Flyers why you don't score score on a 5 on 3? Why is Emery still your goalie? Vincent Lecavalier who? What deference?
Also Buffalo wins!
1. Because Berube insists on giving bottom 6 forwards time on the top PP unit... He is a horrible coach in that regard. Unable to produce chemistry within lines because he is constantly changing them from game to game trying to "shake things up". I am sick of seeing Zac Rinaldo and Chris VandeVelde on the ice at the same time as a Giroux.
2. Because Mason is rocky, and unable to do back-to-back games. After getting blown up the night before, there's no way Mason would get the nod vs the Habs the next night.
3. Vinny is dead. He is not effective and looks invisible on the ice. He still has his wicked shot, but that's his only redeeming quality, and he's a huge liability on the ice.
4. It is known that the Flyers are struggling on the blue line all year. We've been juggling 3 AHLers into our lineup each game for the past month and a half.
5. Go Sabres! They don't want the #1 draft pick I guess.

Are the Pens really this good, or shall we chalk it up simply to early season buffoonery and trickery?

On another note, Ex-Flyers coach is 12-4-2 with Nashville thus far.

Flyers are doing their best to acquire a #1-3 draft pick this upcoming offseason, and I am already totally okay with that considering we are in Hextall's rebuild phase. Fuck you Paul Holmgrem for getting us into this mess. It's akin to what Obama inherited after Bush's second term was over, and having to essentially rebuild the entire nation's economic policies from the ground up.

But please, for the love of god, can we somehow negotiate a move with Vinny Lecavalier (or just make him a scratch)? He's so bad and he brings down anyone and everyone Berube tries to mix him into a line with. Literally, he has been on every line and put in every position (offensive faceoffs, defensive faceoffs, pp1, pp2, not the pk, etc) and he makes everyone on the ice play worse. There are plenty of figures to prove this if you'd like me to go ahead and post them. Math is not wrong.

I feel really bad for Steve Mason. I hope this terrible season doesn't get too much inside his head; he's been outstanding for what he's had to put up with in terms of the bullshit defense he has helping him.

ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday announced goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov would be joining the Ducks on a tryout after an injury to goalie Jason LaBarbera.

Bryzgalov, 34, is expected to report to Anaheim sometime Wednesday to see the Ducks doctor, an Anaheim spokesman said.

Bryzgalov began his NHL career with the Ducks. A second-round pick (No. 44) in the 2000 NHL Draft, Bryzgalov went 26-23-8 with the Ducks from 2001-07. He was the backup goalie when Anaheim won the Stanley Cup in 2007. He shares the Ducks record with Jean-Sebastien Giguere with three straight shutouts in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2006.

He split last season with the Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild, and played nine games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Wild.

Bryzgalov has 220 wins, a 2.56 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 457 games with the Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Oilers and Wild.

"I want to sit down and have a conversation with him and see what all the big hubbub's about," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "But the one thing I do know about him is that he stops the puck. He didn't have a great experience in Philly, but he was tremendous in [Arizona] and he was tremendous when he was here and he was really good in Minnesota. When he does come in … if he's still in shape, he's a really good goaltender."

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf, a teammate during that 2007 Stanley Cup run, was happy with the decision to bring in Bryzgalov.

"He's a great goaltender," Getzlaf said. "When he's on he plays so well. I think when you're given the situation such as this, you bring him on a tryout, hopefully he realizes -- he's been sitting at home -- he's going to have an opportunity to possibly be back in the NHL again."

LaBarbera has a broken bone in his hand; the Ducks expect him to be out two to three weeks. The Ducks recalled goalie Igor Bobkov as a backup to Frederik Andersen. Goalie John Gibson remains out with a groin injury.

Anaheim also announced that defenseman Eric Brewer will be out four to six weeks with a broken bone in his foot, from a blocked shot. Defenseman Clayton Stoner took part in the morning skate and is expected to return to the lineup when the Ducks play the Flyers on Wednesday at Honda Center.
