his tenure was inconsistent garbage and two of our best defenders ended up regressing in horrible fashion, but keep telling yourself he was a great developmental coach. still waiting for the rebuttal..

Give me something concrete to work with. Something that actually needs rebuttal rather than continual rhetoric.

Yep. Still wet behind the ears going up against one of the all-time greats.

Why did our two best young defenders drastically regress under Crapstol?

I'm not going to continue a conversation with you on this unless the rhetoric stops.

Two devastating knee injuries is tough to come back from. I believe he was going to struggle to be a full time NHL player even without injuries.

not even arguing that. I just mean the kid should do what he feels he wants to do.

Still early in the season but the positive signs we are seeing makes it easier to go through the early season/new coach bumps. I can see these guys fully coming together and really hitting their stride in January. I think AV and the veteran coaching staff will get the most out of this group.

It was nice to see the other team having trouble with a forecheck for once.

Fans in Philly are fickle and frustrated cause they haven't won a Cup since 75 and a playoff series since 12.

In Toronto those numbers are 67 and 04, plus they have three guys making $11m. That's a recipe for rancor.

and they have NEVER made the finals in the post original 6 era. that is mind blowing

They were the only team to go the entire length of the last cba without making the playoffs. They've never won 4 playoff rounds in their lengthy history, and have not won 3 rounds since before expansion I believe.

And thats going to continue this year. Have a hard time seeing them go further with this roster. They rely on their young forwards too much. Games get tougher as the season goes on, 4 goals should win you a game not keep you in one.

19 year old Konecny vs Farabee today.

Farabee is noticeable in a positive way every time he’s on the ice. Farabee earned being on the top line. If Farabee is this good right now, this is kid that actually might be a legitimate sniper/super star much sooner than later.

Konecny was always a good player but his attention to detail wasn’t great. I never noticed Konecny cutting off passing lanes. I felt like Konecny cheated out of the zone a bit and didn’t pay attention to defense. He deserves to be benched when he was.

- SuperSchennBros


Farabee's been good beyond his years, but let's not get carried away.

TK is arguably this team's best player today.

The one where George gets dragged into setting up a foundation for Susan.

Another from that episode:


[Elaine groans in frustration as Kramer enters.]

Kramer: Hey. (notices Elaine) What's wrong?

Elaine: Oh, Peterman ran off to Burma, and now he wants me to run the catalog.

Kramer: Where?

Jerry: Myanmar.

Kramer: The discount pharmacy?

And yes, the finale was good. I appreciate it more now than I did when it originally aired. I think that had to do with anticipation.

Very small sample size, although I agree he looks good, positive impact all the way around. You are also understating Konecny, last two years over 20 goals and vast majority at even strength.
- ClaudeFather

I’m not understating anything. I’m comparing the two players at the same age.

LOL Someone actually wrote Giroux doesnt make his teammates better...... Raffl had 20 goals playing a season on his line. Raffl is a good soldier and I guy I want on the team but he isnt a 20 goal scorer.
