Shayne Gostisbehere 2014-2015

Do you want to see Shayne Gostisbehere in the Flyers top 6 next and if so when? I personally want to see him in the top 6 right away.

EDIT: Make a prediction.

I'd like to see him this coming season, young PMD seem to be doing pretty well in the NHL recently. Pair him with Coburn or Schenn and see how he does, we can risk him being a liability. Hopefully they get rid of Grossmann and Kimmo to open up some space.

I don't really understand the rush to get him into the lineup. He only has like 2 or 3 professional games under his belt. I'd rather be patient with him. Start him in the AHL first and call him up if/when he's ready.

I know he's talented enough to make this roster already. I'd still like for him to get 10-15 AHL games under his belt and make sure the confidence is there.


All we need is him to have a great preseason, then get embarrassed by Malkin and/or Crosby in game 1 of the regular season to send his confidence into a tailspin...and his growth with it.

As much as I want to see him on the Flyers, I think he needs to play in the AHL first. How much he plays down there before being called up, I'm not too sure. It depends on how he plays I guess/what the team needs.

Hopefully, camp won't be such a laughable event this year. If the competition level is high, roster spots are indeed there for the taking, and the youngsters are actually competing like it means something the Flyers' staff will soon get a read on who is close to playing in the NHL and who is not...

Dress Ghost for most preseason games, keep him up for 9 games if he impresses and then decide what is best for his development.
At some point sooner or later he will struggle and go on slump but there is nothing wrong with sending him down for a couple of weeks or even longer to play more minutes and special teams with the Phantoms...

The 9 games thing doesn't have any bearing on this situation

Ghost is pro now

Things can change over the summer, but Ron Hextall was pretty adamant that he isn't ready for the NHL. Everyone just got giant woodies because of how he played in the Frozen Four. He will start in the AHL, and will go from there. I think he'll eventually get called up during the season, but writing him in stone as a starting NHL player in October is ridiculous. If he stays with the Phantoms for the whole year, that's ok too. On the other side, if he dominates pre-season and makes the team out of camp, that's also ok as long as the team recognizes if/when it's the right thing to do to send him to the Phantoms.

Kid has all the offensive talent to play at NHL , including shot and skating. Only concern I have is if he can avoid hits properly and if he is ready to take NHL level of abuse.

AHL so we don't damage him like every other young Dman prospect. Let him play with Hagg for a year a let them develop in Lehigh and build chemistry.

Instead of saying "He should be in ____", perhaps we let the quality of his play dictate the location?

I was thinking the same but I just voted what I think is most likely to happen.

This is what training camp is for. Best way to know if he is ready is to see how he does playing with/against NHL talent. I think the decision should be based on that.

I would really like to see them go into training camp with one D spot up for grabs. The problem with having 6 vet Dmen all making over 3 mil is that you are basically committed to them...so if they struggle you are stuck with them. If they gave Gust/Ghost/Haag/Alt/Morin a spot to compete for...even if the guy who wins shows he isnt ready...they can at least call up someone else to replace him. No harm, no foul. If none of the guys cut it...they can always trade for a D.

Start him in Lehigh and if he is dominating at that level then bring him up. No player's development has ever been hurt by spending time in the AHL. If he is NHL ready then we will see in soon enough, no need to start him game 1 in a flyers uniform.

I think he would be best served by some time in the AHL. How much time depends on how he plays. He is going to need to adjust his game to playing against men, and stronger and faster players he'll face in the pros.

There is no need to rush these guys (Ghost, Hagg, Morin). The main concern should be what's best for their development.

Let him play at least 20 games in the AHL, then if a player like Gus or someone else on the NHL roster is struggling and Ghost is doing well in the AHL, then call him up and see what he can do. If he plays well then keep him. But to be honest the only reason I would want him on the team this year is because we need a PMD. I think a year in the AHL would be the best for him. (e.g: Torey Krug)

If he impresses in camp, let him start with the Flyers; if he struggles in camp or through the first 10 games, send him to the Phantoms.

So, none of the poll options.

I was trying to make this poll more of a prediction.

I think he definitely needs to start in the AHL for at least the first 25 or so games.

Got to remember. If they do send Ghost down, there is a good chance the only way he gets called up is if an injury occurs. The Flyers are pretty loyal to their vets or starting players no matter how bad they do.
