Ryan Whitney scores.




Pens announcers act like it means something.

For some reason, Lefebvre decides to try and fight Josh Gratton?


Not smart.

I think it did. Not much, but it certainly means something.

Yea that didn't make much sense to me either. It sounded like he got decked for his two cents though.

Sim isn't even one of the stars of this game.



Carter #1 star....we add Mike Richards...



That's not even fair.

It means the pens where able to score on Niittymaki and where the better team towards the end of the game.

By the way Carter and Richards are awesome. They are good enough to walk straight into the flyers lineup.

He scored a goal, finished his checks, played on the powerplay, played evenstrength hockey, played on the penalty kill, was double shifted by Stevens......I might have left something out by accident.

The B2 network didn't show the game. I was more than willing to pay six dollars to watch Richards play his first professional game though.

The only thing you forgot is that his goal was the game winner. I know it wasn't a typical game winner. Mike is a flat out winner and his game goes up 3 notches come playoff time. What a luxury to be a solid playoff team and than add Carter and Richards come playoff time.

I'm not sure how the post-strike, salary cap league is going to pan out. However, I will not be surprised if guys like John Sim have a much easier time finding roster spots. Capable NHL players whom a team can pay six figures are the kind of players that give you value, and allow you to spend more on whatever the free agent market might look like. I suspect (it isn't hard to do so) that's why less glamorous free agents such as Stevenson and Knuble were signed for significantly lower dollar values. It's true they don't make that much annually relative to many typical free agent contracts, but more important are the short contract lengths. Neither contract ties the organization's hands to make additional moves.

Patrick Sharp = value
Tony Amonte @ $6M in a cap world = albatross

Nevertheless, I will not be surprised to see many teams run right out and crush their own organizations by tying up money for many years into the future.

Do we own Sim's NHL rights anyway? I recall the trade that sent Peter White to Utah was just a temporary loan.

Not yet, but I believe that's only because the deal wasn't allowed to be made at the time. If the NHL was playing I think their would have been an actual trade and not just a loan/swap.

2 assists tonight for Richards in a 4-1 Phantoms win gives him 3 points in his first 2 pro games. Carter had a goal tying him for league lead at 6. MA Fleury has the worst GAA in the playoffs at 4.08

I was there tonight, in the front row.


First of all, props to WBS fans, they had a good showing.



Jeff Carter isn't fair, people. He wasn't a man among boys but no one was pushing him around out there and it was evident on the goal that put the game out of reach.


Joni Pitkanen was the best player on the ice though, he is able to cover so much area and even threw some good hits.



Mike Richards, in my opinion made the play of the game when he put the puck on net from behind the goal line, Sim was just there collecting the garbage.
And there was 2 fans following M-A Fleury all night heckling him

Well, the only thing I can say is that it is a really nice core of young forwards we've got building in the city of brotherly love. Now, if we could only get our defense re-organized again.....

We haven't been discussed RJ Umberber yet (mainly because he hasn't done much).



I really don't see how the Phantoms will lose this series. The depth on this team is unreal.


Dennis Seidenberg didn't even play last night

I love them too, but don't get too excited. This is still a fairly young team and Carter and Richard's haven't really hit any roadblocks yet. Wilkes-Barre isn't a bad team and I could see them making this series interesting.

I wasn't sure why he wasn't dressed last night cause I didn't hear he was injured? Charlie Cook sure played a great game last night and he impressed me.

Pitkanen was outstanding. He has been showing a nasty side that is going to make him so much more valuable to the team.
