Really Really Like riley, he's a class act on and off the ice. Hopefully he can inspire the phantoms with as much work ethic as he put into his game.

He worked really hard on his game, and took his fair share of undeserved critisism. The guy had nothing in terms of technical ability, but was often reported to be the first one on the ice and the last one off the ice, often taking extra shots against the keepers. I wish him all the best, and really hope that he becomes a key figure in a flyers coaching role ( fitness i presume). He deserves a damn lot more respect than he was ever shown.

Edit: was also voted the toughest fighter in the NHL, not because he could throw a punch, but because he would take 50 of em
