  1. FLYERS BLOW OUT ST. LOUIS Michael Neuvirth made 34 saves and the Flyers powerplay was clicking to lead the Flyers to a 6-2 victory over Western powerhouse St. Louis Blues. The Blues controlled much of the 1st period and it was the goaltending of Michael Neuvirth that gave the Flyers a chance to escape the first period with a 1-0 lead. The Flyers came out in the 2nd period and took over with 3 goals in the first 12 minutes. The line of Patrick Berglund-Paul Stastny-Jaden Schwartz brought the Blues to within two as the period ended, but Wayne Simmonds put a stop to the comeback three minutes into the third period before Shayne Gostisbehere sealed the victory with a powerplay goal late in the third.

  2. Islanders Survive Flyers Comeback, Win 5-3 November 25, 2015 | Posted by: rittflyers Leddy celebrates his late goal to give the Isles a 5-3 Win The Islanders powerplay led them to a 3-0 lead early in the 2nd, but the Flyers managed to pull themselves back into the game before Nick Leddy beat Mason shortside and off the post to give the Islanders a 4-3 lead. Brock Nelson scored an empty netter to seal the win. Scott Laughton was credited with a goal after the puck hit Nick Leddy and beat Halak and Matt Read notched his first two of the season to get that monkey off of his back, but the rest of the Flyers offense was silent.

  3. GhostBear Scores Another Game-Winner, Flyers Beat Oilers 5-4 November 03, 2015 | Posted by: rittflyers Lecavalier Celebrates Gostisbehere's GWG Shayne Gostisbehere scored his 2nd goal of the season, and 2nd GWG of the season to give the Flyers a 5-4 victory last night in Edmonton. The Flyers started off firing everything they could at Ben Scrivens, courtesy of a 5-on-3 penalty, but could only get one by Scrivens. The Oilers countered with a very strong second period and took a 3-1 lead to the locker room. Both teams came out firing from every angle, Raffl and Voracek both scored early in the third to tie the game, but Jordan Eberle gave the Oilers the lead back but Brayden Schen would tie it back up after some pretty tic-tac-toe passing between Schenn, Simmonds, and Couturier. Minutes later, Shayne Gostisbehere would find a loose puck at the mid boards and fire a wrister that just beat Scrivens five-hole to give the Flyers a 5-4 lead that they would hold onto. "I was just trying to get the puck on net and it found a hole and in it went." said Shayne Gostisbehere.

Late in the third period after Boston scored on the powerplay to tie the game up Shayne Gostisbehere ripped a one-timer that beat Subban through a screen to give the Flyers a 4-3 Lead that they would not relinquish. Brayden Schenn would add an empty netter for his 4th point of the night and give the Flyers a 5-3 Victory

  8. New Faces: Sam Gagner(Trade), Evgeny Medvedev(FA), Michal Neuvirth(FA), Radko Gudas(Trade/Injury) Gone: Nicklas Grossmann(Trade), Ray Emery(FA) The Flyers missed the playoffs last year due to shaky defense and a lack of secondary scoring and those need to improve if the Flyers want to see the post-season again. Sam Gagner joins the Flyers after Ron Hextall weaseled a deal with the Coyotes that saw Nicklas Grossmann and injured Chris Pronger going to the desert. Gagner is expected to provide more secondary scoring, but he won't have to shoulder the offensive load that he had to shoulder for Phoenix and Edmonton. Evgeny Medvedev, the 33-year old KHL defenseman, that GM Ron Hextall signed last year will have to make the adjustment to the smaller rink in North America, but should he make an easy adjustment he could easily be the Flyers best defenseman this year. OFFENSE The offense is led by elite forwards Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds and will rely heavily on that trio to score in bunches. The rest of the forwards can chip in goals, but they need to do it with more consistency. Brayden Schenn has been steadily improving his point totals every year and will be expected to be more of a threat and consistent, while Sean Couturier is projected to get more offensive opportunities if rookie Scott Laughton can make the team out of Training Camp. Michael Raffl will start the season with Giroux and Voracek and has been a pleasent surprise for the Flyers. Vincent Lecavalier and RJ Umberger are expected to improve on their dismal seasons, but perhaps new head coach Dave Hakstol will breath new life into the two veterans. DEFENSE The defense was the achilles heel of the Flyers last year and there hasn't been much of an improvement to the blueline to say otherwise. Evgeny Medvedev is the newcomer and could be the best defenseman the Flyers have this year. Mark Streit is still the top defenseman in Philly, but at 36 years old and a one-year deal he could be shipped out if the Flyers struggle. Michael Del Zotto recieved a new two year deal to stay in Philly and his offensive skills will be needed on the blueline to get the puck out of the zone. Luke Schenn, Nick Shultz, Andrew MacDonald and Radko Gudas will fight for the remaining spots. Rumors are that the Flyers will try to move one or two of those four defenseman to make cap room and also clear up room for the rookies. Shayne Gostisbehere, Robert Hagg and Brandon Manning are at the head of the line for call-ups and should see some action this year. GOALTENDING Steve Mason had a career year and did not recieve any recognition for his season. Despite leading the league in 5v5 SV% along with being near the top of every category he did not recieve a single Vezina vote. Look for him to continue his stellar play in net and with Michal Neuvirth as his back up the goaltending has been shored up and is no longer the circus that it has been in the past. Best Case The Flyers get great secondary scoring, the defense cleans up it's act and Steve Mason continues to play like the elite goalie that he arguably is. They claim a wildcard spot and get to play in April Worst Case The Defense falls apart, Giroux/Voracek miss a considerable amount of time, Mason regresses. Flyers miss playoffs and sit at the bottom of the East.
  9. In an effort to kickstart some more dynasties on GMG, I'll be posting my Flyers NHL16 BAGM over here as well. My main avenue of reporting is over at Dynasty Nation( along with a twitter account Currently I am creating a ton of missing prospects(already drafted out to the 2019 draft) along with various movie characters(Charlie Conway, Doug Glatt, Denis Lemieux, etc.) and I'm looking to get this going by the Season Opener.
  10. What game are you using? YAY MORE Hockey Dynasties. We need MORE of these. Hopefully with NHL16's improvements, EHM:EA and FHM2 also being out and both solid hockey sims
  11. Getting hot at the right time it would seem. Sucks you lost Nyqvist though...
  12. Pretty solid month. Interesting trade for Tarasenko, you using NHL15?
  13. Long range games seem to be good. Didn't really play the who's a regen of who game, but there are late round gems. Only issue I've noticed is that there are an abundant amount of players playing past 37 and for some their Physical Attributes aren't degrading. Tweeted Riz about it and I'm gonna be posting this on SI Games.

  15. Another excellent month. Only blemish was losing to St. Petersburg in the Lamar Hunt trophy, but we decided to start a lot of our youth after our starters played 4 days earlier. I received another Manager of the Month award after going undefeated in League play. We've taken over 1st place in the NSAC East with Greensboro nipping at our heels. Balanced scoring is leading the way with 9 different scorers(Guzman leads the way with 6).
  16. UBL 1910 Report Cleveland is a dominant force in the UBL winning 11 Championships, including 5 in the last decade. The Washington Freedom are the only team, out of the original 8, that have not won a single championship(Chicago won their 1st in 1909). Despite sporting the best win percentage out of all the teams, Detroit has only won 6 championships. St. Louis quickly asserted themselves in the UBL with two championships(1904, 1908). Records
  17. 2012-13 Flyers Preview Key Additions: Brian Campbell(TRADE) Key Losses: Dennis Wideman(Trade) The Flyers had an exciting playoff run that ended in with them breaking their Stanley Cup drought. Everyone returns from that team and are one year better. GM Nick Ritt added all-star defenseman Brian Campbell to an already tough blueline. A repeat is not out of the question. OFFENSE: The Offense returns very much the same from last year with Kane, Giroux, van Riemsdyk and Tavares one year older. The top two lines can be any combination of Giroux, Kane, JVR, Tavares, Spezza and Gagne, causing an numerous headaches for opposing teams. The third line of McCauley-Richards-Williams can shut down a line and score goals while the 4th line of Brown-McClement-Talbot make a very strong 4th line. Waiting in the wings are Sean Couturier, Kyle Palmieri, Vladamir Tarasenko and Carl Hagelin. Defense: This group also returns with the addition of Brian Campbell, who is a major upgrade over Dennis Wideman. Look for Zach Bogosian to finally make his debut in the orange and the black, likely pairing up with veteran Kim Johnsson or young Alex Pietrangelo. There is a great mixture of vets and youngsters that will make opposing forwards work very hard for their scoring chances. Coach Carpenter has plenty of combinations that he can utilize on the blueline. Shea Weber, Joni Pitkanen, Alex Pietrangelo and new comer Brian Campbell can all be leaned on for a ton of minutes night in and night out. Goaltending: Pekka Rinne is this team's starter and is now regarded as an elite goaltender after his exceptional showing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season. He'll need to be consistent throughout the whole season to be in the running for a Vezina nomination. Look for either Jonas Hiller or Braden Holtby to secure the backup role. Holtby is ready to take over the back up role, but could still stay with the Phantoms if GM Nicholas Ritt chooses to keep Hiller around as the backup. Rumors are that Hiller would like a starting role and may request a move. GM Nick Ritt would not comment on this rumor. STARTING LINEUP
