Vinny Prospal,
His 97 AHL season was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. I went to almost every phantoms game that year. He was kinda string bean like then, odd stride, but just uncanny vision. Reminds me of leino actually. The crappy thing is Therien broke his wrist in practice so he didn't make it past the pens series that year.

Scotty Upshal,
Great energy, drove mike green nuts during the playoffs. I'd still take him over carcillo, can you imagine gagne/richards/upshall instead of carcillo. The guy almost cried at the airport leaving philly.

As for Skalde it was more because of knowing him that I was excited and was hoping he would get a chance to contribute at the NHL level.

The OP wasn't looking for guys who we were sure would be the hall of fame, just guys we liked who had short stints. He is a guy I liked that had a short stint. He's a pretty good coach now too.
Certainly Skalde would fit the bill for having a short stint before being traded. How does Greig fit into that description when he played 5 seasons for the organization?

My favourite Upshall game was vs Boston when he drove Chara insane, and then scored the gamewinner with a Forsberg move. He was on Chara every shift, and I think Chara took a few penalties trying to get rid of him. Also the birth of the magic "9's".

Definitely Upshall. I liked Amonte too when he was here.

Going way back to 85, Todd Bergen looked like he was going to be a star but gave up hockey...odd story...

Also in 88, I remember we had acquired Paul Lawless who had some real skill but he also didn't stick very long with the team...

Markov, guy was awesome.

Tony Amonte is a good one, I forgot he was here for a little bit.

Markov, Upshall, Sharp, Marty Murray, Chris McAllister

the Fedoruk-Murray-McAllister line was possibly the favorite of my flyers history. Small gritty guy who played his tail off was a victim of liberties of other players, so put Fridge and Big Mac on his flanks.

I'd say Mike Maneluk, Danny Markov, and Scottie Upshall. I'd love to see how Upshall would play while coached by Lava.

I was going to say Sharp but from what I've read, Sharp wanted to be traded.

Jason Smith. Should have kept him for one more year.

I remember that game. Chara was going crazy over this guy a foot shorter than him, I remember Scottie challenged him to fight and Chara skated away, too (probably because he didn't want to get arrested on murder charged, but still). I talk about that game with everyone random Flyers fan I meet at bars and such when I explain my insane man crush for Upshall.

I think you may have your stories mixed up, though. I'm not sure if he did the Forsberg move in that game, but in his first game as a Flyer after being traded for Forsberg he won the game with the Forsberg move on a breakaway in the 3rd (an absolutely sick story).

The most obvious answer of recent teams has to be Danny Markov. Flyers fans just adored him. It was pretty much a match made in heaven. I know the guy is one of my favorite players to ever put on the sweater which is a bit crazy considering how shortly he was here.

It really is a shame that he couldn't have stuck around

Scotties goal using the forsberg move is still my favourite flyers goal of all time.

Gotta say, i really liked Vaananan(sp) and metropolit when they were here too. Prospal and that play-off run was pretty spectacular too.

Markov is the first name to pop in most people's minds.

Langkow is another guy, though he turned directly into Jeff Carter and partially turned into Chris Pronger.

I loved Justin Williams as well.

You may be right, and it's very possible I combined the two into one wicked game in my mind! If it was two separate games, then those are my two favourite Upshall games!

I also loved Markov and Timander.

I wish the Flyers had held onto Downie, but it was far better for him to go elsewhere. Kukkonen as well, but that may be more disgust with how badly he got screwed over by the coaching staff than being a fan of his play.

It is a shame that Thor isn't getting more love in this thread.

The man literally played his balls off for our fan base.

Did you read the whole OP? It was in english. Greig played 30 games for the Flyers so he fits under the second sentence (the unbolded one that is directly below the first one) of a guy who "never panned out." Surely someone like yourself who bases opinions solely on hockeydatabase.com can look up that he was a first round draft pick. First round picks are supposed to make it. I can explain how the draft works if you like. He played 30 games for the Flyers. We then can conclude that he was a guy who never panned out for the Flyers, and I liked him and so I mentioned his name on a forum thread asking for the names of guys who had short stinks with the Flyers that we liked that never panned out or were traded. Is that plain enough for you or should I break out some puppets and crayons?

Who buddy, cut the attitude - pelts actually has a point. The title of the thread is asking to list players who had short stints... its a bit ridiculous to include a guy that was in the organization for 5 years as someone who had a short stint.

Mark Recchi. Considering the guy has been playing since about 1763, his stint here was relatively short.
