I agree. I think that most if not all the guys on the phantoms are long shots to ever carve out a regular role in the nhl imo. There are a few that have a chance though most will not make it. I have seen so many come and go, so many that were hyped that never even sniffed the nhl. So I don’t get to excited over these guys. It isn’t hate, isn’t being negative or any of the other junk people like to throw around. It is the reality of the situation. They better hope one or more of the few junior players they have pan out, though that is a lot to ask for as well.

They cant seem to develop guys. Now that the flyers have a young foundation maybe they will be more patient.
