The Flyers and Rangers have announced their rosters for the annual alumni game played before the Winter Classic every year. While the Rangers roster is a complete snooze, the Flyers have a lineup full of legends as well as fan favorites. We won't be seeing a reunion of the Legion of Doom line, but Lindros & LeClair will be present with Eric Desjardins backing them up on the blue line.
Forwards: Bill Barber, Bob Clarke, Jim Dowd, Orest Kindrachuk, Eric Lindros, Ken Linseman, Dave Poulin, Jeremy Roenick, Al Hill, Bob Kelly, John LeClair, Shjon Podein, Brian Propp, Reggie Leach, Mark Recchi, Rick Tocchet
Defensemen: Terry Carkner, Eric Desjardins, Larry Goodenough, Derian Hatcher, Mark Howe, Brad Marsh, Kjell Samuelsson, Chris Therien, Joe Watson
Goaltenders: Mark LaForest and Neil Little
Coaches: Pat Quinn (head coach), Mike Nykoluk and Keith Primeau (assistant coaches)
Ambassadors: Gary Dornhoefer, Bernie Parent, Dave Schultz
As Travis Hughes points out, the goalies are really the only disappointing part of the roster, which is of course probably appropriate. The funny thing is that John Vanbiesbrouck will play for the Rangers, otherwise he might have actually been a good option for Philadelphia.
My questions is, was Roman Čechmánek too busy?
