The Flyers: don't read blogs

While the local and national media, along with non-credible anonymous bloggers pontificate what may happen before the NHL’s March 9 trading deadline, the rumors have little effect inside the locker room as the Flyers prepare for the final 20 games of the regular season.

“I’ve never, in 15 years, had someone say to me that so-and-so is going to get traded for so-and-so and had it ever actually come true,” said Derian Hatcher. “The players that have been through it know that if you hear something it’s not going to be true. That’s a pretty sound rule.”


...


Essentially, trade rumors just boil down to common sense, along with what are usually false claims of “inside sources.” It is laughable to think that someone such as Flyers General Manager Bob Clarke is on the phone relaying his thoughts on trades just to see what the public’s reaction to a deal may be.

People may not like the Flyers, but we certainly take no BS

You think Clarke will actually make a deal or what? Morganti did mention Recchi again.

I wouldn't be surprized if the Flyers are feeding Tim Panaccio false rumors on purpose, just for kicks.

they need a defenseman badly if you ask me. Rathje gets too much ice time for my taste

I don't get it. It's not the Flyers saying ignore blogs, it's a columnist for a dying newspaper in a dying industry that can only rescue itself if it convinces everyone else that it possesses more credibility than Toby's Bloghaus.

Yeah. He is absolutely brutal. Did you see how much icetime he was getting after Hatcher went out? It made me sick. He is SLOOOOOW and cannot handle the puck to save his life. I really don't know how he survived in the West for all those years. I've also figured out why San Jose couldn't beat Calgary in the playoffs: Rathje played for them.

haha, if I where an NHLer I'd find it to hard to resist to do something like that.

haha, I probably would too, just to mess with people.

If you mess around with reporters, after a while they're going to turn on you.

Tim Panaccio though, the Flyers already hate him.
