Late on Wednesday morning, Flyers President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Chuck Fletcher along with Chairman and CEO of Comcast Spectacor Dave Scott met with the media at the Flyers Training Center in Voorhees. The 40-minute discussion covered a wide-reaching array of subjects of both short-term and long-term importance.
Topics raised included the team's highly disappointing 2020-21 season to date, plans moving forward, injury updates and rehab program assessment, Fletcher's job security as general manager, post-Draft player development processes, upholding the Ed Snider legacy within organizational culture and business-related topics such as Wells Fargo Center attendance.
Scott said that the organization will not spare any expense in the process of trying to right the ship despite how poorly the season has gone.
