The Flyers and the salary cap

The Flyers and the salary cap

While not ideal, their situation may not be as gloomy as thought The Flyers had one of the best cap situations going into this offseason. They had money to spend, and had plans of re-signing key RFA players and snagging some free agents. The notion, and eventual reality, that Chuck Fletcher and the Flyers were going to spend this offseason was not a surprise to anybody. However, after the addition of Justin Braun, Matt Niskanen, and Kevin Hayes, many fans were left in a state of confusion, bewildered with anger over the state the team was now left in after Fletcher’s shopping spree. The...

Will the Flyers’ new additions on defense actually be markedly better?

Will the Flyers’ new additions on defense actually be markedly better?

GM Chuck Fletcher is banking that a pair of veteran additions, and a coaching staff shakeup will be the remedy for the blue line blues. The Flyers moved fast in remaking their blue line since the end of last season, but will the changes actually make the unit better or are we headed for more of the same this year. In all there aren’t too many changes coming on the back end, but GM Chuck Fletcher did swap out Radko Gudas for Matt Niskanen in a trade with the Capitals, and then acquired Justin Braun for a pair of draft picks just prior to the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. There was also some...

A look around the Metropolitan Division after the opening of free agency

A look around the Metropolitan Division after the opening of free agency

Remember the Flyers made their big move before free agency, and his name is Kevin Hayes. The Flyers were quiet —as expected— on the opening days of free agency, but teams around the Metropolitan Division were not. With the dust settling on the start of NHL free agency, it’s time to take a look at just what the Flyers’ division rivals were up to and how they did in and around July 1. Capitals Out: Andre Burakovsky (Traded to Avalanche for Scott Kosmachuk, and 2020 second and third-round picks) Matt Niskanen (Traded to Flyers for Radko Gudas with 30% of Gudas’ cap hit...

Why this will be a slow free agent frenzy day for the Flyers

Why this will be a slow free agent frenzy day for the Flyers

The answer is pretty simple, although not one we may like. As I’m sure you’ve figured out in the hours leading up to the opening of the NHL’s free agency period, the Philadelphia Flyers are most likely not going to be too involved. With the acquisitions of Kevin Hayes, Justin Braun, and Matt Niskanen before both free agency and the draft even began, the Flyers have addressed a lot of the major needs heading into the 2019-20 season. While we all would have liked to see them get the big names like Jacob Trouba or P.K. Subban, or of course an Artemi Panarin, realistically these things...
