First, we discuss what has surprised Ryan from a positive and negative standpoint with the Flyers this season. From there, we get into whether or not the Flyers will be buyers before the trade deadline. Also, we talk about the goalie situation as Brian Elliott is going to miss significant time, and how goalie prospects like Carter Hart and Felix Sandstrom will be contributors in front of the net in the future. What’s in store for Travis Sanheim in the AHL? Plus, Ryan gives his overall grade for head coach Dave Hakstol on the season. All of this and much more on the Table! (37:50)
