On Tuesday, the Flyers announced they’d agreed to terms on a contract extension for 22-year-old winger James van Riemsdyk, the second overall pick in the 2007 entry draft. The deal starts after the coming season and lasts for six additional seasons, with an annual cap hit of $4.25 million, meaning JVR is set to be under contract in Philly through 2017-2018.

The Flyers have everyone locally and around the league wondering what the 2011-2012 season will bring. There are plenty of new faces, guys most of us have barely seen play in live action, as well as a guy we’ve seen plenty of in Jaromir Jagr. We need look no further than these promo videos for the upcoming season to be reminded that this particular team may take some getting used to, but there’s a certain excitement in the unknown.

When we posted a picture and link to the Ilya Bryzgalov Tiger mask painted by Stephane Bergeron of La Griffe Originale, Level reader Bill commented that the people at Drummond Custom Airbrush in Bucks County were working on Bryz’s mask. I checked in with Drummond last week to see if this was the case, and they confirmed that they were indeed working on Bryzgalov’s mask.
On Monday night, @PuckDucky tweeted a picture she said was Drummond’s Bryzgalov mask (right), which appears to be adorned with some awesomely Philly-centric images. Drummond confirms that this is their mask, and we’re pretty eager to see the rest of this it.

Earlier Wednesday, the Flyers announced via Twitter that they had invited center Michael Nylander to camp on a tryout. Nylander, 38 (39 in October), hasn’t played in the NHL since the 2008-2009 season, when he put up some pedestrian numbers with the Washington Capitals (9 G, 24 A in 72 games). But, he has previously been a very productive linemate of new Flyer Jaromir Jagr on two different teams, which “partly” played a factor in the team’s decision to bring him in, said Paul Holmgren to Tim Panaccio.

InGoal Magazine posted a link to the site of Stephane Bergeron of La Griffe Originale, which appears to contain images of Ilya Bryzgalov’s new Philadelphia Flyers mask. Prominent on each side is a green-eyed tiger, whose stripes appear to have a tribal-tattoo-like quality. The ones on the face look kinda Tyson-ish… On the chin is his trademark “BRYZ,” And a Flyers logo adorns the space just above the cutout.

Mark Recchi was a helluva Flyer, one of the fan favorites of our lifetimes over his two stops with the team. Recchi retired after winning his third Stanley Cup, each coming with a different team, and all with a team that wasn’t the Flyers. So, while he earned the tattoo you’ll see in the video below, it stings us just a bit. OK, it stings a lot.

Yes, there were no games played in Philly sports yesterday or today. So we’re left with Evan Turner and JVR discussing manicures and pedicures on Twitter. On Saturday, Reemer was supporting soccer and today he’s getting behind male grooming. Oh how we long for the day of playoff beards. JVR tweeted this @ Evan Turner…

ESPN Page2′s DJ Gallo makes an argument for Philly over Boston as the “sports capital of the world.” Another guy argues that Beantown, with their plethora of championships over the last 10 years takes the crown, but that’s all in the past.
