Podcast Episode 59: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

On this edition of the Flyers Faithful podcast, Steve and Hal discuss the Flyers’ matchups with the Islanders, Bruins, and Capitals (this was actually recorded during the end of the Caps game).

A Song of Ice and Flyer

Game of Thrones returns to your television boxes and illegal pirated internet feeds tonight!

Definitive Defensive Deficiencies

There is nothing wrong with good news regarding the lockout; but if the season were to get underway soon, would you be comfortable starting the cup run with the defense as it stands today? It would seem that the thin blue line is unable to withstand any more big blows after losing Andrej Meszaros before the season began, and even after trading a young, talented winger in James van Riemsdyk for  defenseman Luke Schenn, the Flyers defense still remains anything but complete.

The Flyers as Assets: Part II

As we reach Part II of assigning value to the Flyers assets on the roster, things begin to get much more convoluted and less black and white. Last week I went into great detail breaking down the core pieces of the roster, but now it gets much more difficult. At this point, much of this becomes up for debate because certain teams always covet certain players over others, similar to how the Flyers seemed to have covet Luke Schenn before finally pulling the trigger to acquire him earlier this summer. That being said, there are still a lot of different …
