NHL 2016 is starting soon as the teams and fans prepare for epic clashes in the regular season. Similarly club owners, broadcaster and sponsors are gearing up for a fantastic season. The hockey on the East coast is way more attractive to the corporate sector than the West coast making it a lucrative region to bet in. Many bets will be placed on different teams and layers in the regular season as well as the post season. You can bet on the teams and make money as well. However if you want to make more instant money, you can always bet online at the slot machines. Let’s take a brief look on one of the betting prospects in the NHL: Philadelphia Flyers.
The Philadelphia Flyers is a professional ice hockey team that competes in the Metropolitan Division of the National Hockey League and represents the Eastern Conference. The club is one of the most successful one in the history of NHL. It was founded in 1967 and played their home games at the Wells Fargo Centre located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Flyers hold the record of the second best point percentage in the NHL at 57.7%. Due to this percentage, they have qualified for the most number of conference finals in the history of NHL post expansion period. The same stats can be linked to the most number of playoff appearances by an expansion team.
Three hard questions are being asked by fans and the media alike after a strong and unfriendly preseason due to the world cup of ice hockey being in the middle of it all. The queries are:
- Replacing Dell Zotto and Gudas: The first six games without the defenseman Radko Gudas will be very tough and an instant replacement may not be around the corner for the Flyers. The same issue lies with Michael Dell Zotto.
- Salary Cap Crunch: The Flyers will need to be cap compliant by the deadline, which means some big names can get the axe from the roster in the start of the season.
- Penalty Kill Improvement: Improving the penalty kill parentage is not a preseason issue but one that has plagued the Flyers in the last two seasons. To have a successful season the management will have to take a look into this issue.
The first face off for the Flyers will be against the New Jersey Devils on the 26th of this month.
