2011-2012 NHL Season Preview: Philadelphia Flyers
Our 2011-2012 NHL season preview takes us to the home of the Cheesesteak sandwich, the Liberty Bell and of course, the Philadelphia Flyers. The last half decade has been an exciting one for hockey fans in Philly, but frustrating at the same time. The Flyers have been bridesmaids but never brides. Twice they have reached the semi finals and even made a trip to the Stanley Cup final, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be. A ton of off season changes were made by general manager Paul Holmgren, most notably the departures of Flyers captain Mike Richards (to the LA Kings) and scorer Jeff Carter (Columbus Blue Jackets). But don’t fret Flyers fans because upper management is NOT calling this a “rebuild” by any means. In fact, they are calling it a vote of confidence for young gun forward Claude Giroux who finally broke out of his shell last season. First ballot hall-of-famer Chris Pronger still mans the blue line and perhaps the biggest question for Philadelphia Flyers hockey fans has been answered in goal with the signing of Ilya Bryzgalov. Add in the mix Wayne Simmonds and a returning to the league Jaromir Jagr and the Flyers have, on paper, a very compelling argument at why they will go the distance this season. We really do love the heart that the team from the city of brotherly love brings to the ice game in and game out and if they can stay healthy they will be in the mix when its all said and done in June. Will this be the season that the perennial runners up to the cup finally get to sip Lord Stanley’s victory champagne? It would make for great hockey that’s for sure!
