As the Flyers playoff hopes fade away and the end of another season closes in, the time has come to look for the reasons and scapegoats responsible for another long offseason.
There will be a lot of changes made to the Flyers in the coming months. A coaching change is likely on the way. The roster could undergo an overhaul – maybe not of the Chip Kelly variety – during the offseason as Ron Hextall continues to try to mold the team into his own.
One thing that should not change is the player that is considered the leader of the team. Claude Giroux’s leadership and captaincy should not be in question.
