What the hell are you talking about????? Apologies to Flyers fans for you.He could be alright but the mentality among others fanbases is reinforced with this and other moves similar(Ghoul)
It was strictly an AHL trade. As pointed out by others Newbury is point producer at the AHL level, just because you drop the gloves some times doesn't automatically mean you're a goon. It also frees up a defense spot for the young guys down there.
This move literally has no similarities compared to the Ghoulbourne pick yesterday.
I don't think an AHL move should get this much fuss.
I saw the main board and that I'm not the only one who made the goon reference.Maybe I am wrong about that.I hope so. My point was made though. I hope we can avoid the whole goon thing hereafter
I didn't like the Goulbourne pick yesterday neither but it was just based off what round it was in.
As long as other teams keep employing goons so will the Flyers. You might not like it but its just the way it goes.
I don't agree with giving contracts out like the one given to Shelley or wasting high picks on goons like Klotz and Goulbourne. I don't agree with dressing a goon every game but you need those guys when the big physical teams like Boston and Toronto come in to town. I don't want to see Giroux get hurt because a player like Colton Orr took a run at him and none of our guys did anything about it afterwards or to prevent it from happening in the first place. That's why we have Rosehill now signed under a goon contract and should be playing goon minutes.
No but our image is still goon related with these type moves
Who cares if the team's image is still "goon related" because of this? The perception of the Flyers from other teams fans' point of view means exactly nothing to me. I'd rather been known as the team that goons it up than a team that is a bunch of pansies who dive and can't drop the gloves.
How do you know enough about Flyers hockey to know and care about this trade, but not enough to realize that Syvret is a career AHLer at this point who wouldn't get near the NHL again unless there was a crazy amount of injuries?
