Third Period Redemption For Flyers in Wild 5-4 Win over Jackets

Mason_Giroux_BJs

Tweet
The last time that the Columbus Blue Jackets appeared in Philadelphia, goaltender Steve Mason was pulled from the game after allowing 7 goals on 28 shots. Mason was ‘tending for the Jackets in what would ultimately be a 9-2 drubbing from the Flyers, who finished second in the NHL that season in goals-per-game.
Mason’s record was [...]

Coburn’s Value Returning as one of Few Reliable Flyers Defensemen

Coburn_blackhawks

Tweet
Braydon Coburn has not received much praise over the last season and a half among Philadelphia Flyers fans (the nickname “Slowburn” comes to mind). I’ve been somewhat critical myself of the 28 year-old defenseman, suggesting in May that he had “fallen a bit on the depth chart behind [Nicklas] Grossmann and [Luke] Schenn.”
When Darren Dreger of [...]

Flyers “Stuck” With Extra Defensemen as League Spending Explodes

Tweet
The lockout that deprived stalwart NHL fans of their favorite brand of hockey last fall was, simply put, about money. Owners wanted a bigger piece of the revenue pie and the players tried to hold onto it as frantically as possible.
The explanation that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman passed on to the media was that the system [...]

Coburn, Meszaros on the Trading Block

Dallas Stars v Philadelphia Flyers

Tweet
The Philadelphia Flyers made official on Friday evening defenseman Mark Streit’s four year, $21 million contract that was previously reported almost two weeks ago.
With Streit on the books, the Flyers now have $33.25 million committed to the blueline in a year when the salary cap drops to $64.3 million. This number includes Chris Pronger’s cap [...]

Thinking Flyers Defense, Two Steps Ahead

Braydon Coburn, Justin Williams

Tweet
When I wrote the other day that the Philadelphia Flyers did not need to target big name free agent forwards in the offseason, I suggested that the organization could free up salary cap space by trading defenseman Braydon Coburn. I did not offer a reason why Coburn could or should be traded, and this led [...]

Tweet
Whatever faith you follow, be thankful that the Philadelphia Flyers 2013 season is almost over.
The Flyers announced this evening that Braydon Coburn and Andrej Meszaros will miss the remainder of the regular season with injuries. Coburn suffered a separated shoulder taking a hit from the New York Islanders’ Matt Martin while Meszaros tore his rotator [...]

Bouwmeester, Byfuglien Linked to Flyers in Trade Talks

Tweet
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that has watched the Philadelphia Flyers over the last two fifteen months that their defensive core needs improvement.
Two names that have been regularly linked to the Philadelphia Flyers in trade talks are defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Jay Bouwmeester. Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun is the latest reporter to address [...]

Offense, Special Teams Flop in 2-1 Loss to Rangers

2013_game7_bryzrangers

Tweet
The silver lining of the Philadelphia Flyers’ season to date is that Ilya Bryzgalov has performed like a confident starting goaltender should. He ranks 8th in the NHL in goals-against-average among goaltenders with at least four games played.
It’s a shame that the offense can’t support his efforts.
There was optimism heading into tonight’s game against the [...]

Placing Expectations for Meszaros in an Expanded Role

Dallas Stars v Philadelphia Flyers

Tweet
On a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was asked the status of 26 year-old defenseman Andrej Meszaros. Meszaros suffered a back injury this past March that limited him to 62 games, marking the second time in his seven year NHL career that he didn’t play at least 80 [...]

The Future of Flyers Defense Centers Around Matt Carles Future

New Jersey Devils v Philadelphia Flyers - Game One

Tweet
There is no player on the 2011-12 Philadelphia Flyers more polarizing than Matt Carle.
The loudest contingent of fans loathe him while many of the beat writers and bloggers that cover the team think the world of him.
Dustin Leed of The Hockey Guys has even suggested he’s about as good of a player as Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan [...]
