    If Wiese plays like he has for the past couple of weeks, he's probably going to stay. It looks like the light bulb has turned on for him.

      Lyubi is an RFA and I don't see them just letting him walk. He was one of their best 4th liners when he played (notwithstanding the obsession with VDV). He may go back to Russia, but that's probably going to be his only option if he doesn't resign.

        I think Hexy has to free up a role on the team for Lyubi. The problem this season was that there was some unknown with who he was and how he'd play. I think if you remove your UND glasses, you'll see that he's not just a better player than CVV, he is a MUCH better player in every aspect of the game. Playing CVV ahead of Lyubi after we saw what he could do is one of the reasons why this team has been so on and off this season.

        Hexy needs to have a straight discussion with Hakstol and let him no that moving forward...no more nepotism.

          Is Lyubi any better than CVV? Really? Can he kill penalties? Honestly our issue this year had little to do with our 4th line, and a lot to do with horrible goaltending for stretches followed by an inability to score.

            Can Vandevelde? I mean, I know he plays on the pkill unit, but can he actually pk?

              Good point, but VV has to have incriminating photos of Hak from their North Dakota days.

              Doubt Lyubimov has any of those.

              What would Fred do?

                I think he's Hakstol's illegitimate son by a UND sorrority girl.

                  I don't really understand the argument of pointing to Bellemare and VDV as the go-to pk guys to demonstrate importance when the Flyers PK is in the bottom third of the league.

                  Totally fine with seeing how any bottom 6 forwards would do in the place of VDV on the PK.

                    Lyubimov has a better shot than anyone on the fourth line..couple of his goals he showed that..he also never seemed to take a shift off, i remember a dud of a game (and there were many) when he was the only player who was back checking...everyone else was coasting...that type of dedication and responsibility should be rewarded with more playing time, not punished with scratches...

                    maybe like Medvedev, before him, he was still adjusting to the N.A. game...but I hope they keep him....
