Found January 10, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
via Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News, On Wednesday, the hot rumor was Luongo to . . . the Flyers? It all started with a report from former player-turned-analyst Enrico Ciccone, who tweeted that the Flyers have interest in Luongo. His report was seconded by TSN analyst James Duthie, who is believed to be a close friend of Luongo. When contacted, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren quickly shot down the rumors. "That made me chuckle," Holmgren told the Daily News. "It's safe to say those rumors aren't true. They have no basis or merit." On many levels, the Flyers trading for another goaltender doesn't seem to make sense. Though he has a better track record, Luongo, 33, is 1 year older than Ilya Bryzgalov, and has more years (10) and money remaining on his contract ($47 million). Bryzgalov is due $41 million over the next eight seasons. Even if the Flyers were to buy out Bryzgalov next summer with the CBA's new...

Why Ilya Bryzgalov Will Bounce Back in 2013

3.. 2.. 1.. Take off. The Flyers' season doesn't begin for another week and a half, but goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is already making headlines in the Philadelphia media with his quotes. “He's like from the movie Cast Away. We need to buy some ball for him so he has best buddy Wilson," said Bryzgalov when asked about forward Scott Hartnell's hairstyle.  It was...

Bryzgalov a likely candidate for Flyers buyout

Today, I can officially lift my self-imposed no NHL embargo because the NHL and the NHLPA finally came to their senses (with the help of federal mediator Scot Beckenbaugh). It sure feels good, and now the speculation can begin. Probably the most intriguing part of this new Collective Bargaining Agreement, aside from the length (10 years with an opt out at 8) is the addition of two...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Quick Hits on Bryz, Fedotenko, McGinn and Walker

Here are some Flyers quick hits for your Wednesday morning. I will be leaving shortly to attend the NHL's press conference in New York later today, along with Eklund and HockeyBuzz's Capt. EO. * When Ilya Bryzgalov left CSKA Moscow ahead of the settlement of the NHL lockout, the official cover reason issued by the team was that Bryzgalov had an upper-body injury for which...

Fedotenko: "I Want to Win Another Cup. I Want to Experience That Again"

With the NHL lockout coming to an end, most of the league's players that played overseas have made their way back home to prepare for the start of training camp next week. For Ruslan Fedotenko, it was sort of a dual homecoming when he joined his Flyers' teammates on the ice at practice for the first time in a decade. "I'm excited to be a part of this organization...

Ilya Bryzgalov is back and as interesting as ever

The Philadelphia Flyers goaltender never disappoints. He's back from Russia and ready to keep the media entertained. Thank goodness the NHL lockout ended!

Philadelphia Flyers interested in Roberto Luongo

The Roberto Luongo trade rumours are in full force. Previously I’ve looked at the possibility of Luongo heading to Toronto, Edmonton, Florida and Chicago. Until today, I have not thought about the possibility of Luongo in the orange and black of the Philadelphia Flyers. The Luongo to Philadelphia rumour heated up today after TSN’s James Duthie mentioned Philly’s interest on...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Projected Line Combinations; Phantoms and Titans

Barring additional injuries or roster moves, the Flyers opening-night lineup is likely to look something like this when the team opens its schedule a week from tomorrow against the Pittsburgh Penguins. 1st forward line: Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jakub Voracek Although Jaromir Jagr spent most of last season on the top line, Voracek was on the unit for much of the playoff...

Flyers Odds and Ends – Showdown with Pens, Briere’s wrist, G for Captain?

Claude Giroux was among 5 Philadelphia Flyers who needed surgery to repair various ailments. Giroux had both of his wrists operated on. The Philadelphia Flyers will open camp this weekend, months after they were supposed to before a lockout almost caused a lost season. Camp will be short, probably beginning Sunday and ending Thursday or Friday. There will be no preseason games on...

Tim Panaccio: On Briere, Bryz, & G-Man

Two days since a handful of Flyers have trickled into pre-camp, we've had a bundle of news. The bad: Danny Briere will probably miss the season opener, by his own admission, because of a badly sprained wrist. He might even miss a week. Funny thing is, GM Paul Holmgren seemed more worried about Briere than Andrej Meszaros and anyone who has been around Achilles injuries...
