I enjoyed Giroux's convo w/Boyle after Rupp's Jagr-mock

Anything Giroux said was awesome. I also loved the ending quote about not telling a hockey player that it is just a game. That was one of the best hockey quotes I ever heard.

Does anyone know where I could watch the series online? It was televised over here but I am not subsribed to the channel.

Mr. Universe!

I absolutely loved the last three minutes or so of the finale, with the quote about hockey players. Also, the last few minutes of Episode 2 where Giroux was skating as M83 played in the background. Killer.

Well, they gotta make a decision soon, by the looks of it...

Schenn for a Schenn?

Matt Read perhaps? All those GWG's gotta count for something.

Give Voracek a shot to keep his point streak going.

Matt Cefalu's picture

I dunno, Adam. Do you think Voracek and Giroux on the same line would reduce total shots on that line? Unless it worked conversely and encouraged one or the other to shoot more? Would be interesting to see.

only seen a little of him, but I love Harry Z's speed and hockey sense. If only he were bigger

Couturier. Stick is always on the ice, he always works hard... incredible kid.

jvr

Agreed, JVR has done very little to impress me since he got his contract.

(JVR)^3

I'd like to see Voracek pick it up too. He's shown flashes but has been making some bad plays in the defensive zone, IMO

Absolutely! He has been creating chances on the 4th line with Talbo and Shelley... going back with possibly read/voracek/jvr/simmonds will be huge for him. I look for tonight (assuming the rumor of him staying is true) to be a huge game for him. From time to time we saw him on the ice with more skilled players and he made things happen. The big thing for Couturier is to have someone else enter the zone first... he is deadly when the other team is pinned in their own zone. If they can do this regularly with him on the line, he can play along the boards and he knows how to get to open ice as well.

Surprisingly.. I haven't been impressed with Schenn so far anyway...

Adam Pardes's picture

No question. I've like Schenn's physicality on the forecheck, but I think Couturier has also earned playing with better linemates than Talbot and Shelley. Go get 'em, kid.

It's hard to tell. He's disappeared after showing some spark. I'll give him 10 more games before I can really give a fair assessment.

Matthew Brigidi's picture

He's a smart player. A lot of the impressive things that he does are off the puck. I think the Flyers in general need to figure how to use a lot of their players. Voracek is included in that.

Simmonds by far. It's fun to watch the "kids" but Simmonds energy is a breath of fresh air.

Bense's picture

Hrmmm straying away from my Couturier pick, I will go with Voracek. He is just missing something to become a huge star in this league. Maybe it's chemistry, who knows, but he looks great both defensively and offensively.

George Prax's picture

I literally haven't heard anything about Voracek so far. Almost forgot he was on the Flyers lol. He's been doing well?

Kim Pollock's picture

Read, I think. The kid's gonna do some big things.

Mark Trible's picture

Surprised at the lack of Andreas Liilja votes

Adam Pardes's picture

Can Mick Jagr get a little love? Holy dangles, Batman.

John Russo's picture

Simmonds and this kid from Russia. He's pretty nifty. I just wish he would score or else I'd call him a bust.

Larry DAngelo's picture

Simmonds no doubt, Voracek has been quiet but doing his job. Jagr is playing good but liked the pre-season Jagr more.
