For many Flyers fans, the end of the first half of the season is concerning. From the outside it may seem like the Flyers sit in a strong spot being third in the Metro Division with 56 points with a shot at the playoffs. However, with the developments over the past week, the future of the 2024 season looks concerning for the Flyers.

Limping into the All-Star break with a five game losing streak, your starting goalie in the midst of a scandal, and one of your young offensive stars on the injured list, the Flyers are on the brink of a full on collapse.
After evaluating the remaining schedule, the month of March is going to be a month that either tanks the Flyers season or proves that they belong in the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The most obvious key to the month of March is the trade deadline. With the deadline coming on March 8, it is going to be interesting how much Danny Briere and the Flyers front office decide to shake up the current Flyers roster.

With moves being already made like resigning Owen Tippett and Ryan Poehling, it seems that the Flyers are already moving forward in the next step of their process.
The toughest part of the month of March for the Flyers is their gauntlet of a schedule. Although it is an advantage that the Flyers got the bulk of their travel out of the way with a brutal west coast travel trip in December and early January, the Flyers schedule in March is still not very forgiving.
Nine of the Flyers ten games in that month come against either top teams, or teams in playoff contention. The only non-playoff caliber team the Flyers face in March is San Jose.
Five of their games come on the road in matchups that are going to require the Flyers to consistently have their best. Panthers, Lightning, Bruins, Rangers, and Carolina are all games the Flyers have to go on the road for.
