With an 0-3 record to begin the year, there is a fair amount to potentially be worried about. The Flyers have managed only three goals for and eleven goals against in those three games. Both the power play and penalty kill have seen their struggles. Now, with Hartnell’s injury, (and Schenn’s suspension, in the short term), the depth will be tested. What is your biggest concern about the Flyers at the moment?
The Flyers had an abundance of rookie riches last year with the trio of Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, and Matt Read. Heading into 2012-2013 expectations are high for this group as they step into even more prominent roles with the club.
As part of the tentatively agreed to CBA agreement between the NHL and NHLPA each team has two compliance buyouts they can use over the next two summers. Compliance buyouts would not impact the team’s salary cap. I’ve included the obvious candidates as well as, for the sake of being thorough, the other long-term contracts on the roster. *One thing to note, currently, like in the expired CBA, teams cannot buy out injured players. That could throw a wrench in any plans for the Flyers to buy out Chris Pronger. Feel free to explain your reasoning in the comments!
We raised somewhere between $400-$500 (estimated) for Hurricane Sandy victims during Saturday’s fundraiser. Now, we need to donate the money and I would like those involved in this process in any way to have a say in this matter. Please let us know below where you believe we should donate the money. We will keep this poll open until Sunday and then donate the proceeds to the winning charity. Thank you in advance for your time and opinion.
Paul Holmgren has been steering the ship in Philadelphia through six offseasons now — seven if you include the 2006-07 season, when Bobby Clarke admitted he was asleep at the wheel. Which was his best?
Last season was a bumpy ride for the highly-paid Ilya Bryzgalov. Will he suffer the same fate next season or will he regain his top form from March?
Claude Giroux is now a superstar but there’s a long line of talented, young players behind him who have the chance to join his elite rank in upcoming seasons.
