Coming into the 2012-13 season, the Flyers will be defined by two things: a skilled, battle-tested offensive core and a chip on their shoulder. After a major team overhaul in 2007, the Flyers have strung together five straight post-season appearances, none of which have resulted in a cup. In 2009, 2010, and 2011 the team that would go on to become Stanley Cup champions eliminated the Flyers in the playoffs. If that isn't a recipe for a hungry team, I don't know what is.
The Flyers success will likely be contingent on the play of net-minder Ilya Bryzgalov, just as it was in last year's post-season. His less than rock-solid performance left Flyer fans questioning his $51 million dollar price tag and I would imagine he's not feeling brotherly love.
