The Philadelphia Flyers are a young, talented team with a lot of potential. If GM Paul Holmgren plays his cards right, he could be looking at the start of a dynasty in Philadelphia.
Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier, Brayden Schenn, Jake Voracek, Matt Read, Wayne Simmonds and James van Riemsdyk are all young, talented forwards who form the best young core in the NHL. Veteran forwards Max Talbot, Danny Briere, Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell are productive leaders who balance out the young guys.
Kimmo Timonen, Andrej Meszaros, Nicklas Grossmann and Erik Gustafsson form a solid defensive corps. In goal, Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky form a pretty solid tandem. Contracts aside, they are talented players who get criticized too much because they play in Philadelphia.
There is a lot for Flyers fans to be excited about. But with all that being said, a few things will need to happen this offseason and next season for the Flyers to return to the Stanley Cup.
