Ranking the 5 Most Colorful Players in Philadelphia Flyers History

Ilya Bryzgalov may not have lived up to his contract, but he was rarely dull.

The Philadelphia Flyers have had many colorful characters wear the Orange and Black since they entered the NHL in 1967. These are players who left their mark either on or off the ice for being a little different or having a big and unique personality.

In compiling a list like this, the length of time a player stayed with the Flyers has to be taken into account, as does the player's influence with the Flyers organization and the fans. Memorable moments, a different style or a player who changed the way the game is played or looked at all count for something here.

Keep in mind that a "colorful" player need not necessarily be an outstanding hockey player, although if two players are roughly tied on this list, the better player will be given the higher ranking.

One of the toughest aspects of putting together a list like this is to limit it down to the final five candidates. Feel free to comment on any Flyers player you feel belongs on this list or if you feel a player already included deserves to be higher or lower than he was ranked. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
