theScore is previewing each team leading up to the 2016-17 season.

The Philadelphia Flyers are largely the same team they were in 2015-16, when they snuck into the playoffs as the second wild-card team in the Eastern Conference before being dispatched by the Washington Capitals in six games.

Brayden Schenn is back on a new four-year deal, and Dale Weise joins the club after being signed as a free agent on July 1.

Forwards

LW C RW
Brayden Schenn Claude Giroux Jakub Voracek
Michael Raffl Sean Couturier Wayne Simmonds
Dale Weise Nick Cousins Matt Read
Pierre-Edouard Bellemare Boyd Gordon Chris VandeVelde
  • Weise gives the team some flexibility on the wing, and he's proven he can play a top-six role if necessary.

Defense

LD RD
Nick Schultz Mark Streit
Michael Del Zotto Shayne Gostisbehere
Andrew MacDonald Radko Gudas
  • Gostisbehere went on an incredible run of offensive production toward the end of last season and looks more than comfortable in the top four.
  • Ivan Provorov, the Flyers' seventh overall pick in 2015, could also work his way into the picture on the Philadelphia blue line.

Goalies

G
Steve Mason
Michal Neuvirth
  • Mason is still the starter, but Neuvirth outplayed him (albeit in a smaller sample size) last season. He's proven to be a reliable replacement when Mason falters.
