You tell me where the "crap" players are on that team right there. All young and getting better. Superstar Giroux though is crappy!
Giroux...kind of sounds like poo...or doo doo. He's ****!

rangers and devils keep their *****, so they'll make them look pee wee hockey players, this team is not good enough, you want a cup this team needs a legit first line winger and a big defensemen, without them, the flyers are average team that's it, blame the goalie all you want but this team is not good enough, jagr is not coming back, that's worse, so how can flyers beat the rangers, devils without a big time winger?

flyers have so many unproven players on this team, read, jvr, voracek, hartnell, courts, yeah i mean flyers fans are so deluded the offense is great, if these players struggle next year, then this team is going to go backwards, that's why i think nash or ryan will be a big upgrade, because it will make the other players better.

i know they need defense but of course media and fans are ignoring the fact that there's no big defensive out there in market or fa, they have to use a rookie or an inexpensive FA that's big and shoot to fix the defense, there's no other way. i wish people would get webber out of the heads because nashville isnt getting of him.
Are you trolling for people to rip you a new one? If so, congratulations on a job well done. If you are serious in what you said, then the only thing I can say (as someone who has watched the Flyers for over 30 years) is you are so wrong, it's not even funny to begin where you're so wrong. You want an honest comparison with this club, then look no further than the '84 Flyers. That was a club that had several first year players in the lineup as well and did quite well.

This club doesn't need Rick Nash or Bobby Ryan. Could they use an elite winger? Yeah, but at what cost? It's best to take the lumps and let the kids develop accordingly.

As for a defenseman, while it would be nice to land a Weber, the route that they'll probably go is a Keith Yandle or a Marc Eduoard Vlasic (who was put on the market this morning and San Jose has apparently offered him in a package for JVR). I don't think anyone would complain to add one of those guys to the lineup (my preference would be Vlasic, just because he is so good defensively).

Maybe calm down and wait for the draft and FA period to be over? Do you expect Holmgren to make a singular move that fills every hole?

if you are taking about the staying pat approach, then you really are setting yourself up for a very bad team, because that's what clarke did in 06 offseason, he made no upgrades to this team and the whole team went downhill fast, that's the only reason why the flyers go in the playoffs every year because they make upgrades and make the team better,

you cant wait for players develop because they are too young and they will struggle, you cant do that, you need vet leadership to this team, that's the reason why the flyers went into the playoffs because they got jagr and it made a difference to this team.

which is why they need an upgraded player to this team. plus other teams like rangers, devils know their weaknesses now, maybe pittsburgh, they upgrade their teams and they get the upperhand over the flyers and it will kill them, im telling you right now, they have to upgrade.

We could ice Team Canada and it wouldn't guarantee us a Cup. Give it a rest. BTW, Clarke added a bunch in 06. Hatcher, Rathje, some guy named Forsberg. If you mean 07, then we still added Sanderson, York, and Calder...who all sucked

Are you one of those fans who wants to completely explode the team every year they're eliminated? You know that's a recipe for failure, right?
