Pretty impressive stable of subsidiaries.

What happened to the club risqué comments ??
Ed Snider….This week’s Nova!
Ed Snider was possibly Phillies greatest sports person. He knew years before anyone else that this city could not only support an NHL team, but thrive with one, and Philly is now a top 5 NHL market. He brought the NHL to Philadelphia in the original expansion year and it has been the most successful of the original expansion teams. They may not have the most Cups, but the game grew in this city like in no other. Rinks popped up along with leagues all over the city, most of which are still functioning today. Ed Snider owned the team since day one, and will truly be missed by all of the Philly Sports World.
A lot of them rinks are still operating because the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation donated millions of dollars to renovate them.
Every public rink in the city offers free ice skating thanks to the ESYHF.
