The New Look Flyers Are Primed For Success

Chris Pronger

After a whirlwind summer of unexpected trades and free-agent signings, many were left wondering how the Flyers would respond when they finally hit the ice on October 6th, against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins.
A quick recap of all of the moves show that 9 of the 22 names on the opening […]

The Flyers Are Spending Too Much Time Killing Penalties

Kimmo Timonen

It was an LA Confidential of sorts on Saturday night when two guys faced off on opposite ends of the country with something to prove. Mike Richards versus the Flyers and Bernard Hopkins versus a youthful Chad Dawson. Who would have expected that Hopkins would receive the first TKO of his career at […]

Richards Trade Was Blessing in Disguise

Phoenix Coyotes v Los Angeles Kings

“It’s just as environment in the dressing room where you can come and relax and play hockey and focus on putting the energy on the ice instead of wasting a lot off it.”
That was former Flyers captain Mike Richards speaking about his short tenure with the Los Angeles Kings. He was quoted by Sarah Baicker, […]

Here’s What The Flyers Must Do To Contend For The Cup

Ilya Bryzgalov

It’s been almost four months, but I can remember it as if it were yesterday. I was on one of my breaks at work as I heard news about the Jeff Carter trade to Columbus. It had been rumored since before the trade deadline, but I never actually thought it would matriculate. […]

NHL News and Notes: October 14, 2011

Jay Beagle

The following notes are my take on some of the news items that have circulated the NHL over the last day.  If a story has any relevance to the Flyers, it’s here.

Sean Couturier is moving in with Danny Briere. If ever there was a sign he’s sticking around, I would bet this is it. Couturier […]

Why Crosbys Concussion Concerns Me about Zac Rinaldo

Boston Bruins v Philadelphia Flyers - Game One

There have been conflicting reports that Sidney Crosby’s post-concussion headaches have intensified again after weeks of successful offseason training. The news, while advantageous for the Penguins’ Atlantic Division rivals, is disappointing for hockey fans. Crosby, whether you consider him a “crybaby” or not, is the best player of our generation and is its best ambassador […]

Flyers Moves Will Help Long-Term, Stifle Short-Term Future

2011 IIHF World U20 Championship - Day Eight

Now that the dust has settled and the smoke has cleared, it’s time to assess the trades that have rocked all of Flyerdom today.
Losing Jeff Carter and Mike Richards will cost the team about 60 goals next season. They’ve been replaced with promising young players, but none of the new crop have shown that they […]

Holmgren Blows Up Flyers- Carter, Richards Traded, Bryz Signed

Philadelphia Flyers' Richards celebrates his game-winning goal against Ottawa Senators with teammate Carter during their NHL hockey game in Philadelphia

“There is no fire sale.” – Paul Holmgren, days ago.
I don’t know what changed Homer’s mind, but it’s official- sweeping changes are coming to the 2011-12 Flyers, starting with the trades of centers Jeff Carter and Mike Richards and ending with the official signing of Ilya Bryzgalov.
Carter has been traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets, […]

Pronger Speaks with Media; Health Still in Question

Buffalo Sabres v Philadelphia Flyers - Game Seven

Chris Pronger spoke with the media via conference call earlier today. For a copy of the transcript, Chuck Gormley of the Courier Post has it posted here.
If you don’t have the time to read through the entire transcript, here are the major points:

Pronger was told his back surgery was successful but he won’t be able […]

Why Richards Needs HBOs 24/7 to Start Filming Now

Pittsburgh Penguins v Philadelphia Flyers

I made my argument for why Mike Richards doesn’t need to be stripped of his captaincy two weeks ago. Unfortunately, it’s a topic that refuses to die as the media continues to play the blame game for the Flyers’ lackluster finish to the 2010-11 season.
With the likelihood that the 2012 NHL Winter Classic will take place […]
