If there is one thing that should come out of Flyers training camp and the preseason, it is that new coach Dave Hakstol needs to find line combinations that can work, show chemistry and stick together for the 82-game season.
Under Craig Berube, there was too much line shuffling. There was never a chance for players to get truly comfortable in their role.
If Hakstol is going to establish roles early, one player who could get a lot of the spotlight is Michael Raffl. Raffl appears to be the favorite to join the line of Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek as a top-line winger.
