Ed Snider issues win-or-else ultimatum to his Philadelphia Flyers
July 12, 2002
PHILADELPHIA (CP) – The Flyers will be rebuilt if they can’t win with new coach Ken Hitchcock, says club chairman Ed Snider. “We want to see how everything plays out this season with this particular group of players,” says Snider. “If it doesn’t work out this year, then it’s time to go in a different direction.
“If this team can’t win under Ken Hitchcock, then I am convinced it can’t win under anyone.”
Roman Cechmanek has pretty much proven himself as an inconsistent and liable goaltender. Should he stay with the Flyers?
Stars will fall, which ones though?
And…..some possible trades that may happen.
Leafs president Ken Dryden and coach-GM Pat Quinn will be staying with the organzation, the Toronto Star reported.
This is defiantly a disappointment for us Flyers fans. No doubt about it. We win one of the most hard fought entertaining series of our history only to be knocked out of the playoffs again by the Ottawa Senators. We have a very talented team with a perfect mixture of speed, size, and grit. So what went wrong?
Well, It was thought to be the other way around for retirement, at leats thats how most thought it to be. Yzerman with injury’s would hang up the skates, especially after being Zipped in the 1st round.
And… Roy was thought to play at least one more year. But reports have him hanging up the pads.
Hicks: Stars no longer for sale
Owner notes significant changes in country, economic climate
…but I’m ready to dismantle the Stars. I spend a buttload on that team each year, including the $4000 i just ponied up for the next two rounds THAT I WON’T EVEN FRIGGIN’ GET TO WATCH!
Heres your chance to let everyone know what YOU think your team will do this offseason and what would you do if you could call the shots for team….
As the rumors swirl, and the tension (at least here in Colorado), mounts, let’s examine both sides of the Patrick Roy retirement issue.
As the season winds down (much too quickly for some of us – thanks, Minnesota), I’m curious about some things, such as what happens on this site in the “off-season”. I also have some genral questions about people’s attitudes regarding some of the stuff that occurs here on a fairly regular basis.
Everyday it gets more and more evident that the CBA will not be resolved by 2004. Well, even for us hockey fans its not the end of the world. The launch of the new “World Hockey Association” is scheduled for the 2004-05 season, just in time for NHL work stoppage.
Just want to take a break from this playoff posturing and try something different. My idea: the top regular season moments for your team. May not be the world’s most exciting venture, but it should be good to see everyone’s take on it.
Devils accuse a cheap slap shot? Was it!?
Devils point finger at ref, refs ruining the game?
….auvoir Patrick Roy? Should he go, yes…no? If so who will be the replacement?
Rangers quiet in coach hunt.
Hurricane Sergei coming?
Will it be Wesleaf or Wesleygone?
A broken Wing leaving this summer.
Hamrlik a goner?
And…..Martin Brodeur IS the devil himself!
Jagr going to the desert?
Felix the Cat leaves Monarchy?
Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal gets goofy!
So The Leafs lost….But us fans and the Leafs will have to suck it up, see ya’s next year with our next run at ending 1967…..
How could the losers of round one react after Round One elimination?
Round Two Discussions….but no predictions from me.
The Philadelphia Flyers have defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games in the opening round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs!!
No blaming Cujo for loss
Lightning dump Caps, even all-time record
On the radar screen: Alexander Mogilny, Bob Goodenow, the Florida sports scene, Jaromir Jagr’s new math, “Nick & Doug” and more.
