Wednesday Morning Fly By: It’s like August around here

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Flyers news and notes… *It’s October, but we’re working with August-levels of hockey news. Everything is weird. Anyhoo, Ivan Provorov is psyched to be able to take on an even bigger role on the Flyers’ defense this season [Inquirer] *In case you missed it, the IIHF has released the schedule for the upcoming World Junior Championship. Truly the most wonderful time of the year. [BSH] *Charlie and his pals over at The Athletic have reevaluated the organization to come up with a...

Tuesday Morning Fly By: Oh look, a new thing

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Flyers news and notes… *Apparently the Flyers are getting a new jersey. Allegedly. The reviews, if one is to trust social media, are mixed. [Icethetics] *In actual Big News yesterday, Doc Emrick announced that he’ll be retiring. It’s going to be weird to never hear him enthusiastically telling us the time remaining in a period ever again. [BSH] *The official announcement of Doc’s hiring by the Flyers — way back in the PRISM days — was republished after the news broke, and...

New Flyers alternate jersey apparently leaks

New Flyers alternate jersey apparently leaks

Via Icethetics.com | Via Icethetics.com Better or worse than the Quakers fiasco from the Stadium Series? While we’re not totally sure just when the Flyers will be hitting the ice again, but whenever that is they could be sporting a new look on the ice — according to a noted uniform site. The good folks over at Icethetics.com are reporting on an interesting jersey concept that apparently has been in the works at the league office, and it’s called “reverse retro.” Two teams associated with the look already? The Flyers and Penguins through an unlisted EBay item that certainly...

Mike “Doc” Emrick announces retirement

Mike “Doc” Emrick announces retirement

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via A legend in the industry bids farewell. To many hockey fans of the 2010's, he was the voice of the sport, with his excitable flurries and iconic phrases near synonymous with the NHL, especially come playoff time. On Monday, Mike Emrick announced his retirement from broadcasting after nearly half a century in the industry, starting in 1973 when he began his first role with the Port Huron Flags of the now defunct IHL. In Philadelphia, many will remember Doc’s time as a spot announcer for Flyers’ broadcasts in the mid 1980’s, and he eventually was...

Meet the New Guy: Get to know more about Erik Gustafsson

Meet the New Guy: Get to know more about Erik Gustafsson

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via Here’s everything you need to know about the Flyers’ newest defenseman. There’s a new Erik Gustafsson in town, boys and girls. The Flyers signed Gustafsson — not to be confused with the Erik Gustafsson who occasionally played in Philly earlier in the decade — to a one-year contract worth $3 million. The 28-year-old defenseman saw a fair amount of success as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks the last few years, but his 60-point campaign during the 2018-19 season was easily his best campaign to date. So, what can Flyers fans expect from the...

Anyhoo, in good news, Nolan Patrick accepted his qualifying offer Friday! Here’s hoping the kid comes back and kicks butt next season. [BSH] *Let’s talk Flyers defense. As it is constructed right now, the Flyers’ D is kind of a weird mix, with no clear pairings. Interesting. [Inquirer] *It’s very likely that Chuck isn’t done, though. And with trade rumors flying about, it’s possible that he goes that...

Nolan Patrick accepts qualifying offer

Nolan Patrick accepts qualifying offer

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The young center is under contract for one more year. Forward Nolan Patrick has accepted the Philadelphia Flyers’ qualifying offer and will now be under contract for one year, at a cap hit of $847,125. Philadelphia tendered a qualifying offer to Patrick — along with Mikhail Vorobyev and Philippe Myers — last Tuesday and ten days later, the forward accepted it. Accepting the qualifying offer automatically results in a one-year deal that is 105 percent of their previous salary and cap hit. Patrick, unfortunately for him, has no leverage when it comes...

Can Jason Demers be Matt Niskanen’s replacement?

Can Jason Demers be Matt Niskanen’s replacement?

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The Arizona defenseman has been in rumors recently and rightfully so. It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Flyers are searching for a top-four defenseman to play on the right side of their blue line. A prototypical player that almost every single team in the NHL is looking for, but for the Flyers, this wasn’t something they set out to do this offseason, with months of planning. Last week, defenseman Matt Niskanen surprised everyone when he announced his retirement. Reportedly, the team and player met prior to the announcement, with the Flyers asking...

Maybe because it’s mid-October and in the Before Times we’d be starting a new season... who can say. Anyhoo, we’re probably going to have to wait longer than we originally thought for the new hockey season to kick off. [ProHockeyTalk] *We’ve talked a lot already about what is to be made about Chuck Fletcher’s relatively chill approach to this offseason, but it’s worth noting that by doing nothing he really is...

It’s a risk to not take a risk

The Flyers’ big acquisition of the offseason. | Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via To take the next step to get from where they were last season to becoming a perennial contender, the Flyers need some things to go right. How are they going to get there? This piece was going to begin with a bunch of paragraphs talking about the Flyers’ offseason, but if you’re here, there’s probably no need for that. You know what the Flyers have and haven’t done. Their big move so far has been the signing of no-not-that-Erik-Gustafsson Erik Gustafsson to a one-year contract, in a deal that...

Shayne Gostisbehere deserves another chance

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via A 60-point season, a large contract and a power play specialist walks into a bar. The Philadelphia Flyers are the most interesting team this offseason. Not for being a team going through a significant turnover, signing as many unrestricted free agents they legally can, or trading away some aging stars to kickstart a rebuild — instead, the Flyers are interesting for sitting still and making everyone confused. Just over a month removed from being tantalizingly close to their first Eastern Conference Final appearance since 2008, the Flyers are giving...

Three Questions about Erik Gustafsson

Three Questions about Erik Gustafsson

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ Just to get these thoughts in the open. On Monday, the Flyers announced that Erik Gustafsson (the latter Gustafsson, as I like to call him) had been signed to a one year, $3 million dollar contract. Welcome to Philly, @ErkanGustafsson! We've signed the 28-year-old blueliner to a one-year contract worth an AAV of $3.0M. https://t.co/CivbrJGkDq— Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) October 12, 2020 Our own Kyle Frey wrote of Gustafsson in our initial reaction to the signing: “Last season Gustafsson spent the majority of the shortened regular season in...
