While I was watching the Flyers’ pre-game show, it was noted that Rod Brind’Amour was asked to give the captain’s “C” to another player: Staal. It was also stated that it is believed that a trade to Chicago might be a possibility for Roddy.
I assert that you should bring him back to wear the orange and black. Why? You have a lot of young players, some of whom need a bit of discipline and work-ethic. Don’t get me wrong, they have made a lot of strides since the coaching change, but they need an experienced forward that will model the attributes necessary for a successful hockey team. He was and still is a class-act, has always exhibited a strong desire to succeed and give all he has, still has steam left in the engine, and he deserves this opportunity.
RT…a fan since she was a wee little lass and especially since her first game, at the age of 12: Flyers vs. Nordiques, and yes, Bobby Clarke was still a year or two away from retiring.
