Found November 29, 2011 on NHL Hot Stove:
By David Strehle NHL Hot Stove Managing Editor With the recent wave of injuries experienced by the Philadelphia Flyers, the rumors have begun that something will soon be on the horizon via the trade market. Photo credit: Jim MacIsaac / Getty Images In pre-salary cap days, there would be no issue whatsoever in going out and making a deal to get some much-needed help on the club’s ailing blueline.  Ed Snider always gave the go-ahead with a pre-approval – along with a blankk check - for whatever his general managers believed would improve the team’s chances of succeeding. But this is a much different climate and while Snider still has given his blessing to Paul Holmgren to do whatever is necessary to improve the Flyers, a trade at this point in time would be a knee-jerk reaction. No pun intended. Dr. Peter DeLuca will perform an arthroscopic procedure on Chris Pronger’s left knee today, to clean out and remove what Holmgren referred to ‘loose bodies’ from the defenseman’s knee in his ...

Carolina Claims Andreas Nodl From Flyers

A day after losing Chris Pronger to knee surgery, the Flyers have lost another player- this time to the Carolina Hurricanes. According to Tim Panaccio of Comcast Sports Net, the Hurricanes have claimed Nodl off of waivers. Nodl appeared in 12 games for the Flyers, recording only 1 assist and a +/- of -1.

Hurricanes claim RW Nodl; reassign Sutter

The Carolina Hurricanes have claimed right wing Andreas Nodl on waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers. The team also reassigned forward Brent Sutter to Charlotte of the AHL. The moves were announced prior to coach Kirk Mueller's debut with the Hurricanes on Tuesday. The 24-year-old Nodl has one assist in 12 games with the Flyers this season. He is expected to provide depth to...

Pronger Needs Surgery, Out a Month

The Flyers are going to need to continue winning without their captain on the ice for the next month or so. Defenseman Chris Pronger is set to have loose bodies removed from his left knee on Tuesday, the team announced Monday. “Obviously Chris has played a long time,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “This has been an issue probably for the last month or so for him that...

Flyers D Pronger out one month

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger will have surgery on his left knee today and will miss a month. It has been a tough season for Pronger, Philadelphia's captain, who also missed six games with an eye injury. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Peter DeLuca. "Any time a player has surgery, there's concern, whether he's an older player like Chris or a younger player.

Hurricanes claim Andreas Nodl

Jim Rutherford has been a busy man the last couple of days as he has now claimed 24-year old winger Andreas Nodl off waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers. At first, I didn't think much of this move because Nodl appeared to be nothing more than a depth forward and I assumed the 11 goals and 22 points he had last season was a product of playing on a line with Mike Richards. However...

Video: Adirondack Phantoms ‘Built This’ hilarious ode to 1980s

This promo video from the Adirondack Phantoms, the Philadelphia Flyers' AHL affiliate, needed three things to perfectly capture the 1980s MTV aesthetic it's going for: a cameo by Martha Quinn, a model/actress writhing on the hood of a Camaro and/or Thunderbird, and a prolonged sax solo … even if Starship's "We Built This City [On Rock and Roll]" didn't...
