He sure watched him hit a lot.
After the winter classic alumni game there was a video of Rinaldo going up to Lindros in the CBP locker room to introduce himself and his father. He asked Lindros for his autograph and a picture together. Rinaldo went on to tell him that he's a big fan and that growing up he tried to copy all of his moves to which Lindros replied "so you only have the one" or something along those lines, being modest of course.

It was pretty funny seeing Zac all awkward in front of his hockey hero.

Anyway, gonna be at tonight's game. Lower level, row 12 (stub hub is so awesome). I'm one and one this season so hopefully the tie is broken in the Flyers favor.

I had never seen the video before, so I looked it up. That was pretty cool and funny.



Big game tonight! I wish I could watch it but I'm just too damn tired right now.

There's a ton of Flyers fans on here who are easy to get a rise out of which isn't the case with Columbus.

I also think people felt bad for them that Carter quit on them day 1 of the process.

Yeah, that trade wouldn't look nearly as bad had Carter not sulked his way in and out of Columbus.

It was Columbus's responsibility to make sure Carter would be happy being there. They dropped the hall on that one. They should still receive criticism for that trade.

I'm sure they expected Carter to act like a professional and not a 7 year old.

Yeah but even when Carter is playing at his best Couturier and Voracek are better. But I guess it wouldn't have looked that bad had Carter lived up to expectations. Columbus at the time did need another superstar with Rick Nash just to get hockey more popular in Columbus

You seem to miss the point that some people enjoy to boo players (despite whom may still be respected by our franchise, fanbase, and general hockey community) solely for the sake of booing the OPPONENTS.

Ever sit up in the mezzanine? It's fun.
Looks like you're not familiar with the concept of sarcasm.

The way people detect sarcasm is both by the tone that the person says the phrase and what the person says, usually they say an exaggerated phrase that's the opposite of what you think they really believe. Since there is no tone through text sarcasm has to be detected more by the content of the phrase, basically it has to be even less believable.

That's not an instance of me missing sarcasm, that's on you for not being clear and not quite grasping what you need to do to make your text seem even remotely sarcastic. If I post "I think Grossmann is a good player" and you say you agree I'm not going to blame you for not realizing I was being sarcastic because I didn't present it properly. Saying "I think Grossmann is the best player on the team AINEC, I wish he could play 60 minutes per night!" sounds sarcastic.

Umberger is likely to return to the lineup for Columbus tonight.

Yup what he did was embarrassing, he acted like he was the first player in professional sports history to be traded somewhere where he didn't want to go.

He locked himself in his shore house for a week after the trade while not talking to anyone including Columbus, when he finally reported he gave no effort in the games, he basically said everything but exactly "I want out" to the media there, & the final straw was when he left a fan autograph session like 20 minutes in when he was scheduled to be there way longer than that.

The last thing is probably the worst & makes it hard for me to respect a guy like that regardless of how good of a player he is.

I wish Rinaldo could score like Lindros. Certainly hits like him...or tries to, at least.

Andrew MacDonald was limping badly and wearing a boot today, but the #Flyers' Dman will play tonight vs. #Blue Jackets.
He's like a less awesome version of Kimmo.
