I think the current state of the flyers defenseman and goalkeepers will keep any system to work for them. They need to improve the back end in order to deal with the forechecking pressure from teams like the devils.

I don't think the offense is a huge problem but they seem to be trying to be too cute though the neutral zone. The flyers are a team that's most successful when they dump the puck in and get a forechecking cycle going creating havoc in front of the net and rolling all four lines. Especially with the stricter interference calls on dump ins it's a little less challenging to get to the puck first.

Special teams have been pretty bad too though, maybe it's time to ditch the umbrella on PP and as for penalty kill go back to the aggressive high pressure pk like in the late 2000s
