I mean you don't have to tell me that story twice... look at the team I'm a fan of. Practically the same thing.

That being said, the Leafs and Panthers are currently the outside wildcard teams.

I do understand your mindset though. Maybe it's time to lose hope on that team long term, but no sense in giving up on them for the season. It was kinda like when the Panthers won their division. They got off to a hot start, didn't really deserve to be in the playoffs. Nearly beat the eastern conference champion Devils in. 7 games 2 OT. Anything can happen!

I think it is your team and mine that are kindred spirits.

yeah, I think if you combined our teams you might actually have a contender, although we both have pretty crappy D...

With the right coach, the Flyers could make a contender with their forwards and just a decent defense. The combination of not recognizing their players' abilities and misuse of them in terms of offensive vs. defensive zone starts makes the offense look more inept than it is. As does this defense, which is, of course, a disaster.

The biggest problems are this:

1. Andrew MacDonald has the worst contract in NHL history and we're only in year one of it.
2. MacDonald.
3. MacDonald.
4. MacDonald.
5. Nicklas Grossmann has a bad contract (next year is his final year, praise God) and the team still thinks he's the model of ideal defense because he's big and slow and blocks shots, despite the fact that he gives up the most scoring chances per 60 of anyone on the team.
6. MacDonald.
7. MacDonald.
8. There are rumors that they want to extend Nick Schultz to keep him from hitting the market because the Flyers are the only team in the NHL that can't understand the basics of how this fucking works and oh god I'm having an aneurysm.
9. MacDonald.
10. MacDonald.

There is nothing more in the world that I want as a hockey fan than for Andrew MacDonald to commit a heinous crime so that the Flyers can void his contract without a cap hit.

MacDonald cost us $5 million in cap space each year from 2014-2020, plus a second and third round pick, plus the sanity of every fan who has ever heard of advanced stats. What did Bolland cost?

$5.5 million every year from 2014-2019 on a budget team, he has to play, and he forced us to trade Drew Shore for nothing. And he makes Vincent Trochek get sent down for nothing. And he's terrible.

MacDonald forced us to keep Shayne Gostisbehere down in the AHL, where he tore his ACL.

Shootout competition might just be the most boring thing to watch in sports since ever. No goalie takes it seriously and no player takes it seriously. I'm basically watching a bunch of rich young men bask in the fact that they're so good they don't have to try. This shit shouldn't be televised it's terrible.

This is why I'm glad the all star break is not every year. Jesus Christ.
