My big board for the Philadelphia Flyers during the 2013 NHL Draft at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
I’m going to assume this: 1. Nathan MacKinnon, Colorado; 2. Seth Jones, Florida; 3. Jonathan Drouin, Tampa Bay; 4. Aleksander Barkov, Nashville.
In my opinion, here’s the order of players the Flyers should select, no matter where...
The Rangers have acquired defenseman Danny Syvret from the Philadelphia Flyers for forward Kris Newbury.
The 28-year-old Syvret had six goals and 34 assists in 76 games last season with Adirondack of the AHL. He led the Phantoms with 34 assists, was second in points, and was third with five power-play goals. His 194 shots on goal were tops on the team.

After much talk of the Philadelphia Flyers moving up during the 2013 NHL Draft, the team decided to stay put and use the 11th overall pick.
With the Dallas Stars likely stealing left winger Valeri Nichushkin from the Flyers, GM Paul Holmgren announced that the club would select defenseman Samuel Morin of Rimouski Oceanic in...

Contrary to typical Philadelphia Flyers trends at the draft, they’ve decided to stock up on young defenseman.

The Philadelphia Flyers want to add a goaltender, but general manager Paul Holmgren learned from his Ilya Bryzgalov disaster.He doesn’t want to place a long-term on a netminder until he sees how that player fits into the Flyers system and handles the Philadelphia spotlight.Holmgren is evaluating free agents willing to sign short-term deals and trade targets with a year left on...
NEWARK (June 30, 2013) – The 2014 NHL Draft will be held over two days, Friday June 27, and Saturday, June 28, it was announced today by the NHL and the Philadelphia Flyers, the host Club of next year’s NHL Draft.

Teams with salary cap issues could buy out two players this week.That gave teams a chance to clean up their books -- and it gave teams shopping for free agent help more options come July 5.
The Philadelphia Flyers wasted no time dumping forward Daniel Briere and goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. Briere is just a supplemental scorer at this stage of his career, but his phone is ringing off...

TSN is reporting that Magnus Paajarvi’s name has been linked to Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn, but the Flyers would prefer “a better forward” out of the Oilers system. Some, including myself, may see the potential trade of Braydon Coburn as puzzling, seeing as defense is one of the areas Philly needs to improve on, but Coburn could help net the team a...

I will be in Newark, NJ today to cover the 2013 NHL Draft for HockeyBuzz along with Julie Robenhymer. Throughout the day, I will post news and commentary on this blog space whenever the Flyers make a Draft selection or a trade.
The Flyers have been in the middle of a host of trade rumors -- particularly Braydon Coburn to Edmonton and as well as several goalie...
Flyers Acquire Newbury
The Flyers and New York Rangers made a minor trade yesterday. Philadelphia sent veteran AHL defenseman Danny Syvret to the New York organization in exchange for veteran forward Kris Newbury.
A power forward at the AHL level, where he has been a decent scorer as well as a player who drops the gloves, the 31-year-old Newbury's lone NHL role is as a...

The Philadelphia Flyers had four picks in the last five rounds of the draft, and made some rather off the board selections.
With the 72nd overall pick, Philadelphia selected Tyrell Goulbourne of the Kelwona Rockets in the WHL. The 5’11″, 195 lbs. center played in 64 games for the Rockets, and had 27 points. Goulbourne is known for...
from Frank Seravalli of hte Phiadelphia Daily News,
There's a very good chance Ray Emery, who many believe is the Flyers' No. 1 choice to work in tandem with Steve Mason next season, will soon re-sign with the Cup-champion Blackhawks to avoid hitting the market.
Emery's agent, J.P. Barry, met with the Blackhawks on Sunday night after the draft to discuss Emery...
