Flyerdelphia Weekly Round-Up: November 7-13


It started promising, then quickly faded into the abyss that has been the lone consistency of the Flyers season. Thus is a 1-2-0 week that ended with two poorly played blowout losses.

It left the door open for more discussion surrounding the team, which there was plenty of on Flyerdelphia this week.

In case you missed anything, catch up with our weekly roundup.
