“Happy Holidays” Ed Snider

from Al Morganti at Philly Voice,

Like most NHL teams, the Flyers have churned out coaches and of the 13 since 1992, only six have been products of their organization.

One thing the Flyers have always done under Snider is admit a mistake and make the change, no matter what the cost. There was a time Snider did not want to use Russian (Soviet) players because of politics, but he realized that in order to have any real chance to win they had to change that policy.

Snider had to part with Clarke as a general manager.

Through it all, there is no questioning the effort and resources Snider has put into trying to win a championship. As a result, the Flyers remain one of the most recognizable and unique franchises in the world of sports and a crown jewel of the NHL.

And now, with Gostisbehere showing his stuff, and Sanheim and Konecny about to show their stuff for Team Canada in the World Junior Championships, maybe it’s a good time to say Happy Holidays to Ed Snider and the hockey fans in Philadelphia where the future looks pretty bright.
