The beginning of training camp is nearly upon us. In just eight days, the tryout for so many begins at the Flyers will hit the ice again.
For several prospects, most notably the highly-profiled defensemen, this is a chance to stand out.
Ron Hextall and the Flyers have done their best to patch the blue line with veterans and low-pairing players in the event that all of these prospects need one more year or even less before making the jump to the NHL.
But do the Flyers really just need one of these young defensemen to step up and make the team in an effort to accelerate the process? There may be enough motivation to do so from the inner competition between the group.
