His signature move for the flyers is skate in a straight line down the right wing laser the puck from the top of the right circle straight at the glass which would then go all the way around the glass past the other 2 forwards and sometimes 1 D who are all crashing the net causing an odd man rush. Sure it's pretty when it goes in. But it causes a multitude of problems when it doesn't, and it really didn't go in all that often.

Did you really just bring up Patrick Sharp? The fans didn't run him out of town or anything, Hitchcock didn't like his game and kept him on the 4th line or in the minors for his entire Philly career. That trade was a result of the coach not recognizing the talent he had. Williams was always hurt in his time here we needed defensive help so we traded him big deal those types of deals are made all the time. Brind'Amour was loved here, there were lockerroom issues that caused his departure, plus we got our next captain out of that deal, Primeau was loved too. Sure the Flyers have a multitude of players that were traded away to go on to win stanley cups, I'm sure you can pull up a good majority of players from any team that once they left went on to win cups.
