are all teams that could say the same, and to be honest are closer than we are to winning a cup. Plus his heart is in Phoenix and he has been in the west coast his whole life. There is literally nothing to connect him to philly at all.
There is way too much parity in the league to claim that any of those teams are definitively closer to winning a Cup than the Flyers.

The way I see it is that the NHL is split into tiers at this point:

Tier 1: Cup contenders-- Penguins, Flyers, Canucks, Kings, Blues, Rangers, Bruins, maybe a couple others
Tier 2: Playoff hopefuls
Tier 3: Cellar dwellers


Within those tiers, you cant definitively distinguish which teams are closer to the Cup than the others. So many teams are capable of winning each year.



That said, I dont think Doan will come to Philly
