Greatest Flyers

10) Tim Kerr

Kerr had a spectacular eight-year run where he had four consecutive 50-goal seasons. Injuries hampered his career, but Kerr was a standout player for the Flyers when he was healthy.

6) Claude Giroux

For the decade of the 2010s, Giroux trailed only Alexander Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, and Patrick Kane in scoring; that is an elite company!

4) Mark Howe

Howe had his best season in 1985โ€“86, as he posted some of the best numbers ever by an NHL Defenseman. For the season, this “Star-Studded” Defenseman in Howe potted 24 goals and added 58 assists for a total of 82 points. Moreover, he led the NHL with a crazy, insane, mind-blowing +85 rating. Howe also potted seven shorthanded goals on the season. In 1987 he helped lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals, losing in 7 games to the Edmonton Oilers. Unfortunately, Howe finished runner-up in Norris Trophy voting to Edmonton’s Paul Coffey.

3) Bernie Parent

A career-ending eye injury leaves us with an incomplete career. But what he accomplished will never be forgotten in Philadelphia. Parent was the first goaltender in Flyers history to win the Vezina, Stanley Cup, and Conn Smythe trophies in the same season (he did it the following season too), and his 47 wins were an NHL record until 2006.

2) Eric Lindros

Lindros’s peak was short, but within his first five seasons, he had won the Hart Memorial Trophy as MVP of the league and averaged 1.47 points per game after his monster 1995-96 season, where he tallied 47 goals and 68 assists. He finished his career as the Flyers leader in points per game (1.36), goals created per game (0.53), and goals per game (0.60).
