Flyers ink Kimmo Timonen for one more year

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) “I’ve been thinking about this a long time, and I’m going to take a few weeks here and see how I feel. I feel, like injury-wise, I’m in pretty good shape. It’s not like I can say I ‘okay I have to go do this surgery’ and that kind of stuff, […]

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) It was a given that Ron Hextall was brought back to Philadelphia to one day become the general manager of the Flyers, the question has always been when the right time would be to make the move. Ed Snider apparently feels that time is now. The Flyers have called an 11:30 […]

Mason to return to practice, may start Sunday

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) This isn’t the way that Steve Mason had imagined his first postseason with the Philadelphia Flyers. As his teammates readied themselves for Game 1 of their Metropolitan Division Semifinal against the New York Rangers, the goaltender was relegated to being an observer. “Very frustrating,” he said after skating Friday at Chelsea […]

Berube has decisions to make in goal and on blue line

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) For much of the past few weeks, Craig Berube has had to come up with line combinations due to a run of injuries to his forward ranks.

Philadelphia Flyers: Early-season adversity may pay off in long-term

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) Some random thoughts and observations on the Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 victory Tuesday night over the Ottawa Senators in regular season game number 20: Sean Couturier, Kimmo Timonen and Adam Hall all snapped extended goalless droughts, but Steve Mason continues to be one of the biggest stories for the Flyers this season.

Flyers with rare chance to reboot ugly start to season

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) The week-long break that comes to an end tonight could not have come at a better time for the Philadelphia Flyers. Losers of four straight and owners of a 1-7-0 record following last Thursday’s embarrassing 4-1 home defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia was a team in total […]

Mason making early case as long-term solution

  By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) The Philadelphia Flyers were in the hunt for a young goaltender at the trade deadline this past April, and it appeared as though Ben Bishop of the Ottawa Senators was their main target.  The team had dealt Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets the previous summer, as the 23-year-old netminder […]

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) There was a lot of “It’s only preseason” heard during a 1-5-1 exhibition campaign, and it’s fine to have the attitude that “it’s only the first three games of the regular season”.
