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
Hey guys, I am a geologist up in Canada and was in Flin Flon, Manitoba recently for some field work. The entire city is built directly on top of volcanic rocks that are nearly two billion years old, the same rocks that host the prolific Copper-Zinc mine that has been the centrepiece of the local economy. Most of the exposed rock outcrop has been painted up/vandalized by teenagers ("Tommy & Laura 1979!!!" sort of thing) but near a small Rotary Club park in the middle of the town, I ran into this cool mural that someone painted commemorating two of the greatest Flyers to ever play for the local Flin Flon Bombers junior club. Enjoy!
Pretty shitty rivalry you have there, guys. via Japers' Rink
Someone I follow on Twitter posted this cool story about how she became a Flyers fan, involving her dad and Fred Shero. There's even some pictures of one of Shero's actual old playbooks!
