Ranking the Flyers: Number 1

With the summer winding down, noteworthy news stories few and far between, and a strong desire for training camp to begin, we've decided to do something new here at Broad Street Hockey.  As the great Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe, Aaron Sorkin) said, "good writers borrow from other writers.  Great writers steal from them outright."  So, with great appreciation to J.P. over at Japers' Rink, we are humbling borrowing their idea. 

So here, we are asking you the reader to rank the Flyers in terms of value.  Who is the most valuable player on the Flyers, who is the second most valuable, and so on.  You may ask what valuable means, but we won't define it for you.  It means what you think it means.  Put another way, if you could only keep one of the remaining players - because of what he brings on the ice or off it, his upside, what he could fetch in a trade, and so on - who would it be?  Defend your vote in the comments.  Let's get started with #1.
