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.

"It was in the spring and I was up in Montreal hitting some golf balls, getting ready for the summer and a friend of mine comes up to me and told me I got drafted," he said. "I asked who drafted me and he said Philadelphia.   I had to ask him where the heck is Philadelphia?   So the Flyers wanted to introduce the new team to the city and put all the players who got drafted on a float and drove down Broad Street.   We had more people on the float than there were people watching us. Having said that, the miracle is, seven years later we won the Stanley Cup and we had two million people come out and watch us.  How about that? "
