Reading a couple of these posters, are you guys for real or what? Write this team off because Pronger is out. For real? Any team in the NHL that is close to making the playoffs has one goal - make the playoffs. Once in, you have a 1/16 chance of winning the Stanley Cup. If the Flyers stay the course, they either win their division or finish 4th and have a better than 50% chance of winning round one (home ice/ higher seed than their opposition).
Now you are down to 1/8. 8 teams, 1 cup - and people want to sell or tank to get a top draft pick? Because they feel we are not good enough to beat the Bruins? No team with a shot at the playoffs should ever tank. This team is a Stanley Cup contender. We have a shot at the cup we have waited 30+ years for. Anybody who thinks you throw this season away (while Timonen and Briere are playing at the top of their games) is C-R-A-Z-Y.
I can understand "do not buy", "do not sell the future". However, I cannot understand tank.
