Our top posts of 2010

Flyers Faithful officially launched in August of 2010 and it turned out to be a great season to launch. Claude Giroux began a breakout season. Sergei Bobrovsky provided a sense of stability in net that the Flyers haven’t seen from a rookie in ages. The Flyers shot to the top of the standings and reached 20 wins the earliest since 1986. So far, so good.

While the team enjoys some time off, let’s take a few minutes to recap the top Flyers Faithful stories of the year.

Remembering Pelle

Remembering Pelle is a five part series honoring the memory of former Flyers’ goaltender, Pelle Lindbergh, whose life was tragically cut short on November 11, 1985.

So You Want To Trade Jeff Carter? Are you sure?

Jeff Carter was signed by Paul Holmgren this past weekend. He signed for 11 years for a reported $58 million dollars working out to about a $5.27 million dollar cap hit. This is more than reasonable, this is a great deal. Regardless of whether you like the guy or you hate the guy, Jeff… Link

The Lulz feature was originally inspired by the lolcats site but features hockey pictures with funny, quirky, ironic or just plain mean captions.  This feature should run weekly on Mondays, just to try to make your Monday a little brighter… Link

RICE & MICE: Leighton’s back

RICE & MICE will periodically review injuries that are common, uncommon or just plain unique in hockey. I hope to provide some insight to the “how’s, why’s, and when’s” of the injuries that might keep players out of the lineup. The Flyers announced last night that the NHL granted a two game extension to Michael… Link

Five Questions

Flyers Faithful asked Sarah Baicker from CSN Philly, Anthony SanFilippo from the DelCo Daily Times, Geoff Detweiler from Broad Street Hockey, and our very own Nina G five questions about the ’11 Flyers’ season. We are very grateful that they took the time to share their opinions and predictions with us. Each day of… Link

Tim McManus shares his thoughts on Erik Gustafsson

Bill Meltzer wrote, “According to Derian Hatcher, it’s ‘no contest’ that Erik Gustafsson is the most skilled and polished of the defense prospects who attended the rookie camp earlier in the week.” Do you agree? What is your impression of Erik Gustafsson? I didn’t get in to town until after the rookie camp, but… Link
