After another case of organizational malpractice at the trade deadline, the choice is in the hands of the Flyers highest-appointed figures. You can accept this reality of being the laughing stock of the NHL and accept the growing distance between yourself and as loyal a fanbase as there is in sports or you can finally do something about it. Time’s yours.
Chuck Fletcher's already underwhelming trade deadline week turned into a disastrous deadline day. The Flyers traded Zack MacEwen and Patrick Brown, but had a deal with James van Riemsdyk fall through while acquiring Brendan Lemieux and two late-round draft picks.
The Flyers are very much in a process. Chuck Fletcher admitted as much one day after John Tortorella continued his season-long message of building. Just don’t expect people to be vocal in their trust in it.
