The Philadelphia Flyers have come off a less than desirable weekend, suffering back-to-back losses. Wait; make that two weekends of back-to-back losses.
A team with almost a dozen rookies having to play on any given night is going to have such setbacks. However, there are still veteran players that need to be more dependable and productive.
After the deflating weekend, fans are up in arms spewing vitriol hate and possibly unwarranted criticism.
Case in point, during a Sunday afternoon commute I tuned into the local sports radio station—94.1 WIP.
During that show I personally heard a caller go off about how Bryzgalov blew the game against the Rangers Saturday and elaborated on his $81 million contract. Hopefully I don't have to explain what's wrong with that sentiment.
The host did correct the caller on the salary (his contract is $51 million) but failed to correct him about Bryzgalov not even being in net Saturday due to the Flu.
Either way, Bobrovsky was hardly to blame for all the goals New York registered.
In pursuit of informing a fanbase, I have compiled this list of five players who—right now—are disappointments.
No, I am not listing the goalie who is off a shutout and allowed more than one goal twice in his last eight starts either because right now, that is not disappointing.
