If you watched the Flyers' win over the Penguins Sunday, it looked like a lot of fun. It meant something, even though it didn't change Philly's fate. There are many problems to address with the roster, but the core gives them something to work with.
These are probably the last days of Craig Berube's tenure as head coach. The owner wants a winner and if they keep going down the path they've been on the last five years, they'll only get further away from a title. The Flyers need to be smart this offseason and not spend just to spend.
Not long ago the Flyers were within striking distance of the playoffs. After losing eight of nine, that doesn't seem as recent as it actually was.
It's been a rough season in Philadelphia and it's only gotten worse. The Flyers have lost five of their last six games, effectively knocking them out of any sort of postseason race.
Flyers management appears resigned to the fate of this team not making the playoffs and that's probably a good bet. The big question facing GM Ron Hextall is what is he going to do to fix this? There's a great core of forwards here to build around.
Ron Hextall didn't necessarily wave the white flag on the season, but he kind of did, and he probably was right to do so. He got great value out of both Braydon Coburn and Kimmo Timonen that sets him up well for the draft. He also got cheap D in Radko Gudas.
The Flyers are somehow alive despite their top goaltender being hurt and their top two goal scorers not scoring nearly as much as they have been. Wins over Nashville and Washington could be a great springboard.
The Flyers could get a big boost with the expected return of Kimmo Timonen soon. Unfortunately it's probably too late for them to make it count. The Flyers have just one regulation loss in their last 10 games. If the Bruins continue to sputter, there's still a slim chance.
Steve Mason's strange, and possibly serious injury is yet another mishap in a year of many for the Flyers. They're squandering some great offensive performances and the year could get worse yet without the No. 1 between the pipes.
The Flyers are really trending up after rattling off four straight wins. They're 6-4-0 over their last 10 and appear poised to overtake Florida for ninth in the East. Unfortunately, the playoffs still look doubtful as Philly is nine points out.
Preseason Power Rankings
The Flyers remain a difficult team to get a read on. Clearly, they're having trouble closing out games and starting goalie Steve Mason has allowed seven goals through two starts.
