Your wunderkind is now 20 years old and shows no sign of making people forget Ron Francis, to whom Flyer fans often compare him. You named 16 forwards who played for the Flyers in the last 38 years, only one who was a superstar (Lindros); Forsberg had passed his prime in '05-'06. Not too impressive when you figure that some 150+ forwards played for the team during that time.
