What does this Flyers team need? Does it need a new culture? Does it need a new GM? Does it need a new coach?
While the offense doesn’t score and the defense doesn’t actually play defense, this team is missing a lot more than everything stated above. What it’s truly missing is laughter.

The fans took on the challenge and haven’t disappointed. Behold the HFBoards thread in all its glory.
Here are some of the more memorable posts so far:
Rest assured, these fans aren’t even close to done posting some of the funniest gifs/pictures so keep an eye out.
