Thread: GDT 10/6 Opening Day Hockey! Flyers vs. Boston; 7pm

I need to start thinking about hockey so why not get the GDT going! I am so excited to see what this new team can bring to the table this season. If Jagr can stay healthy and paired with Girioux I think we are in for one hell of a ride with those two. Oh yea, and there’s that Bryz guy in net.  Kinda sucks to have to start off the season up in Boston but let it serve as a reminder of what hard work and teamwork can accomplish. Are you ready for some hockey?!

Thread: Sean Couturier

If the kid keeps this up there is no way we send him to Juniors.

Thread: WOW Schenn Contract Situation

Boy were we all off. Homer is smarter then we think. Leave it to our beat writers not to figure this out…..FUCKING MAJOR FAIL.  capgeek CapGeek #NHL #Flyers Brayden Schenn is only eligible for $1.405m in B bonuses if he spends every day on the Flyers’ roster and appears in 82 games. That means Brayden Schenn’s cap hit should drop from $3.11m to $1.705m after just one day in the minors. #NHL #Flyers. Note, that clause is only believed to apply to Schenn’s contract in 2011-12, not the other two seasons.

Thread: LOL @ the Leafs

Tim Connolly already on IR with an Upper Body Injury he got from falling during practice. Lol at signing a guy with a 4.75M cap hit who averages less than 60 games a season…
