Geoffrey Detweiler

Associate Editor

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.

Flyers' defense packs Powe-erful punch

Imagine my surprise as I boarded the train this morning and opened up my daily Metro, to find that *gasp* the Flyers writer knows nothing about the team, nor has the time to even look at an official roster. Darroll Powe is a second-year defenseman? AND a lame pun in the headline? Amazing. Throw in a quote in which Powe references his "linemates", and you have bad journalism all around.

Philadelphia is currently tied for last place in the Atlantic, but that’s highly misleading, both because they’ve played four games less than three of their rivals and because by one measure, the Flyers have been the best team in the entire NHL: Philadelphia leads the league at 1.13 goal difference per game, a portent of even better results to come. The Flyers boast two of the biggest stories of the young season: the wildly successful return from the KHL by controversial netminder Ray Emery (7.0 GVT) ––who is in the top 10 in wins, GAA and save percentage––and the Norris Trophy caliber play of offseason acquisition Chris Pronger (5.7 GVT), who is being given credit for the improved play of 25 year old Matt Carle (4.5 GVT) – Carle and Pronger are tops among all skaters at plus-17 and plus-13. Rookie James van Riemsdyk (3.9 GVT) has provided a welcome boost to Philly’s offense, offsetting the long term loss of Simon Gagne (0.7 GVT). The Flyers of 2008-09 were known for their prolific offense; Paul Holmgren’s moves to acquire Emery and Pronger have now built the nucleus of a championship defense.

Flyers Terminate Lukas Kaspar's Contract

Tim McManus reports that the Flyers have allowed Lukas Kaspar to leave the team and play in Europe. While not a huge move, this does leave one less depth player in the organization - as well as one less contract to worry about.
