The NHL schedule has been out for a few days now and fans are still trying to wrap their head around it a little bit.

The inbox here at FlyersInsideOut.com is chock full of questions from Flyers fans about the new divisional realignment, the way the schedule is broken down, how the playoffs are going to work now and what the heck is a Metropolitan (besides a member of a bad baseball team).

So, I thought it would be a good idea to have a bit of an NHL Realignment 101 here on the blog to answer those burning questions and clear up confusion.

Here’s the tutorial:

Every time the Flyers name came up in trade rumors – whether it was at the trade deadline last season or leading up to the draft and free agency – one name was constantly in the discussion:

Sean Couturier.

There’s no question that every other team that the Flyers talked turkey with coveted the 20-year-old forward. And there was no question that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had no intention of trading his talented two-way center.

Evidence of that came further to light Saturday, when the Flyers signed Couturier to a two-year contract extension.

The NHL released their schedule today, and for the Flyers, well, let’s just say the travel will be a bear.

It starts at home and ends at home, but everything in between is a frequent flyer’s Utopia.

The Flyers will have five road trips of three games or more (two of them six games in length) and will play 14 sets of games on back-to-back nights. The number of times they have to travel in those 14 instances?

Try all 14.

Sure they get the same number of home games as road games, but there are only three home stands of three games or longer built into the schedule – and one of them sandwiches the Olympic break in February.

The Flyers also have five sets of “home-and-home” series’ with divisional opponents where they play back-to-back games against the same teams.

Oh, and because of the Olympic hiatus, teams are not getting much in the way of time off during the season. Looking at the schedule, the Flyers only have four instances in their schedule when they get more than two days off in a row.

Let’s break it all down, shall we?

When John Paddock left the Flyers front office in January to become an assistant coach for the team, it left an opening at a key position in the Flyers hierarchy – assistant general manager.

When asked, at the time, if he was going to fill the position, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren paused before saying, “not at this time.”

It was a hint that at some point, the plan was to get someone into that chair that made sense – and when the time was right.

Like today.

Holmgren announced that he was bringing back a former Flyers player and executive to take over that role, naming Ron Hextall the Assistant G.M. as well as Director of Hockey Operations.

Lost amid the shuffle of meeting the Flyers three newest additions (there was a press conference with Vincent Lecavalier, Mark Streit and Ray Emery today) and the ongoing Prospect Development Camp, the Flyers quietly signed one of their restricted free agents to a new deal.

Defenseman Erik Gustafsson was inked to a one-year contract worth $1 million. It is a one-way deal, meaning the Flyers now have eight defensemen on one-way contracts this season.

The Flyers went into the offseason looking to upgrade on offense, defense and in goal.

They did all three things and stayed at about the same spot under the salary cap. That’s some good cap management by Paul Holmgren and his staff.

After buying out Danny Briere, they brought in Vincent Lecavalier – at a cap hit $2 million less.

After buying out Ilya Bryzgalov, they brought in Ray Emery. He and Steve Mason, the other goaltender who will battle for the No. 1 spot on the team, combined make $2 million less than Bryzgalov’s cap hit.

And while they paid big money for Mark Streit on defense, having not had to part with the defensemen already on the roster as many thought, The Flyers were able to use those savings from the other areas to upgrade their defense.

There was never a question as to whether or not the Flyers would sign Claude Giroux to a long-term contract extension, it was just a matter of when, and for how long.

We now have the answer.

Giroux agreed Friday to an eight-year contract extension that kicks in next season that will keep him locked up with the organization through 2022.

The Flyers have re-signed one of their own unrestricted free agents less than 24 hours before the start of free agency.

Adam Hall, who the Flyers claimed off waivers last April, signed a one-year deal Thursday to stay with the team. Hall will make $600,000.
