    In my opinion I feel there has been tons of disappointing teams this year.

      it’s easy to feel that way when you live in the east lol. the entire eastern conference minus like 4 or 5 teams is disappointing.

        its weird i look at some of these teams and while i realize they might not have talent like the pens or bruins or some west teams, i feel like they should be better. then again maybe they just aren’t that great of hockey teams. hard to tell.

        i mean be honest…do you think the flyers should be a top team in the league or are they really more on the level or a 4-6 seed in the east, right where they are at?

    Did Halford say “Colado Avalanche”? I agree with their picks of the teams. I don’t agree that they should make a blockbuster trade just because they need to do something.

    No offense but, Edmonton was a surprise?

      I think they were the disappointment, since they were in the playoff hunt until late in the season last year. I don’t think anyone they would bottom out the way the did or that they would receive historically bad goaltending to start the season.

        I actually am genuinely surprised by them. I figure a team that gets a top-ten pick every year, including several #1 overall picks, should at some point begin winning games. And yet, here we are, they’re worse than ever. That’s pretty surprising, to me.

    How about a text version of video for those of us unfortunate enough to be using app?
    Since a fully funtional application is apparently to much to ask for….

      Or any app at all for Windows Phone

    What about the Flyers? They’re gone from almost imploding at start of the season (fired coach, sub .500, no scoring) and have turned it around and are making a major push…
