You've accused bryz of being the problem multiple times and have the audacity to claim other people don't understand the game? Yeah........
Bryz is an OK goalie.... he has good games and bad.... he never wins us a game... he is not the only issue... Giroux looks like Richards,,, destined to be traded because he cannot handle the C. This is not hard.... not m fault sports are run by idiots.
Shav suck it up and admit... I was right team stinks!!!!!
PENN STATE FOREVER
This. I've seen the Flyers a few times and Bryz wasn't the reason they lost any of them. Its always easy to blame the goalie, much like blaming QB in an football loss.
Did you really downvote me?
And admit, bryz has been good this year. Flyers have scored more than 2 one time this year. That is the problem and nobody predicted that after game one.
my bad if I did! upvoted you on this one!
Bryz has had good and bad moments... if we scored average... we are .500.... issue is we need a goalie to steal some games he cannot do that
Bryz isn't terrible, he's a solid goalie. This issue is going to be his cap hit, and for how many years it'll last. That's going to be an albatross sooner than later.
Weren't the Pens were 8-0 against the Flyers 2 years ago too... Typically though, the Flyers beat Pittsburgh at home while the Pens beat the Flyers at home. Consol was a bad place for the Pens last year against Philly - that's for sure.
Exactly. Bryz isn't the problem and I have maintained that the entire year. While injuries have hampered the Flyers a bit, Hartnell and we will see with Simmonds, this team wasn't put together that well really. Holmgren did nothing to help a questionable blueline. I'm sorry, but Luke Schenn isn't the answer. He can hit, but he isn't a good defenseman. Philly got taken to the cleaners in that deal as JVR looks like all the sudden a pretty significant player.
The defense has been questionable and your younger talent isn't producing. Giroux, Couturier ... are basically non factors offensively.
It's not like a major trade is going to happen either. Philly's farm system is dried up. Hockeyfutures has it ranked dead last. All the talent is up.
Bryz was one of the best goalies in the league prior to his arrival in Philly. Was it due to the fact of Phoenix's style of play - defense first? Maybe. Despite Mike Smith's slow start, we will see if he benefitted from the same style of play should he move on. Bottom line, Bryz can't win too many games when the team isn't scoring and the defense is questionable.
Pittsburgh has its own problems as well.
i think most teams do. The lack of a real camp and limited practice time with such a tight schedule will make it tougher to adjust. This is where I think the veteran teams with less change will benefit.
Looking forward to Devils - Pens, will be making all sorts of friends in my Devils gear at Primanti's in a couple hours Hoping the defense gets back to par or could be a long day. Need Zubs to snap out of his funk and some production from Josefsen, no more stupid penalties today either. 2 unsportsmenlike penalties in last 2 games in unacceptable.
Must've been a long day for ya, LBU1.
I really like Boychuk over "the big dog" Tangradi, and Bortuzzo over Lovejoy.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
LETS GO PENS
Well, Pittsburgh has now beaten Philly, Jersey, and Rangers.
4-0 vs the Flyers, Rangers and Devils
eh, it is what it is. Devils have been playing sloppy and still sneaking out points. Sloppy play caught up with them today. I don't dislike the Pen, I root for them if they aren't playing NJ and I really like Sid. Devils needed a loss like this to show them they need to get their head out of their ass. I think Volchenkov had the nicest assist of the day....for the Pens, LOL
If they play like this next Sunday when I go to the game, I will be pissed though :-)

Who hasn't beaten the Flyers??
Oh man I just saw that elbow on Simmonds from last night. That's gotta be at least two games for Erksine.
His hearing is today via phone, which means it can't be more than five games.
0-3 versus the dregs of the league though - Toronto, Jets and the Islanders (although they might be turning the corner). Impressive win today. Bortuzzo with his first career goal; Sutter gets on the board and Boychuk didn't look out of place.
The Isles look to be for real from what I've seen of them. A lot of speed on that team, I guess when you draft so high year after year, its bound to pay off sooner or later.
Simmonds out tonight head and neck injuries... YIKES
Simmonds.... TRADE HIS ASS
He got popped pretty good by that elbow. He went stiff immediately, and woke up by hitting his head on the ice. Not a good combination of events.
Pretty disappointing that none of his teammates stepped up to defend him.
There are 29 teams that would love to have Wayne Simmonds. The guy works very hard and is a potential 30 goal scorer if put with the right guys. He is a warrior. This is the type of player I wouldn't mind see coming to Pittsburgh. Holmgren would never do it.
I think that was a jab at Philafan who wanted them to trade everyone, and especially Simmonds the other day. I'd certainly take him on the Devils
I would.... his negatives out weigh the good and lets face it... team needs DEFENSE... losing Carle has hurt so much
