Last night the Flyers debuted their new web series, Flight Plan. The brainchild of super secret top secret NSA inside reporter Anthony SanFilippo (who almost died this weekend from a bug bite– he’s fine now), Flight Plan fills the 24/7 gap by taking us ashore on Dry Island. The first episode provides a (delightfully censored) view of the Flyers’ draft board and their draft room, where this phrase was uttered by Director of Scouting Chris Pryor: This is a come to Jesus meeting. We got to fucking get this right.
Nice. Raw. The way I like it.
I didn’t get a chance to watch the full thing – the Flyers’ draft is a bit too nerdy for me, but it’s the summer and they had little to work with – but the production quality seems quite good. The plan is to continue these throughout the season, and if the Flyers don’t censor themselves too much, the series should give fans a unique view of the team… and perhaps Paul Holmgren’s decision-making process, which I assume includes some combination of a dart board, gun and a list of flight statuses to and from the City of Angels.
Watch the full episode after the jump.
