The days have turned to weeks since free agency opened on July 1 and the Flyers were forced to make minimal moves due to a tight amount of money available given the salary cap. As other teams have been making moves and improvements, the Flyers are essentially returning with the same team as they had in the previous season.
GM Ron Hextall is faced with the challenge of putting this team over the top. His hands were tied this season with hefty contracts to players like the recently-traded Scott Hartnell and 2013 free-agent splash Vincent Lecavalier.
Hextall doesn't see the lack of moves hurting the team.
