2021-22 Player Review: Carter Hart had it rough

2021-22 Player Review: Carter Hart had it rough

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via I feel bad for the guy. The Philadelphia Flyers had a nightmare season on and off the ice. Head coaching changes and attendance problems stemming from an apparent lack of direction and success to some poor production numbers on most accounts, the team was running against the wind. Of course, there were a few bright spots, as there usually are on any lousy team. One person who was hard to fault for this was the young goaltender Carter Hart. Before addressing Hart’s season, which would appear below average at first glance, I think it’s...

Photo by Steve Russell/Toronto Star via The Eric Lindros trade can rent a car and probably has two kids and a mortgage by now. It’s the 30th anniversary of the Philadelphia Flyers’ trade for Eric Lindros, so Steve takes a trip down memory lane about the player that got him into hockey and one of the biggest trades in NHL history. Ryan and Steve also look at another Evgeni Malkin cake, discuss Antonio Brown’s regret of not watching Antonio Brown, play “Guess the real CBS show”, and speculate about Rod Brind’Amour’s middle name.

2021-22 Player Review: Joel Farabee tried his best

2021-22 Player Review: Joel Farabee tried his best

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ He has much more he could offer, though. For Joel Farabee, expectations were admittedly high coming into the 2021-22 season. After all, his sophomore season proved to be a minor breakout for him – he finished the covid-shortened 2020-21 season by leading the Flyers with 20 goals, the second youngest player in franchise history to pull off such a feat. He was also one of the few of the younger players (which I tend to define as anyone under 25) to not backslide in his performance that season. It all pointed towards a sign that perhaps Farabee...

2021-22 Player Review: Owen Tippett Got A Taste Of What It’s Like To Be A Flyer

2021-22 Player Review: Owen Tippett Got A Taste Of What It’s Like To Be A Flyer

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Can the young forward find his place in the NHL here? A lot was made about Owen Tippett when he came over at the trade deadline from the Panthers in the Claude Giroux deal. It was a grind for the tenth overall pick back in 2017 to find a place on the Panthers roster, as he has been up and down from the NHL to the AHL most of his career. When he did get a chance to play in the NHL he struggled to produce and find consistency offensively. Now that he is with the Flyers the hope is that he will develop with the other young talent on the...

2021-22 Player Review: Patrick Brown Finally Got a Real Shot

2021-22 Player Review: Patrick Brown Finally Got a Real Shot

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ The 4th line center played with a lot of heart. Of all the bottom six to straight up fourth line forwards that the Flyers stuck in the lineup throughout the 2021-22 season, Patrick Brown could be considered one of the better plugs. After being claimed off waivers by the Flyers from the Vegas Golden Knights, Brown played over half a season’s worth of games for the Orange and Black, and put up triple his career total in points in that time period. However, given he had only tallied three NHL points prior, this becomes less and less glorious the...

2021-22 Player Review: Nate Thompson existed

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Veteran pivot won a ton of faceoffs and that was just about it. While there are a laundry list of reasons the 2021-22 Philadelphia Flyers were a dumpster fire, perhaps one of the biggest was a revolving door of a fourth line that was consistently caved in by opposing teams. Inked to a one-year, $800K deal to return to Philadelphia after a seven-game run in 2019-20, Nate Thompson was penciled into the fourth line to start the season for then-head coach Alain Vigneault. The 37-year-old came cheap for Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher during the summer and...

Photo by Codie McLachlan/ A bit of summer hockey on deck. At long last, World Juniors are here! After COVID complications led to the tournament being postponed back in December, we’re finally back with the rescheduled version. We’re starting from square one as far as the games go, it’s like the couple of games in December never happened. A clean slate! The Flyers aren’t as well represented as they have been in past tournaments, but they do have a few fun prospects to keep an eye on in this one. First up, Emil Andrae is captaining the Swedish team, and looks to...

2021-22 Player Review: Keith Yandle was a defenseman

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Sonk was fun, and then it wasn’t. On July 28th, 2021, general manager Chuck Fletcher and the Philadelphia Flyers brought in veteran defenseman Keith Yandle on a 1-year deal after his 7-year, $6.35 million contract with the Florida Panthers ended. After adding Ryan Ellis to the defense core only a little over a week before and Rasmus Ristolainen only days earlier, Yandle was a cheap, depth option and an easy add for a team looking to shore up the backend with a player in search of an impressive consecutive games record. Yandle played 77 games...

He, of course, achieved this statistic by only playing in five games total. The Flyers went 0-4-1 with Sandström in net despite his .910 save percentage and a 43-save performance in his NHL debut, an overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on New Year’s Eve eve. After that debut, Sandström went back to the AHL and didn’t resurface again until April. He allowed 3 goals on 33 shots in a...
