To start a new bit I’ll try to do once a week here on the blog, I present to you “Down on the Pharm”. In these posts, I’ll post a tidbit of what’s going on in the Adirondacks with the Flyers’ AHL affiliate, the Phantoms. The Phantoms have a fantastic beat writer at the Glens-Falls Post Star by the name of Tim McManus that I recommend you all follow on twitter: @PSPhantoms.
Pat Maroon's time in the Flyers organization is done
This week, McManus broke the news to the hockey world as to the dismissal of the once promising forward Pat Maroon. Since that time, the Flyers organization has signed Denis Hamel, a veteran of professional hockey to replace Maroon on the Phantoms. This week, McManus sat down with Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren and the two discussed the recent movements in the Adirondacks, and how those moves may impact the Flyers moving forward.
I encourage you to check out McManus’s work at the Post-Star, and read the transcript of his chat with Homer here: FLYERS G.M. HOLMGREN ON MAROON, HAMEL, GILBERT, ALLENTOWN, AND MORE
