So where do the Philadelphia Flyers go from here? They are a fragile team that has had a 10-game losing streak this season, and now is in the midst of a nine-game skid.

For the fans, it has been painful to watch.

So I asked them on Twitter what they would do get get this once-proud franchise back on course, and a lot wanted a shakeup of ownership and management, and most seemed like they would be patient with a total rebuild of the roster.

The Flyers’ farm system isn’t filled with many quality prospects, and the parent team has grown stale and has no identity.

Yes, injuries — especially to Ryan Ellis and Sean Couturier — have crippled the Flyers’ growth this season. And Kevin Hayes is also among the players injured, and he had not looked himself when he was in the lineup after missing earlier games because of abdominal surgery.

Still, other teams have had major injures/illnesses (see the Pittsburgh Penguins, for instance) and have not only survived, but they have thrived.
