The Next Flyers Head Coach Won't Be Perfect

Since Craig Berube’s firing, the debate in Philadelphia over the next coach to fill the role has been frustrating. Unless your last name is Babcock, you’re not the answer, you’ve never been an answer, and you’ll never be an answer.

Hextall's State of the Flyers

We're two games from the midway point of the 2014-15 season; our record is 14 - 18 - 7 (35 points); we're 10-points outside of a Wild Card position, 12-points from 3rd Seed in the Metropolitan Division; our points percentage (0.449) is the lowest it has been since the '06-07 campaign (0.341); and we have 43 games left to turn things around.

Make Way For Contract Extensions, Ya Sumbitch!

There's nothing we can do about the salary cap. It has been here for a decade, and it's here to stay. However, with a little creative thinking and cap manipulation, Ron Hextall has set us up for some very innovative implementation.
