Well, now that our season is over in Philadelphia, its obviously time to hear Suter or Weber to the Flyers rumors and there isn't really anything we can do to stop it. The Flyers have a lot of...

The Emergence of Sean Couturier

At this time last year, Sean Couturier wasn’t on any Flyer fan’s radar. He was a can’t miss prospect, top-5 projected overall pick who was fixed to go to one of the lesser teams in the league...

2 Minutes for playing hockey in Orange

When Brenden Shanahan took over as disciplinarian of the NHL I was very excited. I felt that maybe there would be an end to the "discipline wheel of fortune" that we've seen since the lock out, and...

Using 2007-08 to prove why the 2012 Flyers are Cup Contenders

This season has been a whirl-wind. From the post-season cleaning of house to the Pronger injury, to the goalie situation, to the rookies, to the deadline…this season has been nuts. Are we buyers,...

Why Something Has To Give With The Defense...

The Flyers have struggled defensively. It's not a secret. Although we have a solid record with the lead after two (19-1-1) but that's in large part to our explosive offense covering for the...

What A Steal, JVR Signs 6-Year Deal

JVR signed today for a 6-year/25.5 million dollar contract. There are pretty mixed reviews and most people are considering it a high-risk/high-reward play. Thats not how I see it.

Bryz' Even Newer Mask

A week or so ago BSH posted a page showing Ilya Bryzgalov's new goalie mask. It had a black cage and tigers on it. Well this link tends to think otherwise, which would be awesome. Tigers? Okay... Betsy Ross, Ben Franklin, the Constitution, the Art Museum Stairs, Ben Franklin Bridge, Betsy Ross Bridge, (I guess Walt Whitman gets no love...), Liberty Bell, big Flyers Logo, ZERO tigers, and the top of City Hall. Now that's a Flyer goalie mask!
