Flyers Mailbag: Who Replaces Konecny
There are 28 games remaining in the regular season and the Flyers are very much within the playoff picture. In fact, they hold the last spot in the Eastern Conference so naturally most of the questions in the mailbag are about...next season?
Sure, we can talk about that, but let's take care of some of the more current issues first. As always, participate through Twitter using the #FlyersMailbag hashtag.
I'm actually surprised there wasn't a call-up made for Wednesday's practice, but the Phantoms do have a game at night. Jordan Weal has been playing center, so I don't think it's him. Taylor Leier is hurt. I would say Greg Carey, whose 22 goals lead the American Hockey League. The Flyers need a scorer and yes, there's a big difference between the AHL and NHL, but the way the Flyers' offense has been going who could blame them for dipping into the minors.
