So earlier this year Jake Voracek cussed out a reporter live on Zoom, and now apparently called out an HF Boards poster.

I mean, I don't really mind it when an athlete gives it back to a scribe who's been slagging them in the press. Dipshits like Simmons shouldn't get carte blanche to write/say whatever they want and not get some flack thrown their way on occasion.

But really? Going after a user on HF? And someone put a screenshot of one of the posts in question in that thread and if that's all he was saying, then Jake needs to STFU and play. If the guy was saying unconscionable things and goin' after the guy's family, then yes, call him out. But it was just a critique of his play. I don't see the issue.

And to ask to meet face to face, that's what really makes him sound like a dick on this. If he pulled a QueAngelo and used a burner account to ask what level beer league the guy plays, it's kind of bush league, but at least it's not pussy footing around threatening the guy. And I have to say, from what I remember of HF boards, that was a really well thought out critique of a player. Most of what I remember was like "he sux!" So Jake really ought to chill.

Carter Hart has completely imploded. Maybe Hextall was right after all.

Rangers really have the Flyers' number.

Yes, Hart has been bad but the team in front of him has been utter shit. When you're letting Casey Cizikas head to the low slot area with no resistance whatsoever you just don't care anymore. They are insanely bad defensively despite some really good talent at their disposal at all positions. Methinks Vigneault is a goner at the end of the season, and, well, that's probably for the best.

It's gotten so bad with Carter Hart that they've thrown his ass into the press box.

Speaking of head cases.......869 SV%. AV said Carter needs to work harder. Yikes.

They still managed a 3 goal comeback to beat the Sabres in OT. I thought they were going to lose that one.

Sabres gonna Sabe?

The Ghost is on waivers. What a tumultuous career that guy's had. He was supposed to be the next Tyson Barrie and just kinda cratered after signing that deal.

Was supposed to be the next Colorado Tyson Barrie and ended up becoming the next Toronto Tyson Barrie.

Laughton gets 5 years, 3M AAV. He is perfectly cromulent player.

Farabee hits the 20-goal mark in his rookie season. He's going to be a star, but there's something very much amiss in Philly.

Methinks Vigneault will return next season, but he won't make it to 2022.

I don't get this team's makeup. They have depth and talent to spare, but there isn't really one big-time gamebreaker among them. Sorry, I know he's been surprisingly good for them but when Kevin Hayes is your best player, I don't think you're headed in the right direction.

Giroux and Voracek are old. Provorov is good but he isn't the franchise defenseman they envisioned. Hart had a nightmarish sophomore season, one can only hope he rebounds next year. And then there's Nolan Patrick. Even when healthy, which isn't often, he's been a very marginal player. Even for a team that drafts as well as the Flyers do, that's an insanely bad swing-and-miss with a 2nd overall pick.

I suppose I should be grateful though. If they had chosen the young man who went fourth overall in 2017...

Not the Flyers fault Patrick missed a full season with post-concussion/migraine issues. We'll never know what he might have been.

Agree that this team has talent but is in between rebuilding and full of vets. Pick a lane.

Patrick wasn't a swing though. He was a concensus top-2 pick.

Even without the injuries, I've read his talent assessments were wildly inflated because he had man-strength in a boys league. In the NHL, he doesn't have that advantage anymore, and the injury concerns were readily apparent even before his draft year. I remember referring to him as the Greg Oden of the NHL, and so far, no fault of his, he hasn't done anything to change that perception.

I'm guessing Fletcher is going to try something big if he can. This team feels like it needs a major shakeup. I'm sure if he could, he'd probably move on from G and Jake.

Yeah but the red flags were there, one big reason why the Devils opted for Hischer. He's turned out to be even worse health-wise than expected. Not sure where they go from there, but if Morgan Frost can make his way into the NHL (first go-around didn't go well obviously) then it might be a moot point.
