Be More Offensive?

It appears the latest round of negotiations between the National Hockey League and the NHLPA to solve the lockout might lead to some positive results, finally giving the fans a team back to root for. But if the Flyers were to take the ice in the immediate future, would the fans even be happy with what they saw? This has been a relatively disappointing offseason for the Flyers. The bread and butter of the Orange and Black last season was their offense, but it doesn’t appear on paper to have improved. Diving in deeper only causes more concern. The Flyers …

Are Fehr and Bettman unnecessary problems to CBA solution?

Today is December 3, 2012. Day 79 of Lockout, Part III. Today…we consider ourselves…the unluckiest fans…on the face…of the Earth… There has not been one single game of National Hockey League action contested since the Stanley Cup Finals concluded in Los Angeles on June 11. There have been a slew of negotiations between the NHL and the NHL Players Association with little to no progress made on a new collective bargaining agreement. Even federal mediators, poor babysitters that they are, were unable to talk some sense into these two sides and get them closer to settling this labor dispute. NHL …

Homer’s Do’s and Doh’s: Leino Trade v. Giroux Extension and Gagne Trade v. Shelley Signing

Paul Holmgren became the interim General Manager of the Philadelphia Flyers on October 22, 2006. That interim title was removed only weeks later on November 11.

Yes, some of Holmgren’s moves have been amazing, but he’s also a guy who has gotten this organization into some hot water with the salary cap and was forced to make deals that were head scratchers to say the least.

Hockey Hilarity: u good!!

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Happy Friday everybody! It’s unfortunate that the National Hockey League is still in full-on lockout-mode, with no plans to meet, and an apparent moratorium on negotiations has been suggested or put into effect or whatever. Seriously I don’t even care anymore, just get the game back on the ice, alright? Anyway, I guess without the lockout, what you’re about to see wouldn’t have happened. It’s basically just a bunch of tweets from Scott Hartnell, which …
