Just because the probability isnt high, doesnt mean you dont strive for it. Unlike some fans, Flyers fans can care less nowadays if the team just makes playoffs. There is no moral victory in just making playoffs. This team is in win mode RIGHT now. Look, as you know, Im fairly positive on some prospects, but in a few years, not drafting in the first round is gonna kill us. The window is now.
Yes, but you're not a player, coach, trainer, or manager, so as much as you may want them to win, you can't will them to victory.

So, when analyzing success or failure, you can't pretend like you're a member of the organization; you have to realize you're an outsider looking in.

I can want them to win as much as anyone, but it doesn't change the fact that I have to analyze them as someone who doesn't have any impact on how they perform on the ice.
