  1. Bring back the Bullies. Pencil Cam Atkins with three fights this season, the juice in Philly will be strong this year.
  2. https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/flyers/flyers-re-sign-samuel-morin-1-year-contract Samuel Morin said he felt he was meant to be a Flyer. On Monday, he stayed a Flyer. The club re-signed Morin to a one-year, $750,000 contract extension. The 6-foot-6 defenseman was set to hit unrestricted free agency, which opens Wednesday at noon ET. Morin, a 2013 first-round draft pick, played a career-high 20 games last season. He started 2020-21 with a switch to left winger, but eventually moved back to defense and fared well. Injuries, including a pair of torn ACLs, limited him to
  3. At first glance this looks bad...very bad, at second look it feels boo'd, very boo'd. We're at a crossroads again. The team put themselves in it again. When we got Niskanin and Braun and brought in Pitlick and crew many of us where also bothered by Chuck's Choices and I was one who was concerned highly as well. I understood the GM's thinking on why he did it but thought he overpayed back then. Same as today. Fletch overpaid this time around but unfortunately he was cornered in his mind and that's when he gets into cap/asset problems. If the team played like pre-covid he wou
  4. Just for clarity in regards to Ghost clearing wavers. You don't acquire 4.5@2 year assets in the middle of a flat cap world year and following year AND Expansion Draft year "and" RFA/UFA year "and" what players are still healthy "and" the roster space/max signed players needed {Year In Business} Playoff [Hockey Operations] It's easy to view life from the perspective of a groundhog, but GM's are viewing things perched up from an eagles nest....
  5. Unless there is something in the works we don't know about.... This was a terrible use of assets and picks. We needed our 2nd round pick and assets(mostly picks) to use to get a sniper back, if we are trading Jake and a second for a sniper than now our first most likely has to be involved, where as are second was the turn in chip. We still had the Entry level draft to trade Ghost as we could of used him to trade down our pick to a team, that had some cap space. Ghost wasn't a direct cap issue just yet and at two years left wasn't a long contract to let go at trade deadline. Agai
  6. We will make the playoffs and win several rounds now that we have the mystery bauble new assistant coach.
  7. It might be a combination of his youth jersey? At first it looked perplexing but right after it reminded me of a Nascar race number(Ellis/Elliott) and to see it in home Team black with that number; him racing down the ice with that number, is gonna be bringing good vibes this season. On front crease toughness? I saw Morin clearing the front crease at times on his shift, but "mhorr" important I saw him thinking the game while he was doing it. Man it's too bad Myers wouldn't venture down that path before the whistle blew. He was solid after the whistle in clearing the porch,

Posted 20 hours ago https://www.crossingbroad.com/2021/07/after-adding-ryan-ellis-is-vladimir-tarasenko-next-on-flyers-gm-chuck-fletchers-to-do-list.html From Saint Hippo himself on a inside source: It was a perfectly played gambit by Fletcher. So, what’s next on the flow chart? Well, if you watched Fletcher’s interview with us (and if you haven’t, you missed a lot), then you’ll know that he’s talked to Seattle GM Ron Francis about “nine times.” leading up to the expansion draft. And Fletcher told us
  9. So I wonder what Ellis' Jersey number will be now that he's a Flyer? And will he get an A on it.
  10. Ya that pisses me off, can't be a bunch of pansies getting pushed around, that's why I was glad Morin was inserted back on Defense and though, I'm in the minority, I was rooting for Rinaldo to stay.(I don't subscribe to dirty hits/plays, but if you can lay the body clean, I'm all for it) when he was on the ice we where a positive momentum team and when momentum was shifting he brought it back, so hopefully at 13th pick, Chuck gets the "Right Stuff" guy, through pick or trade.

  12. Does anyone know the list Seattle picks in regards to which teams are 1 through 30 in order of picks? is it based off of draft order?
  13. I agree we should give our first round picks some more time, especially now that Fletcher seems to have focused on continuity in our farm and pro systems, having Lappy at least will keep the continuity there(on paper at least). I also believe they should pair players with their continuity in mind when they bring them up because it makes it allot easier when your familiar with the "system" but even more so when you know the "system" and "know" your partner. I believe that's why Morin and Ghost were an easy pair to put together, since they played with each other in the minors. May
  14. It's anybody's call and who knows what Ron Francis is gonna end up doing. Fletcher did ask RF if he wanted to think outside the box when it came to choosing which player they will pick or be helped to pick if other players are involved in trades to them or other teams. Fletcher gave some advance options that he would be willing to listen to for the mutual benefit of both teams. That was some high level out of the box thinking on Fletchers part and is encouraging to hear. Unfortunately this might include a first round pick for the rights to keep a player the Flyers could trade fo
