Flyers Forwards Set, Defensemen a Question Mark

Saturday has shown Philadelphia which forwards the team will be going with to start the season. After the assignment of Chris VandeVelde to the Phantoms and Adam Hall being placed on waivers, the lines look like: 1st: Voracek-Giroux-Hartnell 2nd: Schenn-Lecavilier-Simmonds 3rd: Read-Couturier-Talbot 4th: Rinaldo-Laughton-Rosehill   The defense, however, is still up in the air. Earlier...

Flyers Have One More Cut to Go

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: VandeVelde, Gustafsson, Quick Hits

Monday Quick Hits * On the first day of Flyers training camp in Philadelphia, I was sitting near the ice with several other hockey writers. As the players skated, I mentioned offhand that the Flyers had signed Chris VandeVelde to a minor league contract with the Adirondack Phantoms but that arrangement might be temporary with the team maxed out at 50 NHL contracts. The contracts...

And Then There Was One

Well, one RFA that is. With the contract extensions signed for defenceman Alex Plante and centreman Chris VandeVelde Thursday morning, the Oilers only have the much talked about Linus Omark left to sign. Or move.
