Flyers counting on new coach Vigneault to lead them to title

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The parent company of the Philadelphia Flyers has spent the weeks leading up to the season unveiling the team's best offseason acquisitions.

There are $25 tickets at a refurbished standing-room-only area at the highest point inside the Wells Fargo Center. Too far away for a good view? No worries, Comcast Spectacor installed a Kinetic 4K center-hung scoreboard that makes Gritty look like Godzilla on the big screen. There's even a sports book for fans who want to place a wager on the home team while they're sipping a craft cocktail called "The Sexy Franklin ."

But the $265 million overhaul to the arena the Flyers share with the 76ers hasn't exactly trickled down to the roster. The top-shelf amenities, fireplaces and artwork serve as nothing more than posh diversions from the action on the ice. The Flyers are +3600 to win it all and there isn't an arena upgrade that can save that number.
