Re: Talbot traded

Loved the heck out of Max when he was a Pen but the Flyers over paid for him IMHO.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Talbot traded

I'm happy for him. Worst to first...not a bad turn of events.

Re: Talbot traded

It appears that the Flyers are poised to return to their goonish ways, not that they ever really left...

Talbot could have his fair share of gritty play, but Downie is an outright goon...

Yeah Downie's a real "goon". Have you ever seen a goon with 145 pts in 285 carreer NHL games? That's 1.96 points per game average, Wouldn't you say that's pretty good for a "goon" there trask ?

Honesty is my only excuse.

Re: Talbot traded

Yeah lb, he's got more offensive prowess than Crosby OR the "best player in the world" Claude Giroux...

BTW, he has 696 penalty minutes in 285 games...

And these gems...

I really love the goonery by all the Flyers on the McAmmond hit. Downie charges McAmmond and gives him a flying elbow to the head, knocking him out cold. The Sens then proceed to jump Downie and here come the rest of the goons, one of them recklessly crashing in and having his skate come extremely close to ripping open MacAmmond's face as he lays on the ice... I especially like Bolerice cheapshotting MacGrattan while he is already engaged, wailing away on him while he is already tied up, then jumping on him from behind.

Love that classy move...

Re: Talbot traded

Well he's now the Flyers top scorer so far this year, LOL. I don't have time to watch your library of videos but I can take a guess they are a lot of Downie's early years in the league. Esp. if they are from when he was a Flyer. I know you don't Trask, but some people do change as they mature. I believe you may have the same mentality of a lot of oldtime Pa. hunters before AR... once a spike , ALWAYS a spike or in your mind... once a goon , always a goon.

Honesty is my only excuse.

Yeah no kidding! Do you have all these Flyers videos saved on your computer or what? Who has time to search for all this garbage? I know I don't, I'm headed to bed, 4 am. comes mighty early for us folks that work 55-60 hr weeks but I'm sure you'll be up all night studying the Flyers past & present. I think your a Flyers fan that hasn't come out of the closet yet!

Honesty is my only excuse.
