In this new part of “Meet the New Flyers”, we once again are looking at a defenseman. One of the most curious pickups in the off-season for Paul Holmgren and Co. because this signing of former Blue Jackets defenseman Ole-Kristian Tollefsen brought a 7th d-man to the table. With floods of rumors and speculation pointing to the fact that guys like Timmonen, Pronger, and Coburn are mostly a lock to stay with the team because of their big role and Parent being a young guy in our system… Matt Carle and even more likely candidate to be dumped or demoted to the minors Randy Jones need to be cleared to make room for him. So what can Tollefsen bring to the table? Read the rest of this entry »
Good news for Flyers fans: the groin strain that Gagne suffered will not keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Wednesday that Gagne received an injection and can return to the ice in two weeks, in time for the start of training camp on Sept. 12.
The bad news is Gagne’s groin is reminiscent of Forsberg’s ankle.
After seventeen years in the NHL, Mike Sillinger is hanging up his skates.
The Canadian Olympic team is holding a camp in Calgary this week to prepare the players to make the roster for the Olympic team whom will see action in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, Simon Gagne, and Chris Pronger are all in attendance representing the Flyers. However, Simon Gage was injured during this morning’s practice and is expected to miss the rest of the camp. Paul Holmgren gave an update on Gags’ injury a short time ago, and he attributed to a “mild groin strain”. Hopefully it is not going to be as recurring as Briere’s was last season, and hopefully Simon takes the time to rest and get ready for a very important upcoming Flyers season.
He is going to get checked out by the Flyers orthopedic physician tomorrow, so we’ll have more as it develops.
Latest news from Eklund over at Hockeybuzz is saying that Sykora has narrowed it down to two teams.
I’ve been on vacation the past week and the semester is starting soon, but that does not mean the Broad Street Bully won’t be updated as usual as soon as I’m back from sunny South Carolina. We have other features planned for these slow news weeks as training camp in September and the season in October inches closer. Look in the next week or so for conclusions on our “Meet the New Flyers” segment and new ones to be popping up. The free-agent market is still open, and the Flyers are still interested in Sykora so look for that as well. Summer’s ending and that only means one thing… Hockey is around the corner.
