Flyperbole: Rumor Ruminations on Steve Mason’s Next Contract, Henrik Lundqvist

MASON MISSION I am absolutely terrified of the contract that the Flyers are going to offer Steve Mason. Mase has been absolutely stellar this year. He has surpassed my wildest expectations thus far. But I’m waiting for the bottom to fall out of the bottom of the cardboard box that is Flyers goaltending.   Maybe I feel like Charlie Brown and Flyers goaltending is Lucy with the...

(Not to take away the importance of special teams. Some teams can ride them deep into the playoffs.) Our Nick D recently suggested I take a look at the Flyers five-on-five play and compare it to the past few...

Fake Hockey Help: Tyler Bozak, the Devils’ defense, Mazanec and Andersen

Flight Plan: Wheels Up

In this writer’s opinion, the Philadelphia Flyers blew it last week. The team had three games which they should have won, one of which they could have grabbed a point in, and garnered just four points to their names and worse, they scored just seven goals in the process. To come out the way they did against the lowly Florida Panthers, is just unacceptable. To need overtime and...
