Yeo had a bump when he 1st took over, but man oh man, the cream hasn't risen to the top, the dregs and silt has gathered at the bottom.

This could be a truly ugly 2nd half of nthe season.

Clarke saw this coming and tried to get out front to protect himself and his hiring of Fletcher.

Weird that losers like Risto and Yandle didn't make a bad team less shitty.

Honestly. Is this the worst Flyers' team in history?

Two 10-game losing streaks?

Sixers' fans whine about wasting Embiid's prime, but the Flyers are wasting Hart's present and unless they clean house and have competent management, they will waste his prime, also.

They'll wind up having to trade the 1st franchise goalie they've kept and developed since Pelle Lindberg, MHRIP.

Imagine that.

Gritty, slow, unskilled, but talented Atkinson and Hayes weren't game changers? Go figure.

I honestly can’t remember feeling this hopeless in my nearly 47 years of Flyers fandom. Terrible team and coaches, incompetent management, not that much talent left in the minors. Who really trusts any of the decision makers to make good choices going forward? Does anyone trust Chuck to turn this team around or complete the rebuild? I honestly don’t see how this gets better any time soon.

. This.
It’s really sad because there are some good players on this team including young guys. Just seems like something is so broken from a culture perspective. And keeping the old guard Flyers guys like Clarke and Holmgren is definitely not the answer. I’m sure they will hire Rick Tocchet and everyone will be super nostalgic but does that really solve anything?
