The Flyers are no different than the Eagles. They have a management philosophy that goaltending isn't worth spending on, and unless they bring in a GM that isn't a part of the Flyers family, I don't see that changing.
7-1 sort of did. That set them up to figure it out when they came back to Buffalo and lost 9-1 in the first week of the next season. Then they started poaching the Sabres' personnel.
