Thursday Morning Fly By: Syvret's Rehab, Trade Rumors, and Maroon Returns

New, comments

Today's open discussion thread, including your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

  • Last night's NHL scores... CAR 5 - NYR 1; BUF 2 - NJ 1 (SO); TB 3 - MTL 0; WAS 5 - ANA 1; MIN 5 - DET 2; DAL 4 - CAL 3 (SO); VAN 3 - STL 2
  • Flyers are still in 6th, but they are tied with four teams at 55 points.
  • The Flyers official website writes about Kevin Marshall and Marc-Andre Bourdon's development.  Do they read BSH? [Flyers]
  • With "Lost" coming back next week, The 700 Level looks at who the Flyers would bring back from the past.  The answer might surprise you. [The700Level]
  • In case you aren't an avid Preston & Steve listener like myself, Ian Laperriere was on the show recently.  He's hysterical.  Here's the audio. [The700Level]
  • An update on Danny Syvret's rehab: "I thought I was progressing along pretty quickly, but it seems I am stuck in a position where I can’t make any quick movement in my shoulder shooting the puck – anything involving an explosive movement." [CSNPhilly]
  • Patrick Maroon returned from his concussion last night.  Let's just say he had a good game:  "In a grand return, Maroon scored twice, had an assist, and nearly a hat trick in the Phantoms 5-3 win over Binghamton." [PostStar]
  • Ray Emery will be starting in net tonight. [John Boruk]
  • With the trade deadline approaching, there have been a lot of stories about who could be moving.  Here are 10 players, one of whom is Marty Turco"And he'd bring value from a team that could use some veteran stability in goal behind a strong blue line and talent up front. Unfortunately, that team plays in a city that eats goalies up like cheesesteaks and their beat writer doesn't think the Philadelphia Flyers will even be looking for a goalie." [Puck Daddy]
  • But one Philadelphia writer says you shouldn't expect a big trade from the Flyers. [DelCoTimes]
  • Maybe they would grab Petr Sykora though? "Should he report [to the AHL](and that’s questionable) and Minnesota attempts to recall him, he would have to go through re-entry waivers and a team could claim him for half of his $1.6 million salary. That might make him attractive to the cap-strapped Flyers, who could use depth at right wing." [Inquirer]
  • There has been a lot of talk about Sheldon Souray leaving Edmonton, and a fellow SBNation blog has breached NHL team offices. [The Copper & Blue]
  • Yesterday was a big day for Chris Pronger stories.  First, an article about him: [CSNPhilly] then a two part interview: [DelcoTimes]
  • More Calder talk, this time giving Tyler Myers his due.  But also mentioning James van Riemsdyk as a "darkhorse." [Puck Daddy]
  • As mentioned in yesterday's Fly By thread, Jay Bouwmeester is coming under fire.  [Puck Daddy]  I finally feel vindicated. [BSH]
  • Tim McManus looks at a player the Phantoms called up from the ECHL, sent him back, and let him get away:  "A nearly point-a-game guy so far for a contending team isn’t half bad. Twelve points would put Steiner in the top-10 of the Phantoms scoring leaders, sad as that is. He’s exactly the kind of veteran, AHL-only guy that teams like Hershey, Chicago and Manitoba sign." [PostStar]
  • How risky is it signing a goalie to a lucrative contract?  Would you believe a 60% chance of success?  "I don’t think there’s any arguing the fact that Holland ... is right about goalies, and the fact that general managers continue to sign decidedly average players to big money contracts (for a recent example, see Ward, Cam) boggles my mind." [Hockey or Die]
