Has anyone ever seen Rob Zombie’s version of John Carpenter’s Halloween?? He’d be the perfect guy to capture what Hockey and the Broadstreet Bullies were like during those days. With the game being so different today, it would be pretty cool to show the younger generation of fans how much he game has changed so much. In Joe Rogan’s interview, Rob Zombie still seems psyched to do make the movie (if given the opportunity by Flyers ownership). Like Joe Rogan said during his the interview, we should start a petition to ownership, to make this would be another Philly classic! #BroadStreetBullies #RobZombie #LetsGoFlyers
Any whispers about Kimo coming on board to coach ? Can't see how he could hurt our young D or the PK at all.
Guys I just saw that Ray Emery died. :(
Sons of Penn Whats the word on Kosorenkov? Last years invite to dev camp. He had another great year in the Q
Flyers up 1-0 after one Let's go FLYERS
so what's up with the Phantoms goal tenders? Tokarski, Sandstrom, Lyon and Stolarz all on the roster? Is Stolarz ever going to make any more rehab starts?
Anyone know if and what time the Flyers will be practicing on Monday the 19th? Is the practice open to the public?
This is an awesome way to learn about the Flyers and future Flyers. My only complaint is the Reading Royals are not listed and that the Flyers are not send more prospects to Reading. When they were with the Kings we saw many future Kings. The best one was Mike Quick. I would also like to see some articles about Flyers prospects in Reading.
As good and as much credit as the Sabres deserve for their defensive gameplay. The Flyers for their part failed to execute effectively and efficiently to win due to their shoddy defensive zone coverage. I cannot for the life of me come to understand why the persist in ignoring the obvious and call up - SAM MORIN and MIKE VECHIONNE (whens he's healthy ) both of whom should've been regulars on this roster going back to last season into this year. The only logic or reason I can grasp at is that they (the Flyers GM and company ) are showcasing the other D-man ( 5 others with the exceptions of GHOST/PROVS ) to possibly move them in a trade of some sort to winnow down the D-pool. Otherwise,its utterly preposterous to have a " BEAST of a GAMECHANGER " such as MORIN "IS" not playing given the fact that, he's easily superior to 5 of the other 7 D-men in his offensive and defensive attributes/capabilities. VECHIONNE adds depth scoring along with a solid enough two-way game which is totally obvious to even a di**it. So, I say again and reiterate " WAKE THE F*CK UP HEXTALL " PC.
let's see how long Hexy backpedals, I hope i'm wrong and it all works out but it doesn't look like a bright season again
This must be the theatre of the absurd ... MORIN ( a phenom - could and would be the next PRONGER or CHARA )which is better than MANNING , MACDONALD, AND HAGG and yet this moronic decision making continues. Enter two vet plugs in LETHERA AND WEISE WTF... there are so many other options VECCHIONE, VOROBYOV, LEIER,MCDONALD... Also MARTEL should be on the second power play as well.(far more dynamic than half the deadbeats allotted and assigned to that unit) All these imbecilic executive decisions which undermine a franchise's potential. Must the fan base take to the streets with torches and pitchforks before anything is rectified or resolved. When will there be accountability along with transparency. "TIME TO WAKE THE F***UP!!!"
