As two seemingly even squads enter the 2022-23 season it would be easy to call this a toss up game. It is not. It is a money maker.
Philadelphia was 25-46-11 last year and struggled in a big way to score goals. New Jersey was 27-46-9 last year and struggled in a big way to score goals. That is where it ends.
New Jersey is feeling plenty of positivity entering the year. Philly is decidedly preparing to be bad again. The Devils are coming off of a successful preseason and already getting potential playoff buzz. The Flyers are playing financial games with how to configure its cap situation and its locker room figures to be a revolving door of players. They are not the same.
Obviously, the preseason does not matter. The Devils being 5-2 is encouraging though and it can not be ignored. After being a perennial power for quite some time, New Jersey is setting up for this year to be a return to competitiveness. It would not shock to see both potential superstar Nico Hischier and impact defender Dougie Hamilton take another step forward. Free agents like Ondrej Palat and Erik Haula will add goals, and leadership, too. The question will be if Vitek Vanecek and Mackenzie Blackwood can take that same step in goal and keep enough pucks in play to get wins.
Philadelphia turned to John Tortorella as its new coach after finishing with the fourth-worst record last year and with just 61 points. Torts is intense and could be worth a few wins but the team is just not good. It enters the year without its best players — Sean Couturier and Ryan Ellis. It is also going to be shuffling players between Philly and Leigh Valley all year, too.
The Devils have a buy sign right now and we are in on them.
