The Flyers have become a national embarrassment to the city and the sporting public here.
They have now won two straight, and thanks the lord for that.
But with two 10-game losing streaks this season, a first in NHL history that cost Alain Vigneault his job, the Comcast Corp., which owns the team, has to finally take the blame and sell the team for any other future success in the NHL.
Profits, not wins on the ice, is the goal of this telecommunications conglomerate that has put the Flyers on the back burner.
And that’s evident to all who have com to games and witnessed this substandard product on TV.
As long as they keep making money with this team, selling might not happen anytime soon, but having ownership that cares about hockey success much more than this group it will be hard to see the team getting better in the future.
