Friday Morning Fly By: Oh right, hockey games

Photo by Juan Ocampo/NHLI via Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Flyers news and notes… *The Flyers play tomorrow. Afternoon. Those games always go well. No one cares though, everyone is still talking about the press conference. One thing that still has people talking is this whole “core” thing. [BSH] *Part of that core, Sean Couturier and Ryan Ellis, are going to be a huge part of this team if Chuck’s doing a retool, so we uh... really need them to get better. All the way healed. [NBC Sports Philly] *Isaac Ratcliffe will make...

If that’s the Flyers’ core, then it’s more rotten than their franchise-record winless streak

If that’s the Flyers’ core, then it’s more rotten than their franchise-record winless streak

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Scott and Fletcher can’t truly believe that Ryan Ellis and Kevin Hayes are actually the core of the Flyers, right? There was plenty to take away from Philadelphia Flyers’ “midseason” press conference on Wednesday afternoon, but one key element seemed to rule above all else — the core. Flyers General Manager Chuck Fletcher sputtered around where the club is and how they got there while projecting a “run it back” attitude that was echoed by Governor and CEO of Comcast Spectacor Dave Scott, who cited Sean Couturier, Kevin Hayes, Joel...

They said a lot, none of the fanbase seems to be satisfied with any of it. But the headline? A retool, not a rebuild. [BSH] *Dave addressed the big glaring attendance problems... [NBC Sports Philly] *... both Chuck and Dave apologized for what this season has turned into... [Inquirer] *... and those are kind of the bigger bullet points. If you missed...

Fletcher focusing on ‘aggressive retool’ instead of potential rebuild

Photo by Carlee Calfee/NHLI via The Flyers GM doesn’t want this to be a long process. The Philadelphia Flyers are going to try to not be one of the worst teams in the league beyond this season. There is a certain word in that statement that is key, but the message was extremely clear when Flyers General Manager Chuck Fletcher and Governor Dave Scott met with the media on Wednesday: Retool, patch it up, fix what’s broken, but do not even think about this team heading into a rebuild scenario. “Everything is on the table, we’re going to try to aggressively retool...

Press Conference Reactions

Press Conference Reactions

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Presser Postgame 1/26 The Philadelphia Flyers trotted out their General Manager & President of Hockey Operations, Chuck Fletcher, as well as Comcast Spectacor Chairman/CEO Dave Scott, this afternoon for a state of the team address. Press conferences are often wastes of time, because a team’s brass will rarely say something you couldn’t have predicted ahead of time. Still, I was hoping to hear some semblance of a plan, some tiny acknowledgement that the franchise’s current direction has failed and a new path must be forged. What we got...

The Difficulty in Designing a Claude Giroux Trade

The Difficulty in Designing a Claude Giroux Trade

Photo by Kevin Hoffman/NHLI via There is interest, but it will be difficult for teams to make room. As was reported informally by Elliotte Friedman on his ’32 Thoughts’ podcast, and in his column of the same name, there is league interest in acquiring Claude Giroux from the Flyers. “During All-Star, expect Claude Giroux to sit down with his agent (Pat Brisson) to discuss his future. I think there are Avalanche players who’d love to have him. The question is if the organization decides that’s the move they need to make. The right-hand shot makes sense. But it...

Flyers reach new franchise record with 13 game winless streak

Flyers reach new franchise record with 13 game winless streak

Photo by Steven Ryan/ It can always get worse, apparently. Well, they’ve done it. With last night’s 4-3 loss to the Islanders, the Flyers reached a new franchise milestone, hitting a 13 game winless streak. We’ll let you sit with that one for a moment longer. Okay moving on. For a while, it really looked like the Flyers might just be able to pull this one off, holding on for a win and stopping this bleeding, as they not only scored the first goal of the game (a rare occurrence around here) but scored the first two and really leveraged their strong start into...

History made

Photo by Steven Ryan/ Postgame 1/25 Thirteen consecutive losses. On a night in which Keith Yandle played in his 965th consecutive game, passing Doug Jarvis and setting a new league record, the Philadelphia Flyers made franchise history, losing more times consecutively than any Flyers team has in the 54 seasons they’ve taken the ice. Philly dropped to 13-22-8 for the season following their loss to the New York Islanders, residing now in last place in the Metropolitan division, fourth from the bottom in the Eastern Conference, and sixth-to-last in the NHL, although...

Flyers 3, Islanders 4: Gerry Mayhew is only human, Flyers lose

Photo by Gregory Fisher/Icon Sportswire via Folks, he can only do so much. The bar has been lowered. The Philadelphia Flyers can now lose a game with a late-game collapse and just appear to not even attempt to get any shots on goal, and it could be seen as an overall positive experience. In this visit to the New York Islanders stupid UBS Arena, we had goals come from unlikely sources, a weird-ass goal from the captain, Justin Braun(???) score a goal, and some general competence. At this point, if you are invested enough to read a game recap of the Flyers’ 13th...

Preview: Flyers try to stop the bleeding on the Island

Dennis Schneidler-USA TODAY Sports Congrats to Keith Yandle, I guess. For the third time this season and the third time in eight days, the Flyers will face the New York Islanders in New York. The Flyers have a shot at franchise history tonight. The longest winless streak in team history is 12, but things are actually a little more muddled than that for two reasons: the NHL doesn’t count overtime and shootout losses in losing streaks, only winless streaks, and the franchise’s previous winless streaks include ties. The 12 game winless streak came in February and...

What we learned from the Flyers 3-1 loss to the Stars

What we learned from the Flyers 3-1 loss to the Stars

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Some observations for your morning... Kicking off the week on a not very high note! The Flyers had something of a rare Monday night game, still greatly depleted in their lineup, playing a defenseman at forward, putting a struggling offense against a Stars team that loves to stifle offense, and it went just about as well as you might have predicted. The Flyers put just one puck in the net, and it came from a centering pass that deflected straight in off of John Klingberg’s skate. It ended as a 3-1 loss, and that, for those keeping track at home,...

Can you Yandle another loss?

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Postgame 1/25 The most impressive streak in hockey continued on Monday night. No, it wasn’t Keith Yandle’s ironman streak reaching 964 to tie Doug Jarvis’ all-time record. It was the Philadelphia Flyers’ 12th straight loss. If you thought perhaps the official start of the second half of the season would bring different results than the first... lol! The Flyers played another boring game, gave up the first goal and ultimately lost 3-1 to the Dallas Stars at the Wells Fargo Center in front of a sparse crowd (14,868 announced, if you’re...
