Departing an organization via the expansion draft is an odd thing. A player's team didn't choose to send him packing per se. They also didn't protect you, but they literally have a whole list of guys they didn't protect.
It's not exactly a knock on your skill or the way a team sees you in their longterm plans.
So it's no surprise Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had kind words for the team and city he now departs.
The Vegas Golden Knights selected Bellemare to be one of their original players on Wednesday. He took time out of his day today to thank the Flyers and their fans.
He posted a photo of himself skating in the orange and black with a big smile on his face with the following caption:
You never know what life can bring you, thats why I try to enjoy every second of it! This is a perfect picture to represent my awesome time as a Flyer, playing with great teammates, for this unbelievable organisation and even more unbelievable fans!!!
Thanks for the love and support Philly
Flyers fans will likely wish him the best of luck on his new squad.
Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.
The newest member of the Eagles linebacking crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.
If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:
When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.
It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.
His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]
Not only did the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl last month, but their fans were also treated to an encouraging site on Monday morning: Carson Wentz throwing a football.
Wentz shared some video to his Instagram story in which you can see him throwing a football from multiple angles while wearing a brace on his knee.
Back in January before the Super Bowl, the Eagles quarterback revealed that the knee injury he suffered in December was worse than originally thought. He tore his left LCL in addition to his ACL but he said then that he hoped to be back for Week 1.
"My goal is to be ready for Week 1," Wentz said. "I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready. And I'm very confident in that."
"I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury — I 100 percent believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, with no looking back."
No reason to believe any of that has changed over the last month and a half and it sure looks like he's progressing.
