Lacavalier, Emery, and Streit? The Flyers literally just annihilated the free market right in front of our faces. There’s blood everywhere.I give you the three newest Broad Street Bullies:
Cavy – Bolts captain, a number one draft pick, and one of hockey’s elite players of the last decade. No big deal.
Emery – Stanley Cup champ. Yes he didn’t play in the playoffs but the dude went 17-1 with a .922 save percentage and a goals against average under two! Black has never looked this sexy between the pipes.
Steit -A top five defender for the last five seasons. Captained the Islanders while they made a nice run at the end of the season to make the playoffs.
What was Phili lacking most last season? Goal-tending and defense. Add Emery and Streit, problem fixed. Throw in Cavy for good measure and you have yourself an eastern conference contender. The Flyer are fit and ready to unleash hell on any team that comes there way next year.
