And yet to think, we could have had Raymond for say...$1.2 million...which is less than Laughton's Cap hit. I think that at $1.75, Talbot might be an odd man out soon. For that money, you need to be an effective 3rd liner IMO.

But personally, I think a coaching change would do this team wonders. Vinny even said that they spend more than half the practice in the offensive end. Philly is a "run and gun" team that can't score 5 on 5 and has poor defense and suspect goaltending. Could be a long year unless there is a commitment to good D.

I don't know what to make of that? Does he not want to play? He's 31yrs old and a decent player I'm sure a lot of teams including the Flyers would be interested. Maybe its personal reasons?

His point totals were way down last year - 4 in 35 games. Was it injury or something else?

I'm officially on the "Homer's gotta go" bandwagon if he thinks a fourth line combo of Hall/Rinaldo/Rosehill/Newbury is acceptable. Absolutely moronic to think otherwise.

Unless a player is totally dominating a league, then there certainly more that he can learn. As for Homer comments, maybe him making them made Laughton a bit more complacent coming into camp. Earn their spot. Hell, even last night, did you see when Kadri was benched in the 2nd. Must be nice to have a coach who does that to the teams "better player".

From that tweet it sounds as though LaRose was interested in playing for the Flyers, but the Flyers said "no thanks".

Yes, the DAN Line, circa '96-97.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Kordic

Dan Kordic teamed with Daniel Lacroix and Scott Daniels to form "the Dan Line", a rough-and-tumble 4th line for the Flyers. Potentially the worst line in the history of hockey.

The current line is not that bad. At least all three of them can skate. Rinaldo's fast, Hall can move a bit and so can Rosehi

Talbot-Hall-Rinaldo would be a great 4th line. They need to find a way to make that happen.

Please stop..you are bringing back the bad memories of players like Norm Lacombe, Al Conroy, Mark Pederson and Dale Kushner...

Dan Lacroix was one of my favorites back then. I used to always make sure he scored a ton of goals in the whatever NHL game was around during his time on the Flyers (I think 98?). But yeah that line was pretty awful.

And a contract slot.

I doubt Gagne would refuse an offer. It's not like any other team has shown interest in him.

The only team problem I saw last night was a lack of finish. There were individuals who looked poor, but that was as strong a team game as you'll see from the Flyers this year. Bury chances, win the game; fail to capitalize on chances, easy loss.
I agree with this, they actually played pretty decent. There weren't defensive breakdowns, failed clears, failure to move the puck up. The problem was finish, and that alone.
Now granted, Toronto seemed to have been gassed so the real test will come on Saturday against another 0-1 team. It'll be easier to gauge then.

I just don't think Homer would offer him a contract after saying they "shut the door on Gagne" when they were trying to sign Cleary.

Homer calls center/winger Newbury an "energy guy" who will be on 4th line but can move up the ladder.Also can play on PK. #Flyers
11:31 AM - 3 Oct 13

Reminds me of the time when Homer signed Jody Shelley and said he could possibly play on the 3rd line.

Maybe, maybe not...was it because the Flyers were over that cap at the time?
One question...would you rather see Gagne on a line or Newbury? I have my answer.

I'm speechless.

Come on Homer, don't tell such lies. There is no way you believe this. I really hope you don't believe this.

Adam Hall is great 4th line center. I don't understand the Hall hate.
