how can you say that? seriously. 200 plus man games due to injury and Philly is in 1st in the Atlantic.
Philly has been w/out their top 2 dmen for a good portion of the last 5 or 6 weeks and he has still has this group playing about as well as they can albiet a few hiccups.
This team was without Gagne for a short time and Forsberg has missed some time and Esche has missed the last 17 games due to injury and We all know about Primeau. Yeah the last week or so has been tough but jeez it was bound to friggin happen.
Not many coaches could have gotten as much out of this team as Hitchcock has.
Seriously some people are far to critical.
