Is it possible that there can be one thread where is doesn't descend into a negative comment knocking the Flyers???? I'm no happy clapper by any means but this constant slating of the coaches/team/owners is getting so tiring.
I would actually question why the interest in the Flyers by a few on this forum when this is all they do. What good does it actually do? I mean after 6 years of being in the elite league very few of the wishes of this forum have been addressed so why keep banging the same drum?
Me personally because I have been going for about 25 years and seen when it was great and desperately want them to return to that
My only thinking is Todd simply can't manage on his own, but even if it's that why has he not got a player assistant coach, to me it's because he can't handle running the Forwards and D from the bench, if that's the case he shouldn't be in the job. It makes zero sense, but what does because they spend money on 2 bench coaches and sign no one like a Nickerson to help with the crowds which would help with the budget which would help with the team which would help with the crowds which would help with the budget which would help sustain long term success 👏👏👏
We just need to wait and see You can't right a whole squad of and never seen the guys on the ice Last year Braehead for example there fans thought they had pulled a great squad together and Finnerty lost his job I think we will do ok but the last thing I want to see is us getting bullied and no reply we need the policeman If we don't get one the ownership needs called out The coaches hands are tied they know what's needed but it's not their money You can't say Hutchins doesn't know what's required he has won the conference and finished 3rd in league same season Without a doubt the budget has been squeezed
Even if the budgets slashed it's no excuse for year in year out signing an unbalanced team with zero physicality you can still pick up big physical players with a reduced budget, that's down to Todd and Hutchins
I think this is the best way we can balance out our lines this year Gauthier -lablanc - mosey Schaber - heelis - bloodof Beattie - Stockton - finucci
Moyer - birzins Young - import Issacs - Wands
Personally I think this defence is extremely poor and by the sounds of thing we're adding in a player strait from collage I believe , I'm praying too god heelis and bloodof are hidden gems because we can't make our first line do the damage all the time , I know this 3rd line would work well as it worked well with scoony before Stockton got injured , I'm quite sad to see the coaches bring in players like finucci and mosey but we just need to move on and hope they play to there full potential , I see us finishing 8th and 2nd in the conference
Not having a go but do you really see 4 worse Rosters in the league than ours?
Agree with flyer007 even though I do think a couple won't be up to it but still once again it's going to come down to 3/4 positions that stop us kicking on, even if it's true that the budget has been cut it doesn't mean you can't get some size and power in the line up, looks to me like we've once again signed a group of ok players but all will be fairly similar and we have not signed a team, we have signed 1 maybe 2 bloody well balanced lines in 6 going on 7 years! That's absolutely shocking
