...for i am pretty much 'hockey'd' out.
pretty happy with the agressiveness of the flyers this year. but it is hard to get too excited for what seems like a case of deja vu. this is not the first time the flyers have gone out and signed half of the free agency market. but hey, i cannot complain. for ten years they have been an extremely successful franchise and i have been thrown into the wake of some tremendous hockey over the this time. its never not interesting.
but now. having solidified a poor defense. i can sleep well this summer and awaken a couple of weeks into preseason to watch my flyers kick up some dust from the start of the season.
if this team does not break out of the gate like maniacs and play like thye have something to prove, then i am going to be very embarassed...more so than any toronto fan : )
from an early perspective, these are the few players who need to prove something this year:
carter - consistency needs to improve
richards - get a little stronger. my grandmother could save one of your shots
biron - keep the boys in the game night in and night out. keep confidence
briere - not a product of the buffalo system.
who wants to add to this?
