Richards-stands-with
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 will tell you it's a t...

Flyers' Laviolette back where he belongs - at rink

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette is back where he belongs, at the team's training complex, speaking to reporters and watching some of his players work out. They're not all back yet, but they will be here soon, as the Flyers finally get a chance to wash away the sting of another short playoff run last season.

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.

Tim Panaccio: Bad News Already?

Training camp hasn't opened. Few players are even around. And already, the Flyers are facing some bad news. Back in November and even last month, Andrej Meszaros was all smiles about likely being cleared to play when the lockout ended. Today, he was not smiling.

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.

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...
