-- The Flyers continue to reap rather rich rewards from the National Hockey League.
After participating in the Winter Classic two of the past three seasons, the franchise was awarded the 2014 NHL Draft on Friday afternoon.
“We are truly excited to host the 2014 National Hockey League Entry Draft at the Wells Fargo Center,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “This is further testament that Philadelphia truly is a hockey town.
“We just hosted a wonderful Winter Classic last season and, in addition to hosting the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, we soon will be preparing to also host the 2014 NCAA Frozen Four at Wells Fargo Center.
“What a thrill for not just hockey fans in our region, but for the entire City of Philadelphia. We would like to thank the NHL for selecting Philadelphia as the host city for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.”

Hope to be able to go. But as Flyers fans, we need to be clear: all must be booed. Some are obvious: Bettman, Pens, Rangers, Devils, Caps, Sabres, Bruins, Habs...but we should be equal in our collective booing of whatever GM takes the stage to announce his team's pick.
And, if people complain, which they will, I suggest we should develop a list of reasons why we are booing each team.
