In the back of their minds, the Philadelphia Flyers likely knew that the start of this compacted 48-game schedule wasn’t going to be easy and that they were going to need to adapt to that strange new world quickly.
But add in injuries, lack of discipline, and, at times questionable effort and they find themselves tied with the Rangers at the bottom of the Atlantic Division.
The Flyers, like many NHL teams, are still getting used to the pace of the schedule. But it is an excuse that will begin to ring hollow sooner rather than later.
I had a chance to screen this new movie from Judd Apatow and low and behold I saw Scott Hartnell, Matt Carle, JVR and Lappy in there. Lappy had a great scene with Megan Fox (watch the video Lappy is in there towards the end).
Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Melissa McCarthy all hit a collective home run in this hilarious movie. Albert Brooks was subtly brilliant as he always is. I laughed for most of the movie and it grossed me out, made me wince, had me shaking my head and loving it.
Even in the “dog days” of the National Hockey League offseason, the Philadelphia Flyers always seem to find a way to make news.
After missing on long term deals to unrestricted free agents Zack Parise and Ryan Suter, followed by their unsuccessful super-sized offer sheet to restricted free agent defenseman Shea Weber, the Flyers made the decision to lock up their own.
It began with restricted free agent forward Jakub Voracek, who signed a four year, $17 million contract with the intention of being installed as star center Claude Giroux’s right winger.
Philadelphia - - A few weeks ago the New York Rangers had a 10-point lead sitting atop the Eastern Conference, Sidney Crosby was still out and the Flyers were still struggling. Well fast forward this a bit and with the EC race heating up the “Crosby Factor” was in full effect yesterday when the Flyers hosted them and it was a spectacle that will be talked about for years to come.
