The Flyers already have an agreement with American Hockey League’s Adirondack Phantoms where players can be called up on an as needed basis. The agreement with the Road Warriors would allow the Flyers to call players up to the Phantoms or the Flyers as opportunities present themselves (read: players become injured or suspended).
The agreement comes just before NHL training camp starts, so the Flyers will have plenty of players to choose from should anyone become injured early in the season. A few Flyers who have previously spent time with the Road Warriors include Marc-Andre Bourdon (2010-2011), Cullen Eddy (2010-2012) and Steven Delisle (2012-2013).
The Flyers were affiliated with Greenville during the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 seasons. The goal of every team at the beginning of the season is to make a legitimate chase for the prestigious Stanley Cup Trophy. After last seasons failure to make the playoffs, the Flyers now have a whole new pool of players to choose from when unforeseen circumstances occur. The team did not have such an agreement last season, which could have contributed to their inability to make the playoffs. The Flyers made to the Conference Semifinals in each of the 2010-2011 (lost to the Boston Bruins 0-4) and 2011-2012 (lost to the New Jersey Devils 1-4) seasons.
The Flyers will look to get back into the playoff race and make their first appearance in the NHL Finals since 2010. Their bigger goal is to earn their first Stanley Cup victory since 1975. With a new pool of players to choose from, achieving those goals will be much easier than it was last year.
