The Philadelphia Flyers are still in playoff contention, but they are also on the cusp of a retooling. So, let’s talk about a few high-end prospects who may help fuel it.

The Philadelphia Flyers remain in a top-three spot in what has been a rather pedestrian Metropolitan Division, where teams like the Washington Capitals and the New York Islanders remain within striking distance, albeit an ultra-rough stretch for the latter. 

That said, Philadelphia will keep playing meaningful games this month before general manager Daniel Briere ultimately resets this average roster and puts his stamp on the team. He already traded away pieces at the deadline earlier in the month, foreshadowing what is likely to come for the offseason. 

While the Flyers could make another run next season thanks to the number of contracts slated to expire at forward following the 2024-25 season, there is a good chance they make some trades while these players are at a higher value. 

They also have two aging blueliners in Erik Johnson and Marc Staal who won’t be around next season, and a major trade piece in Scott Laughton after he wasn’t dealt at the deadline. Thanks to the potential exodus, there is a good chance a batch of players from their exciting prospects pool will get an extended look in the NHL next season.  

Flyers have a solid prospects pool they can turn to in 2024-25

Given the number of youngsters on the roster like Noah Cates, Morgan Frost (despite seeing his name in trade rumors near the deadline), Bobby Brink, Tyson Foerster, Olle Lyksell, Cam York, Adam Ginning, Ronnie Attard, Yegor Zemula, and Samuel Ersson, the Flyers are already building a solid future, assuming those mentioned above who will be restricted free agents all return. 

Not all of the names have played in the lineup full-time, but with an incoming retool - hard to call it an actual rebuild - there is a good chance those who haven’t done so yet will play their first full season with the big club in 2024-25. But there are a few names not currently part of the active roster as of March 25th who are also prime candidates to join them next season. 

You may not see those listed in the following slides as members of the big club from Day 1. But there is a good chance they will play half the year in Philadelphia (or longer) should their respective stocks keep trending north.
