Former Flyers win cups elsewhere don't you know....Bob will probably win one before the Flyers do.
You never know how these kids turn out most of the time. Mike was the one I wanted the brass to draft out of the big five and I still feel he would have had a bigger impact had he stayed here. But it worked out well for him. Back then signing Czech players was a up in the air.
