Found October 23, 2013 on Flyers Faithful:
  The Flyers have sent Kris Newbury back to the Adirondack Phantoms per Anthony SanFilippo.

He’ll be remembered for that keen assist against the Hurricanes and for not being Jay Rosehill.   Kimmo Timonen has apparently been demoted to the second power play unit in favor of Mark Streit. This makes a ton of sense given how many times Kimmo has fumbled the puck at the blue line and Streit’s excellent slap shot on the man advantage this …Continue reading »
