I’m a First time NWHL Viewer Who is Hooked and Ready to Learn

If this turns into some hockey confessional well then my name is Daniel, and I'm a first time NWHL viewer who is already hooked on the product. I don't really have an excuse for never watching the NWHL before. Outside of it being not easily accessible on TV and I'm someone who is a novice … Continue reading I’m a First time NWHL Viewer Who is Hooked and Ready to Learn

Offensive D-Men: Not Talking About Defensemen Who Play Offense Either

Chris Szagola / Associated Press The Flyers are off and running on the 2021 NHL Regular Season. The crowd-less, interdivisional, and shortened season certainly change the way the team must approach each and every game.

It’s More Than a Game, Ovi

A Keith Yandle Trade Isn’t About A Player, It’s About A Mindset

Last week, we broke down the news of the Florida Panthers and Philadelphia Flyers possibly being trade partners in a potential deal featuring Keith Yandle, and came to the conclusion that the trade wouldn't be beneficial as an addition to the Flyers roster. But the scenario has bubbled in my brain all week. The trade … Continue reading A Keith Yandle Trade Isn’t About A Player, It’s About A Mindset

“Man up, Patty”

Nolan Patrick scored a goal in the Flyers home opener on Wednesday, and the fans rejoiced. Since there were no fans at the Wells Fargo Center, the rejoicing was done on social media.
