They were one of the more active teams during last year's offseason and were favored to represent the East in the Stanley Cup Finals for the better part of the season.
Their series against New Jersey was disappointing and will likely see the team aggressively making deals again in the offseason.
With five players about to become free agents, it would open up some cap space for the Flyers to chase some of the bigger names in the NHL.
Let's not forget the trades they made last summer that included sending Jeff Carter to Columbus and Mike Richards to LA, albeit the Flyers are now probably kicking themselves. The Flyers traded them to make cap space for their free agent signings last summer.
Philly needs to make a few moves this offseason, as their fan base is becoming more and more impatient as the years go by without a Cup.
Expect them to be aggressive when chasing the free agents they want. That alone could lead us to see more moves like the ones made by the Flyers last summer, making deals for players like Suter more plausible.
If Suter is thinking that Philly is a good place for him to play, expect Philly to jump at the chance to sign him. The odds for this deal happening are high, with a 70-75 percent chance of it happening.
