Analyzing Jakub Voracek’s new deal with the Flyers

The Flyers announced that they have signed Jakub Voracek to a monster deal: Eight years at $66 million, which comes out to about $8.25 million a year.

Affairs of the Hart (Trophy)

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 like Most Valuable...

A look at Chris Pronger’s Hockey Hall of Fame banner

Chris Pronger was a member of a stacked group of 2015 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees and now his banner can be found at the Hall. Pronger still technically hasn’t retired (in fact, his contract was recently traded to the Arizona Coyotes), but the Hall of Fame elected to waive the eligibility rules for Pronger. Here’s a look at Pronger’s banner: Now up! Hockey Hall of Fame...

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. There is still time for trades to be made and players to be signed, and Hextall has said he is still trying to trade Vincent Lecavalier and another defenseman. Considering the Flyers...

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.

That led to an interesting series of events over the weekend. Pronger's contract was part of a trade with Arizona Saturday...

Chris Pronger bends the rules one last time (Puck Daddy)

Chris Pronger was asked about it several ways, but he wasn’t going to acknowledge it.  How surreal it was to still have an active NHL contract and be elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. How surreal it was to actually have been involved in an NHL trade less than 48 hours before his selection. How surreal it was to have the gatekeepers to immortality change their bylaws to grant...
