The Philadelphia Flyers dramatically changed the look of their team in the 2011 offseason. With the Flyers preparing for free agency and roster moves in 2012, we are left wondering if how General Manager Paul Holmgren will alter the team this summer.
The Flyers face free agency questions about some key players and valuable prospects, and trade rumors that date back months and still haven’t died.
One thing is (almost) certain, this year’s offseason drama will pale in comparison to last year’s. Rather than reacting to dramatic trades and surprising signings, the Flyers media will be focused more on speculation.
What happens to Chris Pronger? Who gets the captaincy in 2012-13? Will Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier experience sophomore slumps?
Nonetheless, the team will be losing players who have played significant roles with the team.
These are five players who likely will not don the orange and black in 2012-13.
