The early part of the season has had its ups and downs for the beloved Flyers. We have seen some really good play coming from Travis Konecny and Oskar Lindblom. Other than those two, we have yet to see consistency throughout the lineup. This is my opinion as to how I would improve the Flyers […]Read more "Flyers Arm Chair GM – What the “Dope” would do."
In 2015, Shayne Gostisbehere took the NHL by storm. The Flyers’ young defensemen showed a gifted offensive awareness from the blue line. The Flyers selected Ghost 78th overall in the 2012 NHL draft, becoming the first NHL player who was born and raised in South Florida. During his rookie year, Ghost set a rookie record […]Read more "Can Flyers’ Shayne Gostibehere get back to his best in 2019?"
The final cuts have come and gone. Youngsters made the team, others were sent up Route 476 to Allentown to play for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

It’s been an interesting six years since the Flyers selected Samuel Morin with the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NHL draft. Injuries, demotions, promotions, you name it. Morin has been through the ringer in his 6 years with the organization. This year is going to be difficult for the big man. The Flyers currently […]Read more "Is Samuel Morin destined for Flyers purgatory?"
With the Flyers blueline taking shape, things are becoming pretty clear. What’s not so clear is the Flyers plans for oft-injured defenseman Samuel Morin. With eight defensemen assumedly on the roster at this point, where does Morin fit? Chances are, he doesn’t. It’s not the worst-case scenario. Too often, Morin has been sidelined with an […]Read more "Flyers Contingency Plan for the Blueline"
Tuesday afternoon saw news break of Nicolas Aube-Kubel re-signing with the Flyers. His contract is a two-way contract, worth $700,000 in the NHL and $85,000 in the AHL. On the surface, this deal makes total sense. Aube-Kubel is coming off a season where he played 54 AHL games and tallied 30 points. He was the […]Read more "Nicolas Aube-Kubel’s Organizational fit with Flyers"
Chuck Fletcher made a plethora of moves on the opening day of free agency this summer. Those moves didn’t necessarily move the needle. Instead, it bolstered an otherwise depleted Lehigh Valley Phantoms roster. The Phantoms started July 1st with 4 defensemen under contract. When the day ended, they had double that amount. Not only did […]Read more "Taking stock of the goalies in the Flyers farm system"
