Covering the Philadelphia Flyers: Right now, we're very into the universe.
Geoff Detweiler joined Broad Street Hockey in June 2009. He is a graduate of Drexel University School of Law after graduating with a bachelor's degree in History and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Currently, Geoff lives in Fairfax, Va after growing up in Quakertown, Pa, 15 minutes south of Allentown. Despite neither parent being interested in sports, Geoff became a passionate fan of both the Flyers and the Phillies. Outside of that, he roots for everything Philadelphia, but only the Flyers and Phillies are able to ruin his mood with a poor performance. As the degree suggests, Geoff is a huge political junkie. Eventually he wants to work on Capitol Hill assisting an honest man or woman serve their constituents. Plus, anything you want to know about our 44 Presidents, Geoff most likely knows it. If you're curious, his favorite is James Knox Polk.
Do you see anything here to change the original thesis* of: "The two are not the same player, despite achieving similar results. Both men help their team spend more time in the offensive zone. Both men help their team outscore the opposition. Both men look fantastic when playing next to Pronger/Weber. Both men are looking at a very large payday this summer. Both men are less than physical defensemen. Both men have a fair amount of turnovers. But Suter is better at suppressing shots while Carle is better at generating offense." Me neither. * found here: http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2012/3/2/2830998/philadelphia-flyers-matt-carle-ryan-suter-nhl-free-agency-2012
As many have probably noticed, I am no longer compiling the morning links. The reasons are many, and simple: I'm happier without hockey.
Getting ready for Flyers camp, talking about mending lockout wounds, a couple DGB posts and a hilarious except from Sean Pronger's book.
On a day of multiple call ups, Luke Schenn and Jakub Voracek are your profiles from Voorhees. Also, Giroux wearing the 'C' and Luongo rumors to to satisfy the appetite.
Players returned to the SkateZone in good spirits and writers were there to capture it.
The Flyers are arriving in camp, though there are still injury concerns. Lubomir Visnovsky still doesn't want to go to the Islanders, plus some lockout humor.
Lots of news, but all that matters is the lockout is over.
The threat of disclaimer of interest remains, though Teemu Selanne is optimistic. Meet Jeff Dimmen, reunite with Paul Ranheim and acquaint yourself with Marcel Noebels.
Imagine an opening night against the Penguins, then remember we're still in a lockout. Sorry.
Marcel Noebels joins the Phantoms in time for the new year.
