NHL IN 30-2013/14: PHILADELPHIA FLYERS
In 2013/14, the Philadelphia Flyers are looking to put behind a disastrous lockout-shortened season where they missed the playoffs for only the second time since 1994. Major changes were in order as GM Paul Holmgren began to re-tool the roster by using his compliance buyouts on veterans Daniel Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov. After being decimated by injuries on the blue-line, the team traded for offensive defenseman Mark Streit from the New York Islanders. His addition will provide further firepower for a power-play that ranked third in the NHL last season.
