Wow this is a serious wake up call for this team. I really hope we don't compound it like making a stupid trade.

If you can't beat a team on a back to back its going to be a long year for you.

Sure would be nice to have a guy like jvr to help giroux out.

Be bad for Ekblad! Dam, wrong year to be horrible with McDavid next year, supposedly a generational talent.

Overall poor effort by the team. Rinaldo and Mez taking REALLY dumb penalties. Talbot and Coots keep turning the puck over. Giroux, Voracek, and Simmonds continue to remain invisible, Hartnell as well when he was out there.

Players who keep bringing at least a little something have come down to : Hall, Vinny, Read and Mason, which does not a hockey team make.

I'm not impressed with how much so offensive talent we have that our superstar 8mil still remains invisible and can't look anyone look good next to him, that we can't score over 2 a game, and how they just are invisible, fanning on everything and missing high and wide.

I just cant ****ing do it. Flyers are a laughingstock right now. There are more entitled penguins fans here than flyers and it's embarrassing to walk around in flyers gear.

What ****ing happened to our team? Was it losing lappy and pronger that did it? I have to be missing something here.

Good: Mason
Bad: puck control and scoring chances
Ugly: that ****ing ass rinaldo, I used to like him - he's a good player when he's calm... but **** man

If their best effort includes 0 real goal scoring ability as well as Rosehill on the roster and hilariously stupid penalties then I'm super excited.

At this point, Akeson should be called up. They need anything to spark the offense, finishing in particular.

So fed up with this team and organization.

This team looks completely lost. Can't sustain any offensive pressure, power play is atrocious, defense backs out of the offensive zone way too early, no help given to each other in the corner.

As a die hard fan of this team, it's embarrassing. I use to argue with my father in law because I always felt that the Eagles were the cockiest, "shut up, I know what I'm doing" organization in the city. I don't know if I believe that anymore. How can someone be a fan of this organization and actually have faith that Snider and Holmgren can actually fix this?

Luke Schenn 14 min?

What the hell is going on? Did we really just trade for a defender who can't even play 18 min a game?

Rosehill should be taken out in the back and shot. Mason was fine. Mez made it even worse at the end of the game.
No Pa, he's my goon...I'll do it.

Mason letting up 2 or less a game and he is going to be 3 below .500. this is unbelievable. the team finally has a goalie that is playing great for them right out of the gate and they have only managed to score more than 1 goal only once in 5 games(against an injured and frazzles Thomas BTW).
this is what happens when a GM builds a team with no particular vision in mind and only makes roster moves in a knee jerk fashion.

YES this team is better than they are playing. but how many goals can a team who looked at players like hartnell and simmonds and evaluated them into top line forward spots really score.
this team doesn't just need direction, they need a whole new roster. how is giroux supposed rack up the points when the only person on his line who the defense has to worry about his him?

I caught the Phantoms first game last week. They looked really strong so at least we have that going for us. Bring up Tye McGinn.

Hartsy-Vinny-Schenn
Raffl-Couts-Simmer
Akeson-Hall-Talbot
if our star players arent performing at all, it doesnt matter who we call up

It's easy to blame the lesser players on the roster but let's be real here. Our top players suck and they can't even make a simple pass or recieve one. They can't win the one on one battles. Right now Giroux is anchoring his team down the standings.

I already have zero faith in Berube's accountability generic ******** he put out upon being hired considering Rosehill was in the lineup tonight but if Rinaldo is in the lineup tomorrow then it's really obvious that it was nothing but posturing.

I honestly do not know what is going on... he was arguably our best D last year and has looked pretty good again this year. Yet they use him like a #6.

Please. Chances are always going to be tight against a Tippet coached team. They had multiple odd man rushes, a penalty shot, etc. If they had any finish and weren't pressing, this game would be 4-2 win.

Maybe Dreger was right about that ''Flyers source''
