The Blank Check That Bounced

To say that Flyers fans are disappointed and downright pissed with the "Aggressive Retool" maneuvered by GM Chuck Fletcher early into this offseason... would be an understatement. Let's throw it back to January where the Flyers season had already been over for two months. Aiming to combat worries from fans near and far, a press … Continue reading The Blank Check That Bounced

Ron Hextall…Bad GM, Badass Goalie

It was recently brought to light that Ron Hextall made some very bad decisions as the Flyers General Manager. Do these bad choices truly tarnish his legacy as a goaltender? I understand cancel culture, and there are times when it is appropriate (yes,I am looking at you, Evander Kane...you and Burt's eyebrows) but I have … Continue reading Ron Hextall…Bad GM, Badass Goalie

Sandstrom’s Impressive Debut Not Enough to Keep the Sharks From Biting

The Flyers managed to steal a point in a back-to-back situation against the San Jose Sharks last night thanks to the terrific play of Felix Sandstrom in his NHL debut.

He apparently … Continue reading If Ben Simmons was a Flyer

Some very lucky fans were finally able to be in the Wells Fargo Center after a year; the tickets were expensive and hard to come by; I would have given just about anything to have that chance. Alas, I was … Continue reading Is Having Fans Back Really Good for the Flyers?

A Long Overdue Apology to Eric Lindros

Eric Lindros was on my mind yesterday, so much so that I called a co-worker Eric Lindros when speaking about him. In all fairness, his name is similar, he is a hockey player, and the co-worker I was speaking to was trying my patience at the end of the day, but 88 was on my … Continue reading A Long Overdue Apology to Eric Lindros

In Defense of Tuuka Rask, and the Flyers, too

The President's Cup winning Boston Bruins were eliminated last night. Normally I would be doing a dance of joy (OK, part of me still is), but since the Flyers face the same fate this evening, my joy is tempered. I logged into my social media accounts a bit late this morning, dreading the end of … Continue reading In Defense of Tuuka Rask, and the Flyers, too
