November No Mo

From its perch in the steel and glass canyons of midtown Manhattan, the National Hockey League announced the cancellation of its 2012-13 regular-season schedule for the entire month of November on Friday. “The National Hockey League deeply regrets having to take this action. By presenting a proposal to the NHLPA that contemplated a fair division of revenues and was responsive to Player concerns regarding the value of their contracts, we had hoped to be able to forge a long-term Collective Bargaining Agreement that would have preserved an 82-game Regular Season for our fans.

A Video Diary: G being G

I miss hockey. I know it can be found all around me, but I miss it in its most elite form, embraced by the casual independent and celebrated on televisions and in various media formats across the globe.

Stand up in the circle, announce your first name and last initial, and say you’re an addict. Wait for the affirmation, because it’s there. Darth Vader himself, Gary Bettman, goes on record in making a conciliatory overture to the players which involves a seductive come-on to get the deal done and play a full season.

Sean Couturier has room to grow in many areas

The Lockout – Who wins, who loses?

Now that games have officially been cancelled, it’s no longer possible to think of the Flyers roster as a whole. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of room to speculate how the time away from the Wells Fargo Center will affect each individual piece of it. So who stands to benefit the most and the least from the lockout on the Flyers roster? Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn A package deal based on their status amongst the Flyers forwards as baby-faced rookies, these two budding forwards actually might be able to gain a lot from their time in the …
