This season has been an unexpectedly exciting season for the Philadelphia Flyers and their fans. From thrilling overtime wins to skating with the best teams in the NHL, the Philadelphia Flyers have shown that they do not back down from a fight and most importantly, the franchise is headed in the right direction during a rebuild. On March 8, some tough decisions will have to be made by first year general manager Danny Briere as the trade deadline is just about a week away. One Flyers star gave an interesting perspective into what the deadline is like as a player.

The 2023-24 season has seen the emergence of many young stars, one of the most notable being 24-year-old left wing Joel Farabee who is having the best season of his young career. Through 60 games Farabee has racked up 44 points on 27 assists and 17 goals while being a consistent presence in the Flyers first line.
For the past month, it has not been a secret that many Flyers have been trade targets for a number of teams. Players who's names have been floated around include Scott Laughton, Nick Seeler, Sean Walker, and Rasmus Ristolainen. Although the Flyers have stated that they are not actively shopping, they have made it known if the right deal comes along, they will not hesitate.
While meeting with the media, Farabee gave an interesting perspective on the upcoming deadline that not only gives fans an insight as to what the deadline feels like for a player, but gave Flyers fans an opportunity to see just how close-knit this Flyers locker room really is.
«It would for sure suck to lose anybody. I think this group is so close and a lot of guys are having great years. Guys that we potentially might lose are having great years. It's out of the players' control, all we can really do is focus on what we can control."

Farabee also stated that he has full trust in the Flyers management of Briere and Keith Jones and knows that his job is to just keep skating and see where the season goes.
"That stuff is up to management but for me personally I just feel like as a group we have a really good group and a really good team right now. Hopefully they let us ride this thing out together."

From the underdog mask in the locker room after wins to walking into the Stadium Series in Rocky inspired outfits, this Flyers team has been one of the most close-knit locker rooms that Philly has had in years.
