I hate that Versus has 2 ex-flyers commentators discussing this series.
At least Keith Jones tries to be semi unbiased though...

Every Buffalo goal was scored when I was off the clock or within minutes if leaving the break room. The rest? During an otherwise uneventful day of work.

Next jersey has to be a Gerbe. Freakin BEAST.

Another good -- the puck movement on the GWG and the shot by Weber. JUST GOT IT THERE and let the forward put it in.

I have no problem saying I never once gave Gragnani a chance in the NHL.

Very impressed.

Butler, Weber, Myers, and Grags are a great young corps.

Not too mention the guys on the farm.

I was doing alot of when they were drafting dman after dman, but I guess that's why I'm not a NHL GM.

Yeah, that didnt look good at all. I'm guessing he got a major slice, hoping it didnt cut any tendons.

I wanted to edit a comment about Regier's shift in draft strategy, but wasn't sure how to put it. Good point. It's finally paying off.

It looked like it was more on his shin than anything.

I am told BUF's Jason Pominville did NOT suffer Achilles tendon damage on that skate cut but his prognosis is still unknown at this time.

That was my first thought, it did look like it was more on the side of the leg than the back though... /hopefully.

I agree Grags is winning me over. Not sure I'd make him a regular next season, but he's got my vote for a #7 spot.

For all the love for Ennis...there's just too many times out there he looks like Afinogenov, trying to do everything himself. Oddly enough, his two goals weren't off of "OMG individual effort beating 10 flyers!!!" but on a simple "get the puck to the net" and a rebound.

If he can learn when to try and beat defenders, and when to use his teammates and use his speed to chip pucks in and get to them he's gonna be a real special player. He just has to work on getting the Afinogenov elements out of his game and get more of the Briere elements in.

I completely agree about Ennis, however... he's a rookie. he'll learn and adapt as a player.

As weird as it sounds, I almost wish he had spent another year with Dineen.

No way he's able to get up, not to mention walk, if it's achilles. Hoping no ligament damage and only a flesh wound.
