    I think Parent is criminally underrated, especially on hf. He doesn't have the flash of a big points or bone-crunching hits, so it's just assumed he's a tweener. If only he was more useful to their fantasy teams, he might get some more praise. I don't see it changing any time soon. Parent will continue to fly under the radar.

        That was quite impressive.

        In other news, the Phantoms won their seventh in a row and JVR finally broke through with a goal and helper.

        Edit: I guess they didn't win. The box score was up in the third with them ahead 3-2, so I figured that was that.

          • Here is a quote from Emery regarding Bordov (AKA "Bob"):


            TP: You played with Denis Bodrov in Russia. He’s one of the Flyers’ prospects they have had trouble signing. What did you think of him as a player?

            RE: Yeah, I talked to Paul [Holmgren]. We call him Bob over there. He’s a smart defenseman, a big dude. He can definitely play the game. I think he is a way’s away from coming over here to play. But they can definitely turn him into a player.

            • Did you see Popov in the KHL? He has a great year 13 goals 11 assists in 37 games. He is 2nd on the team he is one of the few player who not a minus. He is +2. I know it's though to get players from russia and I dont say he is the next Datsyuk or anything but I hope he will develop and maybe later we can use him.

                I'd love to see Popov or Bordov make a try for the Flyers next season. But there sure still seems to be major issues getting those guys to come over.

                Honestly, if i'm the Flyers, i'd just keep away from investing draft picks on Russian players until we see changes.

                  I am a little surprised they did not bring Bodrov over this year. He got kicked off his KHL team in December and has not played anywhere since. It would have been a good oportunity to come over and play for the Phantoms.

                  • The inactivity in this thread shows just how low the farm system has sunk. The best prospects seem to be two guys that can never come over here. There's nothing in Adirondack and I haven't read squat about anybody in junior or college. No first rounder this spring ain't gonna help either.

                      Good thing nearly every player we have is going to be around another 10 or 12 years.
