Glad to see there is less hate for Zac these days. Always saw his potential..I would say we have to credit Lavi for seeing the same and giving the kid a chance. Hopefully Zac continues to establish himself in the league.

Funny how he wants the Flyers to continue to list him at 169lbs...lol

Zac has kept the boneheadedness down, which is something guys like him in the past, IE Carcillo, never did. I do wish he was able to play the PK, but at this point in his career, he does a fine job at what he does. For a 5-6 min a night player, you can't ask for more.

(Just dont expect him to play on the 3rd line *cough* Lavy *cough)


So my girlfriend got tickets for my birthday. Havent even been dating for a year yet

Yeh, I know what you mean, he can actually play some hockey, but tbh all of those others you listed apart from Rosehill had better hockey ability/scoring at his age. Though Mathers may be a better fighter than all of them.

Sestito in particular is a far better hockey player than him, but his problem is he is a rubbish fighter, if he was better in that regard he would be a pretty in demand 4th liner in this league.

I always had faith that Rinaldo would eventually mature even when he was very unpopular around here. Glad he's proving his doubters wrong.

Beyond that I'll be looking forward to pay more attention to the 1-2-2 Berube runs and see if the players start understanding the d zone coverage more. I know it won't be perfect. Win or lose I'd like to see if they atleast start showing the concepts more as the next week progresses.

Carcillo was diver and really annoying even when he played for us.

Rinaldo keeps his nose clean and hits like a train. He also seems to be able to talk to refs and has earned their respect.

The last real true heavy the flyers had who was good was Brash. Lindros of course was a beast, who was also a ppg player. I don't think they'll be another like him.

I don't expect there to be another player like Lindros for a long time. He was rare. Fast, big, strong, huge hitter, great shooter, great passer, the whole package.

I like Rinaldo, a lot. I hope he can develop into a more useful player.

After seeing Carcillo being unable to grow and form his sanity when he was here it's nice to see Rinaldo grow into the player we need.

Thought for sure Newbury would replace Rosehill in tonight's lineup.. Interesting decision by Berube to keep Rosehill in.

Last Kings game, Carcillo is out, and gets a penalty at a horrible time (of course). Camera then goes to the bench and its Brown and I believe Kopitar sitting next to each other with a look of awe in their face. Brown then just shakes his head and goes to Kopi- "What the ****?" and shakes his head some more. I think that team is in for a long year with Carcillo.

Don't forget Rosehill.

Maybe if the Flyers community all chips in some money we can buy them a permanent vacation to Camden.

Hartnell and Simmonds still on Giroux's wing, Rosehill still in the lineup.

Gah.
