Good afternoon Flyers fans! With only about a month left until training camp, the hockey world is beginning to move again. Take a look at the latest stories from around the league:
Philadelphia Flyers News
Yesterday, Eklund posited on Hockeybuzz.com that the Flyers may be interested in trading for Zach Bogosian. Of course, this rumor is a bit out there, but Eklund has been right on some Flyers news before it happens (see Lecavalier and Del Zotto).Would Bogosian make sense in Philadelphia? Yes. he is a big bodied, right handed defenseman who can skate. But the price to get him may be too high. Either way, it is an interesting topic to discuss in the middle of August.
In this video on the Philadelphia Flyers official web site Ron Hextall sits down with Steve Coates and breaks down the Flyers roster at each position. He had some great things to say about Ray Emery and he was honest about the lack of a top-tier defenseman. His assessment of the forwards was positive and overall he seems to have a solid grasp of the team. The video will give fresh insight into the mind of our GM.
In his daily blog, Bill Meltzer restarted a series on “Philadelphia Flyers pilgrimages.” Todays place was in Manitoba and is the hometown of Bobby Clarke. Meltzer will run a blog tomorrow detailing Clarkies legacy both on and off the ice for the orange and black.
