Recent Flyers Scandals

With the growing trend of the Flyers' media coverage becoming more and more like a reality TV show, and the recent rumor of JvR's hip surgery (or lack thereof) I thought it might be interesting to discuss and rank the biggest Flyers scandals/rumors of the last 3-4 years. The Flyers may not have won a cup since 1975, but they never cease to be one of the most entertaining organizations both on and off the ice.

The options (feel free to mention any others i may have missed / forgotten)

-Howard Eskin reporting JvR possibly delaying his off-season hip injury to avoid being traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets

-Dry Island (and the supposed lack of participation)

-Jeff Carter post-Blue Jackets trade unhappiness staying in Sea Isle (and the reported visit of Rick Nash and Howson to his house)

-(supposedly) Jeff Carter and the former Mrs. Hartnell

-Chris Pronger - Stanley Cup puck stealer

-Mike Richards in 2009 refusing to talk to the Philly media

I bet I know how this thread will go.

Here is a reminder:

"13) Libel: Any posts libeling players, prospects, or hockey personnel. It's not acceptable to post that you heard Player X has a drinking/drug/sex/personal problem from a "good" source. Do not post information that can be considered defamatory without a link to a credible media source. Other forums, personal websites, hearsay, and personal testimonials are not considered credible.

I'm guessing this is mainly for that ridiculous Potulny rumor from a few years ago? Otherwise this thread sounds like a dud because we won't be able to discuss anything.

Are we allowed to turn this into a thread of completely ridiculous, made up rumors?

Because I heard that jakub voracek was quitting hockey to enroll in clown school

How about Briere/Panaccio leaking that the Flyers leadership group had to have a sit-down with Bryz to teach him how to be a "better teammate"?

It's funny to read about the JVR thing because when he rumored to be moved to Toronto around the trade deadline timeframe but had that lingering concussion, he was all over twitter talking about driving his new Audi around.

If you have a "severe" concussion, do you normally drive? (a legit question)

What Potulny rumor? I knew him pretty well, he was a pretty good guy - though he did live with Carter...

A few "well placed" rumours:
  • Daniel Brière has had so many rookies stay at his house, he receives government aid as a licensed preschool.
  • Sean Couturier lost his front teeth biting his tongue while falling to 8th in last year's draft.
  • Sergei Bobrovsky can say more than "Bob" in English.
  • Chris Pronger is not as injured as reports say he is; he is merely hopelessly despondent that the damage from Grabovsky's stick prevents him from traveling back in time to kill Sarah Connor.
  • Matt Carle, as an impending UFA, began "tryouts" for other teams by demonstrating his skill at hitting their players with tape-to-tape passes.
  • Peter Laviolette has been diagnosed with diabetes. As a result, his doctors have advised him to only destroy Diet Coke machines.

"Recent Flyers Scandals"...I wasn't aware that this was a gossip site.

Slow off-season I guess.

Today is the longest day imaginable to be a Flyers fan - the media is filled with SC stories or Flyers west stories...

I think we all just needed a distraction.
