We all knew Scottie Upshall loved Philadelphia. Most of Philadelphia seemed to love him too, for some reason I still don't completely understand. I mean, sure, I liked him as a player and he seemed like a good dude and everything, but with the way people still clamor for his return, you'd think he was Rod Brind'Amour or something.
In any event, Upshall loved it here. He cried when he left. Apparently, he can't "cut the cord." His Phoenix Coyotes are already in town ahead of Tuesday night's game at the Wells Fargo Center, and the ex-Flyer is meeting up with a few of his old teammates tonight in town.

And from Upshall's Twitter feed...

Tuesday will be Upshall's first game back in Philadelphia since the trade for Carcillo in March 2009.
