Rental Period Approaches

Flyers to test market for depth

With just three days until the rental period opens, the Flyers will be testing the waters to potentially bolster their lineup. Last season, the Flyers added four rental players in Tomas Plakanec, Lukas Kaspar, Tomas Malec and Derek Stepan. Ultimately team chemistry surprisingly fell to the wayside and they played themselves out of the playoff picture. GM Borrelli has learned from this experience and will likely remain in the market for mainly a couple depth pieces rather than trying to bolster their top six. There is a reason the flyers sit third in the east with 77 points and messing with the formula could result in a lesser outcome than fans and management are hoping to achieve. 13 of the Flyers final 20 contests are against teams projected out of the playoff's. Making the post-season is no longer a real concern, it is all about positioning at this point and remaining in that top three bubble.

Borrelli stated; "If no deal is made this deadline period, do not be surprised or disappointed. We have a one of the stronger clubs in the league backed by a very successful farm system. Selling off assets at this time would not be wise, but if the right deal comes along we will certainly do what is right for the organization".

The Flyers are in action this evening in Boston. The Bruins defeated the Lightning last night 4-2 with a strong showing from goalie Scott Wedgewood.
