In the second period, Hartnell was talking about the Flyers playing shinny hockey, and twitter blew up with people thinking he said zesty hockey.  At the beginning of the post-game show, he and Taryn Hatcher were sheepishly explaining what he really said.

Then Voracek blew up the FCC with that interview.

this is a tepid version of the reaction of stepford flyer fans, who are the most obtuse and slobberingly homeristic of any fan base in perhaps the world

none of them knew or cared who mike sielski was 2 seconds ago but now hes evil and must be murdered because he wrote a column 2 years ago jake is pissy about

^^Tonight exemplified the "they aren't good' point^^

First game I've been able to watch in its entirety since opening game.  Beautiful start to the third period, up 3-1 with less than eight minutes to play, B's tie it up with 14 seconds left!!  31 seconds into OT and BOOM!  Three power play goals allowed in last 8 minutes including OT.  Unreal.

Laughton with the hattrick.  Defense still a concern, but they turned it on in the 3rd.

Couturier was missed by this team.  Maybe the most important foward at this point.

heads up next year most regular season national games are going to be exclusive to hulu/espn+. so like a rando rangers/flyers game wont be on comcast or the package, it will be on espn+ and hulu.

welcome to the 2020s
Title: Re: 2021 Flyers thread
Post by: ice grillin you on March 11, 2021, 07:35:30 AM
this is great cause espn+ is so much cheaper than having to buy the package and I already get it anyway so if I’m understanding this correctly I’m now going to be basically getting the package for free?
Title: Re: 2021 Flyers thread
Post by: MDS on March 11, 2021, 08:30:18 PM
yes

i believe if you get espn+ the nhl package is just a part of that. they have to have like 15 subscribers if theyre just becoming simply one more thing on espn+

this will be a bigger problem for some normal idiot from philly who just wants to watch the flyers game and now wont be able to. and shtein bars likely are going to struggle here too. it wont be any big games and only be a few games total but still
Title: Re: 2021 Flyers thread
Post by: ice grillin you on March 12, 2021, 09:04:47 AM
Theres like 1200 games on espn+

I think it’s every game of the season besides the 25 they are going to show on abc/espn and the handful of reg season games whoever gets the b package will show

It’s A LOT of games...like 99% of the regular season will be streaming...I’m assuming some playoffs will also be on espn+?

in a way, yes. espn will be producing a few games a week that will be exclusive to espn+/hulu. meaning if its a flyers game and you live in philly, you have to watch it this way. they will also have the nhl package on there, as a part of the service. its two separate elements to the deal but ultimately if you have espn+ 95% of all nhl games will be there.

Quote
It’s A LOT of games...like 99% of the regular season will be streaming...I’m assuming some playoffs will also be on espn+?

maybe a lower tier first round game will co-exist, at most. the playoffs are being split with whoever buys the other package, so there should be enough space on regular tv to house all the games.

but there might be one day with an overflow or limited space, so nationally something zesty like lightning/islanders is on espn+ nationally but still on local stations in the home markets for the 33 people who watch the nhl there.

I was sharing it just for the replay.  I agree, not much insane about it... other than Marchand's reaction after Patrick's throwdown during the play.  He was frothing at the mouth a bit.

(Admittedly, that looked like a penalty to me as well.)

The other piece of news is the team had to send in its protection list for the Seattle draft today.

NHL releasing the names tomorrow but pre-trade Carchidi posted

Expansion draft gives them a chance to unload some of the biggest contracts onto Seattle so maybe that was part of the calculus with deciding they could spend on Ellis.

Seattle did not take the big contract bait. They took Carsen Twarynski who I have to admit I am not sure I have ever seen playing.

Scratch that

Ghost traded with a 2nd and a 7th TI clear cap space. What a disaster of an organization

Kind of a foregone conclusion when Seattle passed on the JVR, Voracek, and Ghost contracts.

Exactly. This is just the cost of offloading a zesty contract. Happens in the NBA all the time. Once the Kraken didn't bite on their big contracts something like this was 100% a foregone conclusion.

Holy Moses that’s bad.  Nothing like being traded for a player to be named never.

I mean, he's an improvement to their second defensive pairing but seems like a lot to shell out and they have basically re-added all of the cap savings they got by unloading Ghost. Must be something else in the works... right?

I’m already questioning my initial thought that this dude would improve their second pairing. Seems like high-minute guy who legit sucks. Let’s go Flyers.
Title: Re: 2021 Flyers thread
Post by: Rome on July 23, 2021, 06:15:44 PM
He’s better than what they had but when Ghost and everything else is figured in this is a ridiculous move. 

Legit not surprised.

Meh.

They trimmed salary and got a useful but kinda uninspiring player in return. I mean I guess it’s fine. But mostly, meh.

Meh.

That’s the Flyers organization in a nutshell

Voracek is a worthless pos.  Getting rid of him is a great move no matter what they get in return.

This obviously overstating the case but getting a useful player for him is fine. Meh, but fine.

I could never stand him. They get a better player in Atkinson and $2.5M in cap relief this year.

No brainer.

2020 Hart made a reappearance tonight.  He needs to be a lot better for the Flyers to even have a chance.

But as of now, it looks like more Philly sports.

They made a bunch of off-season moves look exactly like they did the end of last season

Not cup worthy yet but this team is infinitely better than the slop they threw out there last season. Like to see what they can do with Ellis on d.
