Top 3 All-Time Flyers Goalies

While most jokes about the Philadelphia Flyers are aimed at the guys who play between the pipes, the Flyers actually have a rich history of goalies. Unfortunately, for recent teams — or even the teams of the ’90s — those goalies played, for the most part, in the ’70s and ’80s. The three best goalies […] The post Top 3 All-Time Flyers Goalies appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Philadelphia Flyers Winter/Spring 25 Under 25: No. 1

Philadelphia Flyers Winter/Spring 25 Under 25: No. 1

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via We are all Oskar Strong. Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom was diagnosed back in December with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. In the months since then Lindblom has been fighting the disease, and the Flyers and really the entire NHL has come together to show their support for him. When we first began this exercise, our staff came to agree on a couple of things. One, it does none of us any good — nor would it be in the slightest enjoyable — to try and guess how Lindblom’s fight with cancer will affect his hockey-playing career and how the...

YELLING ABOUT bad takes and Candian mockumentaries

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Kelly joins Bill for a civil debate podcast YELLING ABOUT SPORTS is back again, with Kelly Hinkle opposite me this week. Honestly, it’s tough to do a contrarian show with Kelly, because she and I agree on so many things, but we found a couple points of contention to debate. Plus, plenty of niche Canadian television comedy talk. Claude Giroux as an underrated Philly athlete sets the stage for a chat about players whose hype we bought way too hard, and the embarrassing old takes to match. But don’t think we did a show together and didn’t talk plenty...

The Flyers, Tom Bladon & an Incredible NHL Record

The Philadelphia Flyers squared off against the Cleveland Barons on Dec. 11, 1977. On that day, history was made. The Flyers routed the Barons by a score of 11-1. Though the whole team played a part in the drubbing, defenseman Tom Bladon stole the show with four goals and four assists. He became the first […] The post The Flyers, Tom Bladon & an Incredible NHL Record appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Chuck Fletcher has taken the Flyers to the next level and could win GM of the Year

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Fletcher has turned the Flyers into a real contender, and that shouldn’t go unnoticed around the league. On Monday, we looked at the moves that Chuck Fletcher made in June to pave the road for the Philadelphia Flyers’ success this season. While those are the headliners, he has also made minor additions and subtle moves to help build upon that. First and foremost, it didn’t take long for Fletcher to find a new head coach. Less than a week after the season ended, Alain Vigneault was under contract as the head coach of the Flyers. AV has a track record of...
