Since the death of founder Ed Snider in 2016, it has been said that the Philadelphia Flyers lost their identity. What was once a tight-knit family atmosphere based on tradition and loyalty went totally corporate. That has certainly been the vibe on the ice with a sterile product that has not produced to the level that Flyer fans and gamblers expect. But the Flyers worked to address that personality disorder in the offseason.

Enter head coach John Tortorella, who is brash, demanding, tough, and occasionally nasty. Just like the city that the Flyers play in. But Torts will face a problem: no talent on the roster. Fans and gamblers fear that Tortorella will revert to his old shutdown tactics of trapping and shot-blocking. Paint Dry hockey in today's fast-paced offensive-oriented teams will be difficult to succeed with and sell. Especially if it doesn’t produce a playoff spot.

Last year the Philadelphia Flyers finished with a record of 25-46-11 to finish last in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers ranked 31st for goal scoring, 32nd for power play efficiency, 27th for goals against, and 26th for penalty killing. The Flyers missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season and sixth time in the last ten years.

General manager Chuck Fletcher has been on the job since December 3, 2018. Previously he served in that role with the Minnesota Wild from 2009 through 2018. Fletcher had moderate success with the Wild, but the team was an eyesore bore. And that leads to Tortorella.

John Tortorella is many things to many people. Tortorella, age 64, led the Tampa Bay Lightning to the 2004 Stanley Cup championship. But that was the last year before the lockout. It was a time the NHL was derided for its suffocating and boring games. Known as the Dead Puck Era, Tortorella epitomized those times tactically. And he has often struggled to evolve with a more up-tempo style. To his credit, Torts has won wherever he has gone. And in his last gig, he led the Columbus Blue Jackets to their most successful era in history. Tortorella has a career record of 673-541-37.

The Philadelphia Flyers have the NHL’s 12th-ranked total cash payroll. That puts them ahead of such teams as the Washington Capitals, Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Carolina Hurricanes. Yet the Flyers have nowhere near the talent of those teams.

Left wing James Van Riemsdyk led the Flyers with 24 goals in 2020-22. Right wing Cam Atkinson was next with 23 goals.

The abysmal Philadelphia blue line has left prized goaltender Carter Hart out to dry. Hart’s play and confidence have suffered as a result. His save percentage has dropped from .917 as a rookie to .905 last year.

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.
