IN AN attempt to project this season's offensive output, the Flyers' brass needed to rely on a handful of players continuing to exceed expectations in order to increase last season's 264 goals. Matt Read, Jake Voracek, Max Talbot and Wayne Simmonds all posted career highs in their first season with the Flyers. Not all of them have pulled their weight this season, which partially explains the Flyers' 25th-ranked offense (2.33 goals per-game) after finishing third last season.

Pens miss Staal No one player can replace Jordan Staal, so the Penguins will try to fill in by committee. Those were the Penguins' marching orders Saturday after it was learned that Staal will be out indefinitely following foot surgery to repair a sliced tendon. "Matchup-wise it is a little bit different than what [I'd want]," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. "Jordan was a guy that we'd put, on most occasions, against their best line or best centerman. " With Staal out, Bylsma said the Penguins will have to lean on Matt Cooke, Max Talbot, Craig Adams, and Pascal Dupuis.

The Flyers will apparently have to restructure the five-year, $9 million contract they gave to free-agent forward Max Talbot on Friday. According to TSN, the Flyers violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement by reducing Talbot's salary by more than 50 percent between the third and fourth years - from $2.25 million to $1 million. Barry Hanrahan, the Flyers' assistant general manager, downplayed the matter and said no fine was forthcoming. "We haven't heard from the league," he said in a text message on Monday.

The Detroit Red Wings skated into Pittsburgh for this very game last year, outplayed the Penguins in their building and, in the final indignity, paraded with the Stanley Cup on the same ice where Mario Lemieux once played.

For Flyers forward Max Talbot, the last few months have been eventful: He learned his fiancée will deliver their first child in February, and his left leg has completely healed after it was broken in a collision with Washington's Mike Green last March 31. "All is good," said Talbot, sporting a new-look, short haircut. Talbot is one of the Flyers veterans who will make the trip for the team's first exhibition game, at 6 p.m. Sunday against the Maple Leafs in London, Ontario. The Flyers will then play in a split-squad game Monday in Toronto, while the other members of the team will meet Washington at the Wells Fargo Center on the same night.

The Flyers' Craig Berube and Buffalo's Ted Nolan became the initial coaches of North American Indian ancestry to face each other in NHL history when their teams met Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center. 'It's huge," Nolan said earlier in the day. "I was pretty happy when I heard Craig Berube was the head coach here. It's really big in First Nation Territory back home in Canada. Word spreads quickly ... I'm sure there's going to be an extra crowd of people watching this game and it's good for the next generation of young kids to see that.

The Flyers will have six days between games - they don't play again until Thursday against the visiting New York Rangers - and that will give coach Craig Berube some extra time to implement his system and work on the team's conditioning. Berube, who replaced Peter Laviolette on Oct. 7, has had to use a cram course during the last 10 days. "I think it's important, with what's happened, to get some practice time and some time together as a team - on and off the ice," Berube said before Thursday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Colorado forwards Danny Briere and Max Talbot will return to the Wells Fargo Center to face their former Flyers teammates on Saturday night. Briere, 37, is especially ecstatic to return because he finally gets a chance to be with his three boys, ages 13, 15 and 16. Briere has joint custody, and the boys are being cared for by a nanny in his Haddonfield home. "The longest part of the season is from the beginning of camp to this first trip to Philly," said Briere, who has three points in 10 games but has been a healthy scratch for the last five games.

The Flyers re-signed winger Jason Akeson on Wednesday and traded winger Tye McGinn to San Jose. They also added a pair of unrestricted free agents - defenseman Nick Schultz and winger Andrew Gordon - who figure to be spare parts next season.

Stortini, 28, led the AHL with 299 penalty minutes last season. Yes, it was a busy day for new general manager Ron Hextall.

DRENCHED IN sweat, Steve Downie sat in his stall inside the Flyers' empty locker room in St. Louis on Tuesday morning - just staring off into the distance. He had just gone through a grueling pregame skate routine - reserved for the Flyers' scratches - with assistant coach Ian Laperriere, Hal Gill and Steve Mason, and he was exhausted. Yet, he didn't hustle to get his equipment off to get back to the team hotel for lunch. He sat there in all his equipment. Something just didn't look right.

DENVER - Steve Downie and Max Talbot, forwards who were traded for each other on Halloween, had different perspectives when they faced their former teams on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. Downie, a winger who returned to the Flyers' third line on Thursday, downplayed his return to Denver. He played across three seasons with Colorado but got into only 33 games. "Injuries," Downie said before the game, when asked to characterize his tenure with the Avalanche. "It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. I never really got to show what I could do, but at the same time, it's over with.

DENVER - When the Flyers acquired former first-round pick Steve Downie back from the Avalanche for Max Talbot on Halloween, many around the hockey community threw up their hands in question. Colorado was 10-1-0 at the time. Why did the Avalanche believe that was the time to trade a player skating on its first line for a player best suited for the penalty kill? Soon after, multiple reports surfaced saying that Avalanche brass made the decision to move Downie after a questionable incident in training camp.

Sporting a massive shiner under his left eye from his fight with Washington's Aaron Volpatti on Friday, Flyers winger Steve Downie said he was making progress and would return to the lineup soon. Downie suffered a concussion in that 7-0 loss and has been experiencing some sinus problems from the fight. He did not play Thursday night against New Jersey, but Saturday afternoon's game against Edmonton is a possibility. Officially, he is listed as day-to-day. "I made a mistake in the fight and I paid for it," Downie said after a practice session Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center.
