  • A gem for the Phantoms in the Pronger trade?

    Ryan Dingle*ended up as a footnote to the blockbuster draft-day*trade that brought Chris Pronger to the Flyers. But for the*Phantoms,*Dingle*may end up being*much more than just a throw-in to the deal. He looks like a solid player who should help Adirondack right away.

    Dingle, who came with Pronger from the Anaheim organization in the mega deal, is a 25-year-old AHL-veteran forward.*He scored 11 goals and had seven assists in 70 games*for the Iowa Chops last season.

    Dingle is one of 34 Flyers prospects working out this week at the summer conditioning camp in Voorhees, N.J. James van Riemsdyk, the organization’s No. 1 pick in 2007, and all six of the most recent draft picks were scheduled to attend the camp, which runs from July 7-13.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer caught up with Dingle on Monday. Most interesting quote of the story, which can be read here, is by Pronger, who called Dingle “a little spark plug” who “opened up a lot of eyes” in preaseason scrimmages. Apparently Dingle’s M.O. is as a scrappy, undersized player.

    Thursday, the Flyers’ prospects will be in Stone Harbor, N.J. — my favorite place on the*Jersey shore*– for the team’s “Trial on the Isle.”* Among other things, it includes a mini-triathlon and charity softball game. (Ironically, I’ll be passing through there on vacation next week. But I don’t plan on competing in any triathlons).

    Below is a a*roster of players attending. You can also find it on the Flyers Web site by clicking here.

    He didn't look anything special or impressive at camp yesterday. It's way too early in camp to judge his full spectrum though. He didn't make many mistakes which was a +.
    - Viva la Dink!

    “We were allowed to spend the money, we always tried to win,” Clarke said. “We didn’t do what Pittsburgh did; lose seven years in a row so they could get good. They did it twice, in fact. They went through six or seven different owners. We’ve had one owner.” ~ Bobby Clarke
