I'd like Giroux to be a lifer.

Mike Richards- oops, they traded him to a team which immediately won the Stanley Cup. Gosh.

Hands down I would have to say Marty. Not only did we, and many other teams, pass on him in the draft, having a consistent record-setting goalie would be the best thing to happen to this team since he was drafted. Followed by Yzerman - great leader, player, and GM.
Yeah i know Roy played for 2 teams.
Probably would of gone with Lidstrom then. He could control a game all by himself.
Probably not physical enough for some around here tho

A fully fit Eric Lindros... up until 1999 he was 3rd all time behind Gretzky and Lemieux in PPG. And he had the best fight win % in NHL history, and the biggest hitter in the NHL, he was the complete package when fit.

EDIT 8-01-12

I wasn't trying to say just pick guys who only played for one team throughout their career, because the list would be too short. That IS the general idea of what I was getting at though.

Maybe this will clear it up:

Pick a player who never left their one and only team = Bulls eye!!

Pick a player who maybe left at the tail end of their career to try and win a Cup (Ray Bourque) = Still A Lifer

Pick a player who spent a few years with one team and then went to another for the rest of their career = Ehhh I don't think so, wrong idea there.

Pick a player who is a career journeyman = No, just no.

Pick a player who isn't classified as a "lifer" but you WISH they would have spent their entire career playing for the Flyers (W. Gretzky, K. Primeau) = All you gotta do is say so.

The Great One should not apply to this then, having played on 4 teams...

King Henrik would have at least a cup by now if he wasn't on such a turrible NY team (although they are doing better in recent years.

I vote him.

If not then I would have kept my man the Wrecking Ball Mark Recchi.

You can say Gretzky, wishing he was a part of the Flyers for his entire career. It's fun to think about, since this post is just for entertainment, but what's the fun in naming the greatest player of all time? That's a no brainer. Or what's the fun in saying Giroux, I mean of course we want him to be on our team forever (as long as he keeps up the good work), but let's think outside the box is all, like the previous posts about Lundqvist, or Brodeur.

Just sayin, let's use our imaginations here!!!!!!

I like the previous post about Iginla though, think I'm leaning toward that one as my favorite.

The thread was enjoyable until you changed the rules (not that anyone was listening.)

A smaller list of actual lifers (Ray Bourque is not a lifer, sorry) would be more entertaining, thought provoking, and make you double check if players you believed stayed in one place their careers actually did.

You opened the flood gates for people to simply name players they like.
