As a fan of the Colorado Avalanche since they moved to Denver, it's easy to know why I hold a special place for Peter Forsberg. How can I forgot Forsberg missing the entire 01-02 season only to return and become arguably the best player in the playoffs? Then there's the magic that Forsberg captured along with Milan Hejduk in the 02-03 where he won the Hart Trophy and helpe...

Count down to Camp

Posted Saturday | Comments 12
I don't know about all of you but I personally am itching for NHL hockey action. Flyers rookies open camp 9/8, a week from today. That doesn't sound long but right now it feels like an eternity. I am so anxious to see what this retooled team will look like on the ice. On Paper it looks awesome, but how long will it take it all to gel and run smoothly like a well oi...

It only seems fitting for the once labeled "The Next One" to have his retirement go unnoticed after all of the troubles Eric Lindros experienced in the NHL. As a Flyers fan, I believe that it's quite sad to see Eric go out this way--just last week I had scoped Youtube to find any tape on Lindros, back when he was with the Flyers, back when his future looked so bright. ...

More at http://pensburgh.blogspot.com I'd be more accurate doing a fight recap than a game recap. The Flyers destroyed the Penguins tonight by the score of 8-2. Both Joffrey Lupul and R.J Umberger were in competition with one another to see who could get the most points. Each got a hat trick on the night for the first time since 1985 that the Flyers have had two ha...
Let me first start by saying that this is my first blog, so if it sucks I apologize. I am a die hard Flyers fan, and am thrilled at the prospect of Peter Forsberg signing with the Flyers. Even at 70% I love watching Forsberg at work, and the excitement that I get personally from watching him step on the ice just about every other night is why I am excited about the possi...

Well, again not too much to say about last nights game, I said earlier that if the Sens put the same effort on the ice as they did against Tampa, they would get spanked, and they did, 6-1 to a very good, very hot Philly team.

Hockey has always been a very intimate sport. The players humble, the fans knowledgeable, the media low-key. In a way, I almost like that not as many people watch the NHL as other sports, because when I do come across those who are a fan - they know they're stuff. Hockey fans know their sport. In baseball, basketball, and football there are many more casual fans of the gam...

First, let's make something very clear. I am happy for Daniel Briere and Martin Biron tonight. I loved them while they were in Buffalo, and I still love them. They're the type of guys I'm going to follow the rest of their careers, regardless of where they play. Also, kudos to the Flyers in general for coming up big when it mattered most in this pivotal game 4. But.....

Flyers night @ the Phillies

I thought this was pretty cool of the Phillies to have a Flyers night. I saw alot of people wearing Flyers shirts and gear (jerseys etc) I got to the game and right as I walked in the Flyers were on the field. http://www.flickr.com/photos/neat1325/2548096666/in/set-72157605406936564/ Biron threw out the first pitch http://www.flickr.com/photos/neat1325/25472750...

I don't know that I need to rehash the game. Pre season is more about shaking off the rust and I can't complain too much about scoring goals on the Devils.

Well I have to admit, I did not like the Flyers chances in this game given it was the hated Devils IN New Jersey, it was their home opener, and it was Brodeur's 1000th game.

The good news is that there is a whole lotta upside to the Fl...
