I'm losing more and more hope that Schenn turns into a really solid offensive player. He's 21? But the Sharp/JVR fear still sits there. Part of me rather hold onto him until its pretty much determined a bust

The teams needs are JVR right now, but its possible JVR would be playing a crappy perimeter game like everyone else if he was still here. I think Jagr screwed with everyones heads thinking they can play his game, few can.

JVR? Been there done that. Jagr didn't screw with the team? I think Jagr did the opposite, he probably stood up and told the team to get their ass in gear.

It also could use a young defenseman who can skate and create offense from the back end. That last thing the flyers needed was another defensive pylon especially with Grossman here already.

How are the dmen a problem? Offense is the problem.

true, but it's a little alarming that coburn has been our best offensive d-man, even if it is a welcomed surprise.

the worst part about this loss is they couldn't hold on until OT. we can't even devils our way to perceived mediocrity.

I agree with you 100% ! I use to cringe when i would read on here how bad Lavy is, how bad our D is blah, blah, blah, while our forwards miss on great scoring chances on a regular basis under Lavy's or Berube's systems........Hopefully the lads will get it going on Offense soon.

I don't know what team you guys are watching but we got outshot 16-6 in the third period. Since the beginning of the season the goalie and the defense have kept us in the majority of the games. You can't expect your defense to win every game because with one exception we've been held to two or less goals a game. The only defenseman I think that has stunk this year has been Timo. We sit bigger, faster and younger defensemen just so he can stink it up. He's old and done.

It's the pass first mentality of this team that hasn't changed in three years is hurting us. And this constant passing to the top of the circle is the killer. We pass off on slot shots to take angle shots. Dumb, dumb, dumb

No, it's still coaching that is the problem. Berube is just a big Lavy mini-me. The offense needs to shoot and get some net presence.

Like Meltzer noted today...this team is a bunch of pretenders until they can win 3rd periods. The Sixers will probably be more fun to watch than this sorry sack of no confidence losers that don't want to play 60 mins or just can't play 60 mins b/c they don't have the proper mix of personnel.

The first period was poetry, and I was amazed by how well the passes connected and how good the flow of the Flyers game looked. But then it all went downhill for some reason. I give the Ducks full credit, though, because it didn't seem like we just broke down on our own, to me it looked like the Ducks really started pushing and that's when things stopped going well.

I was also surprised by Mason getting the second star, while Hiller didn't get a mention. I thought the latter was more crucial to the win and made some great saves to keep the Ducks close when we had the surge.

Oh, and Timonen just isn't Timonen anymore

I watched a few Ducks games this season and they sure know how to play 60 minutes of hockey!
I was just score watching from work and once they got that first goal I knew we were in trouble!

I didn't, because at that point it was just that one goal, and the tide hasn't really turned yet.

I don't see how conceding 16 shots in 1 period is a glowing reference on the D.

While watching the first period I thought hey this team is a playoff team, then the wheels fell off and we crashed and burned like most of the season.This could be a painful year
