Re-Thinking the Standings / "The Teams Will Now Play for the Extra Point"

Disclaimer: I've been thinking about this for a while.  Even though the Flyers are somehow 2-1 in shootouts this year, I still like this idea enough to present it to you all. Back in the...


Plus ca change / Rome wasn't built in a day...

Now that the Flyers are five games into the new season with a six-day break coming up, let's take a look at what's been happening.The Flyers are 3-1-1 so far, for 7 out of a possible 10 points. ...


"Phold of '64" has already been used...

... so sadly, we might need to get ready to come up with a new moniker for this year's possible disaster.  This would technically be worse, since we were up 7 games with 10 to go instead of 6.5.5...


One More Change May Be Necessary...

I think the Flyers have the talent to go far this year.  I really do.  I can't wait for October 2nd, when all the kinks have (hopefully) been worked out and the boys hit the ice for real.  With M...

I've tried to tell them that this is a good thing, and explained that I watched a lot of Bertuzzi last year, but no one is listening to me. I can only imagine that firsthand knowledge of Bertuzzi's game would help to calm some of us down. Thanks!


Martin Biron sez: "If you CAN beat them...

Join them anyway."  Apparently one ex-Flyer goalie (Scott Munroe) is not enough for the Islanders.  I guess they have three now, if you count Garth Snow. I think Bruce Boudreau said last year that...


"I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

(DISCLAIMER: I love the Flyers.  My earliest memory from my life is my father yelling at them on TV.  I have been going to games since the early 1980s, and I will always go as long as I live in...
