Combining pre-season and regular, we're about to finish our 10th game. We'll have lost 9 and won 1 via a shoot-out. Yes, that's right. In 10 games we haven't legitimately beaten anyone. We've scored 18 but conceded 33.

Its shambolic in every possible way.

Let's not think this third period will be any better either. Sixth period in 24 hours, it's going to be terrible.

I don't think pre season or first 3 games means anything, once they flip the switch and get the jam out, prob be in 1st place real quick.

The explosive powerhouse offensive system run by the Philly Flyers.

Why did the execution of the system since 2012 fail?

I guess we don't have Carle or JVR...but

Yep.

On paper it is. Especially up front. Yet they can't produce offence or chances. As they can't get out of the zone.

I've turned into a 'Wait and See' with all sports. The Eagles being incredible on paper years ago (and then sucking) really tamed my enthusiasm into a cold "wait and see."

BSchenn has like no hockey sense either. I see him always skating around chasing the play. I can't decide which one of Coburn, Hartnell, and BSchenn makes me madder with their dumb plays.

I've never been so bored watching a Flyers team. It's sad.

I can see it in 3 months: "These first 50 games mean nothing. It's the next 32 that count. Oh, we've lost again? The next 31. High powered offence. Jam. Leadership. Veterans. Blah blah blah"

Opposition have adjusted after seeing how easily Tampa and NJ were breaking down the system. Everyone plays against the Flyers with a nod to their systems, press high in the neutral zone.

And Lavi has not adjusted over a whole year.

Sooner or later we're going to come up against a team that's done zero research on us and has zero tactical nous. Then we'll stand a chance. Then they'll be in trouble! Then we'll at least get to overtime!

I wonder what will be an excuse tonight from CSN yappers?

"We run int a hot goalie" and "we had to many penalty minutes" won't work.

Canes announcers noticed it 10 mins into the damn game. How Canes were playing completely different vs Flyers. Their coaches adjusted their game plan for their opponents, shocking isn't it.

Yep, one of those teams who watches no NHL hockey at all! Or a stubborn one who refuses to adjust to what is obvious.

Hate to say it but it's laughable how we can't create offence with that top 9.

Need to come out with fire in the third.

The first three games of the season all three have.

Last year about half the teams we played did.

They looked best last year when Lavi changed to make it to a more standard system due to our crappy backend! How does he not realise any of this.
