I'm writing this shortly before the Flyers play their next to last game at Buffalo. This skid began in January. I have watched all but three on Direct TV. How can they possibly turnaround an attitude in time to go deep the the playoffs?
Their heart and soul, Chris Pronger, is out. The captain, Mike Richards is clueless as is Peter Laviolette. And don't refer to last season. Because they reached back and played with heart, which was there all along. They only need a spark. This year there is no spark, no leadership, no heart. NO second round of playoffs. And I'm sick.

I couldn't have said it any better myself...I think they will out in the first round this year...they have the talent...they are just not using it...I saw an interview with Briere, after the Buffalo game...the look in his eyes...I can tell he's VERY worried...it was hard to watch...anyway Go Flyers!! I'm not a fair weather fan...
