In what sadly qualifies as an NHL-related “highlight video” in this tragic wasteland that features a dearth of actual hockey videos due to the lockout, here’s Philadelphia Flyers center Max Talbot, wearing a black hoodie and armed with a bow and a quiver of arrows, shooting a puck out of the air with a bow [...]

As reported today by several Flyers beat writers, Danny Briere and Claude Giroux will be heading overseas. Comcast Sportsnet Tim Panaccio reported that the Flyers stars will be playing in Berlin. It sounds like they wil be playing for Eisbären Berlin.
With the lockout, Briere and Giroux now make it 7 total players who are playing overseas.
Later this afternoon, the NHL is...
Max Talbot has been a very busy man during the NHL lockout. The Philadelphia forward founded the Quebec Caravan League along with fellow province native Bruno Gervais, but apparently the work stoppage has left Talbot, for lack of a better word, bored. Recently a youtube video surfaced that featured Talbot shooting a hockey puck out of thin air, with a bow and arrow. Apparently the...
While the lockout is still going strong, a lot of players have opted to go play in different leagues around the world. Some are lucky enough to have 2-way contracts with NHL teams and their minor league affiliates. Those Flyers that do not have the option to go and play with the Adirondack Phantoms have gone and signed with teams in the KHL, DEL, and SEL, along with some others....
It has been reported that Danny Briere and Claude Giroux have signed with Eisbaren Berlin out of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) in Germany. It has not been confirmed yet on when they will arrive to play in Berlin.

I lost a lengthy (and 80 percent completed) blog this morning to a computer freeze-up, so I will have to rewrite it from scratch. This will serve as a placeholder in the interim. The blog should be finished around 11 AM and will cover:
* The Phantoms' 5-3 exhibition opener loss to Albany yesterday
* An update on Claude Giroux
* An update on Nicklas Grossmann
* Matt Read...
Here's the latest on the status of Claude Giroux during the lockout.
* Sport Express in Russia has reported that Avangard Omsk is out of the running for Giroux at this point after talks stalled. The team has instead signed Winnipeg Jets captain Andrew Ladd.
* Czech publication iSport reported that, with Avangard seemingly out of the picture now, a reunion of Giroux and...
A lot of us, myself included, assumed Danny Briere would go back to the Swiss League during the lockout.
Turns out, he and Claude Giroux are headed the Germany to play for EisbÃ¤ren Berlin in the Deutsche Eishiockey Liga (DEL).
Briere texted CSNPhilly.com this morning with the news.
âNo other comment,â Briere said.
Briere and Giroux h ad been holding out...
