Former Flyers

Looking around the league, you could put together a great team of former Flyers. It might look something like this:

Forwards:

Versteeg Sharp Lupol

Williams Richards Prospal

Downie Carter Umberger

Knuble Langkow Gagne

Defense:

Sbisa Siederberg

Pitaken O'Donnel

Eminger Alberts

Goalies:

Emory Boucher

Additionally, you could almost come up with another team:

Asham Handzus Fedatenko

Upshall Leino Powe

Carcillo Nodl Eager

Jones/Woywitka

Picard/Vandermeer

There has been an amazing amount of high quality players that have passed through the Flyers team over the last decade. Some of them just didn't fit, some were too young and were traded away to improve the team immediately, some of them just left through Free Agency.

If I could get back an entire RW/C/LW line and a defensive pairing, it would be Williams/Sharp/Lupol and Sbisa/Pitaken. It seems like all these players were traded while young and they never were able to get a chance to really develop with the Flyers. All of them have gone on to be pretty good to great players for other teams.

It would have been nice to have Gagne finish his career here, but a decade of his best hockey I'll definitely take. Umberger seemed to like playing here and I enjoyed watching him. Richards and Carter I would have been happy to have as Flyers for life, but I think in the end both those trades were positives for the Flyers and could help them to be a dominant team for the next 5-6 years.

What about you? Which Flyers would you have liked the most to stay? Which trade or release of a player was the most difficult for you to accept?
