    They do need to rebulld but trading your young franchise player to start a rebuild may be the dumbest thing a team could do. Hypothetically if they started rebuiding now they could be done by time Giroux was 28-29 or so and he'd be in his prime, so why would trading him for a rebuild make sense?

    ....lol my bad

    Still though. I believe they need to get rid of guys like Timmonen and Briere and maybe Hartnell too before they lose their value. They already have a good start to a rebuild in Giroux, Read, Schenn, Schenn, Couturier, they would keep MEzsaros and Coburn, Simmonds, Voracek. They have a pretty crappy farm system overall but if they just traded a few of the older guys and resorted to being a bottom 10 team for 2 or 3 years, theyd have the money and players to still becoem a good team as soon as they wanted but theyd have restored the farm, mayeb gotten a few potential big time players, and would have only wasted 2-3 years

    honestly they have good enough veteran players that there rebuild can be really quick and there gm has done it before, i dont even think they are going to miss the playoffs this year but if they do i wouldnt be surprised if they are locked in a cup contender next year. i still have a feeling when the time comes there is going to be some ******** gm that trades for bryz unfortunately and actually give the flyers value in return and thats when we are ****ed

    Flyers don't need to rebuild. They have a ton of young talent with Giroux, Couturier, Simmonds, Schenn, Schenn, Voracek, Read along with decent prime age talent with Hartnell, Coburn, and Talbot.

    Through 9 games, the Flyers problem has been playing 60 minutes. We've given up entirely too many breakaways off of bad/careless turnovers. We will play a very solid period and come out of it down 1-0 because of one silly pass in the defensive zone.

    If the injuries continue to pile up and we miss the playoffs, I wouldn't mind a good draft pick. I have a feeling we will sneak into the 6-8 seed though.

    Yeah there's no reason for a "rebuild". Do they need to retool somethings? Yeah, they need to move some talent around. I honestly think this franchise needs to move a B.Schenn or a Couturier for a goal scoring winger. We also need to transition the $6m from Timmonen into a younger defensemen. That said, they're not like some of the other older franchises who need a rebuild, nor are they devoid of young talent (devoid of prospects? Yes, but this is different).
    Don't give up on us now...

    I think the Flyers need to be concerned about their defense in the short, medium and long term.

    There's not alot of upside there imo. Letting Carle walk was a problem.

    Pronger is likely completely finished and Kimmo is 37.

    Do I really like the idea of building around Meszaros and Couburn and Luke Schenn in the long term?

    Not particularly

    Flyers re-sign Kimmo Timonen to a 1 year $6 million extension. A lot of money but they couldn't afford to lose him.

    That's pretty steep for an aging defenseman
