2017 Lady Byng Winner Johnny Gaudreau Says ‘It Would Be Sweet’ To Play For The Flyers
CBS Philly – Johnny Gaudreau, aka Johnny Hockey, grew up a Flyers fan and would like to play in Philly again, someday.
“Yeah it’d be sweet,” Gaudreau told the 94WIP Morning Show when asked about potentially playing for the Flyers.
“I’ve got a ton of family here, all my friends — I actually have a wedding this week here in South Jersey. All my friends come back here, all my good friends, and kids that I’ve played with my whole life are from South Jersey. So, it would be sweet to play here some day. You know you never know in sports, but it’s a lot of support back here in South Jersey and the Philly area.”

MY GOD could you imagine Connor going on radio station and saying it ‘would be sweet’ to play for the Leafs? Christ that’s a terrible look for both Johnny and Calgary. This comes not even one year after contract negotiations with Calgary went completely sour and led to a holdout which inevitably led to getting an 11th hour deal done after little Johnny No Penalties thoroughly obliterated the World Cup. Think it was around the same time that Calgary realized their elite blue line would be useless if nobody on the team could score a fucking goal, so they signed him until 2021-22 which means in only five more years he can fulfill his sweet dream and play for the Flyers.
