What Philadelphia Flyers Need to do in the Offseason

The Philadelphia Flyers are in rebuild mode now, so you can expect them to be very active in making transactions this offseason. Philadelphia should try and trade away any players that have trade value for picks and prospects and build the team up from scratch. This is what the Philadelphia Flyers should do this offseason.



Before the 2022 draft, a few trades are made


Philadelphia Flyers trade Cam Atkinson to the Vancouver Canucks for Conor Garland, Michael DiPietro, Danila Klimovich, and a conditional 2024 1st round pick. The Flyers will get Vancouver's 2024 1st round pick if Cam Atkinson scores 25 or more goals in either of the next two seasons.

This is a good trade for both teams because the Canucks get rid of Conor Garland's contract while, while adding a legit top 6 forward in Cam Atkinson; for the Flyers, they get two solid prospects in Michael DiPietro and Danila Klimovich, and a potential 1st round pick alongside Conor Garland in the deal. 


The Flyers also trade Travis Konecny to the Carolina Hurricanes for Jack Drury, Ryan Suzuki, 2nd round pick '23. If Carolina makes it to the 2nd round of the playoffs, the 2nd round pick becomes a 1st round pick.

The Hurricanes are likely going to lose Nino Niederreiter in free agency, this would be an affordable price for a solid top 6 forward; for the Flyers, they get two good prospects in Jack Drury and Ryan Suzuki and a 2nd round pick, which can become a 1st round pick.


Travis Sanheim and Scott Laughton are traded to the Seattle Kraken for three 2022 2nd-round picks.

This is an excellent trade for the Seattle Kraken, who immediately improve their team with two NHL-caliber players for three draft picks; for Philly, they get three 2nd round picks, which will give them the opportunity to improve their prospect pool.


James Van Riemsdyk is traded to the Anaheim Ducks for 3rd round pick '23, conditional 2023 2nd round pick.

Since the Flyers are going through a youth movement of sorts, it makes sense to move JVR for what they can. For the Ducks, it is a good veteran player to be adding to young team that lacks veteran presence after the retirement of Getzlaf.


2022 Draft

5-Simon Nemec

49-Filip Bystedt

60-Ryan Greene

64-Gleb Trikozov

69-Alexander Suzdalev

101-Filip Nordberg

133-Fabian Wagner

165-Kasper Larsen

197-Charlie Leddy

Philadelphia Flyers add 2 Centers, 3 wingers, and 4 defensemen, going for a balanced draft, and improving the team's prospect pool in the process.


Philadelphia Flyers re-sign the following players:

Owen Tippett-2yrs/1.5M per

Morgan Frost-2yrs/1.5M per

Michael DiPietro-2yrs/900k per

Patrick Brown-2yrs/850k per

Noah Cates-2yrs/800k per




This is how the lineup looks like next season


2022-23 Philadelphia Flyers



J.Farabee-S.Coutierier-O.Tippett

O.Lindblom-K.Hayes-C.Garland

M.Frost-R.Suzuki-J.Drury

N.Cates-P.Brown-


I.Provorov-S.Nemec

C.York-R.Ristolainen

N.Seeler-R.Attard


C.Hart

I.Fedotov


IR: R.Ellis

Top Prospects:

F: B.Brink, T.Foerster, S.Tuomaala, F.Bystedt, R.Greene, R.Greene, G.Trikozov, A.Suzdalev, F.Wagner

D: F.Nordberg, K.Larsen, C.Leddy

G: M.DiPietro, S.Ersson


With the moves made here, the Flyers are now in postion to be in the lottery again next year and at the same time set themselves up very well for right now.

Fantasy Hockey Advice: Breakout Players + Sleepers

 Here is my list of Breakout players and Sleepers this year in Fantasy Hockey. Breakout Players Tim Stutzle Tim Stutzle is my big Breakout candidate this year because he will be playing on a line with Alex DeBrincat and Claude Giroux. He put up 52 points last year playing with different linemates every other game, so you can expect a 70+ point season playing with these two star players. Tim Stutzle is finally surrounded by great offensive talent that can feed off his, so be ready for a great campaign from the German pivot. Matt Boldy Matt Boldy burst onto the NHL scene putting up 15 goals, 39 points, and 10 PP in 47 games last year with the Minnesota Wild. Boldy is projected to play on Minnesota's 3rd line alongside Sam Steel and Fredrick Gaudreau, and it's 2nd PP unit; however, I can see Marco Rossi overtaking Steel in the lineup eventually. It is not out of the possibility for Boldy to score 60+ points, and 15+ PP this season, considering how productive he was in the second h

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Players to Pickup

 Here are some players you should consider picking up for Fantasy Hockey: David Krejci David Krejci is back and it seems like he never left; Krejci centers  "The Czech Line", which features David Pastrnak and Pavel Zacha. The line has gotten off to a terrific start and he has done a great job filling in for Brad Marchand on the Powerplay as well. Krejci has 1 goal, 3 assists, and 1 PPP, along with 15 FW so far this season.  Nic Dowd Nic Dowd is not a player who should be owned in standard leagues, but if you are in a CAT league, which includes FW and Hits, he should definitely be rostered. Dowd is top 50 in FW amongst centers so far this season and he leads Centers in hits. Down has 1 goal, 1 assist, 23 FW, 19 hits, and 3 blocks, which makes for a very good fantasy stat line. Jaden Schwartz Jaden Schwartz has gotten off to a terrific start to the season, putting up 2 goals, 1 assist and 2 PPP along with 13 SOG, and 8 hits. When healthy Schwartz is a very productive player, bu

Fantasy Hockey Advice Players to Trade Away

Here are some players you should Trade Away: Brock Nelson Brock Nelson has a track record of having hot starts to the season and then cooling off in the second half of the season. Nelson already has 11 goals, 22 points, and 6 PPP so far this season, but his best scoring season was last year when he had 37 goals and 59 points. It's already established what type of player Brock Nelson is, he is a player who excels in the first half of the season but cools off in the second half. For this reason, it would be best to trade away Brock Nelson.  Dominik Kubalik Dominik Kubalik is arguably the biggest steal in fantasy hockey this season, as he wasn't drafted in many leagues, however, his hot start has him rostered in 81% of Fantasy leagues. Kubalik has 9 goals, 13 assists, 10 PPP, and is a +4 so far this season, playing on a line with Dylan Larkin and Lucas Raymond and Detroit's 1st PP unit. It would be a good idea to trade Kubalik now while his value is sky-high. Martin Necas Mart
