Hartnell called the first period "brutal" and "embarrassing for us."

Uninspired, lack of motivation, lackluster.

Summary of the Flyers for the past month

The consistency issues started when Richie was here. At this point I don't know what to say. They've changed coaches and most of the roster. Only Hartnell, Kimmo, Giroux, Coburn are left as far as I know.

I don't think Berube's the next Scotty Bowman but I think he's starting to catch flak for everything now a days even stuff that's far out of his control. His lineup decisions are mind boggling at times but other than that I don't think he's a bad coach.

Firing him now wouldn't exactly prove the naysayers wrong about how much of a gong-show this organization is ran of late neither.

These are periods when you wish the franchise would completely clean house and start over, just garbage in every aspect.

We need to use the urine golf club, but only when we really need it, kind of like God Bless America.

Ouch, glad I missed most of it then, and that Flyers are only down 1-0

The same can be said for ~15-20 NHL teams a year.

5-7 suck, 5-7 are damn good and the rest ebb and flow.

The whole east outside of Boston, Pitt and Tampa is that way this year.

We need to let Giroux go down on the forecheck. It's not Berubes system, the center stays high in the slot and looks for the open spot for a shot, but it needs to change. He is at his best when he is using his intensity in the corners and making plays with the puck. You basically are taking our best play maker out of the equation letting Raffl and Voracek do all the work. He can create much more if he has the puck on his stick, now let him go down on the forecheck.
