Want a Flyers jersey, but not sure which to get...

Okay....I've been a Flyers fan since I was old enough to actually comprehend hockey. I've never owned an authentic Flyers jersey before, mostly for financial reasons....but seeing as how it looks this this is a great time to do so, and I got some extra cash, I figure I should just do it now.

Problem is, I don't know whose to get. Roenick and Recchi are my two favorite players on the team, but with retirement creeping up on both, I want a jersey that will actually be a smart investment.

So, keeping in mind who would be the safest investment and I'd get the most money out of, which player's jersey do you think I should buy? Factors like retirement, length of contract, personality, and current/future importance to the team should be considered. Here is a list of the players I would actually seriously consider buying a jersey of:

-Jeremy Roenick
-Mark Recchi
-Keith Primeau
-Simon Gagne
-Sami Kapanen
-Kim Johnsson
-Joni Pitkanen

I recently (christmas) got a Pitkanen 3rd jersey, i wore it to 7 games this season and they went 1-6 i thought it was cursed but the 1 win was game 5 against the devils. I think that he is going to be here the longest (I thought the same with Boucher though). Gagne and Johnsson would also be good picks.

Your best bets are:

Gagne, Pitkanen, or Johnsson.

I own a Gagne jersey, bought his rookie year.

A friend of mine asked me the same thing, he was getting a jersey for Christmas. I told him go Johnsson or Pitkanen. Instead he went with Williams, that lasted about 3 weeks .... ouch.

I love Silent Bob, but I just don't like the idea of having a goalie's jersey.

You guys think Kapanen will be here for at least 3 more seasons? When does his contract expire?

I bought a blank Flyers vintage jersey about 3 months ago...

The next jersey I buy is a Tony Amonte home (black) jersey...He is my favorite player.

I don't think Roenick is going anywhere, he would be a safe bet.

Roenick's odds of retiring after this season are about 50/50....I'm not going to take that chance.

I'm going to buy a Flyers jersey soon, I'm gonna go for Sami K I think. I like the way he's come back from the rough patch he was in soon after he joined.

Be carefull...I bought a Williams jersey in October.

I am also a rams fan and just last year in the playoffs I bought a Grant Wistrom jersey and he is gone. My Lindross jersey went to shame too.

I'd go with Pitkanen, Johnsson or Gagne...they seem to be the only guys on that list who will be around long term.

How about Esche?

Or better yet J eff Carter or Mike Richards..just don't get a number on yet.

Why not just get one with your own last name and # of your choice on it? That's what I do... I never get traded.

Guys,what are the chances of Danny Markov staying? I pulled a sweet one and told my twin that I'd by him a Markov jeresy for our birthdays,and he'll buy me a Handzus one. Now i'm happy
Also,I was thinking of getting one with my last name on it,but noone knows how to spell it,so I figured,why bother

Good call Capn89...you can also claim that you're the most underrated player on these boards...seriously, get a you- know- who jersey with #16, never goes out of style. Just don't get carried away and get the teeth to match.

I like Kaps chances of being here a while. Hitch is grooming him to be another Jere Lehtinen. He is slowly becoming a top 2 fave for me. Other than he, I think KJ isn't going anywhere for a while.

I'd get a vintage Flyers jersey with someone like Clarke on it or whoever. I personally think the vintage jersey looks better, and the player name will be easily recognized, however they are a tad more expensive.

As for players on the current roster, how about Johnsson? He's one player I really don
t see going anywhere for a while.

My secret ambition is do buy a Donald Brashear jersey. If by some miracle, the Flyers win the Cup, I'd just get a Zhamnov or Esche one cause they would be the main proponents, but I'm getting way to far ahead of myself. I would pick a Gagne...

Get whoever you like. I understand wanting the player to stay on the team, but there is no reason not to wear a jersey once that player has left.

I own three authentics, a Shjon Podein, Valeri Zelepukin, and Simon Gagne. I still wear the first two.

My next one will probably be Alexi Zhamnov or Handzus, not sure who, but it'll probably be when all is said and done this playoffs.

I think number "67" would be much more fitting.
