Of course, none of that catching up had anything to do with the Philadelphia Flyers. Nonetheless, if you missed our voices, you can listen to us babble on for nearly an hour about Geoff's Thin Mints addiction and my apparent bewilderment that there are Washington Nationals fans in Washington, D.C. We tried to get this episode up on Tuesday before the Sharks game, but we had editing issues (appreciate that, crashed hard drive). You'll have to excuse the talk of "looking ahead" to the San Jose game, then. Don't worry -- hockey talk was certainly secondary this week. http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2012/2/29/2833867/philadelphia-flyers-podcast-bsh-radio-48 http://feeds.rapidfeeds.com/?iid4ct=6521797 BSH Radio 48: In Which We Barely Mention Danny Briere (Or Hockey, For That Matter) We're back with another edition of BSH Radio, and we had a lot of catching up to do.

Not all, but most. Hear all about which Flyers beat writers we would take to our deserted island, what we would get the Flyer we drew in Secret Santa (with Googling advice from Travis), and, of course, a brief suggestion about how to explain Eurovision to a toddler.

Topics covered: - Injuries to Matt Read, Danny Briere and whoever else - Chris Pronger being out of the lineup and how that hurts the defense - How Pronger's absence has a trickle down effect on the entire defensive unit, all the way to Adirondack - That whole thing with Ilya Bryzgalov - The general sort of "eh, this team is okay" feeling that's surrounding the Flyers right now - Our impending masthead trip to Glens Falls - Other stuff http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2011/11/2/2533655/bsh-radio-45-chris-pronger-ilya-bryzgalov-and-just-about-everything http://feeds.rapidfeeds.com/?iid4ct=6405809 BSH Radio 45: Chris Pronger, Ilya Bryzgalov, And Just About Everything Else Hey, new radio show!

This was done at the end of a very long day for all of us, so while we try to make sense of it, we also largely try to cope with it. Is it good radio? Who knows. But it was almost cathartic for us to get it out and discuss. This wasn't your typical radio show since it was largely a free flow of ideas, thoughts, questions, and vulgar statements. There wasn't even a proper introduction. Or a proper conclusion. Doesn't matter.

From the goaltending to the offense to the defense to Peter Laviolette to everything in between, there's plenty to talk about this week. Unfortunately, we also spend a good deal of the show talking about the ongoing, never-gonna-stop Mike Richards saga. It's old and tired and... still a topic of conversation, unfortunately.

But really, let's not focus on that, because the Flyers need to win tonight. We discuss the game, the Flyers chances in it, some injury stuff as it pertains to Jeff Carter and Chris Pronger... and we discuss crappy pop music from around the turn of the century.

Okay, we'll admit: this Part 3 isn't full of much hockey talk, but we do start out talking a bit about our impressions of the Phantoms and their local fans after a second night of hockey in upstate NY. Of course, we're doing this talking while, uh, "preparing" for a night out in Saratoga. It involved beverages. Draw your own conclusions. So this episode is a little out there, but that's not to say it's not entertaining radio. You even get to hear a fight between Don and Geoff, which is pretty hilarious to even just think about.

We'll have a ton of stories this coming week, including a lengthy interview with Phantoms coach Joe Paterson, but in terms of the radio show, we have three more parts to get up on the site.

So they'll be up over the next few days, and while the BS to hockey talk ratio is incredibly low, we still think the shows have the potential to be pretty entertaining.

Reigning champeen mikefive was challenged by Justin F., and much like an episode of Maury before the commercial break, the results will SHOCK YOU. Well, this isn't a paternity test, but whatever. Ben was absent this week, so after the SHOCKING TRIVIA GAME, Geoff and I got into the issues of the week. Should we be concerned about the Flyers right now? What exactly should we be worried about? Also, we get pretty in-depth about Eric's article on who the Flyers should face in the postseason. We talk about charts and graphs and stuff.

One game left in the <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/teams/PHI">Flyers</a> season, perhaps. They're 5-0 in this situation, but this Finals thing is a different animal. We don't know how this will turn out, and honestly, the Boston series and the entire past doesn't matter at this point.</p> <p>We do, however, know a few things. We know that the Flyers lost Game 5, for example. On this week's BSH Radio, Ben, Geoff and I talk about how the Flyers got here. What went wrong in Game 5? Was pulling <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/players/54268/Michael_Leighton">Michael Leighton</a> the right move? Can they take the performance from the second half of that game and improve upon it for Game 6?</p> <p>And what about Game 6? Will we see any line shuffling?

Sorry about that. We taped on Tuesday night and I was supposed to have this up Wednesday morning, but those are the breaks. So what that it's Friday? </p><p>Anyway, as mentioned, it was a shorter show this week. Ben, Geoff and I talked for about 20 minutes regarding Jeff Carter's injury and how it hinders the Flyers chances going forward. We were then joined by Shaun Kreider, known as KreiderDesigns here on the site, to talk a little bit about the BSH Store that opened for business the other day. </p><p> Shaun spoke about the creative process and how he came up with some of the ideas.

We talked goalies, from Backlund to Jeremy Duchesne (now a Flyer?!) to Nic Riopel. We talked forwards, from Patrick Maroon to Stefan Legein. </p><p>Tim gave us updates on Mika Pyorala and Danny Syvret. Syvret is injured, by the way. We also checked on on Ryan Dingle (yeah, the throw-in from the Pronger deal) to see if he ever has a shot at making the NHL. Greeted with laughter.</p><p>Finally, we discuss the future of the Phantoms in Glens Falls and when we should expect to see them in the Lehigh Valley.&nbsp;</p><p>After Tim leaves us, we play back this week's trivia competition.

Everybody is for sale in Florida, it seems, so the timing is right to have Donny on the show. We talked about his team, his thoughts one what they might look like after Wednesday's deadline and if they'll be a competitive hockey team come that time. David Booth will be playing tonight for the first time against the Flyers, so we talked to Donny about the impact that may have on Wednesday night's game. We also chatted about Tomas Vokoun and his likely availability at Wednesday's deadline. Oh, and a Dennis Seidenberg reference is dropped. We then move on to some more Flyers-centric stuff, specifically Ray Emery's potentially career-ending injury and what that means for the Flyers moving forward at the deadline. Roloson? Vokoun? Ellis? Biron? We also listen in on a voicemail from a caller angry about Sidney Crosby. http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2010/3/3/1334718/bsh-radio-7-don-from-litter-box http://feeds.rapidfeeds.com/?iid4ct=4964730 BSH Radio 7: Don from Litter Box Cats talks Vokoun, Panthers, trades As we prepare for the trade deadline, we welcome Donny Rivette from Litter Box Cats, a man who covers possibly the most active deadline team in the league.

Mr. Boone gave us his justification for making the comments, which were considered outlandish by some and downright offensive by others. He also responded to a few questions and comments from BSH readers, as well as whether or not he feels he should be temporarily suspended from his position at the Gazette for the comments he made. The conversation is an interesting case study in just how differently certain members of the traditional media understand the difference between what is printed in the newspaper and what is printed on the Internet. It's safe to say that those of us who are exclusively on the web see this divide differently. Moving on, Ben joins the show and the three of us chat about the salary cap issues, or lack thereof, that the Flyers face heading into this offseason. We address criticisms of Danny Briere and go off on several tangents, including wondering if the Philadelphia Kixx are still around town. We also answer a question or two from listeners ourselves because, well, it's the Olympic break and there's not much else to talk about.

We talk about Ray Emery's injury and how it'll affect his contract talks. Does he think it should? We'll talk about a column he wrote over the weekend that seemed to be a veiled criticism of Paul Holmgren. He tells us if it was. Sticking with the same subject, we ask SanFillippo if Holmgren is really, truly serious about saying that he won't trade Jeff Carter. We also talk about the Olympics and a few media-related things before some fun talk about who the best player in the locker room to get a quote from might be. It's a 40 minute chat and his answers are unbelievably in depth. It's highly recommended. After the interview, Ben joins the show from snowy, Internet-less D.C. The three of us talk about the Emery injury, what it means for the future at the goaltender position in Philadelphia, Jeff Carter's hit on Anssi Salmela, the Olympics, and the potential that the NHL Draft and the NHL All-Star Game could come to Philadelphia. http://www.broadstreethockey.com/2010/2/10/1304380/bsh-radio-4-anthony-sanfillippo http://feeds.rapidfeeds.com/?iid4ct=4905510 BSH Radio 4: Anthony SanFillippo Talks Flyers, Emery & More On this week's edition of Broad Street Hockey Radio, Geoff and I have a lengthy discussion with SanFillippo about everything you could possibly imagine about the team.

Should Gaborik have dropped the gloves with Carcillo? Should a teammate have stepped in? Was there a lack of honor in it, as John Tortorella said there was?</p> <p>We then bring in Frank D from Pensburgh and fromtherink.com to talk all things Pittsburgh Penguins, mostly surrounding the game from this past weekend.

Are the Flyers even considered a threat to the Penguins anymore?</p><p>Moving on, we peer into the future and try to figure out what the Flyers may do at the trade deadline. Paul Holmgren has said he's looking for a defenseman, so who's available? Should the Flyers even do anything? Is trading for prospects instead of roster players a smarter idea?
