I have had enough of this talk that somehow Patrice Bergeron is to blame for the Randy Jones hit. This is a case of media members trying to make themselves part of the story. See Don Cherry and his idiotic comments http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/hnic/coachscorner/2007/10/never_put_your_head_down_in_th.html. Bob Mckenzie writes that the prevailing opinion outside of Boston...

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...
Well, not bad for the first round... 4/4 in the East, but only 2/4 in the West; having picked Anaheim and Minnesota to move on.
So I will recap my predictions and update them for the 2nd round!
Detroit vs. Colorado... Oh, NBC must love this. I'm sorry to say this series won't have the same guts as the ones in the late 90s used to, but it should ...

[b]Randy Jones will get re-signed for $1.3 mill multi-yr deal.[/b]
[b]I predict Hatcher, Smith and Modry all off the books come next season.[/b] With Hatcher retiring/buyout and Smith/Modry leaving as FA's. Big Hatch does have 1 more yr left on his 3.5m contract, but I will go on a limb and point at Rathje to compare. Youngsters Parent and Kuks both played solid in t...
[b]The gunslinger strikes again.[/b] In typical Paul Holmgren style, the Flyers acquired defender Danny Syvret from the Oilers for center Ryan Potulny. Hockey is business and this trade was about each team believing that they traded-up to what they think could potentially pay off most for them in the future.
[b]From a Flyers perspective, it was just a matter of time ...

Many Flyers fans who watched all of the free agent and trade craziness in the last few days are scratching their heads wondering why the Flyers have only made a handful of relatively minor moves.
The answer is...Addition thru Subtraction !

Eric Desjardins has returned to the Flyers after just retiring two seasons ago, not as a player this time, but a coach. "Rico" will be working as a part-time developmental coach. He is expected to work closely with the prospects during the 8-day rookie camp that opens this Friday. With a veteran presence helping the young defensemen the Flyers have like Sbisa and Bourdon, ...
These are just for fun, and to get discussion going. If you disagree that's cool, just don't bash, as that always seems to happen on these boards.

Ok we all knwo the drill , I spin my charming lil roulette , it lands upon a team and I give my run down upon it. Well onto the spin.
and we have the Philedalphia Flyers.
With out question the flyers pulled off one of the biggest turn arounds in sports history last year. Going from a pathetic 56 point 22 win ending in the 06-07 to a incredible 95 point 42 ...
First and foremost, my name is Justin and I am the Atlantic Division Blogger over at IslesNation ( [url]http://www.islesnation.com/justin.php[/url] ) I am a tremendous Islanders fan, however, I enjoy every minute of hockey that I can watch from every team throughout the league. I write very truthful, unbiased pieces of work, whether it be on the Islanders, the Rangers, or ...
OK, I know the playoffs are around the corner and everyone is all hyped up about that. However, I already gave my playoff picks a couple weeks ago, and,,,, I figure now is as good a time as any to look ahead and give my 2 cents for next seasons lineup, since my predictions came very close last time.
Heres whats gunna happen, and, yes, you can quote me this, cuz its mon...
Myself, along with many other Flyer fans, are hoping that our boys from Philly will continuously turn on the red light over and over, game after game throughout the upcoming 2009-2010 NHL season.
Realistically, what fan of an NHL team doesn't want that?
When I make proclamation, "Many Goals for the 2009-2010 Season," I am mainly referring to aspects of the Flyer's ga...
It's no secret that the Flyers have played strong hockey at a very consistent pace all season long. Only a few times have the Fly-guys come out flat after a long break or struggled to get their game legs moving during the second night of a back to back pair contests. Overall, they have done extremely well against almost every team in the league, hence their conference lead...
By now, you've most likely heard about a rather bold move that was made last night by Paul Holmgren in order to add even more forward depth to a skilled Flyers lineup.
Homer has been known to make these kinds of moves, which Flyers fans can certainly appreciate as it's obvious how serious management is about winning the cup this year.
Flyers acquire Kris Versteeg from ...
The Philadelphia Flyers have reached a crossroads regarding their identity as a team. This identity involves things like purpose, intensity, drive, pop, those types of things all sort of rolled up together.
Facing a challenge of regrouping after a 4 game skid, the Flyers, as well as their fans, are looking for answers for their incredibly poor play. Many agree that it i...
It took only a few minutes for Sergei Bobrovsky to establish himself as the hardest working member of this hockey team.
Everyone else was essentially a no-show last night.
Bob has received tremendous recognition for his ability to bounce back last night against a hardworking Pens team by stopping 30 shots. He has also shown improvement in the shootout, which, despite...
This point in the season is possibly the worst time for there to be any doubt about whether or not the Flyers have bought into Laviolette's system.
The Flyers have 7 games left in the regular season. Yes, I agree with many that despite the Flyers recent struggles, they are still in better shape than they were at this time last season, which is commonly accompanied by th...
The Flyers played one of their best all-around games in several weeks last night. They were hungry for the puck, won a majority of the battles along the boards and played very solid defense in their own end. The forecheck was aggressive and they avoided costly penalties. Bob played the kind of game that the Flyers need him to play in order to be successful in the post se...
What are the Flyers doing???
Hind sight is 50/50 - Yes - but why start Leighton???
I still don't understand why they didn't ride Bobrovsky. Sure he let in a few stinkers but he had one heck of a season. He is young - he is a rookie - why not get him the playoff experience.
Will be interesting to see how Bobrovsky's confidence is after being a healthy scratch for t...
Three of the four remaining playoff series are currently sitting at 2 games to none.
[i][b]Detroit, Philadelphia and Washington all find themselves in the uncomfortable position of having the NONE part of the expression.[/b][/i]
[b]Judging by the way the playoffs have gone so far, none of these teams should be counted out simply because they are down by a couple of g...
As most of us know by now, Flyers welcomed several new players yesterday in lieu of their blockbuster deals which sent former captain Mike Richards to LA and leading goal scorer Jeff Carter to Columbus.
Here's my rundown:
1. Carter - The guy has a killer wrist shot. There's no doubt in anyone's mind that his scoring prowess will be sorely missed. Despite the fact tha...
First blog in quite awhile for me. But today I am going to be doing my predictions for every notable player on the Flyers roster today. Please note that these are if every player plays 82 games, which will NOT be happening. So give/take 5-10 Goals less! I will also be including the players +/- stat.
[b]Giroux[/b]: 30 G, 75 A, 105 P, +13
Right now, the Flyers line up something like this:
Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
B. Schenn - Lecavalier - Simmonds
Laughton - Courturier - Read
McGinn - Talbot - Rinaldo
Rosehill - Hall
Not a bad forward group right? And the D line up like so:
Coburn - Timmonen
Meszaros - Streit
Grossmann - Schenn
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...
Directly in the midst of the Mike Babcock wildfire, the Philadelphia Flyers agreed to terms with defenseman Yevgeny Medvedev on Wednesday.
Medvedev hails from Chelyabinsk, Russia and has been a member of the KHL’s Ak Bars Kazan since 2007. During his eight seasons with the team he was named an All-Star three times and additionally won two Gagarin Cups (KHL’s Stanle...
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-...
