    3 points back. Dream is still alive.
    the dream to get thrashed by Tampa in the 1st round.  making the playoffs is usually good but this has no chance against Tampa. probably a 4 game sweep.  hope this management team doesn't get fooled by this team playing well at the end of the year. this seems to happen every year with this franchise then they think they are closer than they really are.
    true plus next game is against the Caps. :worried:
    Going to that ...hoping to see a good game.

    I dont think Fletcher is fooled. But yes, I'd much rather see 4 or 5 games of playoff hockey and they usually play TB tough. Both teams have identical records since the middle of January.
    Watching some playoff games would be much more enjoyable than another mid round draft pick. They have enough good prospects developing already.

    And so you see, I have come to doubt

    not a good way to end the season. Some positives, but mostly negatives this year :neutral:

    Yep. Flyers are almost completely off the Philly sports landscape. They have become irrelevant since this "rebuild/retool"
    Comcast knows this from declining revenue and irate season ticket holders combined with the audacity to raise ticket prices next season.
    Many long tome season ticket holders from the 70's and 80s cant afford tickets that have been in their households for decades.
    Flyers have tons of prospect/upcoming players but they need players now that are gonna take them to the next step. Time to use some of these assets to help the youth.
    They just threw huge money at a head coach. I expect to see more vet pieces added this summer.
    They need something to get some media attention back on to them

    They will never get as much media attention than what a mascot did for them. And it's not even close.

    yes because what this team needs is more middling veterans.  Sign a goal scorer but Farabee and Frost need to be in the lineup next year.

    and Kate Smith statue covered up because they uncovered racist lyrics from like 75 years ago.

    you can't hold people from almost a century ago to the standards of today. standards change and grow with each generation. i'm sure in 50 years people then will wonder what we are thinking today (they will probably question most rap lyrics)

    That's really interesting about the rap lyrics part, never thought of that and it's a good point.  It's unfair of me to speak to the Flyers' tradition part, but I live in Charlottesville, VA, and I hear the same "you can't judge them" argument about Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee, two guys I will definitely judge.  As an outsider I was shocked by that article; not trying to say that is right or wrong, just that I understand if the organization would want to distance themselves from her.

    Who said anything about acquiring middling veterans? Strange interpretation there. They absolutely need a top Vet D-man.
