Scott Laughton and a Flyers Call to Arms

While the title seems pretty serious, it's because it is. This won't be your typical meat-headed "we need goons" type of piece. This won't be a cry for the Flyers to start throwing their bodies around and hitting everything that moves. Really, it's a cry for help. It's a plea to show us that this … Continue reading Scott Laughton and a Flyers Call to Arms

The Flyers powerplay and its downward trend

Roses are red, violets are blue. When you commit a penalty, the Flyers won't score on you. At least they haven't been able to do that with any type of consistency yet this season. The most frustrating part is that they started out alright on the man advantage. As the season has progressed, so has … Continue reading The Flyers powerplay and its downward trend

Are the Flyers a different team in front of Carter Hart than Brian Elliott?

Surely it can't be true. How can the Flyers be a different team in front of one goalie compared to the other? Same forwards, same defense, there's no way, right? While it's hard to imagine the team is any different depending on who's in net for some, it's somewhat of a reality. It's not entirely … Continue reading Are the Flyers a different team in front of Carter Hart than Brian Elliott?

Flyers most valuable prospect trade chips ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline

Sure, it may seem a little early to talk about the trade deadline, and rightfully so. We're about a month and a half away from April 12th, and the Flyers could be in a completely different position than they are right now come that date. However, the sooner they make a move, the more likely … Continue reading Flyers most valuable prospect trade chips ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline

Flyers Should Bait the Predators into Making a Deal

With just under two months until the NHL trade deadline, things appear calm on the surface. With the situation surrounding COVID, salary cap implications and such, things may remain relatively calm even up until April 12th. While that's all well and good, the Flyers might not have that kind of time to bide until they … Continue reading Flyers Should Bait the Predators into Making a Deal

Oskar Lindblom and fans misguided anger

So let me preface this by saying one of two things. First, I wish nothing but the best for Oskar Lindblom and hope that his placement on the COVID protocol list is nothing but a precaution. Second, being placed on that list does not mean that the individual has contracted COVID. With that being said, … Continue reading Oskar Lindblom and fans misguided anger

Flyers ‘Next Man Up’ Mentality Must Apply to Benchings

We've heard about it all year. The "next man up" philosophy. When one man goes down, another steps up. We saw Morgan Frost slide in when Sean Couturier was injured. We saw Connor Bunnaman come in when Morgan Frost was injured. The phrase itself is perfectly indicative of the situation the Flyers were in during … Continue reading Flyers ‘Next Man Up’ Mentality Must Apply to Benchings
