No. He played in our win just fine. Let in a modest two goals. This was a team thing. He was bad and so was the team.

Ed Snider continues to amaze me with his forward-thinking attitude, patience, and rational decision making.

Craig Berube will take the Flyers into the future, I'm sure of it.

I've said this before, but it always amazes me how certain sports franchises are perpetually unable to find that one important piece for their team. Like a football team that struggles to find a quarterback year in and year out (Arizona, Jacksonville) no matter what they do.

The biggest issue with the Flyers, in my view, is not coaching, but management that has failed to find a franchise goaltender. Now, granted, these players don't grow on trees, but how many years have we been talking about the Flyers' lack of a true franchise goalie? Even sad-sack teams like the Maple Leafs now have two legitimate number 1 goalies.

Everything, absolutely everything, about building a solid hockey team starts from the net out, in my opinion.

I agree with BoMac. There are so many variables involved in a strong offense that it's far simpler to build from the goalie out and pick up offensive pieces along the way. Despite absolutely murdering Tampa for two and a half periods, we lost Saturday because they made saves in the final 10 minutes that we couldn't. You can put in your absolute best effort and still fall short if your goaltending is shaky.

Sacking Laviolette after three losses is laughable. It's just going to fuck up the locker room.

The Flyers had Sergei Bobrovsky but Ed Snider didn't like that he didn't win the Stanley Cup in his rookie year so...

God, I hate sports.

The Detroit Red Wings are a perfect example of a team not built from the net out though.

Sure, there are always outliers, but generally speaking, it makes good sense to build a strong foundation from the net out.

I'm going to the first game of the Craig Berube era, as it turns out. My first live NHL game in nearly a decade.

Enjoy it. Philly is one of those places where I'd love to see a hockey game.

Most random fucking thing at the game: I ended up down near the ice and this older fella and younger girl walk up, and I said to my friend, "Ha, that looks like Danny Trejo." And it turns out it was Danny Trejo, and for some reason the producers of his new movie thought promoting it at a Flyers game was an excellent idea. I should have yelled something about Breaking Bad, but I was just laughing at how absurd it was.

Anyway, nice to see the first win.

You were at the game? I heard it got nasty.


Something to do with Huberdeau being sat on my Simmonds, Kopecky being his usual pest self...

How'd Markstrom look?
