2018-19 Player Review: Will the real Shayne Gostisbehere please stand up?

2018-19 Player Review: Will the real Shayne Gostisbehere please stand up?

We’re gonna have a problem here. If history tells us anything, an uneven 2018-19 season from Shayne Gostisbehere will lead to a massive 2019-20 campaign for the dynamic defender. But therein lies the main problem with the man they call Ghost to date in his NHL career: consistency. Since breaking in with the Flyers full-time in the 2015-16 season, Gostisbehere has posted point totals of 46, 39, 65, and 37. While the biggest gap in production has been his 2017-18 and this past season, it highlights just how dynamic Gostisbehere can be and among of of the NHL’s best offensive defenders...

2019 NHL Draft Profile: Philip Broberg may not be the flashy pick, but could be the right one

2019 NHL Draft Profile: Philip Broberg may not be the flashy pick, but could be the right one

The 17 year old Swedish defenseman skates like a gazelle, but can that overcome his decision making offensively? With the promotion of Philippe Myers late this past season, the Philadelphia Flyers’ defensive prospect pool has taken a significant hit. With essentially all of the Flyers’ best defense prospects already in the NHL, the need for defense has intensified. The man that could fill that need is the Swedish born defenseman Philip Broberg. He may not be the pick that turns heads, but he could be the pick that makes the most sense for this hockey team. The question is, will his...

2019 NHL Draft Profile: Trevor Zegras, a two-way forward with exceptional skating ability

Another American could crack the top 10. The US National U18 team has a lot of really good prospects this year with the likes of Jack Hughes and Cole Caufield leading the way. Another really good prospect is the Bedford, NY native Trevor Zegras, who is projected to go early in the first round. Lets have a look and see if he could be someone the Flyers might have interest in for this upcoming draft.

2018-19 Player Review: Radko Gudas brought some consistency

2018-19 Player Review: Radko Gudas brought some consistency

And also a little bit of murder... We’ll get right to the point on this one: it was a season full of weirdness and inconsistency on the Flyers’ blue line, but Radko Gudas proved to be an exception to this. Indeed, he was one of their most consistent defensemen, if not the most consistent, full stop. He wasn’t always their flashiest player (and we don’t always like him when he is), but Gudas was able to bring a level of stability to the team, and performed well in the role he was given. By The Numbers Not a bad stat line here, all in all. We don’t really expect Gudas to be an...

2018-19 Player Review: James van Riemsdyk proved to be worth every penny

2018-19 Player Review: James van Riemsdyk proved to be worth every penny

In his return to Philadelphia, the power forward was exactly what this Flyers team needed on offense. In his first stint in Philadelphia, James van Riemsdyk failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon him as the number two overall pick. In his return to the Flyers this season, he lived up to the expectations and posted a strong yet injury shortened campaign. The forward proved to be the goal scoring medicine for a team that desperately craved a pure goal scoring winger, and should continue scoring for years to come. By The Numbers JVR went down after just the second game of...
