Coyotes acquire Chris Pronger's contract

The Phoenix Coyotes need to reach the cap floor, so they’ve come up with a creative way to do so. Today, they’ve traded Sam Gagner and a conditional draft pick to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Nicklas Grossman and the contract of Chris Pronger – and no, that last bit is not a typo. Pronger currently works for the NHL, but he hasn’t technically retired, as he’s...

Philadelphia Flyers and the 29th pick

As we approach the NHL Draft, I am discussing the potential players the Flyers may pick in the first round. In a previous article I talked about the Flyers selecting the BPA in the Draft and who they should select with their first pick at 7th overall (link for that article is here). In addition to the 7th overall pick, the Flyers possess the 29th pick, which was acquired along with...

Philadelphia Flyers and the 7th overall pick

The 2015 NHL Draft will set the tone for a new era in the Philadelphia Flyers organization. General Manager Ron Hextall has begun shaping the team in his own vision, with key moves like hiring his own choice head coach Dave Hakstol.

Philadelphia Flyers: in search of a backup goaltender

The 2014-2015 season was an interesting season for the Philadelphia Flyers in net. On the one hand, the Flyers enjoyed a terrific performance from Steve Mason as the Flyers starting goaltender. Mason went 18-18-11 while posting a 2.25 GAA and a .928 save percentage (third among all goaltenders with 50 games played). However, Mason was injured a few times throughout the season, and...

Trading Vincent Lecavalier may be tough for Flyers

Vincent Lecavalier has made off like Scrooge McDuck over his career. The former first overall pick inked a massive 11-year, $85 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning back in 2009-10, and was subsequently bought out via the teams compliance buyout just four seasons later. The move put Lecavalier on the team’s payroll until he’s the tender age of 47. When he hit free agency...

3 Free Agent Targets for the Flyers

View image | gettyimages.com It’s no secret that the Flyers have little flexibility, with their salary cap issues and locked up bad contracts. In my opinion, it is highly unlikely that nonproducing players like Lecalvier and Read be moved this offseason, so free agent veterans will likely not be on the Flyers’ roster next season. However, if Ron Hextall pulls off a miracle...
