Funny thing with the Philly media, is while they're still good for the day-to-day information, basically any signings or trades TSN was getting it first. McKenzie had the Giroux and Carter signings before anyone in Philly, and it was funny watching the Philly guys scramble and see things like "confirmed by my sources." Maybe I think that way because unlike most people in Philly, they don't have the means or want to be in touch with the Canadian media.
The coverage of the Hamhuis dealings last year was epic. Everyone in Canada was adamant Hamhuis was never signing with us, and then adament that Holmgren was shopping him on Draft Day. Meanwhile, in Philly we see from some people "Relax, you'll get your Hamhuis," and something along the lines of "the reports of Hamhuis being shopped are false and the Flyers intend to sign him."
