Wow this is a really bad hockey club
Defense is giving the opposing player about 6 feet too much space
We miss 1/ 3 passes by about 8 feet in front
Not enough shots ongoal
I will always be a Hab fan... But boy this is not good hockey
Savard was doing great with the drafting and getting kids, but he screwed up with UFA's and some trades which put him in the Assistant GM role.
Timmins should take credit for how this team looks with Hab picks, but Gainey should take fault at not building around these picks like GM's in Philly/Boston/San Jose have done with theirs.
Knowing that this team NEEDS to be build around the draft, we shouldn't have the 12amateur scouts like most teams have and have at least 20. You should have a Claude Ruel, a guy who's job is to take to prospects and takes his time to go and see them, talk to them and be close to them. Seems that Timmins is doing that but the guy cannot do everything and seems to me that he is.
As far as picks were done, clearly, like I said before, this drafting team was great as building some depth. Clearly, you could have injuries and real soon most rookies will be able to step in and contribute......but we're not talking about high-end prospects here and that's a problem. Then, you can't rack tons of high-end prospect by drafting 15-20, but you still can do it somehow like some did.
And then you should have a Éric Desjardins to work with the kids on D (Desjardins who by the way is no longer part of the Flyers org.) amongst other things that is needed in that team.
