They just keep losing

That JVR goal was nice, though.

Hey, now that was another professional hockey game. The Sean Couturier goal was way too late and didn’t matter, but James van Riemsdyk put together a nice individual effort for the Flyers’ other goal. Carter Hart played fine, but was hung out to dry on two of the three goals scored against him (if we’re being nice to the team in front of him). Here’s what I talked about following the loss:

  • Why the expectations we had for this team make this season so painful.
  • Trade value for Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek.
  • If all this losing has hurt Carter Hart’s confidence.
  • Claude Giroux’s leadership (the people were talking about it, for some reason).
  • If the team should trade Radko Gudas.
