Where do you think the Flyers are going to finish in the Eastern Conference next season?

I'd be happy if they can make the playoffs. If they aren't knocked out in the first round, I'd consider the season to be a pretty good success.

5th - 8th

Lose division, make playoffs. First round win would be a success IMO.

I hope they tank and get one of Yakupov, Grigorenko, Galchenyuk, Murray, Reinhart, Dumba, Reilly, or Trouba.

Doubt they win the Cup this year so might as well get a top end prospect.

I hope not, because the over-reaction from the organization would probably make this offseason look like a minor shuffling of assets.

Depends.

If Pronger is injured and the team doesn't find chemistry?
7-13th

If Pronger plays most of the season and playoffs, and the team can muster SOME chemistry?
5-8th

If Pronger plays most of the season and the team clicks out of the gate, and stays hungry?
1-4th

I feel we'll be somewhere in the 2-6 area.

I think it depends on Crosby, really. If he plays this season, then the Flyers won't win the Atlantic so they'll be somewhere from 4-8. But if Crosby doesn't play, the Atlantic is pretty wide open. Probably a three horse race between PHI, NYR, and PIT and I could see Philly coming out on top.

Teams definitely better than the Flyers:

Caps
Pens
Bruins

Teams definitely worse:
Islanders
Leafs
Sens
Hurricanes
Panthers
Winnipeg

4-9 range. If Pronger's healthy and there aren't chemistry problems, they still have an elite roster and the potential to compete for the division.

Entirely dependent on how Pronger and Timonen fare as far as both health and performance goes. If they're healthy and don't regress then our defense and goaltending will be in great shape and our offense should be good enough offensively. If they don't fare well then our team defensively, as a whole, is going to suck hard, which will greatly affect our goaltending and our offense isn't good enough offensively to offset that.

So, yeah, ask me again when I see how they're doing.

This with 2/3. Somehow I just see Flyers on the 2nd round. With an exit.

Normally I have a pretty good handle on this. However this season coming up I am totally clueless To many question marks. But I like what the organization is doing and I cannot wait to see these guys in some game action together. Especially once Pronger gets back in the mix.

Just picked up the THN yearbook. Flyers slated to finish 4th (behind Washington, Boston, and Pitt, in that order) in the conference and have 8-1 odds at winning it all according to them. They also have Washignton winning it all. I think that is a fair prediction. I doubt they do better than Washington and Boston, but if Pitt doesn't have Crosby I can see the Flyers wining the Atlantic.
