Philadelphia Flyers Fire Head Coach Craig Berube After Two Seasons

PHILADELPHIA — Flyers general manager Ron Hextall did not ask one player for a review or recommendation at the year-end meetings on embattled coach Craig Berube. He didn’t need any.

The Flyers fired Berube after two seasons on...

Philadelphia Flyers: On to next season

The Philadelphia Flyers capped off an unimpressive season with a loss to the playoff-motivated Ottawa Senators. Even though Ron Hextall’s team was mathematically eliminated from the playoff run a few games before, the fight to win was somewhat present. Nevertheless, the Flyers season is over and the focus now should be on improving the flaws in the system. Towards the end of the...

Breaking down the effectiveness of the Philadelphia Flyers’ forwards

On balance, it has been a pretty disappointing year for the Philadelphia Flyers.

On top of it all, Philadelphia will miss the playoffs […] The post Breaking down the...

What will become of Zac Rinaldo?

The Philadelphia Flyers, for the majority of their 48 year history, have always welcomed a rougher breed of hockey.

Vincent Lecavalier thinks he needs a better opportunity

Vincent Lecavalier’s time with the Philadelphia Flyers has been beyond disappointing. Signed to a five-year, $22.5 million contract prior to the 2013-14 season, it was clear that Lecavalier would be held to some high expectations.
