Read: Players Who Played For Both The Flyers and Rangers

There have been 69 total players that have played for the Flyers and Rangers in their careers.

Nine players currently in the NHL have played for both teams:

Jaromir Jagr, Blair Betts, Martin Biron, Steve Eminger, Ruslan Fedotenko, Mike Knuble, Ian Laperriere, Vinny Prospal and Jody Shelley.

I would count Nikolai Zherdev as well since no one will want him on their team.

Tony Amonte, Donald Brashear, Alexandre Daigle, Rob Dimaio, Nick Fotiu, Jan Hlavac, Jody Hull, Kim Johnsson, Tim Kerr, Eric Lindros, Craig MacTavish, Vladimir Malakhov, Sandy McCarthy, Petr Nedved, Ulf Samuelsson, Kevin Stevens, P.J Stock, John Vanbiesbrouck, Jay Wells, Todd White and Mike York are players who played for both teams and are possible to play in the game.

I would say that Donald Brashear, Kim Johnsson, Tim Kerr and Lindros are locked in for the Flyers, or would choose the Flyers, especially in Brashear’s case.

Vanbiesbrouck has been around the team lately and Petr Nedved seems like a good bet to play for the Rangers. Craig MacTavish is coaching, but I would think he would pick the Rangers because of his Oiler buddies and winning the Cup with the Rangers. Fotiu is a lock for the Rangers.

Tony Amonte is the really interesting guy in the group. He scored 30 for the Rangers twice but that was 20 years ago. He only played 93 games for the Flyers, but that was within the last ten years. For some reason, while I think he should be a Ranger, I think Amonte would pick the Flyers in the game.

so i guess dalembert holding vucevic to his season average (ave19pts/12rb/52%fg game 20pts/13rb/53%) is getting manhandled?

there were plenty of times he altered vuc's shot.

dalembert was not the reason for the loss.

how about fournier?
are we not allowed to attack the sacred cow of defense, shumpert?

the guy goes for his career high after playing against shumpert who left him open for jumpers & got blown by on drives & committed 5 fouls.

shump is such a great defender but i never see exactly who he shuts down.

he makes big defensive plays, hounds the ball, etc, but who does he shut down?

but then shump also should not be blamed for the loss.

how about jason smith?

all he's good for is hitting those little open jumpers.

every shot he had wed night was one of those open jumpers & to his credit he does not take the shot if it's not open.

he missed way to many easy open little jumpers.

we all like it that amare is scoring but i've yet to see him pass out of the post.

talk about black holes.

Smith is too dumb to learn the triangle. The sooner they trade him the better!

Why there's an analysis of the game the next day rather the night of the game? SMH

Rangers site game was tonight and recap and analysis in one shot...... this use to be a good site

I don't want to put too much blame on Calderon's injury to explain the Knick's woes, but I just don't feel like we have a legitimate point guard out there. I know Fisher has said that in their system they don't need a traditional point  guard. But Larkin and Prigs are just not enough to lead this team--Larkin's too raw and Prigs is limited. Let's hope Calderon will help make this team a bit more relevant. Maybe that's wishful thinking.

Either the camera man has found Shump, or maybe I'm noticing more but his getting after the refs is relentless...He's becoming unglued after each call.

Simply put, JR Smith needs to be off this team. Replaced with a more consistent shooter that understands offensive continuity. Amare too, but at least he's trying.

In reference to the rotation, I want to give DFish the benefit of the doubt. But, when (for example)  he put Wear in (I believe for Melo) at the end of the first half....Wear's man hit a 3 and then Wear committed a foul sending his man to the line...5 points given up in under a minute.

Wear may be a good player in the future, but right now he is not ready for prime time.


So far as JR....Phil said he is looking for "learners";  I assume that JR does not fit into that category. Soon as JR is off the team, the better.


Our only hope is that Calderon makes a difference when he returns That's a lot of pressure for someone who hasn't played this season. I expect a lot of changes in personnel THIS season as we head into January. The team as presently constructed will have a tough time winning against any of the "non-playoff teams" we play.

Serious question: Is this team trying to win games this year or are they more concerned with teaching a system to the 3 or 4 guys who will still be on the roster next year?

@Jon Gelbard tell me what player appears to have a grasp of the triangle? (outside of travis wear and prigs)

@preybird Calderon might help bring a lot of intangibles like leadership, passing  and basketball IQ, and he can shoot from the outside but but but he's a very poor defender.  Factor that in before you say he's the difference between winning and losing.  Prior to the season Phil himself said, "we are going to have to run some team D to hide Jose's weaknesses on D"……If only we could hide the entire teams' weakness's on D?

@tw22 JR had a good look on that shot but he just blew it

@1969JAN12th Hey Wear had a bad couple of minutes but he locked down Lebron in game 2 sooooo I'd say he's ready, he was just cold.   Don't blame the loss on the kid.  SMH

@rico @1969JAN12th No, absolutely not blaming the loss on Wear....and can't even blame the loss on JR. This loss was earned throughout the game against a 2-6 team.

I'm just not seeing DFish's substitute pattern.  But, maybe he is seeing things in a much different light then we as fans. Guess we'll see.

@1969JAN12th @rico Like every other Manager with a so-so roster he's trying out combinations. Wear is one of the only Knicks who seems to have assimilated the offense easily. (why he made the team) 


Remember back when Larry Brown set an NBA record for fielding so many different lineups during his nightmare season?  Larry Brown was not known for scrambling line-ups.  Then Zeke took over and broke Browns record.  Woodson and Mike Dantoni were also criticized for no set lineups.  Are you seeing a pattern here? 


Unless you have players who get the job done, every minute they are on the court, it's musical chairs out there.


What I don't get is why management had to come so hard with a "new system", as opposed to say gradually transition to a new system.  They could run pick and roll and then call for the specific plays in the triangle, ones that that players get, little by little until they could incorporate more.  The idea that the players have to fit "the system" seems kind of egotistical and not pragmatic (as we can see) during the regular season.  Especially since like one poster said here…"they're learning this so the 3 players left on the roster next season will know it"…kinda nuts
