The Curious Case of Carlo Colaiacovo

After looking at who I think should be a choice for a healthy scratch on Saturday, I wanted to look at his possible replacement.  The Flyers defense has been a rotating door this season, both on and off the ice. Four different defensemen have been healthy scratches in recent games: Michael Del Zotto, Luke Schenn, Andrew MacDonald and the subject of this piece, Carlo Colaicovo...

Grossmann is Gross, Man.

The Philadelphia Flyers currently have eight healthy defensemen. Three of these defensemen have played every game they have been healthy for: Mark Streit, who has been the Flyers best offensive defenseman, Braydon Coburn, the veteran who has played well after an injury early in the season, and Nicklas Grossmann, who quite frankly isn’t that good. Grossmann has played in all 25...

Morning After: Right response, wrong finish for Flyers

The Flyers season is starting to become a broken record. The effort was there but the goals weren't. "We played well enough to win, but you have to score." You've probably heard this before. The result was the same for the Flyers as they fired 39 shots on Darcy Kuemper on Thursday night to score just two goals. In the end, a late turnover by Andrew MacDonald led to the game...

Tuesday Tactical Tidings: Michael Del Zotto Flying Under the Radar

When the Philadelphia Flyers signed Michael Del Zotto in August after the tragic injury to Kimmo Timonen, many expected him to play minimal minutes in a 3rd pairing role. However, due to injuries to Braydon Coburn, Andrew MacDonald and now Luke Schenn, Del Zotto has been forced to play more minutes and play against tougher competition. Fortunately, he has thrived in his newfound...

Lavoie: Talks with Stralman not going well

Per Renaud Lavoie, talks between the Rangers and UFA defenseman Anton Stralman are not going as planned. The Rangers are allotting $4 million to Stralman, but it definitely seems that Stralman will get north of $4.5 million, probably closer to the $5 million that Andrew MacDonald got from Philadelphia. If AMac’s contract wasn’t enough proof, […]

The Illogical, Indefensible Decision to Play Hal Gill

Gill was on the ice for the Rangers' 2nd and 3rd goals that effectively buried the Flyers at 3-0 in the second period, and both came directly following miscues from Gill. On the second Rangers goal, Gill whiffed on a glorious scoring chance that...
