The Philadelphia Flyers entering last season were looking to make changes with personnel on the ice. The Flyers traded Mike Richards to the Los Angeles for Brayden Schenn, Wayne Simmonds, and a draft pick. They also sent Jeff Carter to the Columbus Blue Jackets for the Blue Jackets, where they selected Sean Couturier, and also received Jakub Voracek. The Flyers were not done as they signed free agent goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to a nine year deal, as Philadelphia finally found their franchise goalie, something the team had not seen since Ron Hextall was the goalie.
The Flyers were not done during free agency as they added depth on offense as well as on the blue line. Star defenseman Chris Pronger was named Flyers captain; however, 13 games into the season he was lost for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs with severe post-concussion syndrome. The Flyers saw some inconsistent play throughout the season from their star goalie as he would be benched multiple times in favor of the backup. Once Bryzgalov got his game in order, he was one of the best goalies in the NHL. The Flyers suited up 12 rookies during the season.
The Flyers drew their in-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the playoffs. The teams combined for NHL-record 45 goals in the first four games and a total of 309 penalty minutes in an intense, fight-filled series. The Flyers would knock off the Penguins, who were heavily favored to win the Stanley Cup, in six games. The Flyers would draw the New Jersey Devils in the second round, but their undisciplined play led to their demise as they lost the series in five games. Danny Briere and Claude Giroux ended the playoffs tied with five other players for the league lead in playoff goals with eight, despite their team being eliminated in the second round.
The Flyers and their die-heard fans are thirsting for a Stanley Cup Championship, something the franchise has been able to grasp since winning back to back championships in 1974 and 1975.
