    I thought maybe it would be fun to have a space to talk about some of our favorite moments in Flyers history.

    Claude's been around long enough now it's easy to forget some of the earlier career highlights


    Got chills listening to the call on this one!

    I truly started watching Flyers hockey in 2003/04 and holy **** that Primeau and Gagne video from Game 6 was so ****ing good. Holy hell did I lose it when that happened. Also, in the same year, this happened:

    Outside the two Cup years, maybe the greatest (most exciting, most memorable, most joyous, whatever) moment in our history.

    I was there (up in the nosebleeds) but damn! Still probably the best sporting event I've been to and I was at the 2008 World Series, Rutgers beating Louisville, last game at the Vet, first at CBP, and a slew of other ones.

    My first diehard season was after the 06 lockout. For me, the best moments have mostly been play-offs, but there's been some smaller ones mixed in. In almost ascending order:

    First up is a random one, my second live game in Philly and it's against my brother's Lightning team. An enjoyable night.

    This thread is reminding me of when I truly loved this organization..before Hakcocks arrival. Hopefully we return to glory. As of now, I dread their games rather than look forward to them.

    Pretend I posted Saunders' call of Carcillo's OT Goal against the Devils in 2010. The audio has completely disappeared and Jackson's call is garbage. He loses it and it's fantastic.

    Unless they win a Cup in my lifetime, my favorite Flyers moment will always be 9/19/92 -- the first time Lindros put on a Flyers uniform. That's the only time in my life I went out of my way to go to a preseason Flyers game.

    I've been a sports fan of terrible teams my entire life. The excitement and anticipation never leaves. Hakstol will.

    I think we are very close to getting it back. There is just one piece of **** in the way at the moment, and then we can see. Watching that video of JJ's goal I posted above, I was reminded how much I loved Derrick Smith - I mean, I ****ing loved Derrick Smith. I can feel similar feelings brewing for his numbersake, the Pimp. It's early, but it's brewing, albeit tempered by the tremendous apathy of growing older. If the kids can get up here and play and thrive, it is going to be awesome. Until then we just have to keep punching this punching bag.

    Dave Poulin's SH goal with the Flyers down 2 men in the Wales Conference Final from 1985. This goal put away Quebec and we went to the Stanley Cup Final. Hak would have benched Poulin for being aggressive on a penalty kill.

    Those Lavy teams were the comeback kings! They could come back from any deficit.

    Vs Pitt game 1. down 3 goals won. game 2 down 2 goals won. Game 3 down 1 goal won.

    I was only 8 at the time, but never heard the building louder than Game 6 of 2004 Conference Finals

    I have this weird nostalgia for and memories of the 2005/06 season, I guess because it was the first one I followed the team and the league.

    Some random choice highlights I remember that YouTube has video of:

    (3/3)

    And of course

    Non game-related memories:
    -Getting my first Flyers jersey for Christmas that year (away, Primeau with the captain's C)
    -Staying at the Holiday Inn by the arenas the night before the carnival only to find out that CSN was blacked out and we couldn't watch the game that night
    -Trying to get tickets to said game at the StubHub counter in the lobby, only to back out because my parents didn't trust StubHub
    -Ultimately listening to said game on the radio in our hotel room
    -Meeting Carter, Pitkanen, Primeau, Stevenson, Savage, and Hatcher at the Carnival -Noting how grumpy all of them seemed except the first two (though I forgive Keith b/c of the concussion and all)

    JJ Daignault was my favorite moment ever. I've realized every spring I'ved wanted to relive that moment. That;s how I became a big Flyers fan. It was a special time. I was 14, finishing 8th grade. Everyone in school was into it.
    I was in tears at the end of game 7. If they ever do win a cup in my lifetime, I'll be thinking of that 1987 team.

    2004 really was really tough for me too. It was the one season where I thought they were the best team in the league. And to lose to upstart team in Tampa was a tough pill to swallow. By 2004, that era of Flyers' teams had paid their dues. It should have been their season.

    I enjoyed the Flyers fans putting a NJ devil's fan in a chokehold....it was around the late 90's when I really despised that team. Somewhere I have a lamenated picture from the Daily News....I had it on my desk at work for years
