Decision on Flyers AAA status expected by month’s end

Flyers President Paul Van Nostrand says the decision on whether to play AA or AAA in part has to do with players possibly retiring from the team. If they do retire, it puts a strain on the team to compete at the AAA level as it is expensive to recruit high level players from elsewhere.

The organization expects to make a decision on the team’s status in the next two or three weeks.
