As the beginning of the NHL season nears, several former Philadelphia Flyers, draft picks of the team, and former members of the organization were involved in transactions this week. The biggest news might be the New York Rangers releasing Johan Hedberg, who was with the team on a Professional Try-Out.

Frequent Flyer Miles: Syvret traded to New York, Fedotenko and Kane leave for KHL, Nodl out in Carolina

There weren’t a lot of noteworthy former Philadelphia Flyers involved in transactions this week, but there were several lesser known former Flyers that moved and a lengthy list of former Phantoms that signed with different teams. The biggest news could surround the tandem of Jaromir Jagr and Danny Briere. Jagr, who was told by Peter Chiarelli and the Boston Bruins last week he wouldn’t return to the team for next season, could return to the 2013 Eastern Conference champions, as Chiarelli said it’s possible they could contact the veteran forward for his services if need be. As for Briere, the …

Homer’s Do’s and Doh’s: A Closer Look

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. Holmgren was able to take a team that finished last in the National Hockey League, and rebuild it to make a deep run all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals the very next season. 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.
