This Week in Flyers' History: Week Ending April 27th

The Flyers were in Buffalo for Game Six in the 2000-2001 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals facing Dominick Hasek and the Sabres. Down three games to two, the Flyers had to beat Buffalo to force a Game 7 back in Philadelphia. Coach Bill Barber would need to have his squad get on the board early and put pressure on the Sabres to try and tie the series up. None of that happened... Not...

Sabres Rumor: Contract extension for Ted Nolan almost a done deal

The Buffalo Sabres are close to a deal with head coach Ted Nolan, on a three year contract extension. Given the supposed front office infighting that led to the resignation of Pat Lafontaine, this extension may seem odd to some.It was thought that Nolan was not going to be the first choice of new general manager Tim Murray, but if the reports out of Buffalo are correct, a new three...

Bingo Recruits, When Will Boston Vs Ottawa Happen? And other news and notes...

  As a head coach for a minor league affiliate, it has to be somewhat of a bittersweet feeling to help graduate so many prospects to the NHL-level. On one hand, there has to be some personal gratification knowing that you had some hand in the development of the 14 rookies who have dressed for a game with the Ottawa Senators this season. On the other, thanks to absurd...

The Leafs Are Finally Learning

from Damien Cox of The Spin at the Toronto Star, The team that over the past three decades has been synonymous with rushing, wrecking and prematurely disposing of young hockey players appears to have finally grasped the concept that approach won't get it anywhere. This is the franchise, after all, that started three teenagers on the blueline in the early 1980s, put Luke...

AHL stalwarts ready to make big NHL impact

The Senators developed one game-breaker in defenseman Erik Karlsson. Can they do it again with winger Jakob Silfverberg?He has earned comparisons to Daniel Alfredsson. That is might be a stretch, but his progress this season in Binghamton suggests Silfverberg can make it big. He scored 13 goals and added 15 assists in 32 games for the B-Senators.“He can do it at the next level...

Can Binghamton Keep It Up?

Brandishing a record of 17-7-1-2, the Binghamton Senators currently reside in second place in the AHL’s East Division. Given the abundance of youth on the roster, a collective group that the organization likes to refer to as one of the youngest teams in the league, their place in the standings through the first third of the season may be somewhat surprising. Not that it has...

Richardson Speaks: Fast Defense Wins Norris Trophies

When the Sum 41 intro cued Luke Richardson's weekly appearance on 1200's The Drive radio program, I have to admit, the struggle to prevent my mouse cursor from pressing stop on the audio stream was maddening.
