Negadelphia: Fixing The Philadelphia Flyers

***Negadelphia is an exercise where I channel the opinions of Philly’s worst into a post. No idiots were harmed in the making of this post, unfortunately.*** Another year and no Stanley Cup for the Philadelphia Flyers.  I’m getting fed up with this garbage!  These underachieving losers have a lot to do in the offseason if they actually want to be contenders.

What About Bob?

Keep those number 35 jerseys stored away, because we in Flyerdom won’t be seeing 23-year old netminder Sergei Bobrovsky for a while. It appears as though Peter Laviolette has decided to let incumbent Ilya Bryzgalov keep the keys to the Flyers nets. Since returning from the flu, Bryzgalov has started nine straight games. In his last nine starts, Bryzgalov has a 2.33 GAA and a .912 save percentage. Bryz also recorded his third shut out of the season in that span. Only once in the last nine games have we seen the man Flyers fans affectionately call “Bob.” Bobrovsky came …

Point/Counterpoint: Trade deadline moves

Point: Tweak the roster By Steve J The Flyers miss the hell out of Chris Pronger.  You know it, I know it, Trent Klatt knows it.  The trade rumors that have circulated for the past couple of months have revolved around the defense.  Ryan Suter, Shea Weber, Tim Gleason, and Luke Schenn’s names have been floated as potential candidates.  The cost for most of these guys would be at least one young forward, which happens to be the Flyers’ greatest asset.  Well, in the words of the immortal sage Admiral Ackbar, it’s a trap! It is absolutely not worth it …

Flyers fail to show up for 2011 playoffs Injuries limited Chris Pronger to 50 regular season and three playoff games during the 2010-2011 season. Nikolay Zherdev was a riddle wrapped in an enigma and battered in an average 1.29 goals per 60 minutes. The team was plagued with alleged locker room issues, tales of hard-partying stars, and the lack of a clear-cut starting goalie (despite the fact that both Sergei …

Snider inducted into USA Hockey Hall of Fame

It looked like it was going to be a fool’s game, trying to bring professional hockey to a city whose only previous foray was a 4-win team known as the Philadelphia Quakers that lasted one forgettable NHL season in the 1930′s. But Ed Snider, born and raised in Washington, DC, who had never seen a hockey game until his adult years when a friend took him to a game at the old Madison Square Garden, pressed on when one loan officer not attuned to the sport looked him in the eye and said “I don’t think soccer is going to …
