Flyers Tortorella knew Harts days were numbered

When Carter Hart was given an opportunity to step away from the Philadelphia Flyers mere days before the hockey world was given the news regarding the Hockey Canada scandal, many believed they knew what was happening before it was announced.

It would appear that almost immediately Flyers head coach John Tortorella knew that his number one goaltender would be gone, and today, the club admitted it. Have a look:

Torts confirmed what most already knew or pieces together. The Flyers were prepared for the loss of Carter Hart.

They figured at some point he would be gone.

Today the Flyers admitted it


Although the masses are uncertain as to whether Hart and his codefendants will ever have an opportunity to play again in the National Hockey League, chances do seem bleak as the proceedings will not take place until at least 2025, at which point it is known that many of the implicated will have become free agents by then.

As a fan, it is hard to imagine that you will ever see Hart play again, which for Flyers fans is a disappointment in itself as he had shown flashes of brilliance during his young career. If you're a Flyers fan, you should do your best to get behind Samuel Ersson and Ivan Fedotov, as they may be the future between the pipes for years to come.
