If he was a Flyer, you know you'd love him.

Yup, everyone would. Big sized winger with skill & physical attributes. There's a reason Homer & Co. wanted him badly that year.

Agreed. I liked Alderson as well.

I was unable to watch the game. Will there be a replay or video online so, I can watch the game?

I'm excited about Morin's potential. He seemed composed with the puck, made clean passes, and was physical(maybe over the edge at times but it's nice to know he can toss people if the need arises). You can see he has some nice offensive potential too and he wasn't just drafted because he's physical. I didn't really see him shoot a lot tho I only remember seeing one wrister. Looking forward to following his development.

Too bad Alt got injured hopefully it's nothing serious.

My opinions:

Good game overall except for Alts injury.

My 3 stars for the Flyers: Leier, Alderson, Morin

Johnston seems to have lost a step over last year but is still fairly quick

Both of our goaltenders played well. I realize that Chubak is likely to go to the ACHL but I wouldn't scared to have him in a Phantoms role. He is small but poised and good with the puck

The tryouts didn't impress me

Mangene was visibly better than I've seen him in the past.
Laughton was bad as other have said (I felt he was worse as the game went on). I don't buy the "he doesn't care" argument either. JVR had the same contract/full camp spot and he still lit it up as did Couts. I think he was just off a bit and will be fine once the real camp comes around. It also didn't help that they wore him out with a ton of back to back shifts.

Aside from the tryout guys I liked all of our D

As for the captain question I don't think we ever have one for this game.

There were a few forwards I hardly noticed at all: Flanagan, Brown, Ghoul, and surprisingly Noebels and even Straka aside from the first period.

To expand on Alderson a bit I was extremely impressed at how well he played all around. Away from the puck he was exceptional and I can see why they say if he makes the NHL it will be as a checking line winger. His speed on the rush was also impressive. Obviously its one game against other prospects so I'm not penciling him into my top 10 prospects just yet but I was still impressed.

Mathers showed why he was drafted. That fight was totally his style too.

On a unrelated note I really appreciated how the commentators weren't complete homers and made sure they had some knowledge of our guys and talked about them as well from time to time. Also the feed was the best I've ever had for the rookie game

I absolutely loved Morin's game. He was so much more comfortable than I thought he would be. He made great reads, used his stick well, moved the puck in transition, and beat players up in the corners. His instincts in the offensive zone could use work, but other than that, I see a solid, solid player.

Stolarz was impressive, but I'm not going to get excited about a goalie prospect. He's nothing until he's an NHL player.

Laughton had a stinker. Seems like that type of game is really uncharacteristic, but, man, he seemed disinterested. Not sure what was up.

Just got back from the game. Here are some simple observations

1. The play was very sloppy and boring. Very few players were able to make passes tape to tape the ones that were capable of such were laughton, straka, and cousins. These guys clearly had the most puck skill of everyone on the ice.

2. Straka, clearly he has good hands but my god he has no physicality to his game. It doesnt matter if you can dangle because once someone puts a body on him he is out of the play.

3. Morin- He is vicious. He was completely unrelenting against the opponent in the corners. Few will be able to handle his physicality. He was the toughest guy on the ice. And that is saying something with wilson there, he took wilson down to the ice with a one handed push and got a penalty for it. Pretty impressive strength there. He can skate and was so mobile. Cons- He is not coordinated enough for 1 timers, he has bad hand eye coordination constantly looking down to see where the puck is on his stick. he really lacks some polish that defenseman need in order to play in the nhl.

Overall i was impressed with only 1 player and that is stolarz my goodness he made a save that literally took me right out of my seat.

Do you really think any of the players on the Flyers actual roster really care about something that happened in a rookie game?

Besides it was a clean hit with a bad result.

Umm maybe I alluded to that first game because I think Wilson will act like a ****** there too and end up getting into it then? I doubt anyone on the actual roster knew this game was played today.

I'm not a mind reader I could only go by the context of what you wrote.

Is Wilson not supposed to throw hits out there? Is that your take on this because it was a clean hit?
