– Greg W. twittered earlier today with a link to a blog post regarding a very controversial question a team allegedly asked a prospect during the interview portion of the scouting combine. While the question may have been asked to judge the maturity of the prospect based on his response, there are other, better ways to determine maturity than questioning the prospect’s sexuality. In addition, it doesn’t send a good message to the current players and the league if the team is trying to judge a player by his sexuality. I can’t wait to see what – if any – feedback the league gives on this.
– Moving on, news reports out of Philly indicate the Flyers and Ray Emery have agreed to a 1-year / $1.5 million deal. Such a deal ends the Marty Biron era in Philly. The Philly media also indicates that Marty is allegedly looking for the mythical 5/$25 deal that we all know and love. Now I adore Marty as much as the next person, but there is no way that Marty is worth that much money for that length of time.
It seems fitting that any post talking about both Marty and Ray Emery deserves this video to be included, right?
At least with Emery potentially entering the league again we’ll hear the “Emmmmmm-ry, Emmmmmm-ry” chants again echoing from HSBC Arena. (And part of me kind of would like to see an Emery/Miller fight. Emery may have size and temper, but I think Miller could cut a bitch and swing a blocker when needed. Heh.)
