A guy who has quickly grown on me as one of my favorite Flyers since the beginning of the year is Jakub Voracek.  My man crush has gotten to be unreasonable at times for some of my friends.  I am a little sour that Homer was proactive in his signings of Coburn (which looks like an absolute steal at 4 years for 18 million) and van Riemsdyk (which looks risky outside of his playoff performance from yesteryear), while forgetting about Voracek, leaving him to prove his worth all year after receiving a one year contract this past offseason.  I understand loyalty and prior knowledge (Voracek was labelled as lackadaisical when with Columbus) is a huge driver in those dealings; but after the jump, I will get into the fact why I have such a huge fixation for the guy and why Homer is kicking himself for not jumping on the bandwagon sooner… Continue reading "Jake’s Make or Break Season"

Idiot Flyers fan’s customized Wayne Simmonds jersey: ‘The Black Guy’ (pic)

Hoo boy. Way to class it up there, guy. Yeesh. A fitting punishment for this dolt’s terribly insensitive and inappropriate customized jersey would be to allow Wayne Simmonds do what the Philadelphia Flyers forward did to Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Eric Brewer earlier this season, although I imagine Simmonds would likely do what I’m doing [...]

Holmgren Deserves Credit For The Flyers Makeover

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Holmgren did not get a nod for the newly created GM of the Year Award, but he should have. In fact, it’s mind boggling that he did not, given the moves he has made and the bright future he has charted for the Philadelphia Flyers. Not that he has given it a moment’s thought. Holmgren is, instead, focused on the pursuit of the trophy that has eluded...

Bryz Not To Blame for Flyers Poor Play in Game 2

The Philadelphia Flyers were out hustled in their 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. They were out shot, out shone and out hustled. Aside from the first 10-15 minutes of the game, the Flyers were a disaster. Some fans have turned to Ilya Bryzgalov as the scapegoat for the loss. My first question is what game were these people watching? If not for Ilya Bryzgalov, the...

Devils Beat Flyers 4-1, Even Series at One

Well Philly fans, the puck is in your rink, what needs to be done for the Flyers to rebound from this game? The Flyers looked great at the start of the game, then they could not generate any offense at all. 2 shots in the 2nd period and 9 in the 3rd for a total of 20 for the game just won’t cut it. New Jersey fans, I am sure you are satisfied with the way the game played-out tonight.

Flyers Fail to Show Up, Devils Tie Series Up

Casual, Jam-Less Flyers Poop The Bed in Game 3 Overtime Loss

Where was the timeout tonight Pete?   I don’t know about you but I’m tired of people saying, “we’re still the better team”, or “we’ll still win the series”. People are saying this even after this overtime loss the the Devils tonight. This is the exact same attitude that has the Flyers in this position to begin with. I do agree, that overall, the Flyers are the better...
