The Flyers need to change Hextall's title from general manager to miracle worker.

#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!

Enjoy!

#658278 I love Ron Hextall

First he gets Sam Gagner and a 3rd or 4th round pick for Grossmann and Pronger's contract. Now he's convinced Boston to give up a 3rd rounder for one of the worst forwards in the league in Zac Rinaldo. So this is what it feels like when your team is ran by someone competent!

#658243 NHL Draft 2015 @ Sunrise, Florida

Posted by PenaltyKiller on 09 June 2015 - 02:25 PM

What do people thinks about this trade.

 

#7 overall to Edmonton for # 16 and #33 and #57

 

or #7 to San Jose for #9 and #39

The value is fine, but those deals only happen after they see who is on the board with their selection. Say Hanifin drops to 7. You don't want to be kicking yourself for moving back to #16 just to get some more picks. You only move back if you're not enamored with any of the players and believe you can get one just as good at 16. Moving back to #9 is a lot better, but you still need to see who is there before you make the move.

#658066 COBURN TRADED

Posted by KyleBucket on 02 March 2015 - 08:22 AM

We're going to have a parade under Hextall. At a very minimum, we'll at least have a franchise that can sustain constant success because we'll have a farm system again. I just hope he resigns MDZ to a reasonable contract.

#658048 Michael Del Zotto is a Flyers free agent find

Posted by RealAlex01 on 01 March 2015 - 05:23 PM

If Ron Hextall was behind the Del Zotto signing I can really get behind Hextall being our general manager.  Del Zotto has been clutch.

#657990 Kings Waive Richards

Posted by pat-1 on 31 January 2015 - 11:18 AM

I agree with 52 on this.
This team has done nothing but get worse since these trades, and a few other poor decisions . I just can't agree how we so clearly won these trades.
I'm also not so sure that Richards would be the same player he is now if he never gets traded. I think going from his leadership role here to the Kings to not being very important to their lockeroom probably hurt him a lot. just the whole way Holmgren treated him in fact . I know when I'm not happy with my employment position, my work suffers. I just can't figure any other reason for such a huge loss of heart.

Also , Kyle is right about our defense being the most of our troubles now. We were though, a far better team defensively with Richie and Carts as our centermen. They made up for a lot of poor d-men that were here then .

Anyway, one last thing is it really burns me up when I see people saying good riddance and other stupid things like that( not just here , other places as well) . Richie played hard here for us and did not want to leave here and deserves more respect than that .

Spam accts were using sigs to post links, propaganda etc after the move from the NHL servers to Invision servers thus the move to control it.

 

Tell me how large your sig is and I'll set threshold to accommodate it but no larger, some of the sigs on the board were becoming obnoxiously large.

 

I'll review the action dates of your current status and shoot you an email.

So this is what it's like to have a GM that knows what he's doing?
