Bill, if you’re the coach, what’s your lineup for the next game? Do you keep Raffl on line 1? I know Haks stuck to his lineup after game 1 and they bounced back nicely game 2. Does that work this time? It seemed it was going to be a favorable day the way we played the 1st period and the bad turnover by Raffl seemed recoverable.

Voracek committed a hooking penalty on an embellishing Sheary (feigning a high-stick) at 5:56.


Wait wut? We can argue about the lack of consistency of calls, but im pretty sure that was a legit high stick that made contact. Sheary had a cut.

This series is providing the young flyers with what they need which is experience .Anyone who actually thought they could win this series was over optimistic. G and Voracek are great players but they are not on crosby or malkins level.The Flyers with these 2 as their best players will need much more depth to be taken seriously. This yr draft i feel will be the tipping point.If they hit on these 2 or maybe 3 1st rd picks the flyers will have the depth they desperately need.imho.

1.Stay out of the box.
2.Stay out of the box.
3.Get TK on the top line.

Simmonds should be out of the lineup but I'll save my breath. I have no faith anyone on the team will say enough is enough with him.

That is correct. Flyers were fortunate they didn't get a 4 minute high sticking penalty there instead of a 2 minute hooking call.

Let’s be real, this team was never going to win a Cup this year no matter what. Patrick, TK, Provorov, Lindblom and Sanheim are getting valuable playoff experience. Hopefully Hak will do the right thing and get Hagg some too.

In the long run, that is what really matters. These kids are the future and soon kids like Morin, Hart, Frost, Myers and a lot of others will be joining them. This is just the beginning, have faith.

This season I'd say he could get us a 1st and a prospect.

After this series I don't think we're going to get offered that.

I can offer you a 1st edition Charizard, one of those pokemons, for Simmonds... with half his cap hit retained.

Totally agree. Not losing sight of the youth angle at all. Would love to see Hagg in for Manning.

On the other hand, the Flyers can skate with this team. They proved that in Game 2, and in the first period today. As a fan, I can’t help but be extremely annoyed and frustrated when I see them lay down at the first hint of adversity. I love the leaders on the team, but there were some gutless efforts shown today.

Honest and simple question. With Simmonds track record as a player and how good he has been pretty much his entire, why doesn't he get any benefit of the doubt from you? Why don't you consider that even with Simmonds sub par play, the remaining options to replace him are not better. Not even close.

Beating a dead horse here but it should have been done last year at the draft.
