One of my favorite Simpsons quotes is a classic regarding Krusty's profligacy.
"You took all your money...and bet against the Harlem Globetrotters?!"
"I thought the Generals were due!"
Certainly many Philadelphia Flyers fans thought coach Dave Hakstol was being just as foolish by keeping R.J. Umberger in the lineup.
Coming off a season in which he only scored 15 points, Umberger's lack of offense grew into a goal-less streak of epic proportions. Thankfully, there's a little more good humor after Umberger broke his 50-game goal drought last Thursday night against the Buffalo Sabres.
But how did we get to this point? How could Umberger go so long without scoring, and moreover how he could keep his spot in the lineup while being so unproductive?
