A Look Ahead

Posted Wednesday | Comments 1
Missing the playoffs for the first time in years, the Flyers need to begin looking towards their future. They've already addressed this somewhat in-season by trading away veterans for younger players and draft picks. They've acquired their new #1 goaltender in Martin Biron, fiesty winger Scottie Upshall and three solid defensemen in Lasse Kukkonen, Braydon Coburn and Ryan ...
[b]Pain[/b] The Merriam-Webster's dictionary describes the word as follows: [i]noun[/i]: acute mental or emotional distress or suffering. We all know the feeling of missing the nail and hitting your thumb with a hammer. We all know the feeling of stepping on a child's toy with an armful of groceries and ending up looking at the ceiling with a swollen ankle. Ya ...

Game 6 vs. Game 7

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
I gotta say. I've tried to be relatively fair with my opinion of officiating in this series. Despite calls for "the fix" by ESPN, I tried to believe that things would work out somewhete fairly. There was definately time where the games went in the Flyers direction and we took advantage of it. However, I ahd a serious problem with Scottie Upshall's "diving" penalty las...
"...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 ...

Game 3...Flyers/Habs

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Thank god for DVR...because I got to see all of the important stuff... Let me just start off by saying I'm sick of hearing that the flyers are dirty. At the beginning of the season a couple players made some bad decisions. It cost us big time. Game over. We did our time. It's the end, and I don't want to hear about it anymore b/c it's irrelevent. The Flyers are ...

Flyers preview- 11/28/08

Posted Friday | Comments 0
In a matinee matchup today, the Flyers look to extend their winning streak to seven games. This should be a great game for many reasons. Number one, the Flyers are going to be wearing their new third jerseys, which look tremendous. Number two, this is the second game of the home at home. I think this game is going to be a tough, physical game because this is what happens a...
Once again, the opposing goalie just shuts us down, and in this case, Vesa Toskala was on his game tonight. Unfortunately, the Flyers could not do much against Toskala as they lost 4-2 tonight. The Flyers just didn't seem to have the jump tonight. In some sorts, that is understandable. Six games in nine days will do that to do you. But at the end of the night, you have to ...
Nothing else to really say about this game, so I'll put it into classic bullet point form. The good: Ossi Vaananen had a very strong game tonight. Made the initial save on what turned out to be the Devils first goal. This dude just doesn't make mistakes. Reminds me of a bigger Petr Svoboda. He never gets noticed, just does his job and does it well. Good game also ...

Why Carcillo is a good thing...

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
After my last blog about the Flyers possibly getting Pronger and Guerin, it is a wonder I even want to write another blog...but I figure that if I was wrong before, I have to be right this time. What am I right about? Daniel Carcillo is a good fit in Philadelphia. There are a number of factors necessary to truly appreciate the meaning of this deal: 1 - The deal ...
I have to say, when I first read about Upshall (and a 2nd) being traded for Carcillo I was pretty upset. Having given things time to digest, I'm not so upset. While I think the Yotes may have gotten the best of Homer on this one, this [i]could[/i] end up working out ok for the Flyers. While I really loved what Upshall brought to the team and believe he has a higher ce...
Now that the initial free agent frenzy is over, I'd like to review some contracts that have been handed out in order to assess the value of 3.5 to 4.5 million dollars on the open market. Or more importantly, to see how NHL franchises value that dollar range differently. Below are a list of forwards who have signed AFTER July 1st 2011 to contracts that will have an annual...
