Giroux has 2 points and zero goals. He's looked lost or lazy plenty, turning his effort on and off. He's being paid 8 million.
Not till next year.

Oops, right.

In conclusion, it is now my duty to make and send Read and Mason participation/effort ribbons. The rest of the team will be envious and throw themselves into a frenzy, leading to a winning streak to end the cup drought.

Be prepared.

Funny, even though we're the worst team in the NHL (points to games played), we haven't been shut out... yet.

Point still remains, he's being paid $5M in actual salary this year & he hasn't been close to worth that neither.

So far this season almost no one on the team, coaching, or management has earned their pay check.

I don't care about the rest of the team, when you're a top player in the league you're supposed to produce like one, having one more point than Kris Newbury is a freaking joke.

Flyers should trade him immediately. He's got to be worth at least a 7th at this point. Make Newbury captain.

We need some JAM folks!!! We have gotten noticeably better since Berube took over, however we just haven't got any breaks really throughtout a game yet. Obviously this year is a wash already unless God starts playing on the team. It is just typical Flyers hockey our goaltending is the least of our worries and thats when our offense doesn't just crap the bed, we aren't even near the bed to crap in it!

We have to win 5 games in a row just to be .500. That's sad.
I can't remember the last time we actually had a decent size win streak.
Figures the one year we have solid goaltending, we can't score.
I'm keeping my hopes low for this season after what i've witnessed.
The disappointment will sit easier when all is said and done.

The Flyers ended last season on a 4-game win streak. Does that count?

So Gus played 23 minutes yesterday and looked pretty good. Also McGinn is looking better (compared to preseason and the end of last year).

I really don't get why L Schenn is playing so little though. Overall he's been better then Grossmann, Coburn and Mesz who have all played way more minutes per game. Though I guess the fact that Schenn isn't scratched (and Mesz is) means ice time isn't everything.

Giroux is still invisible and that's worrisome. If he actually woke up the Flyers would most likely have at least two more wins.

Schenn has been probably our 3rd best d-man, behind Timonen and Gus. Still baffling.

Somewhere somebody isn't liking Schenn. That trade is looking worse and worse by the day. Considering this team needs goal scorers and JVR is doing that regularly.

Give it time. JVR will get hurt, or disappear.

It wasn't a game related injury, he is only out for a game. They say that he didn't get injured in practice or the game...probably a funny incident happened and they won't tell us

They would have taken Morin as high as 6th so it likely didn't matter much.

Knowing JVR it's something decidedly minor but he waffled his way out of a game.

And he has 5 goals already in 6 games. Flyers could use an injured player like that.

If he was here this year instead of say Voracek or Simmonds, would he have scored 5 goals? I doubt it.

It's not like he's been playing poorly, at least based on observation.. It's aggravating and looks like a mishandling on the surface.
