The Flyers have 27 healthy players left in training camp, and they plan to carry 23 for the Oct. 4 opener in San Jose.
Defenseman Ivan Provorov and winger Travis Konecny, both selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, have unlimited potential and should build on their strong rookie seasons with the Flyers.
We pose five questions about the coming season.
Travis Sanheim is battling Robert Hagg and Sam Morin for the Flyers' two open defensive spots.
They went 0 for 9 on the power play and slipped to 1-1-2 in the preseason.
Several rookies are having strong camps and giving the Flyers' bass some tough choices to make.
The Flyers now have 35 healthy players in camp; they will start the season with 22 or 23.
The Flyers will have their marquee veterans in the lineup for Thursday's exhibition in Boston, but they will also have six rookies, including Taylor Leier.
He will be hard-pressed to make the Flyers' roster, but the speedy left winger made a strong case for himself Wednesday.
The defenseman had a procedure on his back in late April. He hopes to be at 100 percent by opening night.
The Flyers, with many veterans sitting, will play split-squad games against the New York Islanders in Allentown and Brooklyn on Wednesday.
What the defenseman learned in the second year was to abandon sexy for steady, a mode that was on display Sunday night.
The veteran had a lot of fun being a winger on a line with Sean Couturier centering Jake Voracek and him.
Michael "Arnold" Raffl, Scott Laughton, and Matt Read face stiff competition as they attempt to earn rosters spots with the Flyers this season. They are off to a good start.
