Sixers-The process is just about complete. Sprinkle in a big time FA which we can easily afford and Philly may run the East for 10 years.
Phillies-One of the best minors in the league. And a crap ton of money. Machado, Trout or Harper should be a Phillie before long.
Flyers-Don't really care much but Hextall is in place to do some good things. Drafting and keeping our young guys is a new sentiment here and they are pretty stocked up. Future is bright though.
Eagles-Actually have a QB worth building around. And that's paramount. If Howie and Douglas can hit on a couple drafts this team can be good for a decade.
It's not that bleak. It's actually in line for a Philly sports renaissance.
Sixers and Phillies have a ton of young talent. And the next few drafts are very important for the Eagles. The foundation is there.
I know you guys aren't Flyers guys but they're righ up there in terms of prospects and talent in the system. I'd even argue they're probably ahead of the Phillies and Sixers at this point because nearly all of their bad contracts are gone (coughmacdonaldcough) and they're at the point where holes are starting to open up for the prospects they've been developing. Next year is going to be pivotal for the Flyers and a couple of top end offensive prospects in this next draft could make the Flyers very good for a very long time.
Flyers are definitely further along than the Phillies and Sixers. First and foremost, the Sixers are dependent on a big man that can't stay healthy. They have some nice pieces, but the Flyers have more sure-things in addition to a great prospect list.
As a Leafs fan, I'm absurdly excited right now.
Matthews looks like the generational talent that Leafs fans thought he'd be. But even the most optimistic fans didn't expect him to be this good. 39 goals with 4 games to play.
Nylander is filthy. So is Marner.
The fact that the Leafs went from worst to potentially being a dangerous playoff team in one season is incredible. All because they played the young guys. _________________
