People who blame the Flyers are clueless Snider gave this city a hockey team and a consistently good one for my lifetime. They've had some great teams and with a few bounces they might have got a 3rd Cup. The ultimate goal is the Cup but it comes down to some luck and the Flyers haven't had it.

I just want to be clear who do you think needs to be called out?
40 years is a hell of a lot of hindsight. Hard to make excuses after a certain point.

Blanketing it as all failure is extreme, but it's definitely a massive disappointment to not have another one by now to say the very least.

Your claims of Huge Snider interference aren't supported by any evidence. It's just a convenient excuse to tell yourself to hide from the fact that winning a Cup is extremely hard.
Far from arbitrary. Pre salary cap and post salary cap are vastly different and the salary cap is still in effect today.
