Sidney Crosby, Marc-Andre Fleury and company will have to wait until December to take on a vastly different Flyers team. Gone are team captain Mike Richards, top goal scorer Jeff Carter and talented forward Ville Leino. Arriving in Philadelphia are former Penguins Maxime Talbot and Jaromir Jagr.
While most Penguins fans knew Talbot would no longer make his home at Consol Energy Center, they were shocked and even somewhat angered that he chose to join the Flyers. However, they believed Jagr would be coming to Pittsburgh, and the hate that Pens fans now feel for arguably the second greatest player in franchise history is through the roof.
How will these two former Penguins, both who were largely loved during their time in black and gold, shape this rivalry as we look ahead to October?
Let's take a look.
Whether you are reading this as a Penguins fan or a Flyers fan, I welcome your thoughts on how the season series will turn out next year.
