Well currently we are 35-1 to win the cup. So I put the odds right around that number.

Clearly the biggest hole on our team.

Question is what can we do about it.

I would be absolutely shocked if they made the playoffs let alone the finals.

Nothing this season unless we're willing to package Couturier and some other forms of overpayment for a number 1 D.

As they are naturally in short supply and given all the parity in the league, the only potential trade partner I (cynically) see happening is with Phoenix. As long as the Coyotes remain in ownership limbo and still face a mountain of UFA/RFA contracts to maneuver, Large market teams such as the Flyers have a chance of pilfering a Keith Yandle or an Ekman-Larsson for below market prices.

But maybe that's just the life-long Montreal Expos fan in me talking.

The Whalers, Blues, Oilers, and Ducks had this problem for eons. The Oilers and Ducks are still lost at sea (despite Anaheim's record)

Gotta get a winning streak going. Would have been nice to have those 2 points last night.

I actually thought the Flyers were turning it around and thought they would make the playoffs until that collapse last night. Then I figured it was over. Now I'm looking for a good draft pick, but Holmgren will trade it for an attempt to make the playoffs.

I might be harder to get to the playoffs at this point then it would be to play through them.

If we have any chance of making it to the playoffs, we need to get on a run NOW. Starting with Boston tomorrow. While very unlikely, I think if we can get bryz and the offense playing well at the same time it could happen. I'm not holding my breath though

This year is more reminiscent of 2007 to be honest.

No it's not. It's halfway through the season, people have hope, and they're still within striking distance, they just need help.

In 06-07 the season was gone at the beginning of December. Half of that season was hoping we'd get a decent return on trading Forsberg. And then it was just getting to the summer and forgetting the previous 8 months happened.

Pretty much. It is a pretty dark time around these boards right now, given that it isn't half as bad as 06-07 was.

Flyers cannot compete with true cup contending teams. Look at how we play against Boston, NJ (who is also struggling but own us), NY... we can compete with other mediocre teams, but not the true cup contending teams.

That game against the pens really showed a flaw in our coaching... they were able to adapt, we were not.

The first 8 games killed us:

2-6-0 for 4 points in 8, 16 gf, 23 ga, 25% win

19 games since then

10-8-1 for 21 points, 59 gf, 59 ga, 55% win

That would be good for 7th or 8th seed if that form was throughout.

What's wrong with this team on the road? Why are we struggling that much?

For a team who has been amongst the best road teams in the league over the past couple seasons, I still don't understand that.

It all evens out over time. That's how it works. There's no rhyme nor reason to why a team is top of the NHL at home or on the road in a given year.

I dont know if I could handle the Leafs being in and the Flyers out.

In fact, the thought just makes me depressed.

I see this season as the unfortunate stepback that could lead to a bigger leap forward. I don't see the Leafs as a true Cup contender, so eeking into the playoffs for an early loss doesn't do it for me.
