In an effort to close up the gap between they and the 8th place Islanders, the Flyers made two trades. The first trade sent LW Harry Zolnierczyk to the Anaheim Ducks for minor league LW Jay Rosehill. No major improvements on either side, as it essentially swaps two depth guys. The second trade comes with a bit more aftershock, as Michael Leighton and a 2015 third round pick were sent to the Columbus Blue Jackets for goalie Steve Mason. In 2011-2012, Mason amassed a 16-26-3 record with 3.39 GAA. This year, he was 3-6-1 with a 2.95 GAA. This move... Continue reading

When we last spoke (metaphorically, of course), it looked as though the Eagles had found their next head coach. Notre Dame's Brian Kelly looked poised to step into the shoes Andy Reid filled for 14 long seasons. Names like Jay Glazer and Chris Mortensen seemed to believe that just a... Continue reading
