First in catching up from yesterday, I created a quick 3-question poll on Jeff Skinner to go with the blog, but life got in the way and I did not get it up in time to include in the blog. I will post results here in the next couple days. You can find that here:

I will probably write another of these and address...
We are now at the point of the offseason where the biggest news related to former Philadelphia Flyers has reached Andreas Nodl signing in Switzerland and Ryan Potulny being released from a KHL squad. The list of players who were once linked to the Orange and Black and endured transactions this week is still rather long, but Nodl and Potulny are the only two who actually played a...
