Loller. The flyers are what 2, 3 points from 7th/8th place??? MVP carrying the team when they don't have a goalie or any other scoring presence

Flyers are currently 3rd in the division, meaning they hold a playoff spot. God forbid you stick around an entire season.

Brohan_Santana 02-06-2014 10:56 PM

The flyers are in 3rd. The caps are 3 points behind them. So your saying your team playing up to there potential is at best only 3 points from 7th place, then congrats. You should be happy

Not for a charging call. You can only pair the game misconduct with a major and there must be an injury to the other player.

And that hit was targeted 100% body to body

How would that work then? So let's say Brown got suspended a couple games, he's still suspended when they come back, so does he miss the entire Olympics or does he have to miss two games?

2002 was pretty awesome, but 2010 was the perfect story. Canada on home soil. Lost to the USA earlier, then trounced the commies in the medal round setting up the storybook showdown of Canada vs. USA. Game goes to OT and the Sidney freaking Crosby gets the gwg??

In terms of ending, yeah 2010 was more storybook going to OT like that. Both years were similar in the fact that Canada started off slow and get going as the tourney went on.

Matty,

I must say Matt Duchene has some wheels. Man, that kid can fly. He's been such an improvement for the Avs team the past two seasons. He's done a lot of work. I know he had a lot of talent at the start but there were some question marks about him. Cool to see that he's put it all together.

Also, sad to hear about Letang. Maybe he'll get a haircut now? Too soon? I'm sorry. I'm a Flyers fan after all.

Right? I had a feeling people weren't taking me seriously when I was talking about his improvement. He's always been fast, but what I've noticed lately is the strength he's added to that quickness. He's starting to be able to shrug off defenders as he breezes past them. You give him or MacKinnon a few feet of open ice to get started (they only need about a stride and a half), and say bye bye. They'll be gone. Duchene has also gotten a lot better in his own zone. Works hard every shift and is a great team guy.

The end of that third period was insane last night. Kudos to Mason for hanging in there.

daveshookme 02-07-2014 05:49 PM

Being a hockey player I'm always amazed at how fast they are to accelerate. Takes me maybe 3 or 4, and they're doubling my speed in half the time. Very impressive. Duchene is certainly a top tier in that respect from what I've seen of him.

:thumbsup I actually think MacKinnon might be a faster north-south skater, but Duchene has more mobility, or the ability to maneuver through spaces while still maintaining a high level of speed.

Fun anecdote that may be tl;dnr (and that I may have told already): My dad and I were friends with this hockey player who played for our local minor league club (Utah Grizzlies, this is when they were AHL - they are ECHL now). He lived in Utah during the offseason and was rehabbing an injury. As no other teammates lived in Utah during the offseason, he used to take my dad and I to the rink every morning one summer to skate with him. After he started getting better, we convinced him to pick up the pace a bit by coming and playing in our local men's league one night.

Now, mind you, the biggest knock on this guy - the reason many had said he didn't make it in the NHL - was his skating. He just wasn't very quick by professional standards. But even in our fairly competitive league, he would take a couple half-assed-still-rehabbing strides and outdistance everyone else no problem. Sometimes it takes seeing them as a big fish in a small pond to see just how TALENTED these guys really are.

Yeah the guy who runs the league I'm in has a son who played minors in Sweden for a bit but now he's 31 and just subs when we need somebody extra. Well, he played last week with us and it's just crazy how much better he is. I was pretty happy I was able to keep up with him for a shift or two at the end of the game, but he can still out corner me and his stick handling is just awe inspiring. That, and he had one of the most beautiful wrist shots I've ever seen. Even more than a lot of the pros. Just a real thing of beauty.

If the Bruins don't make a trade for a solid veteran defenseman I could see that happening.

rickyh24 02-08-2014 02:04 PM

I think they will make a move. I'm guessing they don't have a problem grabbing a rental since they are stacked with young defensemen and have their second best defensemen coming back next year off injury. I mean they know they have to make a move it's just a matter of what teams are willing to deal a guy that's about to want to get paid. The playoff situation isn't helping though. So many teams are still in it.

What do Flyers fans think it would take to get Meszaros to Boston? I'm interested in seeing how he plays alongside Chara again in the Olympics, and I think he's a UFA after this season. Plus he has ties to Chiarelli when they were in the Senators organization.

My guess is they would want some combination of a 5th-7th defenseman OR 6-9 forward and a very late draft pick.

This is an awesome feature on Capgeek:

http://capgeek.com/ufa-finder/?rentals=on&position_id=D

I hope that link works. It's a "rental" finder. Potential UFAs that are on a team not currently in a playoff spot.

I was going to say probably a defenseman prospect.

I'm over projecting of course, but that's what I think they would want/ask for. They don't have to give Mez away.

I got to talk to Brian Boucher and Bob Kelly on Thursday about a charity game here in AC that was today. Here was my story from Saturday on the event: http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/s...701739266.html

The event was really cool today. My story for tomorrow is on the firefighters and the ones I talked to were all stoked to be playing with these guys. I was able to chat during the first intermission so I could get my story in and went over to say he to Boosh. Dude is the nicest guy I have ever met and talked to for sure!

Wonder if it's just to let him rest coming back from injury or if it's serious. He looked good against FLA and TBL though.

Got my USA games set to record on my Tivo.

are we going to use spoilers when talking about these games or should I just avoid this thread for the next few weeks?

Good question. I don't care one way or another. I'll be able to watching Saturday and Sunday games live and I won't care about Thursday's game if we talk about it in here. Will probably be watching in some form on Thursday, radio if they have it, tv if the streaming is free or the game updates on nhl.com.

I won't be using spoilers I don't think...but then again won't be talking about the U.S games anyway so....

I mean, I can if you all want me to, but wasn't planning on it.

If you plan on watching it later and still want to come in here I'll use spoilers. I know I'll want to talk about it, or other games, during the day.
