Flyers that come to mind when you hear a number?
Saw this and though it was interesting. I only posted the number I found interesting.

Meh. The list is pretty much exactly who you would expect.

#17 is berube for me.
#6 fred arthur #3 wilson #29 cochran 
5Coburn
6Therien 8Recchi 10LeClair 16Clarke 17Brindy 18Richie 19Renberg 20Jones and Pronger 37Rico 44Niinima (don't know why, but it does) and Kimmo 88Lindros 97Roenik These are the names that come to my mind. They aren't the greatest players on the flyers with that number 
I got myself a system for memorizing short numbers by substituting them with players numbers.
E.g. one of my pin numbers is LeClairBriere My social security numbers TimonenHextall. 
I think of Recchi with 8 all the time. Him, Cal Ripken, and Jim Eisenreich. Dan McGillis with 3 for some reason, probably because I was little during that game he had his foot broken and still finished. I'll always think of Boucher with 33 because, again, I was real young when he lit the world on fire his first goround here. Gagne will always be 12 to me, and it still weirds me out seeing him in a Lightning jersey.
When all is said and done and we're on the next generation of Flyers, I'll probably associate a lot of numbers with this team just because of the way they've come together the last few years (and what they'll hopefully do).

Brindy is top of my list by a country mile. 
10LeClair
11Betts 88 10 will always forever be LeClair. 
Numbers 1, 4, 7, 16 & 31 are pretty obvious.
2  Howe, Yushkevich & Hatcher 3  Galley 5  Johnsson 6  Therien 8  Recchi 9  Zubrus 10  LeClair 11  Dineen 12  Gagne 13  Carcillo (?  nothing really rings a bell) 14  Laperriere 15  Dimitrakos (?) 17  Brind'Amour & Carter 18  Fedyk & Richards 19  MacLeish & Renberg 20  Jones & Pronger 21  Forsberg 22  Knuble 23  Svoboda 24  Kapanen 25  Podein & Primeau 26  Handzus 27  Hextall 28  Duchesne & Giroux 29  Otto 30  Soderstrom 32  Cechmanek (?) 33  Roussel & Boucher 34  Vanbiesbrouck 35  Bobrovsky 36  Powe (?) 37  Desjardins 41  Meszaros 42  Beranek 43  Biron 44  Timonen 45  Asham 48  Briere 49  Savage (shudder) 55  Markov 61  York (shudder) 77  Coffey 87  Brashear 88  Lindros 92  Tocchet 93  Zherdev 97  Roenick 
I stopped at 45, as the next several had me blanking out other than Briere at 48. As a frame of reference, I'm 27 years old...

They also have a similar size and stature out on the ice, and even a somewhat similar skating style. 42  Josef Beranek 43  Martin Biron 44  Kimmo Timonen 45  Arron Asham edit: ok, I cheated. I didn't have Powe originally at 36, only Modry...but after posting I scrolled up to CF88's list and saw Powe and puched myself in the face. How could Powe not jump to mind immediately when he is already one of my alltime favorite Flyers? Wtf. Anyway, he has to be on the list. 
Rats, forgot Asham.
I'm disappointed in your #40 choice, CBL. ;)

haha my yard shed lock combo# is Recchi/LeClair/Gagne ... So I am not alone in my madness, huh. :laugh: 
The only ones that stick out to me were Lindros, Rod the Bod and for some reason whenever I see 14 I always remember Craig MacTavish and his lidless head.

You mean you don't think Stefan Ruzicka? :sarcasm:
Edit: Not letting me quote, but I meant about seeing 14. 
88 definitely

How can some of you people not have Pat Falloon at #15?!?!?

Flyers fan since 1991, when I was 14 and living in New York

Whenever I see grilled cheese I think of Giroux.

87.
http://photos.upi.com/slideshow/lbox...INNHLICE.jpg For a while, 14 was considered a jinxed number, something like five players had been released, traded or demoted in about a year's time (early 90s). 
5 Michael Leighton as in Michael "5 hole" Leighton

Man... all these numbers... all these memories. Outside of Gagne, I still probably miss Desjardins the most.
