25 Under 25, No. 13: Allison hopes to stay healthy, and return to sophomore season pace

Photo by Andy Lewis/Icon Sportswire via The 21 year old appears to be finally healthy, and hopes to return to his point per game form. In the 2017-18 season, Wade Allison was one of the fastest-rising prospects in the Flyers system. He started his season with 30 points in 22 games, and looked to be a strong candidate to win or at the very least be in contention for the Hobey Baker Trophy. Then, Allison went down with a torn ACL, ending his season. Last year, Allison spent much of his campaign attempting to recover from that injury, and simply wasn’t at full strength. In an article...

The gang brings back the hot takes by revealing the hills we’d die on when it comes to sports fandom before diving into the next batch of guys that made it on to our 25 Under 25, which, for obvious reasons, leads to a discussion about who will end up in that vacant spot on the third line. NAK? Vorobyev? ...Tyler Pitlick?? It also felt like a good time to address the problem the Flyers have with PR and try to figure out how this organization becomes relevant again. To round out the show, the gang turns to rumors...

25 Under 25, No. 14: Don’t forget Aube-Kubel

Casey Liberatore / SB Nation He may be flying under the radar in the Flyers’ forward prospect pool, but he’s taking serious steps towards NHL readiness. Would you look at that! We’re still out here talking about Phantoms on the Top 25 Under 25 list. Yesterday it was Mikhail Vorobyev, and today we’re moving on up in the lineup to Nicolas Aube-Kubel! He’s just completed his third season with the Phantoms, and while in some ways this was a messy one for him, it still may be that he’s taken his necessary steps forward, and knocking on the door for a full time NHL job. Let’s...

Previous Chapters Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Last week on “Choose your own adventure…” “Though, despite this, the Flyers’ chances at a cup run are not dead.

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via After two short stints in the NHL last season, what’s next for the center? Following an impressive debut season in North America, and a strong showing in camp, Mikhail Vorobyev found himself on the Philadelphia Flyers’ opening day roster this past season. However he wouldn’t stay for long, as after appearing in only seven games he found himself back in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Three months later he’d return to the NHL once more, but face the same fate just three weeks following the call-up. Now, the Russian center will have to...

25 Under 25, No. 16: Brink, offensive dynamo and soul skater

Photo by Kevin Light/ Diminutive winger has loads of offensive skill, but will skating hold him back from being a second-round steal? While fans were clamoring for the Flyers to take in impact scoring forward — and one in particular— with their first-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, the team instead opted to take a high-end defenseman with their pick and find a forward later on. GM Chuck Fletcher would do just that, trading back into the second round at No. 34 overall to snag Bobby Brink of the Sioux City Musketeers and the USHL. Pegged by many as a potential first-round...

On Kevin Hayes and the mindset of Waning Flyers Exceptionalism

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports The Flyers had to pay a free agent a lot of money, which is something that apparently no team has ever done before, so now we have to talk about what exactly the Flyers are. It’s August, we’re cranky, the Flyers haven’t won a playoff series in seven years, and there’s a new story that’s given us as a fanbase reason to feel insecure about ourselves, so let’s just buckle up and get right down to some talking. The story in question is brought to us by current TSN Senior Hockey Reporter and former Daily News Flyers beat writer Frank Seravalli, who...
