Flyers Send McGinn Away

The Flyers have sent their leading scorer to the minors.

The Flyers were clearly fed up with McGinn's obsession with scoring goals during games. That type of behavior will not be tolerated in this organization.

Hopefully Tye McGinn will learn his lesson by spending some time in the minors. McGinn will be taught how to make turnovers, miss the net with shots, shoot pucks softly into the center of the goaltender's body, and to lose puck battles along the wall. Maybe then he will be ready to skate with the big club.

Clearly the Flyers veterans were not getting through to the young forward. Some time in Adirondack is just the sort of thing a "scorer" like McGinn needs to reform his game.

In related news, suddenly offensive defenseman Braedon Coburn is becoming an outcast in the Flyers locker room. Coburn is tied now for the lead in goals (2) after the club sent former scoring leader McGinn to the minors. A normally steady Flyer with extremely rare scoring accuracy, Coburn is getting complacent and beginning to score. Due to his contract, the Flyers can't send him to the minors at this time to work on his game. He will have to work hard at practice to cut down on his recent troublesome goal scoring. The Flyers hope the demotion of "scorer" McGinn will get Coburn to step up his lack of production. The Flyers are still extremely happy with Coburn's ability to turn the puck over and have high hopes for him to get back on track this season.

In six of the Flyers first nine games this season they have scored only one goal. The other games have produced only two goals a piece. The Flyers' two wins this year have come in games in which they scored two goals.

The Flyers next chance to not score is Saturday against the Islanders at 7pm.
