First off, to any and all Canadian readers, DGS wishes you a Happy Canada Day again.
DGS felt a lot of pain
Amy: Considered dying her hair black again, she had it done orange on June 29.
Luc: Played out Free Agency on NHL 10, made reasonable moves, got a reasonable team, simulated 2010-2011 season, watched Flyers win come in 4th in Eastern Conference, 2nd in Atlantic Division (NY Islanders won it). Watched them beat San Jose in the Stanley Cup Finals in 7 games (Thorton played in 22 playoff games, had 11 pts...talk about realism).
Luc's opening day Flyers roster
Big Mid-season Trade: Sent Gagne and Hartnell to Calgary for Jarome Iginla and a 1st round pick (ended up being 3rd overall)
Signed Alex Frolov during January, 6.4 cap hit over 4 years (prorated for the rest of the season)
GP: 32 G: 15 A: 14 P: 29 PIMs: 8
Iggy's Flyers Stats:
GP: 14 G: 7 A: 5 PIMs: 23
G: Carter 44
A: Richards 64
P: Carter: 101
+/-: Pronger +52
PIMS: Carcillo 245
Yeah, Luc insisted we put this all in.
Turco was a 3.7 cap hit.
G: Briere 20
A: Pronger/Richards 24
P: Briere/Richards 33
Luc got into this, again, everything was simmed except roster moves.
Matt: Waterboarded himself in the shower, Waffleboarded himself after, Pinched himself in the hopes that he would wake up, begged for a Big Mesz trade to Calgary for Jarome Iginla, cried repeatedly for his bottle, rationalized that being single is a good thing, wished #DGSDateWatch would end, tried to "fire" the rest of the team, plotted the demise of Homer, came up with a clever post for next week that involves teaming with Don't Trade Vinny.
Basically, today sucked for the Flyers, prove us wrong, please.
