Roster Update: The #Flyers have recalled F Petr Straka from the @LVPhantoms → http://*******/1FNqjOK
Raffl's sick, so Straka is up.

Does this mean they are completely done with Akeson now?

Good luck to Straka though. I know there was a decent bit of excitement when he signed, but he hasn't quite set the world alight. Hopefully he'll grab the opportunity.

Straka's not having much of a season in the AHL. Pretty close to busting.

Probably didn't want a center in Cousins and rather let Leier develop

You are right. The kid can really dangle and shoot though. Interested to see how he plays. Glad he is atleast getting a shot.

I say we give everyone a few games to look at on the big stage. This season is lost.

I bow to you and your superior tweet embedding skills.

He's worth a try. It's not exactly going to hurt if he doesn't look up to it. Good luck to him.

He can at least shoot the puck though. At least this call-up makes sense from a needs standpoint.

That's pretty awesome. Excited to see how he does.

He's not exactly lighting the world on fire in the AHL, but the goals he's scored have been pretty skillful and he has a pretty nice shot. I bet he's pretty excited.

Yeah until he's on a line with Couts and White and staring 65% of his shifts in the defensive zone.

Excited about this. I don't think I've seen Straka play in an actual game yet.

Hopefully it gives him a jolt, and he can start putting it all together.

Yeah, I'd like to see that too simply because it would balance the lines better by having Schenn and Simmonds on the 2nd line instead of just Simmonds and two people playing for in their first NHL games (obviously White has played before but not this year). Straka's skillset would be a good fit with G and V and really it doesn't matter who's there since they're going to produce anyway.

Are you expecting our coach to follow this complicated train of thought?

On the other thought, did White and Straka play together in the AHL?

Put him on the 1st line but give him limited minutes. 17-20 minutes is too overwhelming for an NHL debut. Put him up there but rotate Schenn in there a few times, but Chief will probably feel compelled to throw VV up there. He should end up with 12-14 minutes today considering G's and Voracek's PP time + rotating Schenn in. No more than that tho.

For ****'s sake, just give Simmonds to Couturier. That's just a waste of Simmonds while keeping offense as hard as possible for Sean's line.


This isn't "spreading the talent around," this is just burying Simmonds and minimizing his ability to even consider having an impact.

Berube's line combinations have been horrible all season. Its one of his biggest weaknesses. These would be my lines with the current roster situation.

Matt Read - Claude Giroux - Jakub Voracek
Brayden Schenn - Sean Couturier - Wayne Simmonds
R.J. Umberger - Ryan White - Vincent Lecavalier
Chris VandeVelde - Pierre-Edouard Bellemare - Peter Straka

Michael Del Zotto - Nick Schultz
Mark Streit - Luke Schenn
Carlo Colaiacovo - Andrew MacDonald

Ray Emery

Those are just as bad, if not worse, than Berube's combinations.

Matt Read, who's struggling so insanely hard right now, shouldn't be on the top line.

That third line would mean we have two 4th lines and actually the 4th line looks better.

With those players, I'd rather see

Straka-Giroux-Voracek
Schenn-Couturier-Simmonds
Read-Bellemare-Umberger
Vandevelde-White-Lecavalier

My thoughts concerning Simmonds with Coots: Simmonds does his best in front of the other teams net...Couturier plays his best hockey in the defensive zone at this point.

Coots and Simmonds play best on two different ends of the ice. While I don't like the line that i just saw listed above (the white line), I'm not sure Simmonds and Coots compliment each other.

Someone feel free to break out the fancy stats so that i can be publicly shamed and proven wrong yet again.

Also im not trying to make a case for where to put white or straka, just my thoughts on putting simmonds and coots together.

Simmonds and Couturier looked great together to start the season. Couturier is very good at puck possession in the offensive zone, and he can get the puck his teammates very well. Having Simmonds provide net presence would be huge for him. This is something people wanted to see Hartnell doing last year as well.

Lecavalier & Umberger are too slow & too unskilled to be put together on a line. Berube wasn't even dumb enough to do that for an extended period of time.
