Video: PHT Extra — Flyers, Canucks headed in different directions

Dec 17, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

On Tuesday, Brough and I spoke to NBC’s Kay Adams (who you can follow on Twitter at @heykayadams) about the latest from Philadelphia and Vancouver.

Yesterday, Flyers owner Ed Snider said “we have to take a long hard look at where we are and where we are going,” then hinted that changes could be on the horizon. So, we asked — where are the Flyers? Where are they going? And, will any sort of shakeup actually help this team?

After that, we shifted gears to the Canucks, the NHL’s hottest team. Vancouver has won seven straight and took care of Boston to the tune of 6-2 on Saturday, so we discussed the reasons for its’ recent success.

Here be the video:

      my nuts they’re doing “well”

        Because I’m sure your nuts are on a much longer winning streak.

    Is it true holmgren called shero after the game and offer to trade the flyers to the baby pens straight up?

      I know this was meant as a “funny” jab at the Flyers but please. Even with all the Flyers struggles they’re only a few points out of a playoff spot. If they can actually hold a lead against Washington tonight and win then they’re right there. Based off the 1-7 start this team could be in a much worse position but they’ve shown some resiliency. With how close the Metro is, all any team needs to do is go on a mini-run of 4 or 5 games and they’ll gain a lot of ground.

        Please remove the black-n-orange glasses and put down the Kool-Aid.

    good thing the metro division is as bad as it is… half of these teams would be buried if they played in the west
