Philadelphia Flyers: Best Players in History by Number

The Flyers have a long and storied history; just ask them, and they'll tell you. The team just announced they will be retiring No. 2 in honor of recent Hall of Fame inductee Mark Howe.

Howe's No. 2 will be the fifth number retired by the Flyers, joining Bernie Parent's No. 1, Barry Ashbee's No. 4, Bill Barber's No. 7 and Bobby Clarke's No. 16.

In honor of No. 2 being retired, here's a look at the best Flyers players ever to wear each number. Being that the Flyers are a hockey team and not a football team, and therefore did not have many players wear No. 73 for example, we'll limit this to only numerals worn by at least three significant players in the team's history.

So, strap in and get ready for a long trip through Flyers history.
