Universal Institute Charter grads go out in style By Mark Zimmaro SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW

The eighth-grade students at Universal Institute Charter School, 801 S. 15th St., knew they would never get a chance to step foot back in the classroom due to the pandemic. But the teachers and staff made sure they got the proper sendoff. A caravan of cars paraded through the streets of Philadelphia last week to visit 55 soon-to-be high schoolers who rose through the ranks at Universal’s programs. COVID-19 had eliminated any chance of a traditional move-up day. So the staff made a significant move bringing the celebration to each student’s home last week. “The feedback from the parents and the scholars was overwhelming,” said Universal Institute principal Jeffrey Williams. “There were parents crying, teachers crying. I have to admit I was impressed because so many teachers and staff came out to support these students with the parades.” Universal draws students from different areas of the city, so a bit of planning went into the procedure. Throughout the week, staff congregated in different neighborhoods before charging forward. On June 9, the caravan visited eighth-grade student Mia Desheraud’s home in Grays Ferry. She was presented with a certificate of promotion as well as any awards and honors she accumulated. Desheraud received the Youth Court and the 2020 Principal's Award. See CHARTER GRADS, page 4 >>

Furness seniors celebrate graduation on video By Mark Zimmaro SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW

Like many dealing with radical changes in the world, the Class of 2020 from Horace Howard Furness High School was forced to make changes. And although the graduating class of 147 students couldn’t hold a traditional ceremony as scheduled on June 9 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the school made the best of the situation by broadcasting a commencement video for students, teachers and families to enjoy. “Despite the fact that we did not come here in person to celebrate you, your accomplishment, your success and your hard work, your diploma is no less than anything else,” Furness principal Daniel Peou said. “It’s a regular high school diploma, and you need to be proud of that.” The virtual graduation included guest speaker state Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, who congratulated the accomplishments of the class. “I hope you all know how incredibly proud we are of you, of all that you’ve accomplished and of all that you’ve overcome to get to this point,” Fiedler said. “I couldn’t possibly hope to list all of the obstacles and all the challenges that you’ve

faced and all the successes that you’ve fought so hard to achieve.” The school named Bunhay Lim as its class valedictorian. Lim addressed his classmates during the broadcast and he looked back on his time at Furness as a challenge. “We have walked, run and fallen and gotten up as one,” Lim said. “For all the best memories and most difficult challenges we have made — those things will be the strongest bond we will have.” This senior class had the added hurdles of uncertainty due to the pandemic. “We’ve dealt with stress and mental breakdowns, especially this semester with all the new methods of school,” said salutatorian Patricia Emmanuella. “Not having our senior prom and other senior days, the list can go on and on forever. But the good news is that each and every one of us here that are sitting in our own houses on quarantine has conquered all the difficulties to make it to this day to earn our high school diploma.” Class president Cierra Munoz put things in perspective. “This is a big milestone,” she said. “Four years of hard work, and we did it. Not the way we thought, or the way we planned. But we have done it.” ••

CHARTER GRADS << Continued from page 1 She appreciated the presentation the most. “It was pretty cool,” she said. “We didn’t know it was going to be so big. They had music and banners and flags. We got sweatshirts, too, but it was great to see all the teachers and staff again.” Eighth-grade English and Language Arts teacher Jean Yoo helped organize the parade, which was a significant undertaking. “The staff came together to brainstorm ideas for how to celebrate with the students during the stay-at-home phase,” Yoo said. “Principal Williams came up with the idea, so we needed to organize the students’ addresses according to proximity and figure out the most optimized routes.” Faculty thought it was the least they could do for the students, who had to miss their eighth-grade trip as well as their final days with their classmates. Desheraud will head on her own path to Central High School next year. “I’ve been in the school for nine years, so I was kind of disappointed because I thought I was going to have a normal graduation,” she said. “But this was pretty cool to see everyone again.” The parade was actually postponed for a week from the original plan, as the staff wanted to make sure it was safe and the city was still under heavy protests. The extra wait didn’t seem to matter when the cars rolled down the street. “I could feel that many of them were grateful,” Yoo said. “Just to see so many people showing up for them, I think it made a big impression.”

Saval declares victory over Health talk series offered Farnese virtually Nikil Saval has won the Democratic primary in the 1st Senatorial District, ousting Sen. Larry Farnese with about 57 percent of the vote. With all the in-person, mail-in and provisional ballots counted, Saval received 35,416 votes. Farnese received 26,743. Saval will likely run unopposed in November, as no Republican filed. Saval said, “I am extraordinarily proud and deeply humbled by the victory we’ve achieved. The scale of it, the diversity and breadth of our support, reaching from river to river, Port Richmond to Eastwick, Fairmount to the Navy Yard, is exceptional. Thank you to all the voters who supported our effort.” Now that he is on his way to Harrisburg, Saval said he will focus his efforts on helping to win Democratic control of the Senate and to ensure that Donald Trump does not win re-election. “This victory represents a new day for Philadelphia’s hotel, food service and school cafeteria workers,” said Rosslyn Wuchinich, president of UNITE HERE Local 274. “Nikil understands that there is no way to end poverty in Philadelphia without fighting to ensure that every service industry worker has dignity, a fair wage and a union.” Amanda Mcillmurray, campaign manager for Saval, said, “This resounding victory for our movement shows the power of working people standing together against big-money interests. Our broad coalition of labor, community and progressive organizations is what’s needed to fight against fascism and racism in this moment of crisis and beyond.” Farnese outspent Saval by more than 2 to 1. Saval, who raised more than $370,000, relied heavily on phone calls, text messages, door knocking and volunteers to discuss issues such as education, jobs, criminal justice reform, the COVID-19 pandemic and how to transform Philadelphia. ••

Williams believed the eighth-graders needed the added enthusiasm and encouragement for successfully completing middle school. He wanted to send the students into their high school days with some momentum and love from the school. “I felt really upset because over 60 percent of our scholars have been at UIC since kindergarten,” Williams said. “We can’t just wave goodbye to them and say, ‘Have a happy career in high school.’ We have to find a way to show that we are a community.” ••

SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW | JUNE 17, 2020 | SOUTHPHILLYREVIEW.COM

Policing the police As the proud son of a decorated police officer, I used to contribute to the Fraternal Order of Police in dad’s memory. Now when they call, I politely hang up. The FOP under the leadership of its current president, John McNesby, has become the biggest obstacle to local police reform. The FOP wields enormous political clout in Philly. So do police unions across the country. A recent New York Times article indicated that police unions have increased their membership by 10% nationwide since the early 1980s. That’s in stark contrast to the decline of most other unions that have seen their membership drop by 50% during that time. Police unions have the resources to fight reform. And they do so very effectively. Favorable court rulings have made it legal for police unions such as the FOP to contribute to political action committees. But the union’s biggest weapon is in the arbitration process. If a police commissioner wants to get rid of or suspend a rogue cop, the action goes to arbitration. The rogue cop usually wins. From 2011 to 2019 -- according to an Inquirer article -- 70% of Philadelphia’s police arbitration cases were reduced or overturned. The City has been forced to pay an estimated $5 million in back pay or more to police during the last decade. In an interview on CNN, former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey called police unions the biggest obstacle to police reform. While protesters march for justice in cities across America, police unions undermine their cause. The real power in Philadelphia lies not with the mayor or even with the police commissioner, but with McNesby and the FOP. And with McNesby, the credo is protect the cops — all cops — right or wrong. McNesby was a cop, with a seemingly “spotless” record, according to the Inquirer article I referenced earlier. His father was a cop. He’s served as FOP president for seven years. No one can question his effectiveness in protecting police. No one questions that the FOP is in large part responsible for cops getting better pay and working conditions. But McNesby’s first and last instinct is that cops are never wrong. His actions during recent protest demonstrations are an example. When Joseph Bologna Jr., a 31-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, was suspended with intent to dismiss for assaulting a protester, McNesby’s response was not only to vociferously defend Bologna, but to practically

make him a hero. Several additional questionable incidents have since surfaced regarding Bologna. But McNesby went so far as to having T-shirts printed supporting the accused officer. Di Bruno’s, a specialty food store located in the heart of the neighborhood where looting took place, responded by giving cops free food and drink. The store was then unfairly pressured by organizations supporting the demonstrations to stop the practice. The ownership of the store issued an unfortunate public apology for feeding the police. I criticized DiBruno’s for giving in. But as is typical of McNesby, he took a tough situation and made it worse. He’s threatening a police boycott of the store. Is the implication that in the future, DiBruno’s will no longer get the police protection that’s normally provided to the public? Is it really about free food for cops? Any attempt at police reform in Philadelphia means you’re going to have to deal with McNesby and the FOP. Good luck. Some observers believe that the time is right to successfully challenge the FOP. The mayor and City Council have proposed serious police reforms that are sure to face the FOP’s opposition. In March of this year, the police contract, including the controversial arbitration process, was quietly extended for a year. The city must get significant concessions from McNesby during contract negotiations next year or all the talk about police reform in Philly will end up being just that. Talk. In some parts of South Philly, you’re either for the police or against them. There is no gray area. SUPPORT THE POLICE is defined as support the police totally — right or wrong. And the police are never wrong. But as the proud son of a decorated police officer, I know that’s not the case -- not even with supposedly “good” cops. The margin for error with police is unforgiving. One bad day and even a good cop can make a disastrous error in judgment. Cops are human. Dad told me once that if he had an argument with mom before going to work, he feared his temper would get the best of him on the beat. Sometimes it did, to his later regret. Even good cops can wield a baton too quickly. Dad confessed to me that in 1951 when Richardson Dilworth became district attorney, frustration set in for him. Before Dilworth, it had been common practice for cops to use rubber hoses interrogating suspects or for them to kick down doors without a warrant. Dilworth — the Larry Krasner of his day — pushed back against those practices. Dad became more understanding later in his career. Operating in a democracy, is not easy for police. It’s not supposed to be easy. In Philadelphia today, there’s much work to be done to attain social justice. Advocating for reform of the justice system does not make you anti-cop. McNesby needs to get on board. Or be replaced. •• Follow Tom Cardella on Facebook.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Mixed feelings on Rizzo For those who do not know me, the initial "C." in my name stands for "Cipollini." I was born in Philadelphia to Italian-American parents. That makes me particularly sensitive to the history of my ancestors and how they are perceived. Which brings me to my response to the front page report in last week's Review by Mark Zimmaro, ("City removes Rizzo statue, mural"). My own feelings about these actions are mixed. Everyone agrees that Frank Rizzo was a controversial figure, both as police commissioner (1968-1971) and mayor of Philadelphia (19721980). During his term as police commissioner, I was just beginning my career as a Philadelphia public school teacher. I simultaneously joined the school district and the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, which had won the basic right to collective bargaining in 1965. My first assignment was at the John H. Taggart School at 4th and Porter in the fall of 1966. In 1970, while Rizzo was still commissioner, we had our first strike. I recall those days of turmoil and sacrifice. Rizzo, a high school dropout, was rough on striking teachers, including having some of them arrested and strip searched. I recall being on a picket line surrounded by police. Nothing happened to us that day, thank God, but it left a lasting impression. Rizzo's term as mayor included the tumultuous ‘70s. The war in Vietnam was still raging, as President Nixon widened it to include Cambodia. Meanwhile, Rizzo announced a crackdown on gang violence in the city. He was not gentle, but neither were the gangs made up mostly of black youth killing other black youth. (My late husband, Stanley, a veteran of Korea and an emergency room nursing assistant, once told me he saw more gunshot victims during that time than he saw as a medic on the battlefield.) Long-term solutions like job creation were in the works, but Mayor Rizzo concentrated first

Free public education not a constitutional right In her reply to Rich DiGiacomo’s proposal for public school tuition, Gloria Endres erroneously stated that “free public education is a constitutional right.” Such a right has never been enumerated nor implied in our Constitution. In fact, over 180 countries specifically use the word education in their constitutions – ours does not. The nation’s founders were well aware that an educated citizenry was crucial to a functioning democracy but left it to the states to decide if they wanted to provide one or what form it would take. Our country has adhered to this federal system of states assuming those powers not delegated to Congress in the Constitution ever since.

on law enforcement and stopping the bloodshed. Some black survivors of that era do give him credit for restoring order and saving lives. Depending on your point of view, Frank Rizzo was a hero or a bully. But he was a man of his times, dealing sometimes with life and death disruptions of the peace. As I said, my feelings remain varied. All this has me thinking about all the public art dedicated to historic figures and how they are being judged by modern ideals and mores. I recall writing a piece years ago defending Christopher Columbus from those who wanted to tear down all his statues and monuments. Columbus was also a man of his times. He went on a journey for God, gold and glory. The fact that he discovered an uncharted continent filled with indigenous people, who suffered from the encounter, does not take away from the advancements the discovery created. He stitched two half worlds into one. I understand those who want to remove symbols of oppression from the public square - like Confederate flags. We must, however, be careful not to erase the history of oppression that some of these symbols embody. The institution of slavery, for example, existed in all parts of the world, in all cultures and races. Twelve of our presidents, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, owned slaves at some point in their lives. Even the Quaker founder of Philadelphia, William Penn, owned some slaves at one point. Slavery in America was legal until the 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished it. The point, of course, is that we must judge all historic figures in the context of the times in which they lived. We can give them credit for the positive things they accomplished while acknowledging their human failures. Civil rights are still evolving. Endless wars still happen. We can teach both the true history of our American ancestors and call out the injustices that sometimes occurred during their lifetimes. We really should think several times before destroying their images, if doing so also abolishes the history of the times they occupied. Gloria Cipollini Endres In 1973, after holding that education “…is not a fundamental right,” the U.S. Supreme Court has been reluctant to hear cases involving educational matters, preferring to have them adjudicated in federal courts. All 50 states have provisions in their constitutions for education but they must comply with the rights established by the First and 14th amendments. As far as our commonwealth, it, along with every state, has codified its educational responsibilities. But, as with our national Constitution, there is no mention or guarantee of a right to education in the articles or amendments of the state’s document. You have to refer to Pennsylvania Code Section 22, 12.1, where it explicitly states that Pennsylvania citizens are “…entitled to a free and full education in a public school.” An entitlement is NOT a right, it is more an expectation of government put into law to address a need. Frank Cipparone

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Leftists are destroying the U.S. I got a good laugh over Jeff Keith's pronouncement that he's so glad to see Mayor Rizzo's statue removed. One can only assume that now that his conscience has been "cleared," he can sit comfortably in a corner, petting his favorite llama, and sucking his thumb. It's totally amazing that a supposed grown man gets his "knickers in a twist" over a statue of a man, yet he obviously joined in and "prayed" with the "peaceful" protesters around City Hall for the last two weeks. Peaceful protests, which are etched in our founding documents, do not include rioting, looting, burning, vandalism. Peaceful means just that. If we're going to go this route, let me offer the following. We have had three black mayors in this city and, as far as I know, not one of them complained about the statue. It wasn't until Kenney and his cohort Helen Gym (who is not even originally from this area) put this issue in the forefront instead of addressing the issues that really plague this city. Wilson Goode

dropped a bomb on a neighborhood, yet he had a street named after him. Does that not bother Jeff Keith? Turning to our history (something the Left is determined to eradicate and forcefeed lies to our school children like the "1619 Project"), Franklin Roosevelt, who has numerous places named after him, including FDR Park in South Philly, threw into internment camps not only Americans of Japanese descent, but also Americans of Italian and German descent. FDR also forced a ship full of Jews escaping Nazi Germany to turn around and go back, probably to their ultimate deaths. If Jeff Keith is so traumatized by the Rizzo statue, does he not have the same concern for FDR's actions? The leftists (I can't even refer to them as liberals anymore) are on a route to destroy this country, to bastardize American history and, plainly, lie. I assume Jeff Keith can live a healthy and comfortable life now that the "horror" of Mayor Rizzo's statue is gone. I can also assume he is engulfed in snowďŹ&#x201A;akes. As a side note, may I congratulate the Review on the very straightforward cartoon of Kenney and his new statue. Brilliantly done. Rosary Casiello

A local professional boxing card that included an all-Philadelphia main event has been postponed again. Raging Babe, which is run by Bristol native Michelle Rosado, announced on Friday that the event, featuring lightweights Steve Ortiz (11-0, three KOs) and Damon Allen (16-1-1, ďŹ ve KOs), will not be able to take place on its rescheduled date of June 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Raging Babe, the ďŹ ghters on the card have agreed to ďŹ ght as soon as a date becomes available once the state enters the Green Phase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a tough time to be a promoter who depends on the live gate," said Rosado, founder and promoter at Raging Babe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Promotional companies that have television deals are able to put on shows with no fans. The middle-class promoters, those of us who need people in seats to make the events work ďŹ nancially, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out in the cold, temporarily.â&#x20AC;? The event was originally scheduled for March 27 at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia before it was pushed back three months. Rosado is conďŹ dent the show will go on once it receives the green light. The promotion holds dates every month through the end of the year, and a rescheduled date could come soon.

Roadwork through July on 22nd Street

Police looking for suspects in beauty store break-ins

By Mark Zimmaro SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW

Roadwork along 22nd Street will begin next week, according to the Philadelphia Office of Complete Streets Department. A street resurfacing and safety improvements project will result in full street closures and parking restrictions on 22nd Street between Snyder Avenue and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway beginning on June 15. The project, which is contracted to James J. Anderson Construction Co. and is paid for by federal and city funding, is part of the City Wide Resurfacing CW106 Project. It is expected to wrap up by the end of July pending weather and special events in the area. The project includes resurfacing and restriping of 22nd Street between Snyder Avenue and the Parkway. It will also move the bicycle lane from the east to the west side of the street. A protected bike lane with a parking buffer will be installed along the road from Washington Avenue to South Street. Flexible delineator posts will be installed

from South to Market Street. New intersection treatments will be installed to designate bicycle and vehicle space in the roadway. Recent studies found that there are higher than average rates of severe traffic crashes on 22nd Street, and the road was deemed a “Vision Zero High Injury Network” corridor by the city. The improvements are expected to reduce the number of crashes that occur between right-turning vehicles and bicyclists. It also hopes to reduce potential conflict points with public transportation vehicles. Bright green intersection treatments at key locations will help travelers by increasing predictability and awareness, according to officials. Kelley Yemen, director of the city’s Office of Complete Streets, says that protecting the bike lanes with delineator posts will cut down hazardous situations. “Protected bicycle lanes serve more potential riders than painted bicycle lanes,” Yemen said. “Protected bicycle lanes will allow for more Philadelphians, not just the bold or athletic, to use a bicycle for transportation and recreation. Research shows that many people who would like to

Walnut Street Theatre announced its 202021 season, which consists of three musicals, a supernatural comedy by Noël Coward and a Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic. The Walnut will open its 212th season with the premiere of a revised version of Rocky, the Musical. The show, which runs from Sept. 8 to Oct. 25, is based on the Academy Award-winning film, Rocky. Next, Disney’s The Little Mermaid will be in town from Nov. 17 to Jan. 17, 2021. Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, challenges her father’s authority as she dreams of finding her own way in the world above the sea. Then, Coward’s Blithe Spirit will play from Jan. 26 to March 14, 2021. The show centers on a novelist, his second wife and his deceased first wife. The season will continue with the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, from March 23 to May 9, 2021.

All work is expected to be performed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and residents should expect parking restrictions over the next few weeks. Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted in advance of each scheduled activity, and vehicles must be removed from the work sites during the hours posted to avoid being towed. In the event a car is towed, residents should contact their local police district to determine its location.

Philadelphia Dairy milkmen bringing back home deliveries By Tom Waring

JUNE 28

SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW

Erin Clancy-Carfagno works in administration in her dad’s ice cream and dairy distribution businesses, and heard recently from a Merion Station doctor who was working from home doing telehealth and caring for his four kids. The family needed a variety of products, including milk, but grocery stories were putting limits on the number of items a customer could buy during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. “I can get you six gallons of milk,” ClancyCarfagno told the doctor. Clancy-Carfagno, who lives in Winchester Park, considers the doctor the inspiration for her business, Philadelphia Dairy, which launched June 1. Philadelphia Dairy has a website (philadairy. com), is on Facebook and Instagram and further spreads the word via yard signs and its four wrapped delivery vehicles. “So far, it’s been a lot of referrals and word of mouth,” Clancy-Carfagno said. Rick Clancy, who lives in Northern Liberties, has been in the ice cream and dairy distribution business for 44 years, including 32 years as an owner. He operates Ice Cream Direct Store Distribution and Wholesale Dairy Company, oldfashioned but very successful businesses with 47 full-time employees and 3,000 customers that generally consist of markets, restaurants and bakeries in the Philadelphia area. Clancy’s businesses have been considered essential during the pandemic, leading some customers to ask, “Do you do home deliveries?” That feedback helped Clancy-Carfagno to think of starting her own company. Deliveries go to Philadelphia, the suburbs and, soon, South Jersey. “I’m getting a lot of inquiries from the Cherry Hill and Haddonfield areas,” she said. “And Trenton is a hop, skip and a jump from here.” A graduate of St. Timothy Elementary School, she went on to be a cheerleader at St. Hubert and Penn State. She was also a gymnast at the Northeast Family YMCA. She earned a master’s at Penn, and taught early grades for four years in Virginia and in Pottstown, in the Owen J. Roberts School District. All the while, she was helping at her dad’s businesses, putting in a good number of hours. As the 2016-17 school year was winding down, she decided to join her dad’s businesses full time. “I had to make the really hard decision to leave teaching,” she said.

Free to attend, food and drink pay-as-you-go.

OCTOBER 3

Philadelphia Dairy owner Erin Clancy-Carfagno promises home-delivered refrigerated and frozen products will arrive at doorsteps at the perfect temperature. Clancy-Carfagno and her husband, Josh (a Father Judge graduate), have an 11-month-old daughter. She believes the organization and discipline she learned in the teaching profession are needed in the business world. “It’s really served me well,” she said. Philadelphia Dairy offers frozen and refrigerated items such as orange juice, eggs, butter, milk, water, iced tea, ice cream, desserts and novelties. Most of the products come from Clover Farms in Reading. The ice cream comes from Jack & Jill, which would also be able to supply deli products, if Philadelphia Dairy expands into that market. Clancy-Carfagno generally works out of a distribution site at 2900 Bristol Oxford Valley Road in Levittown. There is a $20 minimum order, and a $5 delivery charge for all orders under $50. Prepayment is made by credit card after ordering online or at 267-594-4278. Customers must be home to accept the delivery. “It’s farm fresh,” she said of the goods. In the early stages, all customers are given a four-pack sampler of lemonade, orange juice,

milk and chocolate milk. Clancy-Carfagno could have hired an outside company to make the deliveries, but she decided to use current employees of her dad’s companies. The drivers wear “Milkman” hats to give the delivery an old-time feel. “I wanted to bring the nostalgic feeling back,” she said. “I wanted customers to know who was coming to their door. We’re trying to bring back the feeling of the milkman home delivering.” While the Main Line doctor was looking for deliveries during the pandemic, Clancy-Carfagno sees families, senior citizens and people wanting what Philadelphia Dairy offers. One key to success will be repeat customers. The businesswoman said Philadelphia Dairy prices its products to be in line with Acme and Giant. Customers will save time by avoiding crowded stores, and she promises a friendly face making the deliveries. The refrigerated and frozen products will arrive at the proper temperature. “Buyers’ buying habits have changed,” she said. “More people are looking for time-saving solutions. It’s customer-service based, face to face and intimate. And people shouldn’t have to overpay.” ••

Flyers fans should temper expectations By Mark Zimmaro SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW

Hockey enthusiasts should be excited, as the National Hockey League has created a plan to officially begin training camps on July 10. There are still plenty of details to iron out, as the league faces obstacles such as international travel restrictions, quarantines and safety concerns for players and staff. Not to mention free-agent contracts expire at the end of the month — not just for players — but for some coaches, scouts and other personnel. There are also no minor leagues to draw players from, as the American Hockey League and East Coast Hockey League shut down operations until next season. But besides all that, and once the NHL figures out which two hub cities will host events (without fans), actual gameplay could be very unpredictable. The Flyers had won nine out of their final 10 games before the pause, vaulted up the standings to second place in the Metropolitan Division and were looking like contenders. However, these days, Flyers fans should temper expectations. Best-case scenario, once July 10 arrives, and if the NHL gives the green light at that time to proceed, we’re looking at a good three weeks of training camp before any real action gets going. Enter: August hockey. The league paused in mid-March, meaning players won’t have participated in a real game for about five months. That’s about the same amount of time as an offseason any other year for a team that didn’t make the playoffs. Since 2012, the Flyers have qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs every other year. Odd years bad, even years good. And they were certainly on pace in 2020 to keep that trend going before the pandemic hit. So what does this mean? Do we

Carter Hart could be the main factor in the Flyers’ postseason run. The 21-year-old netminder has yet to play an NHL playoff game but had success at other levels, including the World Junior Championships. get the 2020 Flyers who were bulldozing their way to their first potential playoff series victory in eight years? Or do we get the next version, which according to the rotation, is a team that will come up lame? Might as well flip a coin at this point. Most players haven’t skated since the break. Only the lucky ones like Ivan Provorov had access to private rinks. You can bet the other 95 percent of the league will resemble Bambi on ice when things get started. Aside from all the COVID-related effects, let’s take a look at some actual hockey-related reasons on whether the Flyers can make a significant run.

We’ll start with the positive stuff first by listing the reasons why they should absolutely win the Stanley Cup this summer, … er fall? Who knows? Strength down the middle: The Flyers can be considered one of the deepest teams down the middle with Sean Couturier, Kevin Hayes and Scott Laughton all playing center. Don’t forget Claude Giroux could be moved back to his natural position in a pinch. The Flyers were one of the best teams in faceoff percentage during the regular season. Youth and depth: Only nine teams were younger in average age than the Flyers when the season start-

ed, and only six of those teams are still alive. Although most teams will begin the playoffs at full strength, things could go downhill quickly during a condensed schedule, depending on the fitness players maintained during this long break. The Flyers have young legs and depth at their disposal. The additions of veterans Derek Grant and Nate Thompson should really come in handy. Goaltending: Carter Hart is unproven in the postseason but he has a winning pedigree pacing Canada to a gold medal in the World Junior Championships. If the kid gets hot, look out. Experience: It’s been a while but

Find local news online at southphillyreview.com

Giroux proved before that he can elevate his play during the postseason. You can lump Couturier into that mold after his performance two years ago against Pittsburgh. Coaching: Alain Vigneault turned in a Jack Adams-worthy performance in his first year in Philadelphia. An experienced group of assistant coaches have also proved valuable. Lindblom Effect: The Flyers haven’t forgotten their good buddy, Oskar Lindblom, who is finishing up his treatments for Ewing’s sarcoma. You can never downplay an emotion lift when things get tough. And here are the reasons the Flyers will likely get bounced in the first round: Youth: There’s a lot of it, especially on the blue line. Provorov is the Flyers;’ true No. 1 guy and he’s only 23. Philippe Myers (also 23), Travis Sanheim (24) and Robert Hagg (25) are also still in their early 20s. This could prove problematic, as line matchups become more of a chess match in the postseason. Goaltending: Carter Hart has played exactly zero NHL playoff games. If he falters, the Flyers won’t go far. But here’s the good news: Matt Murray and Jordan Binnington each lifted the Cup during their first respective shots at it. Inexperience: Although there’s lots of regular season experience, most of these guys have never been to a conference final or a Stanley Cup final. It’s a different world. The power play: The Flyers were ranked just 14th in the league with the man advantage in the regular season. Hey, at least no one in the crowd will be yelling “Shoot!”, right? Just Because: It’s hockey. Anything can happen in a normal year. Remember the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings winning it all in 2012? Remember the St. Louis Blues being in last place in the league last January before hoisting the Cup? Playoff hockey is a wacky time. Enjoy it, but remember to temper those expectations. ••
