#658240 NHL Draft 2015 @ Sunrise, Florida

Posted by PenaltyKiller on 06 June 2015 - 03:40 PM

Yeah it's highly likely that the top 4/5 will go that way, but outside of those it'll be a crapshoot. Like you I'm mostly excited about Provorov but would be fine with a nice forward like Rantanen or Barzal.


I have heard a lot of mixed things, mostly negative, about Crouse. Mind sharing any insight you have regarding him? From what I've heard, he's a big, gritty forward that doesn't seem to have much upside apart from being a bottom line depth guy.

Sorry I haven't been around in forever.


My insight is pretty much the same. He's controversial because his production for a potential top 10 pick is below average, but scouts rave about his game. He's supposedly a safe bet to be a NHL player, the question is what is his upside? Is he just going to top out as a third line checking forward or does he have room to grow? Some imagine him as the perfect complimentary winger to better players like G and Voracek while his lack of offense is hard to overlook for some like me. He is a good goal scorer, but I'd hesitate to take him that high. He was logging big minutes and has a man's body yet still couldn't dominate in juniors?? To me that's questionable.


I think he's probably more of a third line checking forward which really wouldn't be terrible because we need defensive forwards, but I think there are likely to be players with higher upside at 7.

#631493 2011-12 Flyers Predict-a-Score Game

Posted by The_Mighty_Tim on 29 September 2011 - 02:16 PM

2011-12 Flyers Predict-a-Score Game

Back for it's fifth season - it's the Flyers Predict-a-Score Game for the 2011-12 season. Think you predict the outcome of the Flyers games this season? Well, lets see how accurate you are compared to your FMB friends. Who will join aphockey, Kappy and two-time Champion ericmedc in the Predict-a-Score Hall of Fame? Will it be you?

It works like this. Simply tell me what you think the score will be in each game, and score points accordingly. You will score 1 point for getting the score right, 1 point for getting the winning team right and 1 point for getting the goal difference correct. This means up to 3 points per game are up for grabs. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to earn double points by predicting the All Star Game result. Further details will be available nearer the time. The person(s) with the highest score at the end of the season will be crowned the 2011-12 FMB Predict-a-Score Champion.

So, I hope you will all enjoy! Standings will be available via the link in my signature!

Official Rules

1. Predictions must be made either in this thread, the appropriate GDT or sent to me via PM. Predictions made elsewhere will not be counted.
2. Predictions for a game must be made before the game starts.
3. Occasionally, mistakes may occur. If you spot something amiss in the scores or the rules, let me know, and I'll sort it out as best I can. I'm only human. However, the decisions of me (or, if I'm not available, my designated subsitute) are final.
4. I will try to update the scores and stats after each game. But like I said, I'm only human, so don't worry if results aren't up immediately.
5. This is meant to be a harmless bit of fun, with nothing at stake, save bragging rights. So, please don't take it too seriously, and do not cheat. If I find you cheating for whatever reason, I will disqualify you from this game, and possibly future games.
6. Have fun!

 I really want Provorov, but I fear he goes in the 4-6 range. He could be the horse the Flyers need. I'm going to be underwhelmed with a Crouse or Zacha when a potential elite talent is right there for them to try to nab. I really hope they do try to move up.

Rags beat Pengies in 5.

I abhor both teams but Rags are the lesser of 2 evils.

Have I been waiting for this day or have I been waiting for this day? The troll argument no longer exists, he is an absolute bum and only proved he's exactly what the "Richie haters" saw. Well, we sure got our day, didn't we? I can already hear the "but he won 2 cups argument," but please tell me how big of a factor he was in them. 29 years old and his drive is gone, what a joke. I'll give him 1 more year before he's out the league after someone gives him a feeler year. 


Good riddance, Richie. 

What did he prove? He was a very good player  with the Flyers and they would've had a Cup with him if they had better goaltending in the finals. What happened to him now does not change those facts. He was not the reason for the lack of a Cup in Philly. LA fans have reason to complain about his play, but Flyers fans never did. His drive was never an issue here. He was a fan favorite here because of his heart and drive. It was only when he was traded that the Holmgren fans decided he was a no good bum that had to go. Clear revisionist history.


Those who liked the trade from day one can certainly pat themselves on the back because the Flyers did win the trade and they were right about that, but you can't use his current situation to prove that he always sucked. It doesn't work that way.
