What we want to see from the Flyers down the stretch

Five reasons the Flyers should be sellers at the NHL trade deadline

Monday is rapidly approaching, which means Philadelphia Flyers’ general manager Chuck Fletcher will have some major decisions to make before the NHL Trade Deadline. A month ago, many suspected the Flyers would be buyers at this point with their sights set on bringing in a veteran defenseman to solidify the defense heading into the postseason. That foresight has quickly flipped with the team now well on the outside looking in and assuming the role of sellers at the deadline.

Flyers panic meter: How worrying is Carter Hart? The top defensemen? The coaching?

A lot can happen in a month — just ask the Philadelphia Flyers. Heading into March following their 3-0 win over Buffalo on Feb. 28, the Flyers sat at 11-4-3 and boasted the highest winning percentage among their East Division counterparts.

23 things we've learned about the Flyers so far this season

There always seems to be a question Philadelphia Flyers fans ask themselves every season: what is this team? Take the 2009-10 season when the team scrapped their way into the postseason and pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the decade to earn a spot in the Stanley Cup finals. Even last year, the team was considered a contender but really turned heads when they earned the No. 1 seed, taking a major step forward in their progression, in the round-robin format heading into the postseason. This season is no different. Fans are continually asking themselves what exactly this team is all about, how real their Stanley Cup chances are and whether or not this team has what it takes to be the best in the league.

Flyers could prove to be contenders or pretenders based on busy March slate

In a typical NHL season, March signifies the final push for teams hoping to solidify themselves into the postseason. The 2020-21 condensed season is anything but typical, leaving March as the middle point of the campaign. For the Flyers, though, the third month of the year will hold more significance as it features their busiest — and most challenging — slate of the 56-game season, one that could ultimately prove whether or not the team is a serious contender or still another year away.
