There will be plenty of storylines heading into this season for the Flyers after one of the most active offseasons in recent history.
After the team acquired the rights to goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, they knew that they needed to shed some cap space in able to get the Russian under contract.
So, just one day before the draft, the Flyers said goodbye to two of the team's leaders in Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. Carter was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets for the two draft picks, including Columbus' No.1 pick, as well as young winger Jakub Voracek.
Richards was traded to Los Angeles in exchange for Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn, one of the top prospects in the Kings system.
The Flyers were not done yet as they were able to add two talented veterans in Jaromir Jagr and Maxim Talbot, both having ties with the rival Pittsburgh Penguins.
The team that starts the season October 6th will be one completely different from the one that left Boston after the team was swept by the Bruins, but the Flyers are still one of the top-ranked teams in the NHL.
