This Week in Flyers History: Week ending May 3

May 2, 1999 It was Game 6 of the 1998-99 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. With the Flyers down three games to two, they were on home ice trying to force a Game 7 back in Toronto. One of the bigger topics of this series was the officiating. Some of the calls seemed to be inconsistent, to say the least. Unfortunately, for Flyers fans...

Philadelphia Flyers Fire Head Coach Craig Berube After Two Seasons

PHILADELPHIA — Flyers general manager Ron Hextall did not ask one player for a review or recommendation at the year-end meetings on embattled coach Craig Berube. He didn’t need any. Another empty season without a Stanley Cup fueled by players who failed to meet expectations told Hextall all he needed to know. It was time to move on. The Flyers fired Berube after two seasons on...

Flyers GM Hextall declines to make decision on coach Berube's fate

  Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall says Craig Berube is still the head coach ''at this point.'' Hextall says there's no timetable when he'll make a decision following a season that saw the Flyers miss the playoffs. The Flyers players gave, at best, lukewarm reviews this week of Berube following a 33-31-18 (84 points) season. Hextall says ''I'm not going to make a...

Philadelphia Flyers: On to next season

The Philadelphia Flyers capped off an unimpressive season with a loss to the playoff-motivated Ottawa Senators. Even though Ron Hextall’s team was mathematically eliminated from the playoff run a few games before, the fight to win was somewhat present. Nevertheless, the Flyers season is over and the focus now should be on improving the flaws in the system. Towards the end of the...

Breaking down the effectiveness of the Philadelphia Flyers’ forwards

On balance, it has been a pretty disappointing year for the Philadelphia Flyers. With the start-and-stop offense, major defensive failings, multiple injuries in the goaltending corps, and a coach that probably won’t be back behind the benches next season, it’s been a tough season all around. On top of it all, Philadelphia will miss the playoffs […] The post Breaking down the...

What will become of Zac Rinaldo?

The Philadelphia Flyers, for the majority of their 48 year history, have always welcomed a rougher breed of hockey. This style of play is very influential, seldom matched, but always effective.  Most NHL teams have employed a player, whose main contribution had little to do with offense or defense, but rather setting a tone and […] The post What will become of Zac Rinaldo? appeared...

Vincent Lecavalier thinks he needs a better opportunity

Vincent Lecavalier’s time with the Philadelphia Flyers has been beyond disappointing. Signed to a five-year, $22.5 million contract prior to the 2013-14 season, it was clear that Lecavalier would be held to some high expectations. The hope was that he’d benefit from new scenery after having his contract bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2013. Things haven’t gone according...

Bill Guerin thinks the Penguins whine too much

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a reputation as being a team that loves to complain. Sidney Crosby and his teammates have been given nicknames surrounding this very idea, mocking the fact the Penguins are often seen complaining to the officials after penalty calls and offside whistles.
