The Flyers Continued With The Most Inept Start in Team History

You know things are getting bad when Flyers press notes start out with:

Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the 34 goals scored by the Flyers through 20 games is a franchise record for the fewest at that point of a season.  The previous low was 39 goals scored through the first 20 games of the 1968-69 season.

The Flyers had almost as many shots blocked (29) as Ottawa had on goal (31).  In addition to their 36 shots, the Flyers had 45 more not reach the net – the 29 that were blocked, and 16 that missed.

Not even a seasoned PR pro can spin this disaster into something positive.

Oh and those blocked shots? LOOK AT ALL THESE B’S:

You almost have to try to get that many shots blocked from in close. This team may be the most skill-less since the early 90s Flyers. Where’s Andrei Lomakin when you need him?

  1. My Flyer fans don’t need the Flyers to win. Hell for 41 years I have been bull$hitting them with the Broad Street Bullies, Bernie, Clarkie and of course the Watson brothers.

    They are my cult followers and boy do I fleece them.

    1. Ed, I admire you. My mental cretins found out I was a fraud and it was cyanide in the kool aid.

  2. Together in radio wars pic: Mike Miss, Josh Innis, Pete the Crab…and the winner is Pete for stealing from his workers.

  3. The Flyers are on the right track. I took a lot of positives out of the last 3 games. Its only a matter of time before Giroux, Simmonds, Voracek, Schenn, Reid, Couturier, Raffl, and Gagner break out of there slumps. If they could just score one goal, all the pressure is off, full steam ahead. Dave Hakstol has them headed in the right direction.

  4. O.K. you detractors, cut thr crap or I will bring my son, Jay back. Remember the disaster he was.

  5. Spent more time reading these articles while on the train than actually watching the flyers the last two weeks. I don’t have time for this team and their brutal play.

  6. Hi everybody I'm an openly gay man named tommy. I'm thinking of changing the spelling of my name to Tommie. Does that seem cool? says:

    Thanks

  7. GAAAAH FIRE ALL THE COACHES, TRADE THE YOUNG TALENT AND SCHEDULE A REGGIE LEACH NIGHT GGGAAHHH
