After a disappointing 2016-17 season, the Philadelphia Flyers looked like they were starting to put things together in 2018-19.
Bounce back seasons from Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek and Shayne Ghostisbehere highlighted the campaign, topped off by a breakout season by Sean Couturier and a playoff appearance.
While fans loved the majority of players, most fans are still having a tough time getting behind Dave Hakstol.
Courier-Post's Dave Isaac took a look at the situation and he believes short of winning a Stanley Cup, Flyers fans will never get behind Hakstol.
"What turns most fans off to Hakstol, from what I've gathered, is his process. He's not an outgoing big personality so it's not like he's going to win them over with sound bytes or his demeanor. Many fans want to get on him for usage of young players, but last season every young player got better with the exception of Taylor Leier, who never really got a fair shot. Hakstol has had a short leash with rookies and tried to shelter them, but it seemed to work. "
Are you a fan of Hakstol and his process?
