In Tuesday’s edition of Bailey’s Daily, we’ll be talking the latest Philadelphia Flyers news, stories, highlights, and more from the top of the week.

Flyers news

  • The big news in Philly and around the league is that the Philadelphia Flyers traded Cutter Gauthier for Jamie Drysdale and a 2025 second-round pick. [Jamie Drysdale trade]
  • However, the reasoning behind the move was the bigger bombshell. Flyers GM Danny Briere laid it all out there to the media on Monday night, effectively throwing Gauthier under the bus for his unprofessional antics. [Cutter Gauthier]
  • In the midst of all of that, the Flyers were playing a hockey game! However, it was another dismal offensive performance that culminated in one goal – on the power play – in 60 minutes in the 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. [Flyers game]
  • And in case you missed it, Travis Konecny is scoring short-handed goals at a rate that hasn’t been seen in the NHL in over three decades. [Travis Konecny]

NHL News from National Hockey Now

  • If this Cutter Gauthier saga couldn’t get any crazier, the Montreal Canadiens had the opportunity to trade with the Flyers to get him and declined. They opted to draft David Reinbacher with their draft pick instead. [Montreal Canadiens]
  • With the addition of Drysdale, the Flyers now have eight (!) defensemen on their roster. The New Jersey Devils might not be without Jonas Siegenthaler for that long, but they still need some help in the interim. Would the Flyers be willing to dance? [New Jersey Devils]
  • Buffalo Sabres, Pittsburgh Penguins. Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers. Can the city-mates take lessons from each other and apply them to their upcoming games against each other? [Buffalo Sabres]
  • Alexandar Georgiev is working with the Colorado Avalanche to help control his temper on the ice, and head coach Jared Bednar had some high praise for young defenseman Sam Malinski. Bednar also offered his thoughts on the Avalanche and Boston Bruins taking simultaneous Too Many Men penalties in their game. [Colorado Avalanche]
  • Closer to the equator, Florida Panthers captain Sasha Barkov was upset about having to wear a full shield on Saturday. It didn’t matter on the ice; he went and put up four assists in an 8-4 victory. [Florida Panthers]
