Hall-of-Famer Eventually, But Chris Pronger Will Have to Wait

One would think that a trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame would be easy for someone of Chris Pronger’s caliber.  He has won a Stanley Cup and two Olympic […]

Sunday Notes: Welcome Back, Winnipeg!

The best moment of the NHL season so far was not Phil Kessel’s hat trick, Philadelphia’s great start, or the Bruins’ wonderful Stanley Cup banner raising ceremony. The best moment […]

Flyers showing life without trade

It’s been a slow road back to recovery for the Flyers who, after starting 12-5-1, went on a disastrous streak of 3-13-1 sending them on a free-fall from the heights of the Eastern Conference back to the league basement. With three road wins in a row in front of Michael Leighton of all goalies, they have pulled themselves back to an even 18-18-2, but have they completely recovered?

Flyers unsung heroes winning games

It’s easy to look at the Flyers’ early season success and give all of the credit to players like Chris Pronger, Ray Emery, and James vanRiemsdyk who are all having great first seasons with the organization. It’s even easier to drop the usual names like Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, and Kimmo Timonen who have obviously had a hand in the Flyers’ winning ways for a couple of years now.

Perfect Storm Brewing as Flyers Prepare for ‘Canes

The Flyers already had the most difficult and rigorous opening month scheduled among all NHL teams going into the season. Nine of their eleven games were against 2008-09 playoff teams, and when added to the most bizarre scheduling the team had seen in years, it has made for some hard times.

Return of the Orange Army: Flyers 2009-10

Return of the Orange Army: Flyers 2009-10

Once again the Flyers are orange. The black jerseys that Philadelphia has worn for years have been dropped for the more traditional look. The former orange thirds have become the new home jerseys as the blacks will now be scheduled in for specific games. The change comes at an important cross-roads in the team’s history of course; one that leaves many to speculate whether or not the 2009-10 Philadelphia Flyers have an identity crisis.

JVR shines as TSN blames Emery

JVR shines as TSN blames Emery

If you were to embark on a journey to any website with an article about the 2009-10 Philadelphia Flyers you can expect to find two things: a mention of Chris Pronger and that Ray Emery could be the downfall of the Flyers’ season. It is odd though that no one so far has mentioned exactly how Emery could dismantle one of the best on-paper lineups the Flyers have ever iced. Maybe it is meant to be left up to the imaginative reader to think up scenarios for themselves? Could Emery self-destruct in a cluster of off-ice incidents leaving the Flyers without a goalie? Could he divide the locker-room into two seperate factions that hate each other? Could he alienate the coaching staff and ignore what is best for the team? Could he stab Pronger and take a baseball bat to Jeff Carter’s knee?

Flyers Camp Opens to Record Attendance

Flyers Camp Opens to Record Attendance

Flyers training camp opened to a record attendance for the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ early Sunday morning. The excitement had not yet worn off from the incredible rookie scrimmage between the Flyers and Capitals where former second overall selection James van Riemsdyk showed exactly why he was taken so early with a four goal, five point performance. It had been standing room only in the Skate Zone for all open to the public practices all weekend.
