Anthony SanFillippo of the Delaware County Times is our guest this week on BSH Radio. Our first ever repeat guest, SanFillippo is the one writer on the Flyers beat who actually gives our humble little site the time of day. In fact, he actually has shown up to commune with us a few times, so in that regard, we respect him more than just about anybody else on the beat.

But it's not like we had him on the show again because he gets internet media. No, he knows the Flyers pretty damn well too, and he's actually a pretty timely guest since he's been at the core of a few mini-controversies lately. Late last week, SanFillippo threw a post up on his blog saying he was "embarrassed to be a hockey writer" after his colleagues from the Professional Hockey Writers Association named Capitals defenseman Mike Green as a finalist for the Norris Trophy.

We talk about those criticisms and the harsh words he had for his fellow writers on this weeks show. We also take a step back to the week prior and discuss his criticisms of the atmosphere at Prudential Center in Newark.

It's not all the off-ice stuff, though. We also talked with SanFillippo about the loss of Ian Laperriere, who the Flyers should hope to play come the second round, the potential return of Michael Leighton, and finally, we discuss his justification for comparing Mike Richards to Hall of Famer Steve Yzerman.

Get the show after the jump.
