When are people going to learn that "plays like a Flyer" means playoff disappointments, losing your cool in big moments, and getting suspended for careless play.... It's not a good thing if a prospect "plays like a Flyer"

Why would Pete tinker with the line up when we played a solid all around game?

Our forecheck gave the Flyers all they can handle, lets up it continues. Ted played ok last game but needs to finish, he had his chances last game and I really liked the kid Matteau, didn't look out of place and if he gets better, why should he be sent down?

Also looks like Detroit and LA need defense, Lou make it happen. Lets Go Devs.

When Tallinder nets us a solid winger, you'll be thankful for Larsson sitting


Seriously though, a spot should open up sooner rather than later. I don't doubt that it will.

Ya I don't expect him to change the lineup coming off wins either. But I dunno if I'd call that game too sharp or anything, although with a week of training camp the majority of teams are going to look rough around the edges.

Because it was the Islanders and we should insert our 3rd/4th best d-men over our #6/#7 against a stronger team like Philly?

Lou has to be showcasing the Defense right now hopefully someone bites and we have Larsson's roster spot open but until then putting Larsson in the press box is not acceptable.

Also hoping Lou can get another teams 1st rounder so we can forfeit ours and still have a 1st

You showcase youngsters that are brought up from the minors, not veterans who've been playing in the league for over 8 years. Other Gm's are aware of Tallinder and Volchenkov's game... outside of Gainey and Waddel but both of those clowns aren't around anymore.

It doesn't matter that it was the Islanders. A win is a win. You don't mess with the line-up right after one as well. Volchenkov had some of his best games against the Flyers and you want that toughness on the back-end against a team like Philly.

DeBoer on E. Conference banner being up: "I think you know my boss. I don't think there are any parades for second place."


It's like the guy has been here for years. Fell in line with Lou immediately.
Hopefully that speaks better of his fate than previous coaches.

For once, I wasn't talking about Volchenkov... but it's nice to see that my #6/#7 comment made you think about him

The #6/7 is your opinion and you're entitled to that. Larsson will get in the line up soon but it won't happen after a win and a solid defensive showing.

The overall team D was far from solid last game. Turnovers galore and people running around like ants in a fire.

19 shots against? 1 goal against. Considering how rusty everyone was, they were solid. Greene looked lost on the one goal but that was about it taking into consideration it was their first game.

Smart move from Laviolette... get the pylon out of the lineup and insert a faster d-men.

The game now a days is all about speed. Kovalchuk, Tedenby, Josefons, Zubrus, Janssen, etc would've drove Foster crazy coming down his side.

And the other team wasn't rusty?

I'm not saying Volchenkov was bad so don't worry bout yo boy, but I have higher standards when using the word "solid"

and I like Janssen in actually. Might as well throw in a good that will just go around trying to truck people if you're gonna play one. Imagine a line of Janssen, Bernier, Matteau. Love

Solid defensive showing? C'mon now, I know we won the game but sometimes you win ugly games and something you lose games you've outplayed your opponent.

We played the Islanders and our overall defensive game wasn't all that great. We did surender 19 shots but that doesn't take away the fact that we had multiple turnovers and faced a team that has one good player to worry about.

Philly is a different beast all together. If we surrender 19 shots against Philly and minimise the turnovers, I'll call that "solid".

Giving up one goal is "solid" in my book. You're acting like I said they were great. They shut Tavares down all night and besides a few lapses, the defense was fine. All things considered they were acceptable.

I was at the game and our defense was great at stepping up at our blue line. We completely shutdown the Tavares line all night and rarely got stuck in our own for too long and the only goal was just a mental breakdown. They were very solid for the first game.

Being "fine" and "acceptable" against the Islanders will get you the result we got... not against a team like Philly, Pittsburgh, Boston, etc. and that's why I said we needed a better performance then what we saw 2 days ago.

I'm shocked... I was certain he'd start flaming Lou and DeBoer

What else do you want the poor kid to say, the truth?
