Hey Neuvirth had a great team in front of him that why he won back to back Calder Cups and should have won back to back MVP trophies but the team Grubrauer has in front of him is just atrocious. I mean it has to be sooo tough for him to sit in front of defenseman like Paul Baier and Phil Oreskovic and Brett Flemming and Johann Kroll and Zack Tarkir who all have played in the AHL and should be on AHL teams. Oh not to mention the SC offense that has a few AHL players on it as well.

And to throw another stat out, Neuvirth has only one playoff loss in NA, the loss to the TBL. But he is just an average goalie on all levels and has been soooo lucky to get on a ton of championship teams that were amazing

Neuvirth has regressed. If he and Holtby are our only options going into next season, then we are a bubble playoff team. I liked the Varly trade, and still do, but Neuvirth's "development" this season has to be alarming to McPhee, at best....and down right scary to McPhee, at worst.

Or maybe neither, for if we miss the playoffs, McPhee's problems should very well be someone else's problems as he goes to be the assistant GM in Vancouver (and the first lead GM candidate probably hired, say in C-Bus or something).

thats such a moving target man. Going into the season, that answer would have been "in DC" more times than "in Chicago". Now halfway thru the season, its changed. Halfway through next season, it may change back.

You're just trying to bolster your Neuvirth arguments

I will guess its safe to assume Marshall is more mobile than Richmond Sarge and Erskine. Getting a center, no real surprise there in light of our situation. We dont even have bottom line C depth.

This team needs more than a #2 C and #19 and #52 to get healthy. They need to make some moves and this team needs a major shakeup. Even firing BB and hiring DH hasn't worked as well as anyone had planned.

Marshall is a good prospect. Philly most not have thought they were going to use him because it is odd he was traded for Matt Ford. Marshall is a tough gritty D-man and is an agitator as well

He could get a shot in DC at some point. Assuming he shows well in Hershey, that gives them a couple of D re-call options along with Kundratek. (Collins is probably too slow...) Perhaps contingency planning in the event that Erskine and/or Schultz are dealt.

Hearing he is an agitator mid sized (presumably mobile) LD, I immediately thought it could mean Erskine could be on the block. Although when is the last time George traded a Dman in February? Erskine hasnt exactly failed for Dale. I still think Dale loves Sarge and wont trade him.

Sophmore Slump is a term for a reason..

If Carey Price didnt have one we would probably have gotten past Montreal and Halak... Well it would have been Price sans Sophmore slump.

Quote from Phantoms beat writer that shows how good our D depth is....Paterson also reports that Marshall is excited to be joining Washington organization, where he feels depth chart has him closer to NHL.

Sounds like Aucoin may have been re-called...so that one guy can rejoice.

Flyers fan in peace to ask about Ford and give my opinion on Marshall.

Honestly, I can't see Marshall being anything more than an AHL vet/NHL emergency call up. His skating leaves a lot to be desired, especially his turning/pivot ability. He's also pretty small for the physical game he tries to play. First pass and puck handling in general leaves a lot to be desired. He will stand up for his teammates though, and has awesome dance moves.

Is Ford nothing more than an AHL vet, or can he be a serviceable NHL injury call-up?

With Eakin sent down they're fine even with Ovi coming back.

Good I am glad coin has been flipped. I want to see what all our even remotely offensive C's can do with Nick out, in Dales system.

Washington, Philly, Anaheim, L.A., Columbus, Phoenix, San Jose, Pittsburgh, Detroit have scouts in Newark for Devils vs. Habs

I would think a GM would be neglect in his duties to not have scouts at most games in February. And all the likely sellers games without a doubt.

Maybe if we're lucky then getting Marshell was a prelude to a Schultz trade

Why would there have to be a prelude? We have Kundratek.

Maybe George simply wants to maintain defensive depth.
