I don't know if it's good or not, but you have to salute the balls their GM and owner have.
They certainly have their own brash style that always keeps things interesting in Flyerland.

Contrast that to the most successful franchise of the past 2 decades in Detroit who rarely make a big splash on July 1st or deadline day and focus on team stability, player development and internal growth.

Not saying that you can't win with both models, but there's something to be said for how Detroit does things.
