Flyers’ Top 20 Goal Scorers All-Time

Founded in 1967, the Philadelphia Flyers have been one of hockey’s most successful franchises over the last half-century. They have the third-highest all-time points percentage among NHL teams, trailing only the Montreal Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knights, a team that has yet to play three full seasons. This is the Flyers’ 52nd season. Unless the remainder of 2019-20 is cancelled, they will make the playoffs for the 40th time in franchise history, a playoff appearance rate of nearly 77%. ...

Rams losing kicker Greg Zuerlein to Dallas Cowboys in free agency

Greg Zuerlein, the placekicker whose 57-yard field goal sent the Rams to the Super Bowl two seasons ago, became the team’s latest important free-agent loss Friday when he agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys. The three-year deal with a base value of $7.5 million, first reported by the NFL Network, reunites him with John Fassel, who was the Rams’ special-teams coach for Zuerlein’s eight seasons with the Rams before leaving in January for the same role with the Cowboys. The news came on a day t...

I listened to Dylan's new song twice now — that's 34 minutes of listening — and I'm almost ready to talk about the lyrics.

I need to hear things about 5 times to have a decent feeling of understanding, but I'm going to try anyway, with the help of the written text, here (at Genius, where there are some annotations, but they're not at all time-tested and I see inaccuracies at the first glance). The song begins with JFK in Dallas, "led to the slaughter like a sacrificial lamb" and asking those who are leading him if they know who he is. They sure do, and "they blew off his head while he was still in the car." So, an u...

Wild’s Prospect Problem & Guerin’s Plan to Fix It

The Minnesota Wild have a prospect problem. It’s on the verge of being fixed, but it’s up to current general manager, Bill Guerin, to continue fixing it. Bill Guerin (AP Photo/John Locher, File) In order to keep the franchise moving forward towards becoming a contender in the Western Conference, Guerin will have to be smart, shrewd and downright devious. He’s also going to have to do it while rebuilding the major departments he will rely on for his information and mitigating the dam...

Bob Dylan just released his first new song in eight years. It's a 17-minute murder ballad about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. From the lyrics to Murder Most Foul: “It was a dark day in Dallas, November ’63. The day that will live on in infamy.

Byron Jones: Dallas' lack of interest had to do with CBs on roster, not money

On R.R. Reno’s Faulty History

In a widely criticized essay on current state imposed social distancing, First Things editor R.R. Reno said the following about social reaction to the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic: More than one hundred years ago, Americans were struck by a terrible flu pandemic that affected the entire world. Their reaction was vastly different from ours. They continued to worship, go to musical performances, clash on football fields, and gather with friends. After insisting that Americans of 1918 understood metho...

Thoughts On Dylan Larkin

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - One of the things I’ve wondered this year is how much Steve Yzerman discusses his early years in Detroit with Dylan Larkin. Yzerman went through tough times in Detroit and eventually was rewarded. What advice does he give Larkin on how to handle things? “I have had very positive talks with Steve throughout the season,” Larkin wrote via email. “He has been very helpful and a mentor to me as someone who has been in this situation a few times as a p...

Truckers find coronavirus road is tough, but they can’t stop

The nation, he said, would crumble without people like him. Yet, when truckers pull into some distribution centers to pick up goods, they can’t go to the bathroom inside – another social distancing edict brought on by the coronavirus. Sometimes, they are met with handwritten posters pointing them to makeshift facilities. “In the last two days, I’ve used a porta-potty twice,” said Scott Braden, a long-haul trucker from Bellflower. He said his porta-potty experiences were in Central California. “H...

Mock 1.0Mock 2.0 In this series, I’ve been running the Tankathon simulator for the draft lottery on a daily basis and mocking the results for the top 10 leading up to the 2020 NHL draft — or until the actual lottery takes place to determine the official draft order.

Return from Peru

You’ve likely heard the story about how the Peace Corps has not only withdrawn its more than 7,300 volunteers from countries around the world but also fired them. All of them. Immediately. Evacuation was probably inevitable and wise – though it seems reasonable to ask whether some volunteers may have been safer remaining in country than returning to the US. The decision to fire them all summarily was callous, gratuitous and inane. But I wanted to TPM Reader MA’s story of his son’s rushed evacuat...

Blues Send Pronger to the Rafters

Earlier this year, I had the chance to take my youngest son to a St. Louis Blues game, where we sat in the seats that used to be my parents’ season tickets. Now my son is a Minnesota Wild/North Stars fan, so the fact that it was against the Dallas Stars made it special and the fact that Dallas won made him even happier. Add the fact that it was the day after his birthday and I think he scored a hat trick. The one thing he didn’t want to do that night, however, was go to the pre-game Hall of ...

Best NHL Player From Each U.S. State

The game of hockey still remains fourth among the major sports behind basketball, baseball and football in the United States, but the game has grown nationwide over the past few decades.
