Dos Recchis

Pub Quiz Updates

Our throwback beer is called Dos Recchis. It is a blood orange and black peppercorn Saison. The beer is nearly done brewing. The test batch was done a few weeks ago and it was absolutely delectable. The shirts we are giving away have an easter egg built into them (shh, it’s a secret!) We confirmed this weekend that we will have another Flyers-themed ice sculpture shot luge. Yessssss. If all goes according to plan, there will be a big unveiling at the event. Worst case scenario, the unveiling happens in time for the holidays. We will be doing a 50/50 …

Is it time to replace Paul Holmgren?

The Flyers were 1-6-1 in 2006 when Bobby Clarke stepped down. It was the team’s worst record in 15 years. The Flyers are currently 1-5-0, 29th in the league, and already replaced head coach, Peter Laviolette. Is it time to make a switch at the GM level too or is Paul Holmgren’s job safe?

Can I go back to Columbus now?

Thoughts after three

Impressive Flyers so far: Vincent Lecavalier Brayden Schenn Mark Streit Zac Rinaldo Steve Mason (minus one goal) I keep thinking to myself things like, “Why is Nicklas Grossmann carrying the puck in the offensive zone?”, “Why is Grossmann shooting the puck?”, “Why is Grossmann still on the ice?” That’s not a criticism of Grossmann so much as it is an acknowledgment that perhaps he’s being misused and overused.

Is Manning No. 49?

Numbering at 49 out of 50, Brandon Manning comes in tight to be signed as another defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers. As the team is allowed 50 contracts in total on their salary cap, some have questioned the team’s choosing of Manning for a one year two way deal. At the age of 23 and under the Adirondack Phantoms, Manning scored 6 goals along with 15 assists within 65 games for the Phantoms.  While playing in the 2011-2012 AHL season, Manning was called up to the Flyer’s main roster to replace a then injured Pavel Kubina, a Czech player who …
