Well put. How many times have we heard mentioned during the games the number of players that have come up from the Phantoms the past couple of year and have played effectively in the NHL. Fact of the matter is, no team in the league could survive the injury problems the Flyers have had. They were still the #1 team in the conference for a good part of the year.
