  • Are the Flyers a better team? Define "better team": [NHL Hot Stove] [CSNPhilly]
  • Jack McCaffery is a crazy man. This column is so infuriatingly bad, it's worth linking to here. A sampling: "the Flyers had waited too long for either of them to deliver a title based loosely on a weird memory of a long-ago Calder Cup and a cockeyed fable that Richards was the next Bobby Clarke. For as many splendid plays as they provided, they had become a nothing more than overpaid, miserable, injury-prone ego balloons.": [delcotimes.com]
