I admit, I had to use Google to find out who that was. The question now is how will the league find a way to make sure he ends up in Pittsburgh?

Granted, the Flyers management strategy of "throw money at it" hasn't worked out nearly as well as "tank hard until we get Mario Lemieux, and then once he retires stink for several more years until the league hands us another superstar on a silver platter and the state builds us a new arena because we threatened to move to Kansas City".
I was trying to figure out some clever way to work in the Pengins' 0-39-3 record in Philadelphia between 1974 and 1989, but couldn't come up with anything.
