HOW THE SPECTER OF ED SNIDER IS STILL AFFECTING THE FLYERS!

Says the New York Times:

Ed Snider’s old penthouse office at Wells Fargo Center has been turned into a conference room, as if the work of the illustrious businessman who owned Flyers will need to be done by many.

“It seems so much bigger now,” said Dave Scott, now the chairman and chief executive of Comcast Spectacor and the governor of the Flyers.

Scott, 65, was referring to the size of the room, but he could have been talking about the challenge of the job he inherited from Snider, who died at 83 in April 2016.

Snider looms everywhere:

A banner with his signature and “A Flyer Forever” hangs above their practice rink, and a statue of him stands outside Wells Fargo Center.

Scott has been refreshing the 22-year-old arena and updating the team’s image — he had a big hand in creating Gritty, the Flyers’ popular new mascot — but he also has been heavily involved recently in shaping the product on the ice for the first time as an owner.
