9. Brian Propp

Third all-time in franchise history in Points (849) and Points per Game (1.07) was the offensive star for the Philadelphia Flyers throughout the 1980’s.  The Left Winger would have four seasons of 90 or more Points but was also adept at checking and the defensive aspect of the game.  He would go to four All Star Games, had a tenth place finish in Hart Trophy balloting in 1986 and was second overall in Playoff Scoring in 1987 when he took Philadelphia to the Stanley Cup and pushed the Edmonton Oilers to a seven game series.

Our Top 50 All-Time Philadelphia Flyers are now up

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Philadelphia Flyers who have won their conference eight times and would win the Stanley Cup twice. Those wins took place in the second in 1974 and 1975, making them the first expansion team to win it all.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following: 

  1. Advanced Statistics.
  1. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.
  1. Playoff accomplishments.
  1. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2018-19 Season.

The complete list can be found herebut as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

  1. Bobby Clarke
  1. Bernie Parent
  1. Bill Barber
  1. Eric Lindros
  1. Mark Howe

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  Look for the Top 50 Atlanta Braves next.

As always we thank you for your support.

47. Brian Propp

In 1999 Master Card named the all Canadian Junior Hockey Team. This team featured current Hall of Famers, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Guy LaFleur, Denis Potvin, Bobby Orr and Bernie Parent. It also featured Saskatchewan native Brian Propp who lit up the lights for the Brandon Wheat Kings. Propp’s first NHL season saw him on a line with Bobby Clarke and Reggie Leach. He held his own and for the next ten years, he was a consistent offensive threat on Broad Street.
