Firstly, excellent summary OP. Flyers fans are in agreement by and large judging by the responses.

I haven't made too many comments of this nature, but the doom and gloom feel to this thread seems like an ideal place to say it.......

IMO, this team will crash in the next couple of years.

This year reminded me of Chicago last year in the sense that they put all their eggs into the 'win now' basket for that season. Difference is Chicago didn't mortgage their future, and they won the freakin cup!!

Flyers didn't come close to it, and as you point out OP, the future is neither bright, nor orange.

No picks + no goalie + over-paid players + ridiculous contract terms + horrible asset management............The saying you reap what you sow comes to mind, and I think that the Flyers will be hearing that a LOT over the coming years......Dark times ahead

The highlights of your summary were the Timonen & Hartnell deals (shocking from Flyers POV) and the Eminger deal. Just horrible.

How Homer still has a job is beyond me
