Lockout Ends, Game On!!

Flyers Eager to Build on Postseason
The Flyers returned to the Playoffs last year before falling to the Buffalo Sabres in six games. The season was a success to many with the development of youth finally bearing fruit. Peter Forsberg took over as 1C late in the season and a bold trade to get rising star Pavel Bure paid dividends as well. The offseason was successful as well with the Flyers adding backup goalie Garth Snow(1.5/2) and forwards Shjon Podein(1.5/1.5), Craig Conroy(1/3) and Keith Jones(1/1.5). The youth on the team got their feet wet in the playoffs and now are eager to contend with the elite teams in the League. The top line of LeClair-Forsberg-Renberg will be relied on, but the depth up front will provide oppositions with a load of problems. 2nd line is projected to be Zhamnov-Brind'Amour-Bure, Brind'amour's outstanding two-way play will allow Zhamnov and Bure to focus on the offense. The defense is still very young, but has grown together so that chemistry should allow them to hold teams at bay.
