I know that feeling.

That team drives me mad and every time I watch a game and they blow it. I just want to stay away from it for a couple of weeks but find myself checking Twitter and HFBoards the next day again and again. Can't break out of the cycle. Once a Flyer always a Flyers no matter how bad they are.

And on top of it I have enough time to follow every game this season because my girlfriend will spend the entire year in Korea for joint studies

It sounds like AO may miss this game with an upper body injury.

It appears that Ovechkin is may not be traveling to Philadelphia based on today's skate.

Quote:
Ovi skating early with Erskine and strength/conditioning coach Mark Nemish. That means he won't be going to Philly. Day-to-day, upper body.

Caught a break missing Lundqvist, catching a break missing Ovi, need to take advantage of this. Capitalize!

I like Raffl's work ethicic and he can carry the puck into the zone well but kinda wish a more offensive player was brought up onto the wing. Don't even thing McGinn was that guy either. Other then his goals he didn't do anything offensively (didn't handle the puck well or control the play along the boards well.)

Can't find the article but I did read somewhere that Straka was a consideration on being brought up but with his injury he didn't. Kid was looking good in the AHL also.

Meszaros is paired with Gill today...as the fourth set of d-men.

You'd probably be better off spending some of those late nights you'd be watching games having some late night skype talks and other activities .

Like someone else said, it would probably be a good idea to just have Raffl trade places with Read.

Mez paired with Gill means that he's scratched in favour of Gus....

Kimmo-Gus
Grossmann-Coburn
Streit-Schenn

This is a huge month coming up. We have a ton of games against some pretty bad teams(like us). More importantly we have 8 games in the next two weeks. After the game on the 15th, if we still are struggling to win games, I think it's time to admit this team just isn't good. I see frank s is trying to say its long term contracts are making this team complacent, it's starting to look like its just the team isn't good.

Maybe it's time for the flyers (if they are still piss poor by the 15th to start thinking about who to keep and who they might be willin to take offers on. Also let's see if snider has the patience to let hextall rebuild this team through high draft picks for 2 years, we already have some nice pieces to add to.

Hopefully they get the message and are capable of more, but the record the last two years has shown this team might just not be a well put together hockey team. Time will only tell

Meszaros with Gill and no Gustafsson? If that actually happens...sweet Jesus words can't even describe.

I think I can safely assume a Wilson/Downie fight is coming tomorrow night.

I love that the Flyers have another player that won't take sh-t from anyone.

I hope someone annihilates Wilson with a nice clean hit.
