Found October 16, 2013 on Flyers Faithful:
The Flyers have now played four games underneath a new head coach. And yet, apparently, we’re still blaming Peter Laviolette for some of their issues. It might make sense if we’re talking about the mishandling of training camp, or his particular system, or something concrete. But no, according to one local sportswriter/analyst, Laviolette is at fault for the lackluster play of team captain Claude Giroux. CSN Philly’s John Boruk published an article yesterday discussing how Giroux has not been the same since his now ex-coach labeled him “the best player in the world” during the 2012 playoffs. Maybe Giroux has …Continue reading »

‘Best Player In The World’ Tag Hasn’t Helped Giroux

from John Boruk of CSNPhilly, Immediately after the Flyers disposed of their cross-state rival Penguins in six games in the first round of the 2012 playoffs, Giroux went from rising superstar to the king of the NHL mountain. His former coach, Peter Laviolette, rolled out one of those medieval catapults at his postgame press conference, and launched Giroux into a hockey stratosphere...

Chris Pronger will ‘never play again’

The issue of head injuries in sports has really exploded over the past decade. With all of the new information we have involving the sensitivity of injuries and how to diagnose concussions, head injuries has become a hot topic relative to sports. The NHL is no stranger to head injuries and if you are looking for a prime example of a player who’s career was completely de-railed...

Flyers Could Use Thomas Vanek

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Vanek, a rugged 6-foot-2, 207-pounder who is one of Buffalo's cornerstones, could bring the Sabres several prospects (Scott Laughton? Nick Cousins? Oliver Lauridsen?) and/or draft picks. He would feel right at home with the Flyers because he was winger Michael Raffl's linemate with Austria at the 2013 IIHF World Championships...

Claude Giroux Hockey Pool Picks 2013 2014

Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers is the #8 forward points-only hockey pool pick. He is a Canadian born right winger who is 25 years old. Giroux is the catalyst for much of the Philly offense and you can count on him to accumulate many assists for your fantasy pool. Look for him to continue his torrid pace and light up the opposition. A downside to drafting is he recently had wrist

Coming home again, Flyers host Canucks

Claude Giroux scored in the Flyers last meeting with the Vancouver Canucks in 2011, a 5-4 Flyers win.

Following losses to the Western Conference's Phoenix Coyotes and former West foe Detroit Red Wings, another...

Holmgren: Chris Pronger is "never going to play again"

It’s difficult to miss Chris Pronger even when he’s wearing a suit and tie instead of hockey equipment. That’s largely because he’s so big but he’s also loud and boisterous and draws a crowd. Draft day 2013 was no different. Even though Pronger was behind the barrier separating teams from everyone else he came to the front of the area to share his thoughts with anyone who...

They've scored a total of 10 goals in those...
