Of course the article after I read it exposes Snider's BS....

I really hate Snider when he takes Flyers fans for fools.....he should know better but obviously his life of privilege and his big ego won't allow him to eat his humble pie...

I see what you're getting at, but it's still a bit presumptive. I could see a scenario where Ed was excited that Paul and the team had a good chance to sign what was perceived to be a top (UFA) goalie, and in the excitement, he got "involved" and helped woo him over with the lavish treatment to try and help seal the deal.

It doesn't mean it was Ed's idea to make Bryz the team's target. More likely there was some discussion about goalie options and Bryz was one of the top candidates...maybe Homer or someone on the staff made a case for Bryzgalov...I highly doubt Snider was the one making the call on those kinds of player decisions...I can see him giving his blessing to the signing, but I have a ahrd time believeing Snider overrided Homer and his staff to pick the player he personally wanted.
