GDT: vs Philly

For some reason I am not to optimistic about tonights game. I think Philly is going to pin Roberto to the net with all the shots they will take.

I figure about 39-40 shots.


I hope I am wrong.

Are we starting a pool?

I'll vote for 35 shots, but the Panthers will also take 29, and the game will end tied 2-2.

I mean, c'mon! Even though Hackett's been good so far this year...it's friggin' Jeff Hackett! He's not Hasek

Esche will be getting the start tonight, hopefully this game isn't going to be as physically draining as our last encounter a year ago when we won 6-2 and there was a crapload of PIM. Should be a good matchup.
Anxious to see the Bouwmeester vs Pitkanen challenge.

Philly 4
Florida 1

What will the Florida line-up look like.

Flyers should be

Recchi - Roenick - Amonte
LeClair - Handzus - Williams
Gagne - Primeau - Kapanen
Chouinard - Lapointe - Fedoruk

Therien - Desjardins
Pitkanen - Ragnarsson
Weinrich - Johnsson

OFF TOPIC...

THAT HAS GOT TO BE THE BEST COLLECTION OF TOP 9 FORWARDS IN THE NHL.

Nothing less than the Stanley Cup should be accepted. But Booby Clarke is running the ship. He will find a way to disrupt team chemistry. On paper, things look alot better than they actually are for these Flyers.

I know, I still can't believe that with 3 top lines like this, we have yet to see the conference finals. I think we are getting better and our chemistry is progressing as these three lines were just put together and they have been doing well so far. The 4th line cannot be counted out either, they are doing their part and also generating some opposition. When the Flyers paly their game, they are very hard to score agianst. We've proved that against the Habs, Sharks, and Sabres.

I wouldn't go that far. Flyers are very good, but there are other teams with better top 9 talent (Senators, Avalanche and possibly a few others)

The Flyers strength is their depth. 9 NHL quality defenseman & 14 NHL quality forwards.

What they lack is a dominant player (Forsberg, Thornton, Lidstrom, Brodeur etc.)

When Jokinen and Kozlov are hot things could be scary.

If you think Philly has the best top 6, you have been in a hole for quite some time.

Forsberg, Hejduk, Sakic, Selanne, Kariya are the top 5 forwards of any NHL team. Nothing can match that.

Battaglia - Nikolishin - Svatos isn't too bad of a line. Either way you put it, comparing your teams offensive talent to the Avs is a pretty far stretch. Nothing against the Flyers (even though I do hate them), but they just can't match the top end or overall scoring ability of the Avs.

They traded Battaglia for Konawalchuk. So that is another improvement and they are using him on the second line since Kariya is hurt. So when Kariya comes back they will have a pretty nice 3rd line too. The Flyers do have 3 very good lines, but your right since no one is as highly talented on the team as Forsberg, Selanne, Sakic, or Kariya. I am looking forward to seeing Pitkanen in action tonight.

Although I'd take Ottawa's forwards over both Philly's and the Avs'. I think their speed, creativity, depth, and crisp execution of a two-way system is unsurpassed.

The Panthers top two lines will probably look like...

Hagman-Jokinen-Hordichuk
Messier-Kozlov-Bednar

with the other two pretty much bein up in the air.

Philly plays a solid two way, defensive minded game, with a great bunch of scorers doin the work. Yes, their top nine are among the best collections in the league, but the fourth line is damn tough as well. Should be a tough game, but too bad the rivalry isn't there like it once was with Lindros and Jovo roamin the ice for their respective teams.

As for Booby Clarke, as it was said. Remember, he built our expansion team and the majority of our Stanley Cup finals team in 96. The fan base in Philly is also one hell of a lot tougher than it is here. Hell, ever see the old 700 level in Veteran's Stadium? The cops were even afraid to go up there.
