The morning after: Flyers @ Blue Jackets 10.25.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. The next part of this post is a metaphor for the effort that the Flyers showed last night:* They sucked. *Brian Boucher and Ville Leino aside. Some quick thoughts: What do Ville Leino, Blair Betts, and Scott Hartnell all have in common? They all have more goals than Mike Richards, Nikolay Zherdev, and James van Riemsdyk. Not only do the Flyers have one of the worst power plays (8.6%) in the league but they also score among …

Flight Plan: Week of 10.24.2010

Flight Plan is a new column that will take a more in depth look at the Flyers’ upcoming opponents every week here at Flyers Faithful. After winning their home opener, the Philadelphia Flyers were absolutely abysmal in two of the three losses against teams that had played the night before.

The morning after: Flyers vs. Ducks 10.21.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. In the four days that the Flyers were off, players were bag skated, the team worked on the power play, and they had plenty of time to rest so that they could come out hard against the Anaheim Ducks, a team that stumbled out of the gate this season. Much like the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins this past Saturday, this win was there for the taking and the Flyers did not grab it. Instead, they dropped …

Five questions: Of the Flyers that had a down season which, if any, will rebound?

Flyers Faithful asked Sarah Baicker from CSN Philly, Anthony SanFilippo from the DelCo Daily Times, Geoff Detweiler from Broad Street Hockey, and our very own Nina G five questions about the ’11 Flyers’ season. We are very grateful that they took the time to share their opinions and predictions with us. Each day of this week, we will run the answers to one of those questions. Today’s question is: Of the Flyers that had a down season which, if any, will rebound? Sarah Baicker: My vote goes to Danny Briere, who as we all know, had a disappointing regular season …
