Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via In which the gang takes a long look at the back end of this team.  Things are going super well for the Flyers at the moment, so the gang takes the opportunity to take a look at the defense. What’s good (Phil!), what’s bad (Braun? maybe?), and how Carter Hart has saved our lives. The Morgan Frost question also comes up, which leads to a discussion about the makeup of the top lines and how we might improve them, if we could.

Philadelphia Phillies: Does MSM set the Phillies targets?

Accepted opinion can drive notions about what should happen this off-season; the Phillies should think outside that particular box. Assuming you all “get” the use of “MSM,” the question Philadelphia Phillies fans want answered reasonably quickly is whether or not the team management will properly augment the team the organization began to build last winter.

A statistical analysis of just how good the Sean Couturier line has been

A statistical analysis of just how good the Sean Couturier line has been

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The Flyers’ trio hasn’t just been good, they’ve been arguably the best line in hockey. One of the biggest reasons for the Flyers’ hot start to the 2019-20 season has been the play of the Sean Couturier line. He, along with Oskar Lindblom and Travis Konecny, have been one of the better lines in hockey as we approach the quarter-way mark of the season. Lindblom and Konecny are having breakout seasons, and Couturier is continuing to be one of the most underrated centers in the league. It was at first a questionable move on head coach Alain...
