Flyers Mini Camp

Posted Tuesday | Comments 5
This is my first blog. Last week I spent 3 days over at the Flyers practice rink to watch some of their mini camp. I just needed a hockey fix in mid July and this was perfect. I spent Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday over there. Wednesday and Thursday were all drills and your typical hockey practice. Friday was a scrimmage between the two groups. New Flyers asst coach...

In Case you forgot:

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Just in case people forgot who Steve Downie is. http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Columnists/Fidlin/2005/10/31/1286377-sun.html Interesting to see that the guy doesn't even make it to the regular season before he fully establishes himself as a gutless player at the NHL level. Very dissapointing to see rookies potentially destroying the career of the veteran players in the hop...

The HIT - Sens/Flyers review

Posted Wednesday | Comments 3
Took in the FLyers-Sens game last night. *YAWN* pre-season hockey is less than desirable. Even the kids trying to earn roster spots did themselves no favours last night. Nycholat fit in on the Sens blueline without any problem, he is clearly ready for a roster spot. I would say it comes at the expense of Schubert. I cannot imagine any sens fans complaining about tha...

Downie's Hit

Posted Wednesday | Comments 10
I'm sorry if this seems a bit unprofessional but this is my first attempt at a "blog" ever. I just wanted to comment on the hit by Downie on Dean McAmmond. Yes, it was definately an unappropriate hit. He did leave his feet using his body as momemtum driven projectile and he claims thats part of his game, finishing checks. But there's a right and a wrong way to thro...
I want to take a slightly different look at the recent furor at headshots in the NHL. Do I think they should be minimized? ABSOLUTELY! Do I think they can be completely eradicated? No, I dont, they happen, this is a fast game played by fast men but just because something is a head shot doesnt mean it should automatically be grounds fro a suspension. Hell anytime a big d-ma...

Downie getting crushed. If this video doesn't show for you, please click the link below. After watching a lot of Downie's "highlights" and I use that term loosely I am really surprised he even is at the play level he is on. If you look at any of his video's you will see the temper in this kid that shouldn't be brought out in a professional sport other than UFC. He lets hi...
[img:left]http://hfboards.com/imagehosting/2020946fabb71c7c52.bmp[/img] I cant believe the outrage over the Downie hit. if people want to be outrage, watch the game before making a call. Before the "hit", Scuburt hit on downie was alot worse than what Downie did. Where was everyone crying when Neil did to Drury last year? Where was one when Colby Armstrong did it FI...
Since the issue seems to have overtaken all else in the hockey world in terms of importance and exposure, I figure the Downie hit is as good of a play as any to spark my first commentary on hockeybuzz. First off, due to some frustrating technical problems with the NHL Center Ice Online package, I was unable to see the hit live, but I did listen to the audio feed from th...

FREE STEVIE DOWNIE!!!!

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
He's being hung on the woodshed by hypocrites on this site and hypocrites around the nhl
For all those fans out there who have watched Flyers fans fire back over and over with ludicrous accusations, I apologize. As a Flyers fan, it pains me to see what is currently going on not only with Steve Downie himself, but with other Flyers fans. On one front, I am proud to be a fan of the organization because I can see how the fans here rally together and will defend t...
Getting right into the Downie thing: -Yes, dirty hit -Yes, deserves a suspension of at [b]LEAST[/b] five games -Should Downie be banned for life or even 20 games? No. Look at the replay closely. He doesn't lead with the elbow and honestly it's really borderline if he leaves his feet [b]BEFORE[/b] the contact. Based on Downie's past he deserves to not be treated...

Balancing Passion and Reason

Posted Friday | Comments 6
I figured since everyone else was talking about Steve Downie knocking Dean McAmmond into next week that it was time to throw my take on the incident out there. Why? Because I think a lot of people are letting their passion get in the way of reason, like they often do when incidents like this happen in sports. There’s no question that when you see something like thi...
With all the hits to the head lately why has they not been a severe suspension. Players wont get the idea until someone is suspended for more then a measley 4 games. Suspend them for 20 then if they do it again for a season. Will the NHL only do it when crosby gets his head cracked open. Dean Mchammond has been takin off the ice on a stretcher twice in the last 4 months. T...
In the past week we have had a front row seat to see how the current review committee, and Colin Cambell, determine player suspensions. We all saw the hit, the coaches responses, player responses, media input, public outcry, etc, etc etc. Its a long, and flawed, system that in the end determines a punishment which is usually met with and equal amount of approval and displ...

Head Shots

Posted Thursday | Comments 5
In the Vancouver-Philadelphia game, Flyers winger Jesse Boulerice viciously two handed Canucks center Ryan Kesler in the jaw. It was a flagrant, brutal action and Boulerice is certainly deserving of a nice, long suspension. Where it gets interesting is the Flyers have a guy currently suspended. That would be Steve Downie, who was suspended for twenty games for his bruta...
I had a co-worker come up to me today an ask me if I saw the Tootoo hit last night. I told him that I had not, and he proceeded to get all excited, exclaiming that it was, "Just like Downie!! Oh man it was the same thing again!!" So I figured I should take a look myself to see what really happened. So I went to tsn.ca and watched the highlights from the Coyotes-P...
Where is Weller Suspension? that’s right the refs got it wrong giving him an match pentaly Where’s Tootoo’s Suspension? I didnt happen nhl still holding a grudge against the flyers all these years.....
As most of you already know, Jesse Boulerice was suspended for 25 games after his crosscheck to Ryan Kesler's face a couple days ago. The question is, was it enough? By terms of Chris Simon getting the same sentence last year, yes, it's a perfect punishment. But by terms of Steve Downie getting 20 for an unnecessary hit on Dean McAmmond, Boulerice should have gotten...

Boulerice waived

Posted Monday | Comments 0
At this point I will say good riddance to this guy. He has been trouble from day 1 and I think will continue to be trouble. People may argue the same about Steve Downie, however I will counter with Downie's ability to put pucks in the net. That's the reason Downie may still see the light of the NHL, but Boulerice may not. All in all, I think this is a good waive for the Fl...

Randy Jones. Good. Young. Talented. Aggressive as any normal hockey player, not overly aggressive, but not afraid of contact either. Now. What happened. Was this the same as Jesse Boulerice and Steve Downie. No. Not today and not any day. This did not have intent from what I saw. This was a bad hockey decision made in the flow of the game.

The Snowball amid the Firestorm

Posted Wednesday | Comments 8
Like a misbehaving toddler, a Flyers player is once again sent to the timeout chair. This time it is Scott Hartnell, and he gets 2 games to think about what he did - which is quite convenient because while he's thinking, he can read the scribblings on the wall left by Randy Jones, who occupied the same chair just a month earlier. And just like Randy Jones, Hartnell can...

Here we are again folks... Hurricanes vs. Flyers... It's remarkable to think that for all the trades between these two teams in the past, only Rod Brind'amour, Justin Williams, and Sami Kapanen remain. Now, with all do respect to Kapanen, who has transformed his game and is an excellent player in his own right, looking back I would wager to say that Carolina got th...

SUSPENSIONS

Posted Wednesday | Comments 11
I am not here to say that the Flyers should not have received the suspensions they have received. I am fine with the suspension. My problem is the inconsistency within the league with suspensions being handed down. Why does a player need to be injured for a suspension to be handed down?

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...

Downie Doesn't Get It

Posted Monday | Comments 26
Steve Downie may have avoided a suspension for his sucker punch on Toronto's Jason Blake on Saturday night, but all eyes will continue to be on him each time he laces up the skates for some time to come. His antics in the infantile stages of his NHL career may just be the tip of the iceberg. If he keeps it up, his run as a pro may end up being over almost before it even tr...

Downie Hurt Himself

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Look, like it or not, Toronto is the center of the hockey universe. Everything is blown out of proportion. Downie's action made for good air time, both on the the TV and written. That creates preasure on the league to "investigate" to at least curtail the media buzz the punch created. That punch however, damaged Downie's reputation with his peers far more than Blake's face...
Bob Clarke recently had a few choice comments about the latest Steve Downie tempest in a teapot and, of course controversy followed. Clarke said that he "loved" when Downie punched Leafs forward Jason Blake in the face earlier this week, because Blake ran his mouth about Downie when he was suspended for his hit on Ottawa's Dean McAmmond in the preseason. "Blake was a...

Weekly thoughts and predictions. http://flyerflies.com/blogs/Buts/ enjoy
Like they all say, a win is a win and that's what counts. For the Philadelphia Flyers, today's win is just that: a win. Mike Knuble scored two goals in the first period, and Mike Richards scored the eventual game winning goal on an exceptional play by Steve Downie whose come along very nicely in recent games (more on him later). Jim Dowd, and R.J. Umberger also scored f...
Last evening, in a Rangers-Thrashers game, Ilya Kovalchuk hit Rangers defenseman Michal Rozsival from behind, into the boards, while leaving his feet. It certainly meets all the criteria Colin Campbell listed when he ruled that Steve Downie's hit on Dean McAmmond was worth a 20 game suspension. To remind us all, Campbell said Downie's hit met the four requirements for a...

Mark Gage Needs Help

I thought I had seen it all when it came to people making biased comments regarding the actions of Philadelphia Flyer, Steve Downie, but Mr. Gage, it seems, has raised the bar when it comes to prejudice against the notorious rookie. In his recent Blog [url]http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?blogger_id=102[/url] , Gage concludes that Downie actually went so far as to fak...
If you had to pick one discussion topic this season that gets hockey fans talking, it would have to be suspensions. And no, I am not referring solely to Flyers fans (although we would certainly apply). Colin Campbell has made headlines all season long in deciding how and when he chooses to dole out his form of justice. One word pops into my head when I look back on Mr. ...

Burrowing Under Your Skin

For the Canuck fans who follow them tenaciously you've most likely noticed that Alexander Burrows has been a marked man all year. There's always extra pushes and face rubs whenever he's on the ice. Cooke and Kesler are normally the agitators when it comes to trying to get temper tantrums flaring but this year it's Burrows who's the prime agitator. Every team needs a pl...

Downie returns

I was a big Downie fan, even though he did more stupid things than good things as a Flyer. Can't wait for tonights game to see if the Flyers can return to winning ways or are going to rip off another losing streak. A win against the Bolts would be big.

Back when the 2008-09 season dawned, I was comfortable with Martin Biron as the Flyers goalie. I was content and hopeful that Biron and the team would come to terms on a contract extension that would lock up the entertaining backstop. Sadly, that position has changed.

Goaltender Semyon Varlamov turned himself in upon hearing there was a warrant out for h...
The Penguins have an extra forward, so they need a regular forward to be a healthy scratch.
