Puck Daddy, Broad Street Hockey, and PSD have already lambasted the concept, which includes plans to potentially make comic books, books, movies, etc. Here's a thought- sell the product, you know, ice hockey. It's a good sport.
The Flyers' guardian, creatively named… wait for it… The Flyer, is a punishing warrior of Broad Street, a master of telekinesis, and controls the mind with a granite chin. Right, exactly what I was thinking too.
Comic book legend Stan Lee is designing the project, for a large payday, no doubt. The "Guardians" will first do battle during the NHL All-Star Game on Versus. Can you feel the excitement?

Here's my idea: Screw The Flyer, let's have The Carts represent us. He's a cowboy hat wearin', courtside sittin', bro icing bleached blonde Canadian boy with a deadly wrist shot who summers at the jersey shore, protecting us from the evil ways of of reaching your potential and only struggles to get it up when Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals are on the line. That's his kryptonite- playoffs.
Or Bobby Clarke. Yeah, Bobby Clarke would have been a better choice. T-shirts already made.
