Starting today I’ll be publishing a prospect report every Friday on those players within the Flyers farm system. I’ll be taking a look at the kids in the CHL (QMJHL/OHL/WHL), Europe, the ECHL and the AHL. Of course, stats only tell part of the story. But these postings will be a convenient way to get a streamlined feel about the potential future talent for the Philadelphia Flyers.
As I gain an opportunity to get in touch with those who are more familiar with seeing these players in action I’ll be able to elaborate a little bit more. And while this weekly report will discuss all of the Flyers prospects, I will only be recognizing a few players from the Phantoms on a weekly basis, not all of them. If you have questions about the happenings with the Phantoms I highly suggest you seek out Tim McManus. He has his ...

Creative accounting is a part of the NHL in its salary cap era. The Philadelphia Flyers have a method that is unique to them to exceed the salary cap. They do not buyout players.

The most obvious figure of the past for the Flyers is Mike Richards. Richards is the...

Much will be made of the return of the team’s former captain, Mike Richards, returning to the only home ice he has ever known in his professional career. And rightfully so, as Richards enjoyed some excellent seasons...

Under the visor, Mike Richards still looks the same. It's the rest of his makeover that still seems out of place as he prepares for his Philadelphia homecoming. He wears No. 10 instead of 18 and the "C" has been stripped from his jersey. Oh yeah, the jersey. Gone is the orange and black of the Philadelphia Flyers.
This hit from Zac Rinaldo of the Flyers forced him out of the game tonight after 24 seconds of play.
During his tenure with the Philadelphia Flyers, Mike Richards was the center of attention as captain for a competitive team in a sports-crazed city.
Now a member of the Los Angeles Kings, Richards admits it's nice to take a backseat to some of his other high-profile teammates.
Richards returns to Philadelphia on Saturday night for the first time since being traded this offseason...
