Maple Leafs’ Assets That Could Be Moved in Trade for a Defenseman

The one thing recent games have shown is that the Toronto Maple Leafs’ biggest weakness appears to be on defense. The fact is that team defense is more than just who’s playing the defensive positions. Defense involves a total commitment by the forwards as well. On most of...

“Our fans are angry. We are sick of losing” Chuck Fletcher and Dave Scott’s State of the Flyers Presser at The Midway Point of the season

There is no denying that this is a huge month or so for the Flyers, with the trade deadline looming on March 21, 2022. After missing the playoffs last season, and enduring losing streak after losing streak this season. The Flyers are doubtful to make the playoffs for a second straight season, as the team sits currently in last place in the Metropolitan Division with 34 points. Chuck Fletcher’s left searching to make shift his roster trying to rebuild on the fly as Dave Scott indicated during the presser, and he is left with expiring contracts that he will try to move out by the deadline to receive assets in return, such as, draft capital: Contracts like Martin Jones, Justin Braun, Derick Brassard, Keith Yandle, and Claude Giroux.

POSTGAME 5: Frustration Continues in 4-3 Loss

The Philadelphia Flyers lost to the New York Islanders, 4-3, at UBS Arena on Tuesday evening. The Flyers led 2-0 in the first period and then had to battle back from a 3-2 deficit in the third period only to fall short. With the defeat, the Flyers are winless in...

Zach Parise’s game-winning goal propels Islanders past Flyers

The power play was expiring, and the Islanders had nothing to show for it. After a strong first minute to the power play, a few miscues had prevented them from doing much, and the Flyers had gotten a rush the other way. But as Morgan Frost’s penalty expired, Brock Nelson rushed up the ice and fed a behind-the-back pass to Anthony Beauvillier, who found Zach Parise. And Parise let loose a shot that rattled the back of the net at 11:51 of the third period. The goal was the capper on a much-needed 4-3 victory for the Islanders at UBS Arena on Tuesday night.

The Toronto Maple Leafs Should NOT Trade for John Klingberg …Yet

The Toronto Maple Leafs sit near the top of the NHL standings, and will likely look to make a move ahead of the upcoming NHL Trade Deadline. There are a lot of rumours swirling about the Dallas Stars shopping defenseman, John Klingberg, and the Toronto Maple Leafs being a potential taker.

Early Offseason Wish List For the Flyers

Equal parts expensive and inadequate, the Flyers roster is primed for an overhaul. The team’s ugly 13-21-8 record attests to this. With the head coaching role, captaincy, and perhaps even the general manager position all up in the air as the season nears the halfway point, the Flyers of 2022-2023 could (and should) look very different. See below which players they need, and how they can acquire them.

Preview: Flyers try to stop the bleeding on the Island

For the third time this season and the third time in eight days, the Flyers will face the New York Islanders in New York. The Flyers have a shot at franchise history tonight. The longest winless streak in team history is 12, but things are actually a little more muddled than that for two reasons: the NHL doesn’t count overtime and shootout losses in losing streaks, only winless streaks, and the franchise’s previous winless streaks include ties. The 12 game winless streak came in February and March of 1999, achieved by a team that finished 37-29-19 and second place in the division. That streak included four ties and over those 12 games they put 361 shots on net and allowed 281. The two 11 game winless streaks in the team’s history also included two ties each.

Flyers Reach New All-Time Lows; Lose 4-3

It’s the cruelest running joke. The 2021-2022 Philadelphia Flyers are the undisputed worst in franchise history. On the night when Keith Yandle became the NHL’s ironman, the Flyers couldn’t finish the job. They took a two-goal lead but then coughed it up. Thirteen straight sets a new low for franchise standards as the longest losing streak in team history.

3 Reasons Flyers Should Start Selling Now

The Philadelphia Flyers have been on a downward spiral over the past few weeks, extending their losing streak to 11 games in a row. It is almost a certainty at this point that they become sellers at the deadline, but it would do them lots of good to consider trading assets to contenders before that.

The Flyers’ skid extends to a team-record 13 games

ELMONT, N.Y. — The same night the Flyers’ Keith Yandle broke the NHL record for most consecutive games played, his team broke the franchise mark for most consecutive losses. Their 4-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday night extended their skid to 13 games, dating back...
