Each week we’re going to be giving you a quick glance at the Flyers in our officially unofficial power rankings. These rankings should be used by Ron Hextall for all future contract negotiations.

This week: Welcome to the Flyers Hall of Fame, Mr. Lindros and Mr. LeClair. You are our everything. Big E and Johnny Vermont Forever.

 

Onto the rankings:

Player Rank (prev) Comments
Jake Voracek — Last Wk: 1 Scoring in bunches and dominant on the puck. Currently the best Flyera.
Claude Giroux — Last Wk: 2 He’s basically Johnny Appleseed he hands out so many apples. Bad joke I’ll work on better ones I promise.
Brayden Schenn ⬆︎3 Last Wk: 5 A streaky scorer who is currently scoring. That makes us want to go streaking.
Michael Del Zotto ⬇︎1 Last Wk: 3 Scored on a wicked clapper on Friday night.
Mark Streit ⬆︎2 Last Wk: 7 Playing well, logging a ton of minutes. Unsung hero of this team.
Wayne Simmonds — Last Wk: 6 Wayne I love you but I could use a few more greasy goals on the now stagnant powerplay.
Nick Grossmann ⬆︎1 Last Wk: 9 I think I like Nick Grossmann. Am I drunk on a Monday morning?
Matt Read ⬆︎7 Last Wk: 15 Greasy goal against the Habs.
Pierre-Edouard Bellemare ⬇︎5 Last Wk: 4 Around the puck alot, playing his role. Unreal cookie duster for Movember.
Sean Couturier ⬆︎1 Last Wk: 11 Really tough assignment on Saturday playing against the in form Habs.
Braydon Coburn Last Wk: Injured I don’t really know what to say about Braydon Coburn other than: he’s not that bad.
Ray Emery — Last Wk: 12 Looked very slow against the fast Canadiens. The Dale Weise goal was a backbreaker.
Vinny Lecavalier ⬇︎5 Last Wk: 8 Vinny is a ghost at 5v5, and not much better on the PP.
Carlo Colaiacovo ⬆︎4 Last Wk: 18 Got an assist against the Habs on the Reader goal. I want more Carlo.
Nick Schultz ⬆︎1 Last Wk: 14 Never really notice him so I guess that’s a good thing.
Steve Mason ⬇︎3 Last Wk: 13 Looked rusty and #bad against the Blue Jackets.
Jason Akeson ⬇︎2 Last Wk: 16 Bad penalties are gonna land Jakey Akey in Berube’s doghouse. Hasn’t looked great on the 4th line.
Zac Rinaldo ⬇︎2 Last Wk: 17 Fought Brandon Prust but that was about it all weekend.
Chris Vandevelde — Last Wk: 19 Who is this guy again?
RJ Umberger — Last Wk: 20 Scott Hartnell had a real nice video tribute on Friday night and played well for Columbus.
Risers/Fallers
Matt Read: GOOD
Vinny Lecavalier: BAD
Injured on the Play
Andy MacDonald Might be back soon but who cares.
Michael Raffl Brings stability on the wing, seeing some funky lines because of this injury.
Luke Schenn The state of the Flyers: it really sucks losing Luke Schenn to injury. This is not sarcastic.
