So id Snider is brutally honest, then his recent comments that the night life had nothing to do with the trades, should set a lot of things straight.

Out of the beat writers, Frank Seravalli is the best in my opinion. Carchidi and Pannacio are pretty worthless.

Overall, Bill Meltzer is by far the best NHL analyst covering the Flyers.
I am not a big fan of the media in particular the hockey writers around here in this area. Jay Greenberg was not to shabby. Not since Bill F. and Jack C. have we had really good writers with knowledge and understanding of the game. Frank S. I can tolerate. But Timmy P. is a Eskin wanna be.
