Jody Shelley Appreciation Thread

Today at noon officially ends the tenure of the greatest Philadelphia Flyer ever


Jody "Superstar" Shelley





The skill and determiantion displayed in those 2 goals taken from so many he scored as a Flyer are just the tip of the iceberg to what he gave us when he laced up his skates to hit the ice.

I simply cannot believe it's over. We were so blessed to have such an amazing physical speciment and talent on this roster for 3 seasons. I know I'm not the only one that can't wait to see his #45 raised to the Well Fargo Centre rafters.

God bless you Jody!

Superstar is out?

Damn.

And we only signed Rosehill for 0.68m.

What a ripoff that we're not getting our 1.00m+ press-box hero this year.

I appreciate... that he's no longer a Flyer.

I appreciate... that he's no longer overpaid by the Flyers.

I appreciate... that he won't be in the team photo.

I appreciate... that he might be good in the room, and that's where he should have stayed.

He'll probably be working for us in some type of role soon so I don't think this is the last of Shelley.

Still, I laughed for like 5 minutes when he blocked Byfuglien's shot to go score a bomb right after in Atlanta. Great moments.

The signing was a horrabad cap hit. I am still sure they only watched only the games he played vs us when he was a Rag.



However, hopefully he can stay on in some capacity, guy seemed very well liked and a good guy. His snipes were awesome though... makes you realise how he got so many points at Jr's!

Another one whose cap hit was supposed to ruin the team. Hot air, as usual.

Best part of the Atlanta goal up there is the commentary. Once he blocks the short his voice gets excited for a second about the breakaway chance before returning to normal at he realises itís Shelley about to shoot
