My favorite team. Wish they would've went all the way.

However, there's no way Seidenberg is on the top pairing, unless you were just listing in no particular order.

on paper, one of the best flyers forward lineups of my lifetime. The d pairings i listed were random off my head but youre right, pitk and seid were def the third pair. Both were turnover machines at that point in their careers and were prob too green to even be with the big club but the blueline was a mess that year due to dejardins injury and trading away all the other vet dmen like weinrich, yuskevich and therien. Johnsson and markov were decent but the remaining options were so thin that hitch played kapanen back there for majority of the playoffs ha. That playoff run was fucking awesome tho...primeau was a beast.

Seidenberg was a mess. He turned out to be a very solid defenseman (and a two time Cup winner), but he was scary back there.

I remember in the Toronto series, he dressed for game six but didn't play one shift. In game 6 against TB, he played one shift in the first period, where he turned it over at the other blueline and LeCavalier potted one the other way. Didn't see him for the rest of the game. lol.

I think age really got the best of that team, forwards wise. LeClair was barely visible the entire playoffs, Amonte was a non-factor. Even Zhamnov, who was a great late season pickup, sort of fell off during the playoffs. JR was coming off that puck in the face, so he wasn't in the best shape. Primeau put that team on his back.

I felt that Vladimir Malakhov was a solid addition to the blue line as well. I'll never forget that goal from the NJ series where it went Malakhov to Zhamnov to Markov. Basically the series winning goal. But for sure, missing DeJardins hurt, as did Ragnarsson later in the playoffs (broken finger). I will always love Danny Markov. Dude played hard every shift. Wasn't the best, but always hustled.

And I honestly can't understand why Robert Esche couldn't find work in the NHL after that 06/07 season. He's a more than serviceable backup, and I think if you put a good team in front of him, a capable starting goaltender. I'd take him over every single goalie the Flyers have had since his departure, and that includes Bryzgalov.

One of the greatest goals in NHL playoff history. I mean the unbelievable luck, combined with the skill, is just breath taking. I damn near did a front flip watching that.

Gary Thorne is still my favorite play by play man ever. Even more than Jim Jackson.

Pretty sure I can recite the entire Primeau call, including Bill Clement's "OHHHH!" right before he slams it in the net.

Fuck yes. I totally agree with you on all that, and especially about esche. Its remarkable that every starting goalie theyve had in the last decade never went on any success after leaving the flyers, but were all hailed as the potential missing piece when they were here

I love this. Shame preems had to retire.

Gagnes first goal in that game was nuts, he flipped the puck up and batted it in.

What was amazing is every time Primeau touched the puck, the crowd nearly cheered. You can hear it right before the Gagne OT goal. There was a feeling that something amazing would happen every time he had the puck on his stick.

Also, he had the primary assist on Gagne's goal earlier in the game. He kicked it to him off a rush. I think there's video of it.

Gagne also didn't have a great playoffs that year. I remember hearing how Hitch had a meeting with him calling him out. He had a great game six though.

He's actually lucky the OT goal went in. He shot it right into Khabibuilin but it somehow squeaked through.

2:47 to 2:51. I can't believe the Leafs didn't score. Esche came up HUGE. Whoever that Leaf was tried to bank it off him from behind the net, and Esche saw that and lifted his pad so it went through the crease. Fucking crazy.

Roenick's goal still gets me emotional. One of the most disgusting goals of all time.
