Christmas Gifts For Each Of The Flyers – Part 1

As 2011 comes close to turning into 2012, I thought it would be an interesting idea to give each Flyer a gift that will help them through the stretch run of the season and into, hopefully, the playoffs:
Ilya Bryzgalov: Consistency. “The astronomer” has shown flashes of brilliance so far this year, but has also left […]

With Girioux Out, It’s Time For JVR To Step It Up

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 […]

Flyers Can’t Help But Miss Pronger And Giroux

The National Hockey League has reported an increase in concussions over the past few weeks and the Philadelphia Flyers are one of the teams hit hard with two key players being lost to concussions.

Pronger, Schenn Out With Concussion-Like Symptoms

Eight days ago, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Chris Pronger, who is currently rehabbing from knee surgery, “said he had been experiencing headaches and nausea like never before.  He revealed he had passed a concussion test.”
It seems that, despite somehow passing a baseline concussion test, Pronger is still experiencing very obvious concussion-like […]

Should The Flyers Name A New Captain?


Almost all Flyers fans agreed during the off-season that Chris Pronger would make the next great captain of the franchise after Mike Richards was sent to the Kings.  Before the season started, the Flyers named Chris Pronger the 18th captain in team history.

Within the past calendar year, the Flyers have had two captains, Mike Richards and […]

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 […]

Pronger Out Four Weeks and Nodl on Waivers

The Flyers announced today that Chris Pronger will miss approximately four weeks following surgery on his left knee.  Paul Holmgren said on Friday that, “We’re not sure what it is” with regards to the “virus” that was plaguing him for over a week, but obviously he wasn’t telling the whole truth.
This is a huge blow […]
