    This isn’t good news for Philly. Just when they get things rolling again, Desjardins goes down for 8 weeks, Sidenberg for 12, then this happens. I think this will force Clarke to deal Handzus or Primeau and something else to get that goaltender he desperatly needs. Kolzig? Burke? Those have to be the front runners, although, don’t be shocked if Comrie still ends up in Anaheim, and a struggling, reigning Conn Smythe winner goes back the other way. I won’t mention who.

    Will Flyers JUST get a goalie!!!! Flyers need a top goalie like the Eagles need a Top Receiver! They could have used Williams to help get a goalie. This is frustrating!

    Don’t worry about your Eagles, T.O is on the way.

    Ouch, veritgo is not fun to deal with. Wish Hacks a quick recovery.

    Well, Esche will face the big test now. Can he carry the load?

    I hope not, because i want to see a trade happen! I want to see the friggin Flyers get a goalie they will depend on, and a veyr good goalie that knows what to do in the playoffs.

    ESHE WILL PERFORM AND LEAD THE FLYERS!!!!! No one is giving him a chance, wait & see, you heard it here first!!!

    Don’t know if you said it first…I’ve been saying it since they got him and Handzus… 😛

    I don’t think Hackett having vertigo will actually affect the Flyers. Just look at his record over his past 10 starts…he’s done nothing. Now is the time that Esche will finally be able to prove that he can be a #1 goalie in the league. If he doesn’t, then the Flyers get a guy. But I really think Hackett was out of the picture anyways.

    As for trading Primeau, if Clarke did that he would be trading away all chances of winning the Cup. Granted he might not be putting up the numbers like he did back in the day, but the Flyers were doing horrible without him. When he came back into the lineup they won two games against the Leafs (granted an injury depleted Leafs…but they were still #1 in the Eastern Conference). If you think Philly is in chaos now…just imagine what it would be like if he was gone…

    But they’re losing everybody else…this was their last year at a championship…

    There are too many easy jokes here, so I will pass, except for noting that I always thought JR was the dizziest Flyer……

  11. TC_4 says:

    Your right. I don’t think they should trade Keith, but it’s safe to say it won’t be Roenick, and Keith was the one name before this season. He’s a very valuable player, espically come playoff time.

    D-strate opens his yap…….how very droll

  13. defenestrate says:

    Thank you baby – I love you too.

  14. CechmanekForVezina says:

    Maybe he’s being treated for vertigo ’cause he’s not used to being so high in the standings. ZING!

    If the Flyers are to win a cup it will be in spite of their goalie. No matter how good a goalie the Flyers get… He will not be good on the Flyers. Call it fate, destiny, or the way it is. For like the last 10 years all ya gotta know about the flyers… Great Team just a goalie away from the cup. Has anything changed? Do you ever see Clarke getting a good goalie? I would still rather have Hanzuse (?spelling) than Bousher (?), But it’s kind of funny the Flyers are trying to trade the player they got for their goalie for another goalie. On the other hand, I guess all this is kind of typical on this weeks episode of Clarke’s In Charge. The most popular soap opra in Philly.

    OK this doesnt have much to do with this article, HOWEVER, I would like to comment on one recurring theme that I have noticed throughout all posts. I am only asking for one little thing…..If you are writing about a player at least have the common decency to spell their name right.

    It drives me insane that people will offer a plethora (yes jeffe a plethora) of opinions regarding at player and then call him Kaviboulion or Datsook or some other inane incorrect spelling.

    I feel better now. I think I will write and article about Neeekoliii Kavibaboonyon getting traded for Seeeymoan Gahnyeah

    All of our international members are excluded from my tirade. I compliment you all. This is in no way an indictment of all you “fuzzy little foreigners.” (caddyshack quote)

    big boy I am a married man……….

    Was restaurant quality humor. Well done.

  19. defenestrate says:

    me too…and how did you know I was big? Has that damned Pam Anderson tape come back to haunt me again?

  20. defenestrate says:

    What about if I do it intentionally because I hate them?

    D-e-f-e-n-e-s-t-r-a-t-e (who has gone through 43 years of having his “real” name mispronounced as well.)

    i agree with mateo, i mean matteo

  22. matteo says:

    I thought it was a Gary Anderson tape…..???

  23. matteo says:

    D-e-f-e-n-e-s-t-u-r-b-a-t-e

    If you do it intentionally then it is between you and God….and your Calvin Klein’s

  24. defenestrate says:

    I saw yours, mon frere – it was a Louie Anderson tape.

    My condolences.

    Stay tuned for my new tape, which is myself, Pam Anderson, and Loni Anderson.

    You’re weirding out on me again. Did you mix up your Rogaine and your Viagra? Is your hair standing on end?

  26. the_expert_44 says:

    great game vs montreal today…

  27. hoser24 says:

    Did you watch that game or just look at the stats? You think he had any chance on those first two goals?

    And Gagne pulled out one of his patented “score when the game is over” goals.

    How about:

    Jeff Hackett starring in Ken Hitchcock’s “Vertigo”?
