VOORHEES, N.J. – Only nine players in the history of hockey have amassed more than 3,000 penalty minutes in their career.

Flyers coach Craig Berube is one of them.

So, to hear him lament his team’s propensity for taking too many penalties is one of the more interesting dichotomies you’ll find in professional sports.

But Craig Berube the player had one philosophy. Craig Berube the coach has one that’s completely different.

PHILADELPHIA – There’s probably no one in hockey who knows Steve Mason better than former Flyer and current Columbus alternate captain R.J. Umberger.

Best friends and roommates on the road for five seasons in Columbus, Umberger knew every little thing about Mason, and vice versa.

So when Umberger got together for dinner with his old friend last night – the first time the two had seen each other since Mason was traded from Columbus to Philadelphia last April – he was relieved to see him in such good spirits.

PHILADELPHIA – It was a subtle move, but one coach Craig Berube had been thinking about for some time.

Moving Scott Hartnell down from the first line and replacing him with Michael Raffl has been a boon – for all of two games so far.

Raffl, Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek have thrived as a unit in those games, combining for 11 points.

Raffl has had a bit of a breakout, benefitting from playing with top-end talent.

Giroux has been good for awhile now, averaging a point per game in the past 17 contests.

But Voracek is the one that has really made the line tick of late.

CHICAGO – It was a long flight from Dallas to Ottawa, which gave Zac Rinaldo a lot of time to think.

He was coming off a game in Detroit where he didn’t get a lot of ice time followed by a four second cameo in Dallas that was enough to leave his team shorthanded for seven minutes as he was being ejected from the game.

His actions in Dallas – jumping Stars pesky pest Antoine Roussel as both came off the bench for their first shift of the game – was not the smartest of choices by Rinaldo.

As a matter of fact, his coach, Craig Berube, was quite blunt when describing the decision to land a couple of blows to Roussel’s head while he laying on the ice.

“Stupid,” Berube said.

CHICAGO – The Windy City is a special place for Ray Emery.

Not because he won a Stanley Cup here with the Blackhawks last summer, although that was pretty cool.

Not because he had a phenomenal record of 17-1 with a 1.94 goals against average and was a groin injury away from being the go-to guy for the Cup run, even though those numbers were impressive.

Instead, it had meaning long before that.

Chicago is near and dear to Emery and has been since July 27, 2011.

DETROIT – The second half of the morning skate today was a lot like the second half of practice yesterday, which was a lot like the second half of the morning skate in Minnesota…

…and the practice before that… and the morning skate before that… etc.

Welcome to the world of a Craig Berube coached team. Things are pretty cut and dry. The way you practice, the things you practice, the meetings after practice – they’re all the same.

ST. PAUL, Minn. – It was a good day to be a Flyers prospect Monday.

Team Canada announced their final list of camp invitees for the World Junior Championships and two Flyers prospects were on the short list.

Forwards Scott Laughton and Taylor Leier were among 15 forwards invited to the training camp. Team Canada will likely cut two forwards before the tournament starts Dec. 20 in Sweden.

ST. PAUL, Minn. – When Vinny Lecavlier scored the lone goal in the Flyers shootout victory in Nashville the other night, he skated into the zone methodically, almost too slowly, before roofing a shot over Marek Marazec’s glove and into the net.

The assumption was that it was a savvy, veteran move by a savvy, veteran player against a rookie goalie – lulling him to sleep before snapping off a quick wrister.

It was a good story at the time, but now we need to let the facts get in the way of it.

NASHVILLE – It’s not very often that I like to toot my own horn, but I did write this blog one month ago, when the Flyers were 3-7-0, suggesting fans not panic and give up on the team just yet, and that by the time we made it to Nashville they would be 12-11-2 and in the playoff conversation.

Well, they are 11-12-2 and in the playoff conversation (they owe me one, because I definitely didn’t see that loss in Florida coming).

So, with my new found success in long-range prognostication, I figured, let’s give it another roll here and see if the Flyers can’t better their position by the end of the 2013 calendar year.

And I got to be honest, I don’t like what I see.

TAMPA – Since the Flyers signed Michael Raffl to a free agent contract back in May, I’ve been touting him on this blog as a legit prospect who would not only make the team out of camp but have an impact on the season.

Technically, he didn’t make the team out of camp, missing the first five games while in the AHL, nor has he had a real impact yet.

So if you say today that I was wrong, then I must say that I am guilty as charged.

However…

If you are willing to give it more time to see if, in fact, Raffl can still have a decent impact on the team this season, then I will say the verdict is still out on my assessment of him – and it should be.
