Flyers Going Nowhere Fast

Posted in Uncategorized on December 1, 2009 by flyersfan44

I’m not excited at all about the Flyers right now. The inconsistency is troubling, as is the lack of effort for 60 minutes. With the roster they have, they should not be ninth in the conference and three games above .500. I know they have had injuries, but good teams do not use injuries as an excuse. The Penguins have had major injuries but kept winning.

It’s looking more and more that the problem with this team is coaching. When you can’t get a complete effort out of the team, when you have the defensive lapses, when you have bipolar inconsistency, especially with a talented roster, then you have to look to the coach. I like John Stevens and think he is a good coach – but not for this team at this time. They’re too comfortable with him. If this doesn’t turn around by mid-season, I think he will be gone. They’re not spending all this money on Pronger for a record that’s barely over .500 and ninth in the conference.

Here’s something else to excite you about this season: Here are some teams that currently have as many or more points than the Flyers:

NY Islanders
Tampa Bay
Los Angeles
