As soon as I declared the Flyers my pre-season pick to take the Eastern Conference this year they started falling apart.
Peter Forsberg, Derian Hatcher and now Sami Kapanen are already out and the pre-season games haven’t even started yet. Minor surgery for Forsberg, and Kapanen and a sprain for Hatcher. Will they be ready to go by the 1st game? Will they be 100%? Bobby Clarke is taking no chances.
In attempt to beef up the team, Clarke signed forward Brian Savage. Word to the wise Bobby, don’t expect anything from Brian Savage.
Habs fans remember “Mr.October” well, producing a lucky streak of goals early in the season and then falling off the map. Savage was just that, savagely lame. A journeyman for a reason, he can’t get the job done.
