Flyers have technically dressed 5 goalies (maybe 6 if Heeter did show up this year), 11 defensemen, and 19 forwards because of injuries. The fact that we are where we are is crazy.
Also, Rangers are only ahead by 2 points with a game in hand. Islanders have 3 points ahead of us and Flyers have a game in hand against them. We may not get 6th overall (where you guys are), but 7th and 8th are definitely in reach.
Wow what an injury prone defense
Hope they get healthy. I don't think the Flyer's will make the playoffs though-and finishing 9th will really make their draft position worse, not that it matters all that much with a young talented team
