Anyway, I have my fingers crossed about this game and hope that our 1st line shows up.
Thanks MSE
GO FLYERS!
Pete... yeah Behn Wilson was an interesting character. Studied pre-med, law and business courses. Was into Shakespearean acting, too. He had legal problems back in the late 90s. He was enigmatic to say the least.

It's more of a reminder of how different the team is and how much worse it seems compared to then. Back then we had a younger Timonen, Pronger, Richards, Carter, Gagne (even if he was on the downswing), etc. Now our top six is a mess aside from Giroux and our best players are Couturier and Mason. I got nothing wrong with those two players, but Mason is far from proven who we got in the bargain bin from Columbus and Couturier is like 20 and still developing. Rarely should you be saying two players like that are your best players.

It's also a reminder of being one Leighton away from winning a Cup and also the fact that the guy we lost out on in the draft lottery ended up being a big factor and series clincher in that one.

I don't hate Chicago or hold any hostility towards them, but it definitely brings about some bad thoughts or memories most definitely.

I've been saying this about every team. They are all faster than us. We need to play to our stengths

I'm not overly optimistic about tonight. A fast team with insane depth vs the slow-ish Flyers?

Even after all this time, whenever we play the Blackhawks my first thought is f u Ken Hitchcock. Sure Sharp had obvious skill and skated well and always played with effort, but gosh darn it he just wasn't old enough... same for Justin Williams.

They were two of my favorites and it still pains me. Oh well, at least Matt Ellison and Danny Markov worked out... Though I did enjoy watching that insane Russian for all of 34 games.

I'm reallyyyyy excited for this game. Obviously I hope they win, but if they lose I'd be OK if it's a close game.

No matter what, the worst thing about this game is going to be listening to the NBCSN announcers...

Couldn't find the remote so I had to leave the room when they were showing the 2010 highlights in the intro. I would've thrown up.
