On Brayden Schenn and concussions

Flyers forward Brayden Schenn took a tremendous hit from the Capitals’ Tom Wilson in a recent game that knocked Schenn out of the game and resulted in Wilson being booted. Wilson launched himself into Schenn like a missile. If there wasn’t intent to injure on that hit, you could have fooled me.   It came out yesterday that Schenn is feeling pretty well, other than a stiff neck. Sure, no big deal. He’s going to play in tonight’s game against the Blue Jackets! Flyers doctors said he was good to go without a baseline concussion test. No harm, no foul, …

His leadership and post as the commander of the Flyers epitomized the hard-nosed, blue-collar spirit that Philly holds dear. Big-bodied centers with good hands and a strong hockey I.Q. are not easy to find. That’s why there is only one Keith Primeau. But a young, 6’5” 210-pound center from the province of Quebec may be developing into a Primeau-eque mold. Frederik Gauthier hails from the …

Breaking down the Bullies: Comparing down years

The Flyers aren’t a team that gets too comfortable outside of the playoffs. Sitting with less than a 10 percent chance of qualifying as of today, this might be just the second time since 1994 that they miss the postseason. When you compare the two teams, the amount of similarities makes you wonder if maybe we should have seen this coming. It starts from the beginning with the lack of identity and definition. During the 2006-07 season, the Flyers went through a lot of turnover due to a lack of early success and off-season change. They lost two big pieces …

Review: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly: Philadelphia Flyers

I finally finished it. If you’re the type to keep track, I believe I started this sucker sometime this past August. Then we had that event that must not be named and the book got put to the side as I took a break from Flyers Faithful because for me, no Flyers to watch was a major block on my writing inspiration. But when I boarded the plane to go to Philadelphia on Valentine’s Day, I grabbed my Kindle and pulled it up because I was determined to finish it. So, here we go: The Good, The Bad, & The …
