The Flyers have not won the cup for 3 reasons: no respect for goaltending, no respect for developing defenseman, and no respect for the draft. I think the goaltending has finally sunk in. Sadly the other two have not yet. The will still try to get dmen by trades or free agency but the truly great ones are never available until past their prime. When was the last time the flyers drafted a dman like Doughty? They could of had John Carlson but wanted a more NHL ready guy in Eminger. I fear they will trade away their pick and some young talent for solid but unspectacular dmen at best this summer instead of building thru the draft.
