Metropolitan Division Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets are the oddest team of the bunch to join the Philadelphia Flyers and the other former Atlantic Division castoffs in the Metropolitan Division. They’ve had a mostly miserable existence in the Western Conference, getting picked on by teams like the Detroit Red Wings (who are in the NEW Atlantic Division — is this confusing enough for you?) and the Chicago Blackhawks. The Blue Jackets made a nice push for the playoffs last year, but came up a few points short. Oddly enough, they already have some division ties between a couple of major trades with the …

Metropolitan Division Preview: New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils and the Philadelphia Flyers do not like each. This rivalry started on the elbows of Scott Stevens and has continued ever since. And now we find ourselves at this point. The Devils find themselves heading into the 2013-14 season- I’m sorry, I can’t contain it anymore. I need to get this out. KOVALCHUK RETIRED! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA The Devils’ best player and only real scoring threat just went and retired on them. Just like that. He decided that home is where the heart is (as well as the government sanctioned homophobia). But let’s be serious for a second. …

US-ehhhhhh: Team America unveils Olympic Jerseys

Now while there aren’t any Philadelphia Flyers up for the US Olympic team at the moment, I’m still assuming most of you Flyers fans will also be rooting for the old stars and stripes come February. On Tuesday, August 27th, Team USA unveiled the jerseys that they will be wearing in the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The results are…underwhelming. What is this fake lace nonsense? The weird dark blue stars are one thing, but fake laces? Unacceptable. Nike is making me thank my lucky stars for Reebok. You know, the same company that introduced us to this blandness from a few …

Uni Watch: Flyers Have 5th Best Duds in the NHL

The nifty ESPN blog Uni Watch has been putting out power rankings for the four major sports all week, and today was NHL day. The Flyers came in 5th for the best unis in the league, according to Paul Lukas, noting that they have the best look of any non-original 6 team. I myself am a big fan of the Flyers’ current look and am really glad they went back to a classic style. And while I wasn’t a big fan of the color contrasting nameplates at first, they’ve really grown on me and I love them now. Let us …
