Snider: Bobrovsky told Flyers he wouldn’t re-sign with them

There’s no question that signing Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine-year, $51 million contract proved to be a major mistake for the Philadelphia Flyers and it’s one they will literally pay for through 2026-27 after buying out his contract. As bad as that is though, the fact that it also cost them Sergei Bobrovsky might hurt more. The Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender won the Vezina Trophy...

After a decade in Europe, Rob Zepp feels Phantoms a fit

Rob Zepp never expected his European sojourn to become something almost permanent. A decade ago, a young goalie who had been drafted by Atlanta and didn’t sign, redrafted by Carolina and didn’t sign, packed his bags and headed to the Finnish Elite League, thinking he’d grow his game and return to North America in a spell. “I went over to Europe with the intention of coming...
