The Outlook For The 2014-15 Philadelphia Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, They will have to huff and puff to make the playoffs, buying some time for their promising defensemen to gain some minor-league seasoning before likely being ready in two years - or perhaps in the second half of 2014-15.

Rick Tocchet, now an assistant with the Penguins, turned Downie into a 20-goal in Tampa, and probably turned his career around. Risk: Downie is known to take terrible penalties, probably can get out of control. Reward: If deployed in the right situation...
