Only Giroux and Voracek are really good at it and Matt Read is the next best. Simmonds loves to skate the puck in, but his one man dump and chase routine usually only works about 3 times a game.

That's why I'd break up Giroux and Voracek. They're pretty predictable even strength and they'd really spread around the only two elite skilled puck carriers on the team. Lecavalier, Simmonds, Hartnell, and Schenn can all be effective goal scorers, but none of them are great at skating the puck up the ice. It just seems like a waste of their strengths when you have them all playing together.

Flyers are a good match up against the Avs. Their defense is starting to show the holes and while Roy has them competing hard, it's very easy to exploit gaps with them.

Anyhow, I'm back. Don't kick me out. Needed a break from the doom and gloom in the Vancouver forums.

I agree completely, having Giroux and Voracek on the same line is redundant. So many passes. I'd like to see Schenn with Giroux and maybe Simmonds. Maybe something like:

Schenn - Giroux - Simmonds
Hartnell - Vinny - Voracek
Downie - Couts - Read
Raffle - Hall - Rinaldo

Apparently there is a 60% chance the Flyers make the playoffs now.

They are at 0.550 on the year now.

They are at 0.595 since Berube took over.

They are at 0.656 since Berube camp.

It is most likely the Flyers go 20-17-5 from now on apparently. (0.536)

That would give them 89 points and a 74% chance at playoffs.

If they keep up 0.550 for the next 42 games that is 46 points... 20-16-6, which would give them 90 points and a 93.2% chance of playoffs.

If they keep up 0.595 for the next 42 games that is 50 points... 22-14-6, which would give them 94 points and a 99.7% chance of playoffs.

If they keep up 0.656 that is 55 more points... 25-12-5, which would give them 99 points and they would be guaranteed to be in the playoffs.

To have a very good chance (97%) of getting in they basically just need 92 points at the end of the season, 21-15-6 from now on. (0.571)

Apparently, Read will not play today.

I'm assuming (hoping?) that Downie slides up to the 3rd line and VV is in instead of Rosehill.

We've picked up two Canuck fans this week? Or is it just because the Flyers are playing divisional/former divisional opponents?

Hey guys, Avs fan here in peace. I'm looking forward to seeing Downie back in Colorado tonight. Whoever scores the first goal could very well win tonight. The avs are deadly when they score the first goal. Should be a good game. Good luck boys.

It isn't confirmed yet, but Rosehill is playing. VandeVelde will be a scratch.
