This is far beyond the level of a non playoff team. Currently this is the level of a top three worst team in the league.

Well I actually love how Schenn has been playing. He's honestly looked like our best forward in the past few games.

How does the new playoff seeding work again? The only glimmer of hope I can see at this point is that the Metropolitan division as a whole has been absolute ass.

I forget exactly but I think it's the top three teams from each division then two wildcards. Could be wrong though.

Thanks, that's what I thought. Outside of Pittsburgh, the whole division is a toss up. They're the only ones over .500.

As terrible as this team has been, the Rangers and Devils are right on the same level. It'd be hilarious if a sub .500 team from the division made the playoffs.

Top three teams in the division qualify automatically.

If the Flyers finish 4th, they need to be better than the 5th place team in the Atlantic to make the playoffs.

If the Flyers finish 5th, they need to have more points than the 4th place team in the Atlantic to make the playoffs.

I'm not annoyed... Because I think he's right. I thought it was the best game the Flyers have played this year. After watching the team last year and the first few games of this year, did anyone really expect a quick turnaround? Or maybe everyone figured it was all Bryz's fault?

I can understand being frustrated after a loss and the way the seasons been so far but some of these comments are just pathetic. I'm as frustrated as anyone here but what I'm not going to do is post garbage that I clearly didn't think through. Take some deep breaths and actually think about it.

Is this a tough loss to take? Absolutely. But it was also, for the 3rd game in row, the best they've played all season. The fact they they're getting better every game is a good sign. If it werent for a flukey bounce and two sh*tty plays by Coburn this could've easily been a 2-0 win.

He is a natural center man. He needs to play that position in the future.

They lost faceoffs tonight, 70-30%. That is one hideous figure.

So you're saying there's a chance?

Looking like the 3rd team in the Metropolitan could be worse than the 5th in the Atlantic.

The Good: Nothing

The Bad: I don't think this is a playoff team. Again. Not without something big changing...like PEOPLE SCORING.

The Ugly: Our poor vCash.

I don't pay any attention to future draft prospects so I'm curious, if we do end up with a top 2 pick, how good are the top 2 draft propects?

The lists get updated at various points through the upcoming months, but here is one article focusing on some touted players:

Quote:
Not even two months after the 2013 NHL entry draft, player rankings are already popping up for the 2014 draft class.

Barrie Colts defender Aaron Ekblad topped International Scouting Service’s preliminary ranking. Past the OHL rearguard, Kootenay Ice centre Sam Reinhart, Sweden’s Anton Karlsson and William Nylander, and Calgary Hitmen winger Jake Virtanen closed out the top five in that respective order.

Mckeen’s Hockey preliminary top-30 ranking looks a lot different from ISS’s list. They have Nylander leading the way with Reinhart behind him and Ekblad all the way down at seventh overall. In addition, they have Kingston Frontenacs defenceman Ronald McKeown, who wasn’t in ISS’s top 15, ranked fifth and NTDP forward Ryan MacInnis, who wasn’t ranked by ISS either, pegged sixth overall.

Here is a look at BTN’s preliminary 2014 draft list. This ranking is based on a compilation of Mckeen’s Hockey and International Scouting Service’s draft lists.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/jrhock...173841372.html
  • Sam Reinhart, centre, Kootenay Ice (WHL)
  • William Nylander, centre, Rogle (Allsvenskan)
  • Aaron Ekblad, defence, Barrie Colts (OHL)
  • Anton Karlsson, wing, Frolunda (SuperElit)
