Calm down Flyers fans! The team may be off to a poor start however the organization remains optimistic that they can turn things around by March and just narrowly miss the playoffs.
“We’re not a last place team,” said General Manager Ron Hextall. “I can guarantee we will improve down the stretch. I see us finishing somewhere between 9th and 11th in the Eastern Conference this year. Our fans should not give up hope quite yet.”
For a city like Philadelphia where the fans are always looking for an excuse to jump off a bridge (have you seen the options for women to date here?) it’s certainly refreshing to see someone like Hextall keeping things positive.
“The NHL playoffs are too long anyway,” continued Hextall. “Wouldn’t you rather be doing something different in May and June than watching hockey anyway?”
