It does look rather controlled and with a purpose. The other thing I would say is that every one of the Flyer picks, as far as I can tell, are character guys. Every one of them. Character guys who have put the work in and are rewarded with contracts is about as good a way forward as I can imagine.
The back-to-back signings of Wisdom and Foerster to ELCs is telling us a lot. Fletcher really is serious about building from within. I am glad he is staying away from Silly Season. Gus Bus is reasonable and short-term. Building for the long-term counts and we don't need any more JVR-style contracts.
yesterday, some practical joker in one of those box trucks with the full-size video panels on the sides thought it would be funny to park right in front of my window and play a commercial for that stuff on a loop for several hours. was it you?
Absolutely. E.g., Myers - undrafted.
I said this in another thread, or maybe here I dunno, but I like that the Flyers drafted character guys. If the draft is a crapshoot, why not take guys with work ethic and character, it improves the odds that they become pros doesn't it?
