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.

Internal Politics is Costing Us the Fight For Chemistry

If our staff is so damn adamant in finding team chemistry, then why does it tear down whatever little we have in the name of a black sheep?

Re-signing Voracek and Getting Crazy with the Salary Cap

Between now and then, we could possibly witness Voracek go from a very good player... to a sensationally elite player. And he'll be looking to be paid like one.
