Every NHL team has its share of overachievers and underachievers, and the Philadelphia Flyers are no exception. Unfortunately, last season they had more of the latter, which contributed to a disappointing campaign.
The most successful NHL teams have role players who step up and play above their expectations, which can help a struggling team get out of a slump or elevate a good team to the top of the league.
If the Flyers want to bounce back in the 2013-14 season, they will need some unheralded players to contribute. The Flyers also need to minimize the amount of players who disappoint, as they can bring a team down with them.
Inevitably, there will be both over and underachievers in Philadelphia, and this slideshow will walk you through what to expect next season.
