  • Philadelphia Flyers (HOME) 08 - 09

    Until the team turns it around we need a place to call home so here it is, they did make a blockbuster trade today with tampa bay.

    The Tampa Bay Lightning announced that the team has acquired centre Daniel Corso from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for right wing Darren Reid.

    Im sure everything will be ok now, we will go on to win the next 65 games to end the season first overall, and then proceed to go on and win the cup.

        I'm sorry to rain on your parade with that blockbuster, chad, but we had a much bigger one last year that most of the league is still pondering. We picked up the MIGHTY Jim Dowd. Still can't believe we let him go.

        I can't bash Dowd too much, he did well enough.

          wow, that was a blockbuster, ive actually heard of jim dowd, maybe i heard of him in that trade, i dunno.

          Anyhow the team is preping for saturdays game against buffalo, i can hardly wait, i only hope im home at 7 when it starts cuz by 7:05 it will be over. I for one am getting totally sick of the crappy starts followed by the team totally giving up. Even my wife comes by 2 seconds after the game starts and asks me how much im losing by.

              No real big surprise Chad. It was only a matter of time till this team crumbled. You have to expect a nose dive after a team drafts specific type players (huge, power forwards and defensmen) for the last 15 years and then the NHL wakes up one day and says, "I know, let's change all the rules to make the toughness disappear in the NHL and give the game to the speed skaters".

              Now, imagine if the NFL just decided in the off season to outlaw the "handoff". How would our Broncos fair?

              Anyway, this team needs to be gutted, and I mean from top to bottom. Trade Gagne, Forsberg, Richards, Nitty, Esche, Pitkanan, Kapanen, etc. Anyone who has any sort of value. Trade them all for draft picks. The blueprint is set. Suck for 5 years and aquire the #1 or #2 pick every year and draft skilled speed skaters. Pittsburgh and Washington layed the ground work. Let's follow suit. Our reign in the East is over.

                I think Pitkanen will be a very good player...Richards too, you should keep them. Get rid of the rest though, I agree.

                  You guys would give up on Gagne too? I know he's having a rough go this year but he was so great last year. And isn't he relatively young?

                    I believe his name has been mentioned in trade rumors....can't confirm it though.

                    I really haven't settled in on the NHL season yet (I usually don't till the Broncos are officially done) but this is looking like a very lean year indeed. Watched the game against Buffalo last night.....another loss, it was hard to watch. I think I can take the disaster better than most afterall, I am a Pirates fan.......I kinda sensed danger when Eric and Keith pulled the plug and now it's coming to pass. What happened to all the Phantom talent the team had poised to enter the NHL?

                    Where's the advil?

                      Gagne is the most valuable trading chip we have. Yes, I'd trade him in a heartbeat for the right deal. By time this team turns this thing around, he will be Lanny McDonald old. Same goes for Pikky and Richards. Sell sell sell!

                        Flyers name Holmgren GM for the season

                        http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=183853&hubname=nhl


                        "Paul has been working very hard and I felt that it was important at this time to provide him with some stability in his position which will help him with the tasks at hand," said Snider.

                        Holmgren was named interim general manager on October 22, 2006, replacing Bob Clarke who resigned. Prior to his promotion, Holmgren had served the last seven seasons as the team's assistant general manager. He was named to this position on June 14, 1999, after serving as Flyers' director of player personnel from August 6, 1997. He served over parts of two seasons as director of pro scouting after replacing Bill Barber as the Flyers' director of pro scouting when Barber was named head coach of the Hershey Bears on December 30, 1995. Holmgren rejoined the Flyers organization as a scout after being replaced as the Hartford Whalers' head coach on November 6, 1995.

                        Over parts of four seasons (1992-93 to 1995-96), Holmgren compiled a 59-93-14 record as head coach of the Whalers. He was re-appointed as head coach of the Whalers by team President and General Manager Jim Rutherford on June 28, 1994 after stepping down as the Whalers' head coach 17 games into the 1993-94 season to concentrate on his duties as general manager. He was named general manager and head coach of the Whalers prior to the start of the 1993-94 season. He was named head coach of the Whalers on June 15, 1992.

                        Holmgren served as Flyers head coach for four seasons (1988-89 to 1991-92), compiling a 107-126-31 record. He was named head coach of the Flyers on June 1, 1988, after serving three seasons as an assistant coach with the club. He was the first former Flyer to be named head coach of the team.



                        His international experience includes serving as general manager for the 2006 U.S. National Team for the IIHF World Championships, assistant general manager of the U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team that competed in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games and an assistant coach for Team USA at the 1998 Winter Olympic Games and at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey Tournament.

                        A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Holmgren retired from playing after the 1984-85 season, having recorded 144 goals and 179 assists for 323 points and 1,684 penalty minutes in 527 career regular season NHL games with the Flyers and the Minnesota North Stars. He was traded to the North Stars by the Flyers in exchange for Paul Guay and a third round pick in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft on February 23, 1984. Holmgren recorded 138 goals and 171 assists for 309 points and 1,600 penalty minutes in 500 games over parts of nine seasons with the Flyers (1975-76 to 1983-84). His 1,600 penalty minutes with the Flyers are second all-time in club history. Holmgren was drafted from the University of Minnesota by the Flyers in the sixth round (108th overall) of the 1975 NHL Entry Draft.

                        Paul and his wife, Doreen, reside in Somerdale, New Jersey. He has four children: Jason, Kirsten, Wes, and Greta.

                          The Anaheim Ducks made two deals on Monday, dealing Todd Fedoruk to Philadelphia for a fourth round pick and acquiring George Parros from the Colorado Avalanche for a second-round pick.


                          WOOOOHOOOOOOOO the fridge is back

                            The Flyers have jumped on the Ducks 5-2 in the first period. Forsberg has 1 goal & 1 assist and JS Giguere has been chased.

                            This is gonna be a wild one. Two periods to go.
