#655762 The Current Team 2013

Posted by Chicken-N-Raffls on 20 December 2013 - 11:22 PM

^^ Lol In the voice of James Earl Jones... C'mon man


Edit: that was for Toughfighter

alright what's your issue with me? what do you want me to say? this team is best team in the world, they will win a cup? what? what's your problem?



what do you want to hear? are you that fixated with these players that do nothing?

Alright, let's go down the list.

What's my issue with you? No matter what this team does, you will find something to complain about.


What do I want you to say? Nothing. We've all heard everything you have to say 50 times over. You're a broken record.


This team is the best, will win a cup. Despite how you try to pretend everyone else here is a bunch of fanboys, I haven't heard anyone say anything close to either of those things. You are the one who likes to make broad sweeping and over generalized statements like that.


What do I want to hear? Intelligent criticism and praise where either is due.


Am I that fixated on players that do nothing? No. I'm a fan of the Flyers. Some players I like more than others. Some I really enjoy, others I would like to see traded. Pretty simple. And I wouldn't call 5 goals in one period doing nothing. Maybe I'm just the glass half full type.


Everyone here is entitled to their opinion, whether anyone agrees or not, but the fact that you NEVER have anything good to say, coupled with your all encompassing statements like "we need faster players" or "this team is a bunch of goons" is why people call you a troll, whether or not you actually believe what you say. I've seen several people here respond to you in a reasonable and logical way, but when you continue with the same negativity and tired lines over and over, don't be surprised when people laugh you off and label you a troll.

"When you've got Dean and you've got Hexy, the philosophy will be close to the Flyers," Gagne told during the Final. "They like the way the Flyers play, what they put on the ice every season, season after season, and the team having a chance to do something good in the playoffs every year. I think it's a good model. We all know it's been awhile since (the Flyers) won, but they are always one of the top teams.

"Dean and Hexy may not be doing the exact same thing (in L.A.), but they have taken pieces from it to help this team."

The basis of the Flyers' model that Lombardi clearly copied has more to do with developing a winning culture more than anything else. He gained an appreciation of the model by getting inside the mind of ex-Flyers' general manager and Hall of Fame player Bob Clarke during his three-year stint as Philadelphia's chief scout for the Western Conference.

"Sitting in his office was a great education," Lombardi said. "Every third word to come out of his mouth is 'team.' If you ever want to see venom come out of his mouth, just talk about something that is selfish. There is nothing that irritates him more than selfishness. It's pure anger."

Lombardi is getting to be the same way -- one Stanley Cup won't change him.

"When you have a culture, it transcends generations," Lombardi said. "It's passed on and everybody feels it."

I don't usually bump threads like this, but I think it's really time for a change. If Holmgren wanted to "change the culture" of the locker room in Philly, it should have started with himself. He hasn't changed anything other than the players that wear orange and black. Attitude and winning are contagious. LA said they knew they were going for the cup when they picked up Richards and the mindset all year has probably been focused on that. Richards said the Kings were the closest team that he's ever been a part of (go ahead and take shots at him instead of the take away point). I don't think it's coincidence that Lombardi is so team focused and he has produced a close knit group that wanted to play for each other and would take nothing less than a cup.

Hello guys!
I'm super newbie here but am a veteran in Flyers rooting. Let'me introduce myself in brief.
I've been folowing Philly since late 1980s. I don't remember reason why but Flyers became my favourite hockey team.
It was almost impossible then to watch any NHL team games in USSR if they didn't play vs Soviet teams. And there wasn't Internet in USSR there too ;-) So... I rooted for Flyers by reading short news in Soviet newspapers. But things are changing and now it's easy to find any hockey game in the Internet. So I can watch all 82+ games/season every year. And I always dreamed of watching Flyers playing in person...
Sometimes dreams can come true... and, yes, I'm visiting Philly soon and I have tickets on Devils-Flyers game!!!
I'm almost happy, guys.
I'm 37 yo Russian guy. I'm a programmer if it matters.
Okay, that's all for my first message here. Hope you'll let me become part of you organisation ;-)

Sorry, @LatentC. It's really the signature that's difficult for me, not the avatar. I hate to admit that I can't even read your posts because it's so distracting. Sorry, that's my issue though. I apologize. Don't take it personally.

Since the regulars are introducing themselves to the newer posters I'll say hi. I'm Flyerfan52 (FF52 or just 52 for short). I've been on the board for a few years through multiple change-overs.

I'm also the old guy on the board (52 being my birth year) as I started cheering for the Flyers in '69 when they were pretty well a Western Canadian team due to the roster. As shown in my avatar I'm from Manitoba. I'm always in game day chat & pop in @ least once a day to read the threads. I don't post as much as I used to but I read posts & am not shy to add or argue points. As others said, we don't always need to agree as other takes on a point produce ideas for consideration & keep the conversation fresh.

So welcome to the newer posters. There's a good bunch of people here (admin, mods & posters) so you're welcome to chime in on anything. We all share a passion for the Flyers so it's like a family. & like a family we will never all agree on anything but that 1 thing we have in common.

Let the team stay together, put the Letingitin back in goal more often and lets get a top 5 draft pick this year.


The scouts are solid and should be able to help us restock the team with talent. And the Flyers Select J Druin....


Ps. if you are going to take a player #2 overall that you know needs time, give him time, don't trade him when he is ready to break out.

No one loves Coburn like he is Pronger or Doughty. He used to be massively hyped, but now I find most fans are indifferent. Right now he is the Flyers 2nd best defender. The Flyers do need more point producers (especially after Timonen is gone) but Schenn, and Grossmann, Streit, and MacDonald need to go before Coburn. I don't know why he is singled out over those disasters.
