Fans of a team have players they either like a lot or can't stand.

Who are the Flyer players you liked the most and disliked the most?

(obviously could name a bunch more that are on the team right now too)

Can't really think of any that i really disliked, since most of them didnt stay on the team longer than a season anyways.

Never had the hate for any of our players I see on these boards at times. Too many favs to list but some of the less obvious ones I always rooted for:

Pelle Eklund, highly under rated and an amazing skater and passer on what was an otherwise tough grinding team. Drove me nuts sometimes because he had a great shot he rarely used.

Shjon Podein, nobody worked harder, hustled ever second he was on the ice. Unfortunately had hands made of lead but couldn't help help but root for him.

Kevin Dineen. Gave it all on the ice. Unfortunate captain of one of the rare truely bad Flyers teams.

Keith Acton. Biggest pain in the a** I ever saw. Looked about 5' tall, never stopped yapping at anyone in a non Flyers jersey. Would have been my most hated player if he was a Ranger.

Long, probably incomplete list of the more obvious: Clarke, MacLeish, the Watsons, Parent, Howe, Kerr, Tocchet, Sinisalo, Brown, Lindros, Brind'Amour, LeClair, Recchi, Poulin, Desjardins, Hextall, Leach...

Not in this order but I hated these guys.

Robert Esche - stupid helmet, huge rebounds and a whiney attitude when he didn't start.

Sean Burke - beat the living crap out of his wife - enough said.

Billy Tibbets - true dirtbag.

Steve Downie - Pretty good player but has no respect for his opponent, teammates or the game and was a waste of a pick. I'm sure this one won't be too popular.

Favorites: Desjardins, Brind'Amour, Leclair, Kerr, Tocchet

Wow what a great list.

Dittoes on the whole bagshoot.

I do believe I'd add Kjell to it and perhaps even that Brad McCrimmon.

I cannot remember the last time I "hated" a player and don't know why anyone does.

Referees is a different story. Like this guy:

I don't have to much hate for any Flyer because you can't hate a player for not having a good skill set, but I do hate Chokemanic making me look like a idiot come playoff time in the Buffalo area.

No love for Propp?

One of my all time favourite flyers...



RIP Captain Video


I don't hate any players, but have hated a few trades.

The Adam Oats trade ranks high up there.
