Best of luck to classy Chuck Gormley, who is leaving CP as #Flyers writer and covering Caps for CSN in D.C. Welcome aboard, Randy Miller.
Flyers got Nylander in return clearly

At best, Meltzer is on par with the guy that fetches Timmy P's coffee.

I don't know whether you are serious or not.

Bill Meltzer is by far the best writer the Flyers have. Panotch is by far the worst.

Those that think Tim P and Eskin suck are mostly people that don't like facing reality.

They bring the facts and do it PROFESSIONALLY. That's the key.

LOL!

This post ties in exactly with what I was saying my last post.

I plead of you, provide some tiny inkling of evidence that there is a better hockey writer in Philly, or the greater Northeast, than Panotch.

No doubt in my mind he gets scooped up by SI or TSN soon.

In case anyone is wondering...yes. Oysterhead is indeed trolling. Don't bother getting indignant.

good effort. But can you keep it up for 5 pages. Thats the mark of a true troll.

Best writer is Bill meltzer. The guy that writes on the flyers homepage is a pretty decent writer. Bill fliechman ( sp)

Bill Meltzer is definitely the best, but he's not really a beat writer. Gormley was probably the best of him.

And this new guy Randy Miller has been with the Phillies for awhile and he is bad. He's also from Pittsburgh and is a big Penguins fan so this should be fun. However he did write 'Harry the K' which was really good.

Gormley was getting ALL the key interviews. He got Snider to talk about Richards trade, he seemed to be the "Flyers choice" to break news. I am not a big fan of the Philly media in general, but truly, most teams "beat writers" are not very good. The local Ottawa beat writers are a national joke (Bruce Garrioach anyone).

To get my hockey news I go:
1. Hfboards. I don't need to hit 10 websites, this place is all I need. Anything "newsworthy" ends up posted and discussed on here. Love it.
2. Bob Mckensie (A true journalist)
3. Bill Meltzer (A detailed hockey analyst that goes beyond)
4. Sarah Baicker (gives the Tim P details without the 20 years of baggage/hate)


Thats about it.

I remember when "The Panotch" called Jason Smith a throw-in forward that doesn't matter when the Flyers traded Pitkanen. I'm pretty sure he said it in the 3rd person and referred to himself as "Panotch"

You should not post anything while you are smoking crack ohead. However,I have to admit you do make me laugh. Is it wrong to laugh at someone else's expense?
