The Flyers have to win the Cup.
I really wish 97 never happened because it got everything blown out of proportion and the bar was set too high. The Flyers "year" was 1999-2000. That team had everything, but threw it all away in three games. What IS amazing however is how this team has recovered from the entire Lindros debacle.
I don't have a problem trading youth for a cup. I just want a Cup.
I dont care what anyone says. If Lindros isnt cleared to play before game 5 of the 2000 ECF. we win that game and beat the Stars for the Cup. As soon as Lindros was cleared you could see the "Eric is back to take us to the promised land so we dont have to work as hard as a team look"
it took me quite awhile to recover from that debacle, that totally pissed me off, the Preems goal against the Pens in the 5th OT, the Boucher save, all that had me thinking this is THE YEAR.
