anyone else notice how Hartnell looks like he's skating on fire... but he isn't actually moving all that fast?

This is HF boards. If you're not a PPG player by the time you're 23, you're a failure.

I do not see any point you are making.

Noob.

JVR gets 12 minutes a night. He has the highest rate of production amongst all rookies this year. (That's points per minute of icetime, or if you prefer, minutes per point.)

It doesn't matter whether you care how those teams do, it's just proof that every team, no matter how good or bad they are, have their up and down games through an 82 game season. The Flyers don't own the distinction of having trouble beating a specific team. It's simply unreasonable to demand perfection and I could care less how we play as long as we win, which we don't know if we will yet.

I asked that question because pretty much everybody on this board has given up on the playoffs and pretty much any time this team plays poorly (like the first period), the cliff-jumpers come out of the wood-work to preach about how doomed we are. Like I said before, having struggles after the Olympic break isn't an issue unique to the Flyers.


I realized in December this team isn't winning the Cup this year. As far as I'm concerned, anything beyond a 1st round exit is a huge success for this team. But it'd be nice to see this team show urgency down the stretch, especially against teams below them in the standings, regardless of what happened in previous meetings. Going forward beyond this season, this should be a very important issue for the team.

Like I said, pretty much every person on this board has given up on any chance at the Cup or even advancing deep in the playoffs, which I find hysterically fickle. I can understand acknowledging the fact that there's a good chance we might not go anywhere, but to say it so matter-of-fact like that we're not going anywhere is ridiculous. A 1st round exit or 2nd round exit or hell, maybe even a 3rd round exit isn't a success for this team. This team was built to win now and anything short of SCF is a failure in my eyes.

Like I said before, every single team has trouble against teams lower then them in the standings. It's not an issue unique to the Flyers. Throughout an 82 game schedule struggles are bound to happen. If you want proof then look no further then tonight.

Montreal down to Toronto 2-1 at the end of the second.

NJ down 1-0 to St. Louis going into the third.

Ottawa losing to Dallas 5-4.

Pittsburgh losing to Carolina 3-2.

Buffalo and Washington both holding onto 1-goal leads (which is what the Thrashers have).

I fail to see how this game is representative of some huge issue for us.
Yeah.

I just think they should be tried on the different lines: may be put Roo with carter and briere?

I think pretty much everyone want Giroux on the wing on our top six, but the problems are that we don't have a third line center and that, arguably, we have seven top six players.
