Oh come on this is ridiculous. The Flyers made it being an 8th seed. They made it to the Cup, so that defintely means they are contending. Just like every other team that tries to make the playoffs, if they get in they are contenders for it. There's no way you can say that the teams in the playoffs are not contender.

Now what you might want to say is that they aren't strong contenders, but they still are contenders no matter how you put it
