The Hockey Guys:
By Dustin Leed (@D_LEED)
I recently say down with (fake) Tim Panaccio to discuss how the season has been going, the offseason moves, the two Pronger’s and his love for exotic refreshment.
The satire Q&A can be read below:
Flyers are looking like a playoff team early on this season, what have you seen?
FTP: The playoffs are an intangible thing, Dustin. I don’t think any team looks like a playoff team, ever. Teams can only hope to look like teams that will eventually become playoff-bound. Do the Flyers look like that type of team, right now? That’s really hard to say. Only probably a psychic could reveal those answers.
What was your reaction to the major shake-up this offseason when the team traded Mike Richards and Jeff Carter?
FTP: Ol’ Glass Foot’s slew foot dance to Dayton, OHIO was necessary. He was a lazy man, a man who scored 73 goals in one season and then appeared to get sucked into the black hole of Jameson, porn stars and Dave & Busters.
As for Captain Silence, I w...

The Blue Jackets are without center Jeff Carter, who is sidelined because of a stress fracture in his right foot.
Admit it. You are a little put out by the news that one of your favourite former Philly Flyers will be in street clothes in Buffalo tonight.
Jeff Carter will not play tonight. Its his fifth consecutive game lost due to the fractured bone in his right foot.
Jax head coach, Scott Arniel, likes what he saw from his forwards on Tuesday night. The forwards got pucks deep and made...
Despite trading Jeff Carter and former captain Mike Richards in the offseason to clear space for goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov's massive contract, the Philadelphia Flyers are again among the NHL leaders in scoring.
Bryzgalov, though, doesn't feel like he's giving his new club much of a return in its investment.
Losers of four of five, the Flyers will try to win their sixth...
4-2 loss in Buffalo comes down to special teams. While the hapless Blue Jackets went a horrid (even for them) 0 of 6, the Sabres went 2 for 3. Conveniently, the margin of victory. Columbus is an unworldly 10% with the man advantage on the season. Despite peppering Ryan Miller's stand-in for 43 shots, the team just cannot score on consistent basis. Jeff Carter is still out. What a mess.
Sometimes the NHL schedule does you a favor, like Saturday when the Hawks get an immediate chance to make amends for wasting our and their time the night before in Carolina. And they get to do it against the league's worst team at home.
You can't ask for a curveball that's hanging more than this.
Columbus has had a woeful start to the season. They're 1-8-1. They...
