Look for Vinny Lecavalier back in the Flyers lineup Thursday when their schedule resumes against the Rangers. Don't look for Scott Hartnell. He sounds as if he is still a week away and that is on target as part of his 2-4 week recovery. They skated Sunday for the first time at Skate Zone. Both were injured Oct. 11 against Phoenix. Lecavalier has a lower body injury that sounds like a gr...

Flyers' Lecavalier, Hartnell make strides

Vinny Lecavalier and Scott Hartnell injured forwards who would boost the offensively challenged Flyers lineup took a step toward returning when they skated and took shots Sunday at the team’s Voorhees practice facility. It was the first workout for the players since they were injured in a 2-1 loss to Phoenix on Oct. 10. Lecavalier who had a goal and two assists after the first...

Vincent Lecavalier is hopeful, Scott Hartnell doubtful for Thursday

Looking for their second win of the season, the Philadelphia Flyers have to wait til Thursday to see if they can get achieve it. According to CSNPhilly.com, that may be just enough time for Vincent Lecavalier to return against their nemesis, the New York Rangers, but teammate Scott Hartnell will remain week-to-week. The wait can be stressful, but it does give players time to heal...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Laughton is Too Advanced for OHL

Note: I am at the Flyers' practice at the Skate Zone today and will have a post-practice update with video later today. All line combos and D pairing today are the same as the last game, with Scott Hartnell, Vincent Lecavalier and Marc-Andre Bourdon joining as rehabbing players. Lecavalier and Hartnell are the only two dressed in gray (today's designated non-contact color...

Flyers Owner Ed Snider is in Rome While His Team Loses

Picture sent by Fightin For Philly reader Matt Hinkie Flyers owner Ed Snider has taken the Flyers’ week long break to vacation in Rome. This picture is of FFP reader Matt Hinkie’s father, taken with Snider in a Rome hotel. Snider’s wife — his 4th one, whom he married in February of this year — apologizes for the team’s losses. With a team that is 1-7, has a shaky head...

Future Hall Of Famer Chris Pronger Is Effectively Retired

I like to write career retrospectives when players that I think will make the Hockey Hall of Fame retire.  In today`s case, Chris Pronger isn`t actually officially retired but he is almost certain to never play another game in his career.  His general manager Paul Holmgren is on record saying that Pronger is very unlikely to ever play again.  Today I am deciding to treat him as...

Mason 'everything' for Flyers so far this season

The only bright spot on the Flyers right now is goaltender Steve Mason. In fact this is the first time in quite a while you could point to the Flyers and make the statement that while everything else might be up for grabs there is no issue in goal. Mason has a 2.37 goals-against average and .923 save percentage. He’s given the Flyers a chance in every game he’s played and deserves...

Flyers continue to operate near 50 contract limit

The Philadelphia Flyers currently sit at 52 contracts, four of which slide, which leaves them at 48 contracts towards the 50 contract limit. For the three or four people that may actually regularly read my articles, this topic may seem familiar. I wrote pretty much this exact same article back in July of 2012. Recently on Twitter, this topic came up in conversation among Josh Janet of...

Last week on Flyers Faithful…

Here are some of the highlights from the past week on Flyers Faithful:   Kevin Christmann took a look at Sean Couturier’s improved faceoffs through the season’s first six games.   Steve Jacot started a campaign to make “Whoomp! (There It Is)” the Flyers’ new goal song.   Mike Baumann had an excellent guest post on the issue of fighting in hockey.   Kim Pollock interviewed...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Giroux, Voracek, Trades

WHEN WILL GIROUX BREAK OUT OF EARLY SEASON DOLDRUMS? The Philadelphia Flyers would undoubtedly have a better record right now, perhaps even a .500 start through eight games, if they were scoring at even a modestly higher pace. No matter what other flaws there are to dissect, no team is going to win more than a game or two when it scores just 11 times in eight games. Here the...

What Type Of Team Are The Flyers?

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News, They aren't a particularly tough team to play against at the Wells Fargo Center with a 1-4-0 home record this season. They aren't exactly an exciting team to watch, as evidenced by the growing number of empty, burgundy seats at home games. The most interesting thing about this season so far is that the 2014 draft...

Putting On The Foil with @jsaquella: Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures!

Editors’ Note: Noted Philadelphia Flyers fan John Saquella is going beyond 140 characters. The man most of you probably know from social media as @jsaquella will bring you his wide-ranging opinion and commentary on the Orange and Black in his column Putting On The Foil. By John Saquella (@jsaquella) Getty Images What could be the most desperate thing the Flyers could do? Trade...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: A Week to Regroup

A Week to Regroup The Philadelphia Flyers wake up this morning with the fewest points in the NHL. They are off to the worst start (1-7-0) and have the fewest goals (11) through eight games in the history of the franchise. They've been outscored 12-2 in third periods, which is the time of game where the best teams typically shine and the worst clubs fade. That says it all...

Philly Fans Getting Angry

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Fans are angry - not just because the team isn't winning and isn't entertaining, but because of a lack of a 60-minute commitment. The Flyers disappeared for an entire period in a lot of games last season, and that head-scratching trend continued in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh. It's one thing to have a lackluster...
