The Philadelphia Flyers have been locked in salary cap "jail" for the last few seasons, but general manager Ron Hextall has made some major strides. After just one season, it's safe to say the Flyers are a vastly improved team and that is solely the work of Hextall. They still might have one of the priciest blue lines in the NHL today, but it's...

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms look to be in good shape heading into the 2015-2016 season. Their forwards, previewed here, should have a great mix of youth and veterans with both speed and skill. Their projected defensemen, on the other hand, have an abundance of youth and size, while potentially lacking in veteran presence and speed. In terms of...

On Thursday evening the Philadelphia Flyers announced a big contract extension for forward Jakub Voracek. The Flyers are very sneaky and decided not to announce term or money and just told fans that Voracek re-signed to some years and some money. Luckily, TSN's Frank Seravalli passed along that the deal carries a term of eight years and an AAV...

This past week has seen quite a bit of action for the last week of July. A fairly big trade, a great contract extension and few more minor things - all things considered, not to bad of a week for the hockey junkies out there. Today we'll review those moves and see who got better and who got (laughably) worse. If you're a Canucks fan, you should...

If I've learned anything in the last few weeks, it's that there is an incredible and surprising appetite for Leafs news in the middle of the summer. Were the Leafs a good team, this wouldn't be so shocking, but the Leafs have had one Playoff appearance in the last ten years. For most teams, this would be a disaster and drastic moves would be...

With the Philadelphia Flyers in somewhat of a holding pattern for the rest of the summer, it is time to look ahead to the 2015-2016 season. There always can be more trades and signings, but the core of both the Flyers and their AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, look to be set. Therefore, I will now begin to preview the 2015-2016 season...

The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Thursday that they have signed the 2015 NHL Entry Draft's 24th overall pick, Travis Konecny, to an entry-level contract. Konecny played for the Ottawa 67's last year in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), scoring 29 goals and 39 assists through 60 games as the captain of the 67's. That's almost exactly what he...

The Philadelphia Flyers have found themselves a quality power forward prospect in Oskar Lindblom. He was selected 138th overall (5th round) in the 2014 NHL Draft, and has since proven that he should have been off the board earlier. Because his birthday is in August, he was one of the youngest available prospects in 2014 (he turns 19 on...

Ron Hextall has made a handful of fantastic moves so far this summer. Over the past few weeks, the Philadelphia Flyers have been able to shed salary and gain some phenomenal prospects. Here is a brief recap: 1. Drafting Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny in the first round of the Draft was a steal. By some accounts, Provorov and Konecny are...

New Flyers forward Sam Gagner knows uncertainty. At only 25, the London, Ontario native has now been traded under unusual circumstances in back-to-back offseasons. After the Tampa Bay Lightning traded for the former Edmonton Oiler in 2014, he was sent to Arizona after calling the Bolts his team for the duration of an hour. This year, Gagner...
