Wayne Simmonds, 23, and Brayden Schenn, 19, are the heart of a core of young propects who will make the Flyers contenders for MANY years not just one big run for the Cup. Wayne is a tremenously hard working young man and Schenn was regarded a Kings' top prospect a year ago coming out of Brandon in WHL. The Flyers faithful will pump these guys up with SO much enegry.
