Philadelphia Flyers 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

For the third consecutive season and fourth in five years, the Philadelphia Flyers missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As a result, the front office was swept out, leaving behind head coach John Tortorella, who returns for his second season in orange and black. In the offseason, Philadelphia had three relatively useful players depart while taking in four not-so-useful players. That’s the math here: the Flyers made a big downgrade on defense and two big downgrades at forward. Philadelphia will have an even thinner lineup next season, one that the addition of Calvin Petersen in net won’t aid. In the long run, it’s a smart bet for a team that needs to be as bad as possible to rebuild properly.

The 2022-23 Philadelphia Flyers were 31-38-13 straight up and 40-39 over/under the total. Also, Philadelphia was 7th in the Metropolitan Division playoff standings. Philadelphia was 38 points behind the Carolina Hurricanes in the Metropolitan Division race. Philadelphia had NHL rankings of 29th for goals scored and 32nd for power play efficiency. In comparison, on defense, the Flyers had NHL rankings of 23rd for goals against and 26th for penalty killing.

First among Philadelphia scorers was Travis Konecny with 31 goals, 30 assists, 61 points, and a -12. Goaltender Carter Hart had a .907 save percentage and 2.94 goals against average. His record was 22-23-10, with two shutouts.

Head coach John Tortorella will bring his best Broad Street Bullies energy behind the Flyers' bench for another season. The veteran coach has been vocal that he doesn't want to be part of a long rebuild in Philadelphia, and it remains to be seen what sort of timeline the Flyers are on to get back to contending status. But you can expect Tortorella will lean on Philadelphia's longer-tenured players to keep carrying the day -- and possibly help the Flyers rack up a few more wins than they did in 2022-23. In the City of Brotherly Love, expect Tortorella to keep doling out the tough love he has always been known for.

The best thing Philadelphia has done this offseason -- other than instating new GM Danny Briere -- might have been drafting Matvei Michkov at No. 7. But there's a high ceiling for Michkov in the NHL. As Briere pointed out at the draft, Philadelphia has time to be patient as he develops further in the Kontinental Hockey League. Certainly, the Flyers appear in no rush to reach contending status.

Briere made a series of low-key signings in Poehling, Hathaway, and Staal, coming in on short-term pacts. Those depth additions will give Tortorella some experience to work with if nothing else. At the same time, can Philadelphia afford to rob some of its top prospects of playing time in favor of these new additions? Ideally, a clear vision of where the club is developing its players should be. Philadelphia has time before the puck drops on another season to get aligned on how best to use this next year to its advantage.

Philadelphia Flyers History

The Flyers were founded in 1967 when the NHL launched “The Great Expansion,” which doubled its size from six to 12 teams. Philadelphia quickly became a contender and won consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and 1975. Known then as the “Broad Street Bullies,” the Flyers were both ruffians and highly skilled. Bobby Clarke was their inspirational captain, with Bernie Parent dominant in goal.

The Flyers were the most successful of the “Second Six” 1967 expansion franchises and were a national sensation. Getting a ticket to their games at the old Spectrum in Philadelphia was impossible. From 1973 to 1989, the Flyers made the Stanley Cup Playoffs every season. They made six Stanley Cup Final appearances in that span, winning twice.

Philadelphia had a second wave of near greatness from 1995 through 2012. During those years, they missed the playoffs only one time. Philadelphia made the Stanley Cup Final twice in those years, losing both times. Eric Lindros was the marquee man of the first portion of that era.

Retired Flyers numbers belong to goalie Bernie Parent #1, defenseman Mark Howe #2, defenseman Barry Ashbee #4, left wing Bill Barber #7, center Bobby Clarke #16, and center Eric Lindros #88.
