Flyers dominate home half of back-to-back with Penguins

Finding A Fit For Ryan Kesler In Philadelphia

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, Way back in the day, the Philadelphia Flyers thought enough of Ryan Kesler’s upside that they signed him to an offer sheet – a rare provocative move in the NHL – in the hopes of poaching him from the Vancouver Canucks long before he ever broke through as a front-line NHL player. So Philadelphia’s interest in Kesler is long...
