I believe Sharpe is the only home grown product on the team. I hope that changes with all the recent signings.

First of all it's Sharp.

Gagne and Pitkanen could have played in the AHL, but were good enough to skip that level. Same with Williams, but obviously he's gone.

The Phantoms went from being a team of young, future Flyers to simply being a bunch of older, sub-par hockey players that couldn't play in the NHL.

When did they have a majority of young guys? I think it has been 3 years or so since they had more young than older on that team. They are moving in the right direction with Wood, Jones, Eager,etc. Top end guys like Carter and maybe Richards will bypass the AHL or only be there for a short time. We have not held onto many of the in between type prospects and/or not drafted too many.
Also next year look for Ruggari and Korovkin on the blue line as well.

Leave it to people on here to dig up some nonsense. Check the AHL. Every team there has some veterans mixed with players they are developing. By rule there are 8 veterans per team per game not counting goaltenders. Veteran defined by 400 or more professional games. The younger players are what the draft has provided by players of age to sign at a certain time and some free agent signings. Look over the AHL rosters they all show about the same mix of experience. Thought this was gone over before.
