Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren isn't a psychic, but he likes the way negotiations have gone thus far with Russian goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. On a conference call on Monday afternoon, Holmgran said he would like to have a deal done with Bryzgalov by the start of the NHL entry draft that is set to start Friday. But, he added, that wasn't a completely neccessary goal. Talks between the sides will continue Tuesday, Holmgren said. As for the growing league-wide opinion that the Flyers will have to trade veterans to get under the salary cap, Holmgren was resistent.

Milan Kraft scored two goals and added an assist as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins defeated the Phantoms last night, 4-2, in the American Hockey League. Kraft, Pittsburgh's first-round pick in the 1998 NHL entry draft, was playing in his second game with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after being sent down by the Penguins on Friday. Both of his goals came on assists by his linemates, Eric Meloche and Martin Sonnenberg. The Phantoms closed to within 3-2 after their coach, John Stevens, successfully challenged the legality of the stick of Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi, citing excessive curvature.

All the moves the Flyers have made during a dizzying offseason probably won't mean much if future Hall of Famer Chris Pronger doesn't return to form. It's going to take a while for that to happen. In an interview Wednesday on Canada's TSN radio, Pronger said he did not know if he would be ready for the start of training camp on Sept. 16. Pronger is recovering from back surgery, and he is limited to walking on a treadmill and light bike riding. The 36-year-old defenseman said he was at least three weeks away from training hard, adding that his doctor wanted his back to "scar up and then fully heal" before he did any strenuous workouts.

SOMETIMES, it looks like an old replay. A big body with long, raptor-like arms picks up a loose puck in the neutral zone and swoops down one side of the ice as opposing defensemen scramble to protect their net as prey defends its eggs. Sound familiar? Look familiar? "He's turned into a very fun player to watch," Keith Primeau said yesterday. He, of course, is James van Riemsdyk, the Flyers' 6-3 left winger who, after two seasons of occasional flashes, tortured and trashed Buffalo's defensive strategy in the first-round series by, in the word of Keith Jones, "bulling" his way through the neutral zone and into the opponent's zone the way Primeau once did. Van Riemsdyk scored four goals in the seven-game series and created havoc and uncertainty nearly every time he jumped over the boards, using his speed and reach to create countless scoring opportunities.

LOS ANGELES - Glued to the NHL Network at his father's home in Cincinnati, Jimmy Mullin noticed a missed call on his cell phone. His family advisor had given him a ring to let him know that the Flyers would be picking him, a lifelong Flyers fan and Delaware County native, with the 119th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. But the Flyers never got that chance. Under new general manager Steve Yzerman, the Tampa Bay Lightning swooped in and grabbed Mullin at No. 118. "I never really expected to go that high, I had not even thought about it," Mullin said.
