How many wins did Bryz cost the Flyers?

Basic method: Retrieved the even strength, shorthanded and powerplay save % statistics for the top 60 goaltenders listed on by save%. Bryz was listed as 60th on that list. Calculated...


Holmgren's history at the trade deadline (and why the negativity was excessive)

I know there are users here on BSH who stay out of the game threads because they don't necessarily enjoy dealing with the rapid mood swings, irrationality and occasional unnecessary arguments that...

Giroux, JVR, Timonen, Carle, Simmonds to have surgery

Yes Claude Giroux is going to have surgery on both wrists, JVR had a torn labrum to deal with, Timonen was battling with a fricking BACK injury (those suck), and Carle and Simmonds dealt with torn abdominal muscles and a broken finger respectively


NHL Draft 2012: Options on defense in the first round

Great FanPost here. Bumped to the front page. - Travis The Flyers have a first round draft pick! And we know about it more than a few days in advance! The Flyers will pick at #20 in the draft. To...

Devils trade for Marek Zidlicky

Palmieri, Foster, Veilleux, 2nd round pick and conditional 3rd round pick for Zidlicky. Not sure how Zidlicky fits on the Devils roster (they're pretty deep on D) but the Devils have definitely made themselves stronger, even if only marginally, for the short term


In 2010-11, Nicklas Grossman was pretty good

This is going to be a very short fan post compared to some of my recent ones. But it's something that I thought was worth bringing to everyone's attention. Nicklas Grossman is a defensive...


Applaud Giroux: Is #28 currently the league's MVP?

A while ago, I saw a post on another SB Nation site making the case that one of their players is currently the Most Valuable Player in the league. Interestingly, when noting potential rivals for...


Revisiting Balanced CorsiRel and OZ start % (equations edited)

Edit: the equations I initially included in the article did a close job of dividing the data into four quartiles; but I repeated the calculations with an aim to get closer to the ideal division....


Why Jagr may not be such of an overpayment, and why Talbot is

I'll get right into it.   I am firstly comparing Jaromir Jagr's contract to Nikolay Zherdev. Both were one year deals for enigmas coming out of the KHL that have had a history of locker room...


Some Wayne Simmonds stats

This is going to be short. I just think we're in need for some more education on Wayne Simmonds and this could be a starting point. Note that all rankings in the LA team are based on forwards who...


Centers the Flyers have selected in the first round

This is going to be a short one, but it's just a bit of a 'well done to the Flyers' post.   Some of these guys (Barber and Gagne, for example) were centers when they were drafted and switched to...

Carle's ultimate betrayal

"I hope this Joe Morrow is a future Norris contender, and more importantly a Stanley Cup winner" - @TRADE THE TRAITOR@

Asham calls Crosby 'dog poop'

OK I took it out of context (isn't that what you do if you want to create a media storm?). The full quote is: "He’s like dog poop, he’s everywhere," said forward Arron Asham, who has just returned from a concussion himself. "We see him around; he’s always got a smile on his face. He’s happy to be around and we’re happy to have him." Good to see Crosby coming back though. I can't bring myself to hate on a player who's out with a bad concussion (particularly when some of my favorites like Lindros and Gagne have had concussions take them out of their prime). Once he's back to full health then I will be safely able to hate him again.

Blues trade Erik Johnson (2006 #1 pick) in major swap

Johnson + Jay McClement + conditional 1st for Kevin Shattenkirk + Chris Stewart + conditional 2nd In the last 10 drafts, Johnson has been the only #1 pick to be a defenseman. So far you could say that the next 4 selections after him (Jordan Staal, Jonathan Teows, Nicklas Backstrom and Phil Kessel) have had more impact, but he is a promising player nonetheless. But then again, so is Shattenkirk. I think how Shattenkirk ends up progressing with St. Louis will tell us who won this trade.

Paul Holmgren: GM of the Year?

According to staff writers and their quarterly predictions. Giroux was also suggested to be the Selke runner-up and Bob the Calder winner.

Another perspective on the Kovalchuk saga (ILWT)

There is a point to be made, I guess, on needing to stop these contracts somehow.

Jewels from the Crown versus In Lou We Trust

Great analysis. More here. Quisp does a great job over there.

Simon Gagne's Life and Career thus far

This may be considered a shameless act of self-advertising, but I went to the effort of creating an archive of sorts of Gagne's career with Philly that might interest you Tampa Bay fans. Part 1 and Part 2. Enjoy. I wish he was still a Flyer.


12 For The Memories: A Tribute To Simon Gagne (Part 2) [Completed]

1998-2004: Part 1 After the jump we go through the rest of Gags' career, beginning from the lockout year: 04-05 (which wasn't a season with the Flyers, but a comment suggested I give some more due...


12 For The Memories: A Tribute To Simon Gagne (Part 1)

Were you entertained Philadelphia? When you evaluate the highs of Simon Gagne's career, the rookie season, the game 6 goal against Tampa Bay, the 40 goal seasons, the successful return from...


Looking at the 2011 Salary Cap Hell

   The offseason is slowly slowing down, but the discussions at BSH are raging like usual. One of the points that has come up often is the situation for next year's cap. While some are content,...


The uncertainty of goaltending

I've been pretty high on some of the elite young goaltenders out there like Jonathan Bernier and Cory Schneider. Even some of the goaltenders in the Flyers' farm, like Johan Backlund, Joacim...

Anaheim Calling - Get Carter

Arthur from Anaheim Calling, the SBN Ducks site, has done a bit of a writeup on a Carter for Bobby Ryan proposal. His proposed trade is a bit far-fetched but it's an interesting insight into the perspective of the other team.

Hawks continue their salary dumping - trade Versteeg

Kris Versteeg and Bill Sweatt to Toronto in exchange for Viktor Stalberg, Chris DiDomenico and Phillippe Paradis.

Report: NY Rangers not close on Marc Staal deal

"I wouldn't say it's a wide gap, I'd say it's more of a chasm," Sather said. I'm not sure what will happen, but Sather mentioned resolutely holding his RFA even until after the season began. We may see an offer sheet come their way before then. Either way, the signing process might be creating some stress in our rival's ranks.

Inquirer reports Stevens could be heading to LA

John Stevens could be taking up an assistant coach role with LA, who also have Ron Hextall, Dean Lombardi and Terry Murray in their front office along with some former Flyers in their team.

Flyers fans a classless act - Chicago Now

From chanting about Detroit, to talking about Pronger, to complaining about classlessness...Chicago's celebrations aren't making many friends. This guy not only criticizes Philly fans for their lack of respect for Bettman and the Stanley Cup champs, but also for their lack of acknowledgement of their own team. Oh, apart from the moving Lets Go Flyers chant at the handshake line. But whatever...
