to drop the final game of the season with some dignity?

Most guys don't get to that level without an insane level of compete. You go out and WIN. Draft picks and player personnel is up to management to figure out.

The day this team loses on purpose is the day I quit watching this team. The only people who care about draft position is a few brain dead "fans" and some media members.


This season was an anomaly. I was happy to even have hockey. Sucks we missed the playoffs but I wasn't gonna be happy with this team packing it in and tanking for a better pick. That's the ultimate unacceptable act.

Was at the game last night. Overall impressed by their effort and play. Ottawa put up a lot of shots but many were just weak perimeter shots.

Mason played great. His athleticism was very noticeable and he saved a couple of goals just based on his quick reflexes alone. Rebound control was his biggest fault by far. A lot of nothing outside shots ended up as juicy rebounds in front of the net.

Hartnell and Giroux seemed to have packed it in for that game. A lot of sauntering around with the odd burst of energy but rather lazy play when the puck wasn't near them. Voracek played a strong game though. Nice to see Knuble play for what will probably be his last game.

The defense played surprisingly well. I was quite impressed with Lauridsen, made a great move to stop a 2 on 1 and played a strong game (other than the sequence were he lost his stick and then fell back into Mason. His movements without his stick reminded me of:

But outside that sequence he had a good game.

It was nice to see Akeson get his start in front of his hometown. Even saw one fan wearing an Ottawa 67's Akeson jersey (which was actually quite odd since he played for the Kitchener Rangers, maybe it was a Jeremy Akeson jersey?). He was the first one out on the ice for the pregame skate and had the biggest sh**-eating grin on his face, he was so excitied.

Worths it. Mason looks very solid. He's still young, he could become our #1.
