Yes, I Do Chuckle: Ed Snider, Whiner

"I talk to Ed Snider, owner of the Philadelphia Flyers, who's on the Competition Committee -- he still talks about the offside goal in (1980) that he felt cost him a Stanley Cup. You may chuckle here, but it still bothers him."

"It hasn't been working for a while now, so maybe this will get me going," Grabner said after a longer-than-usual morning skate. It was the first healthy scratch (not counting games missed for the birth of his son) for Grabner since Oct. 9, 2010, just after he was picked up off waivers from the Panthers. "I want to score goals and help the team win, obviously," Grabner said. "I haven't been doing that, so [being scratched] didn't seem too far off. I hope this helps me."

"The one thing I know about Kirk Muller is there was never a question is he going to show (up) to play," Roy said. "He was there every night and he came to play."

"The 35-year-old Swiss defenceman is playing for a contender for the first time in his NHL career as he begins his four-year US$21-million contract with the Philadelphia Flyers."

Blammo!

For Cory Schneider

Tell Snow you’d like Kyle Okposo and a prospect like Nino Niederreiter. Or go higher and ask for centre Ryan Strome, who played for Canada’s world junior team.

Andrew MacDonald broke his hand in the second period of game 4 last night. Who will take his spot? Hickey? Could we see Matt Donovan?

"Can I be honest?" Potvin said. "I was in denial for, like, 25 years and didn't want to look at [their situation] because it was so bad. Now I find myself getting very excited for them and I've really enjoyed following the team again."
