Maybe you guys are right and the Flyer's organization didn't scout any teams or even watch other games for the past 7+ years Shelley's been in the league. Their TVs are locked on COMCAST so they only know about players that the Flyers play against.
I never said Holmgren didn't know who Shelley was. I said those two games put Shelley on Holmgren's RADAR - as in "acquisition RADAR." But let's not take the word of the guys who know and speak with and are around Holmgren on a daily basis who came out and said as much. Let's take your word for it.

Holmgren has cherished Shelley since the dawn of mankind.
