2011/12 Scapegoat

With several members of last years squad shipped off or not brought back, the Flyers have a bunch of new faces this upcoming season...

Who do you feel will be this upcoming seasons scapegoat/whipping boy?

Bryz because he's not Patrick Roy and this is Philadelphia.

I think Pronger will begin to get a lot more criticism this year. The last 2 years he has seemingly evaded all criticism just because he is Chris Pronger.

Same. Either Pronger or Briere I'm thinking. Not because they won't play well or anything, just cause if the team stinks, the media and such will go right for the top tier/major faces now I think. I mean do you guys realllyyyy think the media is gonna try and blame Jagr for everything? Please, there's no story in attacking a 1 year rental old folk.

the fanboys who hated Carter and/or Richards will turn their attention to Giroux if he doesnt have the season he had last year.
if we go into this season with this team it will be all on Snider and Holmgren.

It will still be Carter!

But in all seriousness, I figure Giroux and JvR because they've been proclaimed the replacements.
