1 Conditioning: Last fall, Ed Snider called it the worst training camp he'd seen in his 46 seasons as team owner. Peter Laviolette was fired three games into the regular season when the Flyers broke out of the gate winless. This time, coach Craig Berube said he kept in touch with every player over the summer, asked a few to shed body fat, and vows his team will be in top physical shape. 2 Vinny Lecavalier: Both the Flyers and veteran forward Vinny Lecavalier say there are no hard feelings after a trying offseason.

KIMMO TIMONEN has skated in five Winter Olympics, won four Olympic medals. He has been named to an NHL All-Star team five times. He has been tabbed as the Flyers' top defenseman five times, second only to Eric Desjardins. In his 15-year NHL career, Timonen has earned a staggering $58,350,000 in salary. He has a beautiful wife, a hockey-loving son and two adoring daughters. Yet, even though the scrappy, 10th-round draft pick has gotten way more out of hockey than he ever could have dreamed as a boy in Finland, Timonen is still not ready to walk away from the game.

Ed Snider, looking trim and fit and confirming he is cancer-free after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, admitted Saturday that patience has not been his best virtue. The Flyers' chairman said new general manager Ron Hextall will help change that. "I think Ron has established a philosophy that is probably long overdue," Snider said after watching the first day of Flyers' rookie camp in Voorhees. "I have probably been a little too anxious to win another Cup. I was very patient when I was young, when we built the winners.

Handcuffed by salary-cap woes he inherited, new Flyers general manager Ron Hextall was unable to upgrade the team in the offseason. Hextall isn't worried. The former standout goaltender believes he has a solid nucleus that features center Claude Giroux, right winger Wayne Simmonds, and goalie Steve Mason. He thinks a year of maturity will help the younger players make major strides, and says having their first training camp under coach Craig Berube will help the Flyers get off to a better start than last year.

"Looking at it, it is a thing of the past. Like Ron Hextall said, he wishes he had the surgery when he was playing. Moving forward, it is not going to hinder me or affect me. It is going to be good.
