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.
Who cares what the publications have to say? Really. I'm sure someone picked the Flames in those publications, so are Flames fans supposed to not be mad they missed the playoffs?

Games aren't played on paper, so it's pointless to suggest that putting the best team on paper absolves him of any fault. He's wasted our cap space, most prospect, a lot of draft picks which put us in a position to not be able to legitimately improve the team during the season. And when he sold out for Pronger, that took ALL EXCUSES off the table for not doing it.
