Today, four years removed from the Lindros era, the Flyers are recognized around the NHL as one of the most attractive teams in the league. "I don't think a player can ruin the image of a team," said Flyers defenseman Eric Desjardins, who lived through the Lindros era and is beginning his 11th season with the Flyers. "I think it's more who is on top and how they treat people. "You talk around the league and there aren't many guys who treat their players like Clarkie and [team chairman Ed] Snider.
