Questions to Answer

  1. Pension Plan Puppets describes tonight's Leafs lineup as a "Brian Burke wet dream," meaning it's a tough freakin' lineup. Barely any NHL vets. Fight night in Philly?
  2. Bryzgalov. In goal. For the Flyers. ¿Que pasa?
  3. Take a closer look at the defense tonight (that's just a personal note for myself). Who stands out, who looks like crap?
  4. Tomas Hyka, once cut from camp and now apparently not cut from camp, is playing. What's he do?
  5. Can Matt Read build on last night?
  6. What's the response to Max Talbot on his first night in front of the Flyers crowd?

Go Flyers.
