Of active past Flyers, who would you love to still have on the team?

No doubt I want Mike back in a more limited role than the one he lef, but definitely on the PP and in key situations when you need
The second player I thought of is a favorite here I see: Sharp... I want him to see what he can do in O&B with a coach that may welcome him in the system.
I also would want my 'Dog Park Buddy' back: Seidenberg... He'd fit in well, now that he has matured more and honed his skills.
I'd welcome Umberger back with a more favorable cap hit and Umberger back with a better on-ice average -- meaning less injuries -- and Jagr back... also with less injuries. Gagne with a better Cap would be sweet... And I wouldn't mind Kapinen back for one last twilight season.
I echo that I would have said Rusty 'the Flyers Killer' if Homer hadn't already taken care of that.
And we cannot forget 'Super' Stevie Eminger.... Okay... that was 100% a joke.
As for Richards and Carter: while I am 100% in love of what Homer got for them, I would love their talent... but I cannot see their fitting in an longer considering the circumstances... Maybe after time, later on in their careers, they could come back.
... And yes, Sbisa for another go could be nice.
A couple of seasons back would have had Recchi there along with Knuble at the top... and of course Brindy, when he still had gas in the tank.
I know... much too many... sorry. haha
I was thinking about Knuble the other day and I agree, I think this lockout is the end of the line for him. He didn't have a team after his years with the Caps so he's likely done.
As for Carter and Richards, I would be shocked if either of them wanted to come back at any time, and I doubt Snider would take them back.
