Found October 27, 2013 on Fightin For Philly:
Over their forty-six year history the Philadelphia Flyers have won two Stanley Cups and have displayed an immense amount of talent at all positions. We have seen greatness and we are awaiting the next great one. Here is my Flyers All-Star team.   CENTER: Bobby Clarke- The scrawny diabetic kid who shaved with a Kleenex from Flin Flon, Manitoba was a ferocious and relentless player who never gave up. He would play dirty and play well, and it earned him a strong argument for best Flyer ever.   WING: Tim Kerr- Kerr’s dynamic play, which was balanced out by his utter toughness and undeniable skill cascaded him into one of the top two wingers in Flyers history.   WING: Bill Barber- Bill Barber fit nicely into the Broad Street Bullies scheme the Flyers and Ed Snider were making happen in Philadelphia. He was one third of the LCB line, which also showcased rifle-man Reggie Leach.   DEFENSE: Mark Howe- Mark Howe was a fearless skater who could stop you like no other defender. In my opinion, and probably most of the fans, he is the greatest Flyers defenseman ever.   DEFENSE: Eric Desjardins- Trust me, I tried to think of every way possible to sneak Chris Pronger onto this list. If I couldn’t fit my favorite player ahead of someone, you know he is good. Desjardins was more than good, he was supernatural.   GOALTENDER: Bernie Parent: Is there really an argument for someone else. Bernie was undoubtedly the greatest Flyers goaltender to ever live. Hextall came close and Lindbergh could’ve had an argument but Parent takes the cake for his never-quitting will and his desirable talent. The Flyers won their two cups with a lot of help from number one. By Tom Quarry

Max Talbot Blogs About Injury in French, Here’s the Translated Version

After a gruesome injury in the Flyers’ 2-1 win over the Rangers last Thursday, Max Talbot skated off the ice while Flyers fans held their breath. However, it seems he was lucky — or just very good at instincually protecting himself. As Talbot explains, he shockingly did not  suffer a concussion, and only missed time to recover from a messed up nose and some muscle aches. You...

See: Awesome Stone Cold Steve Mason Photoshop

Credit for this one goes out to Fake Peter Laviolette on Twitter. Fake Lavy considered stopping the use of that account after real Laviolette was fired, but we’re all thankful he’s kept it going. The Flyers’ Steve Mason has been nothing short of spectacular this year. He’s easily been Philaelphia’s best player, and it shows in his 2.17 goals against average and .930 save...

Divine Intervention May Be the Cause of the Flyers’ Recent Wins

As I reported last week, Flyers owner Ed Snider was in Rome during the Flyers’ 7 day break. Above you can see Snider and his wife meeting with the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis. Perhaps Pope Francis put in a word for the Flyers with the big man upstairs, because since that meeting the Flyers have won both of their games — including 5 goals in Saturday night’s...

See: Lecavalier Celebrates 7th Career Hat Trick

Vincent Lecavalier is the Flyers’ best offensive player right now. Coming into the game, the Flyers’ leading goal scorer was Tye McGinn — who isn’t even on their roster anymore after being sent down to the Phantoms. Now, after Vinny’s 3-goal contest, he leads the team with 4. Lecavalier is tied with Brayden Schenn for the team lead, with 6 points. After assisting on 2 of...

Hartnell feels 'pretty good,' praises McGinn

Four games missed with an apparent rib cage injury seemed like an eternity to Scott Hartnell. “I hate missing games, it’s not fun,” the left wing, who is expected back in the lineup Saturday against the Islanders in Uniondale, N.Y., said. “It’s frustrating to watch.” The Flyers lost three of those games. Hartnell took full practice with projected linemates Brayden...

Putting On The Foil with @jsaquella: This And That: Rinaldo, Giroux and Mason

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) The Fourth Line I really dislike the 4th line when the Flyers dress both Jay...

Lecavalier hat trick lifts Flyers over Islanders

Thomas Hickey hooked him like a fish in Long Island sound. Vinny Lecavalier went down hard on the ice -- without a call from the official. “After I fell down, I didn’t see, but I got back up and G (Claude Giroux) made a great play back onto my stick,” Lecavalier said, describing what became his hat-trick goal that iced a 5-2 rout of the Isles at Nassau Coliseum. Giroux...

Lecavalier hat trick spurs Flyers' win over Isles

Vinny Lecavalier scored three goals in Philadelphia's biggest offensive outburst of the season, and Steve Mason made 26 saves to lift the Flyers to a 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday night. The Flyers (3-7) hadn't scored more than two goals in any of their first nine games. One more and they would have become the first NHL team to have a season-opening...

Lack of power-play success hampering Flyers

If you’re still searching for a tangible reason why the Flyers' record is so bloody awful this season, look no further than their power play. Heading into the final weekend of October, they were nestled into 29th place in the NHL in power-play percentage (8.1 percent). They are a living example of the movie, “The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight.” Which is why they...

Flyers-Islanders Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers have yet to score three goals in a game this season. The New York Islanders scored three goals in less than six minutes Friday night. The Flyers will try to close a sizable production gap between the two teams Saturday night in New York and avoid losing eight of their first 10 games in regulation for the first time in franchise history. Scoring 1.44 goals...

Flight Plan: Taking Off

The Philadelphia Flyers have now won two games in a row, both against divisional rivals in the New York Rangers and New York Islanders, and have finally lit the lamp more than two times in one game.
