Ed Snider On The Slumping Philadelphia Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Flyers co-founder Ed Snider is miffed by his team's lack of secondary scoring.

"Never seen anything like it in all the years I've been in hockey," Snider said in a phone interview from his Montecito, Calif., home on Monday afternoon. "Even when we were an expansion team" in 1967-68, "somebody chipped in here and there."...

"All teams are having cap problems. We'll find a way to work around it," said Snider, whose team finished 42-30-10 last season. "In the meantime, that's not the issue. The issue is that we have pretty much the same team as last year, and we're not performing. We're hoping they can turn it around. We have two of the best forwards in the league, but two players can't turn around a team. What's going on with everybody else? What's going on with [Sean] Couturier, [Matt] Read, Simmonds, and the other guys? They should be chipping in with some goals. It's weird. I'm not going to give up on those guys. Even [Vinny] Lecavalier got 20 goals last year. What happened?"
