We win 7-1 and they are talking about the lost faceoffs or the amounts of penalties we took. I see a lot of the third type on this thread.

WHEN MANY OF THE MAJOR HOCKEY PUBLICATIONS PREDICT THE FLYERS TO WIN THE CUP IN THE PRESEASON YOU CAN'T BE MAD AT THE GM OF THE FLYERS WHEN THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN.

All the Gm can be asked to do is make a good team on paper...half of you should be mad at Hartnell and Briere sucking, JVR and Giroux not stepping up, Carter, Gagne, Emery, Lieghton and Backlund getting injured. Any team putting out two complete 5 man line combos that we can and then still have a the rest of a line up we do should win.
This is a really poor reason to say Homer is doing a good job, as those predictions are almost always inaccurate, and are largely derived of bizarre hype.

Additionally, no, the GM is not asked just to make a "good team on paper." If that was the case we'd ignore the season and just give out the Cup at the end of August. A good team on paper and 25 cents will buy you a 25 cent cup of coffee.
