Yardbarker

A letter from the owner

I am happy to announce that, as part of our growth into the Philly Sports Faithful network, Flyers Faithful has decided to join the Yardbarker Network. In the past, I have been admittedly too stubborn to join any sort of network, as part of my li’l brudder, I-can-do-it-on-my-own complex. I’ve gotten over myself, though. Why? The answer is twofold: being a part of a respectable, established group like Yardbarker gives us increased exposure, which frees us up to focus more on site content over self-promotion. Secondly, it increases the chance of generating revenue. Maybe that sounds evil and whorish but, …

You might remember this guy from such roles as Flyers 2013 defenseman

The (positive) outlook on defense

It is unlikely that this offseason will feature more than two big moves on defense for the Flyers. There will be no Keith Yandle, Alex Pietrangelo or Shea Weber patrolling Philadelphia’s blue line. The Flyers have been interested in Yandle for a few years now and they finally managed to get him. Well, not him. They go Mark Streit and he’s kind of like Yandle. They both have the same cap hit and both put up nearly the same amount of points in the last two seasons (Streit had 74 points and Yandle had 73). Streit may be older but he …

2013 Flyers first round pick, Samuel Morin

Draft day creates more questions than it answers for the Flyers

Coming into yesterday’s draft, it was clear that the Flyers needed to stock up on prospects as a whole and specifically defensemen. In that regard, the team accomplished their mission. However, the moves that they made — as well as ones that they did not — result in some unanswered questions. Shortly before the Flyers were on the clock to make their first round pick, it was announced that the Devils acquired Vancouver’s supposed starter of the future, Cory Schneider, for the 9th overall pick. If the Flyers have been linked to Jonathan Bernier, Jaroslav Halak, and just about every …

Robert Hägg

Flyers draft Robert Hägg in the second round of the 2013 draft

With the 41st overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, the Flyers select Swedish left-handed defenseman, Robert Hägg, from Modo Jr. Hägg, who is listed at 6’2″ and 201lb. at the age of 18, is a well rounded defenseman who was projected to go in the latter half of the first round. Although his game is fairly solid, his physical play lacks consistency. He also told reporters today that he needed to work on his “wild inconsistency”, according to CSN Philly’s Sarah Baicker. (Hey there, Braydon Coburn.) The big, mobile defender served as an assistant captain on Sweden’s U18 …
