  7. Set It in Motion: Its the Next Movement

    Feb 25, 2007, 10:03 AM EDT

    The Flyers continued the youth/salary dump movement last night, when after losing to a tired Maple Leafs team, they traded veteran D Alexei Zhitnik to Atlanta for developing prospect D Braydon Coburn. Coburn was the 8th overall pick in the 2003 draft, and he’s a blueline giant at 6’5” and 220. Zhitnik is a solid…

    (Note: We don’t usually provide much discussion on cycling, as we know most of you don’t really care, and there’s rarely a Philly connection. But it’s the cold middle of a dead winter in Philadelphia sports, and Floyd is of course from Pennsylvania, so here’s a rundown of Matt P’s thoughts on the latest chapter…

    The Sixers won a tight game on Saturday night against the Memphis Grizlies.  Andre Iguodala hit a jumper while time ran out to give the Sixers the go ahead bucket.
