I don't disagree with your comments waterboy but at the end of the day we didn't do any better with Matt at the club. Sure it was more entertaining and we all loved him for his no nonsense play and sticking up for the team but he was a fleeting presence, and the Flyers still a bottom half of the table club.
Off course we did better it was more entertaining and we had more money coming through the door. Not exactly a poor return on the investment was it.
Tell me this who would you want in a flyers top next season Thinel or Rosehill?
rosehill on 3 goals this year and probably one of the highest paid players,give me thinel every day
Quick whistle from Halas down bottom end washed out a goal in first...Puck was never or even close to being frozen, Halas just cannot referee a game.
His on positioning during the game is awful, he should be close to the goals at moments like that but he was at the hash marks against the boards with about 3 or 4 players between him and the goals. He had no idea where the puck was he just blew the whistle assuming the keeper had it.
The guy needs some serious help/training because he has no idea how to control a game, look at the situation with the little brawl close to the end. Fine it happens but he then sees Keith challenge Paquet who is in the penalty box (things were really close to boiling over then) its easy to solve give him a ten minute misconduct and dressing room him. But no he just lets him come back on at the end.
The fights at the end and clan clear their bench and then our guys follow suit that could really have kicked off!
wasnt keith who started it at the penalty boxes,paquet asked him to dance when they got out the box
Though paquet was very good last night. Haines and moyer seemed back to their best. Dingle was just dingle. Brooks was very poor i though. Schaber the second best player on the team,the guys an absolute beast
He has 6 full seasons behind him very shortly i think he has had more than a fair chance and here is a question, If he were not at Flyers next season which other EIHL team would grab him .....Imo.....Nobody.
Forwards- Dingle- best two way center in the league and our franchise player Fox- great on our special teams,25 goal scorer so a must bring back Brooks- good player Schaber- our second heart and soul guy,been our best player since christmas Stockton- great size down the middle and great on our special teams. Has to come in full health though
Defence Paquet- an absolute must,been our best defenceman all year,love the grit he plays with Moyer- smooth skating defenceman but probably sometimes over plays the puck. A leader for a team like fife though so a must re-sign
Goaltender Owen- say no more
British A complete overhaul of the british players to make us a real contender for the league. Bring moore from dundee. Id try and steal swindlehurst from manchester and show him that we mean business next year. Id love us to play 4 line hockey. Id sign ben davies to play on our top three lines so he can get back to be a scoring forward in this league. Id have caly robertson and chad smith on the bench and when we're winning comfortably id throw dingle/stockton between them and roll a fourth line.
