the poconos mountains. by the time phillies and padres play today home open ter day most of the rain will be out of here. there is a good chance we might see a few peaks of sunshine with mostly cloudy skies. there is a very good chance it will be quite wind which wind gusts up to 30 miles an hour. by the time you go home about 58 degrees. you'll be getting ready for sunset and it will be breezy. showers to sunshine and then some rain in the morning, heavier rain on tuesday, and then once we get that rain out of here, it looks like a fantastic rest of the week, and mike and alex, by the time we get to sunday instead of the snow we are talking about last week we're talking about 07 degrees. that is more like it for springtime. >> 8:46. again, the sad news this morning, the chairman, founder of the philadelphia flyers, back in 1967, ed snyder has died at the age of 83.
8:47 am
steve keeley is near the wells fargo center, pretty famous statue over last couple of years, steve. >> reporter: yeah mike, i thought this within most fitting spot to talk about ed snyder because even though it came so early, in his tenure owning the flyers, never got to win another stanley cup, but this from 1974. i remember it well. i just talk about this moment on friday because we were all getting together, us media on the bus riding a long with the team. they said what does this compared to. nothing will ever compare to the crowds that came out for the first flyers stanley cup championship in the spring of 74. i remember seeing head line 2 million people, all around the city, independent hall, jfk stadium, all through broad street during the parade. we were just across the street inside the phillies stadium for opening day and coincidently, one of the members of the morning team there is keith jones who only
8:48 am
played two or three years to end his career with the flyers and he stuck around and said he is convinced ed snyder, as sick as he was, survived long enough to see the flyers make the playoffs, and then once they got in the playoffs he said okay i have done my job, i can see them through now. that is how he saw it, and boy he and al morganti who were close to ed snyder over this. this wasn't like sixers owner hard hoist comes to town to make a big announcement and then off, doesn't care as much. this was ed snyder's only business for the most part, he was a flyers owner. he knew to keep a business in business you had to put a good product to your customers, year after year after year. after he won those first two stanley cups he made sure that he could do anything in his power to win another stanley cup every year. there was in tanking years with the flyers. >> always trying to bring that cup back here.
8:49 am
steve, hang in there at xfinity live, steve martinez from 97.5 is here, mr. hockey himself. >> what is his legacy. howard eskin on it phone as well. everybody is here. >> it is a party. >> his legacy is simple to me. he is a owner here for 50 years. that doesn't happen very often. obviously he is a guy that wanted to win as much as the fans did. he connect with his fans because of that. as steve said he wanted to entertain the fans. he never wanted a team to come here and push flyers around. >> i was able to sit with him during that black hawks series, when they were this close. >> 2010. >> and that silent goal went in. >> i remember when they won eastern conference finals. i had him on the air after the game. he was over the moon about the fact that they were going back to play for the stanley cup. he cared. >> i think that is what everybody feels. they could feel his love, even in the statement his family released, they were saying
8:50 am
they were hoping wow survive to see flyers win just one more game because he would have been there. howard, i think people notice when they had that game when they cemented their role in the playoffs that he would have been here if he could have been here if he could have been. >> i just saw your tweet that says best owner in philly history. >> as far as i'm concern he is absolutely the best owner in philadelphia history. he had a love for the sport. it wasn't a business. some owner treat it as a business, some don't. some really have the passion and the love. unfortunately he could not come all season. i have stayed in touch. i have always called him ed. i said to him within time i said ed, i will not call you mr. snyder. i never told anybody to call me mr. snyder. people just started calling me mr. snyder. i'm alwaysing to go call you ed. i have men this guy for over 40 years. he was the most passionate person at that level, and
8:51 am
obviously i'll always call him owner. his title is chairman. the always call him owner. i know he was founder. i remember the day. he would do anything beyond trying to do things for the hockey team. some owners worry about finances and where i about money. ed, within the rules when there became a salary cap but with go over the rules outside of the team, and still, there were rules but he would spend to try to develop players. he would do everything he could but made ed beautiful as a person is his loyalty. you saw people with tough, guy we had our differences of opinion but 60 seconds later we were laughing and joking with one another. he would take care of all of his people. his loyalty is beyond anything. and the hockey rink s that he built, in this city for the youth and the ed snyder youth hockey foundation is amazing.
8:52 am
this guy just wanted to see people embrace things but he wanted to make it good for fans. if there was a player, former flyers player that ever had problems, outside of playing hockey or financially he would fine ways to give him jobs. that is why you see so many ex-players working for the flyers because ed embraced those people, and always had a loyalty for those people, and nobody can ever to touch that loyalty that he had for people. i loved the guy. i really loved the guy. >> jason, would you agree with that. >> echo what howard put up ed snyder's youth hockey foundation. big reason why hockey is as big as it is here, james van riemsdyk and others because they are in the nhl is because of the hockey he he grew in this area. he educated his fan base. big part of why hockey is so big this this area in philadelphia and why fans are so loyal to the product.
8:53 am
they connect with him. >> fans are saying we should do this for him, keep getting these rings and go all the way and do it for him. >> saturday was a very emotional day at the rink, lauren hard dedicated god bless america via a face time which was touching for people and people that work there were very moved by that. >> i think lauren knew and everybody knew that time, his death was imminent. jason, thanks for coming in. >> hour, thank you. we will see you later today. >> take care, guys. >> boy, sad news. >> we will take a quick break coming right back.
