To illustrate how mediocre they've been they are currently on pace for 89 points which is pitiful. Any other year they'd be sitting in the 9th or 10th spot, but the whole East is mediocre which allows a team that gives a half-assed effort like the Flyers to skate by. If they were in the West they don't even make the playoffs.
I find it just as hard to measure someone else's effort from my couch as I do their desire. This team is on pace for 89 points because it has zero goaltending and had to learn any entirely new system in December. Just when they were starting to get it, they stopped playing for a few weeks and look pretty understandably disjointed.
