New Jersey defenseman Brian Rafalski did not play for the second straight game with an upper body injury, but Laviolette isn't ready to make a move and bring in either Paul Martin or Hal Gill, the two defensemen on the U.S. taxi squad. Laviolette said that had it been a gold-medal game, Rafalski, a right-handed shot and a power-play specialist, would have played. "We're just going to give it some time," Laviolette said.
Peter Forsberg practiced today with Team Sweden and the star showed no ill effects from his nagging groin injury that forced him to miss the team's first two games of these 2006 Olympics. As a result, he will be in the lineup tomorrow at 5.00pm when Tre Kronor plays Latvia at Palasport.
Uggh, I hate fair-weather fans. If you were a real Flyers fan you'd stick with 'em through thick and thin.
Ok. I don't usually play but I'll bite once.
So if I don't come to this particular forum and read the puss that get's posted every year and every time they go into a slump - I'm a fair weathered fan?
And... why am I not sticking with them through thick and thin? Because I don't want to read what morons post when they go into 'panic mode'? I've spent more money supporting them than you've made living in your Mama's basement.
I've been following this team since 1973. I've seen it all and read it all so many times before. It's redundent. You're tiring. And you're no longer worth it.
Thanks for clarifying my loyalty and contributing to this thread. Take your thread crap elsewhere and shove it until it hurts.
