Why you calling out Holmgren? Snider was the one who ordered that they deal them. Not much they could do, they were both showing up hungover all the time and spreading their partying habits amongst the other players like a cancer. Richards would not even agree to stop drinking for 30 days to lead by example. When your Captain is strung out on coke and booze all the time and snubbing orders from the coach there is not a lot left that can be done.

Good for him if he sobers up and adjust his garbage attitude. I think only one of those things is possible for him mind you.

I hear ya Polar but I went to quite a few Flyer games and practices in Jersey at Voorhees ice rink and Holmgren stands over the practice like hes Hitler. His players are scared of him.  Ed listens to comments from  Paul and his coach Pete

Ofcourse he listens to them, that's why he employs them. I'm just saying there is not much else they could have done.

We never even had Carter for our playoff runs, he was always hurt. What Holmgren did with the team was amazing. What he did given the situation was just incredible. Couturier and Schenn will both be stars for years to come and Simmonds and Voracek are already paying large dividends, particularly Simmonds. All four of those players are younger than both Richards and Carter, the first two by quite a few years.

Keep in mind this team lost Pronger. Whenever Pronger went down when Richards was there the team simply fell apart. That did not happen this time. I love the new team a lot more. Simon Gagne is the one I miss and I will be happy for him to get his name on the Cup if the Kings win.

No matter who is there only one thing matters, and that is that there is still no goaltender and now we have a eight years of who knows what in net.....

Somewhat of a stupid statement altogether. What would you have said (if anything) had the Flyers lasted deeper/longer into the postseason than the Kings? "Well Lombardi & Howson I can see Schenn, Simmonds & Vorcek all laughing now." moron!
