Pretty good read from ESPN.com on the Flyers big turnaround.

Pretty good article but last I remembered, we drafted second last year?

Yeah, they need help with their math, too. They talk about how we dropped off from 101 to 56 points, and then say that's a difference of 55 points...

"What's forgotten, after all, is this was a 101-point team in 2005-06, the first season after the lockout. The drop-off from there -- 55 points -- was actually greater than the improvement this season, 39 points."

Good read, though.
