Strengthening Our Forward Depth from a Possession Standpoint

If possession is a result, and becomes a universal strength of the Flyers in the 2014-15 tour, then theoretically... not one of these forward lines is constrained to situational play.

Chris Higgins, Under the Radar Trade Candidate

If you want to bump Matt Read up into the Top 6 permanently, then we have to find his Line 3 replacement, and it begins by looking outside the Flyers dressing room.

Matt Read, The Orange Prophet

Sean Couturier and Matt Read are rising faster than my mind could possibly comprehend. Bolster that pairing and give them the opportunities they statistically deserve, and you will discover a nuclear submarine to this orange Naval fleet.

Is Wayne Simmonds One of the Best NHL Power Forwards, or Simply A Power Play Specialist?

Although Wayne's even-strength (ES) points/game average has gone from 0.36 in LA to 0.41 points in Philadelphia, he is still only pacing 34 ES points from a Line 2, RW role. That's hardly Top 6 production on 5v5.

David Perron; Low Risk, High Reward Trade Candidate

My aim is to acquire a 50+ point forward who is relatively young, has NHL experience, and brings bigger bang for the buck. David Perron harnesses all of these traits.

Flyers 2014 Offseason: What If Hextall Does...... Nothing?

Big contract extensions are kicking in next League Year; namely Claude Giroux and Andrew MacDonald who are making quantum leaps in average annual value. If Brayden Schenn's extension is something like $3.1mm leaning against the salary cap, then we're coming in a hair shy of the floodmark.

So... Mason Raymond is a UFA this Summer

If this team doesn't get its Bobby Orr or Wayne Gretzky this summer, don't play a game of Russian Roulette just yet. We've got a general manager who is seemingly pro-patience, and has bought into our core players. Tiny additions like Mason Raymond often prove to be the brilliant sleeper move.

A Short & Sweet Letter to 97.5FM's Mike Gill About Claude Giroux

If you want to draw a Playoff comparison between a goal-scorer (Kane) and a playmaker (Giroux), and act like it's that cut & dry, be my guest; enjoy your coloring books.

DeNicola's Dekes: So What Do We Do Now?

At the moment, I am not expecting block bluster hockey trades on the Flyers' end. I believe our front office recognizes the future they have in this core, but that doesn't mean they aren't dismissing addition by subtraction.
