What Happened to Scott Laughton?

Among the regularly dressed Philadelphia Flyers forwards, there are four undrafted free agents (Matt Read, Michael Raffl, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Roman Lyubimov) plus former late draft picks in Chris VandeVelde (97th in ’05) and Dale Weise (111th in ’08). Sitting in the press box most nights, dressed in a suit rather than equipment is Scott Laughton, the 20th overall pick...

Claude Giroux Scores Two Goals, Makes Me Look Great (Again)

Me, yesterday, after telling you that Claude Giroux got engaged: Prediction: G scores two goals tonight. G, last night: “Claude Giroux– he gets engaged, scores a couple goals and wins a game.” I don’t know why you’d read any other site!

Small Steps for Flyers

The easiest way to describe the Philadelphia Flyers’ season to date is up-and-down. A win there, a loss here pattern has earned the team an 11-10-3 record through the first 24 games. Just looking at the schedule, Tuesday’s win was the first time Philly won back-to-back games in 10 contests, and have only won three games in a row once. During that stretch, the team had a three...

Just Who Are the 2016-17 Flyers?

Now that the Philadelphia Flyers are past the quarter pole of the 2016-17 regular season, the question fans and management alike are pondering is just what kind of team they are. In no way, shape, or form is the team a Stanley Cup contender. However, fans came into this season with the expectations that the Flyers would be more than the fringe playoff team they have been. So, what’s...

Flyers Come Out Firmly Against Woo

Leave it to the hardened, potato chip-stained, fun-hating beat writers to press the issue of woo-ing with the Flyers today. Overpaid gasbag Tim Panaccio, who hates it, specifically reports on the matter: Flyers say the "wooing" is bugging them, too. Voracek: “It’s childish … and really starting to piss me off.

Philadelphia Flyers Rumors: Is it Time to Trade Mason or Neuvirth?

Mason Jar of Flyers

A week ago, I said this about Steve Mason: "Michal Neuvirth is out for over a month so it’s going to be Mason’s show. Perhaps the extra starts will help him get into a flow but he’s certainly in the 'desperate for starts' category for now." After Tuesday's big game, it's been three strong starts out of four. Mason made 38 saves in the 3-1 win against the Panthers and...

Eric Lindros Changed Philadelphia Hockey Forever

I debated for a long time about how to write this piece. As a journalist you never want to include yourself in the article. And ideally, you’d like it to be free of bias (looking at you, Breitbart). After mulling it over, I decided the only fair way to produce this piece was to write it with the same joyful enthusiasm I felt 18 years ago. As a fan of hockey. As a fan of the Philadelphia...

More to Nick Schultz's Caja Rural Seguros RGA move than the bike

Not since Neil Stephens and Stephen Hodge in the late 1980s has an Australian raced for the Caja Rural Seguros RGA team. From 2017, Nick Schultz will become the third rider from down under to pull on the familiar green kit of the Spanish Pro-Continental squad. A consistent season highlighted by a stage win at the Tour de l'Avenir helped the 22-year-old seal the deal but the fact...

Flyers GM asked Eric Lindros to come out of retirement in 2012

Eric Lindros’ storied career was cut down by injuries, but if former Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had his way, Lindros wouldn’t have exited the league so soon. After spending nearly a decade and a half in the NHL, Lindros retired in 2006-2007 at the age of 34. The former first overall pick was plagued with concussion injuries, so the early retirement didn’t...

WATCH: Claude Giroux makes Jaroslav Halak look silly in the shootout

Jaroslav Halak is reportedly on the trading block following comments from his agent, but his trade value may have taken a small step back when teams see how badly he was undressed by Claude Giroux in the shootout. At first, it looked like Halak had Giroux figured out, but soon it became clear Halak was completely bested. That’s just a filthy move.

Watch: Flyers’ Radko Gudas had one of the best, most unique assists of the year

Radko Gudas could have a pretty decent career as a goalie if his current role as a defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers doesn’t work out. The Flyers were trailing 4-2 in the second period to the Pittsburgh Penguins and were in the final few seconds of a power play when the Penguins made a final effort to clear their zone. Gudas kept the puck in the attacking zone three separate...

Sam Gagner scores a goal so dirty you’ll need to take a shower afterwards

Yes, it is the preseason. That doesn’t mean that some highlights are already in mid-season form. When you are a human highlight reel like Sam Gagner, the preseason is never an excuse. The man just scores beautiful shootout goals. Last night against the Bruins, he gave us all a goal so nice, you have to view it twice. Pfft. He made it look easy, too! If Gagner’s first two games...

Watch: Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere takes a skate blade to the face

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is pretty lucky to have escaped a serious injury after a skate blade caught him on the face during his team’s matchup against the LA Kings. Gostisbehere, who was one of the most exciting rookies last season, was skating in his defensive zone when Kyle Clifford fell to the ice. Clifford’s skate swung up and caught Gostisbehere...

Video: Jakub Voracek skates through the Rangers to win it in OT

Hockey is most certainly a team game, but sometimes a great individual effort can completely overtake an opponent and decide the result. Such was the case when Jakub Voracek skated around all three Rangers on the ice in OT and sent Flyers fans home happy. That’s an incredible individual effort. It may just be the preseason, but Rangers fans aren’t going to be happy with how...
