A New Hockey Pen

June 23, 2008

It looks like Sam Carchidi, who for many years has been covering high school sports for the Philadelphia Inquirer, will be the new Flyers beat writer. Sam’s a solid professional, but his passion has been high school sports for quite a while. I sure hope he can find the same joy in covering the game so many Philadelphians love above all others.

Flyers fans are demanding consumers. I’m a little worried there’ll be a rude welcome for the new guy on the block. But I’m looking forward to seeing what Sam does with this.

Just met a friend who’s in a position to know and Tim Panaccio of the Philadelphia Inquirer is being moved off of the hockey beat to cover the Eagles. Yes, all Eagles all the time.

So after a season of excitement for the Philadelphia Flyers and a postseason that leaves Flyers fans hungry for information on what’s next, the Inky plans to leave Flyers fans hanging. Who’ll be following the signings? The draft? This key offseason? As of yet, no one’s saying.

Bad move, Inky.
