Agreed but my point is, if they let Hamels go they are obviously letting the window close and letting the team fall back into obscurity. If they sign hamels to a 3-5 year deal they are showing me, and a lot of other fans at least, that they are looking to retool and remain in the hunt even if it takes a down year or two. Part of the reason that the Flyers have such a great fanbase is that even when they sucked a few years back we all hung in there knowing Snyder wasnt going to let the team pick in the top 5 two years in a row.
