Philadelphia Flyers 2019-20 camp/pre season

Have you seen a lot of preseason?  I haven't. Just wondering if anyone who's seen would be able to say whether they think Sanheim or Niska need a message (though I know some of these sins happen at practice and we wouldn't know).

 

I have seen more pre season hockey than I care to admit.

Neither of those guys looked terrible. I don't think those dudes are the message targets. 

The targets would be the forwards who can't seem to put a pass where a skater can play it. There are some dudes who've had a great view of goals against from their vantage point trailing the play at ice level, that I'm sure AV isn't happy with.

Truly after the first cuts and couple of days of practice the Flyers have looked decent. They could have won the Boston game with a shooter tutor in net and witnessed Joel Farabee prove he can hit a pipe from 15 ft and 3 different angles vs the Rangers...

So a couple of bounces and people aren't all twisted up thinking about this team this year.

After what felt like months of waiting, the hockey world finally received some exciting news on Tuesday when NHL commissioner Gary Bettman broke down the 24-team playoff format that had recently been approved.

While there were many important bits we learned, (

 — earning the win and deeming himself the champion — rightfully so, if I might add.

Well, the Flyers tapped into that energy and shared a quick video of that wonderful moment to their social media:

Things didn’t stop there, though. Gritty had to join in on the fun and made sure to let the whole world know about the last time a Philadelphia team had a bye week in the post season. It had something to do with 41-33, a farm animal (I think it was a goat?) that couldn’t catch and a backup quarterback doing something pretty “special” … yeah, you know. 

 

The hype continues to grow, as the Flyers released a full hype video about this opportunity Wednesday morning. It captured the emotions held in the past 77 days without hockey, how different this season felt compared to previous years and what the players and organization had been doing to “stay ready” while social distancing.

 

“Philly will be ready — and you’ll wish you stayed home.”

This just made me vomit.

Honestly, I'm so disgusted with the whole thing.

...like all the fans, concessionaires, tertiary businesses, Red Wings, etc. etc. etc.

 

If a hockey player scores in a forest and no one is there to see it, does it really matter?

INSIDE THE TURNAROUND

With perspective from the players and head coach, let's take an inside look at how the Flyers have built their 2019-20 turnaround. By Jordan Hall

The round-robin tournament of the

 will represent different kinds of importance for the fourth-seeded Flyers.

Firstly, they couldn't ask for a better tune-up ahead of their first-round series. They'll play each of the Eastern Conference's top three teams once before meeting their opening-round opponent.

Secondly, those dates with the East's best could help the Flyers climb even more. The total points accumulated in the round-robin tournament will determine the conference's seed Nos. 1-4. If there are ties after the set of games, which will feature regular-season overtime and shootout rules, the regular-season points percentages of each club will serve as the tiebreaker.

How could the Flyers fare in the round-robin portion and what would it ultimately mean for their outlook in the 24-team setup?

Here are three factors to note:

1. Can Flyers win round robin?

They shouldn't be considered heavy underdogs. The Flyers will be confident in their opportunity to improve their seed after going 2-1-0 against the top-seeded Bruins during the regular season and 3-0-1 vs. the third-seeded Capitals. The second-seeded Lightning were the one club that gave the Flyers trouble. The Flyers dropped two games in regulation to Tampa Bay, but one was a 1-0 defeat and the other was

 with an empty-netter in the final 22 seconds.

The Flyers have a goalie who keeps them in games and a group that held its own with the fellow top seeds in major statistical categories:

Goals per game

Lightning — 3.47
Capitals — 3.42
Flyers — 3.29
Bruins — 3.24

Goals against per game

Bruins — 2.39
Flyers — 2.77
Lightning — 2.77
Capitals — 3.07

Power play percentage

Bruins — 25.2
Lightning — 23.1
Flyers — 20.8
Capitals — 19.4

Penalty kill percentage

Bruins — 84.3
Capitals — 82.6
Flyers — 81.8
Lightning — 81.4

2. Wait, would they want to climb?

It's an interesting question right now because the NHL and NHLPA are undetermined on the format for the first and second rounds, whether it be bracketed or reseeding after the qualifying round.

That's a huge question.

Say the Flyers stayed at No. 4 in a bracket-style scenario and the 12th-seeded Canadiens knocked off the fifth-seeded Penguins, the Flyers would face Montreal. On paper, that would be a pretty favorable matchup against the lowest seed in the East. Whereas the No. 1 seed in the conference would face the winner of the No. 8 vs. No. 9 matchup.

If the league instead agrees to reseed, such a scenario would see the No. 1 seed face the Canadiens during the first round, whereas the Flyers, as the fourth seed, would get the highest remaining seed to advance from the qualifying round.

When/if the Flyers play round-robin games, the NHL will have made a decision on the format for the first and second rounds. Right now, just about everything is undecided for the Flyers.

3. The good thing?

The Flyers can't hurt themselves in the round robin. As the lowest seed of the four, they can only improve their seed. If the Flyers struggle, they stay put at No. 4 and at least played three competitive warmup games for their first-round series.

The Flyers went 22-8-5 against the Eastern Conference playoff field during the regular season, so they'll like their chances against whichever team they draw.

      15 of those guys from those "garbage teams" (e.g. last year) are still on the roster...   Is adding Niskanen, Braun, Hayes, Pitlick/Twarynski/Bunnaman going to change the team fundamentally? We'll see.     AV is a lot more "energetic" than I thought he would be - not that I followed his tenure in New York and/or Vancouver all that closely.   The team has three guys with NHL head coaching experience behind the bench. We're going to find out how much of the str

      I mostly agree, but I think this team needs more than just being a little better than last year.   Honestly, everyone and their dog had pegged last year's Flyers as a team to watch as a dark horse prior to the start of the season. There were plenty of reasons to believe they were on the upswing and going to have a year where they at least made the playoffs and quite possibly made some noise once there. That did not happen. Instead we got pretty much more of the same as we've endured no

      A few things...    I think there's a very good chance the Flyers *do* trade a defenseman. And Winnipeg makes a lot of sense because they are in need of NHL defensemen.   Unless it's for someone that significantly moves the needle (e.g. Laine or Connor), I don't think the Flyers would want a roster player in return.   So in that scenario, I'm guessing the defenseman we move is either Hagg or Morin for a draft pick or B prospect. Hagg will fetch more.    I d

      RE: 8-10-2 I can't help but think the coaching staff won't tolerate poor effort.   The way the Flyers are practicing with everything going quickly will pay dividends eventually.  I felt like the message was received after the home sleepwalk loss to the Bruins.   The effort I've seen in the games since has been very good. I didn't watch yesterday, also IDGAF about that game.  The game that matters is on 10/4- I expect we'll see a team moving its feet and pressur
