andreas nodl

i think between giroux and jvr he has trade bait written all over him. solid defensively didnt do a bad job of getting the puck to carter when that was his role earlier. i think he could be a solid building block player on a rebuilding team. its my assumption he garners some interest at the deadline. what do you think?

I don't really see him being moved, but that may be just me. I see Homer standing pat right now, depending on how Briere progresses with his injury. If I'm moving anyone as Homer, I'd be moving Jones, even though he's not too appealing as trade bait.

Nodl does make for good trade bait but I dont see him moving.

Yeah, he's the kind of prospect a contending team would be dangling for experience at the deadline. He's probably a NHL player on a rebuilding club.

He's going to be a solid player. I'd like to keep him as we will need some cheaper players moving forward. That said, i would move him for the right price

I'm really fond of the idea of having a team full of two way players. Detroit runs a system that helps them be successful but every player on that roster can play both ways, and that's what I'd like to see in Philly.

I also think we've really got to keep these young CHEAP guys. It's really really important.

Quite honestly if we're going to dangle someone at the trade deadline I'd move a guy like Lupul who is about to become way too expensive.

Teams DON'T need 3 excellent scoring lines to be successful and I think that mentality will hurt this team long term if they stick with it.

Why? All those players had showed some promise when they were with the Flyers, but were smothered under a strong top-6 and were therefore traded away, or left, because they'd never get a real chance here. Nodl is in that same boat, so I assume.

I would in fact say that none of them are the same... and that Nodl isn't like any of them.

Sharp- great defender really developing into a good goal scorer at the NHL level

Potulny- played in the AHL allstar game, potential to be a good all around player

Ruzicka - lazy sack of *****

Nodl- potential to be a very good defensive player, not much of a goalscorer, but has very good on ice vision and good passing ability

Sharp? You do know that Sharp is an NHL star (not superstar, not an elite), right?

thats pretty much how i see him. when parent was in nashville he was stuck behind better d even though he was a real nice prospect i think nodl is in the same position.

i dont see him cracking the lineup this year or next, not with the depth we have on this team. i think hes ready to make the jump but wont be able to do it here. id set his vale similar to that of a high 2nd low 1st.

after downie was moved nodl got a little showcase but when it became obvious the spot was gonna be available they called up giroux. my point was hes good enough for the spot but the flyers have better guys to put there.

I sure hope not....He doesnt offer the same grit and intensity. I actually would like to see them both on the third line next year to be honest.....

Gagne Richards Briere
Hartnell Carter Giroux
Upshall ??????? Nodl

Assuming Lupul isnt here and JVR is not ready. If one or both are here either Briere moves back to center and mix/match accordingly, or something else needs to happen

upshall has kinda settled into a 3rd line role which i think keeps him from getting overpriced. with downie being traded i think they see him in that spot for a while.

gagne briere giroux
hartnell richards lupul
jvr/phat pat carter upshall

The day he gives a real effort is the day he gets a real shot. So it won't happen.

As for seeing Maroon in someone's lineup, that was kind of refreshing, because I haven't seen it yet. I don't know if he'd make the club next year, but nonetheless, some love for my favorite prospect coming from someone other than me was cool.

As for Nodl, I don't think he'll be a Flyer past next year.

I honestly don't know what the hell half of you watch during the games but calling Nodl a good defensive player??? OMG. He's not on the team right now because he's been so horrible in the defensive zone. We don't need him to be an offensive force right now we just need him to NOT be a liablility in his own zone but he's failed miserably so far. Maybe that will change but right now he's sown no reason for such praise.

Nodl is young so he still has plenty of time to develope. He's still got a chance to become a 40-50 point player. All throughout his college career he wasn't a defensive first player, he's been an offensive player. Now I understand that not all offensive players in juniors/college translate into scorers in the pros but Nodl isn't bad. He's not a naturally gifted scorer so that's why we haven't seen him as a scorer right off the bat. Remember, everyone here was calling Sharpe a "defensive specialist" too because he was behind Forsberg, Primeau, Carter and Richards. Nobody expected Sharpe to be an offensive player either. Look at him now though.

Nodl may develope into a decent 2-way player but I don't see him ever being a defensive specialist, he just dosn't have the instincts. He's also shown extremely POOR judgement this year in his own zone while up with the Flyers. Carter got better so Nodl can too but I just don't see him being overly good at it.

I don't think we'll see him make the team out of camp, but a callup for a few games at some point wouldn't shock me in the slightest. I think we're not going to see a lot of him until '10-'11 at the earliest though.

I wouldn't mind that. I salivate at the idea of a big guy line of JvR, Carter, and Maroon (even though Maroon and vanRiemsdyk both play the left side) if it could somehow work. It would let Maroon handle down low, JvR dangle, and Carter to zip around the mid circles.

I think the guy's got tons of potential, but I can't imagine there's any way Maroon could keep up with Carter and JVR.
