Probably for the better. Seriously, let them know that we care and hate to see them playing this ****ing badly. Rip into them, let it sink in and maybe they'll care.

I would enjoy watching this team get blown up much more than watching them play hockey

At this point don't be shocked if he's shipped out for a top flight defender.

Holmgren is nuts and he has the balls. Damn, I should stop drinking for now. Exageration in full-mode.

I can't wait for the time where athletes get paid proportionally to their on-field/on-ice performance. In a way it'll be bad because it will reflect even more corporate control over the worker, but as a fan, I want to see these guys earn (and not earn) their money.

There was literally one goal against Mason that wasn't horribly weak on his part, and that was the 1st one off Coburns skate. Anyone who disagrees with this is just plain stupid. You can't defend either one of these goalies horrible play unless you are seriously slow. For some reason people want to try to shift all the blame off of them and say it's the Ds fault, but no defense is going to stop every single shot, the goalie has to be able to make simple saves, and ours are not.
put Henrik on this team and the result is the same...no one will succeed with this roster in front of them...NO ONE

What a god awful team.. Nothing is good.. goaltending sucks, defense is even worse and even strength looks like a power play against half the time. This team hasn't been able to do **** against good teams at all this year. Berube's system seems to be falling apart now that everyone knows to just forecheck the hell out of us and we won't be able to make it out of our zone.

Honestly this team is going nowhere and we need to clean house this offseason. Get rid of Holmgren, Berube and revamp the entire defense. But we won't because we don't need a fresh perspective, right guys?

Probably because he is the best pmd we have. And when you watch him alongside these sloths we have, he will look good.

He should not leave the line up again and let's see what we have in him for next year.

Absent his new contract next year, he is clearly a valuable trading piece.

If he persists in poor play, he should be on the table.

Not the reason Flyers lose today but it's pretty crap how much the refs tilted the momentum to the B's in that first period.

Whether it was the Giroux call or the non-calls against the B's.

Seems like it happens way too many times.

If you all believe that all these players can be this bad after being so good after being so bad than you need to think again. This team is coached by Berube. They are out of position, can't break out, pass when they should dump out, pass when they should shoot. constantly take penalties. This team is poorly coached. The same mistakes are being repeated every game. Even a bad player can be coached to at least be in position. Sure Mason is off, but besides that the team looks lost. They look like they haven't ever played together. This is a rookie coach who may never have what it take to be an NHL coach. Combine that with an assistant coach, that had tons of heart, but never coached before. How many times do we want to retool and get the same effect? We should have kept Hitch or Lavy and worked through it. Instead we keep putting rookies (Stevens, Berube) and praying we have found a diamond in the rough.

Yeh, if it was me him and Coburn would be the only ones coming back.

Streit maybe... he can be effective if used correctly.

Yikes.
@twolinepass: steve mason allowed 39 goals in his first 19 appearances of the season. he's allowed 58 in his last 20.

3 of the 4 goals Mason let in should be saved by any NHL starter 99 times out of 100. The defense is absolutely horrible but he has to stop the easy ones, which he isn't. You can't blame the defense for him letting in unbelievably weak goals.
