The Flyers as Assets: Part II

As we reach Part II of assigning value to the Flyers assets on the roster, things begin to get much more convoluted and less black and white. Last week I went into great detail breaking down the core pieces of the roster, but now it gets much more difficult. At this point, much of this becomes up for debate because certain teams always covet certain players over others, similar to how the Flyers seemed to have covet Luke Schenn before finally pulling the trigger to acquire him earlier this summer.

Flyers Faithful’s 10 top Flyers prospects
