This is, of course, the closest Philadelphia will get to the Stanley Cup, unless Alain Vigneult can pull off a miracle next season turn the Flyers into the SURPRISE of the season.
Kyle wrote this recently about Craig Berube being honored at Xfinity Live by Flyers alumni:
What to do? Follow in the footsteps of the great Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, Kimmo Timonen, John Stevens and every other sorry sack who had to go elsewhere to actually win something. Berube being fired during an ostensibly progressive era where (LOL!) Ron Hextall, Paul Holmgren and Bobby Clarke were the Flyers’ top three hockey ops guys only to return a few years later to be celebrated for sowing his wild oats outside the castle is so delicious if not for the sadness it dredges up thanks to the realization we long for the days the team actually had an owner who cared just enough not to win in 40 years.
Let’s go Flyers. Let’s get some fucking jam back in the building.
I am told that Berube lived in New Hope for a few decades and still has friends in the area.
