Via Pro Hockey Talk’s Joe Yerdon, Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia’s Tim Panaccio believes that Jaromir Jagr will play for the Philadelphia Flyers beyond this season: Jagr said this week he is thrilled to be playing on a team with younger players he can mentor. He says it’s given him a valuable role in his later years – the ability to pass on advice. So the obvious question we had for him was whether it’s sparked something inside of him to perhaps ask the Flyers for a contract extension. “It’s too early to tell,” Jagr replied. “I want to wait for the whole season and playoffs. I just don’t want to be somewhere where I can’t help the team, just sit around. It’s not me. I want to be a big part of the team to help the team, either way. It’s not about points, it’s about the whole team. Could we make the playoffs? How we’ll do in the playoffs. That’s the hockey you want to play – the playoffs. That is what I missed the most.

The irony behind the Flyers early-season success

Getty Images BY: DUSTIN POLLACK Thursday, June 23rd 2011. In just one day, the Philadelphia Flyers changed the entire make up of their franchise. Out was captain Mike Richards and leading-scorer Jeff Carter and in was what the Flyers had seemingly needed for years, a proven goaltender. Ilya Bryzgalov came to Philadelphia with a great track record and was supposedly the one who...

Phillies take note: Flyers’ youth being served in NHL resurgence

I have to give credit to the Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Paul Holmgren. A year after making the Stanley Cup finals, they lost in the second round to the Boston Bruins, the eventual Stanley Cup champion. (Hey, the championship, all of them, except the Sixers, come through Philly). Did Holmgren stand pat? Nope. He traded away not-so-old veterans Jeff Carter and...

Tempers Flare As Rangers Beat Flyers 2-0

The always physical matchup definitely started off with a bang. Four seconds into the game, Zac Rinaldo and Brandon Prust dropped the gloves. Avery and Simmonds had words as well, which is not surprising due to their previous incident. Sergei Bobrovsky started his second straight game, a clear message from the coaching staff to Bryzgalov to get his act together. Full video highlight...

Eklund: The Buzz: Heated Rivalries and Hated Rivals

It hardly seems possible that the season is already past the quarter point and longtime archrivals -- and upcoming Winter Classic opponents -- Philadelphia and New York are playing today for the first time in the regular season. The Flyers also have yet to play the Penguins, so there will be lots of wars to come over the rest of the season. As I write this, the first period at...
