But it's right in line with Philly, getting the wrong DiMaggio and Brett. Lance Parrish forgetting how to be an all-star catcher, Adam Oates going 20-some games without a goal. Passing on Richter. Hughes over Pierce. Two #1's for Antone. #1 overall for Hinson. Passing on Frank Thomas. Now, signing the big D of our dreams only to have him constantly battling injury to the point of retirement.
I could go on, but you all know the history...
And sorry my examples go back a ways. Around age 25 (mid-90's) life got in the way of my memorizing every roster move by every Philly team.
Maybe an idea for a thread to fill the off days?
"Biggest Philly Moves that Didn't Pan Out." Doesn't have to be Flyers only.
Ps..... Go caps/sens!!!!!
Mez and Grossman both skated today, but were wearing the green 'no contact' jerseys.
Mez surprisingly looks good so far though its amazing when you think about the fact he had a surgery that 10+ years ago would of ended ones career to his back
You know whats a hard thing to do? being stuck busy writing multiple(damn you Sports management & marketing major!) 15-20 page papers about sports and not being able to talk hockey with you guys during POSSIBLY one of the greatest series I have ever seen.
Anyway, can't wait for the next round. Might be able to talk more hockey now that my semester is over
Any word on if the Flyers would have game 1 on Saturday or Sunday? My guess is that if the Rangers win, that NBC would want Rangers/Caps on Sunday, which means the Flyers would start Saturday night vs Devils/Panthers winner.
If the Sens beat the Rangers, the Flyers would start Sunday on NBC vs Sens/Caps.
I posted it in the Round 2 possibilities thread after the Bruins game but my ipad sometimes doesnt post so I had to come back and repost it...ahhh well here is the outcome of round 2 with all the scenarios
