Geoffrey joined Broad Street Hockey in June 2009. He is a graduate of Drexel University School of Law after graduating with a bachelor's degree in History and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Currently, Geoff lives in Fairfax, Va after growing up in Quakertown, Pa, 15 minutes south of Allentown.
As the degree suggests, Geoff is a huge political junkie. Anything you want to know about our 44 Presidents, Geoff most likely knows it. If you're curious, his favorite is James Knox Polk.
Do you see anything here to change the original thesis* of: "The two are not the same player, despite achieving similar results. Both men help their team spend more time in the offensive zone. Both men help their team outscore the opposition. Both men look fantastic when playing next to Pronger/Weber. Both men are looking at a very large payday this summer. Both men are less than physical defensemen. Both men have a fair amount of turnovers. But Suter is better at suppressing shots while Carle is better at generating offense." Me neither. * found here: http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2012/3/2/2830998/philadelphia-flyers-matt-carle-ryan-suter-nhl-free-agency-2012
As many have probably noticed, I am no longer compiling the morning links. The reasons are many, and simple: I'm happier without hockey.
Getting ready for Flyers camp, talking about mending lockout wounds, a couple DGB posts and a hilarious except from Sean Pronger's book.
On a day of multiple call ups, Luke Schenn and Jakub Voracek are your profiles from Voorhees. Also, Giroux wearing the 'C' and Luongo rumors to to satisfy the appetite.
The Flyers are arriving in camp, though there are still injury concerns. Lubomir Visnovsky still doesn't want to go to the Islanders, plus some lockout humor.
The threat of disclaimer of interest remains, though Teemu Selanne is optimistic. Meet Jeff Dimmen, reunite with Paul Ranheim and acquaint yourself with Marcel Noebels.
Welcome to 2013. The Phantoms fell in a shootout, England has supplemental discipline controversy, the NHL and NHLPA meet to try and end their bickering and more.
Updates from Phantoms practice, recaps of Team USA's 8-0 defeat of Germany and some dreaded CBA discussions.
Canada defeated Germany in the World Junior Championships, 9-3, and is still called sloppy and disappointing. Canada, man.
Naturally, not much written yesterday. The NHL gets holiday cheer returned and a weekly update on Flyers' prospects. Hope you have a lovely day with your families.
Paul Holmgren updated the status of several injured Flyers, including Andreas Lilja, Andrej Meszaros and Marc-Andre Bourdon, the Phantoms beat the IceCaps last night, and more stories from around hockey.
Updates from Phantoms practice, bad polling data on the NHL's popularity, and more depressing lockout articles.
Chatting with Mike Testwuide and Jason Akeson for those who like hockey and analyzing the NHL's complaint against the NHLPA for those who like wild scenarios of ending the lockout.
Rather than laughing at Santa Sacks commercials, we're lamenting Matt Ford's lack of production in the AHL and looking forward to the World Juniors.
Ben Holmstrom is back in Philly to see the doctor, Mike Eruzione's 'Miracle' jersey is for sale, a lawyer is thinking about suing the NHL and more European football deas for the NHL to adopt.
Recapping the Phantoms' 1-1-1 weekend, awaiting details on Ben Holmstrom's injury and celebrating the 25th anniversary of Ron Hextall's goal.
Perhaps you can look at the most recent proposals and explain what was so offensive that required one side to get up and leave instead of continuing to negotiate.
Optimism in negotiations, Baby Schenn wears a mic, defense in the A and Ellen Etchingham loves awful goalies.
Analyzing lockout financial data, proposing a solution to the lockout and writing letters to the owners.
