The topic: Which Flyers player will be most impacted by the new coaching staff in 2019-20?
We've written about the importance of a coaching staff for a player like Shayne Gostisbehere (see story).
In 2019-20, head coach Alain Vigneault and assistant coach Mike Yeo will implement their system, predicated on attacking and dictating possession.
"He's always been a believer of getting the puck going north and getting the D up in the play," Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said of Vigneault. "I think our D is ideally suited for Alain."
Gostisbehere knows a thing or two about pushing pace and putting pressure on opponents. In fact, that's what he loves to do. It's a style that plays to his strengths.
Many eyes will be on Gostisbehere and an anticipated rebound season from the 26-year-old.
Whether it's positive or negative — there will probably be some of both — coaching will impact Gostisbehere's game considerably in 2019-20.
And the outcome from it will be paramount to the Flyers' playoff chances.
Even though this is their first season with the Flyers, the previous relationship formed by Vigneault and Kevin Hayes from their time with the Rangers will play a huge factor heading into 2019-20.
There is always a level of uncertainty when a new player joins a fairly established roster, but the previous time that they spent together could make the transition much easier.
This has the potential to become a positive domino effect throughout the team. Hayes knows what to expect from Philadelphia’s newest head coach and may be able to better help his teammates get used to the new face behind the bench.
“Playing under A.V. for four years, we had a great relationship, on and off the ice,” Hayes said when he signed with the Flyers back in June. “He demands hard work.”
