2015 Hockey Hall Of Fame Inductions Celebrate Women And International Stars

Yes, believe it or not, the good refs and linesmen do occasionally get recognized for their contributions. And it also honors women. Some people think we shouldn’t even opine about...

Analyzing Jakub Voracek’s new deal with the Flyers

Affairs of the Hart (Trophy)

By Dalton Mack End-of-season awards, regardless of sport, engender quite a bit of debate, from well-groomed TV analysts to grizzled couch-dwellers. Deciding which player is the best at something is difficult when there is no perfect, catch-all statistic. Sure, there are awards that represent a certain milestone—the batting title in baseball, the Golden Boot in soccer—but awards...

An early look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ blue line

Following the NHL Draft and the main portion of the free agency period, late July seems like a decent time to discuss what the Philadelphia Flyers’ blue line will look like in the 2015-2016 season.

What does magician Hextall have up his sleeve next?

  In just a little more than four months, Flyers GM Ron Hextall has gone from your average, ordinary general manager to a magician at work.   He traded 40-year-old veteran Kimmo Timonen, who had not played all season and had two months left in his playing career, for Chicago’s second-round pick. He turned Braydon Coburn into a first-round pick, a third-round pick and Radko...

What a week: Pronger traded then elected to Hall of Fame in matter of days

Chris Pronger is living a very surreal life. The former Hart Trophy winner has not played a game since November 2011 due to post-concussion syndrome and vision issues from getting hit in the eye by the blade of a stick, but he still has an active NHL contract. That led to an interesting series of events over the weekend. Pronger's contract was part of a trade with Arizona Saturday...
