Nine former Flyers are among the top 100 players in NHL history.
The list was compiled by an NHL panel to commemorate the league's 100-year history. The league, curiously, did not rank the top 100 players in any special order.
Some of the former Flyers on the list just had a cup of coffee with the team. Some were mainstays like Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent, and Eric Lindros.
Other former Flyers on the list: Paul Coffey, Peter Forsberg, Jaromir Jagr, Adam Oates, Chris Pronger, and Darryl Sittler.
Hall of Fame left winger Bill Barber was snubbed. So were Evgeni Malkin, Mark Recchi, Zdena Chara, Dale Hawerchuk, Jarome Iginla, Mark Howe, Claude Giroux, Joe Thornton, and Carey Price, among others
Just six active players are on the list: Jagr, Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, and Alex Ovechkin
Parent was one of 15 goalies selected.
"Just think about this. There were a lot of great players who have played in this league, and to be selected as one of the top 100, what an honor this is. It is just incredible," Parent said. "When you look back at my career, what a beautiful ride it has been."
Parent recalled when he learned he was selected by the Flyers from Boston in the expansion draft.
