List Rules Vote for the players you think were the best Flyers based on their time on the ice for Philadelphia, not necessarily their popularity.

The Philly Flyers were the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup, once it was no longer just a league of the Original Six. Winners in 1973 and 1974, the Philadelphia Flyers still have it in them. Some of the greatest Flyers in team history are also some of the most recognizable faces in the league. Many Flyers have taken home individual honors, even when the team as a whole has faltered.

If you want hall of fame players, the Flyers have them. Does the name Bobby Clarke ring a bell? He's famous for playing dirty on the ice, but with great success. In addition to Clarke, players like Bill Barber, Eric Lindros, and Mark Howe are further proof of the great players in history who have scored for the Flyers. Of course, Bernie Parent is regarded as the Flyers's best goalie of all time, though Ron Hextall also gave him a run for his money.

Who are some of the greatest Philadelphia Flyers of all time? That's not an easy question, especially when you consider who has played for the team. But it's up to you decide who are the best players to have ever played for the Flyers. Are these guys the 
greatest hockey players of all time or even the best players today? That's up to you to decide but for now, take a look and vote up and down your favorite Flyers of all time.
