I was a very young kid when the Flyers were winning their Stanley Cups as the Broad Street Bullies. I do remember the team, but was not as versed in the sport. They were still my Flyers, but, as much as I love those teams, when I think back on my youth, I recall more fondly the mid 1980's Flyers teams. By 1980, the last finals run of the original Bullies teams was on. B...
I watched the Flyers 40th Anniversary DVD to see Ron Hextall's emotions, and have in me feelings rekindled that I had over the entire period that he was with the Flyers... That exuberance that he displayed epitomized what being a Flyer actually means... He, along with Bob Clarke, acted with the raw emotion that I would like to see in every Flyer, every game, every year. ...

The Tale of Two Cities

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Growing up with a passion and a love for two teams is harder than just one! My father grew up in Montreal in the era when the Canadiens were known as the flying frenchmen and were basically unbeatable. I was born in 1978, and hockey came into my life I would say right around 1982 when I was old enough to talk and enjoy what was being shown to me. This was the time that...

Numbers?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I have been following something over the last few years that I am sure that few have also seen or paid attention to, but something that I find interesting in an obscure and potentially meaningful way. When you look at sports leagues, what do players tend to care more about then salaries and winning? Most care a lot about the number on their backs. Some do not seem to ca...
Last night, Henrik Lundqvist achieved something spectacular. He earned his 30th win of the season, for the third straight year. What this means is the following: In each of Henrik Lundqvist's first three NHL seasons, he has at least 30 wins. This has not been done since Garden favorite Ron Hextall (37 wins in 86/87, 30 wins in 87/88, and 30 wins in 88/89). To Hext...

I don't...

Could Bryz be the one?

Growing up, my father told me of the bumper stickers that became popular in Philadelphia in the 1970s. "Only God saves more than Bernie." The sticker, in reference to Bernie Parent, the only goalkeeper in the Flyers' franchise history to win a Stanley Cup, has likely been copied and used in cities across the country. Just enter your goalkeeper's name and it works. ...
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...
I woke up to a text yesterday morning from a good friend that read, “WHO IS DAVE HAKSTOL?” Admittedly, I had no idea but a mere second later when I opened Twitter I knew he had just become the 19th head coach in Philadelphia Flyers history. In an off-season that is just over a month old for the Flyers, rumors swirled and swirled about former Sharks coach Todd M...
The unethical week continued for the Philadelphia Flyers when they signed winger Aaron Palushaj on Thursday. Palushaj (Puh-Loo-Shy), comes to the Flyers after spending the 2014-2015 in the KHL, marking the second time in as many days the orange and black have come to terms with a former player from the league. At 25 years old, the two sides agreed to terms on a one-...

Part one of Broad Street Sports off-season review will focus on the out of nowhere hire of the Flyers new head coach Dave Hakstol as well as taking a look at the system he plans on putting in place and how he will fit this current roster to his vision. First things first, why Hakstol? I as much as everybody else when they head the news of the hire said "who?". However ...

My Take on Weal Signing

Posted Friday | Comments 0
By Tim Panaccio I’ve been pretty nervous about the Flyers holes on the left side, especially after the trade of Brayden Schenn. Thursday night’s re-signing of Jordan Weal makes a lot of Flyer fans feel a bit more relaxed. I didn’t picture Jori Lehtera as a complete fix on the left side, nor did I see him as an adequate replacement for Schenn, who had the a...
Hextall was brought in as the Pittsburgh GM to right the ship due to his experience in building winners. The logic of ownership being that Hextall knows how to build a team up and Pittsburgh desperately needing it. It's a match made in heaven as years of cup-chasing and draft pick splurges have left Pittsburgh in hockey purgatory. Good enough maybe for a 7th-10th spot,...
