Flyers won't hurry their next batch of prospects


No team last season got a bigger contribution from its rookies than the Philadelphia Flyers. Matt Read led all first-year NHL players in goals, Sean Couturier provided lock-down play in the middle and Brayden Schenn developed into a solid top-six forward.

With that much youth, the Flyers don't have to be in a hurry with their next prospect group. While some will have the chance to earn playing time during the season, there won't be any kind of a rush, which will allow the players' full skill sets to develop at the proper speed.
