It's quite remarkable how different the offensive talents of the Flyers are from last season. Outside of Giroux and Hartnell there isn't anyone that would worry me. Simmonds is a 20/20 really. Who else is there? Briere whose injured.

Still think that they'll sadly make the play-offs but I don't see them troubling anyone.

Still way too early for me to make assumptions. Even in a shortened season. If this was baseball it'd be a completely different story, but it really isn't that difficult to make the playoffs in NHL . Lets say flyers hover around 10-12 for most of the season, then in April they go on a streak...climb into that 7-8th spot and are hot going into playoffs. Far...far too early. But exciting to discuss nonetheless . Not hoping a shortened season happens again, but now that the waiting is over with...I actually love this.

If we had to chose between on of the Flyers or Rangers missing the play-offs. I'd go Flyers every time. They play Rangers next I believe.

Explain why.

I know that the past is a really bad way to predict the future when it comes to one year to the next. But we have owned the Rangers for a while now. Won I think 7 of the last 9 in their arena, 4-2 last year, an 8 point goal differential in our favor. Some teams just match up better against others. Devils against us for year for instance.

How is that a worse matchup than Philly? I saw nothing in that first game (or the game against Philly) to change my opinion.

I realize that. Yet Crosby gets criticized for it, but Giroux doesn't.

Okay, so I'm about to tune into the Canucks game and noticed it isn't featured in HD on CI. The other night, Edmonton wasn't in HD either. Do they not have HD in western Canada?

Watching hockey in SD is horrible.

Gaborik's overtime goal was pretty good.

Pretty good indeed.

That's weird. I have both feeds in HD. How many HD slots does your provider have?

I don't know which was which but that shot where he was rushing the net, then batted in the goalie deflection (pretty much all in one motion), was awesome.

Hope that Rangers beat Flyers tonight. 0-4 for them would be a hilarious start. They have Florida on Saturday so I suspect they'll win then.

The Flyers GDT is very negative and makes for hilarious reading.

Hartnell out 4-8 weeks with a broken foot. Injuries bound to happen this season. This is a really tough one for Philly. Heart and soul guy.
