What has this to do with this Flyers team?
The Flyers missed the playoffs last season and lost to the Devils in the previous playoffs.

2011 was three playoffs ago.

My point was that this team is completely different. The young players the Flyers have aren't as good as everyone thought they'd be to this point. The players bear the responsibility for their on-ice performance, but management is responsible for choosing to jettison vets over the past few off-seasons in favour of younger players.

The Flyers were successful after all the changes after the 2011/12 season.
Yes, missing the playoffs for only the second time in 20 seasons is a great success.

Actually they did.
The group from two years ago embarrassed the Penguins before being completely outmatched by the Devils in the second round.

In the regular season, only the Penguins won more when trailing first. The Flyers were a team that thought they couldn't lose. This team plays like they think they can't win.

I deride your truth handling abilities
