Strange (and smart) power move by resident hardass Dave Hakstol, who apparently took Flyers beat writers to Olive Garden today to warm up his coverage before the season gets underway.

It’d be easy to joke about how taking a group of people to Olive Garden would make them significantly less likely to be kind, but knowing what we know about the greasy slimeballs who cover the Orange and Black, a dish of soggy pasta and maybe a little bit of wine will go a long way in securing favorable coverage from the scriptuals. And it’s started already– here’s Hakstol at the ribk:

Good thing Timmay has Hakstol to foot his Italian food (ostensible) bills, because we heard last year that Panotch had his corporate card taken away by CSN.

    The only worse meal is if he took them to one of the tourist traps Genos or Pats. Oh or BWW.

      Read the Tweet…

      • Jimmy from Boston August 13, 2015 at 1:45 pm

        Ahhh Kyle u did it again. Good one sir.

    • Tyrone Biggins August 13, 2015 at 5:13 pm

      I guess in canadia the Olive Garden is considered good food.

  • Meh August 13, 2015 at 1:37 pm

    This says a lot about both the legitimacy of the Flyers media and the taste level of hockey people

  • Bob August 13, 2015 at 1:41 pm

    The Olive Garden has delicious food. Nice gesture by the Flyers’ head coach.

    • real August 13, 2015 at 2:00 pm

      that is some not-so-subtle trolling by a fake bob

      • Bob August 13, 2015 at 2:04 pm

        So saying that Olive Garden has good food makes one a troll? I beg to differ, sir.

  • Jimmy from Boston August 13, 2015 at 1:46 pm

    On a serious note these writers are the worst for the 4 big sports in Philly

    I was going to get upset when Coach Haskell put in this expense report, but Homer — in his new role on the business side of the organization — pointed out that they still have their “Never-Ending Pasta Bowl” special, so this is actually a good value. Word has it that Panoch walked out with the extra breadsticks.

    No shock here. Their standards in food are as bad as it is in journalism.

  • Ed August 13, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    I sincerely cannot believe that Bill Meltzer hasn’t put all of these buffoons on the unemployment line. Only hockey writer in the city that has a clue what he’s talking about.

    The Flyers beat has gone the way of Saturday Night Live….

    When you lose Seravalli, San Flippo and Gormley in a span of three years, what’s left is so bad it’s not even funny.

  • cheesedick August 13, 2015 at 2:10 pm

    Hopefully not the one in delco…place sucks. actually, everything in delco sucks.

  • Bob August 13, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    they were prob at the one near the skate zone in voorhees….either way, the could have gone to about 50 better italian restaurants near by instead of that shit hole…

  • William Rhodes August 13, 2015 at 2:59 pm

    OG is ok for a lunch every now and then but only soup, salad and breadsticks. God help you if you get an entree.

  • Shut it Down August 13, 2015 at 3:14 pm

    Good move by the coach, these fat trolls were probably stoked to stuff their gullets with a never ending pasta bowl.

  • Sean M August 13, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    Panach is clearly pissed that there is two people between him and Hakstol at the table

    • Tru_Writer August 13, 2015 at 3:24 pm

      Nah… He’s just pissed that he has to drink iced tea and not chianti because comcast slapped his pee-pee about his expenses.

  • It looks like August 14, 2015 at 12:12 am

    Hakstol is a fuckin racist, guess he cant invite any black guys to dinner. Where’s stephen a? Wayne simmonds better watch out, he’s one bucket of kfc away from being traded. Of course im only basing this off of marcus hayes’s and stephen a’s & lesean mccoys rationale. But its a picture of all white guys, so it must be true.
