It was a foregone conclusion that Ian Laperriere would announce his retirement after the 2011-12 season, but there is still a little bit of sadness that his career had to end with two seasons on injured reserve as a result of post-concussion issues that prevented him from returning to the ice for the Flyers.
The retirement paperwork will be filed as soon as the off-season officially begins. He...

Just like that -- once again -- Jaromir Jagr's future appears to include the Philadelphia Flyers. According to CSNPhilly.com's Tim Panaccio, Jagr reportedly wants to re-sign with the Flyers after all. And soon. Jagr's agent, Petr Svoboda, informed CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday of his client's feelings, and the two sides are working to hammer out another one-year deal...
Over the course of this past season, several people asked me if I thought the Flyers would still have interest in drafting Czech forward Tomas Hyka in the 2012 NHL Draft. I don't see why not. The right winger had a fine year in the QMJHL this season.

Already deep, and young, now with three building blocks down the middle in Claude Giroux, Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier, Holmgren turns...
Earlier this week, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren reiterated his confidence that the club will be able to re-sign impending unrestricted free agent Matt Carle on July 1. It appears as if the basic framework for a deal has already been agreed upon, and it is the tagging space issue that prevents the club from re-signing Carle (or Jaromir Jagr) until the new temporary $70.3 million...
Some Quick Hits for you on this Sunday before heading back to LA. (I really want the frequent flyer miles of the Stanley Cup these days)
On Brad Boyes:
He wasn't a big hit in Buffalo, but at a lower price (and playing in his normal position) he has sparked interest. The Hurricanes are the latest team to enter the fray (along with Washington , Colorado and the NY Rangers...
