Ranking the 5 Worst Trades in Philadelphia Flyers History
GEORGE WIDMAN/Associated Press
The Flyers gave up a lot to get Eric Lindros.

As the NHL trade deadline approaches, it is a good time to review the worst trades in Philadelphia Flyers history.

The Flyers have been a very successful franchise since entering the league in 1967, but that doesn't mean the team hasn't made its share of bad deals.

These trades just didn't work out for the Flyers because what the team gave away ended up being much more valuable than what they received in return.

Trades are graded on both their short-term and long-term impact. Obviously, if a deal helped either side win a Stanley Cup, that is a major consideration when arriving at a grade.

When draft choices are involved in a transaction, who was selected with that pick gets a lot more consideration when grading rather than who was still available in the draft when the pick was actually made.

Feel free to comment on any of the trades on this list or to mention a deal you feel belongs here but was not included. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
