At 40 Jagr Can Still Play With The Best Of Them

The Orange And Black Will Need Scott Hartnell To Continue To Shine

In the beginning of the season, forward Scott Hartnell was sitting on the bench and not playing more than ten minutes per game.  Now he’s the leading goal scorer for the Philadelphia Flyers and is on pace to have the best season of his career.
Hartnell was struggling to find his game early in the season […]

Will Scott Hartnell Make The All-Star Team?

Early this season, Scott Hartnell was struggling. In his first 7 games, he only managed 0 goals and 2 assists, often looking out of place. Some games he was even dropped to the 4th line, averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game. Rumors began to swirl that the Flyer’s were looking to […]

The Flyers Are In Desperate Need Of Last Year’s James van Riemsdyk

In the offseason, the Philadelphia Flyers did a complete overhaul of their team.  It included trading two of their leading scorers, signing a number one goaltender, and signing James van Riemsdyk, better known as JVR, to a new contract.

Christmas Gifts For Each Of The Flyers (Part 2) The Forwards

Danny Briere: Lots of fist pumps. The more Briere is scoring the better off the Flyers will be. Having multiple lines, in addition to the Giroux line, which always is scoring ( or so it seems) will give the Flyers great balance in the playoffs.
Claude Giroux: A Kevlar helmet. The Flyers need to keep him […]

During last season’s short but eventful playoff run, chants of “J-V-R! J-V-R! J-V-R!” thundered throughout the Wells Fargo Center as the forward who goes by those initials dominated Sabres and Bruins defenders and made them look like they were still in their local Peewee league. The Flyers’ highly touted power forward had finally claimed his […]

James Van Riemsdyk: Key To Flyers Success

If the Flyers weren’t sure how much James van Riemsdyk’s presence means to the Bullies, they are after an embarrassing 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers. The Jersey native didn’t play in the contest which made Matt Read and Daniel Briere seemingly invisible on the ice.
Van Riemsdyk is quietly on his way to having […]

Matt Read Is Making A Good Case For Calder Trophy

Matt Read is making a case for himself to be a Calder Trophy candidate, for the best rookie in the National Hockey League.

Schenn Odd Man Out When Healthy

The Flyers were forced to test their forward depth tonight while injuries continue to keep Danny Briere, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn out of the line-up. Defenseman Matt Walker was sent down to the AHL earlier this week to clear the cap space necessary to recall Ben Holmstrom and Harry Zolnierczyk, though Harry Z did […]

Spotlight On A Flyer: Matt Read

Over the summer, Chris Pryor, director of hockey operations for the Flyers, raved about Matt Read, the unheard of prospect out of Bemidji State University. General Manager Paul Holmgren also raved about the 5’10 winger out of Ilderton, Ontario. Little was known about him by almost every Flyers fan coming into this training […]
