  • Chris Pronger left last night's game after being struck in the hand by a puck. Early word is MRI negative: [Philly Sports Daily] [Daily News]
  • Claude Giroux had himself quite a "ridiculous" game last night: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • Ugh. Andrej Meszaros is "clutch". If you believe in that sort of thing. Or Al Montoya fell, whichever: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • hahaha, 3 minutes of not-really-play-by-play of a Flyers PK from last night. If you like assholes - and we know you do, you ^don't^ read us me - you'll want to listen. Oh, beware the cursing: [Flyers Goal Scored By...]
  • The Sons of Ben invaded the Wells Fargo Center again last night: [Brotherly Game]
  • Sadly, Oskars Bartulis is officially out for the year with a shoulder injury: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • In honor of Bartulis, Ben Rothenberg put together a tribute video for our Wolf of the Sea: [BSH]
  • In response, the Flyers "have inquired" about Adam Foote: [Frequent Flyers]
  • Nikolay Zherdev cleared waivers, but remains with the team. For now. [Frequent Flyers] [Philly Sports Daily] [CSNPhilly] [Flyers Faithful]
  • Looking at why Ville Leino and Zherdev had different results in Philly: [Flyers Faithful]
  • A very thorough update on the Phantoms, including Zherdev, Walker, Rowe, Bourdon, Leighton, and more. Oh, and Derian Hatcher: []
  • The Penguins acquired Alex Kovalev for... basically nothing: []
  • After Mario Lemieux put in a good word for Kovalev: []
  • The Hurricanes got Cory Stillman from Florida: [Canes Country]
  • The Ducks got Dan Ellis in exchange for Curtis McElhinney: []
  • While the Canadiens acquired Brent Sopel: [Habs Eyes On The Prize]
  • And the Stars' asking price for Brad Richards is either laugh out loud, ridiculously high, or this isn't what they are actually asking for: []
  • A good quote from Paul Bissonnette in an article about Jody Shelley and his 60 stitches: "You have to bring that extra energy, because a lot of guys when they’re playing 15, 20 minutes a night, they don’t have time to come in and make jokes and entertain people."
  • Not for the squeamish - though it isn't bloody particularly clear - but Ryan O`Byrne got his face sliced by Taylor Hall's skate. Almost another Clint Malarchuk/Richard Zednik: [Puck Daddy]
  • Arguing that the Flyers should acquire Tomas Vokoun. I am inclined to agree. By trading two players from the NHL roster, both of whom are 24 years old or younger. I strongly disagree: [Hockey Prospectus]
  • Arguing that the trade deadline - well, the act of trading in general, really - is immoral. An interesting take that I'm not sure I agree with: [The Copper & Blue]

  • Ever wonder what official NHL trade calls sound like? Wonder no more: [Down Goes Brown]
