Welcome back to the Flyeround! After missing last week because I was too lazy to type it up, we’re back in a big way. We have new writers, and with that new articles and ideas. Check out the latest here at Pod Street Bullies and catch up on what you might have missed over the last week with this week’s Flyeround.
The Flyers swept their two games against the New Jersey Devils earlier this week. Read all about it from our guy Matt Hoagland and new writer John Scola.
We have a couple of pieces here dealing with players on the Flyers. First comes Claude Giroux. Our guy John S., now that we have multiple John’s, gave us a player spotlight piece showcasing Giroux’s career to this point. Check it out right here.
The second player-centric piece comes from Derrik who details Shayne Gostisbehere’s road to redemption. After a few stints last season where he looked good and it quickly faded, Derrik takes a look at whether Ghost can stick and how bad the Flyers need that to happen right now.
Another couple of pieces, this time centering around trades and trade speculation. The first piece comes from Hoagie, as he details some targets on the blueline that the Flyers should look at if they’re looking to improve the defensive unit.
