its actually 2 moons, but you are accurate in how far back.

Since 1990, the Flyers have been to 6 ECF's. Winning 2. Caps have been to 1...least they won it, right?

Anyway, this isnt *really* about Flyers v Caps. It's about GMGM sending out some of these nuts to acquire top NHL talent now, to allow for the Ovechkin/Backstrom years to NOT be the "what if" years. They are fast becoming that now, arent they (what if we traded for Pronger in 2008...you Tex yourself say that).
