I assume the Legion of Doom will be united.

Has anybody heard if Messier or Gretzky are in it?

Can LeClair still play? Isn't his back in bad shape?

I am sure he can handle a couple of vanity laps around the ice for an alumni game, I doubt it will be all that intense...

It's Flyers-Rangers! What if Beukeboom's back out there against Lindros? It's gonna be nuts.

Bob Gibson was one of the ultimate competitors of all time. Nasty pitcher with the Cardinals in the 1960s, Hall of Famer. His last pitch in the majors turned out to be a grand slam by an obscure player with a unique name of Pete LaCock.

Fast forward a few years, Gibson played in an old-timers game and clocked LaCock. Afterwards, when LaCock inquired, Gibson told him it was payback.

A precedent has been set!

Speaking of The WC Alumni Game, STHs were sent letters in which we were informed that the Winter Classic Package included the Alumni Game and Phantoms AHL game... I assume that they are not free perks and are priced. If they have prices I imagine I'll sell off the added games since one pair of frozen fannies is sufficient for us.

I wasn't thrilled with the must buy part of it and don't really know if selling them is going to go over like a lead balloon or be a profit making situation... I would rather have had an option to buy them.

Also we were informed that the 'extra' game in our Full STH package that we are paying for but will be replaced by the Winter Classic Game cannot be applied in part to the WC and will be automatically rolled over to the Playoff Deposit when due... if due and they make the Postseason... They allude to a refund being possible if we call a supplied number -- ("For information on obtaining a refund, please contact Flyers Customer Service at 2l5-2l8-4F AN (4326)." -- But I'm sure the refund would be given after the final STH payments are made... which should be around the time of the PO Deposit IIRC.

I wonder if my selection for the WC would also be my selection for the other two games, or if I can select different cost levels for them... Seems that the Organization can never make it easy in these matters. haha... In any case, I'm just glad to have the WC option and will worry about the rest later when i comes up with the details.

I actually like that last concept jersey at he bottom... White Briere... but I think it is all mere baseless fun on heir part and should all be taken FWIW.

That said... their idea for the crest is no a bad one, and if any of their ideas were to fly, that might be the one. I could certainly live with it.

I thought a small bridge was gapped when he was inducted into the flyers hall of fame? He should be playing in this game, he was the most important flyer for a decade, and imo was the most dominant player in the nhl at one point while playing for the flyers.

Lindros is one of the biggest "what if's" in hockey, and will always be a flyer in my eyes.

What did we honour him for a few years ago then when he made the video that was shown prior to a game? Was it about the ending of the spectrum?

I guess I should have not just assumed.

It was the ending of the Spectrum. The Flyers invited all of the former Captains to the ceremony but IIRC Lindros had a funeral to attend on that date and could not attend. Some speculate that he just used that as an excuse to not come. But I see no fault in what he did.

I do remember him speaking very well about the fans and playing in the spectrum now that I think of it...seemed genuine too.

To keep the facts correct it was not a funeral but a commemorative ceremony for a friend's close relative IIRC... FWIW.

Yes, it was the mother of a close friend who passed away.

I thought it was the 'mother' of a 'close' friend... but not certain enough to say it; thanks.

BTW: MSE... you are a man of lightening speed.
