Steve Mason’s new goalie mask will be great

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason has never been afraid to try out a new helmet design. As a matter of fact, his most recent redesign is already his second since being traded to Philadelphia in April. Mason’s first helmet with the Flyers featured a lot of stitches, a shredded Flyers logo, a zombie from the Walking Dead, and his English Bulldog named George. What could possibly...

Columbus Blue Jackets- can it be 2009 again?

When people think of the Columbus Blue Jackets, they think of mostly negative things. Words such as doormat, punching bag, and bottom feeders are usually what are associated with the Jackets, and for the majority of their history, these words fit right in. The Jackets’ past has been filled with front office missteps (looking right at you Doug Maclean) and poor player performances...

Steve Mason’s Goalie Mask to Feature Zombie Versions of Benjamin Franklin, George Washington (Video)

Poll: What has you most excited about the 2013-2014 Flyers?

It’s been a nice, safe offseason in Philadelphia Flyer land; one that deserves some good marks for General Manager Paul Holmgren. He jettisoned the bloated contracts of Danny Briere and Ilya Brzgalov via their compliance buyouts. He traded for and then signed mobile defenseman Mark Streit (in probably the only questionable move of the offseason; at least from a contract perspective...

Laperriere “un homme de fer” after Sunday event in Quebec

You might have called Ian Laperriere a warrior, or tough as nails during an 18-year NHL career which concluded three years ago in Philadelphia. After Sunday, add “iron man” to those honorifics. The 39-year-old Laperriere completed the Ironman Mont-Tremblant in his native Quebec, ranking 124th among his division, men aged 35-to-39. He finished the swim portion of the race, a 3...
