Fans have been asking for months - will Jaromir Jagr play in 2012-13? If so, which club will he skate for? These questions were all put on the back burner while the Philadelphia Flyers competed in the Stanley Cup playoffs. However, after a disappointing second round exit the questions about Jagr's future have once again risen to the surface. Read more...

Holmgren wants Bryzgalov to focus next season

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren calls his team's season ''decent.'' That's not good enough in Philadelphia. The Flyers cleaned out their lockers on Thursday and said their farewells for the summer. They were eliminated by New Jersey in a five-game series in the Eastern Conference semifinals that ended on Tuesday. Holmgren says he wants to see improvement...

Report: Flyers Bryzgalov critical of Philly fans

Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov reportedly said many of the city's hockey fans forget that players "are not robots, living people." Bryzgalov, whose team was eliminated by the New Jersey Devils this week, criticized the Philadelphia fans in a Russian-language interview with SovSport. "What I lived through this season I wouldn't wish to an enemy...

Flyers and Bryzgalov Have No Choice But To Make it Work

Despite a bumpy first year, Flyers' goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov has 8 years remaining on his contract and is still due a boatload of money. Flyers fans were disappointed by the play of their new goaltender this year.  Apparently, so was Flyers’ General Manager Paul Holmgren. “His job is to stop pucks and help us win games. It’s no Comedy Central.” Holmgren said earlier...

"But who make mistakes in this world" -Ilya Bryzgalov

With the Flyers season ended early and the players now coping with the thought of not playing, some are opening up to the media and talking about the past season.  The first and arguably most interesting  comments though, come from none other than goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.  In an interview done with SovSports, Bryzgalov opened up and spoke his mind to the reporter.   When asked...

Flyers' goalie Ilya Bryzgalov longs for the days of HC Spartak Moscow, brotherly love

Flyers' goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was 33-16 with a 2.48 GAA in the regular season for the Philadelphia club. The playoffs were a different, and much shorter, animal: 5-6, 3.46 -- So Ilya took to therapy... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

BREAKING: Matt Carle and Philadelphia Flyers, Working to Reach Deal

By Dustin Leed (@D_LEED) Some breaking new here this afternoon. I chatted with Flyers defenseman Matt Carle and his agent Kurt Overhardt regarding Carle’s contract negotiations with the Philadelphia Flyers. “There’s no question I want to be here, the past four years have been great and I really feel like Philly has become a second home for my family and me,” Matt Carle said...

Holmgren wants Bryzgalov to look forward

Ilya Bryzgalov had plenty of time this season to babble on about bears, the universe, the woods, and other arcane bits of knowledge. He kept quiet on Thursday. Staying out of the locker room on the day Philadelphia packed up and headed home might be the first sign the Flyers' quirky goalie learned a lesson that he's paid $51 million to win games and not play the room like...

Flyers' Nickelback Experience Comes Back to Bite Them Against Devils (Caption Contest)

The Flyers may have knocked off the Penguins in the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs, but some hardcore partying with Nickelback after the first-round win may have caught up with them against the Devils, according to #NESNcaption contest winners. Patrick Lyons ‎"I'm gonna have to let you go" Scott Costa Soooo.........ever thought about being a goalie? Rich Blanchette Call...

Farewell to the Flyers

Although the Eastern Conference Finals match-up hasn’t been set yet, it’s time to say goodbye (belatedly) to the Philadelphia Flyers, who proved that match-ups mean everything. Against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Flyers scored a league-high 30 goals and averaged 27.5 shots per game. But, in five games against the Devils, they scored just 11 goals, and after getting 36 shots...

How Did Holmgren Do?

The team that made the biggest wholesale changes last summer was probably the Philadelphia Flyers.  They traded Mike Richards and Jeff Carter in order to make salary cap room to acquire Ilya Bryzgalov, who was supposed to solve their goaltending problems.  Initially, I didn’t think the moves were very smart.  Now that the season has ended for the Flyers, we can better assess...

Blame it all on Bryzgalov?

Amidst discussion of Jaromir Jagr’s future and the Flyers’ baffling team-wide performances against the New Jersey Devils, much of the criticism regarding the Flyers’ individual shortcomings involves pointed and harsh criticism of Ilya Bryzgalov’s play (though the Devils are earning full marks for taking out Philly as well). Given so many suggestions over the last 12 or...

Devils-Flyers Recap

One day after the Devils eliminated Philadelphia from the playoffs in convincing fashion, winning the series 4-1, much is being made of Philadelphia's apparent lack of effort in the series and subsequent elimination. After a grueling and entertaining first round victory over in-state rival, and presumptive Stanley Cup favorite Pittsburgh, a series that featured little defense...
