I know Recchi and Leclair were living out on the main line when they were here for the school districts.
Obviously for the Flyers, they have the added bonus of smaller commute to and from practice.
I agree with all that... BUT, I thought Recchi was living in Haddonfield -- almost 100% certain -- and that's where he was planning on retiring at... had things been different and he stayed in O&B. Maybe he was living in the ML at some point.
Even with the school districts, that is a long commute for practices... The schools could be THAT much better could they?
