Default new season

it is a new year and I have only watched two games but the bullies look pretty good. lots of young players that look like they can play in this league. looks like hextall knows what he is doing and hakstol does pretty well with young guys. they may not be the league elite but they look like a playoff team--which is an improvement.

they fly around the ice, they will beat a lot of teams with hard work, but how long can they keep it up ?

Good question. As always goal tending is the key in my mind and theirs are average. But a hell of a lot of goal tending problems start in front of the net. The days of bullies is gone and the Flyers have some young defensemen; I hope they get a bit of an identity and play tough in front of the net. That really isn't Hakstol's MO though so we will have to see.
As I say they aren't elite but they should provide some good games and look to be building a good team

I don't have the package but I get some and watch when they are on. The better the team does the more I get. My son and family live in MN and are hockey first people so there is more hockey talk than football talk

Watched them lose to the Pens and was disappointed in their play. Poor passing resulting in turnovers, letting guys get behind them, not digging anything out. Just looked overmatched. How long will Hakstol hold on??????
