The Flyers have been VERY active in the past week, reworking their defense and prioritizing leadership. Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher joined the John Kincade Show to discuss some of the moves that the Flyers made this week. When he was asked about bringing in a lot of players who have, at one point, wore the “A” on their sweater Chuck admitted that was a priority.
“We wanted to bring in some new leaders. We think we corrected a lot of what went wrong last year.”
Some people think that trading for defensemen Rasmus Ristolainen was a bit of an overpay. But Fletcher set the record straight.
“That was definitely the fair market value. There were a couple of teams right behind us that were willing to do the same thing.”
Fletcher also discussed the latest with Carter Hart. Check out the full podcast below.
