New Year's Eve at Citizens Bank Park will be a special event for several generations of hockey fans.

Legends from the Philadelphia Flyers' and New York Rangers' past will dust off the skates for an alumni exhibition two days before the 2012 NHL Winter Classic takes place.  

Having unwrapped a pair of tickets to the Winter Classic Alumni Game on Christmas morning, I gave the Flyers roster a second look.  

Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent, Rick Tocchet, Mark Howe, John LeClair and Eric Lindros headline a team of memorable Broad Street Bullies sure to bring the sense of nostalgia to the Winter Classic that all are looking for.  

But then I started thinking about some of the players I really would have loved to see participate in this game.  You know, the guys you rooted for who weren't the All-Stars and top jersey sellers, but players you felt a connection with inexplicably.  

Well, here's my list. 

Read, laugh, question, do what you will.  Just be sure to tell me who your favorite alumni were, and what players you believe were carelessly omitted from the Winter Classic Alumni Game roster.
