These guys just wreck the locker room.
DeSean Jaccson would like to congratulate bac-2-bac Stanley Cup champions, the LA Kings. Somewhere, the 2013 Blacchawks feel left out.
Kyle Scott is the founder and editor of CrossingBroad.com. He works sans pants.
In the mean time…Conn Smythe winner Justin Williams, who was traded to the Hurricanes for some defenseman named Markov (?), now has 3 Stanley Cup wins. whew…and you thought RAJ was a poor judge of talent.
Jesus christ we fucking traded justin williams a god damn decade ago. I guarentee NONE of you: zero, zilch, nada. Not. One. Of. You fucking dipshits were bitching about how hed become a future conn smythe winner the year we traded him, when he was the proud owner of 6 goals.
So did the trade work out? They gave up on yet another player too young.
Danny markov was like plus 18 or something in the 04 playoffs and nearly helped us win a cup… It was a good trade, still is. Williams had 1 goal in 17 playoff games for us and it was in a blowout… Not 1 flyers fan was saying shit when we traded him so please stop acting like u knew all along cuz thats ridiculous
How can you say it was and still is a good trade? Ridiculous statement. Trades don’t ‘work out’ the day they are made. Yes, 20/20 hindsight is the way you evaluate whether it worked out and this one clearly didn’t. That is the basis upon which you evaluate the people who made it.
I’d love to lick Carter’s gf asshole
I like what the Flyers do with their talent evaluation. If these guys don’t produce by the time they’re 22-23 years old, you dump them, move on, and continue to not win Stanley Cups…
+1 team ozzy
Yea and if the coach doesn’t like a player (where coaches with this team have a shelf life of a gallon of milk) just get rid of them for some old has been. Don’t worry we’ll win it next year
Fast Eddie Snider traded me in 1971 for a used puck bag because I let one bad goal in. You could look it up.
Next year JVR skates with the cup and Conn Smythe, and Homer is officially a bigger asshole than RAJ.
Snider is a pussy
Mikey and Jeffy really carried the team last night….
Carter was their best player, did you not watch?
And Richards was right there with him. I love these people that see nothing but the score. Several monster face off wins by Richards, 4 takeaways, a ton of scoring chances between the two of them. People need to stop drinking ed snider’s Kool aid. They screwed up, plain and simple.
Will be tough for the OB s to explain this one off. The old argument was Quick carried the group for the last cup. This time, Quick was merely average all playoffs. In addition, it’s clear that Carter is now world class Although he didn’t win the Smythe, he was the best player on the ice. I have no idea how he looked so fresh while playing so many minutes. It was a complete coming out party for Carter, he looked like a man amongst boys out there, especially last night. Kid is finally coming into his own.
And to think, just a couple months back, I was on here actually having to defend my opinion that Carter was a better all around player than couturier. To the OB s, this is why us realistic fans laugh at you
Justin Williams one of the best playoff player ever.
Flyers should take a look how the kings & rangers don’t give up on young players.
But I suck!
Big deal. It took the Kings almost 47 years to win two Cups that I won in years 7 and 8. But I have not been able to find out why I have not won again in 40 years.
Yeah, we were checking it out. In fact Coatesy was in the booth yesterday when we were talking about it, and, um, I think it’s about a thousand difference in, ah, hockey appearances. Pretty amazing. But their Cups aren’t that different, which is kind of… weird. I don’t quite understand it.
So we’ve still got 15 years to tie your 50 year Cup drought?
So 3 of your 4 Cups in your 88 seasons were won when the league had less than 10 teams?
So your last Cup was 20 years ago, took 7 games to win and you were 1 goal away from a 74 year Cupless streak?
NY fans are so fucking stupid you almost feel bad pointing it out.
Sorry the Rangers aren’t some loveable underdog that fell heartbreakingly short with the price of Richards, Lundqvuist, Nash, St Louis.
Thought it was about the rings in NY?
I’ll be dead before the Flyers win another cup!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Happy for the both of them.
And they’ll always be Flyers in my book.
Or a “nice guy”. Either way I’m in comfortable.
The Carter/Richards obsession needs to be put to bed. They got there Cups. Good for them. Homer is not the GM here no moe. Time to see how Hexy can help Flyers get better and win a Cup. So one last time MR. CB. I don’t give a flying Fuck about Richards or Carter. Fuck em both. Let’s Go Flyers
They got THEIR cups you fuckin’ idiot!
I see what you did they’re
P.S. How in the world do they not give the Conn Smythe to Quick???
I know Williams had a great playoffs, but when your team wins the Finals in 5 games and 3 of those games go to OT (2 of which went to 2OT!), the goalie was your best player.
He wasn’t in his 2012 form, but Quick should have won the hardware again. He out-dueled King Henry, which was no easy task.
No love for me either
Because he wasn’t very good in the playoffs this year.
Other than beating the best teams in the Western Conference and then winning 3 OT games (including 2 in 2OT!) against King Henry.
The Kings beat the Hawks by out gunning them. Quick barely made a difference in that series. This isn’t baseball, the whole playoffs are taken into account.
@Andy , first thing is first , I want to sucker punch you Eden style based on your looks. 2nd Quick has been Ok , and no way played to MVP level, f@g. Just check out the box scores. Flyers fan 1975 is all u got.
If you reversed those trades tomorrow, the 2014-2015 Flyers are no closer to a Cup. We’d just have less scoring on the wing, no young shutdown center in Coots and no holes fixed on D.
Homer didn’t move Carter to LA!!!!
Love Richards, still pissed at high and wide Carter for game 6 against Chicago. But they are good hockey players with a hell of a roster around them that the Flyers haven’t had to this point.
Stop with the revisionist history. Lets see Hexy build the Flyers. He had a strong hand in LA’s growth.
OBs need to stop repeating “The Flyers didn’t trade Carter to LA!” because it still doesn’t matter.
The point of the trades were to come closer to winning the Stanley Cup, not to prevent the Kings from winning it. Nobody is actually upset that they won EXCEPT Ed “Dan” Snider and his “Mr. Snider” bootlicks who don’t like having their nose rubbed in shit.
Bad. Bad boy.
The only relevance to LA winning is that it’s another prop to use to mock the people dishing out hundreds and thousands of dollars a year to visit a Bullies museum.
No shutdown center? Dude 4th line defensive centers are on every team. Ps: Selke candidate Mike Richards is a pretty good shutdown center man himself.
I can’t believe we traded Gaborik to the Kings and he wins a cup!*
*I’ll disregard Columbus trading him to Los Angeles like my Philadelphia counter part disregards Columbus doing the same with Carter.
The point is if the Flyers don’t trade Carter to Columbus, then the Blue Jackets don’t have the opportunity to trade him to LA. He doesn’t get to LA without the Flyers trading him in the first place.
And what does ANY of that have to do with how the flyers have played offensively since the trade?
You mean how the Flyers couldn’t score at all early last season? And how in the Playoffs against the Rangers they averaged 2.2 goals per game while the Kings averaged nearly 3.5 goals per game in the playoffs with Carter being 2nd in goals and points? Bottom line is the Flyers have a long way to go and if Giroux isn’t a Hart trophy nominee the team would have been screwed.
“And what does ANY of that have to do with how the flyers have played offensively since the trade?”
Seriously? Wouldn’t their offensive be better with Richards, Carter, Giroux, JVR?
They dumped off Bobrovsky for Bryz. It NEVER ENDS. It’s not Just Carter and Richards people. This team is notorious for for trading away talented players and bringing in duds (or lesser players). When they have a chance to sign quality talent on short term deals for peanuts, they don’t. Coulda had Jagr and passed on him. It’s as if they are trying to suck while attempting to trick us into thinking they are trying to improve. Fuck Holmgren and fuck Ed Snider. If Hextal doesn’t get a long leash and they look they have for decades I’m going to lose my shit.
Does anyone here actually remember Justin Williams as a Flyer? Dude averaged barely half a point a game in 226 games and played incredibly uninspired hockey more often than not. Yea, better hold onto him in case he wins a Conn Smythe 11 years later. In fact, hold onto every player ever on the roster just in case!

Jesus christ, Kyle, shut your fucking mouth . The headline for this post should be: “Your Morning Sour Grapes: The Hindsight is Always 20-20 Edition”.
Youre taking arguements used against richards and carter when they were with the flyers and applying them three years later to a COMPLETELY different situation. No ones saying carter is a poor playoff performer now because he is a great one. HE WASNT WHEN HE WAS WITH US!!!! He had 6 years to become one with us and couldnt do it. Then he was shipped to a shitty team and whined his way out of that and to the kings, who were a much more complete team that he fit perfectly with. The team wrecker arguements, while I agree were bogus, were at least a debatable concern WHEN THEY WERE WITH US because of all those reports. No ones saying it NOW because the kings werent built around them!
And as a commenter above said, if wed have never made those trades, wed still be in the same fucking position we are now, seeing as were getting the same, if not better, offensive production in their absence. Having richards and carter wouldn’t have healed chris pronger, wouldnt have made our aging defense any younger or faster, wouldnt have increased the amount of solid defensman free agents, and wouldnt have prevented holmgren from fucking up the team. Sure they might not have traded bob, but then again whose to say they wouldnt have in a different fashion? And as we saw this season, especially in game 7 of the rangers series, a great goalie couldnt bail out our piss poor defense. But sure, lets ignore all that and scream about richards and carter, because we hate ignorant media members that run with easy, lazy, narratives, right Kyle? Fucking moron.
How come the stepfords always assume that we’re using hindsight and that none of us thought it was moronic to trade the foundation of a young team, both under long term deals for a mediocre playoff performing goalie and give him an abortion of a contract that would eventually be bought out?
Because you are stepfords!
The flyers didn’t trade Carter and Richards for Bryzgalov. They traded Carter for Voracek and the 8th overall pick (used to take Couturier) and Richards for Schenn, Simmonds and a second rounder. Because Meddling Ed Snider fucked up with Bryzgalov doesn’t mean the original trades were bad. You’re telling me that if you could trade Simmonds and Schenn and a second rounder right now for Mike Richards and his cap hit of $5.75M until the 2020 season you’d do it? No fucking way anyone would make that deal for Richards. Simmons is a winger, he’s younger, and costs almost $2M less against the cap.
Meanwhile Richards & Carter just celebrated winning their 2nd Stanley cup,while Simmonds & Schenn and the rest of the mediocre Flyers enjoyed an early playoff exit.
Will Mr. CB please respond to this after he is done getting his genitals pounded by skanky hoes
I was reading the AP article about the celebration and it stated how the post win celebrations this year and in 2012 were mostly calm with “virtually none of the violence, vandalism and arson that has followed some lakers championship victories”.
Gee I wonder why that is??
Blacks and Hispanics ?
Ding ding ding!
I have heard and read enough. Will you fucking people stop using “we” when referring to the the teams. And stop using the nicknames like you sit next to these guys in the locker room. Sound so fucking dumb
That is classic stepford lingo.
Give it up man. The stepford shit is lame as fuck. Why don’t you make a legit fucking counterpoint instead of just repeating what one of the worst talk radio hosts in the country says about the sport he knows least.
So we blew it trading richards and carter. They’re winning cups and we’re not. But there’s no guarantee we’d have won if they stayed here. If anything I’m more pissed we traded JVR or Bob than either carter or richards. The bad locker room guys stuff was bullshit, but no one remembers this blog was right at the front of propagating that shit with pictures every weekend of Richards and carter out drinking.
If you want to repeat what Kyle scott and mikey miss say about hockey and act better than people on here, you’re wasting your time and you’re a fucking loser. Watch a game and then come with a real opinion dipshit. And also, it’s not avalid excuse to be pissed because now your $180 carter jersey is worth shit. Go fuck yourself clown.
Latin King GANG BANGER D Jaccc-offff is a Sccccumbag CRIMINAL. JACCCHOLE set up his own Robbery of his own CCCRIB beCccause he a poor porch monkey and his gangbang homies is all doin it, Boi ! All jigs do is DESTROY & TAKE from this country. I’m Mike PussySmelly and I am a SCARED PUNK that diggs BLACCCK MEAT
Hey Kyle, go fuck yourself you fucking vaginal pustule.
Both Richards n Carter know they slacked off in 2011 playoffs. They know why they were moved. They thought they were above the team with the whole dry island shit. They know they tucked up and that is why they were shipped outta town. They obviously were motivated to shove it up Flyers ass. Fact will always be that they were flat out lucky to wind up together in LA. Shits history now and the fact that Horshams finest keeps rehashing how much success they are having is just plain lame. Come on man, everybody in Ottos knows you like Flyers current team. Why Keep stroking Richards n Carter. Enough with the ex Flyers love fest
I’ve had enough of this shit. All u fuckers Will still be filling the wells Fargo Center come October. You all can go stick your Horsham noses right on up Richards n Carter’s hairy asses. Hey Paul get me another stogey
Meanwhile the Flyers haven’t won the cup in 39 years.
Didn’t I set the all time Phillies hit record today? I come on to the “preeminent” Philadelphia sports blog, and I see something about the Kings?
Should have waited to break the record during the week. This blog does not have week-end hours.
because he is a total waste of life
I ate a lot of bruschetta tonight on a first date, things went unexpectedly well and I farted pure garlic smell during the first two rounds of sex. Now I’m in her bathroom dropping plops of tomato and onion. Should I finger my own asshole with this Scope I see on her sink? Advice needed quickly.
Here’s a question for all you knowledgeable hockey fans who think the Flyers would be so well off if they didn’t do the trades. The Kings call you tomorrow and say, “Hey we’ll give you Richards and his $5.75M/yr cap hit until 2020 for Simmonds, Schenn and a second rounder.” You’re gonna do that deal then right? I mean here’s your chance to undo it if it was such a bad trade in the first place…
Congratulations. You have officially posted the stupidest fucking thing on this site…..ever. Well done.
To preempt your dipshit reply of “tell me what did I say that is wrong,” here’s an equally insipid question right back at’cha: You’re such a hockey genius, would you not trade LA’s 2 Stanley Cups for our decades of futility?
There. Now you know what it’s like to feel stupid for reading that question as we all felt reading yours. All clear now, you obtuse charlatan?
Wow dude, you’re a fucking idiot. You don’t understand counterfactuals, do you? Just because Richards won two cups in LA that doesn’t mean he would’ve won two cups had he stayed in Philly. If the question is do I trade the entire flyers roster for the entire kings roster then the answer is obviously yes. But that’s not the trade the team made. What you and other dumbasses like Kyle don’t seem to understand is that keeping Richards here wouldn’t have meant we got two cups. It took the kings entire roster to win those cups.
So it looks like you’re the won with the least intelligent post ever. “Derrrr um would you trade two kings cups for no flyer cups derrrr?” That’s not even the question up for debate you fucking mongoloid.
No matter how you try to make it go away, Richards is a much better player than simmonds and schenn. He has 2 rings in 3 trips to the finals over the last 4 years. It’s not a coincidence. And yes, I thought the trade was moronic at the time.
The flyers lose because of impatience and poor talent evaluation.
You are such a fucking airhead. Your post is 100% evidence of this. Thank you for exposing yourself, yer again, and giving us all a good laugh.
And, apparently, YOU are the one unable to grasp counterfactuals (or simply unable to read or grasp moderately complex concepts). Please go away, you stupid, stupid waste of life.
I’ve always enjoyed your posts and I think you always bring valid points to the table.
I would never insult you in the manner that the handle stealer above has. In the past week I have posted twice. Once regarding the Pukemon topic, and the other time to wish Kyle well on his sick dog. The other posts have been from handle stealers.
I didn’t want you to think I would address you that way.
Thanks, and I hope you had a nice Father’s Day. No further posts on this topic will be from me, so now the troll can go back to doing what he does best.
^^not me. Please fuck off you douche nozzle.
Do you think that there should be baby changing tables in MEN’S bathrooms? @FOX29philly @QDEEZYDOTCOM @chrisfox29
I bet a lot of guessing today for the blacks 🙁
+1 fatherless child
Neither of you blogging queers can take the usual 40 seconds you put into crafting a post to acknowledge Rollins’ hit?
Getting a 2nd “writer” was totally worth it Kyle. Expanded weekend coverage for the win! Hope your dicks get stuck together.
I repeat, this blog does not have Sunday hours. It is kind of like Chick-Fila……without the milkshakes
Do you think Kyle and his new writer are docking right now?
whenever there’s no update for while, you just know that Kyle and Jim are double Dutch ruddering each other.
I was at least expecting jimbo to work weekends. Thought there would be a possible jimmy Rollins post
I was at least expecting jimbo to work weekends. Thought there would be a possible jimmy Rollins post .
Can we please get someone in here besides ex-Flyers to run this organization?
Just an FYI, I have only posted twice. Just in case you needed a count.
And we care because……….???????????
^^ Not me
Try to argue against this……haters!
As of the end of the 2013–14 season, Philadelphia has won more than 1,800 regular season games, the 7th-highest victory total among NHL teams and the most among non-Original Six teams. The Flyers also possess an all-time .578 points percentage, the second highest among NHL teams.
Just this: There is no trophy for “most wins accumulated since 1967”.
Fucking apologist douchebag!
You can take that flyers winning % & shove it up your ass. I want to see a fucking cup while I’m still alive.
How does it feel to want because that isn’t happening.
It might when the owner passes
Wow dude that is so lame that you went out and found those stats. It means exactly squat! but you can just keep regurgitating the mr. Snider routine if that makes you happy.
Flyers trading away Carter, Richards, and Williams is like Red Sox trading away Babe Ruth! 86 years with no cup! Flyers are cursed!
If you support this team, you’re an idiot and drinking the Kool aid. I wish we could just buy out the Kings and move them here. It’s the closest we’ll get to a cup!
Fuck the Flyers. And this is coming from a Flyers fan.
WE DIDNT TRADE CARTER TO LA!!!!
Stop saying “we” stepford, you’re not on the team. What a bunch of wackos.
Stop saying “Stepford,” “Kool-Aid,” and “Mr. Snider.” You’re just as bad, if not, worse.
If the shoe fits.
Maybe if you guys weren’t such enablers of an incompetent regime by throwing out worthless stats like winning% you’d get some mercy. Until you wake up and stop drinking the orange koolaid, you’re just groupies.
Pretty sure that since the Flyers traded Carter to CBJ for Voracek and basically Couturier, they won that trade considering CBJ shipped him off to LA for nothing. Im not trying to defend the Flyers, but its not their fault Carter and Richards have 2 Cups in LA. The Kings are just a really good team. And i think its time to retire the word “stepfords”. It makes you sound pretty dumb. Why are Flyers fans stepfords for continuing to support a team that has a championship drought? Isnt that what fans are supposed to do? I mean, the Eagles have a pretty large following in this city. And last time i checked, they have a longer drought. Not to mention 0 Super Bowls. But people still continue to support them. No one is making excuses for the Flyers. We are all frustrated with the lack of success in terms of Stanley Cups. But at the same time, Im not gonna just abandon the team because they dont win it all.
Huge difference between the two fan bases. Eagles fans are much more critical and ran Reid out of town. Flyers groupies like yourself keep towing the company line and never rock the boat. When have you ever heard a “homer must go” chant? Exactly.
That’s why “stepfords” rings true. People loved Richards here but after he was traded, you hate him. Why? Because geezer Ed wants you to think that way and you do it. Same thing happened with lindros. It’s a cult.
Ran Reid out of town……15 years later. I dont hate Richards at all. I hated his monster contract that they got rid of
pretty sure it wasnt gonna happen in the 1st 12 years since he went to 5 NFC championship games and 1 super bowl.
Chris, nobody ‘wants’ to abandon the Flyers. Everybody wants to win the Cup. There is a large contingent of fans that feel the only way that is going to happen is if there is a major change in how the team is run and that may only happen when fans stop showing up at the gate. I have no doubt Ed Snider wants to win.
Guys. I’ve only posted 3 times this week: the Pukemon topic, the 2nd time to wish Kyle well on his sick dog, and the 3rd time to call out this brainless cuntshit “Realist.”
All others are fake ME.
I know Junk, when will Kyle step in? This site has been going downhill fast without us.
Fuck off, fraud.
Ok sport, you let us know when your 4th comment occurs, so we can mark it down in our day planners.
What’s with these status reports! NOBODY GIVES A SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What baffles me is that Kyle can rip on Flyers’ fans for continuing to support the team by selling out every game, and then rip the bandwagon Phillies’ fans for jumping off.
I fucking hate basketball, but I had to watch the last 5 minutes just to see LeBron pout. Kind of glad Miss is off til Wednesday.
Oh, and the handle stealers are back. Fuck off.
Wouldn’t it be nice if Lebron James signed with the Sixers this off-season?
first off couts is a third or fourth line center-hands of stone-next b. shenn is a third line winger-no speed-vorecek looks decent-simmonds-slow, but can score-carter never liked here, looked great in this series, richards was decent-bad trade-you end up with three slow players, the game is about speed!!!-josh iness is a douch-big daddy is a 4 hour commercial of shit he sells-glenn -look at me , i am still relevant-mcnow is another self promoter-books, movies, whats next -whats my favorite color?
LeBron lost because all of you white racists put the juju on him, you filthy homosexuals!
Why is it that Flyers’ fans get shit for supporting them, but Eagles’ fans, who sell out every game and have amassed a 35,000+ waiting list for season tickets, don’t? Last I checked, the Birds have NEVER won a SB, and their last NFL Championship was in 1960!
Yes, I am a big fan of both teams, just not a fan of how the fans are hypocritically treated.
once again, huge difference between the two fan bases. eagles play 8 games at home also so comparing the season ticket base is apples and oranges.
you obviously are proud to be a stepford so why keep pretending you’re not. wear it like a badge of honor. hey, maybe you could get a banner with the flyers’ winning% on it.
So what if LeBron is now 2-3 in the finals and Jordan was 6-0? LeBron is better. And if you disagree, you’re half an idiot and racist. We should all be impressed that LeBron made the finals four straight years even though the entire eastern conference was dogshit except for the Pacers. What a huge achievement.
Also Riley Cooper should never be allowed out in public again and white people can’t play on the perimeter in the NBA. Am I cool yet, black guys?
