    Hope we don't underestimate them because of their key injuries...

    that's a legitimate concern, but frankly, with 6 days off, and a 1-7-0 record, they don't get to take this team lightly. they had 6 days off from games, they worked their ***** off in practice, Vinny will be back to boost the offense (hopefully).

    if they take this game lightly, it's a huge slap in the face to Chief and the rest of the organization.

    I think Hank being out is a lose-lose for the Flyers. If they come out and get shut-down again, they will be even more down not being able to score on a rookie with a bad team. But if they come out and score a ton, you cant get too confident because it was against a rookie goalie...on a bad team. No matter what happens tonight, because Lundquist isnt in it, nothing great can come of it.

    that's really quite ridiculous.


    if the fans want to say it doesn't matter if they score a ton tonight, big ****ing deal. as long as it gives the players confidence, that's all that matters.

    you really think they care how they win or who they are playing? they just need a goddamn win and to score some goals. that's their focus.

    I'm not worried about what the fans think. Sure it will be annoying not knowing if they scored because they are improving or because they faced a rookie goalie on a bad team. But really, do you think the players will feel much better? Would you? If you faced a kid in skee ball, would you feel good about beating him?

    Are you comparing a professional sport, a sport that is a job for these guys, in which they are playing like absolute garbage, to me playing a child in skee ball?


    I'm sure you've seen Fast and Furious. It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning is winning.


    All the Flyers should be concerned about is getting a win. Does it count less in the standings just because they are playing an injured opponent? You can only play the games on your schedule. It's not like Berube can call up the NHL and say, "You know what, these guys are decimated. If we win, we won't feel good about it. Give us a tougher opponent tonight."


    It doesn't matter who they are playing. I don't care if the Rangers called up their entire AHL roster to play this game. That's not something they can control, so that's not something they should be concerned with. The Flyers need to come out hard, give a full 60 minutes, and if they win, use it as momentum to carry into the next game.


    The Flyers are 1-7-0. They've lost 7 out of 8 games. They don't get to decide whether they feel good or not if they win tonight. This is the game that came up on their schedule, so this is the game they have to play.


    They need to win. Period. Does it feel better when you beat a seemingly tough opponent? Sure. But that's not how athletes are supposed to think. What you're speaking of, is exactly how teams end up going out there and just throwing their sticks on the ice expecting to win and end up losing.


    You take all your opponents the same way. You go out, give it everything you have, fight for every inch, and earn the outcome. The way you play should not be dictated by who your opponent is that day.

    I think your taking what I was saying the wrong way. Everyone keeps saying that the issue the Flyers are having is confidence. IMO When things are going against you the way they are now for the Flyers, a win against such a bad team with a rookie goalie isn't going to do much to build confidence. Maybe if Lundquist was in it would. I'm not saying they should take it lightly, I just think its unfortunate. IMO I think they will come out strong with Lecavalier back in the line-up, and they will win. I also think they will win against the Islanders, and they will begin to build a little confidence. But I would hate for them to lose either that game or the next and begin to question how good they could be because of the wins they got were against poor or average opponents.

    I get what you're saying, I just don't agree. At 1-7-0, any win should build confidence. I'm not saying the Flyers should jump for joy after this game if they win; but they should use it as momentum into their next game. I don't care if it's 1-0, 7-0, 5-4....it's a win, use it as fuel to want to play even better the next game.

    not excited about Schenn centering line #2. Schenn is TERRIBLE at faceoffs, just flat out terrible. I predict that 2nd line being useless. Schenn and McGinn arent very offense saavy, they need to be a part of an already talented line.

    But the 3rd line of Read - Couturier - Simmonds is awesome. Thats 3 players right where they belong, and they should do a great job of it.

    Excited to see Raffl on the 1st line

    there has been 0 visible improvement and we aren't skating well still ... i think we are just that speed, and might need to accept it.

    this still looks terrible, and with 6 straight days of practice, i do expect crispness - not what i'm seeing

    "this team needs anything good to happen" - coatsy
