No trophy for 2nd place, and each one of the playes mentioned failed to accomplish it in O&B. That is their legacy.

Carter and Richards will have their legacy, but ownership has all but given them a great chance(minus goaltending) to lead this team to victory. Can they do it, and if they do not who will they blame? This is a real test of character for this team. After the 1987 series it was probably the Flyers team I was most proud of without a Cup, quite a gritty bunch.
IMO, last season's failure was firmly on goaltending and the third pairing. I can't really fault anyone else.
