All in all, the Philadelphia Flyers' roster for the upcoming 2014-15 season is awfully similar to last year's squad.
Nine of the team's top 10 point producers from a season ago are set to return, while Steve Mason and Ray Emery are both back between the pipes providing Philadelphia with a stability in goal the Orange and Black haven't enjoyed in years.
Fan favorite Scott Hartnell was dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets for former Flyer R.J. Umberger, and Nick Schultz was inked as a depth defenseman on Philly's back end. Otherwise, the roster remains largely the same as a year ago.
But that's not such a bad thing.
After failing to qualify for the postseason following the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, the Flyers responded last year with 42 wins and 94 points en route to a sixth-place finish in the Eastern Conference. What's more, Philadelphia finished third in the newly formed Metropolitan Division and posted a 15-11-4 mark against division opponents.
But while the Flyers remain largely intact heading into the upcoming season, there's been considerable change throughout the rest of the Metropolitan Division this summer. Here's how Philadelphia stacks up against its division opponents heading into the 2014-15 campaign.
