Flyers’ Deadline Dilemma

With five weeks to go until the NHL trade deadline, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves in an unenviable position. Philadelphia is very much alive in the postseason hunt, but they are likely more than a few additions away from competing for a Stanley Cup.

The Flyers Have Had the Worst Luck in the Stanley Cup

The year was 1967. The NHL had its Original Six and a slew of other teams had come in gone with little-to-no success. California would be getting two squads (Golden Seals and Kings).
