Flyers need a hit with No. 5 pick

A miserable season resulted in the Philadelphia Flyers ending up with the fourth-worst record in the National Hockey League and the fifth overall pick in the 2022 Entry Draft. If you’re an optimist, and let’s face it that’s why you’re still here, it could have been worse as the Flyers could have dropped to sixth in the draft. But it certainly could have been better as the Flyers not only didn’t cash in on a 9.5-percent chance of finishing first, they didn’t luck into the second overall pick this year, either. Although some Nolan Patrick haters might say the Flyers dodged a bullet by not getting the second pick.

Florida’s power play resembles Flyers’; Claude Giroux, Panthers fall

Claude Giroux, the former Philadelphia Flyers captain, has seen this before. A power play that is beyond awful; a weak penalty kill that spelled the difference. If Giroux didn’t know better, he probably felt he was still in Philadelphia and not the Sunshine State. Special teams killed Florida in...

The most important transaction the Philadelphia Flyers might have this season will have nothing to do with a player, but who will lead them from behind the bench.

Flyers to meet with Barry Trotz; can they woo him away from Winnipeg?

The Philadelphia Flyers are set to meet with Barry Trotz, who has become a prime candidate to be their seventh coach in the last nine seasons. Trotz is expected to meet with the Flyers’ management Friday. He interviewed with Winnipeg earlier this week, and the fact he didn’t sign with the Jets is a bit surprising.

Breaking down Wild’s goaltending options for next season

Now that the Minnesota Wild are eliminated from the playoffs, there is one position that, going forward, is still a giant question mark. GM Bill Guerin acquired Marc-Andre Fleury at the trade deadline to secure some goaltending stability down the stretch and into the post-season, but at the same time, the one goalie that they didn’t trade away, veteran Cam Talbot, exceeded any previous expectations and performances from the first half of his season. This created a weird mix of talents that caused some ruffling of feathers once Fleury got the starting role for all but the final playoff game the Wild had.
