In today's NHL rumor rundown there are updates on the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings and their respective coaching searches, a few New York Islanders are showing their stuff, namely, Jordan Eberle and the Arizona Coyotes need to find a way to boost their offense while not spending money. Flyers Talking With Alain Vigneault? He's not often at the top of the available coaches list but one name the Flyers might be talking to is former New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault.  The Flyers have asked for (and been granted) permission from the Rangers to speak to Vigneault, reports Sportsnet’s, Elliotte Friedman.

Flyers Management

No one would mistake the hockey gods treatment of the Philadelphia Flyers this season as hospitable, but what they did on Draft Lottery night was just cruel. Even after the conclusion of a season marred by inconsistency and some plain bad luck, the Flyers received more bad news. Not one, but two Metropolitan Division rivals, the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers, struck gold at the NHL Draft Lottery. They will pick No. 1 and No. 2 overall, respectively, at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft on June 21. Ouch. For good measure, the Chicago Blackhawks, originally slated to draft 12th overall behind the Flyers, also jumped into the top three, pushing the Flyers back one slot from 10th to 11th. Frank Seravalli of TSN reported that the Flyers actually had a 27 percent chance of winning the lottery prior to the final lottery ball, the second highest chance of any team behind the Devils. https://twitter.com/frank_seravalli/status/1115808084235030528 So, so close. A jump to No. 1...

Before the start of the Philadelphia Flyers' 2018-19 season the team's hype video boasted a new motto for the upcoming season, "Raise the Bar." The motto sent a clear message to the fanbase, and the players, that this season was one of growth, the time to take the next step toward becoming a Stanley Cup contending team once again. Alas, "the bar" came crashing down on the Flyers' heads as they took a considerable step backwards in their quest to reestablish themselves amongst the NHL elite. Instead of winning a playoff round - an understandable expectation considering the infusion of talent coupled with the expected improvement of the young talent on the roster - the Flyers will miss the postseason for the fourth time in the last seven seasons. Certainly not an ideal scenario for a team looking to breakout.
