The Flyers are Collecting Pucks From Each Playoff Win and Mounting Them to a Board
OH MY GOD IT’S TOTALLY LIKE THAT SANTA BEARD WITH 25 SPACES FOR COTTON BALLS COUNTING DOWN TO CHRISTMAS! I LOVE THOSE THINGS!*
Flyers equipment manager Derek Settlemyre – whom you may recognize as the guy who gleefully assaults head coaches after big goals – was on FOX Good Day with Jenn Frederick this morning. He showed off a board containing 16 spaces for game pucks from playoff wins. Right now there is… one… one puck on the board, but there’s room for many more. The idea is that the Flyers will collect a puck from each win and adhere it to the board. Which means that pucks will undoubtedly start disappearing before the Flyers can get their hands on them. Unless, of course, Chris Pronger is earning his $5 million per year salary(!) by serving as a consultant on retaining game pucks.
Settlemyre also mentioned that Claude Giroux was unable to get his pre-game grilled cheese in New York. So now we know the reason for his struggles.
*My mother-in-law-to-be bought me a chocolate Christmas countdown this year and it was awesome. I’m 12.
