Really? Last year he lead the league in faceoffs taken and won 54.5% of them.

He was 19th in the league by percentage, and Vinny was 20th.

No offense, but the ******* in that debate seems to be you. I understand your point, but at some point you have to try SOMETHING. Things aren't going to magically fix themselves.

Even if that was true, which it isn't, that would be one more good game than Rosehill, Shelley, Newbury, and other similar players put together.

I was dead set on keeping Lecavalier as the 2C all year, but then 11 goals in 8 games happened.

If an LGV line got some games together and stared scoring goals then you live with BSchenn losing faceoffs on the 2nd line.

I'd rather have one line who wins faceoffs and scores than two lines who win faceoffs but don't score.

Enforcers are players who don't score, and also don't play defense.

Wellwood, Nodl, etc. all played defense and brought some variety of intangibles. Riding the bench for 57 minutes requires no intangibles.

"New" Flyers fans like this today because that's what the NEW NHL is. "Old" fans who want several fighters dressed per game make their fanbases look foolish.

Having Rosehill on it makes it a bad one and your opinion is in the vast minority.

Rinaldo isn't comparable to Rosehill. Rinaldo brings energy and hits like a mac truck plus he's not always a liability thus his ability to log more then two minutes a night a la Rosehill.

No, but any of them are an upgrade over Rosehill, who sucks at pretty much everything.

The amount of bitterness, immaturity, and butt hurt from Detroit fans on the main boards over tonight's game is unbelievable.

CBC reported that he did have a concussion. Open ice collision, neither guy's fault.

Still sucks that it happens. Hasn't been doing well, but I like the guy.

It has just dawned on me that Mike Smith has more goals than most of our offense.
