Scott Hartnell walks into the NHL offices…

The Lulz feature was originally inspired by the lolcats site but features hockey pictures with funny, quirky, ironic or just plain mean captions. This feature should run weekly on Fridays; TGIFWL (Thank Goodness It’s Friday With Lulz).

Help Wanted

Here we are, Flyers fans. Offers to Ryan Suter and Zach Parise were procured and rejected, thankfully. A mega offer sheet to the tune of 14 years and $110 million dollars was matched by Nashville for all-world defenseman Shea Weber — a contract so large that it could cripple the Nashville franchise if they don’t sell out every game and make a deep playoff run. So what do the Flyers do now? More specifically, what does Paul Holmgren do now? We knew before that Homer has marbles (see “Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, trades of”). We know Homer’s cajones got …

Why You Heff Ta Be Mad?

It’s been a tough last few days for Flyers fans. A tough offseason, even. The team wound up losing out on Shea Weber, and hasn’t really made any splash-worthy moves so far this summer.

I kind of veered left, though, as I looked for a way to quantify not just a goalie’s performance, but his overall value to the team. It may seem pretty straightforward, but to fully understand it, I felt that some simple metrics could be combined to give a better total insight.

My Flyers Story

Most regular visitors to the site will recall the “Five Reasons I Love The Flyers” feature that we ran here for a long time. It was a fun way to get the hockey blog community to share their devotion that had its time and has since retired to a lovely farm upstate. We’d like to introduce our newest feature for the site that will premiere in the fall — My Flyers Story. Every Flyers fan has at least one good Flyers story. That time you got into a fight with a Rangers fan and accidentally spilled beer on Mark Messier. …
