Flyers Struggle to Retain Players



The Philadelphia Flyers are facing difficulties with their new player, Matvei Michkov. He currently has a contract with the KHL, and the situation there is less than ideal. It's a risky bet to expect Michkov to join the Flyers.

Despite these challenges, Michkov expressed his strong desire to play for the Flyers during a confidential interview before the draft.

Ivan Fedotov, a talented young goalie, has signed a two-year contract with the KHL, despite already having a contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.


This is definitely a situation that Daniel Brière wanted to avoid. With Michkov, Gauthier, and now Fedotov unavailable, the Flyers are missing out on a significant pool of talented players.

Considering Fedotov's new KHL contract, do you think he will ever play for the Flyers?
