Florida made a move as well. Fired the coach and his entire staff.

Simmonds is one of the few Flyers I actually kinda worry about.  Not because of his skill, but because he's a dirty fvcking piece of garbage, and I'm always worried he's going to hurt someone.

 

Ship him up north, please.  Please do that Homer.

 

Every Devils fan I know would love if Simmonds were a Devil. He's one of those players. I've never seen him play "dirty", just play with complete intensity, which sometimes walks the fine line.

I agree, I'm not sure why everyone always hates on Simmonds. To me, he's just a hard working, tough player. He'd be the perfect tough guy to have on our team. Hartnell, on the other hand, is another story...

My problem with Simmonds is his propensity to start garbage when the Flyers are invariably losing.  He's the one who started that Parise-getting-slewfooted, Schenn-getting-whaled-on thing when the Flyers were down big to NJ - one that somehow ended at even strength.  He also took out Zidlicky with a dirty hit late in that series.

 

He also started the brawl in Washington.

These plays are some of the few I had in mind when making my comment earlier.

 

He's got some skill, sure, but he's a goon.  Don't let the stats fool you - if his team is losing, he'll try and hurt someone.

Yup - I was just about to mention your first example. I remember Simmonds being the reason for a whole lot of beer league antics and cheap shots. I would guess the poster just made up what they wrote.

I've watched a lot of Flyers games and this is 100% accurate.. He is a goon with skill, but a goon nonetheless.. And as you said, he especially looks to cause trouble when his team is about to lose
