The Flyers are generating opportunities. They're just missing terribly.
It has been pretty obvious at times... EN missed must be around 8 now (like point blank open nets with the goalie in the other side.) and there have been a silly amount of pings, and shots from the slot going into the glass.
If their team shooting percentage was around average like last year (8.8-9.5%, 10-20th in NHL) they would have an extra 13-15 goals this year. (388 shots, so 35-37 goals instead of 22.)
So an extra goal a game takes them to ~2.6GPG and ~-2 GD. With those numbers it would be expected to be in the 7-9 range in the conference... which is right where most of us thought they would be before the year.
