Yea. I don't doubt Snider has a hand in things from time to time. I made that post earlier this week from my friend who, at the game, saw and heard Snider call Homer and tell him to get him a defenseman.
However, I think the lack of a cap also took that stuff to an extreme because it allowed for it. If something wasn't working, you could just get rid of it, and buy something else. It's just money. A luxury the Flyers have.
I think the cap era brings about a new kind of impatience. An eagerness to get that "bargain" before the price goes up. It doesn't always work that way, however.
