  • Jones talks adjusting to new role running Flyers in Q&A with

    Keith Jones can think of just one time that he has been surprised since taking over as the Philadelphia Flyers president of hockey operations on May 11. "It had been a long time since I had been in the Skate Zone and I couldn't figure out how to get to my office," Jones said, laughing. The Skate Zone is the former name for the Flyers Training Center, their practice facility and home base for the hockey operations department in Voorhees Township, New Jersey. Jones, a broadcaster based in Philadelphia before taking on his first job in management nearly seven months ago, said he didn't go to Flyers practices too often because, "I never felt like it was that important."

    History Indicates that the Flyers are a Playoff Team, but Danny Briere Still isn't Buying

    Through 21 games, the Flyers are a semi-surprising 11-9-1, and with 21 points, sit in second place in a mostly mediocre Metropolitan Division. It's a weird spot for the Flyers to be in, because, as we saw on Friday against the first-place Rangers, the team is far from good enough to compete with the best team in the Division – assuming a playoff series against them – but so far have proven to be a challenge to pretty much everyone else.
