Many of these guys didn't even play in the playoffs. Some, like Odelien or Ledyard, looked good briefly but are a distant memory.

If we did get utterly schooled by picking up a useless pylon, then we got schooled. But, I won't cry about getting screwed paying a quarter for my lemonade, when I could've paid 5 cents.... it's just not that significant.

The massive outpouring of Flyers fan's declaration of victory that has swept the internet for the past few hours is laying it on a little thick, IMO.




Good point...it's better to be screwed when you don't lose much. Personally, I think you overpaid a little but if Therien is that bad, he's only there for depth and experience...however, don't try sending him back.
