The Flyers have been plagued with injuries this season, including Konecny, Ellis Couturier and many others who have been injured and have had to miss several games.


Tortorella believes that something is wrong about the medical staff for the Flyers, he recently made a controversial statement in which he discussed the issues with the Flyers medical staff

"I think there's a huge scab on this organization with the medical situation that was prior, i was hired June 16th, my first thought was how to get this figured out on how to get this figured out so the players can be treated properly. I did not realize it when i took the job on how long some of the medical problems were being handled, it's been going on for years here. I am not criticizing any specific person, but it has been a mess.

It is still something on our to do list, i think they've done a better job at not jumping into operations, as why i think happened here. Tommy and his staff have gotten a lot better.

Some of the things off the ice we have spent a lot of times trying to stabilize this year. Players are a pain in the ass when it comes to this, Tommy has done a real good job on on handling it.

3 important guys here, Coots, TK, Atkinson, 3 important guys who are stubborn. The history that has gone on here (medical staff) has brought a lack of confidence for players. Chuck and Barry put a lot of time into trying to fix this up here."


Tortorella pointed out the players' distrust in their own medical staff, which is a serious issue.

It is evident that the Flyers need to take care of this problem, but this problem brings up the question of who will change first: The Flyers head coach, or their medical staff?
