Handcuffed by salary-cap woes he inherited, new Flyers general manager Ron Hextall was unable to upgrade the team in the offseason. Hextall isn't worried.

Claude Giroux would take Claude Giroux over any player in the NHL

Well, at least Claude Giroux is confident. ESPN’s subscription Insider service is on a quest to declare the NHL’s top franchise player—that is to say the hand-picked player a franchise would choose to build around in a fantasy draft, I guess—and it’s taken the Worldwide Leader on an interesting path. They’ve taken to asking the star players themselves who they would...

Is this the year Scott Laughton sticks with Flyers?

It was almost a year ago now that Scott Laughton stood in the visitors locker room of the Verizon Center in Washington, after the last preseason game, and made a compelling case. It was just about time for the team to make its final cuts and Laughton listed every reason he thought he shouldn't be on the team.

In all his years as a pro hockey player, he never was one to seek out stories. Not the good ones. Not the bad ones. After signing a five-year, $22.5 million contract with the Flyers last summer, things changed quickly for Lecavalier. The...

Why Signing Michael Del Zotto was a Great Move by the Flyers

#481011485 / gettyimages.com Ron Hextall has had some very tough decisions since becoming the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, but by far his best choice so far is the signing of Michael Del Zotto.
