    The NHL is expected to approve ads on helmets for the upcoming season.

    With no fans allowed in most arenas, at least to start the season, the NHL is looking at any way they can improve their revenues and having ads on helmets will certainly help. Teams apparently will be allowed to use one logo for home games and the option of using one for away contests but  will not be able to change throughout the season. This will definitely bring a different look to NHL games.

Flyers should have signed him when he went off to Dallas.   It was more money than they were prepared to pay obviously, but when you have a bunch of kids in the room, you want an old guy who, on his first day with his new club, says: "I want my own key to the gym."   I'm sorry, but you sign that guy.

Lol, have you met Flyer fans before?   You are an excellent new addition. I certainly appreciate the level of engagement and the contests and such. Some of the Flyer fans here literally go back decades (on other forums), but we don't always agree on everything. Except for booing Santa. That we all agree on.

What's considered blowing up though? IF we're talking about moving Voracek and van Riemsdyk, there are numerous players who can fill their roles. For instance, if JVR is moved, there's still Giroux on the top left side, Lindblom can move along side Hayes and then Farabee fits in on the third line. That leaves the fourth line open, where Raffl remains. As for the right side, if Voracek is moved, Konecny slides into the top role, NAK moves into the 2nd line spot with Hayes, and then third line, yo

NHL Schedule Tomorrow

 

Meltzer's report today - 

 

Synopsis:

 

NHL Schedule released tomorrow (Dec. 23). Reduced travel as needed during the pandemic.

Teams will often play back-to-back games in the same city with the same opponent. That means back-to-back games, on back-to-back nights.

 

There will be road trips and homestands with opponents from the shortest possible travel times between locales; for instance, the Flyers may play the Islanders, Rangers and Devils on the same road trip. 

 

- - - - - - - 

 

That means back-to-back games, on back-to-back nights, with the Pens and the hated Sidney Crosby and Malkin. WAR.

 

It will be a fun season. This Flyers team is a very good team. Perhaps a SC contender this abbreviated 56-game season. 

 

It will be a grueling season schedule, and teams with younger players and players in excellent shape will have an advantage stamina wise - - a plus for our Flyers. And, we should have a good 6-player Taxi Squad which will be a big plus because of our Flyers having one of the best NHL Prospect Pools.

Flyers TV pre-game and post-game analyst was laid-off today as part of NBC Sports - Philadelphia's massive layoff program and part of nationwide cuts by parent company NBC Universal.

 

Therien was very good in that role and popular. Freelancer, aging Al Morganti, will now fill that role (cheaper but not nearly as good as Therien). Sad.

@mkscrewy

 

Taryn Hatcher and Katie Emmer survive the ongoing shakeup at NBC Sports - Philadelphia in their roles with Flyers broadcasts.

 

It's the recent times industry focus on young female TV personalities, and their presentation, that sells, as determined  from focus group studies.

Included in an article today is this question:

 

Is playing all games in the division an advantage for the goalies or the forwards?

 

Anyone want to take a guess at the answer?

I get they need to make some cash, so I'm ok with ads on the helmets for this season....as long as they promise to take them off next. But I can just see it...once Bettman gets his greedy little paws in the door he'll be putting them on jerseys next. 

 

In all the years I've been watching hockey, I can honestly say I only recall ONE product that's been advertised on a hockey uniform. And I never rushed out and bought a Skoda.

Nashville Predators advertising Bridgestone. Agree, it's entirely inoffensive compared to some of the gaudy European helmet ads.

RE: adds on gear

The dead owl and I don't give a hoot.

 

I don't like the look of the European league teams that have every square inch of space jammed with adds.

But I'd get used to it.

 

A patch on the breast plate and or sticker on the helmet won't distract from my enjoyment of the game.

ymmv

UPDATE TO NHL OFF-SIDE RULE

 

Beginning in the 2020-21 regular season, a player's skate will not have to be in contact with the blue line in order to be on-side.

 

Excellent video to demonstrate the Rule change:

‘I’m Back’: NHL Allows Gritty To Be Inside Wells Fargo Center This Season For Philadelphia Flyers Games

 

By Matt Higgins
CBS Philly
December 23, 2020

 

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The National Hockey League has righted a wrong. Beloved mascot Gritty will be allowed at the Wells Fargo Center this season for Philadelphia Flyers games.

 

“I’m back,” Gritty said in a statement.

 

Fans will be prohibited from going to games when the season begins due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Earlier this week, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman revealed the NHL will start the 2021 season on Jan. 13, but mascots were not included in his announcements. As we all know, barring Gritty from Flyers games is like telling Santa Claus he can’t deliver presents to children for Christmas.

 

Due to the outcry, Gritty created a petition for the NHL to allow him inside the arena for Flyers games.

 

“Without me, where is the joy? Where is the artistry? Where is the downright tomfoolery that delicately balances with the on-ice battles and displays of athletic prowess? One cannot simply exist without the other,” Gritty’s petition reads. 

 

“I promised the world at the brink of quarantine that I would be the orange light of hope and those plans haven’t changed. As a mascot, I have a duty, a responsibility, and I simply ask that you open your hearts to grant me permission to do what I love for the sport you all love. Let’s get weird.”

 

But now, the league has obliged and will allow Gritty’s shenanigans and tomfoolery to commence at Flyers games.

Wow! What a grind!

 

Good that our Flyers have many young players with young legs and stamina. (This grind is even more of a reason that JVR will be minimized, if here.)

 

And, the 6-player Taxi Squad is to the Flyers advantage with good talented young depth.

 

And, WAR with the Pens and Crosby/Malkin as we play them back-to-back 4-times. Animosity pent-up and violently released with only a day between games.
