    Philadelphia Flyers NHL Draft Preview: Macklin Celebrini, Berkly Catton and the Center Prospects

    Philadelphia Flyers NHL Draft Preview: Macklin Celebrini, Berkly Catton and the Center Prospects

    Let’s get into the 2024 NHL Entry Draft! On today’s show, Charlie and Bill are beginning the draft process. The Philadelphia Flyers will draft 12th in the first round, as well as have one of the final four picks in the first round as well, as a result of the Florida Panthers reaching the conference final.
    Philly may have a pair of second round picks as well, a compensatory pick (#51) as a result of not signing Jay O’Brien, and potentially #36 from Columbus, but the Blue Jackets have until the end of the first round to let the Flyers know if they’re surrendering this year’s or next year’s second rounder.
    With a possible 4 picks in the top 51, Philadelphia has a chance to fill a ton of roster holes, and there isn’t a bigger hole than at center. Today, Charlie & Bill are breaking down the center prospects the Flyers may have their eye on.

    Alexei Kolosov Returning to KHL? F-Around Friday: Flyers, Friends, Fights

    Of course, on a mid-May edition of F-Around Friday, with the Stanley Cup Playoffs in full swing, we have Philadelphia Flyers news. Sort of. Maybe.
    Conflicting reports coming out of Russia/Belarus are alluding to the idea that Philly goalie prospect Alexei Kolosov might be homesick enough to give up his NHL dream, at least for now, and return home to play in the KHL.
    Bill and his honorary co-host Frankie, discuss the rumor, before getting into some playoff talk and then the official F-Around Friday topic- FIGHTS!

    Bobrovsky, JVR, Walker & more: Checking on former Flyers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs

    It’s a fun game we play every spring, torturing ourselves over which player who once played for the Orange and Black is now excelling elsewhere on a Stanley Cup contender.
    While the days of Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Justin Williams and Patrick Sharp are behind us, there are still plenty of former Flyers still alive in this year’s postseason.
    Bill & JP update each series and the performance of each former Flyer thus far.

Pretty Good

Casual listener/reader from the BSH but have been impressed with this podcast and the hosts. They’re not perfect but can foresee them getting there and soon. I will continue to listen and engage. Keep it up👍

This show is great for me!

Gave up watching games when they chased out Kate. Mostly because the Organization doesn’t care about hockey. But I love hockey. This year I didn’t watch or listen to a single game but caught every episode of Phly Hockey Podcast. I like the thoroughness . I like the rants. I like the off the wall opinions. Well done.

Charlie O’Connor

The only reason to listen to this podcast is to get Charlie O’Connor’s input and analysis. He’s professional, knowledgeable, and articulate, and he’s bogged down by the rest.
I’ve listened on and off over the years to BSH, and I tuned in most of this year, and the rest of the crew are just insufferable. They’re your basic, whiny fans who are fortunate enough to have a mic in front of them. None of them actually know anything about hockey outside of the Flyers, and it constantly shows. They’ve been doing this or some iteration of this show for long enough, you’d think they’d have grown a bit by now.
Unfortunately, this is where Charlie is now, and it’s the only place to listen to him, so I will continue skipping through each show until he is present.
Oh, and change the intro. Every time I’m welcomed and greeted to the show, I have to stop the impulse to turn it off it sounds so bad.
