  3. Have to admit , I am liking teams like the Flyers not doing well because they have been known to make BIG changes and make BIG trades in the past . My team could use some of their players i.e. Provorov . What do you think it would take for Toronto to get him ?
    I do realize it is stupid for the Flyers to trade a young asset like him , but one can dream lol

  10. I was dreading it reaching the point where we got our own video. #loseforhughes JK, we'd probably lose the draft lottery anyways.

  11. 13.8 % PP is rancid + 75.2PK rancid,, that is 3rd worst and 4th worst in the entire league , with both specialty teams so horrid well welcome to the basement of the league. Add in keys players with horrid +/- Ghost -20,,Vora -18,,prov -15,,Simm -16. When a absolute key player like Ghost is on pace for more minus then total points, yikes.

  13. i dont want to say we are 2006 bad but we are 2006 bad. and we upgraded the depth with jvr but hes been a non factor all year. giroux and carter heart are the only players who showed up this year. and poor heart, hes playing so good and his record dosent do him any justice.

  16. I don't even know what we need to do at this point, but a bunch of moves need to be made. Lose for Hughes baby

  17. I got into hockey in early 2010. I watched the Flyers charge to the final. They were so much fun to watch. Physical yet skillful. Briere, Pronger, Richards, Kimo, Gagne, Hartnell. Those were the days eh

  18. The Flyers need Ed Snider. The franchise may never recover imho

  20. Literally everything about this team has been bad this season. Goaltending. The forwards. The defense. The PP. The PK. Overtime. Nothing has worked out. And it’s easy to say now that they suck but this was a mid level playoff team over the past 5-7 years. And now they’re suddenly the worst team in hockey? It doesn’t follow. It just seems like the perfect storm of literally everyone struggling and underachieving at the same time. And it’s snowballed out of control.

    Sadly, I still don’t think there’s anyway the Flyers actually get Hughes. I could see them railing off 8 straight meaningless wins at the end of the year to go from a bottom-3 spot in the standings to like 7th or 8th. And even if they do suck from start to finish, we’re not gonna win the lottery. But adding Kakko or Cozens or Dach would certainly be welcome.

  21. Coaching is the issue. Bottom line

  22. It is always funny when a flyers fan talks trash to penguin fans. Just show them this video lol. And the 5 rings the pens have compared to 2

  23. All your numbers can't account for how bad the D has been defensively too. They're a mess.

  24. Should of mention PP and PK.

    Reply
  25. All you would have to do is dig just a little deeper to identify the Flyers problem and it's really quite easy. Their special teams are atrocious. Their PP is 3rd worst (13.3%) in the league and their PK is the 4th worst (75.2%) in the league. While the PK is an issue it's roughly the same as it was last. The PP however is a full 7 points worse than last years and it looks every bit that bad. That coupled with the bad goal tending and you wind up where the Flyers are. There is no chance they make the playoffs.

  26. Downfall? What downfall? I don’t see no downfall. This team hasn’t changed since 1975!

  27. The ironic part is they DO COMEBACK from multiple goal defects the just lose in overtime after lol they’ve come back at least three or four times from more then a three goal deficit going into the third versus buffalo I think tampa Calgary and someone else I could have those other teams wrong but they end up losing those games in overtime outside the buffalo one which I think is that one win in the column. Good work hockey guy

  29. It would be sick if you did a video on why you think the Blue Jackets haven't won a playoff series yet, (or speculations you may have). It may just give my depressed playoff experience some closure lol

  30. The NHL is a pure skating league now .. Flyers have a bunch of talented players that re not very quick + they're still entrenched in their never-ending search for a goalie .. lol

  31. Season’s over. Tank for the first overall draft pick

  32. Did anyone suggest putting Giroux in goal?

  33. Philadelphia 75ers keeping the streak alive.

  34. The first thing the flyers need to do is get rid of Hmgren, Then get rid of Clarke. All they do is get rid of the talent we have and watch them win cups elsewhere. An overall flip of a year with pretty much the same team tells me there is something going on in the locker room. Bad blood somewhere or a player or two are causing problems off the ice.
