This is one of the most ludicrous statements I have read on HF.
Snider is FAR from a problem. He wants to win, he spends to win, and largely, this team HAS won. He is ABSOLUTELY nothing like Al Davis. The Flyers have played MANY different styles of hockey in the last 15 years and draft as good as anyone. The Raiders made overreaching draft picks on flawed players left and right for the last 10+ years and try to play a style in the NFL that is stale and predictable.
There is a TREMENDOUS amount of luck that goes into this business, and there is NO sure fire guarantee of how best to win a stanley cup. If we had gotten Kane instead of JVR we would likely be a VERY different team....pure dumb luck.
We have made some crushing choices (to our organizational depth) the last few years trading away picks chasing "our window", and the main piece of that effort had an extremely unlucky injury and his career is over. This has undoubtedly set us back now, but we also got within 2 games of a cup because of it.
