I'm now reassessing my thoughts on the Organization's outlook on the next season and future... I believed Homer when he said that he didn't really know what this team would be like this season as far as being better or not compared to last season... And I believe that the team wanted to stay in contention but wanted to make a culture change within the ranks and restructure the leadership by bringing more natural leaders and character guys.
But with Schenn possibly going to The A and Couturier staying up (a least 10 games) and Betts being waived and Gus possibly staying... added to all else that has gone down... I am now under the impression that the Flyers are willing to take a step or two back and be a bubble team fighting again for the playoffs as they gear up for the long haul as hopefully a perennial Cup contender with a new young core group supported by veterans.
Just a feeling... I expect an exciting team and season, but don't expect a long Cup quest this season... I hope I'm proven wrong and the team gels faster than I think.
