Flyers at 40 years without Stanley Cup title

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Flyers are set to hit the big 4-0. Yes, that's 40 years without a Stanley Cup championship. Winning it all this season would erase one of the longest Cup droughts in the NHL, though this year's team seems far removed from championship contention.

Flyers made a “horrible mistake” by signing Ilya Bryzgalov

Most fans and hockey experts have acknowledged – perhaps repeatedly – that the Ilya Bryzgalov experiment in Philadelphia was a disaster of epic proportions. In situations like these, one which forces a contract to be bought out, the team responsible rarely acknowledges the mistake and often never speaks of the player in question. That hasn’t been the case with the Philadelphia...

Does Wild owner Craig Leipold need to back off a bit?

Craig Leipold has been a very visible owner, but is he too involved with the running of the team’s day to day operations? You’ve probably heard the phrase of “too many cooks in the kitchen” which applies to situations where you have too many people with ideas in a small area with little getting accomplished.  After reading an article in the Hockey News‘ 2014 Season Commemorative...
