According to the team's website, the Phantoms have signed veteran goalie Brian Boucher to a contract. No terms were released. “Brian is a good goalie who will add depth to the organization and solidify our goaltending situation,” said GM Paul Holmgren in making the announcement. Boucher is a decent insurance policy should Antero Niittymaki or Martin Biron falter or...

Flyers Future

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
How nice is it to be a Flyers fan nowadays? At the All-Star break last season, the Flyers were sitting with 27 points and in the midst of a January where they accumulated four points - yep, four. The O&B were well on there way to the most futile season in the franchise's history. Oh, how times have changed. So far, 2007-2008 has seen our club return to - at th...
Last night, the Flyers did not play a good game. They lost to the Florida Panthers 3-2. It was an inconsistent effort, where in the first period, the Flyers had energy and played well. However, the second period was a different story. They gave up two goals that period and they played terrible. Usually, the second period is the period where the Flyers play their best, but ...
Going into this game, I don't think anyone expected this to be a game where the Flyers just dominate the Rangers in every aspect of this game. However, the Flyers did just that and they dominated the Rangers today in a 5-2 win at MSG. If you watched this game, you saw a Flyers team that just jumped on the Rangers and outplayed them today. The Rangers were terrible in every...

Doing Lines With the Flyers

Posted Friday | Comments 0
No, this isn't one of those scandalous stories with pictures of the Flyers getting wild at parties. Any Flyers fan can tell you that it's been a frustrating year of high expectations and largely disappointing performance from the guys in Orange and Black. A roster full of talent with the scoring consistency of Sami Kapanen (sorry Sami, I love ya but...). One can...
The Flyers are in the Stanley Cup Finals! Congrats to all the Flyer faithful, and even those who had their moments of doubt and pain. Mike Richards is becoming a leader before our eyes. His taking the game into his own hands against Boston, when he demolished Krejci, reminded me of Scott Stevens (only cleaner) on Lindros. As a Flyer fan who was psychologically injured ...

I told myself I would most assuredly start blogging on hockeybuzz immediately after Ilya Kovalchuk signed on somewhere. I said that yesterday.

I knew what I was going to say, b...

As a society we are obsessed with comparison. Our insecurity is palpable and on display in a very public way.

Swatting Away the Injury Bug

Every team finds itself with a few injuries over the course of a seaon, maybe 6 or 7, with most not missing a serious amount of action. There is always that one team every year though that seems to get the injury bug, and this year it is none other than the Philadelphia Flyers.

[b]...for the Philadelphia Flyers: [/b] They now know they will be at least 52 more regular season games without their top defender and captain, Chris Pronger. Although the efforts of Marc-Andre Bourdon and Kevin Marshall have sufficed, this cannot be effective over a long-term span, and a trade for a proven defender is necessary if the Flyers are serious about a St...

Is it just me, or has a wave of dread washed over Flyerdom? A few concerns I have heard are: Pronger is out for the season and playoffs, Claude Giroux was concussed and is rushing back too soon, Ilya Bryzgalov has not played like the all star he was in Phoenix, and the list goes on and on. I have one word for the fans: RELAX! If you are a Flyers fan like me, you view ...

Is there any question that Claude Giroux is feeling better? With 1 goal and 3 assists in last night’s contest in Dallas, the young center’s play was as fiery as his hair. If you observed the injury to his head last week, you probably started seeing visions of another Pronger-like catastrophe. During the intermission report, Bill Clement gave some insight on knee to ...

I don't see why everybody wants the flyers to get parise, nash, ryan, or even re sign carle, his cost will be much highier than his worth, he is at best a 4th defenceman.

Follow me on Twitter @PHI_Flyers First off, in case you didn't hear.. the Flyers sent an official trade offer to the Ducks for Bobby Ryan. Philly would be shipping off Meszaros, Read, Laughton, and a 1st Rd pick in '13. Ultimately, I would be okay with this trade. Matt Read had a great rookie season and I don't see him following in the footsteps of Leino in a product...

Captain Giroux, a Dream Come True

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
It looks like my man Giroux is going to be the next Flyers captain. I think that he is very deserving of this honor for many reasons. Giroux works very hard both on and off the ice and has a tremendous work ethic. His play is an example to all of the other players. The question is, will he be able to lead the Flyers? My answer to that is “yes”. Giroux always sti...
The Philadelphia Flyers find themselves 0-3 for the first time since 1995, in what was also a locked-out season. There have been many pitfalls for this team thusfar, and from what I've seen the team is playing worse and worse each game. In the Pittsburgh game, the two goals Pittsburgh scored on Bryzgalov came immediately off of faceoffs, the first one a PP goal on 3 Pit...

Another up and down week for the Orange and Black. On Tuesday night they looked great defensively and in net against a very good Lightning squad and came out with a 2-1 W, thanks to Tom Sestito.

Big Win on the Road

The Flyers just pulled off probably the biggest win of the season against the Islanders today.

Been awhile since this has been updated due to school and work but here we go!

[b]Playoffs?[/b] The Flyers have climbed back into the playoff race collecting 7 points out of a possible 10 during a 5-game home-stand.

It will be an interesting final few weeks of the season if the Orange...
[b]Hey, hey, hey, Goodbye[/b] What a whirlwind off-season for the Flyers thus far!

Every year since 1975 Flyers fans have been stuck asking "is this our year?" or muttering the phrase come spring time "there's always next season." Many times over the years Flyers fans have watched the Orange and Black come so close to reclaiming Lord Stanley but falling short in the end. While factoring in injuries and 'down' seasons I'm going to look at the case for the...

They are going to be one of the most d...
