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.

The NHL On NBC Game of the Week featuring the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers drew a 1.3 overnight rating ...[which] is tied as the highest for any non-Winter Classic regular season NHL telecast since NBC’s debut NHL telecast in ‘06 (1.5/3). Over the previous two seasons, no NHL telecast on NBC had drawn an overnight higher than 1.1 (again, excluding the Winter Classic)."

Flyers Impressing in Gabe Desjardins' NHL Equivalencies

Scott Reynolds has been doing some great work with Gabriel Desjardins' NHL equivalencies over at The Copper & Blue, and today he looked at the forwards from the 2007 draft. James van Riemsdyk is exactly where he should be - behind only Patrick Kane - while Patrick Maroon and Stefan Legein make appearances in the top 60 as well. Nothing spectacular here, but Maroon is proving to be a solid selection - even if he has the advantage of being older - while Legein is looking like a solid trade by Holmgren, even if a reach by Columbus. Really interesting read, I recommend you check it out.

Media Takes Another Shot at Richards

Mike Richards is accused of taking another shot at the media, but one writer in particular seems to be poking him with a sharpened stick.

Fantastic Breakdown of Halak v. Price

"At this point, [Halak's] overall body of work does not warrant a top six forward, but the combination of his potential and his recent play might shake one loose. Halak has played great, but I also don't think it is a coincidence that since [being shopped] Halak has started 5 of his 8 games against teams below .500 while Price has faced zero in his seven starts." Even though the Flyers already have too many goalies, if you still think Jaroslav Halak would be a good move to make, this could be the best breakdown available.

With the naked eye, it looks as if there is quite a correlation between five-on-five ratio and points in the standings. Well, the naked eye is indeed correct. The correlation coefficient is a whopping 0.86. That is extremely significant and far ahead of any other correlation we have yet to see in the latest string of articles."

-- Via Puck Prospectus A bit late on this, but that is a huge correlation. With the Flyers having their best 5-on-5 ratio in the past 5 years (1.10, tenth in the league), this should give some optimism.

Pat Maroon is awake and alert at Albany Med. He has feelings and movement in his extremities. He did regain conciousness on the ice, but not fully. Much more later." This after, "Bad moment here as Pat Maroon is being taken off on a stretcher after laying motionless for 10 or more minutes. There was a scrum in the corner after the whistle and Nicolas Blanchard came in late and gave him an elbow that sent Maroon face first into the glass then down to the ice."

-- From Tim McManus' game-day thread.
