Anyone interested in Gagne?

Forsberg seems in and out of the lineup this year, so I have no idea what his totals are going to look like. He might pick it up though, or he might not. He seems to have been lately but... I hate Philly. I think that was outlined earlier in this thread?

As this is the only hockey thread we have on F13, I'll drop my greviance here:

I generally dislike national telecasts for a number of reasons, but I HATE HATE HATE NBC's coverage.

Yes, Crosby is really good, and the Flyers are having their worst year ever. Yes, we get it. No need to remind us every 45 seconds. Especially with Crosby - I should chart how often Emrick and DouchCo. mention Crosby. I figure it's about every 47 seconds.

It's insulting - National coverage is supposed to be unbiased. Fuck this shit. They could at least be kind enough to take Crosby's dick out of their collective mouth during gameplay.

EDIT: Fuck Ed Olczyk. Right in the fucking ass. (paraphrasing) "The Flyers need to trade Forsberg. By the time they are good again, he won't be in the league anymore." What a stupid asshole. First of all...um, hello Forsberg to Gagne? Second, even if they Flyers trade him to Detroit like the idiot suggested, what could they possibly get that will help them? I'm guessing nothing. Such a trade would make Zero Sense. ZERO. No wonder he got canned in Pittsburgh after coaching the Pens to a stillborn start, even with all the talent they had.

And really, as bad as the Flyers are playing, on paper, the team is not THAT terrible. It's not going to take the decade it took the Pens to rebuild. Depending on what happens in the summer, the Flyers could be a perfectly good team next season.

Network coverage of the NHL in general blows ass. ABC's was decent when they were paired with ESPN and had Melrose and some of the others there. I haven't seen NBC's coverage, but I can expect it will be almost as retarded as the glowing puck.

I just want to reiterate that I really hate Emrick. And who is that little shit that use to do color commentary that use to be a backup goalie in NJ? He's a douche as well.

I miss the ESPN's coverage when I was forced to watch it. VS isn't that bad, but they have at least one really odd play-by-play guy on there.

Seriously, Man-Power Advantage? Who says that? Man advantage, power play, sure. But Man-power Advantage? Come on.

The ESPN coverage had a very collegial atmosphere. The VS coverage feels like a network focused on fishing shows doing hockey coverage.

Yeah, Pronger too. But they have a 1A backup in Bryzgalov, and you honestly woudn't think that they'd go from first class to complete ass (Ah the oh so rare 90's talk show reference) that quickly, that completely.

You know.. I was thinking. If the Flyers snatch the #1 pick this year (which is highly possible), and trade off Forsberg or some other assets and somehow swing a three way to procure another top 5 this year, then tank next year as well...

You guys could have a stable of prospects that included Esposito, Cherapanov, Tavares.. as well as Richards and Carter. Then you just need to swindle Toronto out of Justin Pogge like Boston swindled them out of Tuuka Rask. Hah.

That'd make for some VERY good Eastern Conference finals for the next 10 or 15 years.

I highly doubt someone is going to cough up a top-5 pick for Forsberg. I'd be tentative even if I was offered a top-3 pick for him. And quite honestly, if he's able to play at a high level, I would be sad to see him leave.

Historically, the Flyers have not been great with really young players. They either rush them through development or trade them (RE: half the current lineup).

Tavares (next year's #1) just put up a 7 point game in the OHL.

He's 16.

I think they said the last person to do that was Gretzky.

Start trading shit and planning to tank next season.

As humourous as that may be, what struck me as most strange about this trade is that someone swapped a decent prospect for Sean Avery.

Marc-Andre Cliche played on the Team Canada World Juniors gold medal team this year, as well as in the CHL All-Star game.

I wouldn't trade my favourite pen for Sean Avery.

Now, I won't totally deride his style of play. There ARE players who can be considered "instigators" and "shit disturbers" that are worth while. Usually not, but there are. Their benefit to the team generally comes from a mix of being smart and being an asswipe, which can get other people off of their game or draw penalties.

Mr. Avery is all asswipe, baby. There's no place for him on my team.

I don't know, all it would take is two or three solid games from Pittsburgh for you to catch up, and they do have more games remaining than pretty much anyone else.

I'm glad to see him turn it around this year.  I was ready to put him in the Palffy/Leclair/Recchi club.  And I almost feel like I should take Recchi out of there, too.

I wouldn't.

Although Palffy, LeClair and Recchi are on totally different levels of failure.

Recchi is PLAYING, and he's ABLE to play. He just can't really do anything. But at least he didn't sign a contract and bail, or become totally unable to keep up or contribute. But we have limited options as far as top six wingers go.
