I can't believe no one has commented on this yet. After the huge game 7 disappointment, the Chris Pronger kick to the collective groins of Oilers fans, ticket price increase, injury ravaged, non-puck moving D man of a season, Joffre Lupul single handedly gets the Calgary Flames into the playoffs. I know I'm a little late in posting this, but last nights utter snoozfest aga...
[u][b]Ohlund for Ryder[/b][/u] This trade makes sense to me. The Canadiens are not going to sign Souray (and why would they). Ohlund could come in at a good price and replace Souray. Ohlund is big and has good offensive / defensive abilities. A better package for less money. Ryder fits the bill of a scoring winger to play with Morrison and Naslund, and probably cou...

Slow start but smart moves

Posted Monday | Comments 0
July 1st in the NHL always gives you the feeling of Christmas, the oilers did there best to fill holes that are open and to improve the tea. The move to trade Jason Smith and Joffery Lupul for Geoff Sanderson and Jani Pitkanen was a great start. Sanderson will add some great veteran experience that is needed since Smith is gone, he will also be a dependable 3rd or 4th line...
[b]Jason Smith : A Steal for the Flyers?[/b] July 7th 3:42 PM: Last week, the Philadelphia Flyers traded Joni Pitkanen, Who is a young defenseman who racked up 43 points last season, and Geoff Sanderson, Who is considerably one of the fastest players in the NHL, He racked up 29 points. The Flyers acquired Joffrey Lupul, Who most Edmonton fans believe was a very bad acq...

A NEW ERA!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Philadelphia, PA. July 27, 2007 The puck drops in just over Two Months! Our Fly Guys begin a new season October 4th. ARE YOU READY? I AM! Last Season was a mess. From an opening night shut-out disaster against the in-state rival Penguins (4-0 in Pittsburgh) to a General Manager hanging it up to the firing of a Hall-of-Fame Caliber Coach to the injury woes to...
Ok, so everybody else is writing a blog now, so I guess i'd better do one too so everyone knows how I feel about the upcoming season. I guess the best way to describe my feelings about the upcoming season is to say that I am cautiously optimistic. I am very happy about the additions that Homer made and despite what anyone says, I don't think he overpaid at all. He paid wha...

Lupul day-to-day

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
According to Holmgren, a sprained wrist: http://flyers.nhl.com/team/app?articleid=338418&page=NewsPage&service=page
All good things must come to an end, even the Philadelphia Flyers 5 game winning streak. But the Flyers had to try to defend that streak largely without the services of star forward Simon Gagne. The Flyers began their season-long 8 game road trip by visiting the Florida Panthers, but Olie Jokinen and Gregory Campbell made sure that the Flyers did not continue their winni...
[b]Holy Schnieky![/b] [img]http://cdn.nhl.com/images/logos/75/phi.gif[/img][img]http://cdn.nhl.com/images/logos/75/pit.gif[/img] [b]Wow[/b]...words can hardly begin to describe what happened at the Bank Building. Coming into last night's tilt, the Flyers were a dreadfully inconsistent team searching for some home-ice answers; while the Penguins were the team on a ...
. . . then here are some stats you may wish to contemplate. - In 2006-2007, R.J. Umberger at minus-32 had the lowest plus/minus rating in the league. This year he and Randy Jones are tied for first in that area with plus-9. - Second worst plus/minus rating in the NHL last year: then-Edmonton Oiler Joffrey Lupul (minus-29) What a difference a year makes! - People...
The first 20 minutes of tonight’s game vs. the leafs has brought mixed emotions for flyers fans. The flyers have scored only one goal in the last two games but thanks to Newmarket native Steven Downie and Jeff Carter some offense has been produced. Just under 10 minutes into the game Downie notched his first National Hockey League goal; he looks pretty comfortable play...

Flyers in 7

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I want to start off by saying that this Washington team is going to be a force to reckon with for years to come. The combination of Semin and AO is going to be lethal for several years and the young nucleus around them is only going to get better. Just like the Flyers, from where Washington was last year just getting to game 7 in the first round of the playoffs is a great ...
"...The shot from the point by Timmonen...rebound...THEY SCORE...jOFFREY LUPUL!!! AND THE FLYERS HAVE WON IN OVERTIME IN GAME 7!!! They're going to the next round..." Thank you Jim Jackson. Thank you Joffrey Lupul. Thank you Hockey Gods. What a ridiculously suspenseful game. I laughed. I threw stuff at my TV. I yelled at the refs. And I definately jumped ...
I am a fan of a lot of British comedy. Basically, anything from Python, to Fawlty Towers to Eddie Izzard to Benny Hill. I nabbed a copy of "Shaun Of The Dead" on amazon.com for a dollar last week. Great bang for THAT buck. Anyhow.... -Rivalries. They spur the emotions, and get a nice level of blood lust going for fans. One thing I am seeing more and more of is the back ...
Team 1260 in Edmonton is reporting that the Flyers have reached an agreement with Right Winger Joffrey Lupul. The deal is rumor to be a four-year extension and Sportnet is reporting that it will be about 4.25 million per year. Lupul finished last season with 46 points in just 56 games. He was on pace for well over 30 goals before an unfortunate collision with teammate Deri...
The Flyers returned to the friendly confines of the Bank Building after taking 5 of a possible six points on their highly successful three-game road trip. After manhandling the Montreal Canadiens, by the score of 2-1 at the Bell Centre last evening, the Flyers knew they were coming home to face the Atlanta Thrashers. Yes, the same Atlanta team they steamrolled 7-0 li...
I was fortunate enough to go see the Flyers play last night, and finally, there came a time when they didn't seem to disappoint. I was sitting 10 rows up on the mezzanine level so i was WAY up there, but I was dead center and got to see the entire view of the rink which I love. I ended up taking my friend who took a bus down from Brooklyn because we are both die-hard fan...
Today, the Flyers lost a tough game by the score of 3-2 in overtime against the Hurricanes. This was a game that the Flyers could have easily won, but Cam Ward just played one heck of a game. You gotta give credit where credit is due. In the second period, the Flyers had numerous opportunities to score against Ward, but he shut the Flyers down. In my pregame blog, I said t...
After a pair of losses, the Flyers look to be a team needing help and solidification to a number of aspects to their game. And while I won't attempt to make excuses for the two losses, it is actually isn't all that surprising that the Flyers lost. The Flyers lost to Montreal because of a 3 minute lapse in judgement and a couple of crazy bounces. To top it all off, the...

Likely Flyers Moves

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Look for Biron, Lupul, Jones, vanRiemsdyk, some defenseman and picks. Who wants Jones, my thought is Hitchcock in Columbus, especially if we include van riemsdyk, we are likely to get a cheaper, good skating defenseman, with size, still cheap like Methot but they may want NHL ready like Upshall or Asham Lupes only gets traded if we get a big time defenseman back, by...
The Flyers headed into the offseason after a disappointing 1st round loss to the Penguins in the playoffs, perilously close to the salary cap ceiling and looking to add the pieces neccesary to compete with the Penguins in the years to come. GM Paul Holmgren felt comfortable with his forwards and addressed the goaltending position by adding KHL refugee Ray Emery. The Flyers...

The New-Look Ducks

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
For the first time since the PPG line of 2006-2007, the Ducks have legitimate secondary scoring. The signing of Saku Koivu and the shipping of Chris Pronger to Philadelphia for Joffrey Lupul (and Luca Sbisa + Draft picks) accomplishes something that has been sorely lacking in Anaheim since Edmonton snatched Dustin Penner with a huge offer sheet and Andy McDonald was shi...
[b]LEAFS LOSE[/b] Francois Beachemin Kris Versteeg Tomas Kaberle Mikhail Stefanovich 7th Round conditional pick *It hurts to see Kaberle go, but it was inevitable. Weird to think now, that the longest serving Leafs currently on our roster are Kulemin and Grabovski. As for Kris Versteeg, it was never really working out. He fits a team like cup contender like Philad...
The most underrated player currently in a Leaf Jersey would have to be #19 Joffrey Lupul. Effective in all areas of the ice, the Lupster (trying out the nickname) has managed to keep up over a point per game pace so far through ¼ of the regular season. His play thus far has been overshadowed by that of Phil Kessel, but in the end, some time out of the spot-light may have ...
Last nights match, although tough to bear at some points, was one of the more entertaining games I have seen from the Leafs in a while. There were a lot of positives coming out of the game, but the negatives were the same as they have been for the last few years. I prefer ending on a good note, so let’s start with [b]the bad[/b]: 1) Not my biggest beef with the t...
[b][b]March 18[/b] [b][i]Leafs Lack of Leadership Hampering Results?[/b][/i][/b] Well, another big game for the Leafs on Saturday fell the way side once again. Toronto got a promising start from a nice backhand goal from Joffrey Lupul, who finally returned to the lineup after missing 25 games. But the Maple Leafs could not build on the early lead and completely f...
This is the the way I see this ship veering. Perhaps with a few of my own thoughts and theories, however this is the path upon which I believe the Leafs are embarking. In an attempt to add addition draft picks or in order to move up further into the top 10, Toronto General Manager Dave Nonis was hard at work pumping the phone lines and attempting to deal off some of hi...
Luke D The Maple Leafs had one of their worst seasons in franchise history this year, finishing 27th Overall and missing the Playoffs for two consecutive years. This left Maple Leafs President Brendan Shanahan no choice but to start over and make some changes to both the management and the players. It started with the addition of Mike Babcock. With Babcock at the he...
Luke D When the Leafs traded for Joffrey Lupul, they knew they were getting a great top six forward who could also play on the 1st Line if needed. However, injury problems have prevented him from making a larger impact on the team but he still put up a good amount of points and had a strong work ethic when healthy. Unfortunately for him, he had injury problems since h...
