That was back on Feb. 4, 2003, some 3,901 days ago. For Roy, it’s been over ten years since he graced...

Flyers Mike Knuble knows that his playing career might be over

Forward Mike Knuble doesn’t regret signing a one-year deal to play with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2013 but it kept him away from his home and family in East Grand Rapids Michigan. He turned 41 on July 4 and at this point his primary goal as an unrestricted free agent is to stay close to home. “I never want to move away to the east coast” he told MLive. “I don’t mind some...

Tale of Bruins’ Struggles Starting to Sound Like Broken Record After ‘Saturday Snoozer’ Loss to Flyers (Video)

The Bruins moved one game closer to the end of March on Saturday, and that’s all that can really be said about the team’s performance.

Philadelphia, on the other hand, showed little...

Just remembered that Mike Knuble is a free agent and got excited. He'd look good with a skating penguin on his chest. Sure, he's 40-years-old and his best days are long behind him, but it's a shortened season with a long offseason. Besides, how much can he really cost? If he's terrible, bench him.
