I hope not.


The MVP line just made Carle look foolish.

That was definitely not on Carle, it was a terrible change. It was a 3 on 1 there was not much else he could have done really

I don't know how Flyers fans feel about Carle after first impressions, but I feel good about Eminger.

He didn't do anything to blow me away, but he didn't do anything that made me say "WTF!" either, which I can't say of Carle.

This team doesn't need top notch defenders, they have a solid, young, talented core. Eminger came in and quietly did his job. Took a bad penalty, but that was probably just protocol for admission onto the team.

I wasn't aware that "They made Carle look foolish" was the same as "Carle caused them to have a 3-1".

Seems to me like Pat is just saying Carle looked bad. Not that the play was result of anything he did.

Don't worry, I get pissed too when we continually lose to a team we just can't seem to get a win against very often. You'll get over it friend.

Carle looked great against the Lightning tonight. He didn't make any dumb mistakes, didn't get caught in the zone, and made couple of really nice passes. Looked very good on the PP too, carrying the puck and pinching in on the play. First impressions, Philadelphia wins the trade. I didn't see much from Eminger, which means he didn't screw up, which is an improvement for him.

Carle seemed pretty out of place, but he is new. I hope the kid shapes up, I really do.

I love how we all declare winners after 48 hours and 1 game.Come on people - this was far from a blockbuster for either team.We may know who "won" the trade in a few months but there is no way to know now. Maybe we should let the season play out a little bit before we condemn either team for making this ( or any other ) trade.

I didn't say it was his fault did I?

As for the Downie stuff, considering how bad the Lightning suck (except for last night) I wanna watch him blow some people up.

Were we watching the same game? I thought he looked very calm and made very good decisions.

Matt CARLE

After watching Carle play lastnight he appears alot more fluid and confident with the puck than Eminger, i know it is just one game but Carle seems much better than eminger.

So I guess 2 negatives in your sentence make a positive?
was never not = was ... I assume

I'd say that that his sentence translates to "Carle was always better than Eminger".

You're posts are a little vague - perhaps you should emphasize the stinkage of both Eminger and Carle a little bit more. Just my two cents.

Poor Carle ... just after buying a house, too. Shame on you TB.

Carle minus Downie makes me like Philly even more.

Jim Fregosi when he was manager of the Phillies never moved out of his hotel.

Lets all have a good cry for the 24 year old who will make 13.75 million over the next 4 years while getting a free college education for playing a game that thousands of people pay to play.

Sucks for him but no GM worth his late in salt would ever let a players housing situation effect a trade.

Too many people forget that above all, this is a business. In any type of business, if you let your employees personal lives influence decisions you make for your business, you're going to sink, quick.

Jay Feaster was really, really good at handing out contracts because of the way he felt personally about players, and now he's blogging for ESPN.

Stop the crybaby crap. I have a big feeling that every time Mr. Carle sees his gamecheck, he'll forget he was ever even in Tampa.
