Tomorrow, Wednesday (September 16th), opens the 2009-2010 preseason for the Philadelphia Flyers. The team goes on the road, to play the Detroit Red Wings. Unfortunately, I believe the game is not televised.
Now, there's probably a lot of people who don't like preseason, since the result of the game doesn't factor towards making the post-season or being eliminated, and the top players for the Flyers don't play much.
I on the other hand, really enjoy preseason. You get the opportunity to see how the prospects are doing, and just watching the lesser talented, battle out hard to try and make the team...and the games matter a lot to these guys. I just enjoy of watching hockey for hockey and not worry about the heart aches of whether the Flyers are going to win or not.
So, anyway. What do you guys expect from the Flyers in this first preseason game. If I'm right, the top Flyers players won't play tomorrow at all. Usually the prospects and rookies play on the road, and the top players for the team will see time at home games.
So for the first period anyway, the Red Wings top players should play against the Flyers' prospects and rookies, right?
So just to see what your opinions are...what will ya be looking for and expecting from the Flyers as they open the Preseason on Wednesday?
