  1. Giroux: Flyers will ‘bring the fans back on our side’ against Penguins

    Oct 17, 2013, 4:54 PM EDT

    giroux

    With just two points in the standings, the Flyers are the worst team in the NHL seven games into the 2013-14 season. You can’t blame fans for being dismissive or downright pissed off with the direction of the franchise at the moment. Meanwhile, Claude Giroux is struggling to meet what are perhaps some unrealistic expectations…

  2. Video: Scott Hartnell goes from This Is 40 to parody web videos

    How the mighty have fallen. Scott Hartnell is still searching for his scoring touch on the ice—not to mention a little luck avoiding injuries. Hartsy has zero points five games into this season, and now he’s out for 2-4 weeks with an upper body injury. Just how bad have things gotten for Hartnell? Even his…

  3. Paul Holmgren admits Chris Pronger will never play again

    pronger

    By now, pretty much everybody was already resigned to the fact that Chris Pronger was never going to appear in an NHL game again. That much isn’t news. The Flyers finally acknowledging the elephant in the room on the other hand… In a story filed by Ken Campbell to The Hockey News, Flyers general manager…

  4. Just Ilya Bryzgalov hanging with the Blue Man Group guy

    We get some strange things in our inbox from time to time. This is certainly among them. The email read: Professional hockey player Ilya Bryzgalov was spotted enjoying Blue Man Group’s one year anniversary performance at Monte Carlo Resort and Casinoon Thursday, Oct. 10. Bryzgalov is a former Olympian, won the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in the 2006 – 2007 NHL…

  5. Broken Twigs: Culture changing and the FGSB Mailbag

    Paul Holmgren will not be fired this year so get used to it. Ala-kazam! You’re welcome. – – – – – – – - Mike Sielski’s not wrong, he’s just an asshole. Or to put more specifically, being an asshole about this. Far be it from me to defend poor MISTER Snider or Paul Holmgren…

  6. Video: Craig Berube tells Inquirer columnist Mike Sielski to ‘get lost’

    Screen shot 2013-10-08 at 11.22.07 PM

    You may not be familiar with Inquirer columnist Mike Sielski by name, but you likely remember him from Craig Berube’s introductory press conference on Monday. Sielski was the one who asked Ed Snider about the perception created by hiring someone like Berube, who was “steeped” in a Flyers culture “that hasn’t won a Cup in…

  7. Flyers players talk about Laviolette’s firing, Berube to try new lines and defensive pairings

    Oct 8, 2013, 5:32 PM EDT

    berube

    In the video above we have Cluade Giroux, Braydon Coburn, and Scott Hartnell discussing the departure of Peter Laviolette, who was ousted from his post as head coach of the Flyers on Monday. Obviously there are a lot of mixed feelings in the dressing room right now, but everybody seems to understand they weren’t getting…

  8. Peter Laviolette allegedly lost the locker room, then went the way of Ken Hitchcock

    Oct 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    USATSI_7225310_138566172_lowres

    Too much jam? Boy if this isn’t beginning to sound like Ken Hitchcock all over again. Hitch, you may remember, was fired just eight games into the 2006-07 season, after he had reportedly lost his locker room, particularly young building blocks like Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. Bob Clarke also resigned/was removed that day as…

  9. Want more Ed Snider? After press conference, he kept talking about this ‘disaster’

    Oct 7, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 1.51.35 PM

    Ed Snider caught plenty of attention with his combative attitude at Monday morning’s press conference and his insistence that the Flyers “don’t need a fresh perspective.“ But when the press conference formally ended, and when the media scrums began, that’s went the real fun started. We’ll get out of the way and let the quotes speak…

  10. Flyers Chairman Ed Snider: ‘We don’t need a fresh perspective’

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Ed Snider

    “We don’t need a fresh perspective” — Ed Snider And that line — more than any other from Monday morning’s press conference, maybe more than any line at any time — sums up the last 38 years of Philadelphia Flyers hockey. Craig Berube was officially introduced as the 18th coach in Flyers history on Monday,…

  11. Laviolette Fired: Flyers to introduce Craig Berube at 11 a.m. — Watch here

    It took all of three games. Peter Laviolette is out as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers. Craig Berube will be introduced as your new head coach in a press conference at 11 a.m. You can watch that press conference right here in the video window below: As you’ve all no doubt heard by now,…

  12. Danny Briere on Montreal’s win over Flyers: ‘I got them tonight’

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:45 AM EDT

    briere-mtl

    Not the start to the 2013-14 season the Flyers were hoping for. There weren’t many positives to draw on from the club’s 4-1 loss in Montreal on Saturday night. They didn’t get a lot of great scoring chances, not to mention had trouble generating much in the way of a sustained attack at all or…

  13. Why Jake Voracek wasn’t on the top line with Claude Giroux on Wednesday

    Oct 5, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    giroux-voracek

    If you were wondering why Jakub Voracek did not skate on Claude Giroux’s line in the Fleyrs’ season opener, you weren’t alone. Both CSN’s Tim Panaccio and Sam Carchidi for the Inquirer wrote about Peter Laviolette’s perplexing decision for Saturday, so while for all we know the arrangement was only for one game, the aftershock…

    Ilya Bryzgalov hasn’t made it all the way to the Tyson Zone, but there’s very little you wouldn’t believe about his future career prospects if you were only sold a good story. Working on confirming or debunking, but, word in Philly is Bryzgalov is about to sign an East Coast Hockey League contract in Las…

  15. Peter Laviolette will not be fired this year so get used to it

    Oct 3, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    vinny

    There are a lot of things that hockey analysts and announcers say that I think is just pure poppycock. They’re often too quick to run and hide behind their trusted clichés to try and explain things that deserve more in-depth attention. But one thing I do agree with is that a group of guys can…

  16. Lecavalier’s Flyers debut spoiled by Bernier, Maple Leafs

    lecav-debut

    It didn’t take long for new Flyer Vincent Lecavalier to make his mark in Philadelphia. As the final seconds were ticking down on the opening period of Wednesday night’s season premiere at the Wells Fargo Center, Lecavalier collected his first point in Orange & Black off of a sweet dish to Brayden Schenn to put…

  17. Are 2013-14 Flyers pulling in too many different directions?

    Oct 2, 2013, 4:09 PM EDT

    giroux-lecav-streit

    A new season is dawning for the Flyers, and with any new season comes hope. The road to the Stanley Cup Playoffs is a long one, and there surely will be bumps along the way, but if the Orange & Black can return to the postseason, anything can happen in the NHL. Are the Flyers…

  19. Peter Laviolette the odds-on favorite to be first NHL coach fired this season

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    lavvy

    If you asked Flyers chairman Ed Snider if head coach Peter Laviolette is on the hot seat, he would tell you unequivocally no. In fact, he did just that back in September, one day after the club opened training camp. “As far as Peter [Laviolette] is concerned, last year was an anomaly. He’s been a…

    hall-gill-flyers

    The Flyers had some hoops to jump through, but they managed to slip below the NHL salary cap just in time for Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline. With that hurdle cleared, the front office went back to work on adding the final pieces of the puzzle that is the club’s 23-man roster. They wasted no time…

    schenn-loss-3

    The Flyers wrapped up their preseason on Friday night with a slobberknocker in our nation’s capital. The Washington Capitals won the game 6-3, but the result was more of an afterthought than usual for a game of ice hockey in September. Zac Rinaldo was ejected midway through the third first period for elbowing Caps center…

    Part 1 – Does Jake Voracek Even Lift, Bro? Just because something’s been done before doesn’t mean you have to continue doing it. Those right-before-I-penetrate-you faces have got to go. You can open a game and recap things with actual on-ice footage. No one needs to see Zac Rinaldo all aroused and staring at on…

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ Instgram says this photo is worth 2,000 words, but there’s no sense in us spoiling them all for you. I’ll merely add that there’s a lot of sentimental rubbish out there, but this photo of a young boy and Scott Hartnell sharing a moment during the Star-Spangled Banner even brought a smile…

    That’s Claude Giroux’s sweater in his locker stall. He’ll suit up in a game on Tuesday night for the first time since the infamous pitching wedge incident, as the Flyers play their penultimate preseason game against the New Jersey Devils. Whether Giroux was going to skate—or should for that matter—was a topic of discussion all…

  25. After Matt Read Extension, Brayden Schenn the Only Young Flyers Forward in Need of Deal

    Sep 21, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Brayden Schenn, Matt Read

    There’s nothing overly provocative about the four-year, $14.5 million extension the Flyers finalized with Matt Read on Friday evening. For once general manager Paul Holmgren didn’t sign a player into his late 30s, so we can all be grateful for that. The hockey community seems to stand in agreement this is nice value for a…
