The Kings continued their transformation into the Flyers of the West with the addition of Simon Gagne. His health makes him a risk, but this post details why his two-year, $3M contract might be the best bargain of free agency so far.

With Brad Richards headed to the New York Rangers, the three teams that failed to land him are now left to figure out what to do next to help them out for next season.
Jun 26, 2011, 8:23 PM EDT
Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, and Jakub Voracek are all excited for their opportunities with their new team.
Jun 26, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT
After a flurry of big-time trades, it’s time to wonder if there is such thing as an “untradeable contract” anymore.
Jun 24, 2011, 3:22 PM EDT
The Kings might see an off-season’s worth of shrewd moves in just two days if they complete a Ryan Smyth trade after nabbing Mike Richards.
Jun 24, 2011, 12:09 AM EDT
Both the Columbus Blue Jackets and Los Angeles Kings are excited about their respective acquisitions from the Philadelphia Flyers.

A pair of blockbuster trades both come out of Philadelphia this afternoon as former 2003 first round picks Jeff Carter and Mike Richards are headed out of town as the Flyers clear the decks for Ilya Bryzgalov.
Jun 22, 2011, 12:52 PM EDT
According to a report, the Flyers and Ilya Bryzgalov might just have the building blocks to a new contract set in place. Will there be salary cap issues in their future once again though?

Last year, Danny Briere didn’t get much attention for leading the 2010 playoffs in scoring. Could the same thing happen for the current playoff points leader, David Krejci?

To put this to rest once and for all, Chris Pronger thinks that Mike Richards is doing just fine as Flyers captain.

Is there a correlation between touching the conference championship trophy and winning the Stanley Cup or is it all just silly superstition gone wild? We hope you know the right answer.
May 23, 2011, 6:13 PM EDT
Flyers captain Mike Richards took a lot of heat for all sorts of problems ranging from his coach, to his captaincy, to how he handles the media when Philly’s season ended. He opened up in a big way today to clear the air.
May 12, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT
The Flyers announced that Chris Pronger, Kris Versteeg and Michael Leighton underwent successful surgeries today.
May 10, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT
Mike Richards is among the Flyers players who will need off-season surgery, but most of today’s focus was on his testy relationship with the media and the quality of his leadership.
May 7, 2011, 1:21 PM EDT
Yes, the Flyers are done and out of the playoffs after being swept by the Bruins. Gee, I wonder what might make the list of what went wrong?
May 6, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT
Ryan Kesler’s emergence in the playoffs is making all the difference for Vancouver. Also, adulation for Pekka Rinne and James van Riemsdyk, piling on Alexander Semin, and perhaps some premature looking ahead to the next round.

Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was injured after missing on a body check and hitting his head into the boards.

The Eastern Conference second round doesn’t get going until tomorrow night, but that’s not going to stop us from sounding off on who we think advances to the Eastern Conference final.

The Bruins became only the third team in NHL history to cough up a 3-0 series in last year’s semifinals against the Flyers. Can they exact their revenge this time around or will it be more of the same? Let us know in the poll.

Flyers captain Mike Richards avoids league action for his shove from behind that knocked Tim Connolly out of action in Game 6.
Apr 25, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Today’s Five Thoughts center around Alain Vigneault’s wild gamble to go with Cory Schneider instead of Roberto Luongo in Game 6. We’ll also hit on the charmed life of Ben Smith and give our take on a pair of bad hits from yesterday.
Apr 25, 2011, 2:28 AM EDT
While the Sabres are likely to be without Tim Connolly in Game 7 after being hit from behind by Mike Richards, they’re going to get Derek Roy back for Game 7 on Tuesday.
Apr 24, 2011, 7:05 PM EDT
It wasn’t pretty – in fact, Mike Richards’ hit on Tim Connolly was downright ugly – but the Flyers found a way to earn a 5-4 Game 6 in overtime. This sets up a decisive Game 7, which fits this series perfectly.
Apr 24, 2011, 6:18 PM EDT
Scott Hartnell scored the only goal of the third period to tie the game 4-4, sending Game 6 to overtime. Read this post for a recap of the action up to this point.
Apr 24, 2011, 5:29 PM EDT
The Flyers stormed back to tie the game up 3-3 in the second period, but the Sabres gained revenge on a dirty Mike Richards hit when Nathan Gerbe made in 4-3. The Flyers must score in the third period to keep their season alive.
