Emery and Co. Take on Senators

It wasn’t too long ago that Ray Emery was nestled between the pipes in Ottawa and leading them to the Stanley Cup Finals. He faces his former team tonight at a Wachovia Center that is sure to be rocking as the Philly Phaithful looks to see their team go for 5-straight wins after a week where the Phillies lost their title defense and the Eagles lost to the Cowboys. The standings picture hasn’t changed much over the past few days for the Flyers as they have played a league-low of only 14 games. Taking into account they have games in hand, this game can be considered very important since it is against an Eastern Conference opponent in which the Flyers still sit 6th in. They are still 4th in the Atlantic division, but they are literally a couple games away from each team. Let’s hope they bring the noise tonight.

James Van Riemsdyk, Danny Briere, Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, and Ryan Parent all practiced this week yet the only probables out of that list are really JVR and Briere who are expetected to play. Parent’s groin is still bothering him and Tollefsen suffered a mild concussion in the Blues game so he most likely won’t play until at least next week. Oskar Bartulius is still called-up from the Phantoms so he should get the start tonight.

Recap tomorrow most likely.

Tollefsen Signs

Well we’ve been talking about this for the past week or so and it was pretty much inevitable it was going to happen pending a physical, and apparently he passed it. The Flyers official site has the full story. This 6’2, 211 pound defenseman marks the 7th D-man on the Flyers roster. The rumors of Jones going to the Kings are abundant and it really makes you think, who else would be going? Timmonen, Coburn, Pronger, and Parent are obvious choices to stay behind. I believe Carle is too big of a value at this point ESPECIALLY with the addition of a probable pairing with Pronger. Jones looks like the odd-man out in this situation, especially since the Kings have expressed interest in him (for reasons I’ll never know). Keep checking back soon because a deal is probably in the works. I’m looking for the Flyers to sign a veteran forward soon so someone will have to go. Sykora, please.

Flyers Trade/Signing Rumors reports in their Monday rumors with a little tidbit about the Flyers:

The Flyers are looking to free some cap space for a relatively minor signing and may have a deal to send a player to Phoenix or LA on the table.

Who could this possibly be? We can look at the scenarios in Jeff’s previous post and see that guys like Randy Jones, Matt Carle, Riley Cote, Andreas Nodl, and the likes can be moved to relieve the cap hit.
