They already won their "Cup"

by WCF


FFF, I agree with just about everything you said, being the tankers was their Stanley Cup this year. I think they became satisfied with themselves and thought they didn't have to do anything else at this point, they beat the hated tankers and Crysby, what more could be expected of them? I actually felt the same way anything else after that series was gravy this year. Nobody, including ourselves, expected this team to win the Stanley Cup this year. They overachieved beating the tankers and the horrific play in this series just supports the position that this team is still a work in progress. Even though they beat the tankers, they had some really rough patches in that series and when faced with a more disciplined team like NJ, all the Flyers warts became very visible. NJ has been their Waterloo most of the time because a team with a determined, disciplined overall game is something the Flyers simply can't handle.

The season is now over, but their main focus in the off-season like I said a number of other times has to be to upgrade and improve this defense. Then get a checking forward and instill some kind of the system and discipline that requires complete buy-in. As I type this, I'm not really sure that the Flyers organization can never come up with such a system because after all these decades, it sure seems like they have no interest or ability to do so.
