Out was captain Mike Richards and leading-scorer Jeff Carter and in was what the Flyers had seemingly needed for years, a proven goaltender. Ilya Bryzgalov came to Philadelphia with a great track record and was supposedly the one who could put an end to the merry-go-round of puck-stoppers who minded the nets in Philadelphia for years.

Phillies take note: Flyers’ youth being served in NHL resurgence

I have to give credit to the Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Paul Holmgren. A year after making the Stanley Cup finals, they lost in the second round to the Boston Bruins, the eventual Stanley Cup champion. (Hey, the championship, all of them, except the Sixers, come through Philly). Did Holmgren stand pat? Nope. He traded away not-so-old veterans Jeff Carter and...
