loved:
Ron Hextall- he's why I love hockey, started playing hockey, I wore 27 in college and any team i play on

The LOD line

Garth Snow-I use his pro return sticks still

Eric Desjardins


Hated:
therien
vandermeer(2nd time around)
modry
oates
tibbets
ranheim
jody hull (roger's cabana boy)


beezer-i met him at the carnival, he is shorter than me with skates on(i'm 5'9") i knew we were screwed

Knuble-when he's attempting to stick handle, I'm ok with him in front of the net tipping stuff in or rebound goals, the longer the has the puck on his stick the more I dislike him

Depends a bit on whether we are talking about as players or as people.

Like:
Eric Lindros. A great player and fantastic to watch. Unfortunately it's always the question of what if with him. But basically he made me a Flyers fan and for that I have to thank him.
Bobby Clarke. The ultimate working class hockey player. A fantastic player and leader. And all in spite of diabetes.
Ron Hextall. Every team needs a lunatic between the pipes.
Bernie Parent. One of the best goalies ever. Great to watch him in the old standup style.
Mike Richards. He is just great and could become the next Bobby Clarke. The ultimate fit for this sports club.

Dislike:
Mike York. Lazy ****ing bum.
Steve Downie. Sorry, but what has he ever really done for us?
Steve Eminger. Total bust, I still can't get over that game in Ottawa where he tripped over himself twice, both in crucial situations.
Mike Rathje and Derian Hatcher in combination. Too slow. Can probably be attributed to Clarkie signing those two pylons, but can't they just retire and stop burning a hole into the teams wallet?

Didn't the team pretty much screw him by not scoring any goals? If I remember those playoffs clearly he had a GAA under 2.00 or something, but the team just couldn't score.

Never liked Peter White, I remember getting pissed when I was like 12 because they had a line of people signing my jersey and when I told him he didn't have to sign it, he thought I was kidding.

John LeClair, I think just cause everyone else loved him, and I didn't see him as much more then a heavy shot who Lindros made rich.

Jiri Dopita overhyped?

Liked:
Roenick was my favorite, after him and excluding the obvious.
Boucher
Comrie (wasn't here long but moving him for Sean Burke?)
PJ Stock
Sharp (good to see him doing well)

Rod Brind' Amour--Probably my favorite Flyer of all time. Should have traded Lindros to Carolina instead.
Mike Richards
Jeff Carter
Simon Gagne
Kieth Primeau
Sami Kapanen--ultimate team guy. he knew his offensive skills were declining, but he would do anything to help the team win. I am convinced if he was needed he would have played goal

disliked
Billy Tibbets( not even debatable. far and away easily. this ******* didnt deserve to wear a flyer sweater)

Ulf Samuelsson- another ******* but for different reasons

Mike York

Have to disagree with you on LeClair.....he scored 40 goals in a season largely playing without Lindros and was still a 25 goal scorer without him and with all the back problems. Its the same as the Gagne/Forsberg argument....Playing with a superstar will make you BETTER, but it doesnt mean you arent a very good player without them.

Liked
Recchi - all time favorite flyer
Desjardin - underrated by the rest of the league but was huge for our team during his entire tenure as a flyer
Roenick - loved his playing style, quick, gritty and good overall player
Amonte - loved him in chicago sad he didnt stick here for long
LeClair - scored goals and lots of them enough said
Kapanen - his crawling back to the bench after the tucker hit in playoffs just shows how much of a determined individual he was loved watching him play
Suprimeau
Carter, Richards, Coburn etc - has been a joy to watch all of these young players blossom into bonified NHLers cant wait to see what the future holds

Disliked
Kyle Calder - just never lived up to his ability here was a disappointment
Billy Tibbetts - never deserved to put on a flyers jersey
Steve Downie - has no respect for the game would have loved if he stayed and got his act together but it doesnt look like thats going to happen

Nope, his slowness killed his edge because he couldnt really catch up to anyone to show off his edge.
