Has anybody else noticed how effective Dan Carcillo is playing? Sure he has a reputation for taking bad penalties at the wrong time, but this guy really has shown me something.

First he CARES! When the Flyers were in the midst of their appathetic losing streak, Carcillo was one of a few that kept skating, finished his hits, and played hard. I recently watched a game on satellite where the announcers compared him to the rat...Kenny Linseman. I don't like that comparision since Kenny wasn't able to finish what he started (he called in Homer to finish it).

I think a better comparison would be Bob "the Hound" Kelly. Both Kelly and Dan Carcillo hustle at all times on the ice. They both bring an energy to the game and have similiar playing styles. Both were and are hated in oppossing buildings. Both Kelly and Carcillo were good middle weights and niether backed down to other teams tough guys.

Wayne Gretzky once claimed Carcillo will be a 30 goal scorer. I hope he is right, but we will wait to see.

Another attribute that I LOVE in Carcillo is his interest in Flyers history and culture. He grew a moustache in honor of Dave the Hammer Schultz and when Dan is interviewed he references the Broad Street Bully era very frequently. This tells me he understands the Orange and the Black's corporate culture and embraces the blue collar work ethic of "Over achievment" that runs so deep in The city's blood.

I hope Lav continues to believe in Carcillo and allows him an expanded role in our future.

Thank You Dan Carcillo for hustling on the ice, for supporting the EAGLES with a visit to their game, for adopting and studying what it means to play in Philadelphia, for that "Bob Kelly" edge you bring with your game.

Carcillo has grown on me which took some time as my favorite flyer was upshall. He is playing his hardest and keeping his penalties down this year, and actually drawing quite a few penalties himself. One player who is driving me nutty is hartnell. I wasnt a big fan, but last year i started liking his game, but his year he has taken a step back.

And who should a guy get on the back of the jersey? Have one plain black one that needs a name, I kinda want to do up Giroux, but im afraid he will get traded in a panic move.

He always has a good attitude too. He's always happy to see me every time I come over to the locker room. Teamates really like him. Great guy with a happy agressive attitude. People in philly should really appreciate his work more. He does a great job. Hits like crazy too. A great left wing to have with Betts and Lappy.
