I won't believe Pronger's not playing until I don't see him on the ice.

Indeed he is. My issue is that Ruff (in all of his success in having unlimited time to get the Slugs a stanley cup) always whines about Philly...or at least that's my closest association with him. Things he says about us being goons or idiots or whatever. Briere aside, as I love the way he plays, I hope we live up to Ruff's allegations...it's what he deserves.

Ruff's quote doesn't even make it sound like he is taking a shot at Briere, just mentioning how he plays the game and how he is effective (and he is spot on, Briere does seem to play the best when he is pissed off/has a chip on his shoulder - until he does something stupid and gets suspended).

For all the people who insist we are much bigger than the Sabres, I stole this from a flyershistory post...

Flyers: Offense(avg. weight): 195.75 (including Nodl and Zherdev, excluding Carcillo and Holmstrom)

Defense: 216.5 (including Pronger, he may not play game one, but he will appear and excluding the scrubs they have in his place)

For the Sabres I used their roster from the last game played against the Flyers.

Sabres: Offense: 182.83 (To be fair, tiny Tyler Ennis is an outlier and drops this down a bit, he weighs a whopping 157!)

Defense: 209.33

The Flyers have a 10 pound advantage on offense and a 7 pound advantage on Defense(where it really counts). I think the point here is that size is not going to be a huge factor.

The third part is very good (~5:30). I'm not a huge Linkin Park fan either, but it definitely works.

My favorite video (not just the Flyers).

I didnt make this either. Way to lazy this year to make a video. Plus I dont think I could top the 20k views I had on the last one.

Like this one too. Also I think it is pretty funny that the only thing they could say about NYR is "Can Lundqvist steal a series? (or 2)" Haha.

Richards misses practice

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/playof...ory?id=6346063

Now, maybe I'm making too much of this, but when the team captain misses practice for a "maintenance" day, you know it's going to lead to speculation, especially when everyone considers just how bad the Flyers crapped the bed down the stretch........

Oh my god! The drama!!!!


Seriously, could that article make it sound anymore like "Richards doesn't care about his team, his duty, or the playoffs."?

Nonsense. They make him sound like a teenage superstar high school kid ditching practice because he feels it's not necessary.

Thus is my problem with sports journalism today; pointless speculation. It's like watching TMZ or some other stupid show about celebrities.

Do you really think that Richards will be out of the lineup for game 1 if he is healthy? It's just a cold.

You're talking about 10/7 pounds that a professional athlete has more of than another professional athlete...... It not like a 10/7 pound difference between two regular people......

Richards out and Rinaldo in...

No, sorry, couldn't finish that thought. I have this feeling that we'll have a rough start to this series, but I'm still positive that we'll advance in the end. This team just never seem to want to make things easy.

To clarify any Matt Read confusion I may have helped cause Monday, he is not officially a Black Ace b/c of contract, but he is with team.
