The cases for and against Morgan Frost being a Philadelphia Flyer for 2019-20

Could the Sault St. Marie Greyhound make the big club? This offseason, it’s evident that the Flyers have a lot of work to do. They’ll need to re-sign key RFA players, bolster their roster by adding via free agency or trade, and subtract talent that have become more burdensome than helpful. However, there are a some high profile youngsters (if I can call them that, most of them are not much younger than me) that are looking to make a push forward and claim a spot come opening day.

So far, eight teams have been eliminated and we have one takeaway from each team’s first-round failure that impacts the Flyers going forward as GM Chuck Fletcher and new coach Alain Vigneault look to put an end to the franchise’s lengthly Stanley Cup drought.

BSH Radio #206: It’s almost summer, so let’s talk free agency targets

In which the gang does a bit of shouting about Nazem Kadri. What the hell are we going to talk about this week?

As much as we love Erik Karlsson, will he be worth the investment? Plus, we discuss the controversial ending to the San Jose/Vegas game seven. The content just keeps on rolling even while our good hockey boys are idle.

Thursday Morning Fly By: Time to make your picks

Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Flyers news and notes… *Round two baby! Who ya got? *So that news we got about Jay O’Brien yesterday wasn’t great as far as expectations for the kid go, but it is really easy to lose perspective when evaluating the ‘career’ of a literal teenager.
