Point/Counterpoint: Jagr Mst Stay, Jagr Mst Go

Welcome to the newest edition of “Point/Counterpoint,” where a pair of Flyers Faithful scribes present both sides of one particular issue with their own unique view and flair. This week, Nick D. and Bob H. renew hostilities on the topic of whether or not Jaromir Jagr should be back in Orange and Black next season. Point, from Nick: The Philadelphia Flyers stunned most of the National Hockey League and its fans when they lured a willing Jagr away from the KHL and signed him to a one-year, $3.3 million dollar contract. Not only was it surprising because Jagr was despised …

Flight Plan – Playoff Edition – 04.29.2012

Now Boarding: The Philadelphia Flyers (5) and New Jersey Devils (6) will square off in the Eastern Conference Semi Finals. The Flyers cancelled the Pittsburgh Penguins’ plans to take a non-stop flight to the Stanley Cup Finals in just six games, while the Devils took the Florida Panthers the distance, by forcing a game seven and winning out on Adam Henrique’s goal in the second overtime session. These two teams matched up pretty well in the season series as they split the six game set, though the Flyers picked up all three of their wins in regulation, while the Devils …

Flight Plan – Playoff Edition – 04.08.2012

Now Boarding: After a lengthy and costly 82-game trek, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves in the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference ready to square off against their cross-state rivals in a Keystone State showdown with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Up until the last few weeks, the rivalry with the Penguins had begun to cool down a bit. The Flyers have had the upper hand in the past two season series as they won four of six games this year and last year thanks to a strong showing in the Western part of the Commonwealth. Over the past two games though, …

Flight Plan 12.18.2011

The Philadelphia Flyers had won seven straight and were rolling along despite missing their best forward, their best defenseman, and a few others. Saturday afternoon, that all came to a head. The Flyers were blanked, blown out by the Boston Bruins in the Flyers’ final home game of 2011, by a score of 6-0. If that wasn’t sobering enough, Philadelphia has almost certainly lost another center to a concussion as 19-year old rookie Sean Couturier took a shot in the back of the head from Kimmo Timonen. If, or more likely when, Couturier is diagnosed with a concussion that will …

Flight Plan 12.11.2011

The Philadelphia Flyers have now won five games in a row and are sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings with 39 points and 101 goals scored, being the first team in the NHL to reach 100 goals this season. Peter Laviolette’s club has overcome a lot of criticism and adversity through these first 28 games to get to this point, but they may have to push forward without two more of their best players in Claude Giroux and Ilya Bryzgalov. Giroux is currently leading the NHL in scoring with 39 points, three points ahead of resurgent Toronto Maple Leafs winger …
