Weekly Buzz: A Quiet News Week for the Philadelphia Flyers

This week’s serving of Broad Street Buzz content you might have missed.

We kicked off the week continuing our Philadelphia Flyers Remain or Remove series, where we looked at the 2018-19 season of Ryan Hartman and decided whether he should stay or not.

2018 First Round Pick Jay O’Brien had an injury-plagued freshman campaign with the Providence Friars and has now subsequently entered the NCAA transfer portal. Here’s why you should not give up on him.

Brian Elliott was solid at times for the Flyers last year, but his durability and consistency are a significant concern.

It’s clear that the Flyers front office want the team to be in a win-now mode, so should they package their 11th overall selection to try and get a player who can contribute in a trade?

Ivan Provorov had a rough go of it last season, but one bad year shouldn’t change any opinions on the young defenseman.

Philadelphia has a deep prospect pipeline, and Maxim Sushko is another player who could make something of himself at the NHL level.

Carter Hart is very good, and that’s all we’ll say about that.

In the first installment of our 2019 NHL Draft Spotlight, we took a look at Team USA forward Matthew Boldy and what he brings to the table.

Cam Talbot wasn’t the greatest goaltender in his brief stint with the Flyers, but he may be their best backup goaltending free agent option at this point.

2017 Second Round Selection Isaac Ratcliffe has continued to score goals at an excellent rate in the third round of the OHL playoffs.

Oskar Lindblom had a dynamic second half to the season and should be a key depth piece for the Flyers in the future.
