The state of Flyers hockey is more of a riddle than poetry. Here are some riddles for you… I wear a number 5 and love to turn the puck over? Or, I am a right handed defenseman who skates in mud, who am I? Try this, I was paid $30 million over six years and cannot get the puck out of my zone, and no other teams even wanted my services, who am I?
Next, we would be a number 7 defenseman on any other team, who are we? Get my point! The Flyers entire defensive core is a disgrace! If I see another moment when Braydon Coburn is behind the net with no pressure and the other team is on a line change, and then watch him ice the puck, I will throw the remote through the TV! How about when DelZotto or MacDonald reverse the puck for no reason, and then create a self-imposed fore-check!
Then you have Nicholas Grossman…love his effort, but talk about skating in cement! Now Nick, can I call you Nick? Please use your size and bury someone. Also, clear the crease with anger and take a head off or two. If I bring up Luke Schenn, this author won’t have enough time to include my “why did you trade JVR for this piece cr@p rant!” Next article, the forwards…uggh! Those are my thoughts, how about you?
