Flyers owner Snider 'disappointed' season on hold

The rinks include classrooms and learning labs that provide year-round afterschool programming. Snider would like to expand the program into areas outside of Philadelphia like Chester and Allentown.

"I think through the years, you're going to see it become a much bigger program. Our goal is 10,000 kids," Snider said. "This is nothing to do with my profession. This has to do with my desire to help inner-city kids. I get such satisfaction when I get letters from kids and their parents and how much they've accomplished. I can't think of any other way that I could be more satisfied, except maybe another Cup."

It's hard to say if the Flyers, or any other team, will get a chance this season to play for the Stanley Cup.

"I sure hope so," Snider said.

Nutter said the city needs the Flyers to start playing again.

"Of course they do, they provide jobs and economic vitality," he said.
