The Nolan Patrick situation

The Nolan Patrick situation

Heather Barry / SB Nation No, the Flyers are not going to just let Nolan Patrick walk We’ve got to talk, gang. The off-season is officially upon us, and the Flyers have some housekeeping to do. They’ve got a roster to fill out, a couple of contracts to sign — or not sign — which means that they have some decisions to make. Now, it’s also about that time of year when we have to start talking about RFA contracts, and when (some of us, at least) have to do this weird dance around the idea that “well, even though this player has played in the NHL and the team seems to like them...

Make them go away! Enough with the boring hockey! Anyhoo... *There’s been quite a lot of talk post-playoffs, and rightfully so, about all the ways that the Flyers were let down by their best players.

The Flyers’ bottom six let them down in the playoffs

The Flyers’ bottom six let them down in the playoffs

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via They might not win you a series, but they sure can help get you there. There’s been a lot of talk about how the Flyers’ best forwards weren’t good enough in the playoffs, and how they could have been better. And they certainly could have been, but the team’s top two lines were the only lines getting anything done. Last week, Kurt dug into what happened to the team’s depth, as heading into the playoffs it was considered a team strength. One day later, Flyers General Manager Chuck Fletcher brought up his team’s depth lines when asked about...

NHL Draft 2020, taking a closer look at: Jake Neighbours

Photo by Vaughn Ridley/ The hard-nosed two-way winger is a second round comp. Previous articles: Hendrix Lapierre, Lukas Reichel, Sam Colangelo, Jacob Perreault, Justin Barron, Jeremie Poirier, Anton Lundell, John-Jason Peterka, Dylan Holloway, Ozzy Wiesblatt, Ridly Greig, Zion Nybeck, Braden Schneider, Thomas Bordeleau In my previous draft analysis, when discussing wingers, I’ve favored looking at more prototypical goal-scoring wingers, since I think that is an area of dearth concerning the Flyers. However, today’s player in question fits more in the mould of the young wingers...

3 positive takeaways from the Flyers’ postseason

3 positive takeaways from the Flyers’ postseason

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via It may not feel like it now, but there is reason for optimism. It’s been about a week since the Philadelphia Flyers’ season ended at the hands of the New York Islanders — just writing that was enough to provoke a gag reflex. For the next few months, there will be a lot of talk regarding the changes the Flyers need to make this offseason. And there are a decent amount of them. For one, the Flyers need to do something — anything — to fix their atrocity of a power play. They also need to evaluate whether or not veterans such as Justin Braun or Tyler...
