    Hello, gang!

    Another Flyers fan here. I've read this board several years but finally accomplished to register because of this pandemic boredom. More of a long distance fan as I currently live in UK. Never lived or even visited Philly, but Flyers has always had some of my favorite players (from LeClair and Kapanen to Hartnell and Giroux) in their team and that's probably the reason for my "fandom". Flyers, NHL prospects and fantasy hockey are my passion and I'm happy to be able to share my thoughts and join discussion here.

    Can't wait for hockey to be back! ​

    He's a blind homer. Terrible player, even worse broadcaster.

    Ding, I should have listed Brind'amour too. He is my wife's favorite. She still wears his jersey, and received compliments for having the guts to wear it on Keith Primeau night.

    We were in Pittsburgh for a Philly Wings and Flyers games the weekend of their trade. We were in the same hotel as both teams. Every Flyer we ran into looked depressed. Saw everyone but 88 and Leclair.

    To this day even reading Kasparaitis' name makes me sneer.

    Name: Chadateit

    Age: 45

    Location: San Jose, CA (grew up in Bucks County, PA)

    Favorite Team(s): Flyers -- I love the game of hockey, and enjoy watching NHL games in general. I really don't care about other sports.

    Most Hated Team(s): Historically Isles, later Devils. These days, Pens.

    Favorite Flyers Player(s): Bobby Clarke, Pelle Lindberg, Hextall (the first time around), Mark Howe, Brindamour, Simmonds

    Most Hated Player(s): This list is too long to get into here, especially historically speaking.

    Position (if you play): Any forward position, though haven't played for 3 or 4 years now.

    Flyers fan since: 1975 -- birth. I was born a couple weeks after the 2nd cup win. There are baby pics of me in flyers gear. Some of my first sports memories were flyers-Isles finals.

    I have rarely missed a flyer's game since the late 90's, and watch a fair bit of hockey outside of the flyers, as well. Have been on and off online hockey communities since 1999 or so, but this is my first ever post on HF. ​
