The Philadelphia Flyers are a team with a deep rooted history.
Brought to the city by Ed Snider, the Flyers were a part of the National Hockey League's original expansion in the 1967-68 season, and became the first non-original six franchise to hoist the Stanley Cup, doing so in back-to-back seasons, 1974 and 1975.
Despite its proud history and overall success, the Flyers image has never been associated with corner-picking skill players, snipers, if you will.
No, hockey in Philadelphia will always be represented by a toothless Bobby Clarke hoisting the Stanley Cup, Slap Shot -esque pre-game brawls, and Ron Hextall jumping Chris Chelios, in the playoffs no less.
The Philadelphia Flyers are the Broad Street Bullies and the City of Brotherly Love would not have it any other way.
Nevertheless, the Flyers do have quite a few iconic (and several infamous) snipers in their franchise's history.
In the interest of bringing light to the more skilled side of Philadelphia's hockey past and present, I present the 20 greatest snipers in franchise history.
Let me know what you think.
