I am truly excited to see how this young flames team is playing so far.
I think Monahan and Baertschi will be very good players in this league. Been a fan of Baertschi for quite some time.

As expected...

Peter Laviolette has been fired by the Flyers


A bit early, then again, when you go 0-3 paired with 2 mediocre seasons, this can happen.

Flyers have the most expensive blue line in the league

I feel like they should have done this in the offseason if he was on that short of a leash.

THIS. Simply because the personnel available was much better. Some of the media guys predict the GM is next to go. This flyers team has too much drama and something needs to be done

Last call for GM's to throw some wild trade offers at Holmgren before he's fired too.

Nice win last night, showed some fight to come back and take the lead even though they gave up a late goal. The atmosphere must be a little different with tort int he locker room.

You know a message is sent when the twins are separated

The team completely changed after this.

I've been waiting for that to happen for YEARS.
Not necessarily to keep them apart all the time, but to separate the Sedins at times you increase your second and third line depth and give them a chance to play with other line mates. Separating the Sedins has to be challenging to defend against, since it hasn't really happened in the past and there's no tape on how they play with others.

Great win for Lack though. He needed to get his first win done to build that confidence.

And look what happens they get separated and each of them generate a goal... Tort's is doing the right things so early in the season and showing the players hes not scared to make changes and it doesn't matter who it is. They have been so missing that for years!!

Garrison is looking great as well getting tons of ice and it's great seeing him put the points up in the first 3 games.

Too much drama and still not enough goaltending. And we complain Vancouver is a goalie graveyard...

not just that, but starting to see a glimpse of the old booth, power moves off the boards. A strength of his that was needed when the trade was made

Picked out two great articles my daily hockey news grind...Long read ahead, even better if you are a fan of the game

On Cory for tomorrow night, it's also a milestone for him, 100th game/start.

The way Gillis moved Schneider and how Luongo found out were probably not the best ways to do things. Bringing both to camp may have been ever more toxic. But it makes you think. Looking at what what happened with the Flyers firing their coach and not really having a solid goalie and the fact that the Oilers have no confidence in Duby, had Gillis stuck to his guns, could he have leveraged a strong deal now for one of Schneider or Luongo now?

Teams felt they had the leverage and cited Luongo's contract as a bad one. Now teams feel the pressure of the season, and not making the playoffs could be a reality if a month from now they are seeing the same results. You have to think a team would overpay for a number one goalie.

Just realized, they likely wouldn't have had the cap space to bring both in, among other issues...

Not basing this off last night, but it's time the Sedins are split up. Go back to 09/10 when Daniel was injured and Henrik went on a tear.

That's what MG was banking on last season, except the only goalie he was willing to move was Lu. The shortened season worked against him severely with so many teams still feeling they were in contention and not willing to move their own pieces, combined with the compliance buyouts and the new cap structure. I still feel MG did the right thing to leverage as much out of Lu as possible, the guy was at one point the cornerstone which we built the franchise around.

My issue with how that was dealt with was surround Schneider. It's clear MG was forced into having to move him to get something of value back. Up til the draft, I believe Schneider was considered an untouchable. But he should have opened up the option of moving Schneider earlier to maximize return potential, and also so other teams knew that we didn't HAVE to trade Lu. Yeah it would have looked like a dick move after pretty much promising Schneider the starter's job and giving him a fair bridge contract, but such is the business and at the end of the day he ended up getting traded anyways.

I think when they play together they worry about what the other is going to do next or even look for the pass instead of a shot which we see over and over. It’s like when they play separate they know the other isn’t there so the focus more on the puck rather than making the beauty pass? All I know is I’m really surprised AV didn’t do that all the much and it was so nice to see Torts splitting them up from the get go which turned into two quick goals and the Canucks coming back and winning the game.

Was Daniel playing with Kesler last night?

Maybe he's the top 6 playmaker Kesler's needed all along?
