Glens Falls’ best hope for future is still to support the team it has now

When the Phantoms announced last week they’d remain in Glens Falls for another season, their release contained a caveat that struck an unusual note to those not attuned to the unique rhythms of the drawn out dance between city and team. Fairly high in the Phantoms’ statement, Glens Falls’ mayor Jack Diamond trumpeted the franchise’s pledge to step aside for parts unknown next season should another franchise pledge to move to Glens Falls. “Why announce that part,” the Flyers own inside reporter Anthony SanFilippo wrote on Twitter. “Doesn’t instill confidence for fans for next season.” That was a pretty typical reaction outside …

Flyers themed New Year’s Resolutions

The lack of NHL hockey has changed a lot of things for many folks, but it can’t change something as old as time. Though a 2013 season may not come to fruition, that doesn’t mean we don’t have room for some Flyers themed New Year’s resolutions for the organization and all those involved – and I can’t think of a better place to start then between the pipes.

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.

Wild Flyers: Giroud and Giroux

With the NHL Lockout having festered beyond reason, many have fallen into a routine of getting their hockey fix elsewhere. Unfortunately, this routine usually means just catching a game whenever we can just to take in the sport itself, leaving a void in your schedule where your Flyers fandom used to fill in the spaces between puck drops. Without a Flyers team to talk about, can a Flyers fan exist? The answer to that question is yes. If you’re anything like me, you find yourself seeing the Flyers spirit reincarnated in all sorts of things, whether it’s related to the …

What Are You Thankful For?

In a few hours, it’s officially Thanksgiving Eve (for those of you who aren’t working that is – everyone else throw your coffee in the air). Now is when we’re supposed to take the time to acknowledge what truly makes us happy. So when it comes to Flyers hockey, even though there isn’t much going on at ice level there is still one obvious question – what are you most thankful for? The beauty of something like this when it comes to the Flyers is that there are so many things that come rushing to your mind, like saliva to the mouth …
