Around the Cooler 06/27/13 – Ilya’s funeral

Here’s what we’re talking about:

I mean, he’s right after all. The universe really is humongous big. And so is his paycheck for the next 14 years.

  • Ilya Bryzgalov’s inevitable amnesty has finally arrived. We’ll miss neither his play nor his cap hit, but we’ll miss the man. (0:00)
  • What should the team do with all the new cap space? Is there an answer for never-ending Flyers goalie debacle? (13:00)
  • Quick NHL Draft talk (20:00)
  • Does a goalie’s personality really affect the play of his teammates? (26:00)

A Vulgar, Bitter, and Disrespectful Obituary for the 2013 Flyers

Last Tuesday when the Orange-and-Black traveled to the crumbling Coliseum to face the Blue-and-Orange, it was the Bullies who came away black and blue. That all-but season-ending loss to the Islanders led many local and national hockey writers to cut bait on this no-good, very-bad, lockout-shortened, overpaid, oft-injured, ineffective, unlucky, uncoordinated, ungainly, uninspiring team.

Hell if I’m going to miss out on the fun!

The Flyers are now many points back with few games to go, and just wrapped up their fourth loss in a row. They currently have a 1 in 625 chance of getting the 8th playoff seed.

What the puck happened?! Damn near this exact same team earned 103 points last season! They were +32! They pummeled the Pens in the playoffs! They have the best player in the world! How could everything fall so heels-over-ass apart?

“Maybe more Mike Knuble will fix this?”

Around the Cooler 02/10/13 – Discussion: Will the NFL exist in 30 years?

Here’s what we’re talking about: 

Bernard Pollard inadvertently creating the “Tom Brady rule” in 2008.

Ravens safety Bernard Pollard: “Thirty years from now, I don’t think it will be in existence. I could be wrong. It’s just my opinion, but I think with the direction things are going — where [NFL rules makers] want to lighten up, and they’re throwing flags and everything else — there’s going to come a point where fans are going to get fed up with it… Guys are getting fined, and they’re talking about, ‘Let’s take away the strike zone’ and ‘Take the pads off’ or ‘Take the helmets off.’ It’s going to be a thing where fans aren’t going to want to watch it anymore.” (ESPN)
