There have been a lot of reports to sift through today, but none put a smile on our face like the prospect of keeping the most exciting Flyer in Orange & Black.
Via Ryan Bright at Philabright, we relay this report from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, who says the Flyers and Giroux are nearing agreement on an extension.
It's little more than a single line in an Ottawa newspaper, but it's news we've been looking to hear since the season began. Exhale that collective sigh of relief. If this report proves correct, we'll be staring at the ice with our jaws dropped for years to come.
In other news, the Flyers are off until Thursday, but are on their way to North Carolina a few days early to get in some team bonding. Head coach Peter Laviolette said they'll likely get some golfing in and added that his Russians are among the worst golfers on the team, which would make sense. Bob's muscle-memory reflexes prevent him from putting the tiny ball between the moving arms of the windmill.
