Here is what I've learned so far in this year Play-offs:

1. This is "The Year of the Coach"- only well coached teams advanced to conference finals.

2. This is "The year of the Forecheck"- it seems that every team has employed this style of play.

3. If forecheck fails successful teams utilize tight team defence

4. And if that fails they rely on excellent goalkeeping.

The way I see it, Flyers were not top notch in any of these things this season. I understand that our D corps were banged up and playing hurt (and no one can be good at their job when hurt), but there were issues with tactic, ice time managment, etc.

To summarize, Flyers system needs to be adjusted at the top and needs better execution by the personnel, especially, in the categories of team defence and goal tending.
