On Thursday night, when the Flyers skated off the ice following a 3-2 overtime loss, there were many positives about the effort and how it could beat many teams.
That was against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the defending Eastern Conference Champions and easily a pick to be in the Stanley Cup hunt again this season.
The Florida Panthers are not the same team. It's too early in the season to dub the last season's borderline teams as playoff teams or not, but if you didn't know any better, the Panthers were the defending Stanley Cup Champions and the Flyers were the Mighty Ducks against Iceland.
You know what word comes to mind when you think of that? Pathetic.
