What a joke. Should have fired the guy at the end of last year and give your team a full training camp with a new coach. Or give the guy more than 3 games. The flyers are constantly surprising me with their lack of class when it comes to business decisions. Don't get me wrong there are times to let go of a coach, hiring and firing happen all the time, but now this guy has no chance to be hired for the majority of this year and your team has to keep using his system until (if) they put together a new system with the assistant coach who took over. Another head scratching decision by the flyers.
This team shouldn't be as offensively inept as last year. Expect them to be 1-5 in the East. The lack of size won't be what catches up with us it'll be the olympic break and whether or not our players have legs when they come back from overseas. A good stat will be what teams have the most players go to the Olympics and how those teams fare after the break.
So let's be honest... Helm is not going to be ready to start the season now that he pulled his groin. So.. here's my new lines:
I really don't like emmerton, I don't think he brings any pluses to this team (no negatives also he's just kinda there) so I will create any situation where he gets bumped off this team instead of eaves or tootoo. So if I were the coach I would try this for a few games
Nyquist Z Alfie
Franzen Pav Abby
Tatar, Weiss, Bert
Miller, Andy, Tootoo
Kron, Big Rig
Kindl, Danny Deke
Put Helm on LTIR until he is absolutely game ready. Waive Emmerton. And then wait until helm's absolutely ready to solve the one to many forwards problem.
