The Flyers debuted their new web series, Flight Plan, this week. The first episode took us inside the draft war room, where a grab bag of former players and scouts debated over who should be the team’s top pick. Several readers noted that the discussion was, well, exactly what you would expect from the Flyers:
You can’t help but think of the scene in Moneyball where Billy Beane tries to explain his new philosophy to a bunch of lifers stuck in their ways. And the rudimentary observations offered up by Flyers scouts were not unlike the antiquated arguments put forth by their peers in the hit movie. So, here now are the two scenes spliced together. Enjoy.
