Took my Flyers hoodie up a hill...

6

Greetings from the top of Conic Hill in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, Scotland. Probably the first of many hill walks now that I am living in Glasgow permanently, and want to bag as many munros as I can. Will try and get as many of them in Flyers gear too for funsies. Views: Loch Lomond, with the small islands of Inchlonaig and Inchfad in the background, plus several snow covered (yes, still! this is Scotland after all) peaks leading round to Inverbeg and Ben Arthur (which is my next climb in a few weeks)

Claude Giroux experiment on hold; Philadelphia Flyers set lineups for exhibitions

+

Four of the Flyers’ top forwards — Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, Wayne Simmonds, and Sean Couturier — will not be playing in either of their split-squad exhibition games Wednesday against the New York Islanders. Instead, the Flyers will get a look at several young players trying to make the roster. Defensively, Radko Gudas, Andrew MacDonald, and Ivan Provorov will not play. "There’s a thought process to it. We have another game tomorrow, so it’s back-to-back," coach Dave Hakstol said after Wednesday’s morning skate in Voorhees. "…Today gives us a good opportunity to see some combinations, to see some individuals." The Philadelphia Flyers enter the 2017-18 season with a very promising future and a competitive roster. The Philadelphia Flyers were one of the biggest surprises of the 2015-16 season. Not only did they make the postseason, they gave a good challenge to the Washington Capitals before losing to them in six games. Everyone thought the Flyers had a promising future and would contend for the next few years. The latter might not be true, but even after regressing in 2016-17, the former is even more true.

Flyers experiment with Claude Giroux at LW, Sean Couturier as his center Last season, Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier were on the ice at the same time during even-strength situations for just a bit more than five minutes. Depending upon how a Philadelphia Flyers’ pre-season experiment goes, they could line up together a whole lot more often. Of course, if you missed this post’s headline, you might be asking: "But how? They’re both centers." Well, under this experiment, Giroux would move to left wing, Couturier would play center, and Jakub Voracek would assume his familiar role at RW. Giroux came into the NHL primarily as a right-winger before moving to center, so he’s clearly versatile enough to theoretically work out on a wing. It also might allow the Flyers to try to duplicate some of their mad science from the power play to even-strength, as that’s often the role he finds himself in on that locomotive of a man-advantage unit.

Flyers Goal Scored By #79, Andrei Markov?

The only way this works is if Old MacDonald is out the door. (Hey, Joe Sakic wants to "upgrade" his defense...) I'd be okay with this assuming AMac becomes someone else's problem as a result.

THIS is why he wears an "A"

The Philadelphia Flyers forward, who is representing France at the tournament, was named the player of the game after its 5-1 upset win against Finland on Sunday. But he rejected the acknowledgment, and a free watch, instead letting France goalie Florian Hardy accept the honor.

Penguins winning in playoffs despite poor possession numbers

NHL.com's Cotsonika goes into how having possession is nice, but scoring is more important.

Not that we needed reinforcement, but ...

The headline reads: "What happened to Claude Grioux?" I think that says pretty much everything about Philly sports coverage of hockey ....
