Starter: Bernie Parent
Backup: Ron Hextall
Every time a goalie comes through Philadelphia these days, he immediately gets the Hextall comparison.
Ron Hextall was the last reliable, iconic goaltender to wear a Flyers' uniform. Since then, the team has gone through the likes of Ray Emery, Martin Biron, Sergei Bobrovsky and Brian Boucher (twice). And those are the ones whose names you recognize.
Hextall clearly has a place on this roster due to his legacy, but the starting job goes to the man to whom Hextall was constantly compared: Bernie Parent.
Parent was a mainstay not just in the Philadelphia net, but on local bumper stickers as well. "Only the Lord saves more than Bernie Parent," read the novelty item.
Before losing his career to an errant stick that damaged his eye, Parent was the end-all, be-all of Flyers' goaltending.
Come to think of it, he still is.
