  • Video highlights of yesterday's game: [Caps365]
  • Recap of the game: [Flyers]
  • First, let's commend Frank Seravalli for actually going to the rookie game in Virginia.  But seriously, another headline with Testwuide in it?!? Recap: [Frequent Flyers]

  • Nikolai Zherdev is adjusting to the NHL and speaking English again: [CSNPhilly]
  • What does Bill Guerin's presence mean for the Flyers? "For the Flyers, I’d imagine Guerin’s presence is akin to a sugar-happy kid who..." Yeah, you want to see where that's going: [Flyers Faithful]

  • Lukas Krajicek signed in the Czech Extraliga, turning down one-way deals in the NHL: [euroflyers]
  • The Sharks wanted to add size to their blueline (just like the Flyers!) so they invited 6'3" 228-pound Andreas Lilja to camp on a tryout.  Yet the Flyers are paying 6'3" 227-pound Matt Walker $1.7 million.  And traded Simon Gagne for him. []
  • Looking at goaltender talent: "One of the biggest gaps in the league is between Roberto Luongo, Olympic Gold Medalist and Michael Leighton, obvious replacement-level goaltender (don't tell Paul Holmgren):" [Behind The Net]

  • Sean Avery leaks the Rangers new third jerseys: [icethetics]
  • NHL referees and linesmen head to the bargaining table: [Down Goes Brown]
