23. Philadelphia Flyers
Previous: No. 16
After winning six in a row, the Flyers had a three-game losing streak. They did, however, end 2017 on a high note by beating the top team in the NHL in the Lightning. Philly is just four points out of a wild-card spot, but it may still be a year out as a contender. The Flyers’ production is top-heavy with Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek scoring most of the points. Bottom line is that their young guys are getting experience, and more are on the way.
