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. Welcome to Philly guys.

The flyers gave up a lot of experience to aquire a lot of youth. It usually takes two to three years to reap the benifit from a move such as this. The flyers will probably take quite a dip in the standings this year and may just dip right out of the playoffs because of their sudden change of direction
