Knuble Brings Grit, Leadership to Flyers

The Flyers have brought back a familiar face to their organization.

Grizzled veteran Mike Knuble, who turned 40 last July, agreed to a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Flyers. It has been four years since Knuble was last a Flyer, and he will look to continue his long career back in Philadelphia.

Knuble's signing came as a result of losing Scott Hartnell for most of the season. Hartnell broke his foot on Tuesday and will miss 4-8 weeks according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Giroux Fails to Lead By Example In Loss

The Flyers have gone into full disappearing mode, and the epidemic has spread to the team's leader.

Before the season started, Claude Giroux was slated to be ready to lead the Flyers, getting endorsements from half the veterans on the team. But in the third game of a young but short season, the captain was completely absent from the game, leaving people wondering what happened to Giroux.

In the Flyers 3-0 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday, Giroux's poor play rubbed off on the rest of the team, including two of the Flyers' young, budding forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier.

What is Matt Martin Worth? Islanders RFA Still Remains Unsigned

The Islanders still remain without a complete roster for this upcoming season and one of the biggest names missing at this point is Matt Martin.

Martin is coming off of his rookie entry level deal and is looking to be signed long-term much like some of the other young Islanders core pieces. Drafted in the 5th round (148th Overall) in 2008, Martin has been a great late round gem for Garth Snow.

Flyers Vs. Devils Eastern Conference Semifinals, Game 2: Devils Spank Flyers; Even Series

The only Flyer playing with any "jam" was the only one who doesn't have the ability to score goals.

The Devils exhausted Ilya Bryzgalov by controlling the game against a flat Flyers team, winning 4-1 in Game 2 and evening the series up heading to North Jersey.

The Flyers wasted a brilliant first two periods by Bryzgalov, who was worn down by the constant Devils rush presented to him.

“I think he was our best player by far tonight and one of the best games I’ve seen him play in a long time," said forward Eric Wellwood. "I think it shows a lot of confidence that he stopped the puck and everything. I wish we could have gotten the win for him.”
