With the new year rapidly approaching, it's always good to savor the remaining minutes of this year while thinking about building on success next year.
For the Philadelphia Flyers this is no different.
After overturning a significant portion of their roster last summer, which came under heavy scrutiny, this team has dressed 10 different rookies and at times found themselves atop the Eastern Conference.
Despite being in first place at times, this team still has questions surrounding it and areas it can improve in.
The absence of a Chris Pronger from your lineup will do that to you.
However in any struggle there are casualties. The Flyers would like to have avoided that casualty, but such is a hockey season.
Fortunately for Paul Holmgren, there is a plethora of young talent he can use in a trade to remedy that casualty and perhaps turn this exciting team into a bona fide Stanley Cup contender.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present to you five new year's resolutions for the Orange and Black.
