BSH reacts to the Flyers’ farm system ranking

BSH reacts to the Flyers’ farm system ranking

Injustice is afoot! We are deep in the summer, and deep in our favorite time of year: list season. Well, maybe favorite is a bit of an overstatement. The lists don’t usually wind up being things that we love, but rather vehicles for us to get Mad Online. And maybe that’s what we love. I don’t know. I don’t know your life. Anyway, we got a new list today! A ranking earlier this month had the Flyers with the second best farm system in the league, and it seems we have a rebuttal. Corey Pronman over at The Athletic’s been working through his ranking of NHL farm systems over the past...

No. 12: How will Wade Allison bounce back after his injury last season?

No. 12: How will Wade Allison bounce back after his injury last season?

We’re talking cawlidge hawkey! One step closer to the top 10 in our countdown, Western Michigan star Wade Allison comes in at number 12. Ever since Jeff Carter was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets in the wacky, wild, franchise history changing summer of 2011, Flyers fans have begged for a pure goal scorer. Although I’m not sure if Allison has the capabilities to become Jeff Carter, he sure as hell has the skill set to be the kind of sniper Flyers fans are craving. Before tearing his ACL in mid January, the star winger was possibly on his way to a Hobey Baker trophy-winning season as...

Philadelphia Flyers Legends Profile: Dave “The Hammer” Schultz

The Philadelphia Flyers of the late 60’s and early 70’s were known as The Broad Street Bullies. Dave Schultz, known as “The Hammer”, was a big reason for that team nickname. The Philadelphia Flyers won back to back Stanley Cups in 1973-74 and 1974-75. They were far from a finesse team. Rather, the Flyers steamrolled their opponents and […] Philadelphia Flyers Legends Profile: Dave “The Hammer” Schultz - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Claude Giroux given 25/1 odds to win Hart in 2018-19

Claude Giroux given 25/1 odds to win Hart in 2018-19

Because of course Following a season where he had the most points for any player on a playoff team and failed to be named a finalist, it shouldn’t come as any surprise Claude Giroux is entering the 2018-19 with fairly low odds to be named the league’s MVP. The Bovada MVP odds came out today, and the Flyers’ 102-point center-turned-left winger has 25-to-1 odds to win the award. He is tied with Brad Marchand, Steven Stamkos, and Vladimir Tarasenko with the 13th-best chances to bring home the award. Here are the Bovada MVP odds for the NHL 2018-19 season. Gimme Stamkos at 25-to-1 all...

Flyers lose rights to Terrance Amorosa

Flyers lose rights to Terrance Amorosa

The 2013 5th round pick was not tendered an ELC by the Flyers and becomes an unrestricted free agent. Today was the deadline for the Flyers to sign 2013 draft choice Terrance Amorosa to an entry level contract. That did not happen and the Clarkson University defenseman’s NHL rights will be lost by the team. Amorosa is a smooth skating defenseman with decent size (6’1” 185 lbs) who was a solid collegiate player, the Flyers drafted him out of the Holderness School in the fifth round. Given the depth of the Flyers system, as well as the fact that they currently have 48 contract slots...

No. 14: Can Rubtsov put the pieces together?

No. 14: Can Rubtsov put the pieces together?

The going has been tough lately for the Flyers’ 2016 first-round pick. We continue through our 25 Under 25 rankings, and arrive at one of our more polarizing cases. German Rubtsov has had a strange and complicated go of things since entering the Flyers’ organization, and has faced more than a little bit of ire—deservedly or not—for it. Expectations remain high for the 2016 first round pick, and a lot of questions remain as to just what his ceiling might be, and how soon we might see him making a jump to the next level. After entering the QMJHL and joining the Chicoutimi Sagueneens...

Can the prospects avenge last year’s overtime loss?

The teams will square off at 6 p.m. at the Isles’ practice rink in East Meadow, New York.

Flyers have 17 games on NBC networks this season

Generic line from Seinfeld or Friends The NHL on NBC schedule was released today, and as usual the Philadelphia Flyers will be on the network quite a bit over the course of the regular season. Throughout the plethora of games NBC and NBCSN will show over the course of the season, the Orange and Black will be on one of the NBC networks for 17 of their 82 regular season games this season. Games on Wednesday night will remain a key piece of the NBCSN routine, but it will be a little different (improved?) this season. Instead of Rivalry Night, where meetings between the Buffalo Sabres and...

Philadelphia Flyers 25 Under 25: The wait for Samuel Morin continues

Philadelphia Flyers 25 Under 25: The wait for Samuel Morin continues

But the payoff could be...huge. It seems like we’ve been waiting on Samuel Morin forever, doesn’t it? Well, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer thanks to a torn ACL that will keep him out for the bulk of the 2018-19 season. Morin, who just turned 23 in July, injured the knee in the Phantoms’ five-overtime marathon playoff game in the spring. It was the cap on a lost season for the former first-round pick, who played just 20 total games between Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia due to a variety of injuries. But despite the lost season, there’s still plenty to like and project...
