The Biggest concern for me was the number of blown leads this preseason. The concern comes from the fact that this has been a chronic problem under the John Stevens regime. We've seen this team jump out to leads in the past, and not beable to sustain them in bigger and more crucial situations, like the post-season.

Another concern is goals given up in under 2-minutes of a period. This has been a chronic problem of a John Stevens' team, it's like they lose focus as the period comes to a close.

The young guys like JVR, Ryan Parent, & Giroux have been pretty impressive offensively, but they need to get better at their defense. JVR recorded 3 goals and 1 assist, but also was on the ice when the opponents scored 6 of the Flyers 21 Goals Against. Ryan Parent's defense is even scarier, the Flyers only scored 3 times with him on the ice while the opponents scored 6-times.

I hope veterans like Blair Betts, his defense I hope is better than what he showed this preseason.

Braydon Coburn was a little shakey too, but maybe because he was partnered up with stiffs like Randy Jones & Logan Stephenson.

As for the Goalies, Ray Emery has been sharp, but I still think he's got to prove himself and will see how consistant he can be over an 82 game season.

For now Johan Backlund's the back-up, I wonder what Roman Chechmanek is doing these days?
