JS has been fantastic for them though... I think having Roy behind the bench makes a big difference for pretty much everyone.

Its fair to say his stats are amazing
But he only played 3 games
That is a very small sample

As serious as the offense is, I couldn't help but get a chuckle out of that.

Oh man, I am generally pretty good at keeping serious and classy regarding serious situations like this.

But that had me laughing fairly well.

They are so dull, so illegit it's amazing.
Absolute joke yet he continues to break trades like the Seguin one and announces gagner is back before anyone.

Something tells me the kidnapping will be dropped and he won't get very much time if any.

He'll go into some sort of counselling and the judge will give him the benefit of the doubt for turning himself in.

The new Flames third jersey is pretty awful.

I think the Flyers are as screwed as the Oilers are lol.

Both teams should make a major trade with each other to hopefully shake things up.

Line brawl and Emery just assaulted Holtby.



Yikes. I know refs don't usually break up fights but when one guy is getting pounded in the back of the head, you step in. It sounds like Emery charged down the ice and didn't give Holtby much of a choice to scrap either.

Edit: or a Capital could have jumped in. What are they doing?

Because our fans don't make any noise.

Also I don't see anyone coming to Holtby's defense.

At the end of the gif you finally see a Cap player skate gingerly towards Emery as if he's a lethal axe murder. Skating I should add with no urgency whatsoever while his goalie is getting his skull caved in.

Man, does that bus stop meme ever apply to the Caps as well. you don't let your goalie get beat up, ever, even if its at the hands of another goalie. Bunch caps players just standing around. What a friggen joke of a team that is. Much moreso because its a vet squad with pathetic team values.

Throw any nature of physical game at the caps and they wilt.


Also, what a clown Emery is but then everybody knows that. What kind of jackass keeps piling punches, and to the back of the head, when the guy is clearly down and out. What a pos. Fans cheering that crap on as well with wife beater shirts on. I'm sure the heavy set guy was half way to climaxing.. City of brotherly love?!

If I were Holtby I'd be a little miffed. People complain about us not doing anything when our stars are run...

Well what about that?

Can't take that third man in penalty when you're only winning by 7, I guess.

Yeah like I said gutless and deplorable. Any cap player on the ice at the time should have to answer to that. Just gutless and disinterested.

And Emery's a tough customer too... If you lose your goalie because you were too chicken**** to fight, then you deserve whatever you get.

Hard to think that Philly was just a few seasons ago, a Stanley Cup runner-up that has been absolutely run into the ground. But hey what do you expect when you trade your two best players away to make room for a goalie that crapped the bed then replace him with two worse goalies. Ahh, Holmgren. Lets make a deal with him while we still can..

Holtby should have kept his blocker on and just put a beat down on Emery, he totally would have deserved it and got no sympathy from me.
