Flyers Faithful asked Dave Isaac from Philly Sports Daily, Ryan from Flyers Goal Scored By…, Anthony Mingioni from The Hockey Guys, Center Ice Philly, and Sportsology, and our very own Frick five questions about the first half of the season.

Will an Atlantic Division team win the Stanley Cup this season?

Nina G: I think the Penguins are the only one strong enough to win it if healthy, but since they are not I do not see the Cup coming from the Atlantic in 2012.
