Approximately 17 so far this evening. That usually means the Flyers let in a weak goal so glad it got to tv timeout.

Can't blame the offense (Edit: short of not covering people when on defense) or Elliott for these losses. Offense keeps putting 3 or 4 goals on the board, and most of the goals against Elliott were out of his control except for the occasional softie (like the first goal by Pitt last night). Defense is flat out making mistakes. Also, Voracek is pissing me off.

They don't make a huge difference. And they don't assume 1/10 the risk that their players do. All they need to do is deal with fuck-wits, and at their salary the compensation is more than adequate.

I was pretty mindblown when he had a breakaway yesterday and didn't even get a shot off, I almost want Hak to take him off that top line. I understand that line has been great and their point totals are fantastic, but when you actually watch them it really seems like G does the dirty work along the board and Couturier consistently finds the space on the ice to score.

I almost want to see something like this in the top 6. Bottom 6 can keep being shuffled although Martel looks like he could be a middle 6 kind of guy so I hope he keeps playing. At times and yes I know it is only 3 games in Martel reminds me of Brad Marchand because he just looks so fucking annoying to play against.

G-Couturier-Konecny(He's going to blow up eventually he has so many half chances and throwing him with Couturier and G could be what he needs)

On Hak, I don't think you fire during the year and I would probably lean against firing him after the season. He still has some huge deadweight, but all of the young players seem to be progressing under him and IMO that is huge. Now he does make some stupid decisions setting the lineups with that being said I think he gets judged on next season when the kids have experience and the team should make the jump.

This.

I still have faith that he's good with the kids, and he's stuck between two worlds.

I'm curious how much of those stupid decisions are Hextall, if any. I mean from the GM perspective, Lehtera being a healthy scratch every night means you traded Schenn for two draft picks. This could look bad, and you also drastically drop his trade value in the event someone does come a-callin'. So you gotta play him every now and then.

I get the "veteran" presence but Manning still being on this team annoys me. I'm ready to run with Morin, even if it means we lose a few games while he gets broken in. And there are other decent enough AHL defenders who can be fill-ins if someone gets hurt.

Pretty much, with the exception of Coots, G, TK, Hagg, Ghost and Provorov the rest of the team just looks defeated. Not saying all those guys are playing great, but at least they have their legs moving and are attempting to make something happen. I will say one thing Provorov at least continues to look like an incredible Dman

Teams don't lose 8+ games in a row multiple times without coaching problems. But I do agree that a mid season coaching switch serves no purpose for this team right now. I think Hak has some redeeming development qualities but I don't think he was ready to be a HC at this level. Voracek's discipline is awful right now, he needs to get his head out of his ass.

I get that you need to play D and protect leads, but this whole playing it safe and play the defensive shell game in the 3rd period with leads does not work. Also if the younger players and kids got you in position to win a hockey game going into the 3rd period you play the guys that got you there. don't lean on your shitty vets and keep the kinds on the bench. they wont learn a damn thing.
Playing Manning, AMAC, Weise, Lehtera ect trying to protect a lead is asinine.
Fix the goddamn PK. Or get rid of Lappy. or both.
