Scott Gordon is now the Philadelphia Flyers' interim coach. But could he end up as their next head coach? #NHL http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-41049340-4


Please, yes. One less Metro team to worry about

Gordon was more qualified than Cappy and Doug.

Chuck Fletcher says Scott Gordon will coach Flyers for rest of season. Also said he never asked Blackhawks for permission to talk to Joel Quenneville

He’s had a ton of gigs since then and was highly touted in all honesty when he took the job with us. Maybe it’s his time...

Good article in The Athletic on Koivula:

“He’s a big kid but he’s got real nice hands,” one scout for a Western Conference team said after a recent Bridgeport viewing. “Half a step, that’s what I see. Another half a step in his stride and you could have a real solid NHL player.”

https://theathletic.com/7...ort-after-move-to-center/


He's been one of the players that makes watching the BPort games worth it. He makes solid plays at both ends of the rink. I know there are knocks on his skating, but really, it's not a terribly noticeable flaw when you're watching the games. Part of that is he's usually just in the right spots anyway, even after his move to center, which you'd think would take a lot of time to adjust to.

Hey, calm down, sport. Do you have any idea how much he has to shell out for kids toys for his wife a year?

He's, sadly, probably the best center in our system right now

If they get a high-ish pick, they better hope there's a good center left on the board.

He sounds like it chief. Center is a huge need and hopefully center is best player available when Isles pick.

It’s the Flyers not really looking for a positive ending to that story. Just stating facts the guy was consisdered the next big nhl coach then he came to the Islanders... 😂

Yeah, it'd be an unexpected surprise...double if he ends up sticking at center. No idea if he'll make it in the NHL, but, at least in the AHL, he's been a good story this year.

I would think he could at least make a 3C? Isles sure seem to have their fair share of prospects with skating issues. Garth seemed to really key of this fact in his drafting.

MDC AHL player of the week...maybe there's hope?!? "Dal Colle scored five goals on five shots in two games for Bridgeport last week, including the first hat trick of his pro career."

Are you seeing this Barry? I think playing on the lousy 4th line got MDC really motivated. Barry is a genius.

Would be a real shame if he did not get a serious look with the Isles this year.

I wrote him off on his last trip up to the bigs, however, I'd like to see him with a couple of guys that can give him the puck - as a few guys on here have suggested. The guy obviously has a nose for scoring, which we desperately need.

Yea, no doubt. I watched highlights from his game against Providence and he scored a nice 2 on 1 goal and a garbage rebound goal ala Anders Lee. I think he has earned a better look for sure. And glad he's still digging after being short sighted while with the Isles.

Would have been a nice reward to play MDC on the 2nd line instead of Moose when he got called up. Would have also giving the coaching staff a better idea on MDC as well. Ovie would have struggled on the 4th line with Gionta.

@AlanFuehring
This was @MDalColle71’s resume last weekend as he wins CCM/@TheAHL Player of the Week for the first time.

• 5 goals on 5 shots
• +5 rating
• 1st pro hat trick on Friday
• 1st OT-winner on Friday
Every goal he scored gave the #SoundTigers a lead


I thought the bolded was kinda cool too. Irrelevant, really...but still pretty cool.
