FLYERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Flyers All-Draft Team

With the bye week in full swing for the Philadelphia Flyers, I figured now would be a good time to try a fun exercise — putting together a team of only Philadelphia Flyers draft picks. Besides entertainment, this will also give a look at how the team has done in the draft over the last 10 to 15 years. I’ve set no parameters for draft years and the only caveats for the players...

Make-Or-Break Month Looming for Flyers

Back in mid-December, the Philadelphia Flyers were one of the hottest teams in the NHL. They’ve cooled off significantly since then, having dropped eight of their last 10 games, and now sit amid a jumbled mess of Eastern Conference teams vying for wildcard playoff spots. With just under three months to go in the regular season, there is certainly time for Philly to turn things...

Is Coaching Grounding the Flyers?

Flash back to a month ago and things were clicking on all cylinders for the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers had just won their tenth straight game, they were scoring goals at a tremendous clip, Steve Mason was playing stellar hockey and the team sat fifth in the NHL. Those days seem long gone for the fans and players who wear the orange and black. Since that winning streak, the Flyers...

Eleven losses in 14 games have erased the positive vibes and good feelings from their recent 10-game winning streak. Things have gone sideways for the Flyers over the past month, and general manager Ron Hextall said ''the negative energy...

It’s Time to Give Steve Mason a Break

In the literal and figurative sense, it is time for the Philadelphia Flyers to give Steve Mason a break. Judging by Mason’s four goals allowed on 24 shots, it is time for the Philadelphia Flyers’ goalkeeper to sit some games out. He needs mental and physical rest before he can be an effective goalie again. […] Philadelphia Flyers: It’s Time to Give Steve Mason a Break - Section...

The Flyers Have Had the Worst Luck in the Stanley Cup

The year was 1967. The NHL had its Original Six and a slew of other teams had come in gone with little-to-no success. California would be getting two squads (Golden Seals and Kings). Minnesota would get the North Stars. St. Louis would get the Blues. And, Pennsylvania would get the Pittsburgh Penguins along with the Philadelphia Flyers. It didn’t take long for the Philadelphia...

Eric Lindros Changed Philadelphia Hockey Forever

I debated for a long time about how to write this piece. As a journalist you never want to include yourself in the article. And ideally, you’d like it to be free of bias (looking at you, Breitbart). After mulling it over, I decided the only fair way to produce this piece was to write it with the same joyful enthusiasm I felt 18 years ago. As a fan of hockey. As a fan of the Philadelphia...

Flyers GM asked Eric Lindros to come out of retirement in 2012

Eric Lindros’ storied career was cut down by injuries, but if former Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had his way, Lindros wouldn’t have exited the league so soon. After spending nearly a decade and a half in the NHL, Lindros retired in 2006-2007 at the age of 34. The former first overall pick was plagued with concussion injuries, so the early retirement didn’t...

WATCH: Claude Giroux makes Jaroslav Halak look silly in the shootout

Jaroslav Halak is reportedly on the trading block following comments from his agent, but his trade value may have taken a small step back when teams see how badly he was undressed by Claude Giroux in the shootout. At first, it looked like Halak had Giroux figured out, but soon it became clear Halak was completely bested. That’s just a filthy move.
