we have to give credit to the Sabres for playing well.

Also true. After we tied up the game they settled down and played well for the rest of the period and overtime.

It's the Sabres fault for taking it to us.

Also, this team is completely mediocre without Chris Pronger.

Here's one vote for everyone (minus JVR, I guess...can't think of any goals where he's been accountable).

I think the real problem is our first half of the season... things went too well and our whole organisation was like "this going to be a nice season". After the winter classic things went from bad to worse and no-one could turn things around.

  • Our PP is gone, 2 for 25
  • Iffy goaltending by Bob and Boosh
  • Certain players not showing up like Leino, Richards and Carter

Plus, us just backing into the playoffs didn't help. Also, not having Pronger is a big void on the blueline. Personally, I think he should do whatever he needs to do and get in there and play. Guys play hurt through worse.

Having her in storage is beyond sacrilegious.

I think overall we've played well in all of the games. Power play failure is, for me at least, the difference between winning and losing.

When you are operating at 7.6% on the PP in a series in which you've lost 2 games by a combined score of 2-0.....it has to be the PP.

2 minutes left in the game last night and we get a PP. Could've/should've won the game right there with all the damn momentum we had.

you have to give credit to the sabres for game one. the played a very solid game. 2nd game flyers lost sabres played hard but the flyers also missed some chances. game 5 was clearly bouchers fault letting in those 2 softies. At the same time, I dont think there is a reason to give up, Flyers have probably been the better team in the past 4 games. If Sabres lose game 6, you get game 7 at home in philly. What more could you ask for?

Goaltending isn't helping, but not the main reason.

No one individual`s fault, but the powerplay has been atrocious.

Not only has it not produced, but its failure has killed any momentum built by the Flyers on several occasions.

Exactly. Should we even expect to win without Pronger? He is the most valuable player for the team. He is the one player whose absence worsens the team the most.

It is a mixture of reasons:

Power play sucks
Homer resigned Leighton and Carcillo in the offseason instead of legitimately looking for a new goalie.
No Pronger
Homer trades for Versteeg who has been utterly useless since he got here. We had a winning formula before we traded for Versteeg. Why tinker with it?
Laviolette replacing Bob with Boosh after a single bad game.
Richards hasn't showed up
Carter is worthless
We don't play 60 minutes.....EVER.
Ryan Miller
Too many odd-man rushes.

The list goes on and on.

There is so much fail in this post. Versteeg has been quite good in the playoffs. Richards has been stellar defensively and has a couple of points now. The team has played much better than in the regular season so I don't agree they haven't played 60 minutes, they have, but sometimes Buffalo has upped their play. It happens all the time. Carter has one of our 2 power play goals before injury. Bob was replaced because according to Meltzer, he had an emotional meltdown. It sounds like Bob hit a wall after a whirlwind season.

Just keep trying to make a career in journalism, you have all the negativity to do it!

Paul Holmgren may have to go if Flyers get knocked out in first round. Gave up too many draft picks for nothing except Pronger.

Some will not like this but give the God bless America thing a rest, Kate died a long time ago. The Flyers have not won with it since 1975.

Flyer are playing just as they did before Pronger.

I actually agree with this. I love Kate Smith and the singing of God Bless America, but it used to only be sung in a game 7. Now it is sung at every playoff game (and I think I have seen in the regular season too). Limit it to game 7 (or elimination games if you really want to use it a lot). That way it is more special and will have a better "pump-up" effect on the crowd and team. If you do it every game it will eventually (if it hasn't already) become less meaningful.
