What we’re throwing down on the Table is some early Flyers season analysis with Steph Driver from the BSH Radio podcast and Broad Street Hockey. We’ve seen a plethora of ups and downs from a team that’s slated to grow and develop during the 2017-2018 NHL season. Steph gets into what Wayne Simmonds’ role will be this season and how transformational Scott Laughton has been on the fourth-line. We also attempt to get into the mind of GM Ron Hextall and how his managerial process has had various consequences to building what we hope is a Stanley Cup contender. All of this and much more with Steph Driver this week on the Table. (51:00)
