    Jul 24, 2011, 11:14 PM EDT

    Vincent Chase and Co. are back for their final season, and with them, the many cameos of Entourage. As we’ve seen in previous seasons, that can often mean some hockey players. In the preview of next week’s episode, Dan Carcillo’s framed Flyers jersey appears to be hanging in the agency office (behind Andrew Dice Clay, somewhat appropriately).

    Perhaps you remember the last quote-unquote Dan Carcillo appearance on the show? If not, here it is. Full jersey acknowledgement in the final season? Carbomb is moving up in the Entourage world.

  8. In Case of Taunting Flyers Fan: Break Glass

    Jul 14, 2011, 9:02 AM EDT

    It seems like a year ago that the Flyers were actually alive and well in the NHL playoffs, but some video we hadn’t previously seen has surfaced via the illustrious Puck Daddy vaults. Check out how Tyler Myers of the Buffalo Sabres responded to some pre-game jeering by a Flyer fan:

  11. Off the Beach: What You Missed

    Jul 5, 2011, 9:31 AM EDT

  12. Simon Gagne Joins Mike Richards in Los Angeles; Vokoun to DC for 1.5M

    Jul 2, 2011, 8:32 PM EDT

    Two former faces of the Flyers have today find themselves teammates again. After Simon Gagne was firmly asked to waive his no-trade clause last off-season, he was dealt to Tampa Bay, where he spent 2010-2011. This off-season, with a year left before his own no-trade clause kicked in, Mike Richards was dealt to the Los Angeles Kings. Now, Flyers nostalgists have another reason adopt LA as their Western Conference team this season. Already dubbed Flyers West, the Kings added another former Broad Streeter today, signing Gagne to a 2-year, $7 million deal. Meanwhile, Tomas Vokoun signed with the Washington Capitals for well below what most thought he’d fetch on the open market.

  13. Where’s Jagr? Hint: Not Pittsburgh

    Jul 2, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Whether you’re a fan of the Flyers signing Jaromir Jagr on merit alone or not, I hope you can at least derive some pleasure from the fact that the city of Pittsburgh had to cancel its Welcome Home parade for him. It’s a little funny to me to see how many hockey media personalities—not even just Pittsburgh folks—are treating Jagr as some sort of traitor in the wake of his signing with the Flyers. I guess that has more to do with his side not being perfectly forthright with the Pens, but when you look at the result, it’s hard to fault them. First of all, he’s been a Capital, a Ranger, and played in the KHL, then had multiple teams courting him the whole way back to North America. Second, the Flyers gave him $1.3 million more than the Pens reportedly offered. It’s kind of a no-brainer for the Jagr camp.

  14. Blackhawks Sign Dan Carcillo

    Jul 1, 2011, 7:18 PM EDT

    We knew Dan Carcillo was highly unlikely to be back in Orange & Black, and word’s just come over the wire that he has signed with the Chicago Blackhawks.

  15. Flyers Cont’d: Versteeg Traded, Leino and Boucher Move On

  17. Jaromir Jagr, Philadelphia Flyer

    Jul 1, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    After reportedly rejecting an offer from the Pittsburgh Penguins, legendary Czech winger Jaromir Jagr has signed a 1-year, $3.3 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.

  18. Let Free Agency-dom Ring

    Jul 1, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Well the hour is finally almost here. At noon today, the NHL will open free agency, which is a welcome relief for fans who have sifted through countless speculative reports ranging from ‘obvious maybes’ to headline-heavy/reality-light big-name web traffic grabbers. When summer started early for the Flyers, we gave the reasons we wouldn’t be getting too deep into all the possibilities, which can be summarized as: Through our many hockey hot stove seasons here in Philly, we’ve learned that (A) the Flyers are annually among the teams linked to nearly every available player, and (B) few people correctly predict the major moves they do end up making before their announcement. To try to address every rumor… It just seems like a waste of our time and yours. And this is coming from someone who knows how to waste some time.

  19. A Kings-Eye View on Simmonds and Schenn

    Jul 1, 2011, 9:21 AM EDT

We asked Rudy Kelly of Battle of California a few questions about Simmonds and Schenn, as well as for his thoughts on their new two-way stud center.

  22. Mark Howe Finally Gets His Hall of Fame Nod

    Jun 29, 2011, 9:21 AM EDT

    Yesterday, one of the greatest Flyers of our generation received acknowledgement as one of the greatest hockey players of any lifetime.
