What are Flyers fans saying about Jay O’Brien

They need to get rid of this ridiculous rule. Draft poorly and you get compensated for it

Jay O’Brien was too busy partying living the college life instead of focusing on hockey. The only reason he left PC was because he wasn’t allowed to Party as much as he wanted to. Comes back to bite him in the ass

What a waste of a 1st round pick from the Flyers. No wonder we are bottom feeders of the league now.
