NHL Philadelphia Flyers: Projected Impacts of the Team's New Acquisitions

After a whirlwind offseason that saw the team jettison ten players from its playoff roster, the Flyers barely resemble the team that came within two games of capturing Lord Stanley's Cup just one short year ago.

Gone is team captain and franchise cornerstone Mike Richards. Gone is the team's best pure goal scorer in Jeff Carter. Gone are two-way wingers Kris Versteeg and Ville Leino. Gone are energy players and fan-favorites Dan Carcillo and Darroll Powe. Gone are veteran role players Brian Boucher and Sean O'Donnell.

In their place, the Flyers have added veterans Max Talbot and Andreas Lilja, promising young forwards Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, Wayne Simmonds, and Jakub Voracek, top-tier goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, and future Hall of Fame RW Jaromir Jagr. 

But can all of these acquisitions offset the departures of so many key players? Read on to find out.

 

As always, comments are welcome and appreciated.
