Due to the slowness of Summer, I forget to check my link to the Philly newspaper every day to see what’s the skinny on the Flyers. To my horror there was a piece Wednesday talking about my team being one of the six in the running for Mats Sundin. No thanks. We have two very expensive Quebeckers for offense and the last time we took in an overpriced, past-his-prime, has-been Swedish star, we had two really awful seasons (horrible and humiliating too); plus Floppa sat out for over a third of the games because of ongoing “injuries.”
I wish Sundin luck in finding a new team, just not Philly. My Flyers need to stick with younger, faster forwards and solving their defensive problems caused by the loss of Primeau and Desjardins. If he were five years younger, then maybe. I’ll stick with Briere plus he should be the new Captain since Smith left.
Two things are in my favor of them not signing Sundin: the annoying salary cap and Holmgren proving that he’s nothing like Clarke, phew!
