Could this be a 1st round match up? If the season ended today it would be ....I hope tonight is a great game.

Also, Excellent GDT Flyers Fan.

i doubt it just because i think the Flyers are going to end up catching the Rangers (if we ever get healthy)... and assuming the Sabres aren't a fluke, they are heading straight for the 4/5 set.

w0000t, didn't know Gagne was back in the lineup, that is some great news!
superb GDT as allways Lion!



btw. I see that Biron is going for his 14th straight victory. I'll hope his streak ends today.

Just for clarification:

Quote:
*The Flyers could get as many as four players back for this game: Gagne, Carter, Richards and Brashear, my lines are based on that they all are.

Amazing job again Lion!

I'm looking forward to this game (especially if Gagne returns!) - I have a couple of Sabres fans in the family.

It's surprising how cocky many Buffalo fans have become already.

What makes you say that?

We're enjoying our success, and in all honesty, I think we have a fair shot of competeing with a banged-up Flyers line-up.

Noone's saying "we're better", or "we'll win the Cup" or some nonsense like that.

And your GDT does deserve praise.

Carter and Brashear in, Gagne and Richards out.

Eager and Gratton are the call-ups.

Why do Meyer and Seids get paired together? Not that it's a bad pairing. Wouldn't it make more sense to pair Rathje and Therien with each one of them?

We need Rathje to make up for Therien's mistakes.

Well, it's an honest observation after reading the Buffalo forum. Sorry if you don't like it. And I didn't say all, so you should have nothing to worry about.

Why would he worry?

im glad Gagne isnt coming back tonite, because coming back tonite would be rushing it IMO. even if Richards doesnt have a concussion no sense in rushing him back either.
Glad to see Carter is ready to go,
