The Big 50: Philadelphia Flyers is a lively, comprehensive look at the 50 men and moments that made the Flyers the Flyers. Experienced sportswriters Sam Carchidi and Wayne Fish recount the living history of the franchise, counting down from No. 50 to No. 1. This collection brilliantly brings to life the team's remarkable story, from its growing pains as an expansion team to the Broadstreet Bullies era, to more recent stars like captain Claude Giroux.
