i'm not sure how you could say that. the Flyers have gone through massive personal changes throughout the years.

2 pts from having Ristolainen instead of Morin.

At least the Phillies got the tank right and ended the season on a losing note ended up with the 7th pick in the draft when they were in the 12th position with 2 weeks left in the season.

Risto's getting some decent ice time in Buffalo having made the opening day roster.

He never should have been named captain. Nothing against him as a player or a person...but it is a large and unnecessary distraction to give a young player like him at his point in his career (especially in this city). I think he puts too much pressure on himself now and when the team is losing, it really affects his play. Some shifts you can tell he feels like he has to do it all, and it leads to nothing.

He's living in the past. We saw that with Briere. Remember Lavi putting Briere out down a goal in the closing minutes. Lavi doesn't reward hard/good play he rewards the vets. Another reason Couts and Schenn don't stand a chance here, they'll both be called busts after disappointing yrs.

I feel bad for the guy, he has to play with Streit who apparently thinks defense is optional.

It's fine if people want him to be fired, but enough is enough. People are just so annoying with all the anti-Lavi ****. People are even blaming the guy for **** he has absolutely no control over. It's just pathetic at this point.

Personally I don't know if firing him solves all our problems, especially since there aren't any good replacements right now. Would it probably help? Sure, but I don't need to read it in 99.9% of comments.

The D cannot generate anything when the puck is on their stick. Painful to watch.

The O had no flow whatsoever and lacked scoring chances.

Emery and Rinaldo were the only Flyers who stood out.

Hahahh called it..

i knew Lavi would pull the "to many Pk" card.. no mention of the utter disaster the ES hockey was...

typical indeed..

At the ice-level yes. We've only had two coaches, the same GM, and the same methodology for forming a team throughout that whole time though. Still don't have a goalie and still give up on young players too early and still have no prospect system nor have developed a quality home-grown D in a long time.

Team started pressing after that and then a few more HORRIBLE calls, one on Emery ? One on Grossman which just fed the fire and things snow balled.......

Could we have played better ? Of course.

Game 3 tomorrow...............drop the puck !
you forgot:

Game 50 tomorrow...drop the puck... still waiting for season to turn around..

You don't need to reply either.

In all fairness, what exactly are we supposed to talk about? There's not much good here and the good there is is overshadowed by the bad and waste. Laviolette and Homer are the biggest roots of our problems as well so it's natural to talk about them most.

Flyers would have taken Morin anyway...look at their draft board.

We have in the last few years, and things appear to be getting worse. CBC said I beleive Lavy is now the 3rd longest Flyers coach ? How is firing him gonna make things worse ? Waiting to game 10 in today's 3 point games is too late to recover. Most of us wanted he gone with Bryz and it looks like we were right.

Yeah, that's ridiculous. He didn't look great with the puck, but still better than Coburn. Schenn is too important to this team going forward to be playing so little, especially on the PK.

Last game at least the PP was dangerous, even if it only produced one goal. Today, it really looked like they were just ad-libbing it out there. Terrible all around.

You are worried about 3 point games during the 1st week of the season. wth

Even if they use that as an excuse, it isn't one.

Caps lost in regulation, so that's a positive. Leafs, Sens , Isles, Jackets , Habs all got points tho.
