Quoted from meSz:
Yeah him too! know it's taboo to say but the Flyers need to severe all ties with the Broad Street Bullies days and move forward.
I don't disagree. However, the problem in Philly wasn't Hextall. He actually did a really good job with talent and mitigating the salary cap mess Holmgren created as GM. While he never cemented the goalie position, he put a lot of talent on the ice. The biggest issue in Philly (besides goaltending) is special teams. A steady gradual decline on both the power play and the penalty kill over the last 6 years sits squarely on Ian Laperriere's shoulders.
Throw a shit ton of money at Steve Yzerman to GM , and even more at Quinville to coach , let the Qman bring in his own coaching staff and the team would be a contender by next year at the latest. I try to go to 4 or 5 games a year; haven't been to one yet this season. Might cancel my plans to go to the 12/20 game.
