Flyers Early Beard Program

I guess we are all familiar with the ritual of hockey players growing out beards for the PostSeason... Some players grow one each round and shave after each round completion, while some let them grow clear through... Some don't participate by choice and some do as best they can considering genetic circumstances.

Some players, such as Coots this season and Harts in past seasons, just have beards... I've noticed that this season most of the Flyers Players started growing during the past difficult stretch of the Stretch Run, and some but not all shaved once the winning streak was snapped.

But, all in all, it seems to me that this Season the Flyers Players are getting early starts on the beards -- I know more after tonight -- and I have decided to start mine early also... I now have a few days beard going.

Interesting (to me, anyway) story... During the 2010 PlayOffs I saved my beard when the Flyers went 0-3 down to the Bruins... I then restarted near or when they tied the series up... By the time they finished Game Six of the SCF I had a long and full beard. I always wonder how good it would have been had I not been foolish enough to prematurely shave it in a faithless manner... I may have rivaled Coots' current one. LOL... I will not make that same mistake twice.

Question: What are the plans and stories concerning PostSeason Beards of the fans here... and does anyone have any interesting tales about NHL PO Beards and particularly ones involving Flyers Player?

I honestly never had the oppurtunity to grow one, 2010 was the last good chance to do so but I was still in high school at the time & it was a catholic high school school in which they required us to be shaved & groomed otherwise you would get detentions & such.

I have a year-round beard and have since my college days. I've always thought of doing a "reverse" playoff beard and shaving every day of the playoffs, but I love my beard too much to do that.

I am at 'late January Couturier' right now.



I have never got past ~mid-February Couturier though...

I have great beard growth but after that it goes a bit wild even if I 'prune' it.. silly curly hair.

I looked like a caveman in 2010. I had a bit of a beard before the playoff run and once it started I didn't shave for a couple months.

My beard is patchey. It's gotten better in the recent years but still crappy. My father couldn't grow one until he was 40. My brother though grows a great beard. I just wasn't meant to be a beard grower...

My facial hair is still in the process of developing but recently is starting to become more noticeable and thicker. Mostly on my neck, chin and sideburns. Still waiting for the cheeks to fill in. I have a pretty light mustache too.

I have a pretty large beard year round. I have recently trimmed it, however. I'll keep it going during the playoffs though

I have a beard on my back.....

BTW...I think Coots' beard was assembled from Hartnell's hair when he finally shaved off that rat's nest...

I'm just concerned that we are still not in the playoffs. I don't put it beyond the Flyers to not actually qualify. When I listen to the radio, everyone talks like we have clinched a spot. I am too superstitious and jinx-believing to be that confident.

My beard growing abilities are about equal to those of the Schenn brothers.

So probably nothing.

Bumping this sucker with a new question: Will anyone dye their beards like Voracek and Hartnell did if the Flyers ge on a roll?

My beard is gray/white... as is my hair... that would be a huge contrast.

Simmonds said they have to start calling Voracek "Black Beard" because he looks like a pirate.

I shaved earlier so that I go in clean for the start tonight. I'm not a successful beard grower unfortunately though. I get facial hair, but it's disgusting and looks exactly like Dustin Brown.

Harts looks weird... I understand that they are going for the Ginger & Black effect... as in Orange and Black.


I love that they are THIS loose... Hope that means that there are no butterflies and they can get an early jump.
