Yup. I haven't seen a single ounce of creativity out of this team all season.

How does one of the best 3 PPs from the last few years (consistently good as well) go to the worst in the league so quickly?

You need to be patient with the young guys not necessarily the vets.

I know a lot of hyperbole is spoken here in anger but I genuinely don't think I've ever seen a consistently worse team powerplay in my life. It's frankly embarrassing that so many so called professionals make so many simple mistakes so often.

Even when he does something decent I hate when they talk positively about Newbury.

I don't know if I've ever seen where, other than Mason, the whole team is damaged goods right now...

This is probably the most disappointing team since the 03-04 ducks. They were a team on paper who should have scored tonnes and just could not.

If NJ scores again how will Emery react for them running up the score on them?

I cannot see this team scoring a single goal.

the worst part of this is the fact that there is really no redeeming value to this team at all. if giroux is going to suck we are stuck with him for another 7 years.

If we don't score in the next 4:54, we're getting shut out.

I've actually seen worse, but the talent on paper was also far worse.

So in principle that makes the Flyers far more horrible.

Did Simmonds mean to pass that? I'm not sure.

at which point does Rinaldo drop the gloves against one of his teammates?

Playing scared with the puck, everyone is looking to pass for some reason.

Are there even defensive pairings anymore? Or is Berube just throwing players over the boards?

Did Jones just say the Flyers have "good flow this game, they just need more rebound opportunities"?

I said it as soon as it went in. I very nearly went to bed. Stupid human optimism kept me awake, a silly decision in hindsight. It's so boring, every night.
