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. …

Does Hal Gill have a chance to stick with the Flyers?

After being invited to training camp, does Hal Gill have a legitimate chance to stick with the Philadelphia Flyers?

From my article last week: The Flyers are currently just over $2 million over the league’s upper limit, so they will have to shed some cap space. The likely candidates are defenseman Braydon Coburn or Andrej Meszaros (or Grossmann to a lesser extent). The Flyers have nine blue-liners signed to one-way contract; and young players such as Oliver Lauridsen are knocking on the door of …

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 …

Razor Ray Returns for Second Act

When Ray Emery left the Flyers in March of 2010 after only nine months with the team, it was not on his terms. Nor was it on the team’s terms, exactly. Emery was not able to finish riding out his one-year deal with the team thanks to a debilitating disease known as avascular necrosis. It was an issue that not only threatened his career, but could hamper him for the rest of his life. “I understood that there was a possibility that I might not play again, but it was just kind of what’s the next step after I found …
