Few teams have drafted as many quality forwards in recent years as the Flyers. They also like to trade a lot of them, including this impressive trio above. If you don't remember Patrick Sharp's time in Philadelphia, you're forgiven because he only played 65 games with the team before being traded to Chicago for Matt Ellison and a third-round pick back in 2005. Fortunately they were able to get a lot more in return for Carter (Sean Couturier, Jakub Voracek) and Richards (Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn).
Another outstanding trio. Claude Giroux is now the face of the franchise and the Flyers best player. You could probably make this your top line, or at least put Giroux on the top line, but I wanted to keep Richards and Carter together.
I don't know that Joni Pitkanen ever lived up to the hype that surrounded him when the Flyers picked him fourth overall back in 2002, but he's been a solid player throughout his career. Dennis Seidenberg has always been one of the more underrated defenseman in the league.
A young pairing with some upside, but the Flyers clearly haven't had the same success on the blue line that they've had when it comes to drafting and developing forwards. Though, Luca Sbisa was one of the key parts of the trade that resulted in them landing Chris Pronger a few years back.
Defensive scratch: Jeff Woywitka
Goaltenders: Brian Boucher - Johan Hedberg
It wouldn't be a Flyers team if we didn't look at the goaltending situation and scream in terror.
