Welcome to Around the Net, a weekly look through linkage at the Philadelphia Flyers and other news from around the NHL.

King of Kings

The L.A. Kings are the Stanley Cup Champions. Simon Gagne will now have his name on the Cup: [Broad Street Hockey] [The 700 Level] [CSN Philly]

Let the trade rumors begin

Howard Eskin says JVR is faking an injury so he won’t get sent to Columbus. Wouldn’t you? JVR says his foot isn’t healed: [Hockeybuzz.com] [The 700 Level] [Broad Street Hockey]

My take on JVR: His upside is too great to trade for a guy with a $7.8 million dollar cap hit. Sign Carle and trade for a defensemen at the trade deadline.

That’s all for this week, join me next week for more links from around the web on the Flyers and the NHL.
