Flyers Season Ends With A Wimper!



Flyers = Done!

Let’s contrast the Flyers against . . . .say. . . .the Flyers. A few years ago the Flyers lost to the Ottawa Senators in Round 2 of the playoffs. My Father was livid. “I’m not getting tickets anymore!” and all that. Not me. Once the disappointment left me. I realized that the 7 game series against Toronto (with two Overtimes) was the best playoff series that I have every seen and who ever won would not have anything left to continue. The Flyers lost and I was proud of my team.

Flash forward to 2006. What a disgrace!! Er”ick” DesjOLDans should hang em up. He can’t compete in the “new NHL”. Not only did he play poorly all series, he cost them the game last night. Practically scoring the first goal against the Flyers himself. That play ended the game. Fortunately, I was able to watch HOUSE, instead of taping it. . ..with a BONUS episode tonight.

Between Rathje and Desjardins stinking up the ice, Therien and Johnsson likely to retire, the Flyers better start shopping for Defense before the start of next season.

On a bright note, RJ Umberger was a surprisingly good addition to the team this year, as was Freddy Meyer IV.

Despite their early exit this year, the Flyers lose has not eliminated me from a shot at the World Famous Fotiu Playoff Pool (AKA Deathlok’s Playoff Pool). Go Ducks! Go Sharks!

Fan Reaction!!

I had similar thoughts about the defense...especially DesJardins (hope I spelled it right). Imagine how awful it would have been if they didn't get rid of Recchi, LeClair, et al...miss them, but...

Well...hockey starts again in four months....:) someting to look forward to-I always start a hockey countdown as soon as the Flyers are out of it....I need a life.

Sorry to hear about the Flyers. The Cornell goalie McKee just signed with the Ducks. Not that it means anything for this year's playoffs, but he had a string of 10 shutouts this season. QUACK!!!!!

a shot?! you got nothin' pal! I'm in first n lovin every minute of it! woo-hoo! Of course, if the playoff pool follows the way the FHL season ended, I'll drop off into a non-money winning spot just at the end

rt - You got that right! Of course, Recchi is still playing and producing for the Canes. With Recchi and Brind'Amour down there, shouldn't they have made an effort to get Petey Zezel to round off the line.

Token - What's his name. The Ducks are fat with goaltending now. It will be interesting to see who them move.

Vinnie - Just don't touch the money. If the FHL has taught us anything, it is that.

Forget Pete Zezel...how about Scott Mellanby! HA HA I do miss Tim Kerr and Mark Howe (injured way too much though). Clarke said something interesting yesterday...the team has no personality...doesn't know what it is.

I thought that Clarke had no personality.
