Assuming Nurse, Ristolainen and Zadorov are gone by the time the Flyers pick, what do you think of them picking Heatherington?

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

I'm honestly not sure on Hetherington. If Risto isn't there I'd rather see them move down and pick up Mueller, Zadorov and/or Hagg with someone else's picks. What happened with Zadorov that he plummeted out of the top 10 skaters? Like he was talked about being in the same league with Nurse or Risto and now he's not ranked in either top 10.

There's talk on Monahan, but if there's anything the Flyers don't need at this point it's another defensively responsible 2 way centerman. He'll be buried under Giroux, Schenn, Coots, Laughton and maybe even Talbot.

There's also Pulock who fell out of the NA top 10.

No one else was talking so we jumped to hockey, it's the most wonderful time of the year for boneheaded GM decisions.

When Whatis and I know that the other is on we tend to work some hockey talk in here, because we're the only two who talk about it.

There's also Pulock who fell out of the NA top 10.


I just figured Heatherington would fit what was being looked for: big, strong, shut down d-man who clear the creas eand can skate. I don't know much about Pulock

Ah right. I didn't see the "ON AIR" sign turn red.
I'll leave the "Hockey Time with Tuor and Whatis" set.
Carry on.

Haha, you can feel free to bring something up to talk about, we just tend to shift to hockey talk if no one's actively discussing anything

Scouting says Pulock is a 2 way dman with a real heavy shot, he's 6-1 210 and right shooting. He's just been bit by the injury bug which is a risk. I'm still trying to figure out why Zadorov fell from like the top 5 to 22. I'd also say the Flyers more so need a solid 2 way dman, the problem is defensemen are rarely ready to be top pair in their rookie season.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

heatherington did jump offensively this season, some people are seeing him as two way. He's 6' 4" or 3". Anyhow, ya, it's weird that he fell that far, I don't remember hearing or reading anything negative

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

If they're lucky Zadorov falls to the 2nd round and grab him there. It's still a long shot on defensemen, because they do develop later, I also think the Flyers are going to look a little more at college kids for UFA rookies.

Went to the beach today. Froze my ass, body, and dick off but was pretty cool.
Yup, this is summer fun.

At least it isn't thunderstorms for 3 weeks.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

That'd be awesome.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

I <3 Thunderstorms.
It's pretty rare here but it looks awesome when you're outside watching the lightning strikes it from a distance. And the thunder booms? Gives me chills...

Yeah it gets annoying after a week of once a day at like 5 in the afternoon. And then you find out it's another 2 weeks of the same shit.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Fri Jun 28, 2013 10:25 pm

I have the same weather.
It's worse if you have to work in the stuff.

Damn, that's gotta suck big time

It's annoying after a week or so.

So the Flyers are after Halak, those pads would look great in Orange and Black.

Oh really? Hmmm…

TCM is having a film noir marathon, I'm watching "The Big Sleep" and having a beer.

But again Homer's got a bunch of balls in the air. I'm also trying to figure out why anyone in the front office is willing to trade Coburn, he's the most reliably healthy defensemen and easily the best skater. Mez is injury plagued anymore and not as confident and Grossmann is a stay at home beast but he's got no offensive upside.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Sat Jun 29, 2013 12:23 am

Coburn has an offensive upside?

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Sat Jun 29, 2013 12:31 am

He hasn't used it since he was partnered with Timonen and it fell into disrepair. And it's still better than what Grossmann, Gervais or Luke have to offer as far as a shot, skating or occasional quarterbacking. The big problem was he got used as a number one defenseman without having another top pairing guy with him, usually it was Grossmann or Gervais. He'll hopefully be better off this year with Timonen or Streit as his partner. Like trading Coburn for Bobby Ryan makes no sense, you're dealing from a position of shallowness to one of depth. Hell I'd love to see some insane package for Halak and Petro but I doubt that will happen. The Flyers have 9 mil in cap when Pronger goes on LTIR.

I hate you.

It was over 100 degrees over here and I had to work in the god damn sun for around 4 hours... YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WATER I WENT THROUGH AND SWEAT OUT?! I just... no. Just no. And on top of that everyone was getting sick, headaches, and plenty of customers were getting pretty aggressive and rude, even in the parking lot with each other. Not "a lot" a lot with customers being that way, but a good handful more than regular to be very noticeable. This sort of thing's been going on for like a week. It's only just broke 100 today, but tomorrow it's expected to be the same and thank god I will not be going through that all again. I switched with someone to my pleasure who I'd been planning on switching with anyways to get something done tomorrow. Also, it's still in the 70s right now and it's almost midnight...

I. HATE. SUMMER.
