Philadelphia Flyers v New York Rangers

They’ll probably go after a veteran forward, too, like the Devils’ David Clarkson. Of course, that could depend on if Briere returns. But one area where the Flyers suddenly look strong is in goal — even if they send Bryzgalov packing. Former Rookie of the Year Steve Mason was a revelation the last two weeks, while flashing the kind of form that can steal victories. For the Flyers to prove this lockout-induced season was a fluke and they truly belong with the top clubs, they’ll need more consistent play across the board.   What went wrong?   Expectations were extremely high for the Flyers coming into the 2012-13 season. What went wrong? We attempt to figure that out. The kids didn’t grow up: Coming off strong rookie seasons, forwards Sean Couturier, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn were supposed to pick up where they left off. Especially since Couturier and Schenn were permitted to play for the AHL Phantoms during the lockout, while Read was over in Europe.

With a hefty $6.5 million salary cap hit and declining production, Briere knows the Flyers could use one of their two amnesty buyouts on him. One of the top playoff performers in franchise history, Briere was limited this season because of a broken wrist and concussion. While he understands the cold reality of the situation, Briere, who has a no-trade clause, does not want to leave the Flyers. ”I hope not. At this point, it’s out of my control,” he said. ”We’ll see what happens, but I certainly hope I’ll still be here. I’ve said it all along. source: http://msn.foxsports.com/nhl/story/philadelphia-flyers-keep-peter-laviolette-as-coach-after-missing-playoffs-042813
