People always argue over fringe 3rd or 4th line players, but the true concern should be about the character of this team. Did they learn from last year and will the pieces added fit and make for a winner. How many years did the Skirts put teams on the ice that had big salary and big talent, but yet not make the playoffs....you cannot measure character.
If only the Flyers had character guys like Richards, Lappy, Betts, Pronger, Timonen, O'Donnell...
