I would have thought that Murray with his big league exp could have bumped them in the standings a bit, but maybe he's lost his edge
I truly don't care what the Phantoms record looks like at season's end. I want Murray to turn at least 2 or Manning/Lauridsen/MAB/Gus into suitable full-time NHL defensemen. I'd also like to see Schenn, Couturier, Wellwood, Rinaldo and Harry Z continue to improve defensively under him...Schenn especially.
It seems they're starting him against the weaker teams, but at least he's in the net.
Probably, but whatever builds confidence and keeps him warm IMO. The organization needs to regain confidence in him again before pressing to have him play more minutes. He let in 2 so far, neither sounded like his fault. Still up 3-2. Winning a close game could do wonders for him.
Can't forget that Jason Akeson had two goals in last night's game. He's really stepped up his game since coming back from Trenton and I think it's fair to say that he's established himself as a potential player for the Flyers down the road. It's clear that he's worked on his overall game and should be mentioned as one of the guys who is helping carry this team along with Schenn and Couturier. I'm really liking the signing more and more. I'm definitely rooting for Akeson to eventually make it to the big club.
