11:53 pm
the series went kind of the way i feel the whole season did. no offense. the goal tending problems. the power play during the series just awful. where would you like to begin with this. >> i believe you summed it up pretty nicely. by and large, six goals in six games it's pretty impossible to win. power play went dead. first line wasn't able to do anything. i have a feeling ands there's no hard evidence to this. that something wasn't quite right with claude giroux. he's a better player than this. >> you're saying an injury. >> that's all i can suspect. again, it's just. >> in the playoffs, isn't everyone injured? it comes, outcomes the injury report and it's like every single player is. >> and he played, you know, to his credit. he really wasn't that good, vorachek was -- wayne smomdz kind of disappeared. they didn't have enough inspected dare scoring. if you shut down the first line
11:54 pm
they're cooked. >> schenn was most physical player in this game and he didn't do anything. >> he didn't. >> all of those guys. >> nobody scored but schenn had a very good series because he was an agetator. he was one of the guys i thought can hold his head high. >> when it comes to the power play. seems like they did miss sean couturier. >> they missed sean couturier more as an all around guy, as a second line guy, as the guy who can be a shut down defensive guy. one of the other things i thought happened early in the series looked like schenn gotisbehere was kind of out of gas, he's a college kid. never played this long of a schedule. he did come back, i thought game four, five, started him back. he wasn't as good as he had been earlier in the season. >> he fought so hard to get there. >> yeah. listen i think the flyers go out with their head held high.
11:55 pm
those two wins they had kind of gave them a sense they can go into the off season and carry something. >> because many people doubted they'd even go to the playoffs. there's no way. >> they didn't look like they could get there. put on a very nice run to get there. >> it's interesting because it appears we may have a goalie situation here. >> you think? >> it was unbelievable. but he's injury prone. what are you going to do. >> we've had a goalie sways in philadelphia. >> forever. >> since, you know, bernie, really. you know, you had lindbergh a for now year, hakstoll. most of the last three decades, we've had a goalie situation. neuvirth played great in the playoffs. neuvirth is a guy been around this league for awhile. more often a backup than starter. i don't know that i'd believes he the guy. mason is a guy when he's great he's great. he's extreme inconsistent. he went back in that game three.
11:56 pm
what i believe you have is next year they're both under contract one more year. mason for over 4 million, neuvirth i think a million 8, something along those lines, you sort it out, they got young goalies in the system. you hope one of those guys moves up and graduates. >> you hope. >> it's been three decades. of we've had this. >> we're due. >> we've been going through this forever. >> the fans gotten a lot of air time during this series but the philadelphia fans i thought they were classy today. gave the standing ovation at the end. was it just because they were heavily motivated to do that? . >> i think a little bit. i also think the fans picked up on how the team certainly improved in games four, game five. the team redeemed itself. i think the fans, the good fans, which is 95 percent of the fans are the good fans, they were
11:57 pm
embarrassed by what had happened at that game last week. they wanted to show that that's not who they are. that's not who we are. so i think they went out of their way today to show this is what philadelphia is about. good for them. >> good for them. switching gears to the eagles. trading out from eight to two. do you agree with the trade? >> i agree with the concept of the trade, yes. here's why. because. >> there's a but. >> here's, i'll give you the but. i can't sit here, lesley and tell you that carson wentz will be a top nfl quarterback. he goes to north dakota state. i've talked to people, read up on him. seen highlights of him. that doesn't make me say this guy will be top level. in concept i like it because. you clearly do not have a quarterback who can take you far in the playoffs. you need that. how do you get that?
11:58 pm
more often than not you go early in the draft and you take one. with mcnab they had that guy. a certainly a confident guy for a decade. you're at eight. you want to move up to two, you're taking a shot. if it worked, howie roseman is a genius and we build him a statue. if it doesn't, he's a joke and out of work two years. >> it's definitely a make or break deal. >> i give him credit for having the guts to put his reputation and job on the line. >> before we go, congratulations are in order for glen. being inducted into the philadelphia sports hall of fame. >> there are eight people in there. there's a world class water skier, a tennis player. respectable, some terrific people. >> very honored to be part of this institution, there's top people. i think they ran out of names. >> top of my list right here. glen macnow. the ceremony is may 26th.
