While watching some of the other first round playoff games, I could not help but notice the number of former Flyers on other playoff teams. There are quite a few! Then I decided to come up with a quick list of players to make a theoretical team.
Forwards - Patrick Sharp, Simon Gagne, Steve Downie, Justin Williams, Michal Handzus, Scottie Upshall, RJ Umberger, Aaron Asham, Rusty Fedotenko, Vinny Prospal, Mark Recchi, Jeoffery Lupul, Mike Knuble
This was just from memory with no research. This 'team' is pretty stacked at forward! But, the defense is a little thin and as usual the goaltending would be suspect. ha.
Please add your suggestions or thoughts. Thanks.
(p.s. how did the Flyers not win multiple cups with the best talent available before the salary cap?)
