Frequent Flyer Miles: Jagr joins the Devils, Delmore retires and becomes assistant coach, Riopel to play in Denmark

It was a slow week in terms of the movement of former Philadelphia Flyers and Philly’s draft picks, as only three former players and two draft picks switched clubs. The most notable move was Jaromir Jagr joining the New Jersey Devils. Jagr was a member of the Flyers in 2011-2012, where he posted 53 points in 73 tilts and eight points in 11 contests during the 2012 postseason.

On this edition of the Flyers Faithful podcast, Steve and Hal welcome back Fran from the ever great Flyers Goal Scored By and talk all things Flyers, hockey, and, well, pretty much everything about everything. They spoke for so long that Fran’s phone died. The guys also discuss the Flyers’ matchups against the Rangers, Capitals, and Hurricanes, John Erskine’s suspension for his hit on Wayne Simmonds, the mere possibility of Jerome Iginla in orange and black, and whether we’ve all been overreacting just a teensy bit.

Flight Plan: Week of 01.21.2013

The Philadelphia Flyers had a rough start to this condensed 48-game schedule as they dropped both ends of a back-to-back over the weekend. A loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins is never fun, but despite looking flat in the first period, the Flyers really only lost by one goal as the Penguins scored an empty netter late in the third period to seal the win.
