I Last nights game should be the “base” game for this season.
Ahead 3-2, 1:00 to go in the 3rd period and the Flyers were awarded a 2 minute power play after much discussion (at one point apparently it was going to be a 5 minute major). Somehow, the Flyers managed to lose 4-3 (I watched it, but am still confused how a team could lose under these circumstances).
If they aren’t tanking I really have no idea how this could possibly be fixed in less than 5 years. This really is the worst Flyers Team I have ever seen. This looks like the 2013 Phillies, old players that clearly must be moved and young players that simply can’t play.
In the obvious rebuild coming (actually, it is a build, there is no re- to it) I hope we dedicate immense resources in scouting and drafting, and absolutely none in NHL level coaching, coaching the guys that are going to be on this team for the next couple years is probably a waste of time . Some of them will move on to other teams as role players, but none of them will still be here when this team is competitive again.
Playoffs in 2028? Later?
