The Flyers 2013-14 roster finally has been set, just minutes before the 5:00 PM deadline set by the NHL.

The Philadelphia Flyers signed veteran defenseman Hal Gill to a one-year deal the team announced Tuesday. Gill's contract is worth $700000 according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Gill may be a step slower but the mammoth defenseman brings a lot of experience at an extremely reasonable cost for the cap-crunched Flyers.
An invitee on a PTO to Flyers' camp Gill showed he still...
Claude Giroux and the Flyers face Phil Kessel and the Leafs in their season opener on Wednesday night.
It is nearly time to drop the puck on the 2013-14 NHL
season. The Flyers return with plenty of new faces and a familiar core as well.
The Flyers had to battle through a tumultuous preseason that
saw them go 1-5-1. That included a win and loss to the first opponent of the
The Philadelphia Flyers waived Adam Hall on Saturday and he cleared waivers on Sunday. While he has yet to be sent to down to the Phantoms, you can’t help but wonder what is in store for the forward group. It’s entirely possible (probably even likely) that we see additional moves before the season begins, but I seriously scratch my head with this one. Any plan that potentially...
SHOULD FLYERS CARRY EIGHT DEFENSEMEN THIS SEASON?
The Philadelphia Flyers currently have the NHL's most expensive defense corps. Entering the 2013-14 season, the team's top seven defensemen -- Kimmo Timonen, Braydon Coburn, Luke Schenn, Mark Streit, Nicklas Grossmann, Andrej Meszaros and Erik Gustafsson -- eat up a combined 43 percent ($27.85 million) of the NHL maximum...
The Flyers have set their final 21-men roster for Opening Night. However, this will not be the exact roster the team will have on the ice come Wednesday night. The team had to have a roster set by 5:00 pm today, September 30.
Those not on the roster include: Adam Hall (forward) and Bruno Gervais (defenseman), who have both been loaned to the Flyers AHL afiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms...

Well, the trade we all thought was coming with the Flyers to help them shed a defenseman and get under the salary cap never materialized.
Instead the Flyers simply moved a couple players -Adam Hall and Bruno Gervais - to the Phantoms via waivers, then put Chris Pronger on LTIR to retrieve $4.9 million in cap space and get under the cap.

The Flyers are just under $1.25 million over the salary cap, and moves will be coming today for the club to have their roster in...
Per a post from the official Philadelphia Flyers Facebook page, the starting goaltender for tonight’s game will be Steve Mason. This year’s starting job will be awarded to the goaltender who wants it the most. Peter Laviolette is dangling the job to whoever will come and take it. The Flyers take on the Toronto Maple [...]
