Despite the best efforts of Jakub Voracek, Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, Kimmo Timmonen and Ilya Bryzgalov, things certainly didn’t turn out to be Always Sunny in Philadelphia when it came to the 2013 Flyers. Instead it was more like a game of Chardee Macdennis that lasted for four months and made the Flyers’ faithful run to the liquor cabinet quite often.
Team Name: Philadelphia Flyers
Record: 23-22-3, 4th in Atlantic, No Playoffs
Player of the Season: Giroux led the team with 35 assists and 48 points and 21 points came on the power play. He continued to show that he is the best player from a fantasy perspective on Broad Street.
Breakout of the Season: Voracek roared to career highs in goals (22), assists (24), points (46), shooting percentage (17.1%), power play points (17: 8G, 9A) and game-winning goals (3). He wound up being one of the best right wings to own and should go higher in 2013-2014 than his ADP in the high 90s. Hopefully, he doesn’t crash any more Ferraris either. W...

from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News,
Asking the Flyers to not get in on the action is like asking 95 percent of all hockey cards not to depreciate in value. It’s in their DNA. It’s what they do.
Unfortunately, evidence suggesting constant roster turnover isn’t the ideal way to construct a Stanley Cup-winning product continues to mount. But it looks as if we’re in...

The Flyers will have some decisions to make on defense if and when they get Mark Streit signed to a contract. Specifically, it seems likely that one of either Andrej Meszaros or Braydon Coburn may not be back next season even if the club uses both of its buyouts (likely on Danny Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov) to free up over $10 million of cap space. The club also needs to determine...
Mark Streit, the newest Philadelphia Flyer? (courtesy of nhl.com)
Veteran Swiss defenseman Mark Streit has found a new home in the City of Brotherly Love. On Wednesday, Streit and his rights were traded by the New York Islanders to Philly in exchange for minor league forward Shane Harper and a 4th round draft pick in 2014 as per the Islander’s website.

We knew Streit wasn't going to be an Islander in 2013-14 after he turned down the...
Ever since the Flyers acquired him from the Los Angeles Kings as the centerpiece of the Mike Richards trade, the expectations on Brayden Schenn have been very high. While he has displayed the inconsistency and streakiness that is common of most first-year and second-year pros, he has also provided his fair share of glimpses at the type of player he could become as he reached his...
The Philadelphia Flyers acquired defenseman Mark Streit from the New York Islanders Wednesday for minor-league forward Shane Harper and a fourth-round pick in 2014.
Streit, the Islanders' team captain, has 65 goals and 288 points in 491 regular-season NHL games, and is a sharp, left-handed shot from the blue line that is much-needed as Philadelphia reshapes its roster.

For most, the offseason begins once the Stanley Cup Finals conclude. But after a rare playoff-less season for the Philadelphia Flyers, Paul Holmgren and Ed Snider clearly could not wait even that long.
Only hours before the puck dropped for Game One of the championship series between the Chicago Blackhawks...

* The comparisons of the Flyers' ill-fated acquisition of the rights to Dan Hamhuis in the summer of 2010 to their recent acquisition of the rights to Mark Streit lack context.
The Hamhuis acquisition was a case of the Flyers trying to convince a player who had already stated he intended to pursue unrestricted free agency -- and was reportedly exclusively...

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Giroux's agent, Pat Brisson, did not respond to phone calls, but he must have smiled when Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin signed an eight-year deal Thursday for $76 million. The deal starts in 2014-15 and carries an average cap hit of $9.5 million.
Giroux doesn't yet have Malkin's pedigree - the Penguins' star...
