WATCH VIDEO: FLYERS’ CHRISTMAS GREETING POEM FROM 1984!

With Christmas just six days away, this 1984-85 Flyers poetic greeting is perfect!

Courtesy of ESPN.com:

  • Our first reader is Bill Barber, who nails his two lines pretty much flawlessly. Spoiler alert: He’s pretty much the only one.
  • Enforcer Glen Cochrane is up next. He would be traded just a few weeks after this video was shot, which was sad because it pretty much ended the “Hockey players throwing haymakers while wearing full-length black pants” era.
  • Mark Howe (photo above) does not look thrilled about this, but will play along because he knows that if he comes across like a bad sport, the Hockey Hall of Fame will make him wait 13 years to be inducted for no good reason.
  • Hey look, it’s the last known instance of Dave Poulin saying anything out loud about a cap without making Maple Leafs fans swear at their radio.
  • Ray Allison is next, followed by Ed Hospodar, who’s probably best known for earning a spot on Santa’s naughty list a few years later by starting the infamous Flyers-Canadiens pregame brawl. They’re followed by trainer Kurt Mundt.
