Call it the state of the team address with a rally cry thrown in. Flyers owner and chairman Ed Snider addressed the media on Saturday during the second day of training camp.
Snider supplied a vote of confidence for the team that has been assembled and in Ron Hextall and Dave Hakstol while stating his expectations for the team this season. It shouldn't be surprising at all that Snider expects big things.
"I have a lot of faith in Ron Hextall who has a lot of faith in Hakstol," Snider said. "Quite frankly, I'm looking for big things. I think we're going to turn this team around, I think we're going to be a playoff team this year."
