At least to me they seem that way. Instead of really shocking the world ,with the exception of landing Lecavalier, the Flyers have been methodical in their approach and maintained a high price on their young players (Couturier and Schenn) and top assets (Braydon Coburn).
Some fans question whether or not the team has actually improved from last season. If you ask the owner, they are better - much better. Flyers owner Ed Snider told CSN Philly "we are better, no question about it."
Snider's oozing confidence in Holmgren's moves is promising and, to me, does not sound forced. The tone of the press conference seems to be confidence that the moves made so far are going to strengthen a club that largely underachieved last season.
I don't think the Flyers are done because, from a sheer numbers standpoint, they can't be done. They have way too many defensemen under contract. More moves are coming but the magnitude of the moves is still unknown.
What we do know is that the Flyers should be, based on their moves and owner's sentiment, much better than the team that skated to a 23-22-3 record and 10th place finish last season.
