La Tournée des Joueurs: A Dream for The Ladies

Ladies, if this NHL lockout is preventing you from seeing hot guys in hockey uniforms, do I have the thing for you: Max Talbot and Bruno Gervais’ La Tournee des Joueurs (The Players’ Tour), featuring the likes of Talbot, Carey Price, Kris Letang, Derrick Brassard, and the hottest hunk of all — Simon Gagne. Talbot and his BFF Gervais started this league to give back to the hockey fans in Quebec and allow them to see some of their favorite players playing, despite the lockout. But we all know the real reason the league was started — so as not …

Lockedupations

You know those polls at sporting events that they put up on the jumbotron where they ask the athletes what they’d do if they weren’t an athlete? We all laugh with glee at the thought of alternate universe Bernie Parent hosting a variety show or Dan Carcillo as a high school janitor. With a lockout looming on the horizon, Kim and Steve have speculated what the current Flyers will end up doing with no hockey to play.

The Flyers as Assets: Part II

That being said, there are still a lot of different …

Is Holmstrom ready for the big time?

Despite the fact that the revamped Flyers team of last season didn’t make it past the second round of the playoffs, they found success elsewhere — namely, the development of defensive prowess of a few of their forwards, such as Sean Couturier, Brayden Schenn, and Max Talbot. It’s no secret that the Flyers’ biggest concern right now is their depleted blue line, which is not expected to be nearly as skilled and effective as it was at the start of last season. But with some defensive-minded forwards up front, perhaps the need to improve the back end isn’t that necessary, …

Hockey Hilarity: Sweater Switch

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Something that happens quite often when players sign with or are traded to a new team is a change of the number that they use on their jersey. Last year, newly-signed Philadelphia Flyers forward Max Talbot had to wear the number 27 jersey as his regular number 25, yes the one he wore for the cross-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins, was taken by none other than the polarizing and now departed defenseman Matt …
