Jared Ross? Luca Sbisa?

Luca Sbisa is an 18 year old rookie who’s looked great. Don’t even know how I know that considering Hockey is below the following on my sports priority lists:

1.) Horse Racing 2.) Boxing 3.) MMA is gaining ground

Love the Flyers, but little else about hockey.

And I couldn’t be more disappointed that they didn’t keep that Jimmy Dowd. One time I went to a game Mike Gill, and Jimmy Dowd fought about 4 guys on another team. Jimmy Dowd is an animal and still in great shape. He was a BLAST to watch. The game will miss Jimmy Dowd.

That Jim Dowd stinks, I am glad he is gone.
