They're at 26.

The Flyers got to that number when they sent center Scott Laughton and defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere to Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Both, who were top candidates to start the season with the Flyers, will start in Lehigh.

The Flyers also waived veteran Zack Stortini. If he isn't picked up, he will join Laughton and Gostisbehere in Lehigh.

Flyers Finish 2013 Draft Focused on Defense

General Manager Paul Holmgren has had to deliver some awful news to Flyers fans over the last several years.

Most recently, after buying out Danny Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov and talking draft strategy, he spoke candidly about making costly mistakes and being patient with organizational assets.

Looking at the Flyers' track record with effective draft picks sticking around in the organization could lead some to take a few tissues to dry their tears.
