Flyers Look for Banner Time In Boston

The Philadelphia Flyers will start their 2011-2012 season in Boston against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Bruins on the night their Stanley Cup Banner is unveiled at 7:00 pm EST at TD Garden.

Ironically in the same place their 2010-2011 brief playoff run ended in a sweep, only managing two goals for, while surrendering ten in games three and four in Boston. This is not just any ordinary opening night.

The Flyers will have to watch the Bruins organization unveil their 2010-2011 Stanley Cup Banner right before their eyes. There may be a bright side to the Flyers team being witness to that, as it could add extra motivation and set the tone for the season.

Unless your team is participating in a tournament such as the one in Traverse City, rookie camp is fun to get into. But for Flyers fans, it's not usually as exciting. Luckily for a few thousand fans, there is that one Flyers rookie game.

In rookie camp alone there ar...

New Team Brings Apprehension

 

Once the wrecking ball completed the journey through the Flyers roster following last season, there was no doubt apprehension would follow. And it has. The Flyers fan base has seen an interesting and at times, tumultuous offseason. The captain’s gone, his sidekick is in Columbus and the season’s around the corner.

The really tricky thing about Philadelphia’s offseason is that they really only added one known quantity to the roster. When an exodus the magnitude of the one that general manager Paul Holmgren put into action occurs, usually the return soothes the hearts and souls of the fans. Aside from forward Maxime Talbot, the new players in orange and ...
